Amazing Quality

The quality of this game impressed me. The game was pretty big, and has a bunch of galaxies to explore. It has open world, but also has a story to it. The only problems with it was that every time you change galaxies there is a loading screen that takes about two minutes to load. Also every time you enter the game there is a minute long cut scene that you cant skip. Otherwise, this game is totally worth the purchase!

Great messages

Emmet, Lucy, and the rest of the crew from The Lego Movie are back for an all-new big-screen adventure, and with it comes a brand-new video game as well. This time around, though, The Lego Movie 2 Videogame is an adventure that challenges you to tap into your inner Master Builder like never before. The gameplay ditches the usual linear mission-based action of previous Lego titles in favor of a more open-world style that gives players the freedom to follow their own path and build their own creations. The game still keeps a lot of the arcade action and platforming elements, but adds extra tools and skills that allow players to collect and manipulate Lego bricks and pieces, building their own custom content to help Emmet and his friends.

If you've played Lego Worlds before, you'll instantly recognize the new elements in The Lego Movie 2 Videogame. Players use a scanner to add Lego pieces and structures to their inventory, using studs collected through gameplay to unlock scanned items for use. It can take a little extra time to learn how to use the new tools and to navigate the build system, but it's not too complicated and winds up being a lot of fun. Along the way, there are characters scattered around with requests for players to complete. These missions range from simple collection quests to huge boss battles. The story moves along with cinematic cutscenes as players travel through the Systar System to other worlds. What makes this interesting is how the creative freedom and story elements still manage to fit together to give kids the chance to relive the events of the movie and to have their own unique experience at the same time. Instead of simply watching the story unfold, The Lego Movie 2 Videogame lets kids tap into their imagination as a part of the story and feel like a true Master Builder in the process.
