Lego is an amazing franchise. It started out as a set of creative building blocks but the company has now moved to more prominent characters and franchises. For example, there is now the Lego Batman which showcases all of the Batman characters. There is also a Star Wars Lego which showcases all of the most popular Star Wars characters and space crafts.
Because of its popularity, a lot of game companies want to incorporate the LEGO theme into their games.
Today, I am going to talk about the Lego Dimensions Game for the Xbox One game console. Although this game was ported to a lot of different game consoles, I am going to be talking specifically about the Xbox One port of the game.
Anyway, the story of the game begins with Lord Vortech and his trusty robot companion, X-PO, landed on the planet called the “Foundation Prime”.
There, he sought to get all of the twelve foundation elements in order for him to merge all of the existing universes and so that he can rule them all.
These foundation elements are the Diamond Scarab, the One Ring, kryptonite, Metalbeard’s treasure chest, the Palantir, Master Chen’s staff, inanimate carbon rod, the PKE meter, the flux capacitor, the Midway Arcade’s gold token, the Aperture Science’s cake, and the Ruby Slippers.
Once all of the twelve foundation elements are found, he must then place them all in the Foundation Prime’s building in order for him to merge the multiverse.
X-PO was doubtful about Vortech’s plans and the latter wishes to banish X-PO into another dimension.
Unfortunately, due to numerous dimension shifts, Vortech’s body cannot withstand doing more dimension jumps and he accidentally opened thirteen new portals leading to different dimensions.
The popular characters that are present in their own universe, Frodo, Batman, Gandalf, Robin, Metalbeard, and Wyldstyle, were all teleported to different dimensions.
Batman, Gandalf, and Wyldstyle were all teleported to one dimension. They happened to find X-PO in that dimension and, in turn, the robot told the three about Vortech’s nefarious plan.
Vowing to stop the rule of Vortech, the three main characters joined forces to recruit other heroes to stop Vortech for good.
The Lego Dimensions’ gameplay is similar to that of the Skylanders in that when you purchase the game, you will also be given a USB “portal” and some mini figures as well.
This mini figures can then be placed on the USB portal and it will then summon that particular character on screen. You can then use this character to stop Vortech’s plans.
All of the characters come from famous franchises such as the Batman franchise, Lord of the Rings, and much more.
Do take note that all of the characters have their own unique abilities and all of them have a key role in some parts of the game.
Unlike the Skylanders game, the Lego Dimensions mini figures are all created using LEGO merchandise. This means that you can tweak the mini figures a little bit so that you can customize their features in the game.
When you buy the game, you will get the starter pack with items that I’ve mentioned earlier. But, you can also buy level packs that contain new levels as well as new mini figures too.
The Lego Dimensions is a fun game and is available on various game consoles (Nintendo Wii U, Playstation 4, Xbox One).
