    LEGO DC Super-Villains is a charmingly funny game that combines the joy of LEGO with the creative coolness of the DC roster. The game isn't hard by any means, but it's a great casual romp through an interesting story. The massive roster is impressive and the detail put into each character makes each one of them worth putting time into.

    The LEGO formula may be growing tired at this point, but LEGO DC Super-Villains is still one of the best games TT Games has produced and is an excellent use of the DC licence.

    Overall, while it’s still mostly the same as previous titles in the Lego series, Lego DC Super-Villains offers some much needed twist in terms of story, shining a light on the life of the bad guys and girls in the comic book universe. Add in the superb voice acting, the many different powers that you get to wield as the villains, as well as the huge amount of activities scattered throughout its open world and you’re bound to have a good time being bad.

    There are few cute changes to the well known LEGO way of gaming, but the story is so hard to follow and the many characters that are not too well known make it even more chaotic. Too bad, cause this game is really funny, combined with excellent voice acting.

    This new LEGO game is mostly very atmospheric thanks to the setting, the characters and the story. Creating your own character is a great feature but apart from that, LEGO DC Super-Villains is still built on the archaic LEGO-game template. Which means all the criticism aimed at LEGO games in general, apply here too. Familiar bugs, messy coop multiplayer, not enough buttons et cetera. You know exactly what you're going to get if you've played any other LEGO game in the past. Worth it if you really like the DC universe.

    The collectibles are easier to amass, the puzzles have some challenge, and the character creation is enjoyable. If nothing else, you get to hear Mark Hamill’s sillier version of the Joker. That alone makes the price of admission worth it.

    Ultimately, Lego DC Super-Villains goes down as another cookie-cutter Lego game, and while there's still plenty of merry mayhem to unleash, it's the same kind of mayhem we've seen before. What should be as wild and riotous as the Clown Prince of Crime comes off as just another mild-mannered reporter.

The story is fun, the voice talent involved is incredible (Mark Hamill, Kevin Conroy, Susan Eisenberg, Yvette Nicole Brown, Tara Strong.. the list goes on and on), the levels are diverse, and the hub world is loads of fun to explore. The wide cast of characters from DC Comics are all given their own personal charms to differentiate each and every one of the nearly 200 character roster. No longer do characters feel "copy and pasted," as the animations for each character really set them apart. The character customizer is also the best yet, with a plethora of new options added to truly expand who you can create.

    On the other hand, if you're not into LEGO games, or haven't played one before, this is an excellent way to start. They're simple, stress-free games that are fun for all ages. LEGO DC Super-Villains is packed to the brim with DC comics goodness, and I couldn't recommend this entry into the franchise more.

    Traveler's Tales is an English company that has developed projects such as Sonic 3D Blast and Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex, but theirTraveler's Tales is an English company that has developed projects such as Sonic 3D Blast and Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex, but their specialization is different. Since 2008, this studio has been dedicated to the LEGO brand and there are almost countless number of LEGO branded games that the studio has already released in a decade. And this without counting the games developed by the English division of the company (TT Fusion).

    Traveler's Tales once again picked up the DC Comics universe, but now they have opted for another approach, giving greater focus to the villains. This means that villains like Joker, Harley Quinn, Lex Luthor, Darkseid, Ultraman and Sinestro are present in LEGO DC Super-Villains. But I said "greater focus". As it couldn't be, heroes such as Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash and Green Lantern were not left out and even playable.

    Commissioner Gordon oversees the transfer of The Rookie to Stryker Island in Metropolis. The Rookie is caught after he has been illegally placed in Professor Ivo's laboratory. With a hand of the incarcerated Lex Luthor, Gordon says that the Rookie had access to a movement that allows him to consume superpowers coming from Project Amazo. However, Commissioner Gordon didn't count with the presence of Mercy Graves, who helps free Rookie and Lex Luthor from prison. What happens from here? Well, that's something you'll find out when you play this title. What I can say about the story mode is that, despite being simplistic, I notice that it have charm; humor is simple but effective. I can even say that the campaign of this LEGO DC Super-Villains gives a small snap to the latest DC movies.

    LEGO DC Super-Villains is an action game and platforms in the third person, like LEGO's previous LEGO games. Overcoming a particular obstacle, building a specific object, completing puzzles and defeating bosses is the usual cycle in the series and is also part of the LEGO DC Super-Villains menu. And while it's fun in the early days, it quickly becomes a bit annoying due to the over-repetitiveness of the above cycle, coupled with the fact that the gameplay, coupled with the camera that doesn't help in some situations, is sometimes tricky. Boss fights aren't challenging because they use the same structure. Surely these Traveler's Tales LEGO have been successful, but the producer has to start adding something new in the upcoming LEGO game and reviewing the problems in the gameplay because it isn't the first time these problems appear. But it's still a fun title anyway. Don't forget the cooperative mode that helps make the game even more fun.

    Although it's a long way from being a Grand Theft Auto, the free roam of the LEGO DC Super-Villains comes to help you get an idea of what a world is like with the Danish brand. Gotham, Metropolis and the Apokolis are the sites that are present in this mode. There are several sub-missions, races (time-trials) and challenges to entertain the player, but little more than that. We have over 150 characters to buy or unlock and they all have different powers and abilities from one to the another.

    Graphics? Meet the requirements. Soundtrack? He is competent, although in one instance i caught a bug in which police music was activated sometimes, even without me being chased by the police. Traveler's Tales unfortunately didn't innovate and did not create anything that would differ from this other LEGO games. And the formula that has been successful in other games, may no longer work from now on. But that doesn't make the LEGO DC Super-Villains a bad game. Despite your problems, it's simple, fun and friendly.

    Veredict: LEGO DC Super-Villains is fun like the other LEGO titles of this studio, but something innovative is still not presented.

    It’s fun. Wish you got to play as your own character more. The voice acting is top notch.
