yea this game is awesome 5hrs logged and only 9.4% complete.I have only unlocked 4 of the 7 different city sections . theres just so much to find in each section ill end up doing a mission and get sidetracked exploring and finding character tokens , vehicles, etc...

$30 is a steal for the content screw the reviews giving this 5/10 etc... by far the best handheld lego game i have played (and ive played most of them from psp to ds to vita)

That's pretty much how I feel. Everyone keeps comparing it to the much larger WiiU version, which is a mistake in my opinion. Compare it to all of the portable LEGO games and it blows them all out of the water. It's like a PSP GTA game if anything.

Seems like there are a few of us who are genuinely enjoying this game (me being one).

I never played the Wii U version and cannot compare, but as a Lego 3DS game, this is the best I've played. Lot's to explore and lot's to do. I've played about the same number of hours, but haven't progressed as far, taking time to explore and there is a ton to do here.

The game is only "bad" when you compare it to the Wii U version (which is stupid in the first place--if they were basically the same then what would be the appeal of the console version!?). Compared to other portable LEGO games and other 3DS games period, it's phenomenal. Huge open world, fun gameplay, and technical issues are minor (and frankly, to be expected).

I'm about as far as TC and I have been absolutely loving every moment of the game so far. Haven't had any issues yet.

Well said idk why people compare it to the Wi u when the 3ds doesn't even compare power wise.

Yeah, it seems like every review compares it to the Wii U version.
I don't have a Wii U, so I can't compare it. I do have a 3DS though, and it seems really fun. Most people seem to like it so I think I might get it for my birthday tomorrow. Seems really ridiculous how people compare a separate game that is a prequel to a console game. I really want to read a review that doesn't compare it to the Wii U.

I'm pretty hooked on this game. I've already put in over 12 hours and only have 38% completed. Exploring is awesome. I wanna go everywhere and get all the things.

It's a great game, it's a shame that it's not going to make as much money because of poor reviews.
