LEGO Batman 2 DC Super Heroes Video Game Preview

This week I attended a gaming preview for LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes which is launching this summer. The game features all of the co-op action found in LEGO games along with the ability to explore Gotham City as your favorite heroes from the DC Comics universe. Come on, I know many of you would love to play a LEGO style game as a DC Comics universe superhereo!

During the event I was able to see the game played in a variety of different ways. I first saw it played with a single player and learned about getting around the game, using special character suits and trying to catch the bad guys. Then I joined the game in coop play mode to play the game as Robin and the real fun happened. I finished my preview playing the game using Nintendo 3DS.

While there's minor differences using the different gaming platforms, the game play itself and how the character interact are the same. Players can enjoy the same gaming quality across all platforms.

At the event gamers could enjoy DC Super Heroes themed fun snacks. I was loving that Wonder Woman was included with the big boys like Batman and Superman! She made a really cute LEGO character.

As for the gaming world, it might take some getting use to for new players. It's just a bit busy and there's no guides to let you know what you need to do or where to go. You sorta figure things out as you go along in the game. To gain points you smash and break objects up then collection the tiny coins. As with other LEGO game, to defeat the bad guys you hit them and they break into pieces. Just like real life LEGO's.

While you can enjoy playing the game alone, I think it's better when played the way a real super hero team would, with friends and family using the easy drop-in/drop-out co-op play that features dynamic split screen (Xbox 360, PS3, Wii and PC). I saw that in action and LOVED it.
