lego star wars

April 28, 2005

My parents gave my son (at my behest) the Lego Star Wars game for the Xbox. The kid loves his Star Wars and this game is a true all-ager. Blood? Nope, just Legos flying. It really follows the storylines of Episodes I and II (I haven’t gotten into III yet — but it’s here also). The cinematics are right out of he films, except Lego-ized. Very impressive work.It’s a two player game, and you can drop in and out in the middle of a scene. If he gets stuck, dad can jump in and help (and vice versa). Lots of puzzles and a nifty way of using the Force to accomplish tasks.

There are a lot of secrets and its a deep game. It’ll take a lot of time to unlock all of the hidden stuff — he’ll be playing this one for a long time (especially with the 30-minute limit per day).

I give it an 8.5 (and a 9 thinking as a kid). I think it’s also available for PC, Playstation 2 and Game Boy Advanced.

Good stuff.
