So can you build whatever you want like Minecraft, or is it just a boring MMO with Lego slapped on it? This trailer tells me nothing.

Half and half. There's a lot of running around beating on randomly spawning mobs while on a quest, but then I doubt you could really avoid that in an MMO. There's lots of scope for free form lego building, but only in designated areas. So I guess the answer to your question is no, not like Minecraft at all.

That said, we've been in beta, and our kids are getting their pre-order copy any day now.
