What Do Others Think About LEGO Dimensions?

This product looks like a big winner for the 2015 holiday season. Those who have tried it really think it's an innovative game, and love the variation and versatility. Here's the opinion of GhostRoboJr from YouTube:

"One of the cool parts about this portal is we actually have to build it, 'cause it's LEGO, and so, it doesn't just come in one piece. You actually get to build it, which I think is kind of a cool addition that, these mini figures and the vehicles are all, like, you can move them around, mess them up, play with them, and change them sometimes, even as the game has the vehicles change, which I think is a really cool touch. I've played the game a number of times, I really like it, so I'm excited to see, especially like, the portal integration, some of the different universes that haven't had dedicated LEGO games, like, it's really, really fun to see how they will interact, with each other."

In Summary

Kids of all ages will be wanting this game. This is sure to be one of the biggest hits when it comes to gift selections this year.
