Since I never played the Lego titles until batman, I have never played the previus titles which included all the characters already in this game. There are no new characters BUT you can mix and match them in a way you could never do before. Make no mistake, to a long time fan of lego there may be little to nothing new here BUT if it's your first time with lego OR you enjoy Real Time Strategy RTS games, youll enjoy this one. All controls are flawless. The instructions MAY leave out a thing or two but nothing you wont figure out before tunrning in on next time... There are tons of missions and unlockables, goals to achieve and missions to complete. This will keep most people playing for quite some time. Tons of replayability and there is also local wireless which makes it all worth while. Local wireless Multiplayer requires each player have a cart for their DS, but up to three can battle together and it's well worth it. I buy probably a hundred games a year, so I'm very critical of games BUT, this one is one of the best (FAMILY FRIENDLY) VALUES game-time for dollar invested that I've seen this year. SO although there's nothing ground breaking-ly NEW in the series here so I'm told, there IS TONS of traditional LEgo and RTS enjoyment to be had and mixed in any manner you'd like. Wizards can fight pirates and anything else you can mismatch in your head. There are 6 LONG story lines and 90, that's ninty! levels, I mean come on guys! you beat that in one day and there's something wrong with ya!
Challenge may leave something to be desired for LEGO vETERANS (unlike me). All will enjoy it from very young children to adult (kids) like me. Find Lego Kits, special Gold or Blue Bricks, unlock creators concept artwork, complete conquests, ulnock heros, explore worlds... there's just SO much to do here...
I definately recommend it. Pirates, Castles, SPace Themes and more... all the Lego Series rolled into one (almost).
