When I heard that Brick Rigs was like Lego Digital Design, but you could play with what you have built. I knew that I had to check it out! As I write this the game is in early access and it does not look like it will be leaving that anytime soon. However, if you like building things or want something you can play with your kid. I think that this is well worth taking a closer look at.
Don’t Step On The Bricks!
As far as I could tell or figure out there is no actual story or “point” to what you will be doing and messing around with when you are playing Brick Rigs. The idea of the game is to use your creative genius and come up with all kinds of cool vehicles. Remember when you used to spend hours as a kid building all kinds of crazy stuff with your Legos? Well, that is basically what you have here. You have an unlimited amount of bricks that you can use and the only limitation on offer here is your own creativity.
Land, Rail, Or Sky!
There really is no limit to the kind of vehicle you can come up with in Brick Rigs. I have messed around and made all kinds of crazy stuff. This ranges from normal cars to tanks to a pretty over the top railway system. You start off with one thing and then it quickly turns into something else.
I had a great deal of fun playing through this with my son. We both have pretty weird imaginations so we were coming up with all kinds of crazy stuff. There is an online component to this game, but I found the community to be a bit on the exhausting side. Not to mention the fact that the game (well on my PC) seemed to have a fair bit of trouble staying smooth when there were a ton of bricks on the screen at the same time.
Take It To The Limits
My son and I loved messing around with the Lego Digital Designer, but Brick Rigs lets you take things a step further. It does this by letting you actually use the vehicles you have created. You can test the physics of your creation and this is very amusing. You spend hours building a crazy car only for it to be uncontrollable and smash into the side of a hill!
If you like playing around with Legos and building stuff in general then I am sure you will have a good time with what is on offer here. Using the tons of different bricks on offer to bring to life a tank with major firepower or a car that can go at the speed of light or a chopper that can save Arnie from the Predator in the jungle is a lot of fun. While the game is still in early access, I do feel that Brick Rigs offers more than enough to keep you entertained for a long time.
