The LEGO Movie Videogame
Top Critic Average
The LEGO Movie Videogame's diverse backdrops and heroes devolve into tedium and busywork.
Neither a good LEGO game nor tribute to the movie—at best, The LEGO Movie Videogame is enough fun to be called a functioning promotional product.
It goes completely against the spirit of the movie but at least the game is able to celebrate the creativity of its developers, if not its players.
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.
Shorter than the current crop of Lego games, but compacted with excellent world designs and snappy action
The Lego Movie Videogame re-creates and expands on most of the film's greatest moments.
Visually creative, fun levels, great source material and packed with one of the best casts in gaming history.
[I]t's a sprawling game with Traveler's Tales traditional clean look that's pretty and plastic-looking—perfect for a Lego game. It just might have been nice to see some of those scuffs we saw in the movie.
There are a few more misses this time around, and if you're not already a fan of the film then you may want to skip it entirely, but if you absolutely love LEGO games, then it's another game in a well-made, well-presented series. Just be advised that the bright colours of Cloud Cuckooland, coupled with the overbearing music, can cause more than a few headaches. Everything isn't always awesome, but in small doses it can be.
Fun, but it just doesn't have the same appeal as other entries in the series.
