LEGO is back with a brand new LEGO game based on the Star Wars IP. Here is our LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga Review.
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is developed by TT Games and published by Warner Bros. Games. The game was released on April 5, 2022, for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
After multiple delays, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is finally playable and it was worth the wait. The game spans over all 9 movies and a massive open world to explore that might even be bigger than the levels themselves. The game is a sight to behold unlike any other LEGO game we have seen before, building onto the LEGO Movie 2 game, this game takes the open world approach to some of the storytelling to the next level mixed with some classic styles of LEGO gameplay with 5 levels for each movie.
The game perfectly follows the story of the movies and while there is nothing to complain about in terms of world-building, it does miss some extra things that we could have had like a bit of story based on the Clone Wars or other side stories of the Star Wars universe, mainly due to the removal of the usual level pack DLC, I just expected more side levels.
While the game does a pretty good job of telling the story of the game, I did get a tiny bit confused with the final 2 movies. This can honestly have multiple reasons, I have not seen those movies, I hear those movies aren’t great, or finally, the game just didn’t do a good job telling those stories, but I’m betting on the 2nd reason. This didn’t take anything away from the rest of the game, because each level and movie does a pretty good job telling you the story of the movies.
The gameplay also changed a lot compared to the previous games combing the character select from the classic games and the gadget system of the LEGO Movie 2 game and mashing them into 1. So there are not a few character types where all the characters basically do the same thing with only a few small exceptions like Boba Fett has a booster pack while the other bounty hunters don’t and BB8 is small and fits through small spaces. The combat also changed a lot taking more of a 3rd person approach with its characters with blasters. The combat took a little bit to get used to but once it clicked, it felt a lot better than the older LEGO games.
The updated visuals really draw you into the game and never looked better, the light shading is near perfect and everything feels like it isn’t really Lego at times but more realistic with how they decided to make the game look. With all the Star Wars music from the movies, it did feel really nostalgic having played the previous lego star wars games and this game should have been the ultimate lego star wars game.
