Lego video games have been released for a long time, some of the most popular being spins on popular, well-known media. In these games, you get to play through the Lego world of Harry Potter or Indian Jones as your favorite characters, collecting items and breaking blocks along the way. These Lego games have found great popularity – they make for simple enjoyment and easy gameplay for anyone interested.
The newest game, Lego Star Wars: the Skywalker Saga, was released in early April, paying homage to the previous Lego Star Wars games. In the new saga, you can play through all nine of the main movies either by yourself or with a partner.
As you play there are over 300 characters to collect and you can play as anyone you want while you visit famous locations and collect studs and Kyber bricks. After playing through the main missions, the map opens up, allowing you to visit anywhere in the galaxy to explore.
For those who played the previous games, the new saga is an upgraded version of a very nostalgic experience. And for those, like me, who didn’t know Lego games like this existed, it’s a surprising amount of fun. The puzzles are simple but engaging, sometimes causing you to switch characters in order to use a certain machine or speak a different language. Personally, I’ve enjoyed playing as Darth Vader, breaking everything with the force as I run around.
The new saga is a great game and one I highly recommend. If you’ve ever wanted to run through the Star Wars universe, this Lego version is a wonderful way to do it. I also recommend taking advantage of the co-op options and playing with a partner. Overall, playing this game has been surprisingly enjoyable and is currently one of my favorite things to do.
