    Son loves it

    My son's into Minecraft a bit, and we both love building Legos and some of the Lego games, so he bought this to try it out. Visually it's appealing, looks good. Graphics are rendered well, no screen tearing or lag or anything on the XB1S system we played it on. The controls take a bit of getting used to for building things with lego bricks, since we kept trying to want, simply automatically, to use the thumbstick to raise/lower the brick, but you have to use the shoulder buttons, not intuitive. But once you get the hang of things, it's pretty fluid. Their ways to copy and paste things make building a lot easier than it would be otherwise, since you can do a wall, then just copy it and then build it again, again, again, and you have the outside of a building already done with just the work going into the single build. You can "catch" lego pieces as well (reminds us of watching Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 during this). You can complete certain quests or tasks, and get more tools. We haven't delved that far into it yet, but the few hours we put in so far, it's been really enjoyable. This will be an awesome game for someone who loves being creative with Legos. If you're looking for something more along the lines of the "normal" Lego games, this isn't what you're going to want.

    As dictated by my 14-year-old, semi-sentient son, whose take on this game will be more accurate and applicable that my own, this game is better than other Lego games, primarily for the reason that you have a free-roam, totally open, destructible world, all qualities which are presently (perpetually?) highly prized by the 14-year-old focus group. As per the child in question, everything is made out of Lego bricks, even the special effects, whatever that means. Apparently one has the power to shape the Lego world in any way that is desired. It sports both split-screen multiplayer, as well as online, and after an estimated 30+ hours of game play (the boy would downgrade that estimate; I maintain the original), it still holds enough appeal that only after repeated attempts to communicate with the child by calling his name loudly within a ten-foot radius of his being, does he finally snap out of his Lego-induced stupor and acknowledge that there is actually another world -- one in which he has chores, school, etc. -- that requires his immediate attention. I suppose this might be summarized as mission accomplished for Lego, and a safe and entertaining purchase for a child with "a love for Lego games."

    Could be good game, but too many bugs.

    Some of the missions can be repetitive, but the kids like the game. There are multiple bugs with the game such as freezing and locking up. Those issues could be overlooked, but the biggest issue so far is with the saved data. After completing the game to the point where they could create their own worlds, two worlds were created and then the game froze and had to be restarted. When restarting, an error message was given stating that saved data could not be created. At this point the game restarted at the first world and the ship to visit other worlds could not be accessed. So far i cannot find any solution online other than restarting the game from the beginning (losing all progress). From what i read online, the company is working on a solution, but I would not recommend the game until the issues are fixed.

    A Fun, Open-World of Blocks

    I've played a bunch of LEGO games, from LEGO Marvel Super-Heroes to LEGO Dimensions, and while this shares some similarities with regards to controls and actions LEGO Worlds does stand apart from all the others. This open-world sandbox is meant to compete with the likes of Minecraft, letting you build and explore endless possibilities with familiar bricks and minifigures. The exploration aspect is certainly there. And you get cool tools to use to reform the landscape and paint objects. The building part can be a little awkward when you're constructing brick by brick, but overall this is a great game. And if you're a LEGO fan you'll find a lot to love about this new entry.

    Not your typical Lego game

    I was eager to play this game with my enjoyment of past LEGO games and the popularity of Minecraft, being that you can build many of your own structures and playsets. UNFORTUNATELY, I'm not enjoying it thus far, a few hours into gameplay as the guided intro drags on and on, plus the controls and navigation seem a little "complicated" for what should be a small children's game. I'm sure once you've spent a couple of days getting use to what menu you are supposed to open and exactly how to manipulate this "creativity tool" or that tool, then the game will be easier and more fun to "create", but for me... for now it's just not that fun to mess with. I should have rented it first!

    Better With Friends

    A great game. I played along side my son while we searched the game for new ways to build new Lego worlds. Here's the thing though, this game would be so much more fun if it had multiplayer. I understand the difficulties involved but, gaming is just better with your friends. My son was pretty bummed out because only 1 friend had the game to even play with him at all. Without that multiplayer element, he essentially was just playing by himself. In the end, it's a game he comes back to often but just doesn't play a lot. Hopefully this will change as it truly is a great game!

