May 19, 2023LEGO 2K Drive may not be a serious adventure title, but it is certainly a must-play experience for anyone interested in a good time.
May 17, 2023With very clears ideas and a very well made execution, LEGO 2K Drive brings a refreshment for the LEGO games. A wonderful racing game ideal for any kind of player and of course, designed for the most hard core fans of the construction toys.
May 19, 2023Lego 2K Drive builds an incredibly inviting world where speed and silliness reign supreme as you race and morph across its delightfully destructible setting. Despite some frustrating mission design and a smattering of bugs, Lego 2K Drive quickly won me over with its absurd narrative full of irreverent dialogue and moreish open-world challenges. If only the specter of microtransactions didn’t loom so large in this kid-friendly game, it would make for an even smoother ride.
May 16, 20232K Drive really shines when competing and exploring its open world, but the microtransactions feel a bit damaging for the overall experience.
May 24, 2023LEGO 2K Drive checks off all the right boxes for what a fun cart racing game should be—and its quintessential LEGO charm is there—but it feels like a missed opportunity to really build a world teeming with excitement.
May 19, 2023LEGO 2K Drive is not at the level of a LEGO game, it feels very empty and boring after a few hours. The sound and graphics could be better, also not one of all the technology of the PS5 in a correct way. It does not feel like an original game, the most valuable thing about the game is the multiplayer mode but it is not enough to cover up all the bad things that the game has.

Love the world's, though I hope they add more variety as the game progresses. Looks good, plays good, can build anything you want, pure fun. Very child friendly but who cares? I miss having silly stories like this.
Now as for microtransactions, people are up in arms over it...why? Everything can be bought with in game money which isn't hard to get if you play the game and a lot of the stuff is pointless to buy other than the sets which already got them all. Seriously don't get the hate. Microtransactions shouldnt be in a paid game but just don't buy stuff. And for all the people worried about kids, I have this one simple trick...don't attach your credit card to the account! Wow, so easy! Should there be microtransactions? No. Is it game ruining? No, not at all.
Overall fun game, my favorite kart racer in years. Might be a bit pricey for some but for me was worth it, others may want to wait for a sale… Expand

Colourful, varied biomes filled with charm and personality; Nails the fundamentals of its driving mechanics; Uninterrupted driving creates a great sense of constant momentum; Creation tools boast a vast array of options and are a lot of fun to use.
Inconsistent AI; Lack of challenge devalues ancillary gameplay systems; Dull and unengaging open world content; Story mode's structure is a little grindy and repetitive; Bland humour.
Clearly, LEGO 2K Drive is an uneven experience. There’s a lot to like about it, and there’s no denying that at it’s core, it can be legitimately fun. All of that comes with caveats though. While the driving is fun, the races are held back by inconsistent AI. While the open world maps are great to look at and drive around in, the content they’re packed with is not the most compelling. While I like how approachable and charming the game is, it caters to younger audiences so much that it ends up feeling a little shallow. At least there’s the whole creation and customization aspect, which is one area where LEGO 2K Drive is a triumph without any reservations. Ultimately, if you’re looking for an arcade-style racer that can lay legitimate claim to the Mario Kart throne, this will probably leave you disappointed, but if all you want is a fun and laid-back (if unremarkable) racing game, then you’re in luck, because that’s precisely what LEGO 2K Drive is.… Expand
May 20, 2023As an avid LEGO fan and enthusiastic gamer, I was initially excited to try out the LEGO racing game. The game offers a colorful and enjoyableAs an avid LEGO fan and enthusiastic gamer, I was initially excited to try out the LEGO racing game. The game offers a colorful and enjoyable world where young players can race their favorite LEGO vehicles in exciting competitions. However, while there are some positive aspects to this game, it falls short due to both the developer's greediness in implementing hidden content behind microtransactions and technical limitations that affect its performance.
The child-friendly atmosphere of the game remains its strongest point. The vibrant LEGO worlds and adorable characters create an enchanting setting for young players. The controls, although relatively easy to learn, do not compensate for the technical shortcomings that become apparent during gameplay. Even with powerful PC hardware, the game tends to run rather poorly, resulting in subpar performance that detracts from the overall experience.
Furthermore, the negative impact of the microtransactions exacerbates the disappointing technical limitations. Hiding game content behind paywalls is particularly frustrating in a game targeted at children. It creates a sense of imbalance and undermines the enjoyment of the gameplay. The constant interruptions for additional purchases hinder the immersion and disrupt the flow of the game.
Although the graphics are appealing and the music is cheerful, the technical issues prevent players from fully appreciating these positive aspects. The selection of vehicles and characters is somewhat diverse, offering kids the opportunity to discover their favorites. However, it's disheartening that some of these options are locked behind additional payments, further diminishing the overall experience.
In conclusion, the LEGO racing game falls short of its potential and earns a mediocre rating. Despite its child-friendly atmosphere, enjoyable races, and opportunities for creativity, the technical limitations and greedy monetization practices significantly impact the overall experience. Parents should be aware of the technical issues and the game's monetization strategy, taking necessary precautions to protect their children from unwanted purchases. It is regrettable that the game's potential for fun and entertainment is marred by both technical and business-related shortcomings.… Expand

May 21, 2023This abomination needs to be shutdown. The precedent that 2K/Lego are trying to present here is appalling. A **LEGO** racing game that atThis abomination needs to be shutdown. The precedent that 2K/Lego are trying to present here is appalling. A **LEGO** racing game that at first glance you would think would be amazing for children and families alike. Perhaps an awesome alternative to Mario Kart that isn’t restricted to Nintendo.
But then you see it’s overpriced price tag, and think wow this must be an awesome premium game right? Lol nope, this is not only overpriced, BUT also incorporates microtransactions AND a battle pass system.
“B-but it’s just cosmetics” the defenders will say, but limiting the creativity of customisation in a game rated for children is horrendously stupid if not borderline illegal. Don’t waste your time with this game if 2K/Lego don’t value you and your wallet.
It’s a shame as the gameplay definitely has some substance but feels more like an early access, than an actual complete game. Perhaps due to the decision to make this into what appears to be a live service game.… Expand
