LEGO Dimensions | Time For An Adventure
LEGO Dimensions is the best toys-to-life game so far, trumping the like of Skylanders and Disney Infinity thanks to its innovative toy portal, hilarious script and brilliantly diverse cast of characters.
A year after launching with the likes of Back to the Future, Lord of the Rings, Batman and Wizard of Oz, LEGO Dimensions returns with a year's worth of classic franchises from the world of TV, film and gaming.
That's on top of brand new game modes that add a competitive edge to the traditional LEGO Dimensions co-operative experience, plus new puzzle types, building blocks and more.
So just in case you needed an excuse to go out and buy a ton of new LEGO toy packs, here's what Express Online loves most about LEGO Dimensions Year 2.

1. More AMAZING TV and film franchises
It was always going to be hard to top the likes of Jurassic Park, Doctor Who and Ghostbusters, but LEGO Dimensions Year 2 has come close with Harry Potter, Mission Impossible, Adventure Time, Powerpuff Girls and, well, Ghostbusters - the new one that divided fans.
It's also great news for anybody grew up in the 1980s, because LEGO Dimensions Year 2 will feature levels and toys from the golden age of TV and film. There's the A-Team, Gremlins, Knight Rider, Goonies, Beetlejuice and E.T: The Extra-Terrestrial. All it needs is He-Man, Indiana Jones and Teenage Mutant Hero (or Ninja) Turtles, and it would be perfect.
But perhaps most exciting of all is the upcoming Sonic Level Pack, which has a November 18 release date. We can't wait to see more LEGO Sonic gameplay ahead of the big launch (you can watch the trailer below).
2. Competitive Battle Arenas
The LEGO games have always featured co-operative gameplay, as parents and children team up to collect bricks, solve puzzles and generally smash the scenery to bits.
But LEGO Dimensions Year 2 turns multiplayer on its head, introducing a brand new competitive mode that take place in themed Battle Arenas.
There are multiple game modes to enjoy, including Capture the Flag, Objective and Base Bash. They're all as fun as they sound - despite the perma-splitscreen camera.
But the best game of all is Tick Tag Boom, as players frantically try to get rid of an explosive LEGO block before the timer runs out. It's like that exploding water balloon game you played as a child.
3. New Stories and Puzzles
While fans of the franchise-hopping original LEGO Dimensions will be disappointed by the smaller scale of the new story packs, Year 2 will have more than just single level expansions.
The new Ghostbusters pack features six levels that closely follow the plot of the film, which is the same as the Fantastic Beasts Story Pack - handy if you can't get tickets for opening weekend.
There's also new dimension-hopping puzzles that make good use of your LEGO Portal, which remains a key part of the experience.
4. You don't need a new LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack
LEGO Dimensions gets the nod over some of the other toys-to-life games because the toy portal - the thing you put the figures on to make them appear in the game - is an integral part of the experience, and not just something the publisher can use to jack up the price.
And fortunately - given how much it will cost you to buy all the figures - Warner isn't forcing you to buy a new portal, as all the toys and figures from both seasons work with the original starter pack.
And if building that original toy portal was your favourite part of the original game, don't worry, Warner has got you covered...
5. New LEGO Dimensions Gateway Builds
Yes, perhaps the best news of all is that the brand new Ghostbusters and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Story Packs come with alternative Gateway builds.
Players can dismantle that boring old LEGO portal from Year 1 and build Zhu’s Chinese Restaurant from Ghostbusters in its place. Likewise, the Fantastic Beasts pack will feature the MACUSA gateway when it launches in November.
Hopefully even more packs will come with gateway builds over the course of the year, because, let's face it, nothing beats building actual LEGO.
