Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga
30 December 2008
Excerpt: Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga keeps the same visual style of the previous titles. Sure the game has a much more detailed look with the Hi-Def output that the PS3 is capable of, but the levels and characters still keep their very Lego-like charm, which helps to give this game series its appealing feel.
Conclusion: Lego Star Wars: Complete Saga might have not been the best idea to make, but if you don’t own either of the last Lego Star Wars games then you should be in good hands here. LucasArts did add in a few new things but none of it really screams “Buy Me Again”. If you haven’t played either of the old games then give this a shot, the Complete Saga is a good game. Sure it has a few problems here and there but every game has this.
Excerpt: At first, way back when, we couldn't really understand the logical connection between the legendary Star Wars movie saga and the legendary construction toy, LEGO. But then again, we figure Lucas can pull off just about anything, and this seemingly bizarre combination worked like a charm.
Excerpt: It sounded like a stupid idea, really. Back in 2005 we?d had our fill of Star Wars, and many fans were still feeling burned by Lucas? disappointing prequels -- so who?d want to play a Star Wars game starring characters made of plastic building blocks? I mean, besides parents and children? Turned out the game, LEGO Star Wars , featured decent gameplay, a wicked sense of humor and style, and the joy inherent in blasting bumbling Storm Troopers into their component bits.
Excerpt: When LEGO Star Wars exploded onto the scene in 2005, it followed the story of the prequel trilogy (Episodes I-III) the films of which were just finishing their cinema run at the time. The success of the first game led to LEGO Star Wars: The Original Trilogy in 2006 which covered the original films (Episodes IV-VI) and introduced a few new play mechanics such as the bounty hunter missions and Tauntaun riding.
Conclusion: If you're looking to get a lot of bang for your buck, it's hard to go wrong with The Complete Saga . New additions and tweaks manage to keep the game feeling fresh, even for fans who've played it all before.
Excerpt: The past two Lego Star Wars games were hits, no doubt about it. And now we're presented with The Complete Saga, a compilation of those two games, with a few tweaks here and there. Don't expect any "Greedo shot first" changes, as thankfully, it seems Mr. Lucas sat this one out and let the designers make their definitive version. Hey, it's Star Wars, done with Lego.
Conclusion: LEGO STAR WARS: The Complete Saga is a nice merging of the two previous games and gives the gamer a few more bonuses that make you want to buy and play this game to experience. Traveller’s Tales did a good job bringing this to the next generation of game play. This is a solid game that anyone can pick up, play, and enjoy. If you think it is for the kiddies think again. What other game can you destroy pretty much everything on screen with a light saber.
Conclusion: Many of the changes and additions in The Complete Saga are the types that only those who've played through Lego Star Wars I or II would notice, and that's the rub. For those who've already played one of the Lego Star Wars games, a full half of what The Complete Saga has to offer will be recycled.
Pros: Introduces online play to the series, Gameplay still varied and friendly, Original Lego Star Wars graphics upgraded .
Cons: Nearly all of the content is recycled from previous Lego Star Wars games.
Summary: LucasArts and Traveller's Tales happened upon an alchemical combination of nostalgia with the 2005 release of Lego Star Wars, a jovial action adventure game that mined a pan-generational affection for both George Lucas' space opera and those colorful Danish building blocks. Its 2006 sequel was better, largely because it was based on the original trilogy rather than the prequels.
Pros: Introduces online play to the series, Gameplay still varied and friendly, Original Lego Star Wars graphics upgraded
