Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy
What more can I say than this? If you're an avid lego collector, or you love the Star Wars films just that much, you'll like playing. Essentially the same game as its predecessor, there's no real gameplay differences in this sequel, and I have to say I'm happy with that. If you've played the first one, you've already played through the Star Wars prequels, platforming your way from Phantom Menace all the way through Revenge of the Sith. This time it's Luke's chance to stack some bricks.
As you progress through the game you'll unlock all manner of characters to play with. These characters let you go back and unlock the parts of the level you couldn't normally get to with the characters you'll play in story mode. Depending on who you take into a mission you'll be playing Jedi, Sith, rebels with blasters, droids, or even utility characters like R2-D2 and C-3P0. Each type of character has a unique ability that allows you to explore different parts of each stage. The reward? As you collect enough studs and hidden items, you build special lego kits that you can view in a gallery.
My one complaint with this game is the flashing text. If you don't have a 2nd player, the game continuously flashes 'Insert Controller', which can't be turned off. It sits in the upper right hand corner of the screen, but man it is annoying. Plus, the menus repeat the same flashing element, driving me into crazy, epileptic fits. Just kidding, but it is definitely annoying.
All in all, this is a fun game, but it is for a specialized appetite. If you're not a fan of the first one, don't bother.
