This game is put simply- amazing!!
Star wars meets lego and my god do they work so incredibly well together.
The game focuses on all 6 epsiodes of the film and recreates them all brilliantly. Every character being made into a lego man is just clever, commical and entertaining.
As you go through level by level the more bricks you destroy the more studs you collect. (very common in lego sets)
So there are a set number per level which you need to collect, if you get them all you will recieve extra special goodies. The same goes for finding the red brick which is hidden within every level but is hard to find.
The levels vary in length and difficulty, the really cool thing is on every level you can change your character into one of five/six others. The idea behind this is to make sure you dont have 6 other lego men running around with you. Keeps the screen uncluttered. A great help.
The lego series of games have really gotten hold of many people because they are suitable for anyone who likes lego and if you like star wars all the better.
There is adult humour in the game too which is good to see.
A definate winner in terms of great gameplay, smooth graphics and best of all everything is made of lego- what more could you ask for?
Believe it or not, up until a few months ago I had never watched any of the Star Wars movies - Criminal isn't it. But thankful that has all been remedied now and I furthered my 'Star Wars Geekiness' by adding LEGO Star Wars the Complete Saga to my collection of Xbox 360 games.
Firstly I'll start off by describing how they have integrated Lego into the game. Basically all the backgrounds, characters, vehicles, weapons - absolutely everything - is made out of Lego. Graphically this all looks really slick and cool and surprisingly is done in quite an adult format so as not to look too childish.
The game plays through the story line of the movies, from beginning to end, having 6 different scenes for each of the 6 movies - so 32 in all. In each of the 32 scenarios the player can opt to collect different types of Lego bricks or simply finish the mission alive. The bricks you can collect are: miniature Lego bricks silver (10Coins), gold (100Coins) or blue (1000Coins) which when you collect enough, denoted by a % bar top centre of the screen you become 100% Jedi. There is also a red power up brick which you find to unlock new features for purchase. Finally Mini Kits: there are 10 hidden in each level, collect them all to build vehicles.
The game play is quite simple: you shoot the bad guys collect the bricks and get to the end of the level. Each level is riddled with lots of puzzles to complete: only certain characters can open certain doors, jigsaw like puzzles, figuring out how to get to certain areas. As some doors can only be open by certain character you often have to replay missions. The first time you play a level you have to use certain characters that would have been 'there' during that scene in the movie inhibiting you from fully completing the level regarding the bricks. This is called story mode, but once completed opens up free play mode, where you can use any character you have previously played (in any level) or characters you have bought with in game Coins. It is during free play mode that you can fully complete a level by collection all the mini kits and red power brick. I feel this adds a lot of depth to the game and gives it longevity and more purpose.
Amazingly after all the mini kits, red power brick and 100% Jedi have been achieved this opens up yet another play mode! This is called challenge mode and the aim is to collect 10 blue mini kits (note: these are in different locations than they were in free/story mode) within the time limit. There really is plenty in this game to do!
Aside from the actual levels there is a forecourt and bar area's where you start off in the game. In these areas you can select which missions you want to do (note: to start off with you have to do these in chronological order until you unlock free play) by going through different doors, this system is easy to understand and find whatever you want. At the bar you can change settings, buy further character and vehicles with you coins and view you general achievements and play time. In the forecourt, which is basically a mini play area, you can drive around vehicles and interact with different objects for different results.
Each character uses different weapons, has different walking speeds and can access different areas. For example: child Anakin can crawl into small areas, R2D2 can fly over short distances, Jar Jar Binks can jump a lot higher. Most characters are either of the Jedi type, Gunweilding or electronic. This introduces variety into the game and makes playing each level with different character a different experience. I've found that every play develops a favourite character to play and this tends to be who they use in free play mode. As well as the many different characters there are often levels which require a large percentage of play based around controlling a vehicle again introducing more variety into the game.
As well as all the different things to collect and complete in game there are the Xbox 360 achievements to consider. These are quite fun to collect and as well as the typical you have completed this level or that level, killed X number or people, there are achievements such as start a bar fight which involves over 50 people, Chewbacca tears off 30 arms etc. These are fun to stumble across during the game and have provoked a fair few smiles.
