LEGO Universe gets 3 stars for its graphics. The game can provide some decent visuals and has an awesome stylistic approach to things with its LEGO based world, but often you can find things lackluster and a bit to cartoonish even for LEGOs. The designs of the “worlds” and the customization of the visuals of your character and the things you can make help to even things out in the graphics department in this LEGO Universe review.
This LEGO Universe review gives the gameplay NetDevil has produced 5 stars. This is the true bread and butter of the game. LEGO Universe starts you out exploring various different “worlds” doing little missions that teach you all the different aspects of the gameplay and accustoms you to the different weapons, villians, and money and blocks of the game.
As you are going through these beginning parts of the game you will be collecting your very own LEGO blocks along the way. This LEGO Universe review’s highest ranking point of interest are these blocks. Each player has their very own space where they can take the blocks they have earned and create unique things into their virtual LEGO world. Seeing what creative things you or others can come up with is one of the finest aspects of the game.
Odds and Ends
