A video game with a difference, thatâ€™s the simplest way to define the LEGO Battles Ninjago. To start with, this video game is not based on a super-hero or action movie franchise. In fact it is quite different from most of the LEGO games.
In LEGO Battles Ninjago there is a martial arts sage named Sensei Wu who has a team of super-powered ninjas to help him defeat an army of evil skeletons led by Wu’s wicked brother, Lord Garmadon. The gaming is pretty simple and is targeting younger players. The players have to harvest resources, construct buildings and finally assign missions to their soldiers in each battle. One can first play as the ninja army and then the players can take the role of the skeletons.
The video game controls are pretty neat as well. However, I think there would have been better clarity if there was a distinction between tapping and swiping was a bit clearer. With the â€˜normalâ€™ difficulty level, one can definitely save its players with health pick-ups to keep the characters from dying. But there are winning tactics, so just be patient my friend!
What Parents Need to Know
For all parents, LEGO Battles Ninjago is not the same type of action-adventure video game like the popular LEGO games as LEGO Harry Potter, LEGO Star Wars, and LEGO Batman. The game is more like LEGO Battles DS game. But if you have a long road trip coming up then this video game would probably be a good time killer for your kids.
Thumbs Up: The game is absolutely great for kids looking to move into RTS type of gaming. With a bit of patience, a bit of planning and strategy and simple side scrolling, you are all set.
Thumbs Down: the graphics are a bit disappointing. Also the controls sometimes get confusing. The game could have been nice and smooth but now it has hiccups on the way.
