[PS4] LEGO Worlds Review
Calling all LEGO fans! Traveller’s Tales and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment are back with a different type of LEGO game: an open world of procedurally generated planets made out entirely out of LEGO bricks! Come read our LEGO Worlds review to learn more about this game!
The game offers two modes: Single-Player mode and Multiplayer mode. In these modes, you can manipulate and populate the worlds as you see fit. You can also discover, build, create and play through each of the worlds.
Are you as nutty about the LEGO games as I am? I’ve played every single LEGO game ever released on PlayStation systems and have Platinumed about a dozen of them so far! The LEGO games are very fun and relaxing, and its a series I certainly love to play.
As for LEGO Worlds’ Single-Player mode, you can complete quests and level up to become the Master Builder. You have access to a ton of quests, and as you have probably guessed by now, there is a trophy for becoming the Master Builder. There are more than 100 bricks to earn from completing all the quests, and you can travel to other worlds once you have unlocked the bright orange spacecraft.
The pre-built worlds need a certain number of gold bricks for you to be able to unlock them. The first is unlocked at ten gold bricks, and then the next one neds 25 gold bricks and so on. You need a total of 80 gold bricks to unlock all available pre-built planets, and it’s easy enough as there are plenty of quests to find even on optional planets.
There is a lot of quests types. Some are the traditional fetch quests, some are paint quests, some require you to take pictures, while for others you’ll need to build some stuff. Quests can easily keep you busy and entertained for a long time if you want to complete every single one – especially since they can range from a few minutes to way more than that.
In LEGO Worlds your discovery tool is very important. You use it to point at anything within the environment, and when the beam turns green, you can hit the action button to discover it. You can discover vegetation, animals, creepy crawlies, people, and vehicles and more! There are thousands of items just begging to be discovered. And the more you discover, the more building items you have at your disposal – once you’ve spent some studs to make them available.
You can also ride on a multitude of vehicles such as bikes, boats, cars… you can even ride around on animals such as pigs and elephants! You can also have two pets follow you if you can tame them first. There is a whole lot of fun to be had besides exploring, building things and completing quests in both modes.
The only real complaint I have about the game is the camera. The camera seems to have a mind of its own, and it ends up getting in the way every now and then. While you do have the option to zoom in and out, it’s easier to just quit out and reselect the tile you were using and pick up where you left off rather than fiddle around with the camera.
There are 62 trophies in the game, and with a huge count like that, you can expect most of them to be Bronze trophies. There are only four Silver and one Gold trophy, but at least it has a Platinum right? And the best part is that it’s not a hard Platinum trophy! No trophies are missable, which is always great for a huge game like this.
I had a lot of fun with LEGO Worlds, and I look forward to seeing what the next game in the long-running LEGO series has to offer. There’s a ton of content in this latest release, so you’ll be spending a ton of hours playing in single or multiplayer every day for a long, long time!
