After my experiences with both LEGO Star Wars III and LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean, you’d think that by now I’d know that the handheld versions of LEGO games differ from the console versions. When I picked up the LEGO Batman 2 strategy guide, I flipped through it to make sure this was no different.
I should have looked more closely.
I was looking for tab markers on the edges, where the table of contents are listed, to designate a separate section for handheld games. When I didn’t see one, I assumed this meant all versions were covered, so I didn’t bother picking up a PS3 copy of the game. If only I had looked at the front of the guide, in the bottom left corner, where it distinctly says that the guide covers PC, Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii versions. In the middle of the guide there is a leaflet with a code to download an e-guide for the handheld games from Prima‘s website.
See what happens when you don’t read? On the bonus side, however, this means I have an opportunity to get two separate Platinum trophies…
