Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is a huge retelling of the three trilogies of nine mainline films from the Star Wars franchise. You can choose your starting point at either The Phantom Menace, the original film or The Force Awakens and then progress through that trilogy’s narrative with over 300 unlockable characters. Naturally there’s split-screen co-op throughout as well.
This is a thoroughly overhauled Traveller’s Tales Lego game, though, as they rebuilt their enduring family-friendly series from the ground up. The camera has been brought in for an over-the-shoulder 3rd person view, there’s a vast amount of content in the game with all nine of the main Star Wars films included, and that’s combining linear levels, open world hubs and even getting to blast off into outer space! Through it all, there’s the same classic Lego Star Wars style and sense of humour, but it’s all been spruced up and enhanced for modern machines.
Looking back on the game’s launch earlier this year, Dom said in our Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga review: “[This] is the most ambitious Lego game yet, and despite the occasional technical mishap it delivers a daring and often delightful romp through the most iconic film franchise of all time.”
