Just picked up Lego Batman 2 last night.  We started playing and we lost power.  So back at it tonight.  It comes with 2 DLC codes for 5 hero's and 5 Villans.  I have to say playing alot of the Star Wars Lego and the previous Batman it is strange to have dialogue now.  But it is a welcome change.  Especially with some of the familiar voices.  

Oh and the driving controls are terrible now.

ILego Bats 2 is a decent game but like most of the lego series it's the collection of items characters etc.. that makes the game last. My little ones managed to beat it in less than a week.

 My biggest complaint with LEGO Batman 2 is story length.  You only get 15 playable levels.  Batman 1 had 30 (15 hero, 15 villain).  Harry Potter 1 and Pirates of the Caribbean had 24.  Even LEGO Harry Potter 2 had 18 levels (6 per movie).

And yes, wandering all of Gotham City trying to get ALL the gold bricks is a pain.  The "Ping" system helps, especially with red bricks and citizens in peril, but the 250 gold bricks is a pain in the @$$.  And I don't count hunting those down as part of the "game" - it's an extra that is often more tiresome than it's worth.

The voice acting is great (glad to be rid of the "mumble, mumble" stuff of older games), and I loved hearing both the Batman score and John Williams' Superman theme.  But that wasn't enough, IMHO, to overcome the game's limits.

I give it a B-.
