Lego Dimensions expanded its content for series 2 by releasing three large Story Packs along with four Level Packs. Here, I'll focus on the Level Packs and give you a brief overview of what to expect. For more detail, be sure to click the links to my in-depth reviews.
Watching Lego Ethan Hunt hang on a rope and navigate through lasers is such a satisfying experience. The first Mission Impossible movie is carefully and faithfully reinterpreted in this Level Pack, making it a blast to play. Ethan Hunt is one handy dude, too, with a whole host of abilities at his disposal. I still frequently use him even after mastering his level and adventure world. Visually, the vehicles and adventure world aren't anything special but the world opens up new optional missions across multiple worlds thus expanding the value of the entire game. This is one Level Pack that you don't want to miss.Lego Dimensions: Mission Impossible Level Pack Review
The rainbow-inspired colour palette of Adventure Time works perfectly in cel-shaded Lego form. Packs that bring unique franchises to life in the Lego Dimensions universe are always something special. Jake and Finn go on a quest to find the elusive Enchiridion and the level closely mimics the events from the corresponding Adventure Time episode. Finn's capacity to swap weapons and use a host of abilities is very handy and the voice acting is full of funny one-liners. The adventure world looks awesome and is a trip to navigate but there's nothing new in terms of interactivity.Lego Dimensions: Adventure Time Level Pack Review
Sonic the Hedgehog
Another colourful series perfectly selected for a Lego interpretation is Sonic the Hedgehog. The visuals in the adventure world very closely match what you'd expect from any Sonic game and it's quite large to boot. All of your favourite Sonic characters can be found scattered around waiting for you to help them with a mission or just hang out for a quick chat (if Sonic doesn't embarrassingly start tapping his toe then fall asleep and start dreaming). Unfortunately, the level itself is awkward to play in multiple areas and the lack of any classic 2D stages makes the whole pack a little difficult to recommend.Lego Dimensions: Sonic the Hedgehog Level Pack Review
Along with Ghostbusters, here is yet another '80s movie in Lego form. Bringing the curious gang from the Goon Docks front and center, you can play as four of the main characters or just stick with the silly physical figurine of Sloth. The level is disappointingly short and only allows you to play through part of the movie with funny intro and ending videos included. Seeing as the subject matter isn't as unique as previous Level Packs, the visuals for both the level and adventure world get dull quickly.Lego Dimensions: The Goonies Level Pack Review
