LEGO video games – try them, they are fun!

Have you ever wanted to create huge battle-scenes with LEGO, but you just didn’t have enough minifigs? How about making a daring escape – like Indiana Jones – but felt like your LEGO Indy sets didn’t do it well enough? And what about wanting to rock out – LEGO style – but you didn’t feel like your LEGO creations achieved it? Then, try out a LEGO game! 😀

Many licensed LEGO themes have their own LEGO video game, and there are other non-licensed themed games as well, so you will likely find one you like. Below I will list some of them to give you a taste:

LEGO Indiana Jones video game: Created in 2008, LEGO Indiana Jones is a video game where you can play the three original Indiana Jones movies, LEGO style. Fight as Indy, Short Round, Sallah, and at least 55 more characters. In my opinion, this game is great. Of course, that was when I was a Indiana Jones freak. But it’s still cool. And now there is also a second version. You can learn more here: LEGO Indiana Jones Video Game

LEGO Star Wars video game: Made in 2007, LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga is a game where you play in all six of the Star Wars movies, (excluding Star Wars – The Clone Wars, which is a separate game). The characters are still using the old megaphone & red stud guns, but it’s still fun. You can learn more here: LEGO Star Wars Video Game

LEGO Rock Band video game: Made in 2009, LEGO Rock Band is a game where you rock it out, LEGO style. Play some famous songs, create your custom avatar, and rock out the universe with LEGO! You can learn more about this LEGO game here: LEGO Rock Band Video Game

LEGO Lord of the Rings video game: Not yet released, LEGO Lord of the Rings is a game where you join the Fellowship of the Ring and save Middle Earth. They are going to use the actor’s lines from the movies for the scenes, so the characters will actually talk! You can learn more about this highly anticipated game here: LEGO Lord of the Rings Video Game

There are many other LEGO games, including Harry Potter, Batman, Ninjago, Pirates of the Caribbean, and more. Luckily, they go on sale quickly, because they aren’t as long as other video games, but still, they are fun. You can buy them at the official LEGO Online Shop, and also on Amazon.com.

I suggest buying a LEGO video game for a non-portable system, because there’s more to them. Of course, I’ve never played a system other than a Nintendo or computer for LEGO games, so I’m not so sure.

How about you? Do you play LEGO video games? Which one is your favorite and why? And which one would you recommend to someone who never played before? Share your thoughts in the comment section below! 😉

Also, this is my second post, and I’m a KFOL (Kid-Fan-of-LEGO). You can read my first post here: LEGO Lord of the Rings Website New Features!

Happy video gaming!!! 😛

Lego Indiana Jones 2 is the best Lego video game EVER!!!!!!!

Maybe you could share why do you like that one the best. It would help readers who never checked it out before, or never played LEGO games before. 😉

For which system??? All of my LEGO Games are for the DS exept for one and I think the origanal is better but thats’s just my opinion.

Reply

legolotr June 22, 2012 at 11:32 AM

Are any of them for the computer?

Reply

nace10 June 22, 2012 at 11:36 AM

Yes. They are for many systems. 😉

Reply

legolotr June 22, 2012 at 12:29 PM

which ones?

Reply

nace10 June 22, 2012 at 1:14 PM

Well, it depends, for example, if I look at LEGO LOTR, it is for Wii, 3DS, Playstation, XBOX 360, and XBOX Live. But older games like the original Batman game, have systems like DS, Wii,
XBOX 360 Live, PS3, PSP, and Windows.

Nace, I’m sure there are going to be a lot of questions about the LEGO video games and how they work, which system they use, etc. This is your area of expertese as I don’t know much about LEGO video games. 😉

When you answer questions please keep in mind that sometimes people may not know anything about LEGO games, or even video games, but they are interested to learn after they read your article. So it is a good idea to respond to them in the most detailed way you can. If you don’t know the answer to a question, that is all right; as authors we don’t have to know everything. What I do is answer to the best of my ability and perhaps send the reader to a resource where they can learn more, or ask other readers to try to help as well, which can open up a nice discussion.

Listening to the questions may also prompt you to write another post with greater detail about a point that readers have been asking about. You are a great writer (especially considering your age) and this will give you an opportunity to get even better. Have fun! 🙂

Thanks for the tips!!! That gives me an idea. If I get at least ten people to say they want it, I will write shortish reviews on some LEGO Games I have. Just a warning, I have all my LEGO Games for the DS only exept I have Clone Wars on my DS & Windows. (I have not finished it on Windows.)

legolotr June 22, 2012 at 1:53 PM

Clone Wars is on Windows? I wish Lotr was

Reply

nace10 June 22, 2012 at 3:50 PM

Me too.

That’s a good idea. 😉

Please do not do that again. I have edited out most of your smilies. Smilies take up tremendous amount of CPU. They slow down the website. In addition I have to pay for CPU, and the more is used the more expensive it becomes. Thank you for your cooperation.

nace10 June 23, 2012 at 10:08 AM

Opps!!! Sorry, I didn’t know that!!!

Sorry.

Nace, I would suggest you stop abusing smilies as I will be forced to put your account under moderation. Smilies take up huge amount of CPU and slow down the website. In addition, I have to pay for it! The more is used the more I have to pay. Thank you for your cooperation.

Sorry, I got him started doing it.

Apology accepted. Thanks for your cooperation. Have fun! 😉

You can delete my smiles if you want.

Nace, it’s all right. I deleted or edited most of them already. Thanks for your cooperation! 😉

The Star Wars ones are my favorite. I love how they translated the saga into LEGO format. I spent many hours playing those games.
Side note: I was at TRU today. The had some Batman 2 poster on the counter asked if I wanted one. Of course I said yes.
