Summary: Bought it for my 9 year old. He says its a fun game, but was unable to do certain functions. I think he had a hard time trying to figure out how to play certain parts of it and got frustrated. He even tried to google for help on how to better play the game without progress.
Summary: All of the Lego games are fairly buggy on initial release and suffer from odd control issues, but this one seems to have more issues than other games. The split screen is especially troubling in this game making two play much more difficult than in other Lego games. It's a good time time to play and has the expected Lego humor. Overall I would recommend it, but would recommend some of the other Lego video games first.
Summary: this game was fairly good for the most part, but there are some serious issues/bugs/design that hamper the enjoyment. *i understand they are trying to branch out to test different styles to keep people interested, but i enjoy going to one centralized place to unlock characters with coins, instead of having to find gold bricks to unlock at doors which i just dont care for.
Summary: ********* Edited Review ********* UPDATE: Since I posted my original review, the game has been patched! All glitches to the game seem to have been addressed, especially the consistent crashing issue I was experiencing. It still happens *sometimes*, but definitely well within the "okay" range. You shouldn't worry about playing this on the PS3 and messing up your console anymore. My review of the gameplay, design, and observations still stand.
Summary: I liked and disliked this game at the same time. I do own all the lego games and I loved them all but this one just seemed to miss the mark. * My game kept freezing on me and I would have to restart my PS3 multiple times. That was very annoying to me. I should never have to do this! * The chapters were very long and if I froze in the middle of the game I had to start back at the beginning of the chapter. This happened 6 times.
Summary: I have a love for the LEGO games, due to their charm and gameplay. There isn't anything spectacular about this installment that sets it apart from the others in the LEGO series. It's very much the same format, just with different characters and level designs. The same game experience, just a different way of telling it.
Summary: It has true co-op mode which is important to me. I'm less keen on this than the other lego PS3 games - but that's probably more about the style - the quality and design is very similar to other lego games. I just prefer star wars, pirates of the Caribbean and lord of the rings.
