(continued from previous page) ...make playing the game a much more enjoyable family experience. However, conspicuous by its absence here is an online co-op mode, which is somewhat disappointing considering its inclusion in past instalments in the franchise.

One particular aspect that will send the older crowd into a sense of nostalgia is the soundtrack. The melody for the game is Danny Elfman's score from the 1989 Batman film. While, some may have hoped for a larger variety of music, the score as it is works just fine, although a hint of repetition does creep in from time to time.

Overall LEGO Batman: The Videogame offers up more of the same, which isn’t always a bad thing. However, after five instalments, you’d expect Traveller’s Tales to tighten up a few of the more prominent quirks. Nonetheless, problems aside, it’s still the same family fun as you’d come to expect which makes it a must own title for family entertainment or Batman fans in general.
