Summary: Nestled right between ' Lego Marvel Super Heroes ' and ' Lego The Hobbit comes 'The Lego Movie Videogame.' Unlike its fellow Lego games, 'The Lego Movie Videogame' was shrouded in mystery right up until release, with scenes from the movie taking the place of gameplay footage. Of course, the movie was somewhat mysterious in its own right, an apparent mish-mash of licenses and with a story about the Special, and the conflict between the Master Builders and President...
Conclusion: The LEGO Movie Videogame extends a concise and hilarious film into a much longer and less consistent interactive experience that sometimes dips into boring territory. Amusing scenarios and eye-catching environments are a plus, as is the wide unlockable hero roster, but most of the missions feel like an unimaginative retread of the same LEGO game formula. It's solidly enjoyable – but nowhere near awesome.
Pros: Nice location variety, Great film cutscenes, Diverse heroes
Conclusion: Funny, colorful, and full of personality, The Lego Movie Videogame not only successfully builds from its source material but is also a great example of why Lego games are so much fun to play.
Pros: Action-packed chapters that highlight the film’s charm, A witty cast of characters, Plenty of unlockables to collect and discover
Cons: Glitches can ruin your fun, Chapters are short, Less content than previous Lego games
Conclusion: Concept: A classically designed Lego game that provides a deeper look at the worlds and characters from the film
Graphics: A visual marvel consisting of detailed worlds made entirely out of bricks. I often would sit back and look at the fine craftsmanship of each building. Fans of Lego’s modular sets have plenty of new custom options to add to their city streets
Sound: Many of the voice actors reprise their roles, and that infectious song “Everything is Awesome” seems to...
Summary: The Lego Movie Videogame is the culmination of a surprising series of unlikely events. Based on a successful movie that quite possibly wouldn't even exist if there weren't first successful games and toy play sets inspired by similarly endearing movies before it, this newest interactive journey through the world of branded plastic blocks is a satisfying companion piece to its theatrical source material.
Pros: Painstakingly faithful to the film, Vibrant, charming plastic worlds to explore, Easy to get into, Avoids tedious filler
Summary: Sadly, LEGO The Movie Videogame fails to live up to the expectations set by both it’s source material and its video gaming forebears. A few inspired moments of gameplay give way to a bland and tired retread, while lacking any real substance to provide reason to revisit. Long loading times, last-gen caliber graphics and moments where bugs stop gameplay underline the lack of attention.
Pros: The world is truly all built in LEGO., Drop-in, drop-out co-op works well, Lots of special items, characters to unlock
Cons: Game is a bland retelling of the movie, Closed world with uninteresting gameplay, Long load times, no next-gen features or benefits, Game bugs force restarts
Summary: The video game adaptation of the film may not quite be up to the same standards of some of the other Lego franchise games - such as the aforementioned Lego Marvel - but as movie tie-ins go it’s one of the best I've played! Fans of the film will also lap up the graphics, characters and Lego bashing fun!
Conclusion: TT Games is synonymous with the Lego licence, with their tie-in titles veering towards the thirty count by now. In recent years the focus has shifted from clear individuality between the gameplay of each, while the actual block-making has had a smaller role in the process. However, it's difficult to be unhappy given the great co-op and characterisation of familiar franchises, even if the template was starting to wear a bit thin.
Pros: Lot of new content, environments now fully blocky, gameplay variation
Conclusion: The LEGO Movie Videogame ist ein nettes Spiel, mehr jedoch nicht. Und was es mit dem Wörtchen "nett" auf sich hat, wissen die meisten von euch. Sprich: Das Spiel ist nicht schlecht, es gibt aber viele LEGO-Titel, die einfach mehr Spaß machen. Gerade aus dem Film zum Spiel hätte TT wesentlich mehr machen müssen. Nur ein wirklich neues Feature mit dem frischen Minispiel gibt es, das findet ihr so aber auch in LEGO Der Hobbit.
Pros: LEGO typische Knuddeloptik, Spiegelungen auf den LEGO-Steinchen, Originalsprecher in der deutschen Version, gewohnter LEGO-Soundtrack,..., LEGO-typische, einfache Bedienung, gewohntes Missions- und Rätseldesign, Tipps in Ladebildschirmen, simple Rätsel, daher leicht für Neulinge, guter, dynamischer Splitscreen
Cons: kaum optische Aufwertungen im Vergleich zu den anderen Versionen des Spiels, Gelegentlich ungünstige Kameraperspektive, … der jedoch keine echten Highlights bietet, zu kurze Spielzeit, keine offene Spielwelt, kaum Neuerungen, Profis werden nicht gefordert, der Story kann man nur dann wirklich folgen, wenn man den Film bereits kennt, kein Onlinemodus
