I want to start this off by saying I have not watched The Lego Movie 1 or 2. I did not play the first Lego Movie game either so I went into this game knowing basically nothing. However, I do occasionally enjoy playing Lego games and I was in the mood to play a Lego game so I decided to pick it up.
The gameplay is like any other Lego game. You run around and do these very simple “puzzles.” I think calling them puzzles is probably an insult to real puzzles but I don’t know what else you would call them. They’re like baby puzzles.
Occasionally, there is combat but it’s like other Lego games where there is no punishment for death. You just respawn immediately so the game ended up being a good pallet cleanser. Just a good brain dead experience.
One of the aspects that I did enjoy with this game is the various worlds. There are over 10 different worlds and each world did feel unique. There was a space world, a world full of superheroes, Old Western Town, A jungle with some dinosaurs. The way I played the game, I sat down and played through 1 world per day. Every day did feel a little different.
Music/Sound Design/Voice Acting
The game does have voice acting, it’s alright and I’m happy to announce the game did have the song “Everything Is Awesome” which I’m also happy to say. I’m not sick of that song. I still enjoy listening to that song. It is kind of weird in 2019 hearing Lonely Island but whatever.
It’s a shorter experience and to beat the game, you do not have to go to every world. Altogether, the game was probably around 6-7 hours. If you do plan on picking it up at some point, I would recommend spacing it out.

It’s okay. I found it more tolerable than some other Lego games but it’s also been a while since I played a Lego. This ended up being the perfect time for me to play a Lego game.
