What is The Lego Movie Videogame?

The LEGO Movie Videogame is a film tie-in that closely follows the plot of the film. As the ever-so-average Emmett gets caught up in a crazy plan to save the LEGO world from the evil Lord Business, and his tube of Krazy Glue, what follows is a co-op adventure split over fifteen levels that emphasises teamwork - and is a barrel of laughs. Packed full of clips from the film, and with plenty of extra witty dialogue and jokes during the levels, this is a fantastic pick for any young fan of the film (and many older ones too!)

How do you play The Lego Movie Videogame?

Working together with your co-op partner (or with a computer controlled buddy if you're playing on your own), it's up to you to smash, crash, and rebuild your way through the game's many levels, playing as practically every major character from the film (and plenty who were only featured fleetingly), each of which has their own special power you can put to good use. From Bad Cops' laser, which can melt through gold, to Vitruvius' stick, which can be used to open secret passages, there's plenty of secrets waiting to be found for those who like to explore. Simple puzzles, which generally involve locating a switch or two to open a locked door, deactivating some lasers or building a ladder to a higher platform, help keep things interesting.

How easy is The Lego Movie Videogame to pick up and play?

Less platformer and more LEGO-y beat 'em up, the LEGO Movie follows a very similar path to previous games, and if your child can cope with the earlier games, they'll soon be at home here - perhaps even more so, as there's much less of a reading requirement, with pictures being displayed to tell you which character to switch to, etc. While figuring out what you have to do and where you have to go next may still be a step too far for the youngest of players, the game's generally forgiving nature means it should go down a treat with most kids. With unlimited lives, it's impossible to get things majorly wrong, which should help avoid any unwanted frustrations too.

Mature Content

Based on the fantastic kids film, the LEGO Movie Videogame contains little in the way of questionable content. There's no sex or swearing, and any violence is minimal, with the baddies you attack simply flashing when they take damage, before falling to pieces.
