LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga

released on Apr 05, 2022

Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is a third-person action-adventure with an open world hub. Unlike previous Lego games in which players had to advance through the story in a linear order, players can now choose to start the game from any of the main Skywalker Saga episodes and complete them in any order they wish. Each episode has their own hub filled with planets featured prominently in each respective film that can be visited and explored. Each episode will have five story missions each, a total of 45 levels.

Combat has also been revamped, such as lightsaber fights now involving a variety of combos with light attacks, heavy attacks, and Force moves, and blaster characters having an over-the-shoulder camera angle featured in many third-person shooter games.

Random encounters will also happen in the game's hub. For example, an Imperial Star Destroyer will suddenly jump out of hyperspace and send a fleet of TIE Fighters after the player. Players can choose to engage in dogfights with them or continue onward to progress the story. The game will have more than 200 playable characters, though TT Games has said that number will change.

This one is a mixed bag. I'm not a huge fan of LEGO games, let alone Star Wars in general, so I was a bit skeptical whether I would like this or not when I started it, but as far as LEGO games go, this is pretty good (not that there haven't been any good ones in the past.) Though part of me is left wishing other franchises LEGO has tackled would be given such treatment as Star Wars. I think this new style both suits and doesn't suit the LEGO games, like as if it almost wants to be something else, in most cases kinda doing away with what drew people to the older LEGO games.
As coverage of the Star Wars films, it's pretty average. For someone returning to the franchise, it's fun to see this game's take on certain scenes and to experience a bit of nostalgia, but as a newcomer, it's a pretty awful way to experience them which I'd say is a given in any case, but some of the narrative is just completely skimmed over and even in plots I was familiar with, I didn't know what the fuck was going on. But, as much as it wants to be, this is very much not a narrative driven game for me. By definition, it is, and again, it really wants to be, but it's just not. It tries too hard, rushes things and feels very disconnected between each trilogy.
It's a fun past time, especially with the dumbed down gameplay that doesn't really offer much outside of simplicity. All the boss fights are the same, a few are just added with a few bells and whistles to make it seem different, but there's not much of a variety at all. What really took me back with this game was how it looked and how authentic all the environments were. I was more mesmerized by the atmosphere than I was the actual gameplay/narrative.
But, in general, it's a solid experience. It has it's flaws, but it's not awfully made nor is it expertly crafted, it's just good. A nice experience that is probably even nicer with friends (but I don't have any)

A very generous 4-star rating as while the game is fun, the levels are so short and the open world is kinda waaay too stretched out and filled with seemingly endless menial tasks. By the time I finished the story for all 9 Episodes, I didn’t have much incentive to search for more shit or unlock every character. Most every upgrade is practically useless since the game is so easy dying has such little penalty as you respawn instantly anyways. The game brought back a lot of the charm from the early LEGO games, and the voice acting here is actually not completely awful as was the case in a lot of the more modern LEGO games. While the game world is way too overcrowded at times with things to collect and missions to complete, the attention to detail is incredible for any Star Wars fan in the amount of references and gags poking fun of the series’ history is a delight to experience.

é legal? até certo ponto sim, depois só fica chatinho mesmo
fazer 100% história é cansativo e nao estou nem um pouco afim de sair explorando o mapa

Pales in comparison to the original
