Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy Review!

A few day ago, in a place that's not too far....


Episode II
Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy Review

I was alone on night on my PS2 not doing much. Then I looked up at my PS2 game collection and saw the cover to one of my favorite games of all time, Lego Star Wars. I thought, man, what a game; if only there was another one. But then I hear a croaky voice.

It was little Lego Yoda, and he said "Strong with Lego Star Wars you are, Lego Star Wars II, play you must." "After play, write review for GM2 you also must." So I said, "Of course Lego Yoda" and here's the review........

Yes, the review to the sequel of the FIRST GAME EVER reviewed on GM2 is now here. (Lego Star Wars Review). Now Lego Star Wars got our highest review of 5 out of 5, but can Lego Star Wars II live up to that? Well I'll tell you........after this commercial break. Just kidding, I'm not gonna pull a Seacrest on you. I'm really gonna tell the end of the review. Anyway, the rest of the review.

Let's start with the story. Basically, you play through the original three Star Wars movies (Episode IV, V, & VI). You play as a lot of the characters in LEGO form of course. Each episode has 6 chapters. But unlike the first game, these chapters are nice and long. And all of the environments and characters (basically everything) is made of LEGOs. The chapters all start out with that famous Star Wars scrolling thing that tells the story of it. And it has the famous Star Wars theme too.

The graphics are really good for Lego's. It's amazing how if you go buy a set of a Star Wars ship and build it, it's built probably exactly like in the game. I think it's cool how they can do that. But it's really awesome.

You unlock the good guys in every level, but the other guys, you have to buy once you either see them in a cut scene, or defeat them. It's kinda costly, but kinda worth it in Free Play Mode (which you unlock after you beat that level/chapter). You also have to buy vehicles. That kinda stinks. (By the way, in my opinion, Boba Fett and Han Solo kick the most ass in this game.) Oh, and also, you can customize two of your own characters, but what I found is you can only play them in Free Play, but its pretty cool.

Like in the first one, you have to collect studs and 10 minikits in each level. The minikits build stuff, and the studs are used to buy things at the store.

A new thing is there thought. There's now gold and red blocks. There's one red block in each level, and about 4 possible gold blocks in each level. There are different places in the lobby of the game (Mos Esley Cantina) which can build passageways. Mostly, a challenge mode for the levels. It's pretty hard, but pretty cool.

The cut scenes are good and very humerous. So they're very enjoyable.

So overall, the game is definitely as good as the first one, if not better. If you played the first game, go get up and drive down to your local game store, and pick this one up. If you haven't played the first one, JUMP UP, AND DRIVE AS FAST AS YOU CAN WITHOUT BREAKING THE LAW TO YOUR LOCAL GAME SHOP AND HAVE THE CASHIER SMACK YOU A FEW TIMES, THEN BUY BOTH! Ok, so everyone who needs some good fun, pick this one up. Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy gets 5 Lego Jedi's enjoying the sight of Lego Slave Leia, out of 5.



  • Am I having a really bad case of deja vu or was this posted once before? If not, I seriously am having some serious deja vu.

  • Nope D, I think you're either thinking of the preview or the review of the first one.

    This review is about 30 minutes old so I doubt you've seen it before..
