  • Summary: Parents need to know that this is an MMORPG -- Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game -- that requires purchase of boxed software as well as a monthly subscription to play. The game is both CARU (Children's Advertising Review Unit) and COPPA (Children's Online Privacy Protection Act) compliant, and although kids will be playing online with other kids, chat is limited to a "white list" of allowed words.

LEGO Universe Review

Reviewboard Magazine
2 November 2010
  • Conclusion: LEGO Universe is what people in the real-estate industry would call a fixer-upper. There are a lot of issues that mask the elements that sets Universe apart from other MMOs, including bugs, strange gameplay choices and a general lack of content. If all you want to do is build, LEGO Universe might provide the perfect outlet for your creative juices at a fraction of the cost of actual LEGO, but you will have to contend with the multitude of issues that plague the wider...

4 October 2010
  • Excerpt: Space Invaders Infinity Gene initially begins in the glorious retro black and white style as you move your ship on a 2D plane along the bottom of the screen. However fear not readers as it starts to evolve pretty quickly. Initially these evolutions just give you the ability to move your ship in all directions or regain your power-ups after you die.

LEGO Universe Review | Universally Appealling?

11 November 2010
  • Conclusion: The Short Version: For older kids, especially ones versed in MMOs, this will provide some good, colourful times in the long term, but the question of whether younger children will be able to 'get' it remains. If you're a parent, you might need to be spending your time helping the little 'un play it more than you might wish.
  • Pros: Loads to do, Colourful and vibrant world, Building stuff, while not to Minecraft levels, is great fun
  • Cons: Loads to do, Colourful and vibrant world, Building stuff, while not to Minecraft levels, is great fun, Is it really for kids?, Still too much grinding, Rubbish inventory

'Lego Universe' (PC)

Digital Spy
25 July 2010
  • Excerpt: aims to create a massively multiplayer online world for playing with those famous bricks. The game, developed by US studio NetDevil, has been out for a week now and is just starting to build a life of its own, as players explore the far reaches of the universe with their minifigure (minifig) characters. The MMO stays very true to the joys of Lego, with the multiple gaming worlds being wrapped in a vibrant and playful visual and audio presentation.
