There have been plenty of Star Wars games already made for
Playstation, but this is the first one where the characters are made of
Lego! It is an action/adventure type of game like most of them, based on
Episodes I, II and III of the Star Wars films, only there is added fun
because everything is made of Lego.
behind the game is to take part in the heroic battles from the three films.
You start as Qui-Gon Jinn on the Trade federation battle station in Episode
I, where you have to fight your way off the station. Each individual battle
involves many characters from the films, from heroes like Obi-Wan Kenobi and
Mace Windo, through to the dark side with Darth Maul (Episode I) and the
four lightsabered General Grievous from the most recent film.
have a choice of two modes to play, story mode where you follow the epic
story for each film, or free play mode where success in each battle gives
you coins to buy and unlock other characters. Each battle is its own level
and to advance to new levels in the free play mode you must have completed
that level in the story mode first.
The game is fun, with
three difficulty choices from easy which will help the beginner, through to
hard which will challenge the master.
The graphics are brilliant considering everything in the game from the
characters to the environment is made of Lego. As a result, when you kill
another character or use ‘the force’ to move objects or damage the
environment around you, everything breaks into pieces like real Lego would.
Overall these Lego pieces are small, smart and stylish.
sounds in the game are when you use your lightsaber or your guns. On the
whole though, the sound is okay, but nothing special.
There are 18
levels; including 1 final special level you come to when you have completed
all the levels in the game (you will have to find out what it is for
yourself, but its well worth finishing the game in order to reach the grand
finale). Despite the 18 levels and free play mode, the game could still
offer more to the player, as its lifespan is a bit limited.
Wars is a top class game, and really fun to play, but is a little too short
for my liking. If there had been more levels overall, and possibly more
difficulty levels (easy is too easy, hard is too hard) the score would have
Overall Score: 85%
