Frenetic, funny, but often confusing action-puzzler.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Great fun to play together

The lego series of games are a big hit with my 4 year old, who happily replays them from start to finish many times over (so you do get value for money, especially on pre-owned copies of the game). Older children may not require assistance, but for my 4 year old, I would say he needs help with about 15-20% of the game, and of course he needs me to read out the in-game help that appears as little question marks near some of the puzzles. It's definitely a game that should be played together, or with supervision. In story mode, which is where you start, you only control a couple of characters and the amount of abilities each has is limited. This helps make the game easier for a smaller child to learn, with new characters and abilities introduced as they progress. The difficulty of the problems also increases as the game progresses. Once a level has been completed, you can replay the level in "free play" mode where other objectives are available - but also where children can explore and use their imaginations. The violence is limited to "cartoon" violence, with characters exploding into lego blocks when they get killed. Your own characters simply re-appear after they die, so there is no need to go back to a save point and replay parts of the game over and over. This is a big plus for smaller children, who would otherwise run out of patience!
