Become a master of Spinjitzu, a martial art form in which trained individuals spin and become tornadoes to defeat their enemies, restoring harmony to the world into the bargain. Choose to play for the forces of good or evil in single-player campaigns, test your skills in a variety of Battle Mode challenges, or play with family and friends in multiplayer showdowns...

In LEGO: Ninjago - The Videogame gamers must recover powerful Ninja weapons and overcome challenges featuring dragons, larger-than-life battles and a story that includes cameos by fan favourites from LEGO Battles. In addition you can build and customize your own army of Spinjitzu heroes or Skulkin villains as you deploy armies on missions to defeat the enemy.

For those of you who are used to the numerous LEGO games released through Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment LEGO: Ninjago is a little different.

On the negative side, the graphics look extremely dated and the animation is pretty minimalistic. Also there are a few instances when it's not overly clear what you have to do. On the positive side, once you get into the game it's quite addictive. If you're new to the RTS genre then this will get you hooked. However, if you're a hardcore RTS gamer then you might like to give this basic offering a wide berth.

If you're thinking of buying this then look out for the version with the free DVD, as it contains a number of episodes of the cartoon series.
