I haven’t been a big Lego game fan. I always thought they were a bit too childish for my liking. But when I saw the “4th” instalment was a villain based game with actors like Mark Hamill and Michal Ironside. I decided to check out LEGO DC Super-Villains on the Nintendo Switch.
The voice acting for this game is what keeps me coming back. People like Michael Rosenbaum and batman royalty Kevin Conroy are providing voices. Set in an open world experience within the DC universe, the Justice League has disappeared, leaving Earth’s protection to their counterparts, who have proclaimed themselves as the “Justice Syndicate”. It’s up to you and a crazy group of misfits to uncover the intentions of Earth’s new, strange, wannabe superheroes. Joined by renowned DC Super-Villains: The Joker, Harley Quinn, and countless others from the Injustice League, players will set out on an epic adventure.
The game becomes a chance to play as some of the best comic villains out there, each with their own abilities. Characters like Clayface who can imitate characters powers or change into another character to access locked areas and the Joker can turn people into flunkies who then help out. There are around 80 characters you can unlock playing this game.

As well as the gallery of bad guys you can play as you also have your own character. You design and customise your character, right down to the colour of your laser sight. The more you play, the more you unlock.
This is a great port of the game, the graphics look great, the lighting is dynamic and I didn’t notice any speed issues. It works great in handheld and TV mode. There are no shuddering graphic elements when switching between the two
