Step into a LEGO® game unlike any other and become a true Master Builder!
The LEGO Movie Videogame, released with the highly anticipated “The LEGO Movie,” from Warner Bros. Pictures, Village Roadshow Pictures and LEGO System A/S, takes players on an awesome adventure through fantastical LEGO worlds, including Bricksburg, Cloud Cuckoo Land and the Wild West of Flatbush Gulch. And for the first time ever in a LEGO game, all environments are made entirely of digital LEGO bricks.
“We challenged ourselves to introduce a new element never-before-seen in any LEGO game and did that with environments made entirely out of LEGO bricks, giving players more authentic opportunities to interact with the world around them,” said Tom Stone, Managing Director, TT Games Publishing. “This is a chance for every LEGO builder to collect LEGO instruction pages and harness the powers of the Master Builders.”
Based on the humorous and action-packed events from the film, The LEGO Movie Videogame puts players in control of Emmet, an ordinary LEGO minifigure mistakenly thought to be “The Special” — a character prophesized to save the world from an evil LEGO tyrant. Using the abilities of more than 90 characters inspired by the film, which include an unlikely cast from some of the world’s most beloved and well-knowing properties, including DC Comics Super Heroes like Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman, family members of all ages will navigate 15 exciting levels in the console version and 45 action-packed missions in the handheld version. With unexpected moments and twists at every level, gamers will build their way -through a uniquely LEGO adventure on their ultimate mission to bring creativity to their LEGO world.
Among the playable characters in the game are fan-favorites from the film like Emmet, voiced by Chris Pratt; Vitruvius, voiced by Morgan Freeman; Wyldstyle, voiced by Elizabeth Banks; Batman, voiced by Will Arnett; and Lord Business, voiced by Will Ferrell.
The first thing my son said when he started playing the game was “Wow, Will Ferrell is in this!” Yes, he is an Anchorman fan, he was very happy to be playing in the game with one of his favorite actors.
My son loved that there were some scenes from the movie in the game (he memorized the commercials), and that he could build and destroy. I am not being paid to say this, but he said this was better than the other Lego video games, and trust me he has played them all. And that’s the review. I am not a gamer site, I do not do technical reviews. I only know from my son what he likes. This one is a winner, this is one I probably would have had to buy if I wasn’t lucky enough to receive a copy. And yes, we do buy plenty of video games!
Lastly, I was unable to get a ticket to see this movie from my PR connections, so imagine my happiness when I opened this game and saw a coupon for 1 free movie ticket! We were planning on meeting a friend for the half price, before noon showing, this was perfect timing! Buy the game, you will have a free ticket as well!
