Some general points:
- Lego Star The Force Awakens Wars
- Shortest Lego Game Ever
Taking point 2, my daughter and I completed it – just the story mind – in less than ten hours. Less than ten. For a Lego game. That’s the shortest I’ve ever played by some margin, and we got stuck in a hangar on one level for over an hour because neither of us had seen a thing to jump and hang from.
I’m no snob over the length of games, but even The Lego Movie The Video Game Movie Lego Game was 15 or 18 or something. And, yes, there are extra levels unlocked (although we’ve done the rathtar hunting one already) and levels and worlds to go back to to get the rest of the gold bricks and things… but ten hours?
The third point, is because my daughter wants to be BB8 now. For real. Because of course she does.
Neither of us are fans of Star Wars. I’ve only seen the first 5 films[ref]You heard.[/ref] and part of Phantom Menace[ref]The sixth one.[/ref] but Lego wins out, as always. It wasn’t as much fun as Lego City Undercover, though, but little is. The two new mechanics added to the game actually make it worse. The first is how bricks can now build two or more objects. Odds are, you’ll build the wrong one first. The second is Gears of War style cover shooter sections. Nah, mate.
Still, we’ll be 100%ing it. And then we’ll be on the look out for the next Lego game!
