TO BOLDLY GO….WHERE NO MINIFIGURE HAS GONE BEFORE
LEGO Games Retrospective, looking back over the last decade and a bit of TT Games’ LEGO partnership, from the emergence of LEGO Star Wars through to the powerhouse that has been LEGO Dimensions and BEYOND.
Officially released in 2017, LEGO Worlds is a sandbox game that allows players to visit an endless galaxy of procedurally generated worlds.
Ranging from small through to massive, these square worlds contain multiple biomes to explore, from farmland themed Merry Meadows, to lava covered Wicked Wasteland, there are jungles and rainforests, medieval kingdoms, haunted woods, you name it, there’s an environment for all tastes, all created with the wonders of LEGO.
You play an unnamed minifigure who begins life as a generic spaceman with his busted up yet trusted spaceship. After working your way through the basic tutorial and fixing up your ship you’ve got the entire universe to enjoy. Your mission is simple, explore these strange new worlds, seek out new minifigures and new civilisations, to boldly go where no minifigure has gone before…wellll, except for the ones that already live there, that is…
Overall, LEGO Worlds is an ambitious entry into TT Games back catalogue, it’s takes inspiration from some of the first PC LEGO Creator games, throws in a lot of modern technology and ultimately opens up a universe of possibilities.
It’s a fantastic game, for the right audience.
I don’t think that this is game has as wide of an appeal as say LEGO Marvel and DC games. This is a LEGO game that requires time and effort to fully utilise and enjoy to the max and isn’t one to just jump in and out of when you want to enjoy a bit of mindless superheroing.
That being said, if you’re looking for something that allows to build full LEGO worlds with hundreds, if not thousands of possibilities then LEGO Worlds is very much the game for you.
