Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy (YAY!)

That's right, the very addictive game that keeps you glued to your seat and brings you closer to your lego sets is back, and this time it's about classic movies from the 1970s that we all love. The original Lego Star Wars was a game that took you as Star Wars characters made out of Legos through lego the three Star Wars prequels (for more info on all of this, read my review here or here.) In the game, they had an unlockable that let you play about half of Star Wars Ep. IV, but it wasn't really much. Now they have a new game that takes you on a journey through the original three movies (IV, V, & VI)! This game brings so much more to the table from is predicesor though.

First off, the different movies. As I said, this game takes place through Star Wars Ep. IV: A New Hope, Star Wars Ep. V: The Empire Strikes Back, and Star Wars Ep. VI: Return of The Jedi (or Revenge of the Jedi for you guys who are like that.) You will be traveling through every planet and play most of the characters from these movies. You now have Leia, Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, and all of the characters from these movies and over 100 of them are playable.

Speaking of the characters, there is a great new feature. Lego Free Play mode. You can take lego pieces and build your own or take pieces from excisting characters and put them together making characters such as, "Leia Wan Kenobi", "Yodabaca", and many others that you can all use. You can also build tons of pretty, legoey, vehicles that you can only dream of. Your Yoda could be driving in style in his Sith Death Star Escalade, or his Millenium Falconbird. Great new features.

Well all I can say is that I really can't wait for this game. It's going to be great. I hope it is longer than the first one though. Definitely can't wait for this title, hitting the Xbox, Xbox 360, PS2, PSP, GBA, PC, GameCube, and Nintendo DS this fall. Zam, out.

  • First off, that top picture is pretty cool. I like that a lot. Second, did the first SW Lego come out for the DS

  • No, it wasn't. Who knows why, it would have probably sold a bunch of copies on that platform with the smaller kids and the Nintendo fanboys.

  • I checked earlier. It came out for the GBA. I might pick that up and then get this second one as well.

  • I think the DS came out after the first game, I'm not sure though. If you're going to pick it up, I'd get it on a console or PC, it's much better.

  • Actually no, it didn't come out before the DS, but that is a good theory. They probably just didn't feel like making a DS version because that would take more time for Edios because, I guess, they needed time to make a new Tomb Raider game or something. But as I said before, they would have made more if they would have put it on the DS.
