Recently we discussed and reviewed all the LEGO Dimensions sets including the LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack, Level Packs, Team Packs and Fun Packs (see: All LEGO Dimensions Packs – Video Reviews). But as you know, LEGO Dimensions also has a digital gaming aspect, and this is what we will look at today in detail. So let’s dive into LEGO Dimensions! 🙂
The LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack includes everything you need to start playing the game. It is available for every major home console system including: Nintendo Wii U, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Xbox 360. The most important item is the LEGO Dimensions Toy Pad, which is basically the link between the physical LEGO characters, vehicles, gadgets, and the digital game itself. All versions of the LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack are $99.99, and are available at various retailers and the LEGO Dimensions section of the Online LEGO Shop.
Besides the LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack, there are also many add-on packs. These are called LEGO Dimensions Level Packs, Team Packs and Fun Packs. They offer additional characters and gaming experiences. You can read more about them LEGO Dimensions Available Now – Full Guide. The important thing to remember that all these add-on packs are fully compatible with all versions of the LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack. Prices for the LEGO Dimensions add-on packs range between $14.99 and $29.99, and are also available at various retailers and the LEGO Dimensions section of the Online LEGO Shop.
In the video-player below I have included a playlist for you from JANGBRiCKS, featuring the gameplay that included from the LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack, as well as many of the add-on packs. You will see how amazingly advanced and fun this game is! The first video will show you what happens the very first time you turn on your LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack gaming experience, and the following videos delve into the different LEGO Dimensions worlds including Portal 2, The Wizard of Oz, The Simpsons, The LEGO Movie, LEGO Ninjago, Doctor Who, The Lord of the Rings, Back to the Future, Ghostbusters and more. You can use the drop-down menu in the upper left corner of the playlist to select gameplays.
As you can see, the game is very absorbing and quite interesting. I think gamers will really like the experience. One of my favorite aspects of LEGO Dimensions is that it includes and intertwines so many licenses and stories. It is like having access to, and being able to play, a whole bunch of different games, and even more will be added in the future. A lot of LEGO fans who are not into gaming say that they only care for the physical sets and minifigures from the LEGO Dimensions line, but it might actually be worth considering checking out the game as well. If you get only one LEGO game, this could very well be the one! 😀
All the LEGO Dimensions Starter Packs and add-on packs are available at the Online LEGO Shop, and you can use the current Double VIP Points promotion to pack up some savings, so this is a good time to get your starter pack, and even some add on packs. You can find them here: LEGO DIMENSIONS AT THE ONLINE LEGO SHOP
As an alternative, Amazon.com also got a really helpful dedicated section just for LEGO Dimensions that guides you through the process of starting with the game and finding all the packs that you want. All the currently available LEGO Dimensions packs are listed in this section, and you can also pre-order some of the future packs. Here is the direct link where you can find everything: LEGO DIMENSIONS SHOP ON AMAZON
