The LEGO Star Wars series has always been that video game franchise that just managed to work despite appearances. However, if we were to talk about a certain game from the series, it would have to be Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga. This 2007 title had the perfect combination of gameplay and humor, making it easy for people of all ages to enjoy the game. The Complete Saga is basically a compilation of LEGO Star Wars and LEGO Star Wars II, but bumped up to high definition and slightly tweaked.

If you aren’t familiar with the LEGO Star Wars series, the first game covers the “prequel” Star Wars films, and the second game covers where the predecessor left off. Each game is a kind of puzzle/platform version of each story segment, fast-forwarding to the highlights of each movie with LEGO versions standing in-place of their real-life counterparts.

Overall, the final product of the game was a huge success. The animation was enjoyable, humor was surprisingly successful, and the music was something to remember. Also, the fact that you can play co-op with another player makes the game much more enjoyable as you can both experience the ride together. One thing I would point out, however, is that the camera controls are a bit annoying to use as they can sometimes be hard to control. For players looking for a harder experience, you can try to collect all of the collectibles/characters using studs, the game’s coin currency.

If you are looking for a game that would bring lots of nostalgia, I highly recommend this game. However, if you are looking for a newer type of game, then you are sadly out of luck. People who are uninterested in Star Wars may find this game easily stagnant, but if you can bring yourself to appreciate the references and work put in, you will not be disappointed.
