Lego Star Wars II 

 

Just last issue I reviewed the first Lego Star Wars video game (which contained Star Wars episodes I, II, and III). Lego Star Wars II contains Star Wars episodes IV, V, and VI. The theme of Legos is continued. This version is a little more violent than the first one, and carries an ‘E10+’ rating as opposed to an ‘E’ rating of the first game. Blasters, and light sabers are joined by some interesting new ships to fly around with. The usage of vehicles is greatly expanded upon in the sequel. Many of the puzzles are much easier this time around though.

The graphics in Lego Star Wars II are on par with the original, but may have been cleaned up a little. The facial displays are still a little disappointing, and the game tries to be lustful with the infamous Princess Leia’s bikini. It is painted on a Lego flat chest, and does not reach the level of enticement to lust in my book. The violence is more often, but it is also Legos falling apart, so I do not get too excited over that.

The very well known Star Wars orchestra music is found within this game, and the sounds are just grunts, and tweets. There is some crude humor in those sounds. Like I said in the last issue I wish there was some better sounds bytes. A small phrase here or there would have been enough.

There are plenty of characters to collect, and secret areas to open up. The game rewards the player for finding golden bricks which can build things. If one really likes Star Wars and Legos, then they can certainly get their money’s worth.

The force still plays heavy in the gameplay components of Lego Star Wars II. I personally am not a fan of that anti-Christian religious belief being taught to our children under the guise of entertainment. The controls all work amazingly well. The auto lock on when shooting generally works well. I ran into a problem here or there, but could move a little to get it to reset. The puzzles are easier this time though.

Lego Star Wars II has more shooting in it, and less reliance on the Jedi characters. The anti-establishment message is found lightly within this game, as well as fighting against evil. A decent game as long as you monitor the violent content.
