Top Critic Average
Lego Worlds is super silly fun for anyone who picks it up. It's especially fun for fans of Lego and the TT approach to the Lego games. It's also fun for anyone who happens to like Minecraft-style games.
There are lots of great ideas here, and every now and then you can see glimpses of what kind of potential those ideas have, but this is a gaming equivalent of what happens when you pull a tray of cookies out of the oven too early, leaving you underdone treats.
LEGO Worlds does an interesting job in standing out from the competition. It has had years to develop its own brand of digital block building, and for the most part it succeeds. Although its controls are a little fiddly, its freedom to build and explore are amazingly detailed.
Lego Worlds is what I have always wanted from a Lego title. It's allowed my son and I to create builds we couldn't ever envision in the real world, let alone afford to buy all the bricks for!
I had a lot of fun with LEGO Worlds, and I look forward to seeing what the next game in the long-running LEGO series has to offer. There’s a ton of content in this latest release, so you’ll be spending a ton of hours playing in single or multiplayer every day for a long, long time!
The freedom and easy going nature that LEGO Worlds offers has kept me coming back for more, and I can easily see myself playing the game for a long time to come in the future. Whilst new releases come and go, there’s something about the charming world building and sense of discover that LEGO Worlds offers that I simply can’t get enough of. It’s certainly no ‘Minecraft’ clone, but rather its own enjoyable entity that really manages to embrace the creativity of the LEGO brand. I spent endless hours playing with LEGO as a kid and LEGO Worlds ultimately proves that the bricks still have that strong appeal to me even as an adult. It’s certainly got its fair share of flaws with the repetitive nature of objectives, awkward controls, and sketchy camera, but behind all of those is a great game that’ll certain provide some relief for any gamer’s creative itch.
Stupidly enjoyable and endlessly charming, LEGO Worlds is the gift that keeps on giving with different biomes – jungles, spooky forests, deserts, swamps, candy lands with gingerbread men and more - an adventure filled with quests and infinite scope to make whatever you want. LEGO Worlds is fantastic.
LEGO Worlds may not be built on the mighty foundation of survival and building, but the content in place is certainly a welcome addition. Whilst the quests could certainly do with a little more inspiration, it will be the infinite Master Builder possibilities, with the many thousands of LEGO bricks available, that you’ll be remembering this classic for.
LEGO Worlds is a crafting game very easy to play and only limited by your imagination. Unfortunately, the game has some technical problems, such as popping...

LEGO Worlds is a delightful game, full of whimsy with tonnes of things to see and do. The draw of exploration is excellent as is the myriad of items to collect, but frame rate issues and quest bugs slow the gameplay down a bit.
LEGO Worlds may not have a story mode that emulates the whimsy of its licensed tie-ins or a game engine that runs at a consistently smooth rate, but it may just be the purest LEGO game ever made thanks to a sandbox that has solid family-friendly foundations.
Overall, it may be a pain to have to collect each type of brick that you want to use, but you’ll learn things. I do like this game, and I’m not big on open sandboxes. Or, perhaps I like it because of that.
LEGO Worlds will surely fill those who have always been fascinated by the idea of a digital version of the Danish construction game. The possibilities are interesting and everything has been done to please LEGO fans, but on the level of pure gaming, the adventure is soon struck with redundancy. LEGO Worlds is a promise that one could hope it gets better in the years to come.
LEGO Worlds is commendable for its environmental diversity and the power of its creative tools to build anything you can dream of or manipulate every castle, hillside, and forest in sight. Unfortunately, fiddly menus, a pretty terrible combat system, and at times clunky and unfriendly construction controls weigh down on the wonder of finding and creating. Despite all this, I still find myself drawn back into it to discover what more the designers have hidden in the world-generation code, as coming across a massive ruined castle or an active volcano for the first time is always a treat - and an inspiration for what I want to build next.
Overall, LEGO Worlds is a LEGO game many fans of the franchise have been waiting for. Between the robust create tools and ability to discover randomly generated worlds, LEGO Worlds offers a ton of great fun. While it’s not nearly as addictive or simple as a game like Minecraft, it should be viewed as a different take on the Create-Your-Own-World genre. The game is unfortunately brought down by it’s floaty and odd controls, but having thousands of classic LEGOs in the game can make up for it if you’re looking for a nostalgic LEGO trip.
LEGO Worlds is a delightful game, and one my son absolutely adores. It is a blast to play, and outside some weird design choices, feels like a solid foundation for them to build upon. Also the price tag is just right, making it an easy game to recommend, especially with those who have kids. There is a ton of content packed in here.
LEGO Worlds can be a bit hit-or-miss. The game has switched up the series' formula and it is refreshing to be let loose and explore the vast amount of worlds on offer. The freedom that comes with all of the creative tools makes for an enjoyable experience as you explore and the addition of dungeons adds a new layer of challenge that LEGO games have never seen before.
Despite its huge potential, LEGO Worlds it's still far from being a real alternative to Mojang's Minecraft. The latest entry in the LEGO franchise offers a nice game experience and a great price, but it also has several problems such as the lack of variety compared to the activities of previous games, a painful camera and some technical issues. If you can tolerate all those flaws, then you'd probably love the freedom to create anything you want with tons of different LEGO bricks.

