By its presentation and early gameplay trailers, I assumed that the game would be quirky and light-hearted, and it certainly is, but what I didn't expect was how outrageously funny this game can be.

Adapted from the highly successful full-length theatrical release, the video game lets players step into the world of Emmet Brickowski, a completely ordinary LEGO minifigure swept into an extraordinary adventure to stop an evil tyrant bent on destroying the LEGO universe.
