Lego Dimensions Review – Brilliant but blocked

Gamers of all ages have been enjoying Traveller’s Tales’ Lego games for years now, but now they can finally play with real Lego bricks as a part of the game. With the runaway success of the toys-to-life trendsetter, Skylanders, it’s a mystery why it’s taken this long for the Lego games to jump into the genre.

Rather than focus on one IP, this new series is a mashup of multiple franchises and movie licenses. In the box, you’ll find dinky NFC-chipped Lego minifigs for Batman, Gandalf and WyldStyle. Together they must take on evil forces across dimensions to save the day by beating up goons, smashing up environments and holding the Circle button to rebuild odd yet useful tools. So far, so Lego, right? Continue reading Lego Dimensions Review – Brilliant but blocked

Lego Dimensions story trailer makes it hard to resist

Parents, do not let your children see this trailer! There’s no way they’ll not want a piece of Lego Dimensions after seeing this. And how are you going to play it if you have to share with the little blighters?

Today’s trailer gives us the biggest look yet at the story for Lego Dimensions, the new name in the toys-to-life genre that we’re already trading in our Skylanders and Disney Infinity tat for. The mind-boggling mashup of characters and worlds including Batman, Lord of the Rings, Back to the Future and The Wizard of Oz looks like the sort of toybox-inspired fun that’s going to be a blast to play. It’s not going to be cheap, but we’ve hunted down the best deals for preorders if you want to get involved at launch. You’ll save a small fortune compared to an impulse buy on the high street too.

Lego Dimensions and Christopher Lloyd threaten to destroy space time continuum

[UPDATE: We’ve just found some exceptionally cheap preorders for Lego Dimensions here.]

Great Scott, indeed! Today’s latest trailer shows Back to the Future’s Christopher Lloyd discovering the hidden portal delights of Lego Dimensions and we get another look at the mashup of famous characters threatening the space time continuum as multiple genres and licensed universes collide. Batman, Lord of the Rings (was that a Lego Balrog? OMFG!), Wizard of Oz, Back to the Future, Portal 2, Doctor Who, DC comics, The Simpsons and Jurassic World are all confirmed already.

With toys-to-life raking in some serious cash nowadays, we think this could well print money for Warner and Lego, and going by the success of The Lego Movie and Traveller’s Tales past lego games, this might just explode. Yes, parents, this is your worst nightmare fully realised.

Lego Dimensions: how the magic of Lego could dethrone Skylanders

Lego Dimensions has just been announced, finally confirming the rumours that Warner Bros Interactive were getting in on the toys-to-life genre that has flourished in recent years with the likes of Skylanders, Disney Infinity and more recently, Amiibos.

As adult gamers, we’re often quite cynical about this burgeoning genre, as it often seems like an exploitative cash grab designed to prey upon the pester power of kids on their parents. Or as we’ve seen with the Amiibos, honing in on your most loyal fans with toys that add very little to a gaming experience and even worse, releasing limited numbers of some of them, making fans snap them up even sooner, before the eBay merchants get them all. Worse yet, most of these toys add nothing to a game that couldn’t have just been DLC. Continue reading Lego Dimensions: how the magic of Lego could dethrone Skylanders

Lego Dimensions officially announced as Skylanders rival: check out the reveal trailer

Following a timely leak earlier today, Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment have officially announced Lego Dimensions (perhaps a little earlier than they intended).

It will function much like Skylanders or Disney Infinity, with players able to buy NFC-chipped official Minifigures and playsets that can transfer characters into a tie-in videogame via a LEGO Portal peripheral.

A familiar idea, but LEGO Dimensions is set to bring an entirely new… dimension… to the traditional NFC experience since we’ll actually be able to play with articulated minifigures that are compatible with the LEGO sets we already own, as opposed to just collecting static figurines. Not to mention mixing together characters from loads of famous franchises too.
