Collin Acevedo, Features Editor

On the 5th of April, 2022 Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga was released. The sixth Lego videogame to include the Star Wars name, but Travelers Tale, the developer, has certainly towered over their past achievements with new additions in this vast and well-designed game.

With all nine live-action, Star Wars movies as playable parts of the story as well as Downloadable Content (DLC) of other Star Wars projects whether it be for television or movie being playable. It combines all of these together to create an immaculate treat for Star Wars fans as you can choose from over 300 playable characters, 119 flyable ships, and a whole open world map letting you travel from the interior capital of Coruscant to the outer rim planets like Tatooine.

With an immersive dive into the whole of the Skywalker saga staring from the beginnings of negotiation above Naboo in Episode One to the ending of Episode Nine with Rey burying the historical lightsaber which had wielded so much. It gives fans a game they’ve been wanting as well as the enjoyable lego humor to interject between our favorite moments to spare a laugh. In a grand and stunning display Lego doesn’t turn away from being toys and embraces the gentle humor it evokes with all its actions. With the way the game is runs itself is beautiful with the plastic tones on the Lego costumes and a new third-person perspective it leaves it all up for fan enjoyment. 

Spanning up to 90 hours to complete, this game is vast with side missions spanning across the galaxy, with exciting dog fights in starships above planets or helping aliens find their lost droids it gives a good balance to enjoy and explore the Lego environments.

With vast worlds open for exploration Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga provides an open world exploration across the galaxy with an experience to remember. Channeling inner childhood memories throughout the duration of the game with refrences to the past iterations which came out, it shares all things that made them enjoyable and improves it ten fold. Rated E for everyone Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is a hit for Lego and Star Wars fans to remember alike.
