Angry What idiot at TT thought up the "auto run" areas?!?!

the auto run sections of levels where your character is auto running, driving, etc and you can only make them go left or right, jump and thats about it. all Lego games have them and they are the complete bane of all Lego game players' existence.

if i ever meet the moron at TT that thought them up, i'm seriously going to jam a pencil in their eye. right up there with QTEs for the stupidest game mechanics ever. especially in a game with collectibles where they want you to take your time collecting everything, not be RUSHED or forced to jump at the right time to grab something which you dont even know exactly where it will be because of the camera angle.

only reason i feel like venting is i just missed the stupid chest at the end of Mount Doom for the 2nd time in a row because i jumped at the wrong time and it passed me by. its so incredibly frustrating that you have to do the ENTIRE LEVEL over again every time you miss it, and thats the biggest problem with these stupid friggin auto run parts.

i also am having issues with the one in the auto run part in Helm's Deep where you charge out on horseback. theres a chest you have to jump for right as you exit the castle part that i LITERALLY jumped and passed through and the game didnt give it to me. did they actually test this game at all, cause all in all it seems like the worst overall Lego game ive played, which is sad since its based on one of the coolest things ever.

Although i'm not as frustrated as you seem to be I know the feeling, the exact same thing just happened to me at the auto run section of helms deep I didn't realize i would have to jump to get the minikit box and went right underneath it ohwell time to go back and get it I suppose

I don't think ANY game created doesn't have a part of the game that everyone doesn't just hate (except maybe "Avatar - The Last Airbender: The Burning Earth" - which doesn't last long enough to annoy anyone, if you quit after getting all 1000gs... then again, it DOES have the most annoying game title).

Yes, I hate the auto-run parts... VERY annoying!