My favourite thing about Star Wars the Complete Saga is the amazing 2 player Co-Op. I find this very immersive and fun as it is imperative that both player have to work together to complete things and if you do not you simply cannot complete the game. This works also with Xbox live. But don't worry if you have no plans to play 2player Co-Op as if there is only one player the computer plays the secondary character playing along with you. In addition to the Co-Op there is also a battle mode where 2 players effectively fight each other in different environments.
Overall Star Wars: the Complete Saga is a very action packed game full of different things to do and see. It isn't a game you can fully complete quickly due to the sheer amount of things to do! The game has a PG rating, and although it is based around the LEGO theme I'd say an adult would get more out of this game than a child as I think a child would perhaps not bother to collect all the different brick etc. and not understand how to complete some of the puzzles and this would greatly reduce the length of game play for them. It is a game I would very much recommend, just don't start playing when you know you have to do something thing important!
LSW:TCS is massive improvement on the previous Lego Star Wars games, it includes every single level from Lego Star Wars 1 and 2, it also improves the graphics by adding shading, lighting and reflections.
Really now this game is out, theres no point in buying the previous games of the series, this game has everything they had, and more.
The game adds new force powers such as force choke and force lightning, the game also adds a few new levels, including some bonus levels, a 2 player arcade section were the players fight it out in a deathmatch type arena, another big feature this game adds is a 2 player online co-op feature. There is now 160 characters in total, including Indiana Jones, added to the game to generate interest in the new Lego Indiana Jones game due to arrive the next year.
There pretty much all the changes the game makes to the original games, but this game is definitely worth the purchase.
When the Lego Star wars brand came on the scene, it appealed to quite alot of gamers due to its humour, fun co-op and uniqe art style and so when the original saga came about, it to was a hit but Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga is merely both games combined into one disc (but most fans of this brand would already have 2 discs) with a few minor tweaks.
Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga is the entire Star Wars story with a lego spin on it, everything is constructed of lego peices from moisture collecters to the Death Star and everything has a humourous feel such as the StormTroopers almost skipping around.
The full Star Wars story from Episode I to VI
High interactive enviroment, most things can be destroyed
Fun characters and powers
Lego Star Wars is always played with a friend or A.I character and so there are multiple puzzles that require teamwork to complete and none of the puzzles are that frustrating
In the game you must progress to the end of the level and as you do you may find studs, red bricks or mini kits and in order to complete the game entirley or just get new items and characters, you must try to get as much of the above as possible.
Overall, if you haven't got either of the first two games, try this but if you have both and are hoping for new features ect, don't there are hardly any changes and certainly not any that justify spending another £25.
Ok its a Star Wars game on the Xbox 360 in lego??!?! But wait it is a fantastic game. This was one of the first games that I got on the Xbox 360 after thinking that many of the games were directed at guys! This is not the case, it is the perfect game for all... men, women & children!!
It takes you from the very beginning all the way to the 6 films. There are plenty of levels to keep this game exciting all the way through. This was the game that made me want both Batman & Indiana Jones lego games. You can again play as many different characters, and unlock more as you go through the game. These include characters from Luke Skywalker through to the droids! There are again videos in between the levels and these bring another level to the game, with all the extra funny parts they have put in. There are some great extras with the bonus levels.
The graphics are excellent, I have not found any issues with screens freezing or other glitches which can often occur with games such as this. The only difficulty I have sometimes is the angle of the camera when you are trying to move about.
The achievements which can be gained on this through the Xbox 360 just add to the excitement. They really do make you determined to do the game until they are completed!!
Overall, I think that it is a fantastic game and I recommend for adults and children alike, it is perfectly suitable for all ages and will keep you entertained for hours at a time!
This is a rare thing in the videogames industry, a game aimed at children that is still fun for everyone else.
Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga essentiallly combines the two previous titles in to a single package. It is a remarkably good package considering the quality of the previous games, though perhaps a few extras would have made it perfect.
In the game you will play Lego representations of all your favourite characters and scenes from the six Star Wars films. Events are recreated with authenticity and style and really create a feel for the Star Wars universe despite the humorous angle. The game plays through the films with character and action stages, all of which a second player can join with the press of a button. The game is designed to play just as well with one or two players and can even be played online. A variety of characters with different skills to clear clever puzzles means that Lego Star Wars is also one for thinkers. It is this variety in gameplay that helps make Lego Star Wars so absorbing.
The graphics are beautiful with lovely shiny plastic men inhabiting a very authentic Star Wars backdrop. The effort taken to make sure the Lego fits in with the scenery is highly appreciated and great fun to see and while there are no groundbreaking visuals here, Lego Star Wars looks good and that's all it needs.
As for audio, the incidental music from all the films has returned and even seems timed to match your behaviour. It feels like a real part of the production and not tagged on show tunes. If you have a surround sound system equipped then you can also enjoy Lego Star Wars in 5.1 surround.
Lego Star Wars is a well produced title that both lives up to and exceeds its franchises. It is both a great Lego game and a great Star Wars game. Furthermore it has really helped bring family friendly games back as it is a game kids and adults can enjoy together.
This is out on most platforms so families with games consoles should enjoy getting a copy and playing it together.
This a very worth while game to buy and play, Star wars fans will love it as it sticks very close to the actual films and you don't have to do them in film order except for the first level but once this is completed you have free roam of which episode you play through.
Each episode is divided into 6 chapters which have to be played in order and you basically play through the highlights of each film and anything missed from a film in a level is covered in a animated short which will tend to get you laughing as there are quite humurous.
You don't just have to stick to the story either you can replay levels to try and collect all the minikits and get a certain amount of studs in each level to achive true jedi basically what these do is unlock gold bricks which you use around the games staging area mos eisley canteener to unlock some fun extra levels.
This game is great for Kids to play as the levels are not to taxing and they will love the variety of characters my son would play this game all day if I allowed him to and i quite enjoy this game myself, a definite must buy for any star wars or lego fans
This is one of the funniest games of all time.
This game has everything a Star Wars fan can hope for. The lightsabers, the characters and the comedy of the Lego universe.
The cinematics almost perfectly mirror those of the famous George Lucas classics, The Star Wars Saga.
You can play the levels in one of two ways, the old-school Episodes IV, V and VI first, followed by the new trilogy. Or you can do it Episodes 1 to 6.
The achievements are all pretty run of the mill, and they also allow for you to want to replay other levels with other characters (such as dominating the battle of Hoth with Yoda or fighting Darth Vader with Darth Vader).
If you are a hardcore Star Wars fan, like myself, you will take great relief from knowing that one of the achievements is 20 Gamerpoints for destroying Jar Jar Binks 20 times.... personally that is worth buying the game for in itself.
Lego & Star Wars - two classics rolled into one. This bumper edition pulls together all 6 episodes of the fantastic Lego games which sees you acting out the episodes in full whilst collecting Lego studs and a whole selection of other challenges along the way.
Hidden items and powerups are available as well as being able to purchase characters to then play with (such as Yoda, Chewbacca and R2-D2). The main characters all have unique abilities that are needed at different points on each level and so you often find yourself re-doing levels 2 or 3 times. Some may see this as a flaw or repetitive but i promise you that it isn't. It is hard to find any faults with this game as it's been so lovingly put together, with amusing cut scenes, a huge selection of secrets, characters and things to do you're sure to be hooked for hours like i was.
It is one of few games which, no matter what, i will not get rid of and will end up playing again from the beginning as it really is that addictive. It also features online co-op play if you have Xbox Live. Buy this and you will not regret it.
A long time ago in a galaxy far far away...
No other introduction would do the game or the films justice. One of the greatest licensing deals of all time - Star Wars, global phenomenon - Lego, global phenomenon, put them both together and you have the greatest combination of video game and movie license at your fingertips.
