LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens, based off of Star Wars Episode 7, created by George Lucas: a Video Game Review

What are we playing:

Explore the planets you’ve heard of in Star Wars but now in LEGO form! Relive Episode 7 and explore extended worlds from planet to planet as you play through the film all the while destroying everything in sight!

This set of LEGO game walks through the worlds and planets of Star Wars Episode 7, in playable levels which you can go back after completing in Story Mode and play again to collect everything.

General Information:

-Genre: Collectathon

-Creator: Traveller’s Tales in partnership with LEGO and Lucasfilm

-Number of Levels:

-Collectables:

-Rating: E10+ (mild cartoon nudity, moderate violence but cartoony and in LEGO, several scenes in bars, smuggling)

-How to Play: local game stores (explore your area and support local!), used game stores, online or in box stores, or look for it at your local library (many libraries now have video games and even tabletop games for checkout)

-Page of Reference in RP1: 62-64

Review (contains spoilers):

Just like all other LEGO games these are your fairly standard collectathon style game and it is achievable to get a 100% completion, you just have to return after Story Mode to get everything.

I love a good LEGO game! And this one did not disappoint. It took a page out of the Lord of the Rings LEGO games and went with a more open world concept vs. the more enclosed worlds/levels in the previous games. I also love that the included some of the offshoot stories as side quests for you to discover as you explore all of the planets in Episode 7. It’s wonderful.

Like always LEGO games are some of my favorite games to play. Since the majority of the game is just beating everything in sight to actually figure out what has stuff in it and what doesn’t it makes for awesome stress relief and I absolutely love that you can’t really die. You just burst into bits…aka LEGO currency.

These are super fun and are great to play with kids but challenging enough for adult players to really enjoy.
