The long-time developer behind games like WWE and NBA for 2K Games has now been given the reins of an entirely new IP altogether – LEGO. Visual Concepts’ new open-word kart-racer, LEGO 2K Drive, might have sneaked out under the shadow of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, but if critics are to believe, it’s not to be missed.
LEGO 2K Drive offers a beautiful open-world made of LEGO bricks, a single-player campaign that’s filled with laughs and gags (and plenty of toilet humour), a vehicle customization feature that lets you create cars from official LEGO bricks, and a fully-fledged split-screen co-op that allows you to race all the modes and mini-games, as well as the entire story campaign.
The big mark against the game seems to be its microtransaction store – a staple in 2K Games published titles – that encourages you to grind till you rub off the paint off your controller or pay vast sums of real-life dollars to purchase anything from the in-game store.
