I didn't grow up with a lot of the characters so playing the game can be interesting as I figure out who is on Batman's side and who is against him.
The characters take a bit of getting used to, but since they are supposed to be made out of Lego it is understandable that they look a bit square. There is a bit for most people, action and building or breaking as needed. Mr 3 often asks me to do some of the finer parts for him like the shooting and aiming. I was expecting it to be a bit easier than it is but I'm learning who is good and who is bad and how it all fits together.
I watched the kids trying to drive the various cars and it is great that if you go over the side of the cliff you just get picked up and put back on the road and if you crash into a tree then it breaks apart into lego blocks.
Next holidays I'm going to have to sit down with the kids and try and get through the whole game.
