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: In a galaxy far far away, there is a brand that has been exploited to within an inch of its life. Star Wars has seen more merchandise than just about any other film in history, and why not? With a loyal, ever increasing fan base and a whole galaxy to explore for ideas it’s a match made in heaven. One of the more popular brands to use Star Wars is Lego , with a vast amount of sets available to recreate all your favourite scenes from the films.
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.
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.
Conclusion: What is the BEST thing about the game? TT1: Funny bits! TT2: The funny videos. TT3: The way that it has funny jokes in. BT: The pure nostalgia factor you get when being reminded of classic scenes from the movies. Also there are some nice funny touches like disturbing storm troopers in the bath.
Pros: Classic Scenes / Funny Scenes, Character builder, Co-op gameplay
Cons: Occasional issues with getting stuck on levels, Some of the levels are quite long for young kids to play
