Review of Lego Star Wars The Skywalker Saga

“A Surprise, Yes, But a Welcome One”

Many video games attempt to emulate this style right now. “realistic,” “gritty,”It is stressful, it can be just plain stressful. However, these are not words that I associate Lego Star WarsThe Skywalker Saga. Not even close. It was far from my best.

It does many great things. My favorite part of the game were its visuals. I found the graphics to be both amazing and original. While playing the game, I was imagining myself as a boy growing up with large eyes. Lego Star Wars set. With my miniaturefigs, I’m reenacting movie plotlines. It was a great feeling. It felt good.

These Lego pieces are just a small part of what makes the Lego world great. Lego Star WarsSkywalker Saga is so realistic looking that it’s hard to imagine a game more like it. Each iconic film location is beautifully rendered. It’s far more than I could have expected for a game like this. 

They are not over. You might call them “reality” “outdated.”These stories are refreshingly reimagined by Lego’s unique humor throughout the entire collection. I was having a lot of fun and found myself smiling more times than I believed. I wasn’t prepared for the sheer joy I would have watching all these Lego setpieces explode into their tiny brick parts.  

After an intense dogfight, the Trade Federation Battleship exploded and I was stunned. My jaw dropped. It is a spectacle like no other AAA game.  

The only problem I have with Lego Star WarsSkywalker Saga: This was how the story was told. Too short. I can understand TT Games’ desire for older players (and Star Wars nerds), as well as children with shorter attention spans. This is a minor point and not indicative of the game’s overall quality.

While the ocean is vast, the puddles of the ocean are as tiny as the sea.

Watch Dogs Legion was a pioneer in allowing you to play as any person, with no restrictions. It was a novel idea that may or not have worked in Ubisoft’s hacking game. However, Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga’s version has a stronger version. The game features a large number of unlockable characters. Each character has their own skill set, making them unique. You can accomplish this feat without it feeling boring.  

TT Games was able to make sure that each character had their own skill set, regardless of whether they were a Jedi, Bounty Hunter, or Protocol Droid. I was often a Jedi because I know how to distinguish Anakin Skywalker’s playstyle and that of Master Yoda and Mace Windu. 

It is overall stronger than I anticipated. One of the best examples is boss fights. You could just push buttons and get rid of everything. You can’t do that with Lego Star WarsThe Skywalker Saga. Strategy was essential. You’ll often be accompanied by an AI-controlled companion to help you get through a difficult fight. Your job? To open doors, solve problems and kill enemies. What’s the problem? The problem? Their AI is brain-dead.

The sequence was interesting and I got a break from all of the lightsaber fighting. The sequence would be much less interesting if I were just shooting lightsabers at someone.   

Let’s talk about puzzles to wrap things up. Uncharted gave my PTSD so I don’t like puzzles in games. I’m getting old. “git gud”I am terrible at solving these puzzles, and don’t have enough time to think through them. These are the things that I love about puzzles. Lego Star WarsThe Skywalker Saga puzzles provide a fantastic balance between challenge and enjoyment. This was what stood out for me once more.  

Repetition is the only problem. You will be more interested if you’ve seen the nine films. This is a tiny flaw in a fantastic design that TT Games only can do so much.

See the power

This one was a labor of love for TT Games. It runs stable at 30 FPS with native 1080p resolution on the base PS4. The frame rate may drop if the game is too heavy. Sometimes the resolution was a bit too low in some cases (maybe below 720p in certain situations), but overall it’s a smooth and crisp game. 

Although I could have expected more, I may have underestimated the demands of the game’s engine on my hardware. Even with a mechanical HDD, loading times were extremely fast. Sometimes I thought the game loaded faster than an SSD at times, but I don’t know.
