I suppose that that happens with all novelty things, but on a whole I think that the Lego Movie Games are a fantastic thing. Why? Haha. Because lets face it Ladies and Gents ... the Movie-Video Game Genre SUCKS. They are horrible, bad, boring, aggravating when they don’t follow the story-lines ... I mean… they are just POOP.
As if the graphics aren’t enough to support Lego on this rant…Why? OH Why do Movie Video Games try to use different voice actors when the Flim-Star declines? It’s cheap, and unfair to fans of both movies and video games. Come on… you’re combining two of our favorite entertainment genres ... and you can’t get some Hollywood hotshot to sit down and record a few voice-overs? Silly video game developers! We don’t want some random JOE-BLOW to be reciting movie lines--especially the heroes’ catch-phrases…
Mostly, I guess I’m just annoyed by how Movie games try to be taken seriously in the video game market, but because of shoddy graphics/ story line/ game play can’t be. Whereas Lego Film games rely on humor and understand that they are not going to be a dramatic extension of the film, and can be enjoyed for what they are. Just because you’re trying to make money doesn’t mean you need to make a POS.
So until the Movie-Game Genre can get it right. I'm up for LEGO EVERYTHING!
