  • Summary: In a scenario drawn from the film, The LEGO Movie Videogame puts LEGO kids into the role of Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. Players guide him as he is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared. Expand

    Another smash-and-collect game featuring everyone’s favorite building toy. This time around, it’s based on the new animated movie and offers many of the hilarious characters fresh off the screen. A little bit of fresh gameplay livens up this entry, but a few story and camera problems hamper the experience somewhat. Ultimately, The LEGO Movie Videogame is great fun and perfect for fans of the fantastic plastic.

    TT Fusion followed instructions to create this game’s foundation, but the art on top of it is the work of master builders. The visuals are a surprising hook in this Lego entry.

    The art direction shines, although it could be closer to the source. And even though in local co-op it is as entertaining as any Lego game, the movie conversion can’t hide that mechanically it is merely a risk free collection of everything we got to know over the last few years.

    While not everything is awesome, The Lego Movie Videogame should be just the ticket if you're ready to spend another 10 to 12 hours in the fantastic world of animated plastic blocks.

    It's not quite what we've come to expect from TT Games; you'd be better off going to watch the film four times. [Issue#109, p.81]

    As a huge fan of Lego games, I've been disappointed by The LEGO Movie Videogame. Of course the title aims at seducing young fans of the film, but is it a reason to ruin the content and the direction? Of course we find humor, platforming riddles and stuff to collect which became the renown of previous titles, but the result is not quite as enjoyable. If we limit ourselves to the bad direction, the crappy music, the bugs and lags will still be enough to displease most achievement hunters. But even the content of the game sucks, fewer characters than usual, a light life, easy progression. As it seems it's not that easy to make a good LEGO game from a great LEGO film. Next try in 2017 with LEGO the movie 2!

    Underwhelming is probably the best way to describe The Lego Movie Game; sticking too closely to the movie, lacking in the fun factor, having little character of its own as a result, feeling padded and most certainly rushed to coincide with the movie launch.

    I'd taken a break from Lego Games after the first Batman one and decided to re-discover the series through this installment.

    What a good
    decision that turned out to be, the Lego Series of Video games I think is suffering franchise fatigue and there's nothing in this game that particularly changes the Formula, but because of my break from the Franchise I'm not yet bored of it.

    It's absolutely hilarious and just plain fun and that's what a game should be.

    Yes it's mindless.

    Yes it's somewhat repetitive but I'm having fun and that matters more than all the best graphics and set pieces an FPS can ever offer these days.

    out of the 3 possible lego games on next gen, this is my favourite one by a mile, its a very funny story, it has plenty of achivements and the story is suprisingly interesting. Really really enjoyed it. Expand

    With only just getting into playing the Lego video games and watching the movie , I was keen to play this game, on my NEW xbox one. It closely follows the movie , but if you haven't seen the movie , there are holes in the plot. The level designs are great and there is a great amount of humour , that is one of the main points of the Lego games .The characters move well , but feel a bit chunky , with some glitches here and there. And when you have completed levels and earned free play , some levels in free mode have glitches , were I've had to exit the level as certain items that you need to complete the level , either don't activate or spawn. And through a specific area of the game when you gained an item of a sub mission and getting it back to its area , the game resets it's self. Unlocking characters has been made a lot easier , rather than searching the hubs for the characters you can buy them from the character select screen , which can take away a bit of the challenge.
    The xbox achievements range from completing levels to unlocking characters and extras , which adds to playability of the game .
    It's an ok game , fun and if your a fan of the Lego games and movie , I would recommend it , but I would get it for the LAST generation of consoles

    The game is a cheap rehashing of the film's storyline, complete with redubbed movie scenes with poor sound production and no atmosphere. The game lacks the lineup of character that comes with a licenced tie-in and the few, albeit it rather entertaining, 'main' characters can't make up for the fact that the game doesn't stand up to the same quality as their licenced titles. The game defines movie tie-ins and while entertaining does not live up to expectations. Expand

    The Lego Movie Videogame Is indeed, Horrible. But the great voice acting by the cast of the movie and a whole new story make it playable. But the clunky controls, bad mini games make it a rental. It's slow, repetitive combat sucks and the game is more of a cartoon than a game. For 60 bucks? No man. Expand

    I bought this game because I wanted to play it with my girlfriend. The multiplayer is horrible! The camera is an eyesore--it also constant glitches back and forth between players making it impossible to play at times. The game doesn't have any interesting mechanics...only forces you to switch between characters to accomplish certain tasks. The game doesn't even save when you tell it to. It is not worth your money.
