Our Thoughts: LEGO Bricktales is a gorgeous game that really conveys the feeling of building a LEGO set far better than the well loved Traveller's Tales games before. The game is nice chilled experience, with a variety of interesting worlds to explore. Whilst some of the builds you have to complete can be challenging, especially for younger players - this allows for you to unleash your creativity to really let your imagination become a reality. Slight control issues are the only downside but even then they don't detract from the experience enough to worry about. TOTAL SCORE: 8/10
LEGO Bricktales is available now for Xbox and other consoles. The game is playable on Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S consoles. The game is priced at £24.99. You can buy the game HERE.
