LEGO games have been quite ‘the thing’ over the last few years and it was only a matter of time until a movie hit the theatres. Of course as with most movies of this genre a videogame was to be excepted. The game competes with bigger names such as the MARVEL and LOTR LEGO games and does fairly well.



Darker times are upon the world seeing Lord Business, the boogeyman by default, is trying to conquer the world by capturing his own device of mass destruction. As with all stories of the genre, he succeeds in taking the weapon by force but do not despair, the world still has one chance, namely Emmet. Emmet is an everyday LEGO guy, living his everyday LEGO life in his everyday LEGO house. Being cheerful by nature, he starts of the day with a good and healthy dose of smiling on his way to work as a builder. What he does not know is that this workday will not end just like any other day. Apparently Emmet is destined to save the world, as the prophecies have predicted. Our hero-to-be seems to be the master builder that can shut down the doomsday device. Only he can use the ‘Piece of Resistance’ to shutdown the device.
Sadly, Emmet needs training and lots of it. After meeting the mysterious Wildstyle, he plummets into his adventure to becoming ‘the Special’.

The story of The LEGO Movie Videogame follows the story of the movie but with a lot less details than the actual feature film. The game is filled with a decent amount of clips from the actual movie which makes it a more pleasant experience. As in the movie there are a lot of references to series like Wonder Woman, Batman and other feature films most of you will know. Sadly the story isn’t always that well flowing compared to the actual movie. Also it might be wisest to watch the movie first, if you wish to enjoy the story to its fullest and then after that it’s great to play through the game.



The LEGO Movie Videogame is the first title of the popular adventure games that offers you a world where everything is made out of LEGO bricks. This creates a totally different experience than with the other games in the franchise.

Because of this style change the world might look a bit less detailed as the other games in the series, but in reality a lot more detail and effort was put in to this game to create a world that consists solely out of LEGO.


Sound wise we are treated to the voices from the original film which make the experience that more authentic. The cast is a great one, which always adds up to the overall atmosphere of the game.

The music in the game is a fairly typical soundtrack that suits adventure games. It’s a decent soundtrack but it’s not one that is one of epic proportions.



As with the other games in the LEGO universe this one also follows the typical formula of having an overworld in which you can roam freely towards your missions. These missions are in separate levels which can be replayed at any time.

During the missions (and the overworld too) it is important to try and collect as many LEGO studs as possible seeing these will give you better scores as well as serve as your lives in case you die. When dying the game will just take a few of your studs and you’re good to go again. These studs can be earned by trashing everything in sight, which makes it fun to play co-op and try to wreck as much stuff in order to see who gets the highest amount of studs by the end of the level.
This isn’t your only objective throughout the missions of course, seeing you will have to complete certain puzzles, objectives and even fight bosses to reach the end of the levels.

During your playthrough of the fifteen levels, you’ll be able to control a lot of different LEGO characters and most have different abilities than others. Some can be used at will whilst others have to be used at specific spots in order to advance through the level, control devices and so on.


Mini games are used a lot more in this titles than in the other LEGO games and they are actually a very fun alternative to the regular play style these games usually offer. Whilst most of these games are fairly simple, they either allow you to enjoy a change of pace to relax or spice things up when needed to.

As usual, there are a lot of collectibles the game has to offer and a lot of replay value concerning the levels to try and find them all.


The LEGO Movie Videogame might be a tad different than the other games in the franchise, seeing they might lack the big names such as the LOTR, MARVEL, Harry Potter and many other franchises. Nonetheless the developers created a fun game that comes hand in hand with a feature film that is all about the LEGO universe. In short, a fun game for pretty much everyone.
