Everyone likes LEGO, right? Whether it’s fond memories of building your own unique creations as a child, or indulging in buying a fun licensed kit as an adult, you would be hard challenged to find someone that hasn’t enjoyed playing with it at some point. With the massive popularity of LEGO, it’s of little surprise that the LEGO video games have been as popular as they are.
With the November’s release of LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 looming large, now seems like a good time for Set The Tape to look back at the rest of the series and to pick out the top five LEGO games you need to check out.
5. LEGO Dimensions
LEGO Dimensions is an amazing game. The game combines dozens of LEGO universes to give you a game where you can play as Batman, The Doctor, Homer Simpson, and Harry Potter all at the same time.
However, the main downside of this game is the cost. Buying new characters and levels can be very expensive. If you can afford to do so, it easily delivers one of the best LEGO games around that is still expanding. What other game gives you the LEGO version or Red Dwarf and The Goonies?
4. LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham
Despite the name, the third entry in the Batman series is a Justice League game, bringing more characters into the series than ever before. It draws from both the Superman and Green Lantern mythos to deliver a game of galactic proportions that builds on the success of the previous entries in the series.
3. Lego Marvel Superheroes
The original LEGO Marvel Super Heroes game is still one of the best in the LEGO series. With a story that spans the whole Marvel universe and a roster of 150 characters, it gives us one of the best Marvel games around.
The hub world in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is fantastic, with an entire New York City to adventure around in. You can visit the Baxter Building, Xavier’s School, and Avengers Tower. You can fight against Green Goblin as Cyclops and Captain America. This game combines so many fantastic elements of the Marvel universe to deliver an enjoyable game.
