Lego kits and bricks came first, then game Lego board games and finally Lego videogames.

More recently these are themed around franchises and brands. Harry Potter, Batman, Indiana Jones, Star Wars and Pirates of the Caribbean.

Star Wars is an Odyssey I will happily travel again and again. Real actors or Lego actors, terrible special effects or cool digital animation, cartoons, fan fic, whatever. I love it in all its incarnations. Lego Star Wars The Complete Saga on 360 was therefore right up my mythic street... read now

Lego Harry Potter Years 5-7 shines by not taking itself too seriously. By being allowed to poke pantomime fun at the films and books, and focusing on local co-operative play, it turns a good game into something rather special... read now

Lego Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game bristles with high seas imagination. But beyond the portability of this visually impressive version, there are still a few holes in what has become the second tier of Lego games next to the Wii, 360 and PS3 versions. Long story short, bring back multiplayer... read now
