Long awaited for months, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga has finally arrived on all platforms. And actually I would have written that finally in capital letters, because as I already told when talking about this week’s releases on Xbox Game Pass, among which it is, I already told you that I have been waiting for it since it was presented at Gamescon 2021, in August from last year. A wait that I will develop later, but I think it was worth it.
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is, without a doubt, the most ambitious project of all undertaken by the LEGO franchisebecause as its name indicates, includes the nine films, that is, the three trilogies, in which the entire arc of the main protagonists of the saga takes place. From Episode I, in which we see how the Skywalker surname will be transcendental for the history of humanity, to Episode IX, with which we say goodbye to the main arc of Star Wars (but not to its many parallel stories, as we have already seen in projects like The Mandalorian and Bobba Fett).
Surprising as it is, there are still people on the face of the Earth who have not seen any of the nine films, and when you talk to one of those people and they are interested in doing so, one of the most recurring questions is where to start. And it may seem trivial, but I have heard and read endless lectures about it. So, something that I really liked about LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is that you can start with the first episode of the trilogy you preferthat is, episodes I, IV and VII.
Although I have barely been able to spend a few minutes on it (I’ll make up for it, that’s clear), my first impression, the taste in my mouth with which it leaves me is that the work and the wait have been worth it. The studio has managed to combine the history of the movies with the particular and unmistakable humor of LEGO (of which I am a fan, both in games and in movies), giving extra freedom thanks to the secondary missions, and all in a title that is Enjoyable across an incredibly wide age range, from toddlers to seniors. In that LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga scores a good point.
Perhaps, yes, and precisely for wanting to cover such a wide age range, some players may find it too easy or unchallenging. In the absence of dedicating a few hours to it, I do have the feeling that LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is an easy game, more designed to enjoy the enormous adventure, than to test myself against complicated challenges. Now, and taking into account the context, this is not something that seems negative to me. Quite the contrary, not everything has to be Dark Souls and try hard all the time.
The LEGO Star Wars Proposal: The Skywalker Saga He proposes us to live the entire arc of Star Wars with all its main characters and many secondary ones., in which if we add the secondary missions it can translate into many hours of play, always with the common thread of what happened many, many years ago, in a galaxy far, far away. Soon we will publish a test on the game, but I can already tell you that the first contact has been very positive.
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is now on sale in its versions for PC, PlayStation 5, Play Station 4, Xbox Series, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. More information on its official website.