Phew, introduction and bigging up over with...on to the game-play. The basic rules of this game are to follow the storyline from all the Star Wars films, using Lego created characters to do your bidding. You travel through different levels, unlocking characters to assist in your quest. Different characters have different skills, so you need to unlock all of them to be able to complete the game with 100% in all areas.
This game is quite stunning, in the attention to detail stakes, it really hits the mark. If you have seen the films the Lego characters bring a whole new surrealistic and comedic element to both the movie and the game.
To complete this game, will take you hours, the basic completion is not enough for most gamers, so to do the whole thing at 100% will take time, but it's all worth it.
In terms of features, even more has been packed in. Co-Op mode for example brings a brilliant concept to the game, 2 players tasked with using different characters skills together to finish the levels. Online gaming enabled, means playing with friends over Xbox Live is also possible.
All in all, there is nothing bad to say about this game, great fun for the kids, great fun for the purists and so tongue-in-cheek to boot. Put this one on the Christmas list today.
Do you like the combination of a) Solving puzzles, b) Starwars, and c) Lego? If so, then this is the game for you!
LucasArts have designed 'Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga' primarily with kids in mind, but it's an experience which will keep all ages entertained.
As the game's subheading suggests, you can play through the 'complete saga' of films - six in total. Each of the games takes around three hours to complete, with the whole game potentially finished in a day. However, when you've played your way through the story, you can go back and replay each stage with other unlockable characters which can access certain areas unavailable during the first play. This element certainly brings a big replay value to the game, and makes it very good value for money - considering it only costs £15.99.
Graphics are very good - bright and bold without being too ambitious. There are some great floor refections which look spectacular, and also a variety of realistic lighting effects on display.
The cut scenes between levels add humour to the game, and are both well directed and smoothly animated.
The sound is taken straight from the films, and works very well in the game environment. Hearing the original lightsaber and space ship audio effects helps immerse the player into the Star Wars universe.
On the whole the gameplay is fun - albeit basic fun. There are puzzles to solve, although they aren't too difficult. When I first started playing, I wasn't initially impressed, but it's one of those titles where once you familiarize yourself with it, it grows on you.
I recommend this game for all ages and can't wait to play Lego Batman when it's released.
Lego Star Wars The Complete Saga is an action game for the Microsoft Xbox 360 games console.
If you missed out on the first and second Lego Star wars games, this is the package for you. It contains both the original trilogy and the new trilogy of films. The cut scenes in this game are fun and humourous and cover the key events from the movies.
The gameplay is an interesting mix of accessible combat and fun puzzle solving. It is very easy to get into and anyone in your family will easily be able to get into the game and look like they have been playing it for ever.
The graphics in this game are top notch, and it is nice to see the new trilogy have the same graphical quality as the original trilogy.
This game is excellent value and will provide you and your family with hours of fun. You can get this game for about £30.00.
Play across the galaxy as your favourite Star Wars characters - all in Lego! How weird! How cool! What sounds like a weird concept provides for a pretty cool game.
But is it for all tastes? Just for 3 year olds, or will 30 year olds enjoy it too?
Being a Star Wars fan myself my fiancee had bought me, for a laugh, the original Star Wars Lego titles for the PS2. When I switched to the Xbox 360, I got this title as a present too, (how sweet!).
Though in the gaming world I am normally found gunning down Nazis or snipering terrorists I secretly love this game.
As the title suggests the storyline is that of all the Star Wars films, covering the entire Star Wars universe from 'Phantom Menace' to 'Return of the Jedi'.
Each time you turn on the game you begin in the Cantina, (as seen in Episode 4). From here you can access all the levels, (each 'film' has it's own room), check your progress through the game, buy extras etc. It's basically your base of operation.
The gameplay is that of an elaborate platform game, running around collecting as many studs as possible while playing through the various scenes of the films.
There are various items you have to collect.
Lego studs, minikits and red bricks.
Lego studs are found lying all over the place, and from destroying scenery, and are used to buy extras from the Cantina.
