Macworld recently posted a new review of LEGO Universe. The game allows players to create their own custom LEGO minifigure and venture forth to combat the Maelstrom, join with friends to complete missions, and collect bricks to build imaginative creations. Macworld gave the game a score of 3 out of 5 mice.

From the review:

The Lego Universe is currently a handful of worlds and several hundred missions. The worlds are divided up loosely by the four militarized factions of the Lego people: you choose between joining up with the knights and samurai of The Sentinels, the high-tech builders of Assembly, the ninjas and dark wizards of Paradox, and the Venture League’s pirates. It’ll take you about 10 to 20 hours to complete most of the missions, but it’ll take you much longer to max out your character. Earning faction-specific gear requires acquiring faction tokens—in-game currency usually found after defeating Maelstrom foes.

Some of the larger set pieces, like Paradox’s Forbidden Valley, demonstrate an imagination and creativity that is worthy of the franchise. Advancing up the huge tree and earning the respect of the various ninja masters is one of the cooler segments of the game and even surpasses some of the moments in Lego Indiana Jones on my personal favorite Lego game moments. The fruits of your labor are equally compelling—Ninja mask, gi, sword, and skills are all pretty fun to play with. Seeing your little brick Ninja unleash throwing stars is also a really geeky and adorable moment.
