    Although it’s more an action-adventure multiplayer game than a proper MMORPG, LEGO Minifigures Online doesn’t fail to deliver a fun (a lot of them actually) world in which you play with your minifigures. Just keep in mind that it’s a free to play game with children as the main target.

    An MMO for kids that doesn’t patronise. Accessible, sometimes repetitive, but with enough adventure to hold interest.

    In terms of accessing content (especially the chance to collect all the minifigures) the change from free-to-play to pay-to-play is a welcome step. But it opens the door to a whole other world of problems: Why not change the game to offline with optional online connectivity? And also with the redundant fighting system and the mission grind Minifigures has to compete with a wide variety of offline Lego games, which are almost always the better choice.

    I really enjoy Lego games by Traveller’s Tales with their charm, humor and pop-cultural references. Minifigures Online however was created by Funcom and you can feel that the Norwegians just don’t understand why TT’s games appeal both to young and older gamers. What’s more, LMO is boring, rather ugly, full of bugs and dubious design choices. [09/2015, p.55]

    Obviously I’m not the target audience, and sure there might be some kids that get a kick out of collecting figurines that resemble wizards and hot dog men, but I like to think the developer should have given a bit more credit to the target audience. The other LEGO games all manage to be child-friendly without being insulting to everyone else in the process.

I'm British, and as such LEGO was a huge part of my childhood, it's huge here. (Our LEGO land is bigger than any other, even bigger than America's, you can look it up if you want!) Also, we know to call them LEGO bricks, not legos, which the execs at LEGO apparently hate because Americans have been calling all sorts of off-brand stuff 'legos.'

    I hear they do that all the time, though. Like referring to all smartphones as iPhones, tissues as kleenex, et cetera. But I digress!

    The point is is that LEGO is probably bigger in the UK than anywhere else, it was a huge part of my childhood, and even as a grown man I still screw around with LEGO sets. It is forever a guilty pleasure. I even have some of the Chima ones (better than that Ninjago rot). And my love of LEGO extends to the TT Games LEGO games, and this.

    I don't think I've ever really played a bad LEGO game, and this is no exception as it's really quite good. It's not a huge, extroverted raid game. No, it's not about that. It's more of a co-op experience which means it'll work for your introverted kids as much as your extroverted one. And I speak from experience as I'm pretty much a big introverted kid myself.

    You'd be hard pressed to not have fun with this, and probably more than a little soulless.

    Game is very fun to play for the kids, and it is very fun to play together with friends.

A tad easy, but difficulty is set this way so kids will be able to play it without too much hassle. Developers might have to adjust difficulty on the game later on. Game can be played on iOS, some Android devices, PC, MAC and Linux – and you can play with others no matter what unit you are on. There’s no mini transactions in-game, everything is unlockable, which makes it a dream for parents. Minifigures are really well made and game is fully voiced, which makes you easily connect to the cute minifigures. Of course, when the monsters in series 14 are released, they might not be so cute  Codes inside the minifigure packs will unlock a minifigure. Controls are very decent, also on the iOS version of the game. Game adapts to whatever device you are on, so basically you can play in the same world on the PC and the iOS. I would say it’s a Diablo for kids, which can also be fun for grownups. Full Review »
