Lego Dimensions (2015) is like other Lego games but uses real Lego sets to unlock content like Skylanders. Although it’s not being updated any longer, its interactive cooperative brick format offers a novel way to play and access some unusual Lego content.

You need to purchase the Lego Dimensions Starter Set. This provides the peripheral that plugs into the console and reads the smart Lego bricks to unlock the content. The Starter Set comes with Lord of the Rings, Batman and The Lego Movie characters and adventures.

You can then purchase separate smaller Lego packs that provide further content. Each of these not only unlocks characters and a short 2-hour adventure but an open world for that franchise that offers a considerable amount of themed content:
  • Back to the Future
  • The Simpsons
  • Scooby-Doo!
  • Legends of Chima
  • The Wizard of Oz
  • Doctor Who
  • Ghostbusters
  • Midway Arcade
  • Adventure Time
  • Mission: Impossible
  • The A-Team
  • Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
  • Sonic the Hedgehog
  • Gremlins
  • E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial
  • Knight Rider
  • The Goonies
  • The Powerpuff Girls
  • Teen Titans Go!
  • Beetlejuice
  • Portal 2

This is an Adventure and Fighting game with Action and Traversal elements. You can play with 1 to 4 players in the same room, but you can’t play it online. You can play the main game with 2 players and the battle modes with 4 players.

You can play this game in the following styles:


Play Time: This game will take between 13 hours and 20 hours to complete. Although you can complete the main campaign Starter Pack story in around 13 hours, collecting everything in the campaign and exploring the themed open-worlds extends this beyond 20 hours. Add to this the multiplayer battles and this is longer still.

Adding the different TV and Comic Lego sets add a 2-hour adventure and an open world with at least 5 hours of things to collect. Again, this adds a themed battle arena for multiplayer fun.

Age RatingsAge Ratings

Content Rating

Rated PEGI 7 with violence in a child-friendly setting or context. The creatures or fantastical characters will not show any apparent harm or injury as a result of the violence depicted. The fantastical creatures will flinch upon being hit. If defeated, characters may fall apart into small LEGO pieces. One of the arcade mini games features a giant ape knocking down buildings.

Skill Level

9+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Still, it’s important for parents and guardians to ensure they understand in-game purchases and have spending limits set-up. There is some traversal, puzzle and platforming skill required. But also, to enjoy the game you need a strong connection to the brands and films it includes.
