A competent racing game, Lego 2K Drive Combines the frantic racing of a Sonic Team racing or Mario Kart racing with the fundamentals of a Lego game. I love how you can just straight up build anything you want and drive it in events and the world, I mean we are talking proper Wacky Racing levels of crazy builds. The racing is good and is very frantic, especially since it fills the screen with carnage and color but it does take some getting used to, the drifting is held the brake-down type affair and for me, I found that really tricky to pull off on tighter corners but it works. Outside of racing you get the whacky fun nature of Lego games with a huge variety of Mini games like bowling, picking up cows, flying around collecting items, and swimming with the dolphins, and honestly, it does a really good job of breaking up the racing and because you can still earn exp and level up, it gives you more freedom to play and level up how you want and takes a lot of stress and need to progress out of it. Let’s get into the hates now, I really did not like how the second to last event of a major championship or unlocking a new map would be this time-consuming and not fun Wave-based tower defend style game. You have to drive between 3 posts and run over all aliens or skeletons to stop them from blowing them up. The idea is simple but the actual playing of it is slow boring and not fun. I just didn’t get on with that or the general flow of progression in terms of racing. Driving around the world, building stuff, and finding the many Collectibles is the much better part and honestly better way to play the game. You also earn exp for just discovering events, points of interest, and areas so you are always progressing even if you are just driving around. Lego 2K Drive is not the most polished of driving games but it is a solid addition to the Lego universe and an absolute must for Lego fans young and old.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
