Go back to the world of the LEGO Movie and help Emmet defeat a new threat to his LEGO world. Here is our The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame Review.
The LEGO Movie 2: The Videogame is developed by TT Games and published by TT Games and Warner Bros. Games. The game was released on March 18, 2013, for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch on April 4, 2017.
During your adventure back in the Lego Movie universe, you take a brand new approach to how the game works. This time, the game is a fully open world for you to explore and help its inhabitants and collect bricks. This change has both its upsides and downsides. The game does now feel a lot less linear, especially because the characters don’t matter at all anymore, it’s all about the gadgets you get and can use that you will unlock during the story.
Another change is the removal of replayable levels, I did mind this a bit less than the removal of character traits but still is a bit sad to see. Due to everything taking place in the open world, the level replay is not really needed, because the worlds are just there to explore. Those worlds all have their cool setpieces, but also those feel a lot less cool than the ones we used to have in the levels or even old hubs/open worlds.
I see this game as a beta for what they can do with their next game, LEGO Star Wars The Skywalker Saga, and I think they made the right choice and really just tried to see what works and what doesn’t. This doesn’t take away from the fun in any way, because the story still is nice to play, it just misses some beats from both the gameplay aspect and even the story from the movie in some ways. After playing the game, I wanted to see the movie, mainly due to the game making the story a bit confusing at times, and I do think the game gives you a watered-down version of what the story actually is to make it work in a game setting. What they did do to “fix” this is by giving you a few extra planets with their own side stories based on some of the worlds seen in the movies and even based on the UniKitty tv show.
Visually the game is very pleasant to look at for the most part, but in the sorting area world, it did get a bit overwhelming with all the bright colors that are just scattered everywhere. Soundwise, the game is just as enjoyable as the 1st one with nice and catchy tunes playing throughout that get stuck inside your head at times, this is of course carried over from the 1st movie/game as well.
