This fun game is a great addition to the LEGO collection of games. It's not my favorite game (will anything ever beat LEGO Star Wars?) but it's well made and entertaining. The mix of exploration, sandpit and story elements makes it feel fresher than recent LEGO games. Plus it's just plain cool to walk around as Emmet or Wildstyle while talking to the likes of Batman and Unikitty. It's worth checking out, especially if you're a fan of the movie.
Finally bringing something new to the LEGO "Franchise" titles, this might scratch that itch that previous games have been missing, with a lot fewer bugs to boot. It doesn't spell out what happens in the movie, but the ending is certainly a spoiler - just so you're forewarned.
As the song in the film, "everything's not awesome" with this one (camera, screen tearing...), but it still delivers a ton of content and a solid promise of fun if you plan to play it with a kid, In some ways, it's a more open-world-focused offering than other LEGO licensed games, that brings back some ideas lost in LEGO Worlds.

Lego series is not used to be as evolutive as videogames usually are. But with The Lego movie 2: the videogame, TT games changes drastically their way to offer us a title which explores an unseen way of playing in the main Lego series. A twist that reminds their forgotten Lego worlds and that feels to fit perfectly here. Hopefully, an open door to the future of the saga.

The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame is an adventure best taken on your own terms. It’s a fun and imaginative experience that is at its best when you are collecting every character, item, and Master Piece in the game. The only things that hold it back are the long load times and the existence of previous MORE expansive titles in the LEGO Videogame franchise. So, while not everything in this game is awesome, it’s a journey I’m glad I made.
The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame might seem like business as usual, but it's the addition of sandbox bits, the slew of items and gadgets, and the emphasis on exploration and puzzles that make TT's latest LEGO foray a cut above. Everything is (relatively) awesome.
The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame might not be for adults. Even so, it's a game worth your time if you're a completionist, hitting that sweet spot of a 100% completion rate to add more Platinum trophies, and if you love to play video-games with your kids. Playing The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame brings out the kid inside me that ignores whatever cumbersome of a reality we call life has for a few hours. Unfortunately, it does not have enough to keep my younger self out for a long time.
The Lego Movie 2 Video Game is not the best Lego game that we've ever seen, but it could be much fun if you are interested in these type of games. If you have a child or looking for a good game based on animations, The Lego Movie 2 is a nice choice to pick.

Keeping in mind the target audience and the price point, the Lego Movie 2 Videogame presents a game worth considering for fans of the movie, Lego, or casual, family-friendly play.
WORTH CONSIDERING - I give the developers credit for trying some new gameplay ideas, but they mostly failed at creating a funny narrative and worlds that are fun to explore. I was never wowed by anything in the game, and that’s a shame. Still, the co-op can be fun and the game did release at a reasonable $39.99, making it worth considering for younger gamers.
That’s the crux of The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame. It is little more than a curated version of LEGO Worlds with the procedural generation removed and quests strung together to form a semi-coherent path through the loose beats of the movie plot. While this does divorce itself from the formula that TT Games have used for 14 years, delivering on the change that many have called for for years, it’s sorely lacking in the kind of whimsical charm, comedy, quest variety and purposeful design that the series has become famous for.
There's nothing you've not seen before in The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame -- unless you haven't seen the film yet. This is largely a by-the-numbers LEGO platformer with a variety of open levels in which to find collectibles and solve simple puzzles. The low difficulty makes this perfect for children to play with friends or family, and the sandbox area will let you get a little creative too. It's a safe entry in the series that fans will enjoy, but if you're getting tired of the same old formula, there's not much new to see here.
LEGO The Movie 2 Videogame is a good game and that serves to expand the experience if the movie you liked enough. With everything and its narrative and technical problems it becomes quite entertaining and something that can be enjoyed in family from the smallest to the largest. A twist to the original formula that does not end up curdling but we hope to lay the foundations for what is coming.

The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame is clearly inspired by LEGO Worlds. It's easy to play and with a good amount of contents, but lacks in variety and it's way too easy.

Nearly every element of The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame can be described as basic or simple. It doesn't hold a candle to other LEGO games, and while the world-building can be interesting, it is much more limited than LEGO's proper sandbox title. The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame game is the definition of average mediocracy. Rent if you're curious, but don't bother with a purchase unless you find it on deep discount and want the Achievements.
There's just not much to The Lego Movie 2 Videogame that stands out as original. The core mechanics are mostly sound, but the rehashed movie story is told in a disjointed, unappealing fashion, and most of the things the game does well were done even better in previous games in the series.
The LEGO Movie 2 tries to mix things up a bit by using ideas from LEGO Worlds but is dragged down by its repetitive gameplay loop and its technical issues. Only young kids who enjoyed the movie might get something out of this game unfortunately.

The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame is another weak LEGO game with an empty spaces and a lot of construction work, which at some point starts to make you sick.

A new twist on the old formula, The LEGO Movie 2: The Video Game offers up some new mechanics and gameplay but fails at delivering an experience that is either memorable or fun
The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame sits in a weird place between licensed LEGO adventures and a “create-your-own-world” style LEGO game like, well, LEGO Worlds. It’s half of each game, but the two halves never manage to make a whole.
The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame is a throwback to the bad old days of movie tie-ins, this uninspired and dull reskin of LEGO Worlds takes all the good parts of the LEGO games and tosses them in the bin. This is the game that President Business would have designed, full of static environments and boring construction. Everything is far from awesome with The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame.
As someone who was so genuinely moved and inspired by The LEGO Movie 2, it breaks my heart to see that the game was rushed to market and clearly the developers weren’t given the resources to properly respect it, or its audience.
