EDGE - - DISPATCHES PERSPECTIVE -

Warner Bros loves Lego Di­men­sions be­cause it’s pro­vided a route into the lu­cra­tive toys-to-life sec­tor. Yet it’s been of great ben­e­fit to the de­sign teams at TT Games, too. Rather than work out how its well-worn Lego-game tem­plate can be wo­ven around a new film li­cence, in Di­men­sions it need only hone in on how an IP’s defin­ing char­ac­ter­is­tics might best be used for a hand­ful of lev­els. The re­sult is a good deal more in­ven­tive and fo­cused. The main in­no­va­tion is ad­ver­sar­ial splitscreen mul­ti­player for up to four play­ers; we play a riff on Cap­ture The Flag where you buy and lay traps by col­lect­ing cur­rency strewn about the place. But the real al­lure lies in an­other year’s worth of TT Games play­fully min­ing the depths of the Warner Bros archives, throw­ing in the likes of Grem­lins and Mis­sion: Im­pos­si­ble along­side Harry Pot­ter.
