From the quirky minif-igures to the insanely versatile construction bricks, Lego seems to have the perfected the formula for opening up creativity in fun and exciting ways. Lego Legacy: Heroes Unboxed takes that unique Lego flair and brings it to the world of strategic RPGs (role-playing games) with fun results. Players collect and train different mini-figures, putting together teams with a range of abilities and roles that work well against enemy squads. Players can upgrade the characters, their abilities, and their gear with experience and materials picked up in missions. It's a relatively standard formula, but it's done well and builds a strong framework that should feel instantly familiar to anyone that's played the genre.

While Lego Legacy: Heroes Unboxed is a solid strategy game on its own, its real appeal is how the game never takes itself seriously. There's just something fun about watching a guy in hot dog suit build an exploding Lego microwave to kick over to the opposing team. It's that tongue-in-cheek humor more so than anything else that'll keep players coming back. Which is a good thing for sure, because the game can start to get a bit repetitive after a while. There comes a point where progress is slowed to a snail's pace unless, and sometimes even when, you're willing to spend money at the in-game shop. This might be par for the course in many free-to-play games, but it still frustrating when the slapstick fun suddenly stalls out for a bit, leaving players go through the motions of repetitive grinding for progress.
