    I don't care what anyone else says, The Lego Movie 2 Videogame is a ton of fun. With a spot-on blend of familiar Lego gameplay, open-world environments, and an assortment of awesome gadgets; what's not to love?

    Finally bringing something new to the LEGO “Franchise” titles, this might scratch that itch that previous games have been missing, with a lot fewer bugs to boot. It doesn’t spell out what happens in the movie, but the ending is certainly a spoiler - just so you’re forewarned.

    The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame opts for a simplification of each and everyone of the elements that define the basic formula of the franchise. All with the aim of becoming a more accessible experience for all audiences. Something that is the greatest virtue and at the same time the biggest defect of the game.

    Thanks to some great puzzles and the mix of LEGO and DUPLO you would think that everything is awesome. Unfortunately it is not due to the lack of dynamic splitscreen, typical bugs and some dull worlds. It's more like everything is just okay.

    There's nothing you've not seen before in The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame -- unless you haven't seen the film yet. This is largely a by-the-numbers LEGO platformer with a variety of open levels in which to find collectibles and solve simple puzzles. The low difficulty makes this perfect for children to play with friends or family, and the sandbox area will let you get a little creative too. It's a safe entry in the series that fans will enjoy, but if you're getting tired of the same old formula, there's not much new to see here.

    A new twist on the old formula, The LEGO Movie 2: The Video Game offers up some new mechanics and gameplay but fails at delivering an experience that is either memorable or fun.

    This just feels like a frustrating cash grab. I take no joy in being so harsh on this game, as I’m sure many of the people who worked on it did their best in what clearly little time they were given – and hey, game development is hard – but they, and LEGO’s target audience, deserve better than this. If you’re looking for a better LEGO game to get into, check out the recent DC Super-Villains, or the re-release of the Harry Potter games.

It’s a fun and imaginative experience that is at its best when you are collecting every character, item, and Master Piece in the game. The only things that hold it back are the long load times and the existence of previous MORE expansive titles in the LEGO Videogame franchise. So, while not everything in this game is awesome, it’s a journey I’m glad I made. Expand

    This isn't the first time and it will not be the last time we will see games based on movies. Some were successful and some weren't.This isn't the first time and it will not be the last time we will see games based on movies. Some were successful and some weren't. Unfortunately this game belongs to the last group. And after the movie LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part left almost a month ago, here's the LEGO Movie 2 Videogame developed by Traveler's Tales. Characters like Emmett, Lucy or Batman are present in this game.

    No, strangest as it may seem, the game does not follow the story of the movie. What I feel about the story mode of the game, I feel it could be slightly longer and it is noted that it was very poorly developed compared to the movie due to the amount of important storyline left behind.

    Like most LEGO games by Traveler's Tales, it's a Free Mode and doesn't change the formula much. The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame uses the same gameplay as LEGO Worlds. Visually, and being a fan of the Danish brand, the game is good and faithfully represents what is LEGO. However, there is a strange scenario during Free mode on the planet Systarian Jungle. If I try to "land" on one of the huge trees with a flying vehicle, the game kills the doll and vehicle. I know most of the people will find this detail useless or almost and for me it was something that should be rectified with an update, because it is something that doesn't make sense.

    In addition to what I said earlier, the player will have to travel across multiple planets on the Systar System or the Rex-Plorer System to complete quests and sub quests, pick up studs, discover treasures, collect relics, pick up Master Pieces, and build certain objects to overcome X obstacle. Yes we can build flying vehicles, cars, motorbikes, boats, and we can also build structures, namely buildings. This last one, we can only do on the planet Syspocalypstar. As you can see, there is much to do.

    We have items that can help us do lots of things. By giving a few examples, Builder Page helps us build certain kinds of things like generators, vehicles, or buildings. The Binnoculars Scanner can analyze objects and unlock certain paths. Danger Fists knock down certain walls and make life easier against our enemies. Paint Wand paints not only the scenarios of the planets but also objects that have no life. The Jet Wings is a Jet Pack in which we can fly for a certain time.

    There are five types of relics that we will get throughout the game and can be opened in the Shop of each planet: Item Relic, which contains weapons, stickers and the like, Character Relic, which contains characters, Construction Relic, which allows building buildings and vehicles, Super Item Relics, which contains super-skill items and Mega-Relics, which contains an Item Relic, Character Relic, and Construction Relic bundle. If we get a repeat item, we get a Mega-Relic Shard and with five of them we get a Mega-Relic. In the Shops we can also buy Bricks objects, weapons, characters, vehicles and bundles. These bricks bundles, be they orange, white or brown, for example, are used to construct the various objects and vehicles. However, it should be mentioned that I took 2 bugs in the Shop that forced me to restart the game. All of this happened when you opened a Mega-Relic. I couldn't see the prizes or go somewhere.

    By definition, the player can initially only play with Emmet. But over time, the player is getting more characters and can play as Batman, Aquaman, Lucy, Benny or Unikitty. There are more than 100 characters that the player can use, not counting with the personalization (body, arms, hands, legs, hats, hair, heads, cloaks). Content is something not missing in this game of TT. Speaking of the game itself, it's extremely simple and funny. While I think the bosses were slightly harder to make the thing more challenging. But it is understood that this game has been made to be accessible for all ages.

    Regarding the game quests, leaving aside the weak history, I do not have major reasons for complaint. But in the sub-quests, there is some lack of variety and it turns out to be a bit boring. Yes, just like all other LEGO games from TT, The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame has a local cooperative mode, but they could have implemented a dynamic Split-Screen to make life easier for gamers. The soundtrack is reasonable and suits the type of game. The camera, as usual, is clumsy in tight places and loadings are a bit long. In short, The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame could have been a better game, but the development seems to have been somewhat rushed. Those who are fed up with the old formula of the LEGO games of TT and who hope for news in this game will not find them here.

I know it was a budgetAs a big fan of the first game and the lego brand movies (I have seen them all), I was disappointed to play this game. I know it was a budget title going by the price of the game but the game feels phoned in as if the developers used the "open" aspect of the game to pad out the lack of content. Also for 2019 the game looks quite a few years old and doesn't feel polished but really janky.

    I thought the story would be fun but they told it in a really lazy way and it wasn't as fun or funny as the movie (also they missed a big chunk of the end of the movie??). Overall I was very, very disappointed.
