LEGO 2K Drive – Nintendo Switch 3-in-1 Aquadirt Racer Set is a thrilling open-world racing game that comes with a physical LEGO kit to build a real-world 3-in-1 Aquadirt Racer vehicle. The game offers an ultimate LEGO driving experience, featuring open-world exploration, thrilling races, story mode, and off-the-wall minigames. Players can master the art of drifting, boosting, jumping, and using power-ups to defeat opponents. The story mode follows your journey from rookie racer to famous champion as you compete against charismatic rivals and work your way up to take on the infamous Shadow Z.
One of the standout features of the game is the near-instant fluidity of the transformations of your vehicles between different terrains, making the driving aspects and physics top-notch. The custom vehicle designing functionality is well-implemented, allowing players to build the vehicle piece by piece and create almost anything they want. However, there is a limitation of only 350 piece builds, and the ‘crafting cube’ favors the front end of the vehicle more than the rear, which may feel like there’s wasted building space.
Despite the limitations, the game offers an enjoyable experience when creating your own vehicles, with a wide variety of available blocks and additional ones unlocked as you progress through the story mode. However, the chief complaint from some users is the broken Unkie’s Emporium, where purchases cannot be made, resulting in frustration and loss of in-game currency.
Overall, LEGO 2K Drive – Nintendo Switch 3-in-1 Aquadirt Racer Set is a highly engaging game that combines the excitement of open-world exploration with the creativity of building and racing LEGO vehicles. While the broken Unkie’s Emporium is a significant drawback, the game’s immersive gameplay, story mode, and custom vehicle designing make it a must-have for LEGO and racing game enthusiasts.
