LEGO Dimensions Review


LEGO Dimension was probably one of our most anticipated games of the year, and why wouldn't it be. After all, who doesn't love LEGO, videogames and all the franchises that this title brings together?

With worlds such as The Simpson's, DC, Portal, The Wizard of Oz, Lord of the Rings, Scooby Doo and Ghostbusters, to name a few. It's hard not to be excited. There are bad points of course, for one there is no support for LEGO Star Wars, while buying all the packs will set you back a small fortune. But even still, it's LEGO and videogames combined and you even get to play around with the little figures thanks to the very clever gameplay mechanic that has you interacting with the physical portal - it's more than just a display stand, that's for sure.

There is so much to love about LEGO Dimensions, which is probably why we can't stop gushing about it in our review below. Have a watch and see if you feel the same and don't forget that you can order LEGO Dimensions, the fun, team and level packs from ShopTo.

There is no support for Star Wars and never will be , as Disney purchased the rights to the Star Wars franchise from George Lucas and they will only allow it on the Disney Infinity Franchise

Does look good but can see this as being an expensive sting in its tail...

joe - roughly how long does each purchased playset last? i.e. does it take more thanabout 1-2 hours to complete them? if so I probably wont buy it - if they off the same amount of content as about 1/2 of a real lego game then I may buy it

The level pack story is about 30mins-1hour though a lot more for collectibles. Also you get access to free roam for that franchise and can use abilities for collectibles in main game, oh and you get the Lego :)

So there is a main game? I thought it was like Disney with the playsets as the story. Or does it have a build ur own thing like di? You should stream playing it :) 85 a bit much if it's what I think it is. :)

It has a main campaign which goes through all the different franchises. It's really excellent. There is no build you own levels like disney, just freeplay for all the franchises you have figures for. Check out some of our coverage on YouTube or in the review. May stream if time permits :)

just watched the video, i like the reviews like this, better than just reading :) dont think i will get it tho, i feel the same as Dan, in prev lego games you got a 20+ hour game (to fully complete) with tonnes of characters with up to 8 abilities, now to complete everything it is 85 to begin with and pay walls for more content. it is like skylanders, in that you cant 100% without buying one of each type. this is why i prefer disney infinity, you have the user made levels and can make your own and when you buy the playset you get approx 8+ hours and only need 1 character to play it all. just seems this lego game is too expensive. if the starter was ~40 and the pack 5-7 each then maybe, think ill stick to infinity and the yearly lego games :)

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
