I don't often write a review for a game but I thought this one was needed. I play all of the Lego games with my wife and we enjoy them thoroughly. This game is a big step backwards for the Lego franchise. Every level is a challenge to get to the end without getting stuck or glitching out in some other way. I've had more problems with glitches in this game than probably any other game I've ever played. I feel this game was rushed out way too quickly just so that it would come out alongside the movie. Not only did I just get stuck in the game but sometimes it would completely crash and take me back to home menu on the ps4. It's entirely unacceptable to release a game in this state and there were zero updates to fix it while I had it.
It was a great game and I enjoyed it a lot. It was somewhat hard to do a few of the challenges and a but annoying to keep re-doing the same level until I completed what the game asked me to do. Now I wanna go watch the movie in theaters. Popped platinum trophy within 9 days
If you've ever played one of the countless Lego-based game installments before, then you probably know what to expect when you play The Lego Movie Videogame. I haven't seen the film on which the game is based, but from what I gathered from a single playthrough is that it follows the source material fairly faithfully, which, for the most part, is charming. This newer Lego game includes the standards established in Lego Batman 2, with human voice acting and open-world exploration in between story missions. It's true that Lego "puzzles" have never been intended to be particularly difficult to solve, but they do seem to have been "dumbed down" even moreso than any other Lego game I've played, and I've played nearly every installment dating back to the PS2 generation. With 15 levels and a somewhat limited open-world environment compared to the likes of Lego Batman 2, and Lego Marvel Super Heroes, it feels somewhat less expansive as the aforementioned, but if you do elect to collect every possible trophy, you will spend a great deal of time with this game. In terms of the PS4 version delivering eye-popping, next-gen graphics dwarfing their respective 360 and PS3 counterparts, you might need to look elsewhere, as other than slightly shinier character models and some texture enhancements, this alleged "next-gen" version doesn't do anything particularly impressive for visual fidelity. It's definitely worth a romp through Legoland once, but unless you're a hardcore trophy addict, I would recommend you try before you buy!