If you were expecting Minecraft but with Legos, you'll probably be a little disappointed. The game lacks the ultimate freedom you find there but covers everything with oodles of Lego charm and personality. Lego Worlds is fun to play, that's for sure, but the longevity aspect will potentially be linked to how old you are.
"Lego Worlds" is basically Lego Minecraft, though the game isn't flawless and the general shallowness hurts the experience. But in spite of all this, it's a great Lego game and there will be lots of fun waiting with in the multiplayer

A little rough around the edges, but LEGO Worlds has huge potential with its extensive creativity and humour. If you can tolerate a wayward camera and occasionally fiddly controls, then there's a wealth of enjoyment to be mined from building, destroying, and collecting.
LEGO Worlds is a nice building game, offering a complete experience packed with some humor, but it lacks diversity in its environements and missions, and sometimes suffers from its bad camera.

LEGO Worlds is a technical accomplishment, containing thousands of bricks and items that allow players to build whatever comes to their mind. There are a few odd decisions and the gameplay will appeal more to a specific demographic, but Traveller's Tales' latest will surely prove a joy for most creative types.
Forget everything you've seen so far of LEGO franchise. In this new LEGO game you are alone in a galaxy where you can visit a great amount of worlds in which you can create all the constructions you imagine. Without crafting, without having to search and store materials, without having to face any enemies, without complications ... LEGO Worlds is probably the best building game you can find in the market today.

Its colorful landscapes built entirely of LEGOs and massive library of LEGO items you can use to create your own worlds are too bountiful to ignore. However, when you’re seeing a miserable 14 FPS and you’re unable to play smoothly, it’s a jarring experience that makes you never want to play with LEGOs again.
LEGO Worlds is a game full of wonderful but poorly implemented ideas. Its first hours are marvelous, but as soon as you get to the creative mode things get messy and the creation tools become a chore to use. It's a game that wants you to love it, the problem is the potential is so wasted that even some LEGO fans may get disappointed. Other than that, the experience overall is entertaining and for its very cheap price, the quality of the content is very good.

Lego Worlds has a lot of potential and the fun of building wherever you want with Lego bricks on its virtual universe, but on the other side it feels half-cooked with random and tedious activities, a problematic camera and some technical issues. The worst part of the game is that you need to repeat the same again and again in order to begin to really create your own world.

Put it all together and you have a game that’s good enough to keep kids busy on a rainy Sunday afternoon, but nowhere near as absorbing or addictive as Minecraft (which some parents may think is a good thing).
Lego Worlds is one of the most beautiful proposal that could be made to the fans of the most famous construction game. In addition to address a very wide audience, LEGO Worlds allows players to have fun while at the same time explore a colorful universe and start complex constructions with infinite possibilities, everything alone or accompanied by other players. All the more of a reason to deplore the redundancy of quests that become boring too quickly, the camera issues that harm the visibility or the heaviness of the interface : shortcomings that can ruin the enjoyment of the game, and it's without even mentioning crashes and saves troubles that can in that matter lead to a nervous breakdown. This leads to hoping for a quick patch, but also a new entry that could build on all the qualities of the title while erasing all its defects.

