LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens Reviews
Lego Star Wars reinvents itself enough to avoid the usual critiques of its gameplay, only to fall short trying to stretch out its story.
LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens is the most gaming fun I've had with either series in years. The story is great, the levels are dense with fun puzzles, and unlocking all of the secrets is a blast. Whether I was going through it solo or playing alongside a buddy, LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens proved to be an adaption worthy of its incredible source material.
An average action game saved by a charming sense of humour and an intoxicating sense of fun.
A fun adventure in the Star Wars universe, badly let down by too many game-breaking glitches.
Much like the film, this is more a testament to what worked before than a genuinely new experience, but it makes the best of its voice cast and an obvious love for Star Wars.
A blast for Star Wars and Lego fans alike
Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens doesn't take the Lego series to new places, but is still a solid and enjoyable romp for families and Star Wars fans.
With all of its filler, both good and bad, Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens still feels like it should have waited for a few more movies. As I set about scouring the game's levels for special bricks, mini-kits and other goodies fans of the extended franchise obsess over, I keep thinking about what a great third of a trilogy game this will make once Star Wars Episode IX arrives in 2019.
The Force is clearly strong with TT Fusion.
LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens still feels limited in nature, but it's a better, more pointed effort than Marvel's Avengers, which was all over the place. It might feel a little more stretched if you didn't go bonkers over Abrams' film, but if you're really anxious to hang out with Finn and the gang again, this is a good opportunity.
LEGO Star Wars The Force Awakens is a complete success for TT Games. It achieves to be liked by every kind of player and is a great adaptation from the movie. There are tons of locked content that can be unlocked if you spend more time in the game.

Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens is amongst the best games from either franchise. While the story of a single film has been noticeably stretched out, there's still plenty of content here for fans to enjoy, and the new additions to the Lego formula help to keep things fresh despite so much familiarity.
LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens is another good LEGO game, with delightful graphics and sounds. Gameplay, however, is not always engaging.

Rather than coming out right at the release of the movie itself, LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens has arrived at the perfect time for fans to not only relive the events of the movie, but do so with that signature LEGO style.
While it's not going to change your mind one way or another, often there are two types of LEGO game, and thankfully this firmly falls into the "good" pile.
It'll all feel very familiar if you've played a Lego game recently
TT Games' signature humour makes this otherwise predictable building brick adventure worth a spin – especially if you have a kid with whom to play
This is, for children, adults, anyone, a really lovely thing, funny, silly, and tremendous fun to play. If you've a kid who just got into Star Wars via the new movie, goodness me this can't be recommended highly enough. But at the same time, and I've been the one fighting off saying this for years longer than many others, it's getting stale. I
As authentic as it gets, LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens is 100% fan service. With new voice work from the cast, and the signature TT Games style, the only thing we can hope for in their next outing is a cleaner execution, and some new features to play with. The tried-and-true formula still works, but it's time to shake things up.
Always fun to watch, sometimes tedious to play alone. Star Wars and LEGO solidify their meaningful relationship once again. The developers just need to address a terrible save-game system, and need to clean up some of the bugs forcing reloads. But the LEGO video game formula is still the LEGO video game formula. Just be prepared to still be left wondering "What do I do now?" from time to time.
