Our Score: 9/10

In LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, the galaxy is your playground. With a unique LEGO sense of humour, reimagine iconic scenes and relentless action from all nine films in the Skywalker Saga.

In A Galaxy Far Away

By enthusiastically reimagining lightsaber gameplay, producing magnificent level designs, and introducing novel material.  Such as spaceship dogfights, exciting side missions, and mysteries to unearth. The Skywalker Saga reignites the spark left by classics such as LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga in 2007. The Skywalker Saga contains all nine episodes of the Star Wars universe, although only three are available at the start of a new session. When compared to The Complete Saga, there are significant graphical improvements and rewritten stories. Which may provide a sense of nostalgia for returning gamers without feeling like a reskin.

The Skywalker Saga Imperial Marching Into Modern Day

The destructible environments are one of the most gratifying features of The Skywalker Saga. It feels fantastic to smash LEGO bricks into one another with the Force. And it gives you a sense of true impact and collision. It never gets old breaking down tall constructions with a lightsaber and collecting the studs. Picking up and hurling objects at enemies is a lot of fun. Especially when your opponents are shattered into many LEGO bricks by a powerful Force Push.

With a lightsaber, players can disassemble, disarm, and decapitate adversaries. Only to see the head of a vanquished Stormtrooper roll across the field, symbolising yet another sweet triumph. When it comes to fighting, The Skywalker Saga features a combo system that grows in value. As the player performs a wide range of assaults, motivating you to mix and combine different actions and powers. The Skywalker Saga’s fighting system is incredibly smooth. And it allows the player to fully feel at one with the Force, thanks to reinvented assault animations.

Old Jedi Texts

Characters in previous LEGO games would use props and body language to add to the context of their discussions. The Skywalker Saga, on the other hand, does not do so, leaving cutscenes and gameplay mechanics untouched. Minor modifications to character animations may justify the use of mumble mode more efficiently. But after 10 minutes of my own mumble mode experience, I believe the original dialogue is the best option. It’s frustrating that such a nostalgic feature is best left alone for the time being. But it’s good that the designers thought of something to rekindle my inner child’s passion for earlier games in general and this feature in particular.

Mumble mode, a throwback to a time when Star Wars characters didn’t have voice boxes. And communicated with grunts, grumbles, and the occasional facial emotion, may appeal to LEGO fans. Character communication is replaced with nonsensical noises during games and cutscenes, allowing gamers to relive the actual LEGO experience, as The Skywalker Saga proposes. Grumbles and mumbles, on the other hand, don’t appear to go well with cutscenes that are plainly created for dialogue.

The Force Within The Skywalker Saga

The Skywalker Saga allows players to explore space outside the planets that make up the game’s world, with its own set of side missions and encounters. Players can enter into dogfights between two factions and aid one side gain an advantage over the other for some additional studs because they control a variety of spaceships. Kyber Meteors move through the nothingness of space and can be destroyed, rewarding the player with a vast number of Kyber Bricks, which can be used to upgrade abilities.

The ship controls are fluid, and players can effortlessly navigate through space by using both thumbsticks to make tighter spins when fighting adversaries. Hearing the classic laser sound when blasting airborne enemies before they collapse into exploding dust is enough to give me a wonderful triumph feeling. Aside from the dark vacuum of space, the planets that populate it are breathtaking, and the designers have done an outstanding job producing such intricate appearances in a game based on the LEGO foundation.

Final Verdict

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is a fantastic game that is a must-play if you’re a fan of Star Wars or of LEGO games. The game itself is incredibly fun to play and expands on the classic LEGO games formula. And the writing and voice acting is fantastic and will immediately suck you in.
