LEGO The Hobbit Review

The Desolation of LEGO Games

HIGH Seeing the films' dramatic scenes reenacted with LEGOs, as usual.

LOW Going from my Dark Souls binge to this shallow, lightweight fare.

WTF A LEGO game on PS4 and they still can't get it running higher than 30fps?

Lego Pirates of the Caribbean Review

Again for the Third Time

High Getting unstuck by realizing that I'm a goofus, rather than checking an FAQ and thinking: "How was I supposed to think of that?"

Low The overwhelming sense of déjà vu.

WTF Lego Davy Jones is adorable.

Lego Harry Potter: Years 1 - 4 Review

Casualis Perfectum!

HIGH: The two worlds here mesh wonderfully.

LOW: The spell-targeting can drive you batty.

WTF: "And the Lord said 'Collect-a-thons shall not get thee to Heaven.'"

Lego Harry Potter: Years 1 - 4

Game Description: LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 brings the action, adventure and fun of the first 4 stories in the Harry Potter catalog to the video game screen in the way only the LEGO franchise can. Featuring all your favorite characters and story environments, LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 lets players play as the wizard of their choice, combining them piece by piece as is only possible in the LEGO franchise of games. Play options include single player story mode, free-play and two-player co-op online and offline.

Lego Batman Review

Why so serious?

Lego Batman

HIGH Getting to be The Joker is probably a dream most comic fans have—Lego Batman allows you to cross it off your list of life goals.

LOW Being stuck in an area for half an hour, unsure of how to progress because the game's awful platforming mechanics had me convinced that the jump I knew I needed to make (and failed at multiple times) wasn't the correct one—and it turns out it was.

WTF Killer Moth? The Mad Hatter? They really scraped the bottom of the barrel for some of these villains.

Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures – Review

Read review of Lego Indiana Jones: The Original AdventuresI’ve always thought that George Lucas’s archeology professor turned whip-smackin’ adventurer would be an excellent videogame hero. Unfortunately, most makers of movie-based games that I’ve played assume that I want to “relive” the movie in the most literal way. Running from one cut-scene to another—all of which I’ve seen already in the theater—doesn’t appeal to me, especially when all I’m doing is hacking monsters up and pushing boxes. What I want is to play Indiana Jones the man, not Indiana Jones the franchise.  Thankfully, Lego Indiana Jones The Original Adventures lets me do just that.

Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures

Game Description: LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures takes the fun and creative construction of LEGO and combines it with the wits, daring and non-stop action from the original cinematic adventures that enthralled audiences everywhere (Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade). With a unique tongue-in-cheek take on the original adventures, LEGO Indiana Jones follows Dr. Jones escapades through the jungles of South America to the mountaintops of India. Fans can build, battle and brawl their way through their favorite cinematic moments, from Indy’s entanglements with snakes to his dashing boulder run.

Bionicle Heroes – Review

Read review of Bionicle HeroesWhat's happened to Traveler's Tales? Coming out of the relative obscurity of developing licensed games and children's entertainments, they produced Lego Star Wars, pulling off the dual miracle of making the best Star Wars and Lego game ever, all at the same time. So my hopes were pretty high when I found out that they were responsible for Bionicle Heroes. After all, it was Travelers' Tales back with Lego, what could possibly go wrong? Everything, it turns out.
