I saw this game being played at GDC and it was completely charming. I love that you can play through the campaign as the cute little villains.
Quickly, to the BatTrailers!

Frankly, we know what we’re in for with Lego Indiana Jones – Lucasarts property, swinging with the whip, digging with the spade, shooting with the gun, and no damned Nazis. It’s a natural sequel to Lego Star Wars. Lego Batman, though – there’s a lot more to play with there. Bats’ supervillains offer a little more breadth than Star Wars’ guns’n'Force line-up, plus, not being based directly on a film series, it’s free to tell its own stories in its own gloriously unhinged environments.

And, of course, there probably isn’t all that much to give away anyway. We can guess pretty much what to expect from this – punch, build, jump, grapple-hook, giggle. Much as I’m tickled by the concept, I think I need to see something that proves this is a little more than Lego Star Wars but with frowning before I get excited – especially with the similarly punch’n'grappley Lego Indiana Jones also on the toy-to-game horizon.
