The LEGO NINJAGO Movie Video Game will allow players to delve into the world of the new big-screen animated adventure The LEGO NINJAGO Movie. In the game, players battle their way through waves of enemies with honour and skill as their favourite ninjas Lloyd, Nya, Jay, Kai, Cole, Zane and Master Wu to defend their home island of Ninjago from the evil Lord Garmadon and his Shark Army. To do so, they must master the art which allows them to traverse Ninjago by wall-running, high-jumping and battling the foes of Ninjago to rank up and upgrade the ninja's combat skills.
Players can harness the power of Spinjitzu combat to defend Ninjago together. Features: Play the Action-Packed Movie: Players can become their favourite Ninjago character and experience the movie in a new, exciting way. Master Ninjagility and Combat Skills: Players traverse open-world environments by mastering running, grappling, jumping and other unique Ninja skills to defeat enemies and defend Ninjago City Exciting New Locations: The game features eight large, action-packed locations based on the story of The LEGO NINJAGO Movie, each with its own unique Challenge Dojo where players can put their combat skills to the test and battle with increasingly tougher enemies.
Battle Maps: Players can go up against their friends and family in four different game modes with competitive split-screen local gameplay for up to four players.
The Lego Ninjago Movie Video Game ends up being a relatively small step forward for Lego games, but is an excellent use of the Ninjago license, making its high-flying ninjas feel powerful and unique.
It’s a LEGO game alright, and these small but meaningful changes make it one of the better titles in the collection. Even if the Ninjago franchise doesn’t interest you as much as Batman or Marvel Superheroes might, the gameplay and signature LEGO humour makes The LEGO Ninjago Movie Videogame well worth jumping into.
A new video game adaptation of an animated movie with the most famous miniature construction games. The LEGO Ninjago Movie: The videogame takes up the strong points that have made the saga so great, reinforcing them with juicy novelties.
A fun game that may be appealing to those who have enjoyed previous LEGO Games, with a few new features and a bunch of "more of the same" moments.
The LEGO NINJAGO Movie Video Game introduces a decent number of new features to keep the tried and tested LEGO formula up to date. Combat has received another overhaul, adding in an extra layer of depth with upgrades and extravagant attack moves, so it looks much slicker than previous entries. These moves can be put to the test in the enjoyable distraction of the Battle Arenas, which are best experienced with friends. The change in level design may feel unusual at first, but it is refreshing nonetheless even if it does also mean that the game is a short one. Technical issues, most notably loading screens, do also hinder the experience somewhat, but it shouldn't put too much of a dampener on your playthrough as a whole. LEGO fans will no doubt find another fun adventure within, even if it may be over in a flash.
These games are always fun, and we've seen an attempt to introduce some news ideas, but they are never fully executed. If you've played many other games in the series you feel like it's time to have some new additions.
The LEGO Ninjago Movie Video Game isn’t the best Traveller’s Tales offering, but the great combat and the creative ideas to try something new are what prevents it from being a terrible game. Maybe buy it in the sale, but definitely don’t pay full price.
