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.

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.

Although the formula for LEGO games has remained mostly unchanged over the past six years, LEGO DC Super Villains is still an enjoyable experience, provided that you aren't suffering from LEGO fatigue.

LEGO DC Super-Villains Review "Buy, Wait for Sale, Rent, Never Touch?" video thumbnail
Oct 17, 2018

With its gleefully mischievous cast and a few new mechanical tricks, Lego DC Super-Villains is a refreshing twist on the trusted Lego game formula. It's a shame that long-running glitches that have plagued the series for years still rear their ugly head, but subtle improvements across the board make them tolerable, in large part because there's so much else to like. A love letter to fans of the comics and the earlier Lego DC games alike, this makes it clear it's good to be bad.

If you've been a fan of the LEGO DC titles in the past, then chances are you've already bought the game and aren't reading this at all. If you've never gotten into the LEGO genre before, then LEGO DC Super-Villains isn't a bad dropping-in point. The collectibles are easier to amass, the puzzles have some challenge, and the character creation is enjoyable. If nothing else, you get to hear Mark Hamill's sillier version of the Joker. That alone makes the price of admission worth it.

As you'd expect, LEGO DC Super-Villains doesn't make many attempts to change up the formula that's served it so well for so long, but with a vast library of well-applied and famous baddies to draw from it offers a far more engaging and memorable story than the stretched-too-thin LEGO The Incredibles. However, with a brilliant cast on hand (can anyone really compare to Hamill's Joker?), a vast sandbox hub and all the customisation options you could want in Danish brick form, this familiar playground still has bags of charm.

A Lego game with an original story featuring a who's who of DC villains (and a few heroes for good measure), a universe of great locations, and plenty of bricky humor. A few game killing bugs do hinder the overall experience (at least on Switch), but otherwise Lego DC Super-Villains is a blast to play, either alone or with another aspiring no-goodnick.

I'm ultimately sad to see that I have grown out of a franchise I once loved, with underlying problems that I may have not noticed as a child building on top of one another to make LEGO DC Super-Villains much less enjoyable than I thought it would be. I may still return to LEGO DC Super-Villains in the future if I'm in the mood for some DCAU voice acting or want to play the TV show and movie themed DLC, but at this point I can tell that I'm done with the LEGO franchise as a whole, which is a shame.

LEGO DC Super-Villains is a much welcome return of the series to a Nintendo console. If the main traits of the Lego games remain intact, it's also worthy of praise to see that the game brings along some necessary improvements when it comes to the audiovisual component and which suit perfectly on the game's well written and humorous plot, as well as on its variety of available characters.

LEGO DC Super Villains is fun, but doesn't reinvent the brick. While playing on the strengths of titles that came before, Villains leans hard into the humorous and quirky narrative one expects from a LEGO title.

Lego DC Super-Villains oozes with the trademark charm and zaniness of past games in the franchise with a fresh twist that lets you indulge your inner Legion of Doom. The gameplay still largely hews to the traditional Lego gaming formula, which can feel repetitive for folks who have grown tired of the franchise's mechanics. A delightfully villainous cast, however, adds some much-needed freshness to a series that has started to feel a bit stale outside of Lego City Undercover.

Lego DC Super-Villains is a light-hearted and surprisingly lengthy romp for the whole family. Gameplay doesn't break from the established Lego formula, and the controls can actually be frustrating at times. You'll soldier on, though, thanks to an entertaining story and lovingly-recreated DC universe – especially if you're a comics fan.

If you are a LEGO/DC fan, this game is a no brainer. A game that succeed on being fun, without unnecesary distractions.

Lego DC Supervillains is an enjoyable game that has everything from the past Lego games. Whether it's mechanics, a lot of characters, or free roam. That means you have to take the good with the bad aspects. The story is a fresh new take on DC comics with injecting the idea of your character being the center of the universe. This concept makes more a more inviting experience whether its new or old Lego game fans. In the end, it is a Lego game. There hasn't been a bad one yet. So, go enjoy Supervillains because it is one of Traveller's Tales best.

As a whole, Lego DC Super-Villains is a game of two halves when it comes to its overall quality. One half of the game is great thanks to the humorous story and likable characters. However, the second half of the game is flawed thanks to horrible level design and repetitive gameplay. If you are wanting to play this, it's best to wait until this game goes on sale before you buy it.

A neat continuation of the LEGO DC series, Super-Villains offers a neat twist in casting your custom character and a range of iconic faces from the comic books as the protagonists in a raucously fun story. Yes, it's the same old LEGO game that you'll have played several times before, but damn it, it's still good. And indeed, good to be bad.

LEGO DC Super-Villains is definitely one of the best in the series, with many improvements that not only build on the strengths of the previous titles but also fixes some of the issues they faced. The massive change to player-created characters and the star-studded voice cast makes the game significantly more enjoyable and offers much more replayability than previous titles. LEGO DC Super-Villains may very well end up becoming the benchmark for future games in the franchise.

LEGO DC Super-Villains doesn't change the core LEGO game formula much, but does its best to work within that formula and deliver a fresh experience through its storyline.

While I doubt it will convince those bored of LEGO games otherwise, LEGO DC Super-Villains is a fun entry into the series that embraces its evil side for something a little more interesting than normal.
