The LEGO games have always been popular with fans of all ages and if you are a fan of certain franchise, there is a good chance that there is a LEGO video game based on it! Games filled with references, jokes, Easter Eggs and escapism.
I received an early copy of the game last week that is based on the latest movie and I couldn’t stop playing it. It’s a combination of Minecraft, Mad Max and a family friendly version of Grand Theft Auto! There is so much free roaming in the game that you can easily get distracted as you travel around vast and varied locations from the movie. I spent most of my time exploring “Bricksburg” and hunting for Superman!
Just like previous LEGO titles you can play as many different characters (there are 100 in this one) once you unlock them and the completionist in me wants to 100% complete this game so this may be my last article for a while…
The stars from the movie (Chris Pratt and Elizabeth Banks) feature a lot in the game and the musical score is just as entertaining as their dialogue. Combine that with the playful colours and you have a gaming experience that your eyes and ears will thank you for. I am still humming and singing the songs…
Now, the gameplay is never truly difficult in these games but that doesn’t mean that the content gets dull and repetitive. Anything but! The story missions and side missions were imaginative and fun and after playing for a good few hours I am only at 7% completion! I got stuck on a few missions but the in-game tutorials got me out a jam.
TT Games and WB Games have made a great experience that is fun for the whole family. Combining creativity and adventure, its imaginative story allows the players (it’s multiplayer!) to get lost in a safe world where they can build whatever they can imagine. Just like if you had a pile of actual LEGO bricks in front of you, this game lets you do whatever your imagination can think up!
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have some people to save and some relics to find!
The LEGO Movie Videogame is out on March the 1st and is available to play on X-BOX One, PS4, PC and Nintendo Switch.
