I won't spoil the rest of the game for you (of course if you do not mind spoilers, you can get a full game guide at http://www.gamefaqs.com/xbox360/722935-the-lego-movie-videogame/faqs/68687 that details the walkthrough of the entire game). Overall, personally I thought the game was a very fun and great tie-in to the movie. The levels and worlds feel like you are playing in an interactive version of Lego Movie, full of worlds, levels, cutscenes and voice acting that you would see in the movie. It even has a huge boss fight at the end where Emmet and Hello Kitty team up in their final showdown against Lord Business. I have seen some sources that seem to offer mixed reviews of the game, but I have seen movie game that are much worse than Lego Movie, but I am sure that Lego Movie will not appeal to everyone, though I am sure kids will love the game, though maybe not as much for older crowds.
+ Plays out much like the ovie
+ Good replay value. Like many lego based games, as you play through each storyline level, you will find that there are hidden objects and secret areas hidden throughout the levels and will definitely require revisits on Freeplay mode if you want to find them all.
+ Somewhat open worlds in Free Roam mode. The map size is not too big, but there plenty of things you can do in each world, such as stocking up on lego pieces that can be used to buy red bricks or unlocking new characters. Many of them even have hidden objects you can find and side missions you can do (for example, in Bricksburg one side mission has you finding cats around the city for a reg brick, and in Flatbrush Gulch there is a side mission where characters can help find and bring outlaws to justice).
+ Lots of cutscenes from the movie complete with voice acting and all from the movie.
+ Interesting characters you can play as too. My favorites are: Batman, Superman, Bad Cop, Green Lantarn, as well as the guy that can throw dynamites at things, but there are plenty of other ones available.
+ Minigames (especially the hacker terminal games, which pretty much play out much like Pacman).
Negative aspects about the game:
- The storymode is relatively short and linear. Though it is possible to stretch out the game to extend the gameplay
- Will probably appeal more to kids than adults. While I thought the game was pretty fun even though I am 32 years old, I am sure the game will not appeal to everyone, though I am sure kids will love it.
- Like many similar games, eventually, you do run out of things you can do and items to find and then there really isn't much left to do. Eventually you play through the storyline, complete the freeplay mode and complete all of the side missions in each world and then it is time to move on. On the positive note, the game can be stretched out so that you don't have to do everything in one setting.
- The game might seem to be too easy to some people. When your character dies, he/she just respawns right by where he died and it just subtracts some of your lego money.
Overall grade in my opinon: A
