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.
A Lego version of Minecraft sounds too good to be true, and while this isn't as versatile as Mojang's classic it does offer a fun alternative for young builders.
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...

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.
LEGO Wolrds is a good sandbox game, but it lacks a bit in what makes other LEGO games funny.

With Lego Worlds you'll have complete freedom at the cost of been less humorous and beautiful than 'normal' LEGO games.

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.
Part Minecraft and part No Man's Sky, this could be the game Lego purists have always wanted
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.
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 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 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.

The problem however is that the two parts of the game, the open building, and the linear story, just don't seem to mesh very well.
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 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.
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.
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 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.
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.
