Whenever a new Lego game is released, we’re always interested in it. GamesReviews.com likes to give you reviews of Lego games whenever possible. We got to check out the latest Lego game, Lego Bricktales, which was developed by a different company than the usual Lego games. Is Lego Bricktales any good? Will casual Lego fans enjoy it? Here is our review of Lego Bricktales for the Nintendo Switch!
Lego Bricktales looks like a regular Lego game but looks can be deceiving. In this Lego game, your mission is to help restore a small number of areas by helping people out. You do this by building objects to complete puzzles. Unlike the usual Lego games though, Lego Bricktales has you building things almost like you were building them in real life.
To build Lego objects, you are taken out of the regular gameplay and into a simulation-like area. Here you can either use the analog controls or the touch screen to piece objects together. The analog controls work better than the touch controls overall. There are tutorials at the beginning that try to teach you how to piece things together but as you progress in the game, things get very complicated quickly.
Building in Lego Bricktales is not easy. In fact, if you can’t build Lego objects in real life than you shouldn’t play Lego Bricktales. Regular Lego games are family friendly but Lego Bricktales is more for the Lego experts. If your kid is great at building in real life, they’ll be fine with this game. If they need help from you to build stuff, then they’ll need help in this game. Oh and if you both suck at building Lego objects, then stay away from this game!
Lego Bricktales is a game that was designed with Lego experts in mind. Its cute Lego graphics will deceive you into thinking this is the usual Lego experience. It isn’t that at all. If you love building Lego objects in real life, then you will likely enjoy this game. Everyone else should go play the games created by TT Games.
Lego Bricktales gets a 7.0 out of 10.
