LEGO Dimensions: Starter Pack (PS4)
About this deal
After building the LEGO portion of the gateway, it attaches to the electronic NFC reader base which fortunately has two 2x2 studded sections on each side to hold it in place. The final product looks even better in person than it does on the box. It has a very organic feel to it and the NFC readers do not look out of place at all. A lot of people, and I mean a lot, seem to see these as overpriced because they are looking at them as just Lego sets. They are not, they are part of a game too. If you're not going to play the game, then these sets are not for you. The price includes more than just the physical Lego because that is what the product is. There is no good judging a set while separating the various elements of the product and complaining that it is too much money for just one element of the set. That would be like me buying an Ikea bookshelf, and complaining that it is overpriced because it costs more than one shelf is worth. Like others have already said this review is way too gushing, and barely takes cost into account, which especially for TTL is a bigger factor than a typical game or Lego set review.

You barely mention the gameplay. How varied are the puzzles that require physically moving the pieces? How early do they become a tedium? How many hours of playtime does the game offer? Is it as short as the other Lego games (a handful of hours)?Play Alone or with a Friend. Players can let imagination guide their solo journey or have a friend join the adventure with co-operative, drop-in/drop-out play. Introducing the Supergirl from Krypton!" This article contains Exclusive or exclusive for a period of time Content. Nice, well-rounded review. I'm not much of a gamer so I had little interest in "toys-to-life" products before LEGO Dimensions was announced. However, it has been interesting to watch them evolve. LEGO Dimensions takes the physical interaction with the toys and toy pad farther than any other toys-to-life game before it, and it will be interesting to see how its competitors in this category respond.

This is an amazing review which I really enjoyed reading as I was leaning something new. It completely changed my mind about Lego Dimension.DanRSL, tantrum is an accurate description for a small rant based on unreasonable expectations of a review- cheshirecat missed the point of a review and did just that. expense halved - the increase to the price of a Lego set, or the increase to a TTL game results in an overall experience that is greater than the sum of its parts. To those of us who like the TTL and Lego convergence this is a no brainer. A TTL video game uses Near Field Communications (NFC) to read and write digital information to a figure. Most of the games that use this technology involve a "portal" or "gamepad" which can read the information on the figure and transfer it into the game; so one second a figure is just collecting dust on your shelf and the next you are running around new worlds with that character in a video game. It can be quite fun if done properly or extremely frustrating when the product doesn't meet expectations. I can't think of another toy brand that would lend itself better to a TTL game than LEGO and with TT Games, the people behind other amazing LEGO video games such as LEGO Harry Potter and LEGO Jurassic World, responsible for bringing these franchises to life there is little need for trepidation.
