If you've played one of the previous two LEGO Batman games, or really any of developer Traveller's Tales LEGO games, there's a certain degree of knowing what you're getting into with LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham. Though it certainly has a new coat of paint on it, so to speak, many of the mechanics and gameplay objectives are the same as they've always been.
The developers make up for that by giving players more of everything: playable characters, levels, collectibles, power-ups, costumes side quests, Easter eggs and locations. Mix that more-is-more mentality with an enduring charm and sense of humor, and you've got a pretty compelling package, albeit one that tends to bring out some of my worst tendencies as a player.

Among them: A lot of bad guys, including The Joker, The Penguin, Black Mask, Deadshot, and the just-revealed Solomon Grundy. Catwoman's there, too (and also in a new screen shot from the game). See if you can spot any more in the trailer after the cut.
Between Injustice: Gods Among Us and Justice League: Earth's Final Defense, fans have had no shortage of video game brawlers starring Superman of late. With the release of Man of Steel on June 14, though, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Phosphor Games Studio have announced they'll loose a specifically movie-flavored option for fans on iOS and Android, plus Google Play and the Amazon Appstore the same day for roughly $3-5 depending on the device.
