LEGO® Dimensions™ Adds Expansion Packs

Based on Blockbuster Franchises The Goonies, Harry Potter, and LEGO City

Highly Collectable Sloth, Hermione Granger and Chase McCain LEGO Minifigures Access Their Own Corresponding Adventure World and Unique Battle Arena

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced today the release of three new expansion packs for LEGO Dimensions, the LEGO toy and videogame hybrid.  The Goonies Level Pack, the Harry Potter Fun Pack and LEGO City Fun Pack will broaden the selection of the world’s most popular entertainment brands available for the game, allowing players to customize their experience by mixing and matching favorite characters and universes with full compatibility. LEGO minifigures included in the expansion packs come with special, golden Toy Tags which unlock a Battle Arena within the Free Play Adventure World of the corresponding entertainment brand.  Each Battle Arena has four different gameplay modes and comes with its own traps, special powers and interactive environments that make every battle arena unique.

The Goonies Level Pack includes a complete level of The Goonies gameplay where fans can play through the story of the iconic ‘80s film, helping Sloth and Chunk escape the Fratelli hideout and join the rest of the Goonies on their search for One Eyed Willy’s treasure. Players can use Sloth’s Super Strength to smash through walls or play as Chunk and use his infamous Truffle Shuffle. The rebuildable One-Eyed Willy’s Pirate Ship will sail on water and can also be built into the Fanged Fortune and the Inferno Cannon; while the rebuildable Skeleton Organ has Sonar Smash abilities and can also be built into the Skeleton Jukebox and Skele-Turkey for added gameplay capabilities.  Sloth provides access to a new The Goonies Battle Arena, and also the Adventure World where players can explore Mikey’s House, Inferno Cove and the Goon Docks. Once the level is complete, players will be able to replay through the game and other levels as any of the seven other Goonies characters to solve additional puzzles and access more collectibles in their journey through the LEGO multiverse.

Players can extend their wizarding adventures in LEGO Dimensions with the Harry Potter Fun Pack which includes a Hermione Granger LEGO minifigure. She can cast magical spells such as Wingardium Leviosa to levitate objects and Lumos to light up dark places. She also allows players to unlock the Harry Potter Battle Arena for a competitive match, along with the Adventure World where they can explore locations in Hogwarts, Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley. Players can build the 3-in-1 rideable Buckbeak the Hippogriff and use its Stomp Attack to smash Silver LEGO bricks, then rebuild it into the Giant Owl and the Fierce Falcon for additional in-game abilities.

Players can help stop crime in the LEGO Dimensions multiverse with the LEGO City Fun Pack featuring a Chase McCain LEGO minifigure.  Chase can become a Miner to break Silver LEGO bricks or a Fireman to use his Water Beam to put out fires. Gamers can use his LEGO City Detective Scanner to track down bad guys and change his disguise to unlock more abilities.  In the LEGO City Adventure World, there are new areas to explore like Blackwell’s moon base and the LEGO City Police Department.  Players can also compete with up to three of their friends in the LEGO City Battle Arena. Additionally, Chase’s 3-in-1 Police Helicopter can be built to fire off bolts, then rebuild it into the Police Hovercraft and Police Plane for additional in-game abilities.

Developed by TT Games and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, LEGO Dimensions is now available for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 computer entertainment systems, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and the Wii U system.

Syberia 3

Syberia 3

Syberia 3 – PS4

Syberia 3 showed up on the shores of MUReview.net this week and we got a chance to check it out.  We’d like to thank Microids for sending it to us for free for review.  Syberia 3 is, if you can believe it, the third game in the Syberia series.  The last game in the series, Syberia 2 was released in 2004, so it’s been a while.  This entry in the series, 3, was originally slated for release in 2010.  So after at least 7 years in the oven, let’s see how the series holds up!  MUReview performed this review against the Playstation 4 version of the game.

The Good

  • Engrossing, compelling story line.
  • Creative, fun, and engaging puzzles.
  • Solid graphics throughout the game, crisp, sharp.
  • Functional intuitive control scheme.
  • The color palate and tone of the visuals in the game capture the intended mood of each scene and environment very well.
  • When voice acting is good, it’s very, very good.

The Bad

  • The biggest hindrance for me in this game is that you begin the game with little to no reference to story prior to this game (Syberia, Syberia 2).  I had to dig and do my own research on the Internet.
  • The game does have it’s share of bugs.  Lip sync at times is off putting.  Frame rate problems, a few rough clicks / target areas. 
  • When voice acting is bad, it’s pretty rough.

The rest

Syberia 3 is just getting started for me.   I look forward to spending more time with it and getting through all of the games intricate puzzles.  That stated, this review encompasses general feel of the game, play-ability, surface features.  I avoided a full playthrough for a few reasons, spoiling the game for you chief among those reasons.  If I know what’s going to happen I have a hard time keeping my mouth shut!  That said, we have had a good time so far with Syberia 3 despite it’s hiccups and we think you will enjoy it too…so much so, that we are going to give away a copy! Keep reading!

Availability

Syberia 3 is out now for Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC.  What’s really cool though, is that MUReview will be giving a copy away for either Xbox One or PS4.  Check out the giveaway here!!
