Be warned, P5Striker players: Bond EXP grinding is ridiculous. Add to that soft locking the game when you haven't saved in a while, I'm frustrated.

2021 #10: LEGO Ninjago Movie Videogame
Story
Ever seen a LEGO movie? It's not bad, using the mechanics of the games and combining the appearance of stop-motion animation to create a blend that breaks the fourth wall. This game, based off of a movie, based off of an animated series that is based off of a toy franchise, based off a toy franchise, is no different.

Six high schoolers, ninjas that protect Ninjago City from terrible threats, are entreated with protecting the citizens from Lord Garmadon's recent attempts at taking over the city. One of the ninja, Lloyd, has a relation with Garmadon, seeing as that is his dad, and seeks to prove himself over the others. He takes the Ultimate Weapon from Master Fu's arsenal and tries to use it on his foe, but Garmadon takes it instead and uses it to destroy the city. After that, some self discovery is to be had for the ninja that cannot use their color-coded mechs anymore. Coming of power story that ends rather poorly.

Gameplay
Like any LEGO game, you have levels divided up among the story. Each level has collectibles, secrets, characters to unlock, and some goals to achieve. Unlock most, it actually has these levels as open world environments that you can return to after completing them to explore them freely, unlocking the collectibles more easily. I would suggest completing the game first, as you unlock necessary abilities with the main characters (and some specific characters themselves) to make collectible hunting much easier. There were times where it was frustrating to have to change to specific ninja in order to just use their weapons to do something, and the character switching wasn't the most intuitive compared to the predecessors.

Challenge
There are still quite a few bugs apparent within the game. Things reload that you have already taken down for some collectibles, making you hazard a guess whether you really did hit it before or not, and the Collectible Markers that appear don't split across like they did before in some other games like LEGO Harry Potter. As such, while it may point at a spot on the ground, the thing to make the Gold Brick or Character Token appear might be scattered throughout the level. If there was a small mini-map or some aid other than online sources to help keep track of some of the things needed, it would've been nicer.

I also ran into some issues where the Collectible challenges, such as Races or Side Quests, didn't allow me to trigger them, meaning I would have to either reload the area by going elsewhere or just outright leave the game and come back to it. This did make the grind to 220 Gold Bricks and 101 Character Tokens a bit lengthier, so I am glad it is done now. As with other LEGO games, it was worth a run and a half and then to forget it ever existed.
