Xbox 360 issueI got this game for Christmas 2015, as well as the doctor who level pack. I beat all the story mode levels a few weeks later, and I loved the game. right now, my collection is staring at me from the TV stand. I do have one issue. I've watched YouTube videos of people playing the game and they've got "extra" adventure worlds. I thought the levels from level packs and adventure worlds such as Doctor Who and Jurassic world would unlock when you have the characters, but no such luck. I then proceeded to beat all the story levels, hoping it would change the issue. still, no I'm now out of gold bricks and cannot fully upgrade some vehicles. trying to enter worlds just say, an update is required to access this content. My Xbox 360 is fully upgraded to the newest update. I would be very happy and have this rating at 5 "bricks" if you did one of the following:
- add an Xbox update that gives me adventure worlds and levels from packs
remake the game for Xbox 360 as a new disk with adventure worlds. I would like it if you just sold the disk, or even allow a trade-out where we could give you our old faulty disks and get a new good one free of charge. I'm saying we and our because my friends are experiencing this as well.
Please fix this! me and my friends all love this game but are disappointed at the fact that we can't visit worlds except for DC, LOTR and Lego movie.

What a great Game!At first I was very leery of buying this for the X-Box 360 do to many early reports of it freezing up and not being playable.
That wasn't an issue at all if you follow the instructions that clearly say to make sure you're connected to the internet to receive the proper updates.
I got the system on sale, and at 59.99 it was a great buy. That price allowed me to buy some level packs and fun packs to go with it. My son and I had a great time playing and I like how you need to interact with the Portal to complete the levels.
The only issue I have with it is I wish the Portal was wireless. With kids running around I foresee the Portal or X-Box taking a beating.

An Imaginative ExperienceAs I sat down to write this review for Lego Dimensions, I at first felt it nessecary to tell the audience that I am a college student, who purchased the game prior to entering college and took it with me as a stress reliever and pastime
As with all my reviews, I will write this review with a summary of my thoughts, the pro section, and the con section. At the end I will also be talking about the ‘team’ and ‘fun’ packs that are associated with this, and my recommendations to the game. That said, let us begin.
Lego Dimensions is a game that, as a young adult, kept my interest and was genuinely fun to play. The game is very creative in the puzzle mechanics and overall storyline. The game also has a unique attention to detail of each storyline that many games often lack, making ‘fanboys’ such as myself very pleased with the levels. That said, the game does an above standard job with making sure those with limited knowledge of the universes the game entails do not need to go and research these universes in order to play the levels. The game, however, painfully reminds the player that they are playing a ‘toy to life’ game, and at times is frustrating to completionists with limited incomes who are unable to buy the extra additions. I overall recommend the game to parents with some income to purchase at least 50 dollars of add on packs to enhance your child’s experience.
The first pro of the game, and perhaps the most important one, is that the game is very fun to play. Many of the youth of this generation are used to ‘grinding’ through games, not really having fun and more so playing the game to waste time. This game, however, constantly engages the player, keeping them focused on what is happening and providing a fun atmosphere to learn. The keystones in particular are very fun to use, specifically the ‘seek’ keystone, which allows the player to summon elements from other dimensions, which often times in very amusing (such as blasting down Lord Vortech with the MechaDragon from Ninjago, or Batman’s Nightwing). The game’s atmosphere is also a contributing factor to this, being very fun and happy like many other Lego Video Games.
Another important aspect of the game I personally found very entrancing is the puzzle mechanics. Going into the game, I did not realize it would be a game that required me to move characters on the toypad. However, that ended up being the case. During gameplay, a player activates ‘keystones’ to solve a puzzle, these being Teleport (opens 3 portals to move to), Paint (to match a picture on the screen), Elemental (use Fire, Water, Electricity or Earth), Growth (shrink or grow) and Seek (summon elements from other dimensions to help you). These puzzles all require the player to move characters on the toypad to a certain position to use these keystones, keeping the player always interactive with what is happening on screen. These puzzles are integrated into elements of the level, such as having to use Paint to activate a loud speaker to blow away cars blocking your path. These mechanics are beautifully well done.
The third pro of the game, and one that is more important to fanboys rather than parents, is the game has a unique attention to detail. In every level, you play through a certain world, beginning with the Wizard of Oz, then onto the Simpsons, then to Ninjago, etc. Each level, however, is very pleasing to those who have seen the particular elements from the game. In the Portal 2 level, for example, those who have played either Portal game will see recognizable elements, and even lines taken from the games that mesh in with the scenery. One of my favorites was, as Wheatly tries to lead you to safety, you pass the three turrets practicing for the Turret Opera, with the exact movements and song playing. The rat dens are also very accurate. Another example would be in the Doctor Who level, there are several cases of ‘Bad Wolf’ being painted on blue walls, which to those who know the series is a great Easter Egg. The game is full of these eggs, and I found myself laughing at a few references.
