If you’re a fan of the blockbuster films; Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Marvel’s Avengers and Batman 3: Beyond Gotham, then this news might just bring you to uncontrollable tears of euphoria. Warner Bros. has created LEGO video games from your favourite movie franchises. Players can now relive the epic action from the blockbuster films in a way that only LEGO can offer, featuring all of the storylines, retold through the clever and witty LEGO video game series.
I think parents will be glad to know that the games are filled with edutainment for their kids, so much so, that they might just end up hogging the controller for themselves. For all non-gamers and casual gamers, this would be the perfect opportunity to get you started in the gaming world, so give it a go, but try not to get addicted.
Multiplayer functions are available, encouraging teamwork among players in order to complete various levels of the games. My brother is eight years old, and the age gap makes it hard for us to do things that interest both of us. Besides riding his bicycle with his friends he revels in playing video games on his PC. This would be the perfect bonding experience for my younger brother and I. Parents should not worry that the digitisation of play time takes away from their kids’ learning experience because the LEGO video games encourage learning through play and complement one-on-one time. The games’ inventors promise improved hand-eye coordination, dexterity and spatial intelligence as they navigate their way through the levels.
The game also features exclusive playable content that takes players on adventures between Star Wars: Episode VI: Return of the Jedi and Star Wars: The Force Awakens, providing additional insight about the new movie and its characters.
LEGO Marvel’s Avengers features characters and storylines from the critically acclaimed film Marvel’s The Avengers and the smash hit sequel Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, as well as playable content based on additional Marvel Studios blockbusters, including Marvel’s Captain America: The First Avenger, Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Play as earth’s mightiest heroes in their quest to save the world.
LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham the Caped Crusader joins forces with the superheroes of the DC Comics universe and blasts off to outer space to stop the evil Brainiac from destroying Earth. Using the power of the Lantern Rings, Brainiac shrinks worlds to add to his twisted collection of miniature cities from across the universe. Now the greatest super heroes and the most cunning villains must unite and journey to different Lantern Worlds to collect the Lantern Rings and stop Brainiac before it’s too late.
