This new expansion in this popular franchise ramps up the comedy and brings new tweaks to a (now) well-known formula. For its latest expansion, the game takes a trip to Gotham City and let fans play around with the Caped Crusader and all his wonderful toys. As with previous Story Packs, there are a couple of additions this time around, including new character abilities such as Detective Mode, High Security Access, and Vent Access, all of which are exclusive to characters from The Lego Batman Movie. While these are pretty much only new ways to access different areas in the game, they do make the new characters feel unique and necessary, which is a good thing because they are hilariously funny in the game. It's hard to keep a straight face around Robin in particular, with his doe-eyed excitement over the smallest thing and his eagerness to please Batman. That's the thing about this expansion: While Lego Dimensions has never been a game that takes itself too seriously, Lego Dimensions: The Lego Batman Movie Story Pack (much like the movie) cranks the comedy up to eleven.

One of the first things that stands out about this pack, even before you play the game, is its lack of an actual Batman figure to use for the game, despite both Robin and Batgirl mini-figures being included. This is because players are meant to use the Batman figure that comes with the game's Starter Pack. It's a minor thing but worth mentioning since technically they are two different characters with different abilities. Players can even unlock a special red-brick "Extra" that allows players to use The Lego Batman Movie version of the character in other worlds throughout Lego Dimensions. While The Lego Batman Story Pack doesn't exactly reinvent the wheel when it comes to the tried-and-true Lego game formula, as a stand-alone experience it's surprisingly meaty and feels like a complete gam. The stages are lengthy with a lot of hidden goodies to seek out with some of the other Lego Dimensions characters, and even after you beat the story, there are still the Adventure World and Battle Arena to explore.
