LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy review
Lego Star Wars II
With Lego Star Wars I being a major hit among Star Wars fans, young and old, it was without a doubt that the sequel would be an extremely good game. For people that want to go through the game without focusing on what the game is really about (finding coins and mini-kit pieces) then they may have to look somewhere else for entertainment but if you're planning on playing the game properly then you're sure to find everything you need in the game. It's much harder to get all the coins in an environment now compared to LSWI (Lego Star Wars I) but this is good thing because it'll give you a real sense of joy when you eventually complete it.
One major addition to LSWII is the option to create your own characters using Lego pieces. With the ability to create a Darth Leia, there is a lot of fun to be had in creating your own Star Wars characters, especially when Leia's "kinky outfit" is floating about in the list of options. Another major addition is the ability to construct certain vehicles, using Lego Bricks, mid-mission. This adds another level of enjoyment to the game and certainly helps you get through certain parts of the game that you might find challenging. Other additions include being given the option to import all the characters from LSWI to LSWII, new Bounty Hunter and time-trial side-missions and the ability to construct items using non-jedi characters. The Bounty Hunter missions are very entertaining indeed but you do need to have a knowledge of the environment you are searching in or you can easily fail the mission.
There are some negative issues with the game though. One aspect of the game, which needs to be improved, is the control of the characters. It is possible to become used to the way they move across the level but, for beginners of the game, it can be a real pain when you suddenly fall of an edge even though you thought you were moving correctly. Add to this the fact that camera angles aren't as good as they could be and it becomes more of a challenge than necessary. An option to change between the current camera angle and a different one (third person view for example) would have made LSWII a contender for a 5/5 mark.
Overall though, the game is a must buy for any Star Wars fans, especially those of the younger generation. The pros override the cons in this title and, at around £19.99, it's definitely value for money.
