Frequently Asked Questions
Question: How do you continue the game if you (saved and) quit in the middle of a level? It doesn’t show up in the level selector and replaying the previous level doesn’t help.
Answer 1: If you have a save and exit problem, follow the translucent blue ghost studs around gotham till it flips to a mini-movie. – Thanks to Austin for the tip.
Answer 2: Here’s a handy tip for continuing Story Mode again:
Go back to Arkham Asylum and re-enter the level from there. Go in the front door which brings you out the back and Commissioner Gordon is there to talk to and in turn restart the level.
Here’s how to get to Arkham Asylum: Go to the amusement park and grab a vehicle… take the first path to the right and follow it around to the Asylum. At the Asylum, get out of the vehicle and there will be other characters there, and then the game will give you the option to press the B / Action button and launches you right back into the story. Note that this will start the whole level all over again. – Thanks to Allison & Lloydy for the tip.
Question: How do you find the next level in Story Mode? In some cases it isn’t obvious where to enter the next level from the hub.
Answer 1: You can find the next level by chasing the flashing bat signal on your compass / map. – Thanks to Joel for the tip.
Answer 2: Every level in our Lego Batman 2 walkthrough will soon have a video guide with voice-over commentary by Doug. He will start each video by showing you exactly how to enter and start playing the level you may be having a difficult time finding.
Question: How to get into free play mode? I’ve completed the story but now I cannot figure out how to get back into the levels.
Answer: You access them from the bat computer in the Batcave. – Thanks to Darthy for the hint.
Question: After completing the Story Mode, is there a way to go back through the game as the villains like in the first Lego Batman game?
Answer: Unless you are doing Free Play Mode and just picking villains as your characters – No there isn’t. – Thanks for the tip George.
Question: How do you get out of the Batcave?
Answer: On the platform splitting off three different ways. Go on the middle path and then pass the waterfall (in front of the computer). What happens is a big metal bat will split open the waterfall, revealing a path outside. And if that doesn’t work, you just need to get into a vehicle and the gate beyond the waterfall will open up. – Thanks for the tip Joe.
Question: How do you save your progress after beating the Story Mode? When you quit the game will say all progress will be lost.
Answer: You can always go to the Batcave computer to save your progress.
Saving Glitch Question: Why isn’t save and exit working in free play mode? If I found everything I never had to finish a level in other Lego games. I am losing the studs, minikits and CIP found in Free Play when I exit a level after a checkpoint without finishing the level completely. (happened on Xbox 360 version)
Answer: If you find the minikit and Saved and Exited a Level in Free Play at the checkpoint where they were climbing out. Then the bat computer still shows (for example) 9/10 minikits. When you go back into the Level, which started at the checkpoint, it shows 10/10 minikits found, so you naturally finish the full Level but the bat computer will still show only 9/10 minikits found.
To solve this glicht, you have to play through the entire level from the start to get all collectibles to save. In the example’s case, luckily restarting at the beginning of the level does make the last minikit available.
Andrea contacted the game’s publisher Warner Bros. and their comment was “There is no plan to fix the problem.” So restarting the entire level is the only solution to save your progress. – Thanks for the tip AndreaP.
Freezing Glitch Question: What to do when the game locks up on you? I just went past the second checkpoint of the long Level 9: Research and Development. As I walked through the door Superman opened, the game screen froze. (happened on Xbox 360 version)
Answer: Restart your game system after it freezes and you’ll be able to start the Level over. You can’t continue from the last save point, but that’s a small price to pay, since luckily the restart can be done without having to restart the entire game from Level 1. – Thanks for the tip AndreaP.

LEGO games are cute, funny and easy to jump into, but they've also been around since 2005. Whenever someone wandered by my desk and spied me playing LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes, he or she would undoubtedly say "Yup, it's another LEGO game" before wandering off. Trouble is, LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes isn't just another LEGO game. It does away with hard-to-judge platforming, its puzzles make sense, and it adds a couple of big things that are sure to become staples for the LEGO franchise moving forward.
The changes come with growing pains, but there's no denying that LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes is a great video game.
Like the previous game, LEGO Batman 2 spins an original yarn, but this time it's engaging and really interesting. Lex Luthor is running for president, teaming with the Joker and using kryptonite to stuff the ballot box. With foulness afoot, Batman, Robin, Superman and eventually the entire Justice League step in to stop the plot.
This plays out via traditional LEGO game controls. You jump, punch and switch between characters with button presses and keystrokes. A local friend can drop in and out for co-op in a jiff. The game's as simple to understand as ever, but adds new suits for Batman and Robin along with powers for specific characters. Black Canary has her sonic blast, Cyborg is magnetized, and Wonder Woman can lasso hard to reach handles.
That's what LEGO games are all about -- exploring and collecting -- and LEGO Batman does that better than any iteration that's come before.
It's a focused story that's entertaining from start to finish, and part of that is thanks to voice acting. For the first time in LEGO history, LEGO Batman 2 packs a full voice cast to tell its tale. While the silent LEGO games have always been funny, LEGO Batman 2 is able to move beyond shrugs and grins. Robin fanboying out over Superman, Vicki Vale's newscasts, and Lex trying to convince Joker that killing Batman is a good idea -- these are brilliant moments we would've lost without the excellent actors. Among these actors is Superman: The Animated Series' Clancy Brown reprising his role as Lex Luthor. Fresh voices are used for most of the other characters, but the new takes are welcome.
Of course, the story is just a tiny sliver of any LEGO game. You'll run through the 15-chapter story of LEGO Batman 2 in about nine hours (probably a lot less if you don't methodically smash everything like I did and get distracted by side stuff), but then you'll replay levels for more studs (in-game currency) and to find collectables such as mini-kit parts.
That's what LEGO games are all about -- exploring and collecting -- and LEGO Batman does that better than any iteration that's come before. See, LEGO Batman 2 has another first for the series: an open world. While LEGO games always have a HUB world, they're usually a bit limited. LEGO Batman 2 gives you all of Gotham City to explore. Arkham Asylum, Ace Chemicals, GCPD -- it's an entire town and it's packed with stuff to collect, save and explore.
- Hit the gas, Dark Knight.
Red bricks are tucked around corners and unlock cheats, new characters appear on rooftops, and bosses are around to fight and add to your playable roster. There are vehicles to purchase and then drive, people to save and so many studs to collect. Still, it's the Gold Bricks that stand out.
There are 250 Golden Bricks. While you'll get them for completing objectives in story missions, the majority are hidden around Gotham and only accessible via certain characters. Plenty of times I'd be flying around as Superman (the John Williams theme plays any time Kal-El is airborne), spot a Gold Brick, and have to work my way from the goal to the beginning of the challenge so that Robin in his acrobat suit or Batman in his electricity suit could go through the Mousetrap-like obstacle course to unlock the brick the appropriate way. The Gold Bricks are these little challenges inside the greater world that keep you on your toes and have you trying out the more than 50-character roster that includes the Flash, Hush, Martian Manhunter and more.
Of course, bringing in all of this new stuff creates a few new – albeit minor -- problems. While the map will show you where bosses and unlockables are, you can't zoom in to really orient where you should be looking so there's a lot of moving a few feet, pausing and reevaluating.
Again, developer Traveller's Tales has nailed the gameplay issues that have plagued the franchise for years, but now, the designers have to take some notes on how modern open worlds work. (Although Red Bricks do eventually label unlockables on the screen.)
