LEGO Star Wars The Skywalker Saga is perfect for young

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is perfect for young and old

There have been quite a few different LEGO games released in recent years. The success of the series once started with the Star Wars games, which I still played on the Xbox 360 at the time. With LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, you have the latest title. One that presents you with the stories of the nine different films, but in a LEGO jacket.

In that respect, it seems that LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga has come full circle quite a bit. Where the developer once started with Star Wars, there it is now releasing probably the best game in the series. This is a title that is truly delightful to play. In doing so, it doesn’t really matter what age you are or if you are a hardcore fan of the movies or not. In doing so, these are the points that struck me.

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga Review

Nice amount of content

If you want a game that you can let loose with for a long time, then LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is the right game for you. You can experience the different storylines of the nine films in a LEGO world and that alone is good for many hours of fun. Moreover, after completing certain parts it is possible to play it again to find out all the secrets you have missed. As if that wasn’t enough, there are also many different side stories to discover in the game, which will get you even more out of it. You get a lot of value for money.

Playing together is a lot better

The LEGO games are really ideal to play together. Especially when you as a parent want to play a fun game with your child. This is really an ideal game for that, because you hardly get stuck and always respawn when you lose. In the previous games, the developer chose to put both players on one screen and when you went too far from each other, that the screen was split horizontally. But that caused chaos quite often. In that respect, it’s nice that in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga you just have a standard vertical split screen and have clarity with your own screen that way.

Gameplay is well put together

And then when you start playing, you notice that the gameplay of LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is well put together. If you purely follow the story, then you get a lot of familiar moments from the movie that you can replay. Then, when there is action, you get to work with the various characters and either fight it out or shoot from a distance. In addition, it is good to see that opponents react to what you do. For example, they build barricades of different LEGO blocks to hide behind and open fire on the player. Outside of the action, there are also many puzzles. Very difficult they are not, but just interesting enough to stop and see what it takes.

Humor is top notch

In a lot of LEGO games, you’ll see that the developer incorporates all sorts of jokes into them. They are nods to how the movies are or just funny moments. LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is really full of them too. The chances of you rolling on the floor from laughing are slim, but the many winks allow you to appreciate what the developer is doing with the game. Certain violent moments in the films are at once a lot kinder on the younger players, and that’s only a good thing.

Dutch support in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga

One of the finer points I noticed while playing LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is that the game has the Dutch language. The movies and such are all in English, but the subtitles ensure that gamers who aren’t as fluent in the language can still follow the story via the subtitles. And that makes sense, because the game is primarily intended for the somewhat younger gamers. Especially with the gameplay where you actually never die is nice. Nintendo could learn a thing or two from that. Their Pokémon games should really just do this too, but they still don’t.
