LEGO DC Super Villains is a unique twist on the aging LEGO game premise that shifts the perspective and puts you in the shoes of The Joker, Lex Luthor, and other villains.
Packed with jokes and DC fan service but the Lego formula is long overdue a complete revamp, because it's starting to ruin concepts like this that are otherwise ripe with potential.
The zany story, huge roster of great characters, and quality-of-life updates make this one of the best entries in the entire Lego library
Despite an impressive roster and some top-notch actors to voice them, Lego DC Super-Villains is a tedious game that fails to capitalize on its best qualities.
Lego DC Super-Villains does little with the DC canon, its story never reaching beyond, "these baddies aren't so bad after all."
It's hard to complain about the amount of game here, and if you're a DC Comics fan you'll have a lot of fun, even if you had that same fun before.
Having been disappointed by Lego The Incredibles, confused by Lego Ninjago The Movie's linear approach, and slightly underwhelmed by the obscure roster of Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2, I am happy to report that Lego DC Super-Villains is a real return to form for Traveller's Tales. It eclipses Lego Batman 2 to become my joint favourite alongside the first Lego Marvel Super Heroes; this is an essential play for any fan of comics, Lego games, or fun in general! Particularly when played in local co-op, there is so much to do and explore here without even considering the emergent and environmental fun to be had. Being bad never felt so good.
With great sense of humor, an incredible amount of content and tons of fun, LEGO DC Super-Villains it's the kind of game that's easy to recommend to anyone, not just fans os super villains (and heroes).

The big picture looks great from a distance, but those flaws become very apparent when you look closer. Still, if you're looking for something easy to pick up, play and have a good time with, you could do a lot worse than Lego DC Super-Villains.
LEGO DC Supervillains remains faithful to its roots despite some new additions that don't get to change its mechanics. A game that will make you uncover every character giving you hours of fun in the way to it.

A solid LEGO title, perfect for DC comics and Lego videogames fans.

The LEGO formula may be growing tired at this point, but LEGO DC Super-Villains is still one of the best games TT Games has produced and is an excellent use of the DC licence.
Honestly, I find writing about these games increasingly exhausting, and playing them just as fun as ever.
LEGO DC Super-Villains does next to nothing to distinguish itself from past LEGO games, even carrying over some of the franchise's usual glitches and technical issues.
LEGO DC Super-Villains is a charmingly funny game that combines the joy of LEGO with the creative coolness of the DC roster. The game isn't hard by any means, but it's a great casual romp through an interesting story. The massive roster is impressive and the detail put into each character makes each one of them worth putting time into.
Although developers tried to attract the Hollywood stars, fill the world with puzzles, side quests and were not afraid to try the supervillains theme, this project is not much different from previous games in the plastic universe. There is a feeling that you are playing the same game again and again.

While the formula has not changed much in these games, they are still fun if you enjoy the subject matter. Being a massive DC fan it is cool to see some weird and obscure villains in this ridiculous roster. LEGO DC Super Villains might feel like a game built on a template, but that doesn’t make it not fun. If you are not tired of the formula and love playing the bad guy, this title might be for you.

LEGO DC Super-Villains is perhaps the best LEGO game to date.
Easily the best Lego game I've played. A fantastic cast of characters made better by incredible voice work, good comic book story, a great character creator, and improvements to core mechanics make Lego DC Super-Villains pure entertainment.
