Is It Any Good?

Lego Minifigures Online is a campy, Lego-smashing good time. It starts easy but becomes more challenging as you move through the nine currently available worlds, each with specific requirements for entry. You have to be at a certain level, have completed prerequisite missions, and have a minimum number of characters to progress. This is where having a membership becomes appealing, because building minifigures is a slow process without one. It can be done, but you'll need to replay the same areas repeatedly to accomplish the task. It's unfortunate that nonpaying members will struggle to make it past the first two levels, unless they're willing to purchase real-world minifigure packs to help them progress. Grinding (replaying the same area over and over to earn more points and rewards) is less tedious when you have more worlds to do it in.

Although gameplay doesn't stray much from the attack-everything-in-sight approach, the change of scenery and enemies in each world keeps things fresh. Every foe has a strong personality, so you're bound to have favorites. Boss battles often require some strategy beyond tapping on your "fire" button as well. These fights are best enjoyed with a friend, even if it's one you just met in-game, because it's always useful to have some help when your health gets low. Overall, Lego Minifigures Online is an enjoyable way to spend time, especially for the tween set, and it's something you can happily enjoy as a family, especially if you're willing and able to pony up a few dollars to help get started.