There is one red brick in each level, and if found will unlock a new extra to be bought in the Cantina.
There are ten minikits in each level, and some are a job to find!
The extras you can buy range from better weapons, infinite health etc to such comic things as disguises or turning Stormtroopers' guns into carrots!
Each film, or episode, consists of 6 levels, so there are 36 levels in the main body of the game. When you first play a level you can use the characters associated with that part of the film (i.e in the very first level you are Obi Wan). However, upon finishing a level 'Free Play' opens up where you can play the level with any of the characters you've bought from the Cantina. This is essential as there will be minikits you can only get if you have a character with a particular skill. (You can also use your own custom built character.)
Each episode also contains a vehicle level, where you control one of the ships from the film (eg the Snow Speeder on Hoth or the Tie Fighter while doing the Trench Run on the Death Star).
The game is very true to the films. All the characters are there, which you can be a some point during the game. And they all have their various skills and weapons, so if you are Boba Fett you have a jetpack and big gun, if you're a Jedi you have a lightsabre. Oh yes, and you also get to use the Force too!
All the familar music scores are there too, and you get to play on most of the various planets.
The graphics are very good, all cutesy wutesy cartoon style, but still very well done.
I found the game very playable, and addictive, (some of those minikts are hard to find!).
As well as the main body of the game, there are other challenges to do through the levels, plus bonus rooms where you can, say, go on Bounty Hunter missions or run around destroying a Lego 'town'. These I believe give the game a longevity.
Two player wise, you can drop in and out throughout the game in a co-op mode, which is great if you want to play along with your kids or prove to your girlfriend that not all video games are blood and guts. Or you can duel against a friend in choice of location in the Two Player Arcade room.
All in all I really enjoyed this game, its quite comical and has enough to keep you playing for a while.
It is certainly recommended for kids. As for adults, if you are a Star Wars fan then yes. If not, it will be your own personal taste. A number of guys I know turned their nose up at it, however a lot found it a comic relief from all the typical games they would play.
One final warning though, if you have the other two Star Wars Lego titles this game is quite literally the two of them stuck together, the levels are virtually the same.
A great game, I highly recommend it.
Being a massive fan of Star Wars and a big kid at heart, i could not resist but to buy Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga.
I am proud to say that the big kid in me gave in and went ahead with this purchase. This game is sooo good and so funny, will have you in complete stitches of laughter as you see all the classic scenes of all 6 movies captured in anime lego form. It is hysterical to watch!
This game covers the complete story from both Star Wars trilogy's and it runs very smoothly between each chapter of the saga.
All of your fave characters are here, playable from the start and unlock able as you go through the levels.
You can also buy your favourite characters at the Cantina shop, throughout the game you collect studs which is a currency in the Star wars world which you can buy many interesting things. Including as mentioned, your fave characters (160 to choose from), fancy dress items and even flowers.
This game also has a co op mode so you will be able to get your friends over and re create those classic battles. Also has an online co op mode
There has been other lego Star wars games out but the complete sage has both tiltes together with an added bonus of new bonus levels and new challenges
The 360 version has lovely enhanced graphics and some fantastic achievements to unlock along the way.
I would suggest this revamped game to any age group as you will not be dissapointed with this tongue in cheek piece of action!
ItÆs the game that never shouldÆve worked. Normal licensed games are usually bad enough but the game of the toy of the film? Clearly the Force was with developer TravellerÆs Tales though because Lego Star Wars I and II were huge critical and commercial hits that showed that not only could licensed games be good but that titles aimed at kids and the family could be just as innovative and entertaining as any other. Clearly not wishing for any of the new consoles to miss out on the fun this is a compendium of both games with a bunch of new extras thrown in on top. Together the two games cover both the prequel and original trilogy, with each film given six separate levels of its own, one of which is vehicle based. The rest of the levels though are deceptively simple action adventures with a built-in co-operative mode that anyone can join in and leave whenever they want. The combat is simple enough that anyone can play and you never really die, leaving the most complex part of the gameplay the always cleverly designed puzzles.
