What I liked:
- Fans of the LEGO games will no doubt be satisfied with the amount of content that’s available because it will definitely keep you occupied for hours and hours.
- I’ve always loved the presentation side of things in these game’s and once again I enjoyed what both the visuals and sound design delivered to me.
- There’s a ton of customisation at your fingertips and messing around with different options means replaybilty is quite high because of this.
- Playing as each of the different character’s was a a worthwhile experience because each one has variety and most important of all each one is fun.
What I didn’t like:
- Unfortunately the game suffers with the usual technical issues that have been present in a number of different LEGO games.
- Whilst there are a number of worlds you can get to grips with a lot of these worlds feel lifeless and in the end they become pretty repetetive.
- The story failed to pack a punch in my opinion and this meant that it didn’t always keep me interested during my time with the game.
Does The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame do enough to get a recommendation from me?
All in all me and my children love anything to do with LEGO but without a doubt we especially love the game’s. As you can imagine then both me and my children were eager to get to grips with The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame and whilst it wasn’t our most enjoyable LEGO experience it still provided us with quite a few fun moments. Right off the bat then you’re introduced to the usual LEGO style presentation and this is a very good thing because I’ve always liked the style that’s present in both the visuals and sound design when it comes to these game’s. Something I don’t like though are the technical issues that come along with it and once again they’re unfortunately present here. I was however able to look past these issues in the end and when I did the gameplay kept me occupied for the most part because playing as each character was a fun experience. The story unfortunately though wasn’t as fun and me and my children did lose interest in it a couple of times during our playthrough. Thankfully the content the game has rectified this and we quickly started having fun again because there’s plenty to see and do with a ton of customisation thrown in for good measure as well. At the end of the day then even though the LEGO formula isn’t as fresh as it once was it still does enough to tick quite a few boxes and if you look past the shortcomings that are present I’m sure you’ll enjoy what The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame brings to the franchise.
I rate The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame 7/10.
