Lego Minifigures Online is one of the many games developed based on the brand of the famous construction game. After many successes, such as Lego Batman, the developer Funcom (Age of Conan, Anarchy Online) this time has embarked into the task of adapting the brand to a massive multiplayer RPG. With a system adapted to young audiences, Lego Minifigures Online is such a success that everyone can enjoy the game.
An online game aimed at younger audiences
Lego Minifigures Online is a godsend for the brand fans, especially for those with a collector soul. It includes numerous Lego characters to unlock, looking for the various parts in the game world, which you will then have to assemble. In addition, you can pay to unlock the characters directly, but, fortunately, Lego Minifigures Online is designed to be free to enjoy without becoming frustrating.
Adapted for children, Lego Minifigures Online offers numerous well raised innovations. The game account has to be validated by a parent or tutor, who can also monitor how children are playing. The chat is constantly monitored to prevent abuse and even the names of the characters are controlled. You'll have to choose a nickname comprised of several words, sometimes with very funny outcomes!
Accessible and responsive gameplay
The choice for the Norwegian developer Funcom for this Lego MMORPG is unquestionably a safe bet. Their experience in this field results in an original and effective game. The classic recipe of the online role-playing games has been reduced to the simplest expression, with only two roles per character. The overall results might have been limited, except that Lego Minifigures Online has had the good idea of creating 3-character teams. At any time of combat, you can switch characters to take advantage of all its roles and create synergies between them. A great game idea that adapts to different ways of playing.
Only one thing is missing in Lego Minifigures Online: As with most Lego branded games, the aspect of building and creativity - the success feature of the bricks game - is completely hidden. You cannot build your own characters and scenery. The only possible interaction is to click the mouse for some pieces of the scenery to be automatically built. It is a shame to think what a real construction system could bring.
From a visual and sound standpoint, Lego Minifigures Online is perfect. The game features an impressive graphics engine and modern Lego aesthetic that turns it delicious. The scenery of the game is only comprised of bricks, which make up varied environments. The whole set is a real pleasure to see and the dubbing is simply excellent. Punctuated by jokes that have become their trademark, the voices of the characters will delight all audiences and will get you smiling more than once!
A unique MMORPG of its kind and the most effective
Lego Minifigures Online is an excellent game. Although the lack of real freedom of construction is very frustrating, the game system works very well and knows how to adapt itself, particularly to younger audiences. With a free model and few limitations, a game system that is simple to understand - but interesting to control - many characters to collect and, above all, a good atmosphere and scenery, Lego Minifigures Online starts up as mandatory.
