I've been following this game for a while, submitting to become a beta tester(in which I wasn't chosen), and keeping up with the current news about the upcoming game. Growing up with Legos, I have many collections of my own and have enjoyed playing some of the Lego video games like Lego Indiana Jones and Lego Star Wars. So this game will be one I definitely hope to play when it is released this year.
The game is a MMO(massively mulitplayer online game) which means you will be interacting with many other players online while you are adventuring. Lego Universe follows a storyline involving a great Maelstrom threatening to destroy the entire universe. Players join up with a group called Nexus Force to help defeat the evil that has come over the Lego Universe.
After watching some of the Lego Universe Beta videos of players already doing battle in the game, I recognized the gameplay as very similar to the other Lego video games and was impressed by the NPC(non-player character) interaction. The interface looks very kid-friendly and maximizes simplicity, but also will attract the attention of all players due to the lush color scheme. I also particularly liked the trailer for Lego Universe and have high hopes for the game becoming popular among all age groups.
While the wait is still long for the game's release, I feel as if Lego Universe is progressing very well and is keeping up with updating the players with the latest info on its advancement.
