When a mysterious and powerful vortex suddenly appears in various LEGO® worlds, different characters from DC Comics, The Lord of the Rings and The LEGO® Movie are swept away. To save their friends, Batman, Gandalf and Wyldstyle bravely jump into the vortex and quickly find themselves fighting to save all of LEGO humanity.
A toys-to-life game that puts just as much emphasis on playing with the toys as playing the game
Unlike Disney Infinity, TT Games didn't create a universal art style for all of the brands. Scooby Doo's characters are cel-shaded, whereas the Lego Movie characters appear to be animated through stop motion. All of the worlds are beautifully rendered
Chris Pratt. Christopher Lloyd. Elizabeth Banks. Gary Oldman. Stephen Merchant. Most of the original voice actors from each brand reprise their roles and are quite funny. The music in each world is also authentic
Typical TT Games Lego gameplay (which is still fun after a decade of games) with the twist of moving characters on a portal to solve puzzles
The best Lego video game in quite some time is also the best toys-to-life game of the year
Lego Dimensions is the year's best toys-to-life game, injecting the buildable fun of Lego toys into a hilarious adventure that sees Batman fighting side-by-side with Gandalf, Doctor Who, Homer Simpson, Scooby Doo, Portal's Chell, the Ghostbusters, and dozens of other well-known characters. Developer TT Games has been making great Lego games for a decade, and this is one of the studio's finest adventures yet - but it costs an arm and a leg if you want to see it all.
One of Lego Dimensions' earliest missions asks the player to put the controller down, open up a box of Lego bricks, dump them onto the ground, and follow an onscreen instruction manual to build a play set consisting of more than 250 pieces. This is an odd request for a game to make, since the process takes roughly 10 to 15 minutes to complete, but it represents Lego Dimensions' hallmark feature: a functional toy component that is both fun and an integral part of the experience.
Rival toys-to-life games, Skylanders and Disney Infinity, look great on shelves and are highly collectible, but don't offer much in terms of real-world playability outside of the rare set of spinning wheels. Lego Dimensions' toys are meant to be played with, and like any Lego set, make the imagination run wild with building possibilities.
Throughout Lego Dimensions' entire adventure, TT Games keeps the toys' appeal in the forefront, pushing players to take a break from pressing buttons to assemble a new Lego contraption, tear apart a vehicle to rebuild it in a different way, or move a minifigure to different places on the portal to trigger something within the game. Players don't have to build anything if they don't want to (the game only reads the base, not the arrangement of pieces on top), but I thoroughly enjoyed all of the building challenges and found many of the designs to be ingenious, especially given how few pieces are used for the builds.
The game itself fits nicely into the lineage of Lego titles created by TT Games. If you've played any of these Lego titles, you know exactly what to expect from Lego Dimensions: plenty of fist-swinging to smash a Lego object into a sea of bricks, followed by holding down a button to rapidly reassemble the pieces into a different form. Puzzle solving is heavily sewn into all levels, and most characters play a different role in how these riddles are completed. Minikits and secret studs are hidden in every stage.

Let creativity be the guide to a building and gaming adventure - journey through unexpected worlds and team-up with unlikely allies on the quest to defeat the evil Lord Vortech. Play with different minifigures from different worlds together in one LEGO videogame, and use each other's vehicles and gadgets in a way never before possible. LEGO Bad Cop driving the DeLorean Time Machine...why not?! The LEGO® Ninjago Masters of Spinjitsu fighting alongside Wonder Woman...yes, please! Get ready to break the rules, because the only rule with LEGO Dimensions is that there are no rules.
The LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack is all players need to begin - build the base and embark on a fantastic quest. Included in the LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack:
Build the minifigure heroes and fire-up the game to start the experience, then follow the in-game build instructions to assemble the loose bricks into the LEGO Gateway, and place the structure on the LEGO Toy Pad. Expand the adventure by collecting more minifigures, vehicles, gadgets, and new levels with the purchase of three different types of expansion packs. Use whatever minifigure with whichever vehicle or gadget - go ahead... break the rules!
