AnalysisLEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga

During these years it has been possible to see how LEGO has grown in popularity and reach so much so that many of the great licenses of popular culture have passed through the hands of these Danish plays and figures, such as wonder, Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings, among others.

In fact, the first steps in video games were not only reflected in several titles that took on the task of adapting these licenses with humor and a universe that is already a house brand from Lego but there are physical sets from major franchises, the best-known case being that of lego Mario.

However, focusing on the video games themselves, if there is a saga that is a fetish for Lego it is without a doubt star wars which materialized in different titles that made the rounds of the nine films released in theaters and which tell us the story of the Skywalker from Anakin’s origins to Palpatine’s ultimate defeat at the hands of his own granddaughter.

And it is precisely under this idea that LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga arises, a title that not only serves as the first compilation of nine great stories but does he make it through this content-rich universe, humor and unique building mechanics.

From the threatened ghost to the rise of the Skywalkers

Many already know now that after their purchase Disney trilogy featuring Rey, Finn, and Poe, among other characters finished the skywalker saga this is the name of the 9 films that follow the story since Anakin Skywalker began his Jedi training until the final fall of Palpatine and the death of all descendants of the Tatooine slave.

Under this same principle, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga does not hide his intentions of wanting to tell these stories as they happened, but focuses on the key moments and giving them his particular touch of humor, with scenes like those of Palpatine characterized as Darth Sidious at a time when his identity was still unknown.

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga Focuses On Key Movie Moments

Of course, I would like to clarify that here, at least fundamentally, you won’t find anything outside of the main movies, so you won’t see the characters from The Mandalorian or the Rogue One team or the Han Solo movie or anything like that. Not even the famous clone wars They are extremely popular with fans.

On the contrary, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga aims to offer a concise vision of what we experience in these films. And in that sense, it is both good and bad, since it may be your main negative point.

More is not always better

Maybe the idea of ​​having all 9 movies in the same game is appealing on paper, but the truth is limited persists that here we do not see how the whole saga is told with the care and care that each work deserves, but rather each film is summarized in a one-hour story mode each approx.

This means that the argument is counted in haste, without stopping to assimilate what is happening on the screen. It’s not for nothing, since in just 10 minutes you go from car to Anakin in the pods to face death Darth Maul ends up subtracting the impact on development.

Putting all nine films leads them all to neglect their narrative rhythm

Added to this is the fact that many details are omitted for obvious and understandable reasons since there is no time lost to face other times. It’s because of it scenario the game looks like an abbreviated version that you hand in as a class assignment.

This can be an important pothole for anyone who wants to give the saga a chance and this is their first contact since they could be forced to see story summaries on the Internet in order to understand what is happening on the screen. Of course, in case you have a particular order, know that you can play the trilogy in the order you prefer, which is appreciated from the start.

The excellence of free mode and humor

Apart from this small parenthesis, it must be said that LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga It has these stories as a great initial ballast, being from its end where the authentic adventure begins. And it goes through free mode which is the true essence that hides this title and of which it can unleash your full potential.

Indeed, once it is available, we will have the possibility of exploring the rich world of Star Wars, both for its settings and for its characters. Indeed, it is recommended to leave the exploration for the end since it is enjoyed much more without needing to go through the narrative process that is history.

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga Asks You To Complete As Soon As Possible To Enjoy Freemode

Also, one could say that at TT Games, they were aware of this because there are areas that we cannot access at the beginning because we need a character who, due to the story itself, we still do not have increasing this fact in the presence of Markers which constantly point to the next point to continue the plot.

However, despite the fact that the story sounds like a procedure that is certain that LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga manages to stay cool thanks to a house brand humor that ends up explaining situations without logic even in the movies.

Everyone is here

Similarly, far from focusing on the 3 great protagonists of each trilogy logo Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga highlights its entire legacy and all the characters that have been added over the decades and movies.

That is why we will not only have to drive Obi-Wan, Anakin, Luke, read, King, and Finnishamong others that appear most of the time on screen, but it will be essential to be able unlock all maps go with the characters that we will obtain, as well as improve them through multiple skills that we will be able to acquire little by little.

This manages to give the title variety in its cast and gameplay since, although some are more limited than others, you don’t always have to be with a lightsaber being able to wield a pistol that focuses more on ranged combat, as well as the different uses given to the Force which, it must be said, goes too well with build mode.

Duels, war zones and all kinds of battles across the galaxy

For its part, It’s not a Star Wars game without a dark side. who to beat, enter here the fightsince the title boasts of large groups of enemies that they will put us on the ropes, which will force us to defeat them either in face-to-face combat or by the planeeither the Millennium Falcon or one of the TIE Fighters.

In fact, there will be many times when we will see how good the goal is kill a certain number of enemies to be able to advance, therefore not having to shoot or attack randomly, but rather it will be necessary to concentrate on certain visual elements.

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is designed to be enjoyed in company

Also, despite the fact that I did not have the opportunity, I must say that I had the constant feeling that LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga It’s much more enjoyable in company, whether it’s the smallest in the house or a Star Wars fan who can pick up on every reference that’s left behind.

On the other hand, the options free mode They even seem designed to pass control from player to player, so everyone has the ability to explore this world.

The technical part and the dubbing are remarkable

Having said that, we have to get into the realm of the technical plan, speaking of graphics and sound. Starting with its visual aspect, it goes without saying that LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga it does not seek to revolutionize the industry with a graphic powerhouse rich in realistic detail.

However, this does not take away from the fact that, based on the figures themselves, the character designs are amazingto the point that many can be easily identified with the features and limitations of LEGO, making great use of lights and shadows which, on the other hand, do not completely explode with the scene.

Also, it must be said that with regard to sound partI can only draw praise from what I heard during the hours of play, having here not only a great role john williams and his work, but also a dubbing which in Spanish has a large part of the cast of the films

In this way the game duration It’s the one you put on, although you know that each film can last approximately one hour. On the other hand, to the extent that difficulty we don’t care, it’s not too demanding a title, which can easily lead him to get bored quickly, especially if we’re not with the little ones.

Is LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga worth it?

To be clear, I have to say that LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga It’s not a title for everyone. Maybe if you’ve played the previous titles, this one doesn’t have much to contribute with the fact that having to pass 9 story modes of about 1 hour starting good is a moment that not everyone can afford, especially adults.

Yet I see that It’s a title made with care and aimed mainly at a slightly more childish audience, being the ideal gateway to the saga for a new generation. That doesn’t mean that if you’re over 18 you won’t enjoy it, but the truth is that playing it reminded me of those times when I didn’t mean to finish a game just to finish itbut squeeze it and spend dozens of hours even if it only lasted 5.

It’s the simple fact of having fun because that’s what we seek, without more worries than those of childhood, discover a new and incredible universe. And it is right here that these parents who are fans of star wars they can find a title to spend time with their children.

For all this I can only say that Give it a chance if you’re a Star Wars fan I parents who want to introduce their children in an organic and accessible way for them. And despite what has been said, it’s not something that should only be governed by age, since, as happened to Anakin, Luke and Rey, It’s never too late to become a Jedi.
