LEGO Universe Preview

Posted Mon, Oct 04, 2010 by borticus

Fans of the existing LEGO toys and video games are sure to fall in love all over again with this adorable franchise once they've played the MMOG version. In this hands-on preview, we'll cover some of the ups and downs of our time in the LEGO Universe beta and tell you why this kid-friendly title is sure to enchant gamers of all ages.

I can still vividly recall a countless number of my childhood's afternoons spent sitting on the floor of my bedroom surrounded by thousands of tiny plastic building blocks strewn about in untidy piles and stowed in bins, bags and boxes. I'd snap together wings, cockpits and laser guns and fly to the stars, or craft fearsome mechanical-looking dragons to do battle against my valiant miniature knights. Developed by NetDevil and published by Gazillion Games, it is obvious to me that LEGO Universe not only pays tribute to those childhood memories but seeks to create an entirely new set of them for an entirely new generation of kids from ages 3 to 103.
