Is Everything Awesome? No. Not Quite.
The LEGO Movie was a highly humorous and charming romp featuring a world made up entirely of LEGO and an all-star cast. The movie recently released for home consumption, so it seemed like a sweet opportunity to check out the game based off of it. A great criticism regarding the LEGO series of video games is how stagnant with little in the way of big changes the games have become. While The LEGO Movie Videogame does try some new things, it is overall a very similar experience to what we've seen in the past. Does that make the game worth your LEGO studs (i.e. money)?
The LEGO Movie Videogame closely follows the plot of the movie, even showcasing a wide breadth of footage from the actual movie. It follows Emmet, a dimwitted construction worker who is selected as the special, tasked with saving the world from the sinister Lord Business. It's a task he is woefully and quite frankly hilariously inept and unprepared for. Along the way he meets up with a colorful cast of characters, both heroes and villains, all voiced by their movie counterparts.
|Just like in real life, Emmet's cup of coffee|
cost him a stud equivalent of $450.
|All in a day's job for Emmet.|
|It's not like there's anything to be afraid|
of by falling off this very narrow bridge!
|A very cool sequence within the game,|
some highway hijinks!
|Some people will do anything for attention.|
Seriously, pull-ups from that height?
|There's a snake in my boots!|
Wait a minute. Wrong movie!
|Emmet gets in touch with his inner cowboy.|
|Don't worry about careful jumps here, Batman.|
It's just a fiery, painful death below.
