The story is done! The day has been saved! There’s still many, many hours of game left as I’m only about 35% finished!
I won’t say much about the ending, because, well, spoilers. What I must say, however, is that it was actually genuinely properly epic. Like nothing before from any other Lego game. For a short time, there’s some of the usual funny silly stuff, then a fight between you in a giant robot suit and Rex Fury riding a robot dinosaur, but after that there’s a bit of dramatic from-space skyfalling which is absolutely fantastic. The music, the Earth below you, and the countdown timer all combine to bring something to a Lego game that no other Lego game has even approached.
It outdoes Halo and Gears of War and Dead Space. No, really.
And that was it! Now to begin the post-game mop-up.