It is the unrivalled creative freedom that will soon see many shrug off the issues that LEGO Worlds has and become hooked, building towering LEGO creations that they have only been able to dream of. But, while there are fleeting glimpses at the potential behind the whole idea, there are a few bricks that are missing before it will be completely realised.
The game still has a fair few bugs and an awkward story-based progression mechanism, concerns that should have been ironed out with its retail release. This game is essentially about building Lego wonders and we enjoyed it the most when we totally ignored the storyline. But if that's the kind of experience you're looking for, Minecraft is still the more polished alternative.
Though ambitious and offering a powerful suite of creation tools for meticulous brick builders, LEGO Worlds is let down by its awkward controls, repetitive quests, an overlong trek to collect Gold Bricks, and a ton of technical issues.
When it comes to LEGO Worlds the sad fact is that the constant technical issues make it a frustrating experience, and locking LEGO pieces behind gamification doesn't make it feel like I have achieved something. I congratulate everyone for what they've accomplished with LEGO Worlds, but many of the issues with this game are not easily forgiven in modern game development.
A fun family game for both kids and adults, especially since many generations enjoyed building with LEGO. However, the experience is hindered by a relatively steep learning curve, and unintuitive controls.

Lego Worlds doesn't try to hide the fact that it's a Lego Game set in a Minecraft design. But where Minecraft offers endless possibilities, Lego Worlds isn't nearly as creative.

LEGO Worlds is another fun entry to the series, sure it's not the Minecraft killer but it's a great attempt at a LEGO style sandbox creator. If you're a fan of the Minecraft and LEGO games then this has to be on your must buy list but be warned their are technical issues that hold this game back from its full potential.
There is a sense that with just a couple of updates, Lego Worlds could leap from a captivating proposition to an essential purchase. But for now, the very loose framing that allows Lego Worlds and its players to be free from stifling game design conventions has equally made the experience sometimes ungainly and directionless, leaving its protagonists stranded in a world that is as full of confusion as it is ideas and potential.
LEGO Worlds is so close to being a fantastic idea that all the little hang-ups feel way more annoying than they should. The creation mode is fantastic, but extremely touchy controls-wise; and it's gated off by necessitating the player to complete the same missions dozens of times each if they want its best tools. The idea of a digital LEGO sandbox is the stuff that dreams are made of and, honestly, it just hasn't been done justice this time around.
All in all, Lego Worlds is an amazing Lego game...But as an exploration / sandbox game...It's nothing more than flat, boring and short-lasting. Definitley worth the money if you have a kid who loves Lego, but not if you have two or more children that'll be wanting to clamber around the controller. All you'll get are tears due to the bad optimisation (On console) and lack of +2 player co-op. It's fun, but in short bursts.
This is a platform that Travellers Tales are looking to build on, and indeed have since its original launch on PC, and with continuing growth there’s the potential here for something essential for Lego enthusiasts. As it stands though, for all of the merit and freedom that Lego Worlds affords, it’s still bound by many of the same problems as its predecessors.
I’m hoping that the game would add more features in the future like adding their famous Lego franchise characters in the mix like the Lego Batman or Lego Jurassic Park. I think that would be something that would really draw me back to the game.
Lego Worlds feels like someone dumped a box of Legos on the floor and told you to have fun. Only you've never held a Lego in your hand or heard the word “fun.” This is less of a game and more of an experiment for Lego to figure out its place in the increasingly digital future toy space, which is fine, but I for one would much rather play with real Legos. Or sleep on a pile of Legos.
LEGO Worlds is fun in small increments and I would be lying if I said this game does not hit the target audience's expectations. If you like sandbox games with open-ended gameplay, or are looking for a decent Minecraft alternative, this game is for you; unfortunately there just was not enough substance in the aimless gameplay loop for me to keep me coming back.
LEGO Worlds feels like a tech demo for what could be in TT's future. There's a lot of promise here, but it lacks direction and purpose. It ends up feeling like TT's signature LEGO elements meets No Man's Sky meets Minecraft. That means it contains all the problems these other titles suffer from.
While the concept of a LEGO based sandbox is irresistibly charming and promising, LEGO Worlds unfortunately misses all the right marks. From a presentation lens, the LEGO premise is used well, but it never feels in tune with the level design, and the multiplayer, one of the biggest draws, is underutilized and underdeveloped. For a younger audience, the single-player might serve as a decent time killer, as the overall presentation is colourful and inviting, and the initial hour of figuring out what and how to build is exciting, but fans of either LEGO or the sandbox genre will be left wanting so much more than what LEGO Worlds can offer.