That being said, and this being important to parent buyers, the game does a fantastic job at making sure the player does not need to know the source material to understand the level. For many young children who have not played Portal, the level is very straightforward: find the cake. The puzzles are slightly tailored to the actual puzzles in Portal, but the game doesn’t require the player to go ‘okay I know a portal must go here and momentum is conserved between portals…’; every mechanic in levels are centered around the toypad puzzles you have already done. This, to me, is especially important, as prior to playing the game I had not seen Ghostbusters. When playing the level, however, you again have a simple task: rescue the Ghostbusters from Zod. The rest of the level is puzzle solving. Any inappropriate elements are removed, meaning young children can also play this game, though I do recommend it for children 10 and up.
The last pro that I will mention is that the game is very expansive, meaning that the game lasts much more than just the campaign. With just the starter pack, after completing the game the child can explore 3 large dimensions that each have puzzles and mechanics to collect gold bricks (which they use to upgrade their vehicles). Buying just one more add on pack for 11 dollars can open up ANOTHER dimension to explore, meaning that one can easily continue to grow and build their collection even after completing the story.
That being said, the game does have some very noticeable cons. The first that I must bring up is the ‘toy to life’ concept of the game. The characters included in the starter pack have only the basic abilities needed to complete the game, with the Batmobile able to be upgraded to also complete tow bar and sonic puzzles. However, the game, like other Lego Games, has a minikit system that, upon getting all 10, unlocks a little game in a dimension. The problem with this, however, is that one can only attain 1-2 per level with the base characters. Other minikits require having the player buy other packs to get other abilities, with some abilities being only unique to 1 character. This, to one with low disposable income or not wanting to spend another 100 dollars, is a huge turn off. To those who wish to complete levels, this also creates some frustration. Right off the bat, in the very first level, one cannot collect 3 minikits without having the Ghostbuster’s level pack, as normal characters can’t go through ghost swarms. This, to my personal gameplay, was a massive pain.
Another massive issue that I bring up with this game is the price point. The game itself is very fun and exciting, but the sheer price of almost 80 dollars for the game is too much. By comparison, I could buy Skylanders, several characters, and even level packs for the same amount, and have much more gameplay. While some can find the game on sale, for those who buy this game direct from Lego, the price is very difficult to cope with, requiring one to shell out almost a hundred dollars for the game. That, however, does not also include buying other packs, which are also still overpriced even with the September price drop of 30%. I have bought most of my packs on clearance, and I am very satisfied with paying 5 dollars for Wonder Woman or Slimer, and gaining almost 8 abilities the base characters do not have.
As promised, I have included this section to talk about some of the add-ons to the game. The game is designed to have the player purchase additional packs of characters htat have different abilities, such as diving underwater or using Atlantis pools. One of the largest issues with these packs, besides the aforementioned price point, is that many abilities overlap, can be found in upgraded vehicles or are too exclusive. Two of the most common side abilities are Gold and Silver lego blowup. While neither comes with the starter pack, these can be found in many vehicles and characters, with the list being almost 30 long. Other abilites, such as Atlantis Pool, are ONLY found in Aquaman. While some of these can be extremely fun (such as the Suspend Ghosts or Dive), they often times require one to have many characters. For an example, I personally have collected a total of 15 characters, and still do not have the Atlantis Pool or Spinjitzu ability. Pole Twirl, a rare ability only needed many 5 times in game, only is unique to Legolas or Sensei Wu, while almost 10 characters are able to use the dive ability.
That being said, however, I would also like to mention that many of the packs do include fun and inspiring builds, and every character has a unique personality that is conveyed well through dialogue. Each character also has lines when they enter certain vehicles or gadgets, such as the Doctor yelling ‘I prefer cars called Bessie that come with a Brigader!’ when entering the Batmobile (a reference to the 4th doctor). The characters also have a fun ‘collect them all’ feel, and let one amass many figures that, ordinarily, lego would never release. The variety is also stunning, from the Simpsons to Portal 2 to Ghostbusters, there is no shortage in characters.
If one would like to know my personal recommendations of the fun packs to buy, I recommend the following: Slimer (Ghostbusters), Jurassic World Team Pack (Jurassic World), Zane (Ninjago), Cyberman (Doctor Who), Ghostbusters Level Pack (Ghostbusters), and Unikitty (Lego Movie). These unlock most abilities and leave only Chi, Atlantis, Pole Vault, Drill and Spray abilities not unlocked (others can be unlocked through vehicle upgrading).
In short, I recommend this product to young adults and children. Thank you for your time, and I hope this lengthy review has helped you decide on whether or not to purchase this game.
