The litlgeeks had a blast this weekend thanks to Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment and TT Games, who sent us a whole box of goodies, including The LEGO Ninjago Movie Videogame for the Nintendo Switch. Now, we opened the game not expecting it to be much different from the Playstation 4 version, and we were, at least for our eyes, entirely right!
What to Expect
If you read our other review on the PS4 version of the game, everything we said, holds true. We aren’t going to change any of it, because it is the same game. It looks and feels the same! I think load times might be a little longer in a few places, but we really didn’t see much difference. However, what we did notice, and what we are still noticing today. When you play The LEGO Ninjago Videogame for the Nintendo Switch, you can do something here that you can’t anywhere else…you can PLAY anywhere else! Take your Switch, and The LEGO Ninjago Movie Videogame with you wherever you go, and bash and collect bricks along the way! (don’t bash and drive!).
- Exceptional, movie realistic graphics, beautiful animations, if you saw it on the screen in the LEGO Ninjago movie, you will see it on screen in the game!
- TT Games introduces a rich and deep, brand spankin’ new combat system full of great combos and attacky goodness!
- The game starts you out in a tutorial dojo so you can learn all of it’s new neat tricks!
- Enemies that block force you to plan and adjust your attacks.
- Stud collecting is a little different this time. In previous LEGO titles, you had to collect studs on a per-level basis. Now, that lovely stud meter fills up and follows you throughout the game unlocking rewards and gold bricks!
- Just like in LEGO Dimensions, the LEGO Ninjago Movie Video Game packs arenas! 1-4 players can fight it out in brick bashing fun!
- Unlocking is still all the rage here, but you get what you unlock right away, without having to stud purchase!
- The litlgeeks love their Switch in all it’s forms, but the most fun is on the couch, with a big screen, and the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller!
The litlgeeks are still playing LEGO Ninjago The Video Game after a long weekend of unboxing, movie going, and game playing. They are still just scratching the surface though. The story mode is 8 chapters long and they are 2.5 chapters in, but battling and the dojos will keep them coming back and building and breaking for months. The litlgeeks give this stunning LEGO game, 2 thumbs up! And for the Switch version, it gets two thumbs up…on the road!!
