LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy Xbox 360 Review
30 May 2010
Excerpt: The intentions of all involved are clear for all to see in the LEGO Star Wars games. A unification of building bricks, little people, lightsaber’s, jedi’s, stormtroopers and everything else Star Wars was a little unexpected to say the least, but fans of both avenues were over the moon with the results.
Excerpt: All that's ever asked of a videogame sequel is that it offer everything people liked about the first game, with slightly superior graphics and minor improvements on the gameplay. A deceptively simple target to shoot for, many games can't seem to hit it. Lego Star Wars II is a special case—it would seem like following up on a fantastic game just sixteen months after the first title would provide an impossible timetable. The developers had an ace up their sleeve, though.
Conclusion: Friendly AI does NOT kill enemies...ever Bottom Line: Achieving 1000/1000 isn't difficult, but it can get extremely tedious. If you need help finding a power brick or want your hand held for every step, I HIGHLY recommend this guide .. http://guides.gamepressure.com/legostarwars2theoriginaltrilo...
LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy (Xbox 360) Review
1 June 2007
Summary: If you have any console this is easily a game you should play and the only problem with the 360 version is that it’s a little more expensive the any other, which does seem a bit of a cheap thing to do. Ignoring that this is easily one of the best games this year and something I loved playing from beginning to end and whether you love or loathe Star Wars or whatever age you are you will find something here to like.
Summary: Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy moves the series forward in a few crucial ways, namely balance and replay value, but it’s one step forward and two steps back. By changing the core formula that made the original title work, Lego Star Wars II, for all its additions, just isn’t as much fun as the original.
Pros: It's Star Wars
Cons: Vehicle controls done poorly. Adaptive difficulty can make it overly hard.
Excerpt: LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy is the follow-up to the hugely successful LEGO Star Wars: The Video Game, but where the original game enabled you to play through levels based on the new trilogy of films (Episodes I-III) the sequel enables you to play through Episodes IV-VI. As you progress through the story of the three films, you get access to over 50 characters including your favourites Luke, Han, Leia, Chewbacca and the droids.
Excerpt: . I get the sneaking suspicion it was quite overlooked by most gamers because Lucasarts have over the years done a grave injustice to the Star Wars license by producing a vast amount of very lackluster games. The big Lego logo would also turn off those gamers who go for so-called mature titles, as it would indicate this game is purely for kids.
