    LEGO DC Super-Villains offers a lot of great things to like, despite my small quibbles. The title makes up for redundant core gameplay with its sheer variety of playable characters, robust character creation suite, and abundance of side content to complete. Meanwhile, its relatively by-the-books story is bolstered by phenomenal voice acting and classic LEGO charm. It may not be the mature, gritty super-villains game that many would like, but LEGO DC Super-Villains is still worth your time and money.

    It’s good to be bad in LEGO DC Super-Villains and you should let out your inner Joker by getting involved… but there’s a bit of room for improvement in this one. Batman still reigns supreme in the LEGO DC realm.

    The best LEGO game for a while, perfectly pitched for couch co-op family fun. [Christmas 2018, p.93]

    While the formula has not changed much in these games, they are still fun if you enjoy the subject matter. Being a massive DC fan it is cool to see some weird and obscure villains in this ridiculous roster. LEGO DC Super Villains might feel like a game built on a template, but that doesn’t make it not fun. If you are not tired of the formula and love playing the bad guy, this title might be for you.

    LEGO DC Super-Villains has a lot of fun with its source material, and although it does indeed prove that it’s good to be bad, taking some steps away from its play-it-safe formula would have been much, much better. That said, there’s a plethora of exciting content, depth and replay value on offer here, making this a must have for fans of the series. Just don’t expect this to be LEGO’s defining moment.

    LEGO DC Super-Villains doesn’t take any risk and stays true to the old formula. But it’s still well-crafted and it’s a good fit for any youngster trying to step in the gaming world.

    LEGO DC Super-Villains does little to distinguish itself from past LEGO games, to the point that it still features some of the franchise’s trademark technical issues and glitches.

    There’s a decent amount of characters available and each one has their own abilities and little quirks which makes them fun and stand out.There’s a decent amount of characters available and each one has their own abilities and little quirks which makes them fun and stand out. I’ve always enjoyed the presentation side of things in each LEGO game and once again I enjoyed what both the visuals and sound design had to offer in this game.
    I found the gameplay to be better than ever in this game because they’ve sorted out a few issues that have dogged some LEGO game’s in the past. The story is very well written and the added humour and little details included here and there keeps the story fun and interesting throughout. You’re given more freedom than in previous LEGO game’s and being able to fine tune your created character was an addition I thoroughly enjoyed. There’s a few technichal issues that show themselves every now and then but thankfully none of these issues harm the fun factor too much. I got stuck a few times during my time with the game which was a little frustrating. Overall I’ve always enjoyed playing LEGO game’s because it offers you fun and enjoyable moments unlike any other game. Despite this though I can’t help but feel that the series of game’s has grown a little stale over recent years, well that is until now. Don’t get me wrong LEGO DC Super-Villains hasn’t reinvented anything as such but what it has done is finely tuned certain aspects whilst also giving you a lot more freedom in the process. This freedom then comes in the form of being able to create and finely tune your own character and this without a doubt makes the already very good story stand out even more. Another thing that stands out even more than in previous LEGO game’s is its gameplay. Everything just feels much more smoother this time around and whilst it still suffers with a few technichal issues I was easily able to look past them because the fun factor never dwindled throughout my time with the game. In fact it was that fun that the frustration created by getting stuck every now and then was never a problem either. Without a doubt then LEGO DC Super-Villains gets a very big recommendation from me because in a way this game gives the series a new lease of life and if you’re a fan of these types of game’s then you will no doubt have fun with this game from start to finish.

Přesto ale série pořád hraje na jistotu a nějaké novinky a změny bychom určitě uvítali. Pro fanoušky se pak jedná o povinnost, ale ani tentokrát nečekejte žádnou revoluci. Expand
