Play OverviewPlay Overview

Lego 2K Drive (2023) is an open-world racing game made out of Lego. There are races, as you'd expect, but you can also freely explore each of the worlds, collect parts and upgrade your cars. It stands out for updating the popular Lego destruction and exploration found in games like Lego City Undercover and Lego Dimensions and creates a game that continues to grow over time.

This is a new team on Lego games, after a long run from TT Games. The focus is racing where you put your transforming vehicle to the test in a range of on and off-road terrain and open waters. Around the central racing, you can explore the worlds that lead you through a story or jump on quirky Lego minigames.

Along with the main story, you can collect and create your vehicles with over 1,000 bricks to find. This expands your racing options and adds the ability for land-based vehicles to transform into boats when over water. You can also meet Lego characters and take on missions for them, which further incentivises you to discover more of the environments.

The result is a fun and creative Lego game that appeals to younger players. The combination of exploration, destruction and multiplayer modes makes it great for families. Add to this the ability to construct your own vehicles from Lego bricks that determine both performance and aesthetics and you have a great package of brick-based fun.

Age RatingsAge Ratings

Content Rating

Rated PEGI 7 for non-realistic violence in a child-friendly setting or context. Players can drive into LEGO mini-figures, which include human-like characters as well as animals or hit them using power-ups such as rockets. However, these figures are not harmed. In some mini-games, such as those involving aliens and robots, smashing LEGO characters is the goal. However, all violence occurs within a comical context featuring LEGO figures. There are some 'spooky' areas featuring a Halloween theme. However, the areas are not particularly scary. Finally, there is some cheeky humour, such as the line "I like big nuggets and I cannot lie", but never any offensive or explicit language.
Users Interact: The game enables players to interact and communicate with each other, so may expose players to language usually associated with older rated games.

Rated for younger players in Australia. Rated General (G) for Very Mild Crude Humour, Very Mild Violence, Very Mild Coarse Language.

5+ 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.
