LEGO Batman: DC Super Heroes For iOS: Vengeance Has Never Been This Cool [REVIEW]

I love Batman because he is one of those rare superheroes who doesn’t possess a single super power but only uses his money and brain and cool gear. Now a new iOS-based Batman game – LEGO Batman: DC Super Heroes – shows off Bruce Wayne’s class as he takes on the baddies terrorizing Gotham City.

This is one of the best (if not the greatest) LEGO games I’ve ever played, and I've played a lot of them. The game sees Batman and Robin join forces with other well-known DC super heroes including Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and more to stop the infamous villains Lex Luthor and The Joker from destroying Gotham City.

Probably one of the best things about the game that you will initially notice is that players can either choose from a usual virtual stick and buttons setup or an intuitive touch interface. However, once in the game, your entire focus will shift to collecting studs (the in-game currency), encountering well-kept secrets, making new contraption out of bricks and, of course, beating up the bad guys.

Moreover, it’s quite amazing how Warner Bros. managed to recreate the entire LEGO experience for mobile while keeping everything intact with smartly crafted levels, a boatload of exploration and everything else that you expect out of a LEGO game.

However, every game has its faults and so does LEGO Batman: DC Super Heroes. The controls at times can be a pain to handle. Sometimes they're too laggy and take too long to respond to your on-screen command.

It can also be irritating when your AI partners keep getting in your way even when you're not fighting crime. But these are minor issues and don’t really undermine the greatness of the game.

That fun quotient also gets a massive boost with as many as 80 playable characters that can be unlocked in the game.
