All You Need To Know About Lego Worlds

Who doesn’t like Lego? Obviously the developers knew the answer to this question and this is why they came up with this interesting new game where everything and anything is possible. Lego Worlds takes the player to a journey in medieval times where everything is made entirely from Lego. You have the freedom to build, paint, move, copy, paste and even destroy anything. The sky is the limit when it comes to Lego and what you can do with them.

Two games in one:

Lego Worlds is actually made up from 2 games that have different goals for the price of one. The first game allows the players to explore an infinite number of worlds on a spaceship. The players gets to travel whenever and wherever they like to look for gold bricks. The gold bricks are earned when you do missions and when find treasure chests. When you gain enough gold bricks you get to level up in the game which can give you more options of generating worlds or gaining more skill abilities. While the outcome of gaining these bricks is lovely but sometimes you can get bored doing the same activities over and over again.

The other part of the game is the most interesting part where you can easily copy and paste anything you find in the world that suits your imagination. You will get to use a 3D grab tool that will allow you to pick up everything you like to create a Lego replica or to save it for later. There is no trick here because anything and everything is made from Lego and can be easily copied.

The challenge:

Most of the time the purposes of the two games will not be related. Like when you find an interesting dungeon that is supposedly going to take you somewhere interesting in an adventure theme only to find out that there is nothing to stop you from reaching your destination. In some instances, there is no obstacle or wall to separate you from reaching your quest. This can make the game less challenging at times.

Impressive worlds:

There is nothing that could be repetitive about the graphics of this game. Everything you see will not be repeated. Just when you think that you’ve seen it all, the game will surprise you with a new world with interesting and new potential. The combination between factors is really impressive, where you can spend your time exploring a modern town that is surrounded by a spooky forest that is full of zombies and witches. There is no limit to creativity and the developers embraced this idea to the fullest.

There is however a problem with controlling this game. After sometime, building everything brick by brick can become really time consuming and tiring. This is why you need to learn tools like copy/paste which are not really easy to master. If you hit the wrong button, it will be real program. At the same time, aiming at your enemies is definitely an area for improvement. Although there are a lot of weapons available, there is no option available to make sure that you are aiming at the right spot. Your best bet is to keep on shooting and hope for the best.

The game is also subject to annoying glitches especially when you are deforming several things at once. This can be a little bit frustrating especially if you got caught up in the heat of the game and the amazing features offered. At the same time, if you are moving too fast or firing fiercely at your enemies, you might see that there is a bit of a visual lag that is quite obvious if you are moving through one of the interesting worlds in aircraft. In some cases, several world chunks wouldn’t fully load until you are right on top of them which can make the experience a little bit troublesome for enthusiastic players.

The verdict:

Lego Worlds is a fun game that allows the player to create just about everything. Keeping that in mind, the players might suffer from the terrible combat system and the hard to master controls that can make the experience less impressive. But despite that, it is always interesting to explore a new chunk of the creation code as it is always an inspiration of what you can do next.
