:( The engine used on recent Lego PSP games simply sucks. They need to bring back the older LSWII and Batman engines, since Lego Indiana Jones 2, they put in this new engine that looks stiff and cartoonish. It was a huge downgrade, I don't know why they didn't make it using the old engine.
He mentions kids in the interview. I hope this isn't as easy as Harry Potter. That was too easy. Got platinum in 3 days. No challenge. Put an Easy, Normal or Hard option in it...
I for one think it's going to be great! The only Lego game I'm looking forward to since Star Wars :D
