LEGO Dimensions Review
An cross-dimensional good time!
The LEGO games, up until now, have been taking largely popular movie franchises and turning them into family friendly platformers. Travelers' Tales have been doing a stellar job at nearly every entry, whether you want to save the world as The Avengers, relive the Star Wars Saga, or even roam through Middle-earth as Frodo. LEGO Dimensions changes things up by mashing up various popular licenses, into a trans-dimensional adventure that will have you smiling from ear to ear.
It would be entirely too easy to dismiss LEGO Dimensions as yet another 'Toys-to-Life' game, but that would be doing it a great disservice. It's still very much a LEGO game, and those coming into LEGO Dimensions being familiar with past titles will fit right in here. But there is a lot that Travelers' Tales does with the game's Base for instance, that escalate it beyond its toy game alternatives.
LEGO Dimensions follows LEGO Movie's Wyldstyle, Gandalf and Batman (not the LEGO Movie one, although he does make an appearance) as they travel through dimensions with the objective to take down Lord Vortech. It's a crazy adventure that spans worlds you'd never expect to see like Doctor Who, Portal, and even The Simpsons.
The question is, do you shell out the $100 for the base game, and possibly more on many of the game's additional LEGO sets? Read on to find out.
