Introduction

There’s something that works really well with LEGO Star Wars series. The developers of the game blended two different brands to form something familiar but equipped it with a refreshing feel. This effort pulled off a miracle by smashing all those licensed labels out there that do nothing more than robbing into the accounts. The success of LEGO Star Wars and LEGO Star Wars II was merely credited to the unique, but kids-friendly gameplay but it also attracted the mature players and did incredibly well to be placed in their consideration set

Since its inception in 2005, the series has never been a disappointment, and that’s why the newest member of the family,  LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga has all the attention. The third installment of the series does commendably well in pulling one cohesive package of the previous two games. The game has all the essential compilation from being tweaked a bit to bumping up to HD quality and will appeal most to the new entrants who have never played a game at all or to those who have been lurking around after playing just one series or those who don’t own the game.

Features

The game is extremely compelling and has some fascinating features to pull you off. The continuity of the game is simply amazing as it starts from where it predecessors left. The action/puzzle platform takes you down to the memory lane with an exciting story segment and giving you a highlight reel of every movie.

The Mos Eisley Cantina lobby system is expanding brilliantly rather than combining the two games and placing one output. LSW games use to move you between episodes. The game gives you complete control and allows you to roam around as you want, messing up in the junkyard, wander in the two-player arcade arena, or you can simply jump straight into the story mode – that’s lengthy by the way. However, the game is at your dis[posal and you are free to choose and do whatever you want to.

Each episode contains six chapters with the opening chapter open up to you automatically, and you are allowed to skip the chapters, landing directly to your favorite chapter – in case you want to play the chapters you like first. The replayability is simply incredible as you can go around choose any mode you want and skip through the story segment – which you don’t have to limit yourself, and land straight into the mode of your choice. But when you refocus, you’ll be amazed to see that you are not halfway done.

Gameplay

The gameplay is enjoyable at most of the levels. You can choose to play as R2D2, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, and Han Solo and get into lightsaber fights, make complete use of the force and don’t forget to collect LEGO pieces. Well, most missions will require you to finish up and go ahead and that we believe is something admirable.

One thing that’s quite not compelling at all is the challenge to an extent or you can say the game is not that threatening at all. Once the character dies in a level, the studs start to vanish, but immediately it comes back to life, and you move ahead smoothly playing the game. LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Sage is therefore not that attractive in this regard and raises most of the complaints.

Also, there are no time limits associated with any level, and you can be at ease while playing. However, collecting the studs throwing litter is the only real challenge LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga has to offer, and that too isn’t essential for completing the level. Although kids are the real primary audience of the game with such attractive gameplay to offer, the younger audience seems to get attached and to retain such an audience; the game has to be a bit more challenging.

The game is best suited to be played on 2GHz Intel Core Duo iMac with a 128 MB ATI Radeon X1600 graphics processor as suggested by many who played the game on Mac. It is advisable to use this system as it runs smoothly on it with fewer warnings or cautions. As you can see in the image below, the game has such brilliance to showcase and is offering such a commanding gameplay that even in worst cases, the flow would break.

Graphics and Sound Effects

The animations used in the game compelled with impressive graphics and stunning audio quality makes LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga a success nonetheless. The animation is just brilliant and sharper, and the makers have tried hard to make it even better than the previous one. Also, the humor is spot-on, and the sound and audio are just utter brilliance. It’s a complete package, to say the least at almost every level.

Bottom Line

If you were trusting that The Complete Saga would push the arrangement into a new domain, you’d be baffled. Taking care of business, the amusement is a very much cleaned accumulation of a couple of rapidly maturing diamonds. Even under the least favorable conditions, it feels a touch stale, and we trust TT’s forthcoming LEGO-based amusements, LEGO Batman and LEGO Indiana Jones take the thought in a crisp course. So besides the camera controls, not smart studs and a few issues with pacing in a modest bunch of spots, Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga is a big amusement. On the off chance that you’ve held up to this point to attempt Lego Star Wars, this is certainly the diversion to purchase. If you’ve just gone to this remote snap-together cosmic system, you’ve likely observed everything sometime recently.
