LEGO DIMENSIONS - MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE LEVEL PACK
TT Games/WB Games
Tom, it’s time for you to come out of the closet...
didn’t think we’d break out the old, “Your mission, should you
choose to accept it” shtick, did you? Give us a little more credit!
One of the first two LEGO Dimensions Year Two Level
Packs drops us into the espionage-packed world of the Mission:
Impossible movies. Or, more specifically, the first of them
from back in 1996.

siren or exhaust pipes the next.
Ethan’s motorbike is an OK

Hunter car from the Midway Arcade Level Pack. Not the greatest
brickular work from the LEGO Dimensions crew, but they make up for
As is TT Games’ talent, they take a whole movie, cut out all the

ability, where he can scan another character and become their
doppelganger, allowing for access to parts that would otherwise
result in sirens blaring and guns a-pointing.
