Only Billy Dee Williams and Anthony Daniels reprise their roles as Lando Calrissian and C-3PO, respectively, but the rest of the voice cast do a fine job impersonating the likes of Luke, Han Solo, Rey, Leia et al. Also, John Williams' iconic score remains an absolute joy. Obviously.
Playing the new LEGO Star Wars with loads of actual Star Wars LEGO on a shelf behind me as a reference point, I can confidently report that The Skywalker Saga's LEGO looks about as close to the real thing as is currently possible. Environments look great, too, and minifigure characters are full of life and personality.
While a shift to third-person makes The Skywalker Saga feel a little different to previous LEGO games, this is essentially the same strain of brick-breaking, stud collecting, button-bashing gameplay that we've come to know and (sort of) love over the last couple of decades. Starfighter sections are great fun and there are some fine set pieces, which help elevate the action.
Events from nine movies spread across 45 levels, with more than 1,100 Kyber Bricks to collect, loads of hub areas to pick through for hidden secrets, and a glut of side activities. There's no shortage of content here, or Star Wars characters to play as, Starfighters to pilot, and creatures to ride around. The most polished and complete LEGO Star Wars experience yet.
Not the most inspired list. Of the 45 achievements, ten are attached to completing the story, nine are dedicated to completing every single event, and the majority of the rest revolve around collecting studs, Kyber Bricks, and other stuff. Save for one or two clever objectives, this is about as vanilla as achievement lists get.
