LEGO NINJAGO (PG)
DS, $49.95 ★★ Lego Ninjago is a game for kids that tries to do many things, but doesn’t do any very well. Some missions see players venturing out on quests, killing skeleton enemies they encounter. Others are based in villages, where players can build structures, upgrade their forces and defend against enemies. Controls are fiddly and the gameplay lacks depth and appeal. LEGO ninjas may be cute, but that’s not enough. Out today.
