For kids this game might be fun, but for someone going for achievements, stay away from this game.
The game itself is tolerable up until the end, when you finally unlock free play and the madness occurs. Hundreds of glitches start appearing making the game a struggle to 100%. One of these is in level one which can ruin the game entirely. If you use any character other than a construction worker for the final section with the crane, the game will be frozen entirely. This is especially bad since the Xbox One won't allow access to return to the title screen and won't reset if you try anything else. This problem could be fixed with any other console but for the Xbox One it's horrible.
Another problem I had with this game was also how lazy it was made. The characters were generic besides the main ones, some who were probably put in without thinking and are completely useless. The cutscenes in the game are literally scenes from the movie itself and the story is exactly the same. Other Lego titles had a rough telling of their cinema counterparts but this one is completely copied. I feel sorry for people who paid to see the movie since the game is the entire movie itself.
All in all a great game for kids, but if you want to rent it for achievements, rent the Xbox 360 version instead and save yourself the trouble.
Or at least it seems that way to me. I played it with my son over a weekend and achieved 75% completion. If you're looking for a lego game with more content, I would suggest Lego Marvel or even better, Lego Hobbit. This game still followed the same theme of other games in terms of what to do and how to do it. It was satisfying, but not amazing.
