I have only played this game for about an hour, but so far it is excellent. I usually enjoy the LEGO games, but this one is possibly the best so far. It is funny as usual, and easy to pick up and play. Even in the short time I have played this one, there is more to it. There is more open ended exploring and more in depth game play. Classes, learning spells and potions. Looks to be a great addition to the LEGO games.
I just got done with the first year and there are some things I noticed that are lacking. The levels are pretty short. They just cram tons of stuff to blow up into one tiny space so you're in one spot for a while collecting coins. Also there wasn't any co-op puzzles (or puzzles at all for that matter) that weren't just just stand on a platform while the other person lifts it. Just seems like the other lego games were more tricky and more detailed in gameplay. This one is still fun just not as good IMO.
