Visually speaking, LEGO Batman 2 looks as good as its predecessor. Both characters and vehicles look like their toy counterparts, while Gotham City itself feels appropriate in both scale and dark grandeur. Some of the gameís more impressive sights happen when you take one of your characters up to the rooftops of some of Gothamís tallest towers and just look down upon the open-world from on high. Couple that with the constant darkness, even in daytime, and ever-present rain and the feel is perfect.
LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes is the first TT Games LEGO title to feature voice-acting. Before this game, all of the charactersí communication was done via pantomime, but with the exception of the last LEGO Batman title, the stories were all backed by movies. As a result, you knew what was going on. Unfortunately, the story for the first LEGO Batman wasnít the easiest to follow without the external reference that the other games have had. Thatís why DC Super Heroes goes all out with actors portraying each hero, villain, and random character on the street, and quite frankly, it works really well. I especially like Supermanís over-the-top do-gooder voice that is too proper to be real. Coupled with Batmanís rough voice (though itís no Christian Bale), and Robinís younger voice, the vocals alone gives Batman 2 high marks in the audio department.
