Coffee Beans

Interactive Entertainment. It received an ESRB rating of "Everyone 10+" with "Cartoon Violence" listed as content for gamers and parents to be aware of.

How many hours have U.S. Wii owners reported running around LEGO Gotham with the Dark Knight in LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes since the game released? Brew yourself some coffee, and let's take a look!

The Brew
LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes has approximately 3,598 U.S. Wii owners that have reported data through the Nintendo Channel, with 34 days possibly reported as of this report. The game's average play-time per day/session reported on its debut is 3 Hours 14 Minutes.

What about critic and customer reviews for the Wii version? The game has a "professional" critic review score average of 81.50%, based on 2 reviews on, and it has a customer review score average of 85.83% based on 24 reviews from

Caffeinated Thoughts
I haven't played either of the LEGO Batman games, but with Bean 1 just getting a Hot Wheels Batmobile car and being able to hum the original Batman television show tune the games will probably end up on our list at some point.

If you have not seen any footage of LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes, you can watch one trailer below while sipping on some coffee:

I always find it interesting to see how fast games debut, and seeing this game debut with just 34 days possibly reported and already having an average just over 19 hours "Per person" is really good compared to most other Wii games. I don't know how many hours LEGO Batman 2 is supposed to take to complete, but the first LEGO Batman Wii game has an average play-time of just over 36 hours, so I would imagine most owners will get a solid number of hours out of LEGO Batman 2 just based on these early hours reported and averaged.

Have any of you been playing LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes since it released last month? If so, which version have you been playing? More importantly, have you been enjoying your time with the game?

If you have played and beaten the original LEGO Batman and now LEGO Batman 2, do you find LEGO Batman 2 to have any improvements over the original game?

If you are interested in LEGO Batman 2, you can see different versions of the game linked on below:


  1. This is one of the few LEGO games we haven't played yet, unfortunately. I'm sure we'll eventually pick it up.

    Also, I felt compelled to do a word search on 'Ghotham' :)

    Haha! I'm actually debating on using the "Skim at Your Own Risk" or "SAYOR" as a way to give a heads up in certain posts, but not settled that I want to give the notice and take away the fun.

    Have you seen the new movie yet? I've heard positive feedback from friends on it, thinking it was well done.

  3. ROFL - don't give heads-up. Mind you, I usually read the blog at like 8am sans coffee, so I won't likely notice any intentional mistakes as I stare at the screen in blurry-eyed wonder, but it's definitely more fun that way.

    I have not yet. My wife wants to go see it with me, and she's been out of town a lot lately. She'll be out of town Thurs/Friday too, so we are talking about going maybe this weekend.

    Most of my co-workers have seen it now, and the general consensus is it is really good, but not as good as the 2nd movie, and has a lot more tie-in to the original Batman Begins.

  4. The Dark Knight Rises is THE BEST. Yes I did just come here to say that.

  5. Thanks for the feedback, and I'm glad you enjoyed the movie. We still haven't seen it yet, and now it will probably just end up being a DVD buy when it releases because of our crazy schedule about to change some more.

  6. Ah, I see. It's too bad that you won't be able to see in IMAX, since over an hour of footage was shot with IMAX cameras and looks spectacular on the big screen. The theater I went to also had a great form of surround sounds that helped immerse you more in the film. Then again, the DVD version will have subtitles (which is good because some of the dialogue is hard to understand) and any way you see it you'll love it.


Keep the comments clean. Rated "E" for Everyone. :)
