Lego Star Wars Review

A brand-new version of Lego Star Wars, The Skywalker Saga, has arrived, with some of those same stories in the old Lego Star Wars. Time has allowed for significant reinvention. These changes enhance the familiar Lego action and adventure gameplay with more engaging and fun play. The Skywalker Saga’s gameplay offers a new perspective. The old overhead camera is now an over the shoulder view that makes you closer to the life-like effects of the gameplay, like the lightsaber duels. You have more control over your player now without increasing the difficulty. Its action is straightforward and easy, while its puzzles are difficult at times. It’s still fun to experiment with new button combinations to see special moves that are unique to each player, making you put more time and dedication into the game. The Skywalker Saga has a great aesthetic with much detail included. The lighting, in my opinion, is a lot better, making it easier to see in different climates. The Skywalker Saga shows an example of all the lessons learnt along the way while also setting up for the future. The new camera angle and expanded combat give light to a familiar recipe, while the linear levels feature a pleasing mix of puzzles and combat with occasional comedic relief. It’s a gift that the saga gives the same excitement into the side content that makes up most of the explorable hubs, which can take the thrill out of hunting down every unlockable character. But when The Skywalker Saga finds its stride, and it often does, it can be one of the most enjoyable ways to rediscover a famous franchise once again.
