    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.

    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.

Firstly, this is easily the best LEGO game I've ever played just beatingThis game has surprised me so much I felt I had to leave a review. Firstly, this is easily the best LEGO game I've ever played just beating LEGO City: Undercover by a small margin and secondly this may just be the best movie tie-in game ever too! It's not just a good LEGO game, it's not just a good movie tie-in game...it's a good game, PERIOD. I've never been a fan of the LEGO games, I've always found them boring, but with this game it kept me entertained from beginning to end. Now, I hear the criticism about it being essentially the same as all the other LEGO titles and not bringing anything new to the table, this may be true but it doesn't apply to me as, like I've said, I've never played through any other LEGO games (accept LEGO City) so, bare that in mind with my review, it's a 9 out of 10 for me because I've not been playing LEGO games for all these years, so it's pretty much all new.

    I have not enjoyed a Lego game this much since Lego City Undercover, the combination of next gen graphics, a well woven story, the integrationI have not enjoyed a Lego game this much since Lego City Undercover, the combination of next gen graphics, a well woven story, the integration of the lego build system all combine to make this one of my favourite Lego games so far.

    Players assume the character of Emmett, the everyday construction worker who is whisked away by Wyldstyle to help save the Lego universe from the evil Lord Business. Along the way you collect characters from the movie like Batman, Unikitty and Vitruvius to help complete the levels. Like every other Lego game, the formula is pretty much the same. The great thing about the individual levels in this game is that unlike previous instalments, they are not long and drawn out. They seem to have finally found a balance with the length of the levels and just how much time players can invest in this unfamiliar territory.

    A stronger emphasis on the puzzles has been part on this game. Players will spend the majority of the levels finding instruction guides to build Lego objects to get past the block in the level. It’s not just enough to have the instructions, you also need a master builder to carry them out for you. This adds in to the platforming, open world gameplay that provides the most versatile and interesting Lego gameplay to date.

    In terms of length, it may feel a little short compared to previous Lego games, it takes about 20 hours to get 100%, when you compare this to something gargantuan like Lego Marvel or Batman 2, but this is still a decent amount of gameplay to keep it moving and not feeling like it overstays its welcome. The four realms you can move between are set in an open world style but are not littered with too many things to find so younger players can still finish it without too much difficulty.

    Graphically this is definitely the best that Traveller’s Tales have put out. I reviewed this on the PS4 and everything about it was exactly the next gen experience I wanted from a Lego game. The colours shine out in levels in the Rainbow Cloud with Unikitty using every colour of the rainbow to decorate, cut scenes directly from the movie mix in with the graphical interface of the game, and it was a struggle to spot a massive difference.

    This is by far one of the best movie tie in games I have ever played and will continue to come back to revisit. No DLC has been announced for the game apart from maybe a few more characters if it does well (this is just speculation!) The characters are just as loveable as they are in the movie and the addition of the Lego construction puzzles keep this Lego game from being just a carbon copy of the previous ones. Kids and adults will love playing this game and it really keeps the fun spirit of the movie all throughout the game. Superior next gen graphics and highly detailed worlds bring the Lego movie to life on the console.

    This is one of the best tie in games for a movie that I have played in a long time. It's good enough that it would easily stand on it's ownThis is one of the best tie in games for a movie that I have played in a long time. It's good enough that it would easily stand on it's own without the movie based on how well the levels fill in the gaps along the story line.

    The levels are fun and brimming with hidden areas, characters and collectibles. Having the actual voice actors really pulls the game together and gives it the charm that the movie brings tot the table.

    The music is amazing and really gets you into the action and story.

    The only thing about this game that was a disappointment was the lack of online co op. These games are meant to be played with another person, and as much fun as it is playing with someone next to me - there are others whom I would love to play this with that do not live in the same province as me.

    With that aside - this game is a solid platforming collecting haven of fun. Everything is indeed, awesome.
