The Lego Movie Video Game 

 

"Everything is Awesome!" That phrase will bounce around in your brain after playing The Lego Movie Video Game on the 3DS/PS Vita. Why? Because you hear it after you beat each of the forty-five levels. You might wonder why the hand held version has three times the amount of levels in it than the home console version. Because they are much shorter.

Most levels in the hand held version of The Lego Movie Video Game can be beaten in a couple of minutes. Do not expect to get all ten of the challenges completed the first time through. Since some challenges are things like beat the entire level in sixty seconds. Which does not encourage exploration.

I have two issues with The Lego Movie Video Game. The first is the falling off somewhere. In this version of The Lego Movie Video Game you die. You have to do the entire level over again. The same thing happens when you lose all your hearts. The home console version of The Lego Movie Video Game takes away some studs and puts you back where you died/fell.

Why do I bring up those two issues? Because it makes The Lego Movie Video Game on the 3DS/Vita a lot harder. I expect more kids play The Lego Movie Video Game on the 3DS than the home consoles. So why make the hand held version so much harder? Why is it so much more frustrating to play?

The timer that runs in each of the levels kills the exploration nature of The Lego Movie Video Game. I constantly felt stressed to get things done as fast as possible. I felt rushed in each and every single level. It ruins the experience of what The Lego Movie Video Game should be on a hand held.

We break things, build things, punch, kick, and shoot the bad guys in The Lego Movie Video Game. Meaning a standard Lego game. Parents will need to help their children with The Lego Movie Video Game. It gets too hard in many levels - especially the vehicle ones.

The Lego Movie Video Game is funny in the cut scenes between the levels. The biggest positive out of The Lego Movie Video Game is it makes me want to go see the movie. I can not wait for the movie to be released for home viewing. I am very interested in it now.
