“I am Lex Luthor, the greatest criminal mastermind of this, or any other Earth!”
LEGO Games Retrospective, looking back over the last decade and a bit of TT Games’ LEGO partnership, from the emergence of LEGO Star Wars through to the powerhouse that has been LEGO Dimensions and BEYOND.
Taking inspiration from a number of the stories in the comic-book world, DC Super-villains tells the tale of a world where even the baddest of the bad must sometimes step up to save the day…if only to protect their own butt.
The arrival of a duplicate justice league from Earth 3, calling themselves the Justice Syndicate, sees Earth 1’s World’s Finest go missing. Taking their place under the guise of a similar superhero team, this super-powered criminal gang are on the hunt for a mother box – the key to unlocking the anti-life equation for their master, Darkseid.
With the population of the world unaware of the Justice Syndicate’s true motives, the fate of the world lies with the only group of people that know the truth, Lex Luthor and the Legion of Doom. Knowing the Justice League are out of the picture, the super-villains must join forces in order to rid the world of the new threat and take the world for their own.
Joining their ranks is a newbie, the Rookie, a mute being able to absorb in powers who may hold the key to “saving the day”…
Overall, LEGO DC Supervillains isn’t THE BEST game TT Games have ever made, but it doesn’t need to be.
Is it perfect? NO. Is it a great LEGO game? YES. Is it a fun DC comics game? VERY MUCH YES.
If you want something that is comic-book entertaining, with a great story, an amazing voice cast, and will give you all of the bells and whistles that made previous games fun to play, then you’re going to love LEGO DC Super-villains.
