One Response to Readers’ Review: Lego Star Wars

  1. LightStixx says:

    This game is the interactive form of Star Wars ep. 1-6 without the voice acting (or human acting for that matter). The lego characters are insanely cute and this game is definitely good fun.

    The gameplay for this game is enjoyable, unless you’re playing 2P. First of all, the controls are simple and you can shake the wiimote to attack and defend. However, it can be difficult to defend with the wiimote action alone as the “pose” required is hard to achieve. I ended up using the B button more often. Note that this applies to almost all characters as they can evade attacks (for zappers) or reflect (for lightsabres) if the “Attack/Defend” is triggered at the right time.
    Force Attacks can be a hassle as you need to position your lego character to face the right direction in order to highlight the enemy with the force sparkle. Usage of the force to move stuff is also limited to those which are highlighted with force sparkles. There’s also a red sparkle, which means it can only be forced by a Sith. If attacked while “forcing”, you will be disrupted and the objects would move back slowly to it’s original position. Thankfully, forceable items cannot be destroyed, so feel free to destroy everything else to collect studs.
    Loose lego bits can be found upon destruction of stuff or just hanging around the levels. These can be constructed into useful objects which could lead to acquiring Easter Eggs such as red bricks (more on this later). However, they can only be constructed if they are jumping up & down. Both the force and construction controls are done the same way, by pressing and holding the Z button.
    Moving on to camera angles. There is almost no control over camera angles, meaning you’d have to walk round a wall blind. However, if the camera doesn’t point that way, means you don’t need to go that way. It’s only required if you want to get 100% of the gold bricks, which include attaining “True Jedi” status every stage (more on this later). Camera angles are atrocious during 2P play. Unlike SSBB, the camera is not fixated on P1. Instead it tries to encompass both P1 & P2 in the same screen by zooming out. However, upon a certain limit of zooming out, the screen will become a “box” where one player could drag the other player along (albeit slowly). This could be good if your other player is occupied with replying an SMS or something like that, but it spells disaster if you’re supposed to jump over burning lava. I was bloody pissed with this “feature” while playing 2P with my GF.
    The game story is EXACTLY the same as the movies. There are short cut scenes at the start and end of each chapter, which are very cute and entertaining. There are also cut scenes at the start and end of each episode. In total, there are 6 episodes with 6 chapters per episode (ie 36 playable levels, excluding bonus levels). So this game can really give you value for money in the playtime department (more on game completion and bonuses later).
    Cut scenes are short and cute. Definitely enjoyable by the whole family (no blood or gore). For example, when Quigon Jinn (is that how it’s spelt?) died after fighting Darth Maul, his eye just turned to (X_X) The effect turned this sad sight into a laughable matter.
    Levels come in an array of types, there are exploration levels like most RPG. And there’s also flying levels, which is quite often seen in Star Wars (X-Wing, cruiser etc). On average, there will be one flying level per episode.

    This game is generally fun, unless you forget the story which happened in the movie (like me). Since this game is based entirely on the movies from ep 1-6, the important parts of the gameplay are all governed by the movie. I forgotten how Han Solo and gang defeated the monster in Jaba’s “House” and took me about half an hour to figure out (only took me 5 to kill it). So if you remember the story, this game will be flowing and it’ll be loads of fun to play.

    Replayability on this game is extremely high. Note that upon my completion of the game (ie ep 6), the game completion percentage was only 45%. That included unlockables such as characters and gold bricks which I had used studs to purchase. So I can safely assume that Ep 1-6 would only be just above 40%.
    Upon completion of the chapter, it would unlock Free Play Mode of that chapter. That would allow you to use any other character to go through that level. Allowing you to use doors that otherwise would not open in Story Mode (example Bounty Hunters have doors that only open to them).
    Easter Eggs are all over this game. It boasts a total of 160 Gold Bricks throughout the game, whereas there are only 36 levels (1 upon completion in Story Mode). Here are some of the Easter Eggs that are quite interesting.
    True Jedi
    Each level, you will be able to collect studs (small pieces of lego, something like money). There is a bar in the middle of the screen which fills up each time you collect some studs. Upon filling the bar completely (usually approx 40k studs), you attain True Jedi status (which awards an additional Gold Brick at the end of the level) However each time you die, you’d lose some studs (ranges from 1k-4k per death). So you need to be careful not to die too often.
    Red Bricks
    Red bricks unlock certain gameplay unlockables such as Super lightsabres which deal x2 damage to normal minions. Red bricks are scattered all over the levels.
    Bonus Levels
    There are certain bonus levels for each chapter upon completion of the chapter (triggered by no of gold bricks). These bonus levels feature contents like a town in which you can destroy almost everything. Or a pod race. I have not completed any of the bonus levels yet, but I could bet that there would be gold bricks or red bricks upon completion.
    Indiana Jones
    Yes! Indiana Jones is a playable Lego character in this game. Surprised? It’s actually to start the hype for Lego Indiana Jones. He can be unlocked simply by watching the Lego Indiana Jones trailer in the extras section. After that he can be bought over the counter at 75k studs.

    There is no online content whatsoever. However, there is a 2P co-op mode where you both finish the chapter in Story or Free Play mode, or the arena where P1 VS P2 for control of the universe.

    Overall, this game is fun and enjoyable. However, don’t bet on finishing this game 100%, it could take you months. Definitely a must have for Star Wars Fans (to arouse the interest in kids). I give it a 8 out of 10.

    Gameplay: 8.0 (lack of camera control)
    Fun-level: 8.0
    Graphics: 7.0 (they’re lego…)
    Music: 8.0 (standard Star Wars soundtrack)
    Replayability: 9.0 (different modes)
    Online quality: N.A.
    Overall score: 8.0
