    This game is so much fun. The starter pack includes real LEGO and the game itself brings a lot of innovations and renovations.

    Lego Dimensions follows the trend of solid gameplay from developer TT Games while introducing new mechanics with the included toy pad and minifigures.

    A masterful mash-up - but if you want to see everything on offer, it'll cost you an arm and a Lego. [Dec 2015, p.74]

    What really sets Lego Dimensions apart from the rest, is that it removes the line between toy and video game and has you play in both the real world and virtual one. All of these things come together to create something much better than its interlocking parts.

    LEGO Dimensions is the bet of Warner in the toys-to-life genre. The high price of its expansions is a hard to solve issue, even though enjoyment is guaranteed. The mix of several franchises and well-known brands is one of its best assets, clearly aiming for LEGO collectors.

    If anything justifies the toys-to-life tag, it's LEGO Dimensions, which thanks to its fresh take on the toy portal, brilliantly varied licences and sets that actually need building, has reinvigorated what is still a relatively new genre. Disney and Skylanders may just have to raise their techy-toy game.

    LEGO Dimensions could have been a really good challenger for Skylanders. Plenty of IP's at disposal, some good and new ideas about using NFC figures differently... But the game is far too hard to read from time to time, its difficulty level is too random and, last but not least, the LEGO Dimensions Packs are way too expensive.

    this is quite possibly the definitive lego game ever made. the main story line is huge and for add replay the individual world that you canthis is quite possibly the definitive lego game ever made. the main story line is huge and for add replay the individual world that you can freely explore afterwards are big. I took a break from the main storyline and visited the lord of the rings world and its big has all the places from the movie you would expect. you can freely explore and do random quests. and the world s looks amazing. this game I recommend. it is definitely better than infinity or sky landers and in the long run cost less. as this is not a yearly buy and the developers will just keep adding level packs and worlds for at least the next three years so the toys you buy wont be useless next year like the other two competitors.

The great thing about the toys for this game is that they're actually Lego figures, so if you're a kid and don't actually have the game, you could still play with the figures. The gameplay about what you'd expect in a Lego game, except for the twists and turns that the portal has (the thing that you put the figures on). It does get kind of repetitive and it's annoying to hear the characters repeat things a lot, but the gameplay is still fun. If you were going to get any Toys Toy Life game, it should be this. Expand

Coming across gold bricks or parts of levels which you don't have the characters to do is rubbish and easily the worst aspect of this game. Since then I have got all the characters I need and now it's a complete game it is one of my favorite. The story is fun and entertaining, the game play is the usual Lego template and the graphics are nice and clean. The best part for me is all the popular culture references, character interactions and scenes from my favorite games/films/tv shows. Expand

    I'm not sure I have enough mehs to give this one.
    LEGO Dimensions is the new addition to the LEGO franchise, and does it do anything to spice up the series? No, not really. The mechanic of buying the figurines is still stupid, and can we all agree that this is a trend that needs to die? The game itself is dull and boring that it's hard to love having Batman in the Simpsons world. As said before, it follows the same formula as past LEGO games. It has some genuine creativity with the levels, plenty of secrets to find, a pretty linear story, and a pretty well-thought out attempt to be funny. It really doesn't do all that much to be original, but it's still a LEGO game, and if you like those types of games with a new setting, this game may be for you, but it's not a game for me.

    LEGO Dimensions gets a 6/10.

    Game is buggy. One of the characters did not work. It seems that lego acknowledge this issue however the provided details on the support pageGame is buggy. One of the characters did not work. It seems that lego acknowledge this issue however the provided details on the support page do not solve the problem.

    Disappointing for the kids and frustrating to us parents.
    Going back to the shop.