    Minecraft no, Lego fun, YES

    Not quite as structured a feel as Minecraft, but still a fun Lego game all the same. Where Minecraft seems to have a better opening game story?/free build explanation, Lego seems to be a bit more spotty on the "hand-holding" to get you started. That doesn't mean that it's not a fun Lego game to play though, as there is a seemingly endless gameplay of discovering something new. Controls, I feel, needed some more fine tuning, but don't detract from the overall experience too much. If Lego updates/DLC comes available in the future, this game could have near limitless potential.

    I have a set of boy girl twins that play just about every Lego game there is and this one is by far very different. I applaud the encouragement for creativity but the game just seems held back by some technical issues, random crashes, unstable frame rate and a few network difficulties making it a chore to be creative. My 7 year old twins don't seem to mind these minor issues and at 30$ its a game worth exploring if you are a fan of the Lego games or Lego's in general, with prefabricated play sets from past real life Lego sets there is much enjoyment to be had.

    This is a great game for anyone with a strong imagination! Unlike previous installments from the Lego series, Lego Worlds provides the player a whole host of tools to build their own landscapes, buildings, etc, as well as copy/paste existing structures in the game. Additionally, the linear quests that are built into the game are enjoyable and offer the player the ability to "level up" as they progress through the game. Split screen multi player is a bonus, too, as many modern games don't have this feature.

    This was a great game with a couple bumps along the way. First off, if you like Lego games then this is a must have! Hours of gameplay and co op fun. The flaws are all pretty much the same glitches that you will find in all TT Lego games and a lag that makes it unplayable at times. Most of the time you can fix it with a system reset or by deleting some worlds in your universe. This lag will get annoying but it is something you learn to accept, fix and keep playing!

    Good value for a LEGO video game

    My sons and I love TT LEGO video games, but this one is significantly different than other releases and may have missed the Minecraft craze that they appear to be targeting. The levels are fun and the ability to manipulate the landscape can be entertaining, but the controls are busy and figuring out what the objectives are in each level can be confusing for kids. Playing split screen is frustrating and it's really hard to build and see menus.

    About 6 hours in, definitely had the Lego charm and humor and I want to come back and play more. Feels like a lot of grinding to unlock and haven't gotten to custom builds yet to see the full sandbox approach. Mission/quest can feel repetitive, some frustrating camera work and learning curve on controls. Don't come in expecting the usual TT Lego story lines, this is definitely an open world sandbox that leaves it up to you what you do.

    Perhaps a bit of a different angle on a theme that has covered every major Hollywood production, occupation, and other viable concept imaginable, nearly ad nauseam. While borrowing this obviously this time from Minecraft, it keeps my kid in a sufficiently vegetative state until his "play timer" goes off that the control is pried from his sweaty hands. I suppose that's a "mission accomplished" for the good folks at LEGO.

    If your kid loves legos like mine and has a great imagination, then this game will be a big hit! Our 9 year old and 4 year old were able to play free style build with this game, and they didn't require much, if any help from us. The 4 year old did need help from his brother from time to time, but he was still able to do plenty of things on his own. Overall, great game and we were very pleased with this purchase.

    This game was released way to early. It is buggy, glitchy and crashes more than any game myself or kids play. Also due to the well known save game error (look it up) we have had to delete all saves and the game off of the hard drive and cloud and restart from the begining which really sucks as we had almost 100 gold bricks and many many worlds unlocked. We do enjoy playing the game when its working correct though.

    The price point is pretty low for a LEGO game and there is a lot to explore. But there are definitely issues. The game gets stuck nearly every day I play it, sometimes numerous times. Some of the quests seem unfinishable because there are few hints as to where the next step is. Without google, I doubt anyone would finish it. But, it's a good price for those content anyways. Maybe these will get patched.

    This is such a fun game to play as a family. There are a few spots in the game where it can get confusing for the little ones. But we typically play as a family so we are able to work around those speed bumps without issue. If your child loves minecraft get this game, they will not be disappointed.

    I first played this game during Steam Early Access where it really felt like a Lego Minecraft game. Now, it feels closer to Lego No Man's Sky with multiple smaller worlds that have a reasonable amount of things to do on them, and the game teaches you to transform them into what you want to make of them. Overall, not the greatest game of it's kind; but enjoyable non-the-less.

    For those who like the LEGO genre, this is the perfect game. It lacks many of the confusing objecives present in some older Lego games, and has a new sort of quest and collect items mindset, but still has a large, fun building aspect and side fighting parts. For anyone who played LEGO Universe or Lego Minifigures Online, this is the perfect game if you loved LU.
