Fifth entry in TT Games’ Lego Star Wars series released to great reviews.
It’s not easy to reinvent the wheel. TT Games had to do so when they were asked to not only make the fifth game in the Lego Star Wars series, but to focus entirely on one film. A process never attempted before in the series. Early reviews show TT Games has pulled it off yet again, and made a game worthy of the Star Wars brand.
Director J.J. Abrams and Producer Kathleen Kennedy also make appearances in Lego Star Wars The Force Awakens.
Some of the best elements of the series returned, while also introducing some new elements. One of the amazing technical aspects of the Lego series is how amazing they can look visually, while still running on older hardware very well. That hasn’t changed with Lego Force Awakens. Despite seeming to require a quad core processor (a false statement), the game does run beautifully even on older dual core processors. An amazing feat for such a visually appealing game.
TT Games once again brought the humor, charm, and the fun of the Lego series to their newest game. There have been some complaints here and there from reviewers, but most can agree the game is even better than EA’s Battlefront reboot. It’s a game fitting for all ages, and it works for the hardcore Star Wars fan as well. It’s not easy capturing such a large audience, but through PC, console, and mobile.. TT Games, Lego, and Lucasfilm is doing just that.

One could argue Lego TFA might become the definitive Star Wars game. It has ~200 characters, a large world to explore, a ton of replay value, and a slew of Star Wars charm. And more content will be on the way, via new upcoming DLC. What more could a Star Wars fan want?
