  • Silly cutscenes are a hoot, Attractive, detailed backgrounds, It's always fun to smash bricks and collect studs
  • Collecting items and secret characters is still entertaining

Editors Didn't Like

  • Poor visual cues lead to aimlessness and frustration, Respawning enemies get in the way of solving puzzles, No online play, Large party size emphasizes dumb AI
  • Many levels feel small and constrained; combat animation can result in lots of friendly kills; "dueling" mechanic for unlocking new characters is poorly executed; generic hub world is a major step back from previous entries
