LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy
3 July 2010
Excerpt: Whether you’re jumping to lightspeed from inside the Millennium Falcon or braving the blizzards of Hoth on the back of a tauntaun, there’s nothing quite like the assortment of starships and creatures found throughout the Star Wars galaxy. This September 12, LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy gives you the chance to ride just about anything you saw in Episodes IV, V and VI as you build and battle your way through a tongue-in-cheek Star Wars experience.
Excerpt: Try to avoid Star Wars fans, at least the ones that were " there when it was shown for the first time " in their town. You'll undoubtedly be told a story about how their mouth gaped open in sheer wonder at what was happening on the cinema screen, while at the same time hearing about why the new films are awful and how the unaltered originals are still the best.
LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy (Gamecube) Review
21 September 2006
Excerpt: When LEGO Star Wars was released last year the game was met with much acclaim, being a Star Wars game that broke away from the generic formula, providing an experience that was simple and easy to play and had a lot going for it in terms of fun factor. Now we bear witness to LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy, and as the name suggests this sequel focuses on the last three movies in the Star Wars film series, which are Episode IV: A New Hope, Episode V: The Empire...
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy is one of those games seemingly built around the idea of collecting as many things as possible. There's nothing wrong with this, but it's not what I enjoy about games. The bonds most twenty- and thirtysomethings have to the original Star Wars flicks means that there's a big audience for this, but, fun as it is, the gameplay just isn't there to back it up.
Excerpt: Anyone with a Game Boy Advance that's remotely interested in the Star Wars franchise will probably get a kick out of Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy. Watching the three original Star Wars stories play out with characters and scenery composed of Lego bricks is a whimsical treat. But even beyond the charming Lego theme, it's a solidly designed action adventure game.
Pros: It's the original trilogy played out with Legos, great use of music and sounds from the films, explorative levels and fast-paced combat, a wealth of playable characters, numerous secrets to unlock
Cons: Combat is repetitive at times, story mode can be finished in two hours
Excerpt: Though essentially the same game as Lego Star Wars II The Original Trilogy for Xbox 360, the GameCube, PlayStation2 and Xbox versions of the game just don't quite measure up, mainly in the graphics department.
