I hate to say it but this has been one of the worst LEGO games I have ever played, and I have played almost every LEGO game to hit consoles.
The storyline is.....lacking. Every character has lines that are "I'm so stupid I think I'm being funny". And they took DC Comic characters...and trashed them. Batman is a fool who thinks he is awesome everything he does is perfect. Superman is an arrogant jerk. The Green Lantern is a fanboy with stalker issues towards Superman....and Wonder Woman is..well, a wall flower. There is a character name Unikitty, I kid you not. A cat, with a unicorn horn, that was drawn for an 8-bit first generation game, and put into this game as a barely 3D character.
The visuals, are....ok. Not top of the line, but someone needed an intervention before creating one level, which literally made me nauseous.
The music....I had to mute the sound just to keep my ears from bleeding. Techno music mixed with a happy cutesy overtone. Oh, and there is one line from their main song..."Everything is awesoooome!!!!" You hear that every time you get the required amount of coins in a level. It will quickly drive you insane... it did for me.
I didn't even try to platinum this. I, somehow, pushed through and beat the storyline(I must be a glutton for punishment), then sent it back quickly. I hope the next time they try to make a movie/game, they get someone who wants to be known for awesome script writing and story telling.
I gave it a 4 simply because I beat the story. Any game that nearly makes me lose my lunch (literally), is not worthy of a decent rating.

As a game made for KIDS this game is pretty good, not very long, beat it in a few hours. Achieves/Trophies are easy to get in your into that. But yeah if you play this game keep in mind it was made for kids and that is where the humor lies.

If you've played previous Lego games, you have a general idea what to expect. The Lego Movie Videogame doesn't deviate from its successful predecessors' formula. As always, you must lead a band of merry plastic characters around a vibrant world filled with rudimentary puzzles and enemies who fall to pieces when they meet their demise. Some basic ingenuity allows you to advance to the next set piece with minimal difficulty, and level hubs tie the action-oriented stages together while offering incentive to explore. Puzzles are simple enough that children should be able to solve them just through experimenting, but too many of them take a paint-by-numbers approach. You simply search for an obvious piece of the architecture that Emmet can drill, break everything apart until you find glowing points of interest that can be assembled, or look for a point on a distant ledge to grapple. Throw in some mild brawling elements--with no fear of failure, aside from a lower rating upon completion of the stage--and you have the bulk of the game. It can wear thin at times, but that's not a new problem for the franchise.
