    The mix of exploration, sandpit and story elements makes it feel fresher than recent LEGO games. Plus it’s just plain cool to walk around as Emmet or Wildstyle while talking to the likes of Batman and Unikitty.

    The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame isn't the groundbreaking reinvention the franchise so desperately needs, but it's still a step in the right direction. It's still got the same one-note combat (even with some Master Builder special attacks thrown in for good measure) and missions too often boil down to 'Go find enough resources to build this item, which opens this door, etc', but for all the times it falls into the pitfalls of its own past, there's plenty to appreciate. The focus on collecting resources makes total sense for a game all about breaking everything in sight, and the mixture of sandbox levels and creative building options is a timely reminder that LEGO Worlds has plenty of ideas still worth revisiting.

    It feels like the movie… it’s accessible and sometimes fun, but it hardly surprises someone anymore. It lacks challenge and structure, but it offers quite a lot of content and some great moments.

    Designed for players who love the LEGO universe, this new entry to the franchise feels tailor-made for a young audience. For more hardcore gamers, it looks repetitive, lacks of originality and doesn't even follow the movie in terms of story telling.

    The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame tries to tweak the formula of the previous game and despite providing some fun moments and being an accessible game with plenty of content, it doesn't fulfill its goals when it comes to deliver a competent, enjoyable game. Its uninteresting world, lack of connection with the movie and technical issues make this a passable effort that will disappoint those looking for a good experience based on the movie.

    Despite the tone of this review, The LEGO Game 2 Videogame is not terrible. But even my 5-year-old son feels more at home in LEGO games like LEGO Harry Potter, LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and even the recent LEGO The Incredibles. These games are imbued with a brick-ton of character that makes experiencing these LEGO-ized romps a blast. The heart of The LEGO Movie film series did not translate to The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame, unfortunately. The empty world, mundane gameplay, and cardboard cutout characters make this one a bit more difficult to enjoy. In Bricksburg, everything is meh.

    In general, this game is just flat out unenjoyable. It’s sad how this Lego game is completely devoid of the unique humor and style which made previous Lego games so enjoyable. This personality and flair, which has been a staple of the Lego video game brand, being absent from this latest title is disheartening. I’d recommend avoiding The Lego Movie 2 Videogame unless you have to play absolutely everything Lego. Even then, there are just much better games in the series that deserve your attention.

    Enjoyable in an easy gaming sort of way. Not challenging but it kept my attention. I will play it again.

Drawings and graphics are not bad. BUT gameplay mechanics are boring. Puzzles are not compelling at all. FPS drops are very frustrating. AS A RESULT, if you are looking for a quality Lego game, I suggest you stay away from The LEGO Movie 2: The Video Game. Expand
