I played all the previous Lego games (bar Harry Potter) with my 12yo daughter. We've been playing them since the first Lego Star Wars came out on the 360 (about 3 years ago). They've always been intuitive and very well put together, a good family game.
We sat down to this, really looking forward to it. Both of us actually find it quite confusing at times, and we're very well-versed in the lego games having completed everything in SW, Indiana Jones etc.
She's given up on it totally after the first couple of levels (those major battle scenes are just a confusing mess) claiming she has no idea what's going on, where she is, what she's supposed to be doing or what's happening. And as a seasoned gamer (but one who sadly paid for it), I'm not that far behind her.
A shame. Something just isn't right here, it doesn't play as well as the others do. So, back to finishing off Lego Batman it is then !
6/10 from me.
