A to Z of Gaming Me: L

Look, I like dinosaurs, ok? And Lego games. When you get to play as Lego Jeff Goldblum and a Lego Brachiosaur, why would I not instantly love the game?

Lego Jurassic World

I’ve posted about Lego Jurassic World previously, and I remember briefly mentioning it in our Round Up of Comic Con a long while back. I’ve completed the game 100% and loved every second of it.
Lego games are so commonplace now that generally each iteration has less and less to bring to the table. Despite this, I still love Lego games (on the whole – we don’t mention the Vita version of Lego Batman 2).

Lego Triassic Bark contains 4 of the Jurassic Park film plots – Fallen Kingdom hadn’t been released – and gives you a lot to play with in terms of content. Sure, a lot of the collectible characters are duplicates of others, but unlike Lego Lord of the Rings, you will find yourself using more than 3 of them to complete all the stories, puzzles and access all the content. Even the dinosaurs have use – the aforementioned Brachiosaurus is useful for breaking the ground, the T-Rex for pulling apart cages and rocks, the Velociraptors for climbing ledges.

There’s plenty to do and play with, and you can create your own characters and dinos if you fancy it. Of course, you end up replaying the levels over and over, but it isn’t as unforgiveable as LOTR, given that there are only 2 or 3 chase sequences with a backward facing camera.

In true Lego style, there are some hilarious moments throughout the game, particularly in Jurassic Park 2 with Amanda Kirby. Oh, and Lexy’s scream is used to break things.

I could profess my love for this game for a long time. It’s easily the best Lego game I’ve played, and the best Jurassic Park game I’ve played.

I urge all of you who love dinosaurs, Lego games or easy games to 100%, go and get a copy of Lego Thoracic Shark.

Picking my L game wasn’t difficult, but finding any honorable mentions has been. As you may be able to guess, I currently don’t have any Honorable Mentions, but I’d be keen to hear yours.

  1. I too love dinos and LEGO. I’ve had this in my backlog for quite a while but as soon as I finish LEGO The Force Awakens (I’m really behind), I think I will start this one up.
