5.0 out of 5 stars Work at it 22 Feb 2011
By sheilk
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
We bought this game for our son who is totally addicted to Lego and creative games, did do Rob Blocks for a time but it got very abusive.
The monitoring on this game is good, they have recently added a new 'world' and there are plans for more as it grows.
Since we bought it the price has halved for the game.
The competitions on offer have been very good, the prizes over Christmas were very generous. My son did very well with some of the competitions and won prizes worth over £400 in total.
The flexibility of the game is immense, you can form little clubs of friends, you can have your creation made 'public' once it has been moderated. There are 4 worldwide servers, so you can leave on to join another.
We have found that sometimes the communication is a bit clunky, but they do seem to be heavily subscribed and this is a big venture.
So far our 15 year old has played on it regularly since January, and he keeps going back for more... you really do need to spend time on it to get anything out of the game, however, not good if there's homework beckoning.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great game for kids!! 22 Oct 2010
By A. Milne TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My little boys have been eagerly awaiting the release of LEGO Universe for months! Thank goodness it's finally arrived...!

LEGO Universe is a Massively Multiplayer Online Game. A terrible evil - the Maelstrom - is trying to destroy imagination and it's up to you, and the other players, to defeat it.

At the start of the game you are a basic minifigure. You have the option to customise yourself, name yourself and then you're off! You start off in a damaged spaceship which is the tutorial section before you hit the game proper. This introduces you to the Lego environment and how you interact with it. You can move around and interact using just the keyboard, or a mixture of keyboard and mouse if you prefer. The controls are pretty intuitive and all of us were up and running in very little time. Once you've mastered the controls you get to build yourself a rocket, (this is the mode of transport between the different worlds from now on), and escape from the spaceship, landing in Avant Gardens. This world furthers the tutorial with the introduction of enemies and missions, and is your route to Nimbus Station which is the gateway to all the other worlds.

There are four different factions in this game. Once you have completed a number of initial missions you are invited to choose the faction that you wish to join. This choice is irreversible. At this point it is probably worth noting that you have up to four minifigures to play the game with, so it is possible to have one of each faction if you wish. You can then go on to complete further missions to increase your level and gain more powers and abilities.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Game and Subscription is Totally Valid 6 Nov 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My Son loves this game, fantastic and very parent friendly too,

What people need to understand is that yes there is a monthly subscription but the reason for this is because its a massively multiplayer game, Thousands+ kids can play on-line all at the same time, and your creations in Lego are accessible by everyone else as you can access there's too, so Lego must use constant on-line servers hundreds of them constantly running and accessible to everyone all the time, and these servers are very expensive to run so that's why Lego charge for the subscription, lets not forget they are a business and so if the ran it for free the game dev costs wouldn't be covered simply by selling the game only, so i find it very unfair you parents are giving negative scores to the reviews based on something you haven't actually purchase???

if your unhappy paying a subscription then don't no one forces you, but the fact my son gets hours and hours of enjoyment, and not from a mind numbing games that encourage nothing but a game that encourages creativity and development, my child has quite clearly shown an interest in game development, so I have been trying to teach him some very basic Java and applets which he is very good at, and I feel games like this will easily help him develop level design and community based design.

anyone who wants to try a game like this but without the subscription fees should try Roblox its free to download and play, but also has a subscription model for those wishing to design levels, my son also loves that game too.

other games I would recommend is LittleBigPlanet, Viva Pinata and Banjo Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts all are great for Kids and Adults alike.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My sons 9 and 7 were on the Beta test for this for several months. I have to say that it is a fantastic game.

No one seems so far to have commented on the social side of the game which both my boys enjoyed. When they are chatting there is a defined dictionary of words (I believe intended to ensure good language) this had the added advantage that it works like auto text so that my younger son had no problem chatting to the friends he made online without spelling holding him back.

I think that the safety measure that Lego have implemented are excellent and that for a safe environment for young children to experience on-line games and chat you can't beat it. When the end of the beta test was announced they were very upset at the loss of their pets etc. However much as my son's loved it for the amount of time they are able to use the computer - sleep, school, football, playing with real lego etc (never mind any restrictions that as a parent I feel I ought to impose) there is no enough time in their days to justify the monthly subscription. If we could have pay as you go at a reasonable price we would be buying this in our house.

This product might as well be thrown in the bin, as the network necessary for Lego Universe no longer exists. The company didn't get enough paying players, so they closed it down. Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars Attention - subscription
The game was bought for a 9 years old without reading the reviews and realizing that after a month it needs a pricey subscription. That spoiled the joy of otherwise nice game.
