When it comes to recent battle between LEGO Dimensions and Disney Infinity, two competing iterations of the toy to video game franchises, well, there was a pretty clear winner, as Disney threw in the towel on further versions of their game earlier this year. I’ll admit that I had some serious sadness about that – their toy models of familiar Marvel, Star Wars and Disney characters are absolutely phenomenal. Even if you’re not into the games, they sure look good displayed.
That being said, perhaps it shouldn’t have come as too much of a surprise that LEGO continues to roll with their own Dimensions games. They also bring familiar brands such as Back to the Future, Lord of the Rings, DC Comics and many more into a unique gaming environment where you can play both a larger story along with various levels designed for the specific franchises available. For gamers it’s a lot of fun, and for LEGO obsessives, of which there are more than a few, collecting the sets is pretty much mandatory. Well, now there’s a whole new series of bricks to amass.
We’ve reviewed the various LEGO games over the last few years here at Biff Bam Pop, and all of them have been highly recommended for the most part. The latest entry in the franchise, though, takes the games to a new level of fun, thanks in no small part to the outstanding intellectual property its based upon.

I’m a sucker for the LEGO video games. They’re simply fantastic fun to play, even when they wind up being a little harder than you anticipate.
When the company first started making their licensed video games for various platforms, they were a little simpler, without the big name voices from the film’s they were parodying – their were no Harrison Ford’s or Johnny Depp’s in the LEGO Star Wars and Pirates of the Caribbean games. As the LEGO franchise has increased in popularity, the budgets have gone up, at the voice work has included (most of) the casts from films like The LEGO Movie, the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit films, and the Jurassic Park films. In the fall of 2015, LEGO Dimensions brought together various franchises from across pop culture in a Skylanders/Disney Infinity type game that has been a huge success. However, missing from the line-up that includes Ghostbusters, Back to the Future, DC Comics, the Simpsons and even Doctor Who, were Disney’s Star Wars and Marvel characters. Not a huge surprise, mind you, since Disney Infinity has those moneymakers covered. Luckily, while SW and Marvel may not be in LEGO Dimensions, the LEGO/Warner/TT Games people still get to make standalone titles. We’ll see a Star Wars: The Force Awakens LEGO game later this summer’ in the meantime, LEGO Marvel’s Avengers is now in stores, continuing the fun we’ve all come to expect from these games.
