    This is going to be a review for Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham for the WII U. This game is the perfect mixture of action and puzzle. Unlike earlier Lego games the puzzles are challenging enough to be fun, but not simple enough that they would frustrate an adult. This video game not only has 15 levels, there is a bonus level which is a tribute to the 1966 television series. The design of the levels are fun, and really plays a tribute to the rich comic history of Detective Comics. This being the third Lego game in the series, the character selection doesn’t feel repetitive or stale.

    Pros:
    -Outside of story mode, there is an entire world to explore including the bonus 1966 television series level, The Batcave, The Hall of Justice, The Legion of Doom headquarters, and The Watchtower.
    -It is easier to explore levels with the ability to switch character costumes with the push of a button.
    -Each level has enough new activities that this title doesn’t become boring and repetitive.
    – When playing on the Wii U in two player mode player one can play while viewing the touch-pad screen, while player 2 can play while viewing the television. No longer have to play in 2 player mode with a split screen.

    Con:
    – This game has too many glitches. During the 15- Level story I experienced about 4 glitches, all which caused me to have to replay the level and loss the level progress.

    This game is amazing. I was so excited to see there was another Lego video game and this one did not disappoint!

    Veteran Lego gamers will be happy to note at least two improvements in the game, which is in the usual Lego video game structure. Not only when making custom characters are you able to click on a feature icon and browse a labeled display of those pieces laid out in the style of the character selection (which is EXTREMELY helpful as the lighting and other issues often make it difficult to distinguish features), but the red brick extras stay on permanently! I don’t know about anyone else, but I for one always forgot to turn them on until halfway through. X)
    There are also many other new features to the game, as it is a new game, including remakes of the previous Batman game characters. I have not even gotten close to figuring out everything in this game! 🙂

    There are a few drawbacks to this game though.
    For one thing, whenever a character with a theme song (Superman etc.) starts flying, their theme song plays. This is common to the Lego games, and personally I enjoy it. Wonder Woman never had a theme in previous games, but now they have given her a quite “oldies” theme which is not too bad altogether; however, it gets “stuck” if you will, and continues playing for a long time, overriding other characters’ themes, and just pretty much getting annoying. It is not hard to get rid of, either don’t be Wonder Woman, or turn off music in settings. I had this problem before in the Marvel Superheroes Lego game when jumping off the Helicarrier they would play loud falling music for a long long time after landing in the city. That was a little annoying too. Maybe it’s just my console/game?
    Another drawback is the cars. I won’t spoil where or how you drive, but personally I dislike the driving features of this game. Instead of continuing in the AMAZING car abilities of Chase McCain and Marvel, they have decreased in quality. Not only are the controls completely different, but the car moves in a dizzying and undesirable fashion and at an unnatural and unhelpful speed. I did not actually expect there to be much car driving in this game, for it is definitely more of a flying game; and thankfully driving is more of a bonus feature than a necessity (like in Chase McCain).

    Anyway, there are many pros and a few cons in this game, like in any game, and my complaints/compliments concerning this game may just be my personal opinion. However, I have never once regretted a Lego video game. I recommend them for ages 8+. They are the best games I have ever found, bought, and played, and I look forward eagerly to their next game. (Fingers crossed its another superhero game!) 😀
