I don’t much like Star Wars, and Lego stopped really interesting me when I was 13. And everyone knows that all film tie-ins are rubbish. So I bought it anyway.
To be fair, it was only £16, and it has had some really good reviews.
And you know what? It’s actually pretty good. It’s not fantastic, but it’s original, funny (more so if you’ve seen the films) and fun to play. So much so, in fact, that I sat and completed Episode IV (that’s the first third of the game) in one sitting.
Had a few niggles with it so far, like the targeting sometimes causing you to bitch-slap your comrades, and sometimes you not having a clue what to do next (when in doubt, smash everything), but overall it’s great so far.
