THE LEGO MOVIE VIDEOGAME

WB Games



SPACESHIPS!

People fear difference. Actually, let’s rephrase that. Ignorant people fear difference.

While after many years trip-tropping across this planet that somebody named ‘Earth’ has reinforced this daily, we’ve always found solace in the fact that the world of LEGO worships and inspires difference, specifically in the form of promoting wild creativity. So, it was pretty bummertastical to find out that the same “you must be worker bee” shit we put up with at school is just as rampant where the studs are.

It’s all the fault of President Business. He just wants Brickburg’s denizens to adhere to the instructions. Don’t question the script, don’t think outside the square, just build ’em how they should be and everything will be Diamond Dogs. Erm, Hunky Dory.
 
Mercifully though, there are ‘master builders’. Those who can see a bunch of LEGO bits, create new things way beyond the confines of instructional scripts and fight the powers that be. Our hero, Emmet, is one such master builder.

Well, he’s mistaken for one...

This is the basic basis for The LEGO Movie, and by default this game that’s based on it. If you’ve not seen the former (why?!), don’t play the latter, because spoilers. Big spoily spoilers, bigger than Batman could crave for his Batmobile.

If you’re all movied up though, this is treatgasmic. The first noticeable thing is that everything is aweso... erm, everything is LEGO. Everything! None of this real stuff with added blocky bits like every other LEGO game ever, this is the full blocky.

While similar, it’s more kiddie-skewed than other LEGO games – which many of those conformist types mistakenly believe are exclusively childish. It shares many, erm, idiosyncrasies, but it’s still hyper-fun – and hyper-funny - and requires some creativity to complete.

That, of course, is what LEGO is all about – and it’s AWESOME!

take me back to the start...
