This review is from: Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga - Xbox 360 (Video Game)
Four words: the best game ever. This is the game that got me started playing with the xBox. Up to this point, I was a puzzle-game person (Peggle, JewelQuest, Nancy Drew, Agatha Christie and the like) and avoided most action games. Partly because I do get motion sick, and partly because I have the reflexes of a sloth. I've never been able to handle the action first-person shooter style games, but this one is different.
The camera angle, other than in a very few places, is such that I don't get motion sick and the fact that dying doesn't (usually) do anything bad but cost you money (until you're invincible) is great. It's a low-pressure game, and while a few of the situations can be a little frustrating (such as the jumping - at least until you get flying characters!) overall it's just good fun.
And long! This is a game where you get your money's worth, that's for sure. There are six episodes, each with six levels. In each level there are 4 objectives (True Jedi, Red Brick, Mini-kits, Blue Cannister Challenge), which require several play-throughs in different modes. There are also some bonus levels (Lego Town, New Lego Town, etc) and extra challenges (Jaba the Hutt's 'find the character' levels).
And last, but not least, you get the achievements - from the simple 'completed the level' to the fun 'let the wookie win' to the difficult 'complete a level without dying (and not being invincible)'.
The only thing I was disappointed in was what was built after all the gold bricks were acquired. It was a bit of a letdown, but barely puts a dent in the greatness of the game. This is the game that all future games will be measured against in my book. Cute, creative, fun, and simply amazing. Go play it today! Even if you're not an 'action game' sort of person. Really, you won't regret it.
