My first Lego game was the original Lego Star Wars. I played it to completion, but never got OCD about it and didn’t even come close to doing everything do-able in the game (getting True Jedi, all the minikits, characters, etc.) but I did enjoy it.
Then I got, played, completed and 100%ed Lego Indiana Jones. And Lego Batman. And Lego Indiana Jones 2. I wanted to go back to Lego Star Wars but some of the achievements are utterly ridiculous – you have to complete every single level without dying! Also, there’s The Complete Saga anyway, which is the first game plus the second game (which was based on the second trilogy), so I decided to get that instead.
Problem was, it was never cheap. I only saw it for under £20 once, and I was too slow to buy it. Then I found it at Play Asia and, since I had a load of credit there and it had just come down in price, I managed to buy it for just 61p!
It arrived a couple of weeks ago, and, 12 hours of play later, I finished it. As in, I completed all the levels in story mode. The in-game counter only said I’d done about 33% though, as I’ve all them pesky minikits and gold bricks and red bricks and True Jedi things and everything left to do. And all the bonus levels. Lots.
After a few more hours redoing levels and completing some bonus levels, I’ve now reached 45% done. This is going to take a little while, I think!
