Advantages: Fun simple game
Disadvantages: glitchy in places / can be a bit repetitive
Ok I admit it I'm a bit of a geek! I love these lego games, however I appreciate they are not to everyones taste.
All the lego games do follow a similar road, its a action packed puzzle based platform game with simple controls. Each character has a different skill & certain skills are required to get into hidden rooms/collectables.
The game follows through the locations and stories in the first 3 original movies, with 6 levels in each movie, giving a total of 18 main levels and a few hidden additional levels. You are also free to roam around the school between levels with hidden puzzles also.
You play through each level first using the characters from the movie given, then you can replay the levels with any character you want to collect everything. It is very much a completionist paradise! However, my OH says they are boring and repetitive (say him who can play for hours on Forza!).
The annoying bits, the camera is fixed position on the screen and there are a few glitchy parts where you get stuck, and the two player option, if you go too far apart you are quite likely to push the other person off a platform and inadvertently kill them!
For those people who like their XBOX gamer points, this is one of the easier ones, however time consuming, to reach the 1000 points
Summary: Completionists paradise!
