Whilst it does have a few new tricks under its sleeve, You are in essence just getting the same Lego game again with a different cast. That’s fine for some and not for others. I personally am getting a bit fatigued with the series but this one kept my attention for a bit longer. Maybe its the world or the Disney cameo extras? I tell you what though it wasn’t the story or the cutscenes as to me they were a huge step back, Just flat and quiet even on action intense scenes. Could be just me but every cutscene I would just check my fone instead. Away from that it’s a Lego game and with that you get easy controls, Fun level variety and a lot of building, You just have to decide if you like the Parr family enough to jump in and collect bricks again?
