Lego Star Wars 2: The Original Trilogy
Everyone loves Star Wars, I can say that without fear of contradiction because this is my blog and I’ll just delete any dissenting opinions 🙂 Equally, everyone loves Lego. Therefore, it goes without saying that everyone loves Lego Star Wars. Right?
Now that the prelims are out of the way and we’re all on the same page, let’s continue. I own a Sony PlayStation 2 and a Nintendo DS Lite. When I can find a game that has been released for both platforms, it is a good thing. So I went out and bought (actually, bought via the internet) the game Lego Star Wars 2: The Original Trilogy.
My criteria for gaming is fairly simple – I want to be entertained and I want to enjoy the game without having to play it religiously every minute of the day until it’s cleared. This game ticks both boxes. The game is aimed at years 3 and over, so it’s quite obvious that parents are supposed to play this too. It has 2 modes: story and freeplay. The story mode follows, relatively closely, the films. The cutscenes are hilarious and well put together. For example, since there are no voices in the game, the cutscenes work with little jokes and mime. In The Empire Strikes Back, the scene in which Darth Vader tells Luke that he is his father is recreated here by Darth showing Luke a polaroid of Darth and Padme.
The gameplay is wonderful with a variety of puzzles of different levels – in some, you can only complete them in freeplay and with a character not from that scene, in others you simply have to “kill” a set number of stormtroopers or AT-ATs. Hours of fun.
Buy this game.
