The inclusion of an open world in this ever-growing gaming franchise adds by far another exciting element to the lego gaming community. The addition of the open world adds at least another 5-7 hours of gaming and allows even the least interested lego fans to further involve themselves in the lego universe. The amount of DC characters available for use in the open world certainly satisfies the gamers needs and the inclusion of flying is by far the most exhilarating thing within the game. Two aspects that i thought let the game down were, one, that the story mainly follows just Lex Luthor and the Joker, despite an early (and brief) appearance of such notably important characters as Mr.Freeze & The Penguin, the gamer never really feels that he is saving, as reported by GCN, Gotham City from an outbreak of criminals as most are dealt with within the first hour or so go gameplay. The second frustrating element is again the camera, which hasn't been improved upon in the slightest throughout the lego gaming franchise. I have played Lego Star Wars: TCS, Lego Batman, Lego Harry Potter & now Lego Batman 2: DC Heroes. The camera always appears to be frustrating a d can make the simplest of tasks take unbearably long. Despite these two improvements to be made though, i still see this game as by far the best in the series and the inclusion of the open world dignifies it an 8.5 and can take a slight shine off the fault i came across. One thing i would love to see in the future, despite the already on the horizon Lego Lord of the Rings, is a Lego Marvel, umpteen amounts of colourful characters would be available to play with and the storyline could take so many different directions. This could also carry on the open world situation with which Spiderman could swing around Manhattan in a similar way he will in the release of 'The Amazing Spiderman' on June 28th.
