Mac|Life 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. Mac|Life gave the game a score of 3 out of 5.

From the review:

The way your character progresses in Lego Universe is awesome for beginners, though unconventional for an MMO. Instead of gaining levels and XP, you explore the different planets for tokens hidden within every smashable Lego creation. These tokens increase your health meter, armor limit, and imagination points, which let you perform actions like the aforementioned quick builds. You’ll join one of four factions: the Assembly (building), the Venture League (exploring), the Sentinels (fighting), or the Paradox (mystical fighting). Whatever you choose will determine your skills, and you’ll be able to collect wearable objects, weaponry, and armor that enable special fighting and defense abilities.

The most intriguing element of Lego Universe—and the redeeming factor of its monthly subscription fee—is having your own real estate in the game. That’s right: you get your very own planet where you can freely build your own virtual Lego creations with bricks and pieces you pick up by completing quests and smashing objects, or that you purchase from a vendor. Best of all, you can interact with other players’ planets, and they can come hang out on yours too. This part of Lego Universe is the most expansive and really illustrates how this MMO truly understands why people love to play with Legos in the first place: community and customization.
