I noticed best buy removed the 10 dollar cert banner they had for lego dimensions. I did take a screen shot so hopefully they still give it to me. :)

You are missing Doctor Who. It is the only reason I will eventually own this game.

Ugh, those prices. I really want to be on board for this but they're just too damn expensive.

Nintendo already has me bent over. I won't be letting Lego ride the train.

I'm skeptical that this pricing is sustainable but I've been wrong before.

Shouldn't be a surprise that Lego + Toys to Life = Huge Costs, I swear Lego sets are like double the price that I bought them as a kid. Still, the Portal 2 level looks pretty cool, but I'm probably not gonna bite 'til I see some really decent sales.

I'll wait for some decent deals before I buy these things.  If these end up being like amiibo stock, I guess I won't buy at all.

I'm right there with you. I'll only buy them if there is a great sale and they are easily attainable; otherwise I'll pass.

I spend enough on Disney Infinity, so I have to draw the line somewhere, lol.

I wonder on which side of the pricing pendulum this is going to swing as far as price drops. Will it bottom out in months like the Lego games or will we be lucky to ever see a sale like actual lego sets?

Or worse yet, no sales and amiibo-like shortages.

I preordered my copy ages ago. I do not recall if there was a $10 cert advertised at the time. Regardless, I do not see any indication of it now. Can you provide a link?

I am so on the fence. I still have plenty of DI 3.0 to play, this is the first Skylanders game I did not get at launch and I want Dimensions. To wait or not to wait. Ugh.

Neat, my Best Buy order already showed up. Too bad I wont get to play it until a little bit later. Im not quite sure that the $100 price tag is fair, but after BB GCU and Reward Certificates, I am pretty sure I can make most of what I spent back when I sell it after I finish playing it. So not a big deal.

Have they explained why this costs $25 more than Skylanders? Is it just Lego Tax or is it really a full length Lego game and the level packs aren't actually needed?



#29 elessar123

You can platinum the game without buying anything but the base game.

 

The level packs aren't required, but probably adds the most to the game, out of everything.

 

The fun packs and vehicle packs are probably not required for anything, and are probably a waste of money. Unless you want the minifigure, like me.

 

As for why it costs more than Skylanders, probably just cause it's a lot of licenses. They also claim you never need to rebuy things in the future, so it might be a more advanced portal. It also supports seven simultanenous figures/vehicles, which might have affected it.

The gamespot review has indicated that its about 12-14 hours which is pretty long for a Lego game and longer than skylanders by a couple of hours.That said, the value proposition is pretty interesting (if not weird) for Dimensions. The two big things I noticed as far extra purchases were:

 

1. ANY character pack unlocked a free roam world with numerous (if not repetitive) missions. My take is that if you like the license you'll probably enjoy the monotony of fetch quests more.

 

2. Level packs look like they are about an hour but ALSO unlock the free roam world for that character. IGN has a few of them now and they look decent though waiting for a discount looks like it may be the way to go.

 

If these level and fun packs get the 5-10 dollar discounts the Infinity stuff seems to regularly I think they will likely be a pretty good deal for people who like the now standard lego game design.
