Greats for kids & dads alike.

Having watched the trailers and webisodes for weeks, now it's finally here. Assuming you've played previous Lego games before (Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Harry Potter etc) then you know the basics of the gameplay already - collect studs, solve puzzles, enjoy the humour and build stuff. The only crucial difference between this and prior games is that there is no two player or single player tag teaming two characters: everything is controlling a single character at a time.This doesn't make as much of a gameplay difference as you might think.
The graphics are a treat on the Wii U with superb voice acting and the classic Lego game humour is intact. My 6yo has had no problem playing through the first few levels unassisted, enjoying having the in game characters talking to him via the Wii U gamepad whilst he controls Chase McCain on the TV.
If you have a Wii U already this is a no brainer. If not but the Lego games are your thing, this Wii U exclusive (for the moment at least) adds to the case for buying one.
