The Graphics

Firstly before I get to the gameplay and other aspects of this game. Let me just say that the graphics on this are beautiful and a substantial upgrade on my last Lego Gaming Experience, which was back in 2014 on the PS4 with Lego Marvel Superheros. The attention to detail is dazzling. Especially when you is blasting your way through the ships or roaming around a planet. One of my favorite visuals was during the New Hope section of the game where you have to fight off stormtroopers while helping chewie repair the millennium falcon. I also loved the podracing on Tatooine, which is far more entertaining than that scene in the movie.

 

Gameplay & Playability

Lego Star Wars much like other titles in the Lego gaming franchise is a title you can pick up and play right away. Its a fairly easy ride and on average you can probably expect to complete each movie in the space of an hour to an hour and a half. However, you’ll very likely find yourself revisiting it often as there is lots of replayability to it and collectibles to find.

In terms of controls, it’s fairly straightforward. But the main gist is to collect the bricks, which you can do by breaking things as well as just exploring. And it just wouldn’t be a Lego game if you were not able to build things. There are loads to build in this game as you get presented with a few simple challenges and puzzles to solve, which will need you to build something or pull on a lever. Just, whatever you do. Don’t push the big red button.

 

Voice Acting

The voice acting is pretty solid throughout the game. And we do get the odd performance from actual Star Wars talents such as Anthony Daniels and Billy Dee Williams who reprise their roles as C3PO and Lando Calrissian. And A.J. LoCascio does a fairly good Han Solo. So it pretty much gets a decent pass with the voice acting.

 

Overall

Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga gets a huge thumbs up from me. I have to admit that I didn’t approach this game without any real expectations either way. As I had kind of ignored much of the hype. And glad that I did because I feel that me ignoring the hype made me appreciate the game more.

I really loved the crazy humour that we get in these games as well as the Lego films. Like at the start of the New Hope part of the game. We see C3P0 and R2D2 get blasted by the Jawas. And when they are being sold to Luke Skywalkers Uncle Ben R2 is wearing 3P0’s head and vice versa. I also loved the escape pod sequence where our two plucky droids find several of the pods being used before they find one to escape in.

Overall. This is a fab game for the kids as well as the big kids like myself who still love Star Wars and like to mess with Lego.
