LEGO Star Wars Demo
The Star Wars saga has been around for a few decades now and it had its fair share of adaptations when it comes to video games. Most of them, however, have tried to depict the series exactly as it was portrayed in the movies, which can be rather difficult to achieve without a very powerful graphic engine to render the environments.
A casual take on the Star Wars story
LEGO Star Wars chose not to concern itself with realism and drama, by taking some of the most memorable events from the movies and transposing them into the entertaining world of lego blocks. Thus, everyone can enjoy a tour of the galaxy and have fun while doings so, as well as defeat the evil forces of the dark side in the process.
In addition, the game also encourages you to go through the adventure with a friend, by including an optional co-op mode that allows two players to move on the screen at the same time. Along the way, many other characters can join your party to help you advanced through certain challenges, which can be controlled as well whenever you require their skills. The character switch can be done with a press of a button, which comes in handy when you find yourself in sticky situations that require fast response times.
Use the trusty lightsaber to defeat your enemies
A major component of the game is fighting aspect, which has been masterfully perfected to blend in with the funny and casual nature of the events taking place while you are playing. Hence, the lightsaber mechanics are very easy to grasp and put into practice, especially since the character is controlled using the keyboard alone. Moreover, the lightsaber can also be your defense mechanism, by using it to deflect incoming laser shots.
As far as the other characters that have made their way into the game, each one of them has a special ability that must be used in order to advance. Throughout your adventure, a wide range of famous characters are temporarily under your control, including Anakin Skywalker, R2-D2 and even Yoda. Furthermore, notorious villains make their appearance as well, such as Count Dooku or Darth Maul.
Tons of fun across the entire galaxy
In the end, despite the fact that the game does not take itself very seriously, it does provide you with countless hours of entertainment, especially if you choose to play it with a friend. In addition, the cute graphics and the lack of speech make the entire adventure even more fun, leaving the rest to your imagination.
