While it is fun, I must say this game was pretty badly made. There's always some kind of issue whether it's with insane pop-in or with AI which is completely useless to say the least. For example, in Free Play after one of the game's end missions you have to escape a construction site but half the objects don't generate for several minutes making it barely playable. Your AI friendos don't even make an attempt to attack the enemy and instead just stand around and die. Meanwhile the enemy AI either swarms you and does nothing or swarms your team AI and dies.
In terms of optimization this thing was terrible too. It took a while before this thing was even playable - It was locked at 1280x768 for crying out loud and you couldn't change it. And that isn't the only issue with the game's graphics, you have to make some major tweaks to make sure this game doesn't look blurry and fuzzy. Oh, and you can't access video options without actually starting the game.
Character balancing is all over the place. Unikitty would be the only worthwhile character to play as if it weren't for the fact that the feline can't activate switches or climb certain "girl sections" such as jump walls and climbing walls. Metalbeard is extremely overpowered too. You really don't need to use anyone else after you find him because he kills everything, but if you want to move faster then your other option is Bad Cop who is nearly game-breaking. His laser straight-up instakills everything it touches making him extremely deadly. The gameplay is weird too, every now and then you get these puzzle sections which are just broken or badly thought out. For example, the enemy AI on the hacking game is TERRIBLE. They never accurately predict where to move and end up moving from one end of the map to the other. There is a "brick matching" minigame which requires ninja-esque reaction time to complete without losing studs and even then you will probably still lose some due to how unresponsive the game is. Lastly, there's the useless dancing sections. They are BROKEN. Broken, broken, broken. The opening one set in a construction site is barely responsive and the second, and last one is completely broken - You can't do anything but lose the game. They still haven't fixed that after quite a long time either.
Lastly, this is a HUGE spoiler for The Lego Movie. It literally uses entire major scenes from The Lego Movie instead of real cutscenes and they're presented in a crappy aspect ratio which makes them barely watchable and therefore useless.
Play it with your kids, they'll like it. It's long enough for them to be able to enjoy it but it's easy, has bad balancing, terrible optimization and bad puzzle design to match.
