If you are a fan of LEGO games, then you are probably going to love this. With a plot loosely based around The Matrix, it features some fantastic sequences, like a high-speed pursuit on a futuristic bike. As Wyldstyle (the female Trinity-esque protagonist) jumps from one vehicle to another while being pursued by the bad guys, it uses LEGO's two character co-op format brilliantly. Matrix 2, eat your hat! Early on though, a lot of the 'action' does involve building and demolition in the construction world. It's a clear nod to the real-world LEGO and you even have to seek out the instructions for the builds. These are identical to the type of instruction leaflets packed with real boxes of LEGO, on of many nice little touches to the game. I haven't watched the movie yet, but it's likely it pretty much recreates most of the scenes from the movie, as previous LEGO movie-tie-ins have. This time of course, with it being LEGO's very own product and movie, they have free reign to go nuts, throwing everything at you like a bucketload of trademarked plastic bricks. It also continues the trend of featuring humorous dialogue and sight gags. It's probably the funniest of all the LEGO games, and quite possibly the best. You rush through plenty of different themed LEGO worlds in the multiverse, donning some nifty apparel, which changes from location to location. There are as usual, plenty of characters to unlock, or purchase in the game. It doesn't really scream originality, with the usual tasks of collecting many, many hidden items in an attempt to add replayability. It does pretty much what previous LEGO games have done before, but it does this very well, and is nicely graphically polished. Those who avoid LEGO games won't find much here to change their opinion. But fans will simply enjoy the ride. And the annoyingly catchy "Everything is Awesome" song will be rolling around your head for days after.
