This is still a very good game and a worthy addition to any LEGO fan’s collection, but the series’ seams are definitely starting to show.
Players of any age will appreciate the charm and effort TT Games put in to the title, balancing accessibility with small challenges.
The LEGO Movie Videogame delivers what is expected: a good movie-to-game conversion, plenty of the series' trademark humour and a top notch soundtrack. That being said, several flaws remain, such as the lack of an online multiplayer, a low difficulty level and a short lifespan, liabilities which stand in the way of making this a universally-appealing title.
Filled with the series familiar and fun mechanics, The LEGO Movie Videogame is enjoyable for series fans, but ultimately doesn't live up to the fantastic games that have come before it, and once again goes to show that TT does its best work when left to craft original stories instead of adapting existing properties.
