Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is all about right now for most Switch owners, but there are still plenty of other new releases to enjoy.

One, in particular, that arrived this week is LEGO 2K Drive – a new open-world driving simulator featuring all kinds of live-action elements. The first round of reviews has just been released, and overall it seems like a decent experience so far. Here is what a few of the outlets had to say:

IGN gave the LEGO 2K Drive an 8 out of 10 – describing it as “one part The Crew 2, one part Mario Kart, and a thousand parts… LEGO parts”:

“It’s a game that embraces the full creative freedom offered by real LEGO as few games before it, with an incredible custom vehicle builder that’s worth the price of admission alone. The current inability to share these builds with others is disappointing – especially given yet another boring shop for microtransactions – but LEGO 2K Drive is definitely the fastest and funniest way to get your blocks to work in recent memory.”

The folks at VGC also thought it was a “great open world game” – giving it 4 out of 5 stars, but they weren’t that impressed with the 2K microtransactions:

“Lego 2K Drive is a great open-world racing game with good humor and great customization options. As long as you can handle typical 2K microtransactions and take steps to avoid the major savings issue at launch, it’s worth playing.”

Digital Trends was harsher than Microtransactions, giving it only 3 out of 5 stars:

“If you move away from the store and the online mode, there is a lot to enjoy Lego 2k engine. The colorful story mode alone is worth the price of admission, and creating a copy of Forza horizon This is more welcoming to younger fans and casual racing enthusiasts. It makes me feel like a kid again, playing with Legos in my bedroom. But every time I go back to the main menu and see the store, I’m back to being a world-weary adult who can’t help but critique the troubling work practices.”

In contrast, GamesRadar+ went with the LEGO 2K Drive – calling it a “very classy game” for all ages and giving it 4 out of 5 stars:

“It’s clear that LEGO 2K Drive is a very high-end game. It looks great, works well, is full of features and well balanced to ensure everyone has a great time. LEGO 2K Drive is an easy recommendation then, no matter if you’re looking for a gift for a child or want to Just a healthy palette cleanser for yourself.”

And sister site Pure Xbox thought it was a cute “LEGO-themed” take on series like Forza HorizonGiving it 7 out of 10 stars:

LEGO 2K Drive is at its best when it focuses on the last word of its title – driving and participating in wild, hilarious side missions as you battle it out is the best way to engage this open world racer. The actual race It leaves it a touch down, and we think the game is a bit pricey for the levels it offers, but this is still something of fun and variety for the whole family. If you want a LEGO-themed game, Forza Horizon takes it up a notch, just don’t expect the same AAA levels of sheen you get from Xbox series exclusives. “
