    The LEGO Movie Videogame was one of the few LEGO games that instantly made me want to play more upon finishing the story mode.

    TT Games sets a double-punch with this unique movie-videogame based upon the LEGO World. Fun, engaging and very detailed action adventure masterpiece.

    It might be not the best LEGO so far, but it does offer what you expect from the series. If you're a fan of it, you won't be disappointed.

    Visually, The Lego Movie Video Game on PS4 looks about the same as Lego Marvel Superheroes did on the Wii U, which is a shame since the movie added scratches to textures and variable stop-motion framerate and lighting effects that could have been exploited with the next-gen hardware.

    There hasn't been a lot of tweaks to the overall LEGO game formula, but The LEGO Movie Videogame manages to feel fresh and exciting to play. Levels are shorter, there are less collectibles, and the experience feels much more focused than in previous games. It is a great argument for the less is more approach to game design.

    A number of the scenes lack any real zest. [May 2014, p.78]

    There's nothing wrong with The Lego Movie Videogame, but it just doesn't have the same appeal as other entries in the series.

    Fantastic entry in the lego series, more focused on action and varied levels.

    After 40 hours spent in Lego Marvel, i was happy to see that this new lego title takes another route focusing shorter more action packed levels !
    Still the classic lego puzzles and collectables, but much less tedious collecting 100% of the stuff.

    As usual , legendary local coop. a game for everyone.

    This game is fabulous , LEGO games have always been fun but many of them lacked the originality that few games in the series had . The storyThis game is fabulous , LEGO games have always been fun but many of them lacked the originality that few games in the series had . The story is quite simple you are Emmet who is a construction worker and work to recover the ' Kragle ' from Lord Businessman .. The characters are funny and have goofy names as well there a lot of characters to choose from and unlocking them is addicting ... You will be putting a lot of hours in getting the trophies and all collectibles which is fun and challenging at times , Remote play works exceptionally well . Though there is a minor complaint that open world could be expanded a bit , Game play is classic LEGO style and each charterer has some special ability .. All in all everyone would love the game especially the ones who have watched the movie ! 9/10 ! Expand

    i love Lego videogames, and I loved the Lego movie, so when I heard that the Lego movie was going to get a videogame, I thought that it wouldi love Lego videogames, and I loved the Lego movie, so when I heard that the Lego movie was going to get a videogame, I thought that it would be like bread and butter. The result though, was a half-assed game that is practically begging for the player to complete it.

    The game follows the same plot as the movie: emmet, a normal man in the city, is chosen to fulfill a prophecy and save the world from lord business, teaming up with characters like gandalf, batman, superman, Shaquille o'neil, and Milhouse. This concept worked amazingly in the actual film, and for the most part, does here too. The cutscenes are actually clips from the film, but heavily edited, with a majority of the funny parts cut out. The levels are extremely formulaic, and a lot are boring. instead of action, we are solving puzzles that are so easy, even chimpanzees could solve them.

    If you've ever played a recent Lego game, you know that the open world and levels are filled with many collectibles and characters to find. But nope, not in Lego movie. We have 5 minikits per level. We have 70 gold bricks to find. SEVENTY!!!!! Compare that weak number to the outstanding 250 that Lego marvel super heroes had. And the characters, they aren't even unlocked by finding tokens, or something, instead you just have the option to buy them after the game tells you. By the time the story is finished, you can buy all the characters. Also, the open world is so small I don't even understand why it's there.

    The graphics leave a lot to be desired. They don't look as good as most other Lego games, and this is next generation! Lego hobbit looks better, and they both came out the same year. In the actual game, the characters aren't voiced by the actual actors, yet people doing impressions. To their credit though, their impressions of people like Chris Pratt, will ferrel, and Morgan freeman aren't that bad. Finally, the characters aren't that interesting. Their powers are so bland, and their aren't that many characters. A lot of them are just wastes of space. (There's like, 15 versions of emmet.)

    If other Movie based Lego games worked so well, why not this one? 4/10
