Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga

Reviewing the New Lego Star Wars Game


I  am sure many people are thrilled to find that there has been a new iteration to the Lego Star Wars video game series. Many of you probably played the extremely popular game, Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga. For me, I remember spending many  hours playing that game with my sister,  on our Wii. The original game was known for its comedic moments and its iconic gameplay. The gameplay was ahead of its time in 2007 and still held up until the recent years. It was evident that there was a major revamp needed. Warner Brothers announced the game almost 2 years ago which excited many fans of the original game. However, the game was delayed time and time again, leading people to believe the game might not release. Fortunately, the game finally released this week on April 5.

Lego describes it by saying, “In this brand-new game, players will experience memorable moments and nonstop action from all nine Skywalker saga films reimagined with signature LEGO humor. The game will immerse players in the expansive saga with the freedom to control hundreds of characters, ships and vehicles to create their own unique journey through the galaxy.”

There are 2 different editions to this game, the standard and the deluxe edition. Personally, I purchased the the deluxe edition to receive the many benefits. Like the Physical Deluxe Edition, the Digital Deluxe Edition of LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga also costs an additional $10 on all of its platforms pricing it at $69.99 for Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S and at $59.99 on PC. The Digital Delux Edition includes an exclusive Obi-Wan playable character. It also includes the same character packs as the Physical Deluxe Edition:

  • Classic Characters
  • Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
  • Solo: A Star Wars Story
  • Star Wars: The Bad Batch
  • The Mandalorian Pack 1
  • The Mandalorian Pack 2
  • Trooper Pack



So far, I have completed just Episode I  and Episode II, but I can already say that this is the best Lego Game ever made. The  gameplay  is much  improved  from the last game which makes the levels feel less repetitive.  The combat is also much more skill based. The game rewards  players for doing different combos by dealing more damage to the enemies. This helps prevent against players “button mashing” to speed through the levels. Probably what I am most impressed with, are the Lightsaber Duels. Before, the boss fights were way too easy and repetitive due to the lack of possibly with consoles at the time. Now, the boss battles are more difficult and require more skill to complete. In my opinion this adds more to the game, as you must take more time learn the controls.

The levels in space are much improved from the previous game as well. One of my favorite levels so far, was the dogfight between Obi-Wan and Jango Fett above Geonosis. The only thing I would want to see changed with the Starships is making it easier to turn. As of now, the turning with the right stick is very sensitive and makes it difficult at times.

Another thing I am impressed with, is the graphics in this game. For a a game which I did not expect the focus to be on its graphics, they are done incredibly well. It is really cool to see a lego character run around in a nearly accurate world.


I will say what many people will most likely say is their favorite aspect of the game. The open-world part of the game is just amazing. It reminds me of an upscale of Lego Batman 2 which was loved for it being an open-world game. With this feature, there is just so much to do. You can go into every building and do anything in them. I was most excited to finally be able to just walk around the Jedi Temple, something you could not do in The Complete Saga. Another impressive aspect is the amount of characters they added to the game. With lots of characters, it makes free play of each level different and keeps the game interesting.

The one thing I wish was different, would be the levels having a little more combat. There is a lot of  walking/running  and  dialogue in each level.

I would 100% recommend checking this game out despite its somewhat expensive price tag. If you enjoyed the original game, there is no doubt you will enjoy this iteration.
