Summary: There are just a few aspects we don't LOVE about this game. 1. if 2 people move too far apart it does the split screen which means each player only sees a small section and often can't see what they need to. 2. there are some parts that when played in pairs one person is standing around waiting while it is all 1 player who has tasks to do. Other than that we loved it and played the entire story section...
The Lego Movie Game, or How I Started Gaming Again For The First Time Since The 80's

Summary: I have this four year old son who is obsessed with The Lego Movie. He's watched it dozens of times, had a Lego themed birthday, begged Santa for a Construct-o-mech... the whole thing. Anyway, since the weather stinks this time if year, I decided to buy the game to see if that could keep us occupied until spring. And it's fun!
Guess they didn't have time to test this before release

Summary: This game has hundreds of bugs. We have to restart levels frequently. We have to shut down the PS3 frequently. Things are just missing from levels, or floating in the air where you cannot interact with them. People get stuck on walls, and just slip until you restart the level. Characters that had been unlocked, become locked again. Pieces move into the way, and block critical operations, like moving into the next area, or aiming lasers at targets. It freezes.
Summary: The kids - older teenagers- have had a great time with this game. Lots of laughing over the comments of the players. Perhaps a bit easy for them but they are still having a great time with it. We have all the Lego games and have had a great time with all of them. I can even play and enjoy these games. No guts or gore. No sex. Just a fun silly game.
Summary: This is easily a 4-star game, but it's marred with major frustrating glitches, especially when playing in 2-player mode. Frequently the game freezes the PS3 entirely and we must power it off manually to recover, losing lots of unsaved progress. It's obvious this game was not well-tested and was possibly rushed to completion. The "small" size of it really isn't a bad thing, I felt it was better than the larger Lego games (such as Batman).
Summary: I love Lego games but this one is completely different from all the others in so many ways. Getting it started is slow loading as is moving from one scene to the next. It is definitely designed more for children but has enjoyable aspects for adults as well. One of the newest things is having something buildt from plans you collect. The item begins to build and then pauses as you select the next piece that is highlighted on the item being built.
Summary: This was the only thing my 7 year old specifically asked for his birthday. He LOVES this game! It's funny and easy to maneuver for children, yet still challenging. There are several levels where my son doesn't exactly get what he's supposed to be doing so he needs some guidance. The game follows along with the storyline and is just as funny and whimsical as the movie.
Very easy to play and completely engaging for kids 5 and ...

Summary: Very easy to play and completely engaging for kids 5 and up who've seen the movie. Little movie clips are included and make it so much fun. Who doesn't love Legos? Great idea for a game...let's build something.
Summary: I've felt like the Lego games have progressed over the years going from title to title, but this one is a huge step back. It is on par with the early Lego games, like the first Star Wars or Indiana Jones and seems a little shorter than most. Also, it is full of bugs and glitches. Most just make it impossible for you to progress in a level, but a few are so bad that they can cause a full system crash.
Summary: I'm a huge fan of the lego video games. I own almost every single one of the lego games and the lego movie one is by far the best one so far in my opinion. Only negative thing about this game is that it needs to be a longer game. Other than that the story line is great and so are all of the wonderful 90 unlockable characters. So if you love the lego video games than this is a must for you.
