They've been a great franchise, and they deserve the sales. Great job.

I can't resist these LEGO games, especially playing co-op, and my kids loved them.  They're just good clean fun.

after swearing i would never buy a lego game, i did. i just beat this on my vita and it is hilarious. i love the humor in it, and lego batman 2 actually has tons of references to arkham asylum! not to mention the justice league in it is a bonus. definitely pick it up folks. it is well worth the price of admission.

Seems to be pretty big numbers for "used games" to be so called destroying the industry.

Not the game we need, but the game we deserve.

Wicked game that can easily be recommended to any DC fan.  Especially after you unlock the Justice League for open-world play.

Congrats to the devs. On another note, I love my Wii U but seriously.... I would rather them not release the game as I played it on my Xbox 360. I would much rather them focus their time on a new game to be enjoyed for the Wii U.

@-Jonce- Soaring into the sky to the original theme feels incredible, best Superman game ever.
