-The build quality on the Starter Set and the various sets is excellent. All the minifigs burst to life with personality, and the various vehicles look good with the small amount of blocks that they're working with. Lego aficionados will enjoy spending time building everything!
-All the franchises are well represented gameplay-wise, with their Adventure Worlds just dripping with fan service and easter eggs for players to find. The minifigs also have fun little secrets, such as when Wonder Woman begins flying. It's amazing.
-The story, for the most part, is a fun and campy adventure. Without spoiling too much (unlike a lot of the professional reviews D:), the mashups that take place between worlds are fantastic, and seeing the different characters in weird places always brought a smile to my face.
-The portal the game uses is unique in the Toys-to-Life subgenre in that it's meant to be interacted with. Once I got used to that concept, I had tons of fun frantically moving minifigs around while figuring out the game's myriad of puzzles. My favorite Portal ability was Locate, which made you have to look at the portal in order to see that you were going the right way. Also, it usually resulted in a fun cameo appearance. One in particular actually made me scream an obscenity in surprise! I won't say who or where, though. ;-)
-The gameplay is always fun and breezy; I never had to worry too much about dying, but that also meant I had time to figure out some of the game's tricky puzzles. Having not played a Lego game since Lego Star Wars II, it was surprising how much I found myself enjoying it.
-Some franchises are clearly better represented in the game than others. Some, like Portal and Doctor Who, are treated incredibly well, leading to some of the game's most interesting moments. Others, like The Simpsons, clearly suffer from the lack of access to original voice-over content. It was a real bummer to pop into Springfield and only hear clips from episodes I've seen dozens of times.
-Speaking of voice acting, it's a real mixed bag in here. The three main characters all do a good job in their cutscenes, and I can tell Gary Oldman was having a fun time doing all his lines as Lord Vortech. But some of the minifigs don't have fantastic line readings, such as Benny. It sounded like they had Charlie Day for about five minutes, and basically had him yell about spaceships the whole time.
-X-PO is the worst character. He's not funny, he's not clever, and the guy from Community who's playing his voice clearly does not care one bit about turning in anything resembling a decent performance. The game needs to pull a Destiny and replace him with Nolan North, stat.
-That price tag. It's crazy, from both a Lego collector and game player standpoint. I don't need to say too much more other than buy what you're happy with, and don't worry too much about what you missing. On the other hand, having the world littered with reminders of things you can't do because you don't have the right figures really hits hard. Know that if you got kids, prepare for the hard sell.
-The game can be a little buggy. I never ran into anything game breaking, but there's sometimes a bit of weirdness with collision detection and getting stuck in geometry. Usually these problems can be solved by removing the offending minifig from the base and putting it back on. I'm hoping that the developers give the game a patch or two to tighten things up.
-The levels included with the level packs are disappointing, only coming packed with about 30 minutes of extra gameplay. The Back to the Future level had clever moments as only Lego games do, but the $30 price tag for those jokes wasn't worth it. At least the Marty McFly minifig and DeLorean are great, though.
Overall, I found the game both charming and fun to play, and the fun moments that it pulls off are worth some of the hassles. The price tag is a huge barrier, but the unique and cool things that it does with the toys make it a worthwhile investment, especially if Tt Games sticks to its promise of only releasing one portal. If you love Lego, pop culture, and video games, then this is a easy buy for you.
Now here is the really bad part: It's terribly overpriced. I own every single lego licensed game ever made. What can I say? I love them. I was against Lego Dimensions from the start for a number of reasons. For example, in Lego Star Wars you don't have to physically buy Darth Vader. You can just unlock him. We all know that's not the case with this game. I'd have to buy him. That's not the worst part. The collectibles are mostly locked behind obstacles that cannot be conquered without buying a lot of extra characters. I'm only a third into the game and been to some of the worlds and I've seen the need to buy many different types of characters and vehicles (digger, jackhammer, electric, gold, silver, time travel, etc.) Want all the gold bricks or mini kits? Open up that wallet. I feel that the expansions are about twice as much as they should be. I just finished the Back to the future level in about 20 minutes. That's including cut scenes. Yes there is a tiny 'adventure world' and I did get an awful looking tiny delorean, very dumb hoverboard, and Marty minifig. I'd say that's worth a max of $15. A lot of the vehicles are cool though (mystery machine and batmobile for example). And the Scooby world is awesome.
Now to compare it to Disney Infinity 3.0 which is a much better game and here's why. You buy the much cheaper starter pack if you don't have the portal thing already. If you do, you can download it much cheaper (as I did because I don't care for clone wars stuff). Just the download gives hours and hours of stuff to do and build. Then I bought the rise against the empire playset for $25 ($35 reg price) which gave me two figures who can level up and have different powers, etc. Now keep in mind that the playset also gave me tons of toys to use in the toybox as well as a 4 to 5 hour fun campaign. I can download tons of free creations to play. I can build worlds and games. Granted, the quality varies but, there's so much choice. I find it hard to to believe that Lego, the most famous building toy in the world cannot include some sort of creation tools. Inifinity 3.0 also has toybox takeover and speedway. Both excellent. A bit steep at $20 but still a better value than you will find here. Now the one advantage that this has over Infinity is that I cannot play as Darth Vader in the Inside out world. You must have a character from that franchise to play in the level. Which is kinda dumb.
Overall I feel that Dimensions is great for certain kinds of people:
1. Extreme die hard lego fans.
2. Those of us with unlimited disposable incomes.
3. Those of us that aren't OCD about completion of collectibles.
4. Those that can wait for extreme sales and price drops.
As I said before, the game is fun and well made. But, if you don't already have many of the other lego games, I'd buy several of those for the same price before I'd buy this starter pack. You can easily get Lego Hobbit, Batman 3, Jurassic World, The movie, Lego Marvel for way less for example. You will have several full games, worlds to explore, thousands of collectibles to unlock, and more characters than you can imagine all included. And honestly a lot of the other lego games are just a lot more fun in my eyes. Keep in mind that these are all my opinions. At retail I find it impossible to recommend. Even on sale, it's still pretty hard to despite it's many merits. I regret having bought it and the two packs. I could have spent that $100 much much better.
UPDATE: It's not actually as bad as I had thought originally but, it's still pretty bad. You can 'hire a hero' which will cost 250,000 studs after the first few. Given that the characters are only available in previous wave AND there is only one multiplier brick (*2), this is a major pain but, a lot more fair than the way they had originally intended. Also, many of the vehicles can be upgraded to have same abilities as a lot of the characters (batmobile has sonic and mystery machine squirts water for example). Also, the starter pack itself has a lot of excellent levels and a lot that are not so stellar. It really was hit and miss for me where some were just outright painful where others were pure joy. I'm raising my rating a star. This is an excellent game overall but the pay walls keep it from being that way. I'm also basing the review on the fact that the developer has admitted the practice was unfair and did add a compromise along with the fact that major retailers are selling the fun packs for half price. Which is what they should have cost from the start.
It is, however, a very RICH universe and the game play is glitch free. The only real puzzle solving in these games is the moving around of toys on the dimension platform to access secluded areas during the onscreen game play...not really problem solving to me, but more of a obstacle or hassle. I feel like i have to say here that i race bikes and am a runner i'm not lazy... but when i turn on the xbox i am there to chill.
So with the Dimensions games I played... its not like any of the previous games had particularly challenging puzzles, but in the past i felt there was more variability. The Dimensions process i really found pretty boring and lacking in nearly any need for creative thinking.
I can see how children would love it. And would recommended it for a 8 year old.
