Lego Dimensions 

 

We purchased Lego Dimensions on the PS4 on Black Friday. We went up to sixty-five dollars and that is definitely too expensive for this toy to video game hybrid. A lot of Lego Dimensions feels like a sample of the various worlds. Lego Dimensions tries to hook families into buying all the different level worlds. Which makes Lego Dimensions a very expensive proposition.

When you start playing Lego Dimensions, or add anything new you need to connect it to the Internet. After that Lego Dimensions can be played offline. The initial download of Lego Dimensions was over six gigs. Massive, and a huge drain on Internet resources. I am disappointed in WB Games, and TT Games. They should have been supportive of the offline video game movement. They failed with Lego Dimensions.

The physical Lego portal is a pain to build in Lego Dimensions. Plus it is fragile, and breaks easily. Families also have to constantly swap characters on the portal in the game play of Lego Dimensions. Which means keeping the portal close, and going from the screen to the portal. Which means taking hits, missing things, and walking off ledges because your gaze is on the portal and not the television screen. Then there are lock-ups, glitches, and bugs.

Lego Dimensions is really strange in terms of game play. Some levels have saves in every room, and others only have them when you get to the level boss. The level worlds in Lego Dimensions are tiny. Here is another disappointment with Lego Dimensions. For the amount of money, Lego Dimensions is nowhere near worth it. If all the levels, characters, and packs were included in the one hundred dollar price then it might be.

Parts of Lego Dimensions can be fun. It is neat to see Back to the Future, Dr Who and more in Lego Dimensions. There are so many potential franchises that could be used in Lego Dimensions. I wish Lego Dimensions was not so over-priced, and lacking in content. Almost every other recent Lego video game contains more content than Lego Dimensions for a much better price.
