Seriously the tribe representation is pretty wonky.
There's 5 main "hub" areas, each for one tribe. They're mostly what you would expect. You have your main tribes represented here: The Lions, the Crocodiles, the Eagles, the Gorillas, and....the Rhinos? Huh? Really though. Why are the Rhinos such a big part of the game. It's kind of baffling. There were no Rhinos in 2013, setwise, they didn't show up until 2014, and even then they were pretty minor. Yet not only is the Rhino region pretty important in the plot, but the Rhino tribe is one of the most useful as far as abilities go. The bears were in an even worse spot, as they only kinda will show up in sets in 2015, but even they have a mini-area connecting to the Gorilla Region. But what's really weird is not that the Rhinos and Bears are treated kind of well, but that the game kinda hates Ravens. Like. There are main hub regions for Lions, Crocs, Eagles, Gorillas, and Rhinos, and there are mini-regions for Bears and Beavers...but Ravens didn't get anything at all. The Wolves also don't have a dedicated region, but that's more justified because they're not sedentary, and in any case the last level has you attack their camp. But the Ravens have nothing of the sort. There's a dang market, and not even that is run by Ravens. They just show up as the bad guys in the Gorilla Region, and...that's it. Unlike the Wolves, they don't come back to become relevant or anything, they just...don't get anything.
The Ravens are the best, so this sucks.
Anyway. That aside, the thing I found really cool (by which I mean frustrating and sad) are all the cool minifigures you can unlock and use that obviously didn't show up in sets. The mooks you fight are pretty evenly of both genders, which is pretty dang cool. You don't see very many female characters in the actual sets, or show so you don't really know how they look like sometimes (especially for the Ravens, which are the one tribe of the main 6 from 2013 that never had any females in sets) but the game just has them, and it's really pretty cool. I really like the design of the Raven girls, and so wish they would have showed up in sets :/
Speaking of wishing they had shown up in sets, those Bears sure are nice.
I still don't really understand what is up with Chima. From the beginning, it's been eight tribes. Always eight tribes. Lions, Crocs, Eagles, Ravens, Gorillas, Wolves, Rhinos, and Bears. That's always been reflected in the media. TV show? Eight tribes, always. The second season even featured Baldvic pretty hard. Game? Eight tribes, with the Rhinos as major players. But the sets only had six when it really counted, and it's just...dumb, and confusing. Because I don't think they just had those two extra tribes for the show. That would have been dumb, because it's kind of a major part of the setting. And while the game takes some cues from the show, it's much more set accurate, so I don't think it's just replicating the designs from the show, or just adding random characters. Which means, to me, that at some level, those tribes always existed, or were meant to exist, as sets. And I can't for the life of me understand why they didn't.
Dom de la Woosh is in the game and his special move is dancing. That's pretty nice.
