Lego Star Wars 

 

Lego’s and Star Wars is a most interesting combination. Then on top of that Eidos had Traveller’s Tales develop a video game based on the concept. Star Wars 1, 2, and 3 are all represented in this one Gamecube (also on PS2, Xbox, and PC) video game. When enemies are beaten their lego pieces fall apart. Light sabers, the force, and blasters are all faithfully represented. The force has to be the most troubling aspect of this video game. Players may not progress through the game without using this mystical, and admitted anti-Christian ideology.

The different characters from the Star Wars movies are represented quite well as legos, although some do seem a little on the bland side. The rest of the graphics are done very well, and seeing everything in legos (okay most everything) is quite a treat. The special effects are done a lot like the movies. The violence is there, but I really can not get too worked on over legos falling apart. Female characters have drawn on breasts that would not reach the level of enticement to lust.

The second biggest disappointment I have with Lego Star Wars is the sounds. The music is classic Star Wars, and certainly does fit quite well. The voice acting is nonexistent. Okay that is just a wee bit too harsh, it consists of grunts, and other such sounds. It would have been nice if there had been some actual sound bytes from the movies.

Lego Star Wars has so many different hidden items that levels can be replayed over and over again. A game can be beaten in four to five hours if not all the items are collected. Plus different characters can be taken back into a certain level so that specific items can be found. This game can be found pretty cheap so in my humble opinion it is worth your money if the violence, and force issues do not bother you.

Lego Star Wars controls really well, and the designs of the levels is very intelligent. Some hints in certain areas would have been nice. I had fun playing the game, although the constant dismantling of lego robots did get old after awhile.

The main lesson I found in Lego Star Wars was to swap characters when a puzzle could not be solved. Different skills are required in order to complete certain missions. The lessons from the movie are lightly touched upon. The use of violence to solve all of the problems has been way over done in the video game industry. Although deflecting certain enemies shots back at them is a skill that can be used (not always reliable) when playing a jedi character.
