    Let's begin with the following: I bought into the Minecraft Beta when it first hit PC, and after various attempts, could never get into it like those who do enjoy it. Lego Worlds, while being compared to Minecraft, is different enough that it's kept my interest and keeps me looking forward to it. While I rounded up to a 5, I may have given it a 4... Technically, it's far from perfect, but there's just too much fun to be had to really let the technical (and some blatant lack of instruction,) knock it down. Now, one of the things I didn't know or wasn't presented in a couple pre-release stories that you SHOULD BE AWARE OF: you do NOT start with a complement of all the Lego pieces. So, if you believe you're gonna fire it up and begin building, I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news. In fact, it's a very big time sink to start discovering all the various individual bricks and builds before hitting up the free build section of creating your own world. Keep this in mind. Really, this game can be broken down into several parts. To start, there's the exploration segment: you'll fly your ship to a World and explore the area. Each "biome" is chock full of goodies. For the younger crowd, this plays like much of the other Lego games. Punch things and collect studs while searching for gold bricks- some, like various other discoveries, will be found in chests, others will be earned by running various errands. Another aspect of the game is the collecting. Your explorer has a little collection gun that will copy various discoveries (think flora & fauna) to your inventory for use when you begin your own worlds. Copying these only adds them to your inventory, you'll still need to unlock them by purchasing it (one time pay with your collected studs,) before you can actually use them. You'll also earn other tools- a "copy" tool that you can use to copy large builds- that giant Sphinx that isn't a pre-existing piece can't be used with the collector, but can be copied, so you won't have to try & build one from scratch. You'll also have tools that remove terrain/ segments of the world for you to find hidden treasure chests, build tools that can reconstruct builds or individual brick by brick that you've collected. You'll also have little chase segments; to earn many of the individual bricks, as you wander the various worlds, a cutesie green "troublemaker" will occasionally pop out of the ground, carrying either a new brick to earn or a gold brick. Chase him down and tackle him, and he'll cough up the piece. Once you've tired of a particular biome, enter your spaceship and find a new one to explore. There are issues. Inventory can quickly become messy, even with the divisions they have. There's just soooo much Lego here, that it quickly becomes a chore to locate particular items you may need in a timely fashion. I play on PS4, perhaps it's something the Pro or a PC more easily handles, but there are times, especially once you start using vehicles, where you'll get to the end of the rendered biome, but need to wait while it renders the rest (this isn't a huge issue, but needs to be recognized). At one point, the game didn't create the new biomes for me to fly to after unlocking the medium sized biomes, which worked itself out after a restart. (Note that you'll have to tell the game to locate a new biome from the spaceship map, biomes won't just spontaneously show up). There been a few times that while using a tool or weapon, the game suddenly switches it to the collection tool and won't allow me to put it away or switch. (Rectified by the ultra-handy "parachute" option, which is there for if your character gets stuck in terrain- which is funny, because I've had to use it for the tool-failure more times than the one time I've gotten stuck on terrain). Also, the lantern will occasionally lose its glow, which is a huge negative if you're underground. (Rectified by zooming in, then out with the camera). While the game has quite a list of technical issues, these will hopefully be patched out over time: still, even if they aren't, the game really is one that will have you looking at the clock and wondering where the past 4-5 hours have gone. There is also multiplayer, both couch co-op and online, with perhaps the best feature being that you can share your created Worlds/biomes in the Lego Galaxy that others can visit (just make sure you set it that changes are NOT saved- ensuring you don't come back to multiple hours of planning and building, only to find it destroyed by visitors). While the lack of having the full Lego sets to play with out of the box may be frustrating to some; to others, the HUGE timesink involved in hunting down all the thousands of pieces may be too much, the fact remains that they have made the hunt FUN. The other bonus is just how different the game can be played. I've played with my 4 year old, who's just learning his "inner gamer" and has some experience with other Lego games. The basic running around and stud collecting is in his wheelhouse, and with me playing alongside him, none of the few fights were difficult. This base experience is great for the younger crowd, and one that can be expanded as the young ones get older and more comfortable with the advanced portions. (I'm currently hunting down as much as possible to let him have a large selection to build his own little world with). And, while that hunt is fun, and can still get a bit repetitive, where else could you get every (non-licensed) Lego piece, unlimited in number, for $30? The price alone, at half the cost of a regular release, is absolutely worth it. Even with the list of current issues, I wouldn't have been disappointed had it been a full priced release. There's just so much to explore, so much to do and see, that the list of glitches is easily overlooked, as none are game-breaking.

    To say it is like Minecraft but with actual Legos would not be wrong. However there are also quests, even if they aren't the best ones, as well as vehicles and structures to place, and if you complete the other characters' quests then you get the ability to change into those characters whenever you feel like changing. And that is simply the tip of the iceberg, just listing a handful of the unique weapons available would the pages. Overall, It's a lot of fun and my kids really love it. It is another fantastic entry from Travelers Tales to add to the their ever expanding Lego portfolio but this one adds new levels of creativity previously left unexplored. If you like Legos I think you should definitely give this a shot. If you get far enough into it I don't you will regret it.

    I love all of the LEGO games, but I wasn't sure if this one was for me because I am not really big on building things with LEGO as much as I enjoy the quests and adventures of the games. I looked at the trophy list and saw that there would be enough for me to do and the game's low price sealed the purchase. It turns out that the game is a lot of fun and well worth the money. There are a few flaws here and there that are still correctable (the game doesn't really give you enough instruction on what you are supposed to be doing and the galaxy map is much harder to understand than it should be), but all in all I would definitely recommend this game.

    It's not Mine Craft and that's why I like it. I'm not huge on the whole crafting thing, and I like just exploring and mindless fun. The game is well done for such a low price point. It has a short story which teaches you the basics but the rest is for you to figure out. The building tools work real well once you get the hang of it. My only issue and I'm not sure if it's a Tt or Playstation issue, but I've reported it. Even when doing an offline game, if you try to have a second player join that is a Sub account, it does not allow. Another Master account can join for couch coop but not Sub. This makes no sense and leaves my son's profile unable to join.

    Picked this game up for my 10 & 6 yr old girls. After about 15 minutes of learning the controls, they really started to enjoy it. It has some Minecraft elements to it, but since it's LEGO, it does feel more unique. It appears to be a game that should provide hours and hours of exploration, mission based game play, tons of unlockables and fun imaginative play. So far, I am happy with the purchase. Aside from the controls being a little tough to get used to at first, it seems like another fun LEGO title, just with a different but good twist to it.

    The kids and I were excited for this to come out and for only 29.99 sounded fantastic. Sadly the game to me doesn't run very well on PS4 constant frame rate drops. My kids like to play split screen which further amplifies the problem. Once in the game the controls are hard to use, the quests get bugged. I found myself searching for what to do over and over. With no real compass except collect more bricks, its kind of hard to see what to do. I love the idea and maybe they'll sort alot of this out in time, but for now wouldn't recommend.

    This Lego game has everything that a diehard Lego fan/ builder would want. You start off as an adventure and you can also go to the sandbox mode to build whatever you want with whatever environments you want as well as placing your characters, animals, vehicles, and props. Right now as a bonus- Lego is offering a Christmas World for free. Get it while you can.

    I bought this game for my almost 10 year old son, who has enjoyed other Lego titles in the past. From the bits I've watched, it was a very ambitious project to make this game. It held his interest for a few days, but ultimately fell to the side for more polished and interesting games. The game looks like it takes a lot of cues from MMO games, and Minecraft. If the price is right, it'll probably provide some amount of entertainment, but there are better games, and much better Lego games out there.
