LEGO™ Movie Tie In Games: Is Everything Awesome?

Since 10 years ago, we have been getting LEGO™ Games that tie-in with famous movie franchises. Some make us laugh. Others make us cry. However, what is the current state of these games now in relation to their previous glory? Let's take a brief (Around 1200 words) history lesson to find out.

I've played through every Lego game with the exception of the Lego Movie Game. I can honestly say that none of them are terrible. Sure, some are better than others, just like any game series, but again, i've never finished one and thought it was terrible.

Since i haven't played the movie game i can't say whether or not EVERYTHING IS AWEFUUUUUUUUL, but it honestly wouldnt surprise me as it was a movie tie-in game that was timed to release around the time the movie released. As gamers we should all know by now that games like that are almost never good. I avoid them like the plague as i've been burned too many times in the past.

I bought and played the Lego Movie game because it was cheap on the X1. I had never watched the Lego Movie, so I didn't even know what I was getting myself into. I hadn't played a Lego game since Lego Rock Raiders on the PS1.

The Lego Movie Game is definitely awesome and so was the movie (which I watched halfway through playing the game). I am definitely open to more Lego games.

You should check out Marvel Superheroes. Its easily my favorite one, by far. Lego Batman 2 and 3 are also great. But you really cant go wrong with any of them.

Loved the Lego movie, wasn't too enamored with the Movie video game. Felt like a let down after the terrific Lego Marvel Superheroes.

Very much recommend Lego City Undercover on Wii U :)

kurruptor3107d ago

I pretty much have bought every Lego game since Marvel Super Heroes. They're one of the few games I can play with my 4 year old and he can even play on his own. Plus, I enjoy them myself. Even picked up some older ones (LOTR and Lego City Undercover).

Hmmmmm, I'll definitely take the Telltale Batman series. Tekken 6....whatever....

darthv721375d ago

Never played Styx or the Telltale games but I've heard good things. And lego games are always fun.

IamTylerDurden11374d ago

Another mediocre month. GwG has diminished since Gamepass.

TT Batman is always on sale for peanuts and this is the old one that most ppl have. Enemy Within is often on sale as well but at least it's newer. Would have been better. Styx is alright, but overall it's underwhelming.

SpaceRanger1375d ago

Unfortunately they’re still on a “meh” streak when it comes to what they’re offering for these monthly games. Hopefully it improves as they get closer to next gen. They have a whole year to improve.

alb18991374d ago

With gamepass there isn't need for this.

Imortus_san1374d ago

You seem to forget that Free Play days are for those that pay for gold, and they are always 2 weekends a month and some times 4 weekends a month, that's from 4 fixed games + 4 to 12 games in Free play days for people that pay Gold, that's better then anything the competition as.

Smokehouse1375d ago

Pass. Gamepass rendered these worthless anyway.

Lon3wolf1375d ago

Not when they can be removed from GP it did not, this way you can keep them.

I thought GWG stayed accessible on your account as long as you claimed them even if your sub expired.

shabz6661375d ago

Gwg becomes inaccessible after your xbl lapses. This is only for Xbox one games. The Xbox 360 games remain accessible even if your subscription lapses.

Lon3wolf1375d ago


Thanks for the clarification.

Smokehouse1375d ago

I had gamepass without live for a year and I didn’t feel like I missed anything. I just got gamepass ultimate because it was cheap but I’d much rather have gamepass than GWG. The quality isn’t even close.

They’ll probably just go away with Xboxlive and the only way to game online would be with game pass.

Italiano12345671375d ago

Always put shit x1 games most of the time. Do they think putting a good 360 game makes up for it. 🤦🏻

porkChop1374d ago

Styx is actually pretty fun if you like stealth games.
