Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga Reviews
The Skywalker Saga's competent design is elevated by its infectious, charming sense of humor.
For the most part, the game's film retellings are humourous if simple fun - there's nothing here you can't button mash or Lego brick smash through - and I particularly enjoyed Rise of Skywalker, where that film's often-daft script is well sent-up. After a quick tour, however, the game's open worlds held less pull.
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga provides some rollicking reimaginings of Star Wars' most iconic moments and seats them inside a series of interplanetary playgrounds that are dense with discovery and entertaining diversions.
A breathtakingly expansive and authentic recreation of the core Star Wars universe in LEGO. Its gameplay is predictably simplistic at times, but literally everything else is stellar. At last, THIS is the droid you are looking for.
A wonderfully enthusiastic love letter to Lego, Star Wars, and video games in general, that goes above and beyond the call of duty in terms of the scale of the adventure, the attention to detail, and the sheer volume of content.
Despite being periodically uneventful, the Skywalker Saga is a thorough and fun examination of all three Star Wars movie trilogies. It delivers the same sensation of being overwhelmed as opening a Blu-Ray collection of films and not knowing which one you should start with.
Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga's refreshed mechanics and gorgeous worlds provide enough incentive to revisit the three trilogies again, despite some repetitive content.
I can’t think of another Star Wars game that’s included so much of the franchise, in such a brilliant and well-made package, and does it all without becoming boring, or bogged down in canon details and retcons. Star Wars is silly. Star Wars is epic. Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga knows this and embraces both aspects, while being a lot of fun and very funny. It’s one of my favorite games of 2022, and while some hardcore Star Wars fans may be loathe to admit it, yes, this is probably the best Star Wars game yet made.
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga providing such a huge toybox of characters, worlds, vehicles, and more to unlock and play will make it essential for many Star Wars fans. In terms of sheer scale, size, and scope, this is far beyond anything Traveller’s Tales have put out before with the LEGO brand. Unfortunately, some of that ambition is undermined by the lackluster implementation of certain ideas that are supposed to be its big selling points, such as its improved combat and new camera angle. This is arguably not quite the Star Wars game you’re looking for, but it does more than enough right.
Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga doesn’t reinvent the wheel and the subject matter is limited because the narrative mostly adheres to the film trilogies (when can we get a Rebels LEGO game?), but it’s a fun way to relive them as an adult and show them to kids at the same time.
Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is the most ambitious Lego game yet, and despite the occasional technical mishap it delivers a daring and often delightful romp through the most iconic film franchise of all time.
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is like a dream come true: a game where we can play the most important moments of the nine films, engage in lightsaber battles, fly and fight with a space ship, explore the galaxy, control ALL the characters... If you are a Star Wars fan, it's a must have.

Really, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is all the action from the Star Wars series, swaddled in the slapstick silliness LEGO has become known for in entertainment. While it’s not a 1-to-1 retelling and your favourite moment might have been left in the toy chest, it’s a knowing showcase of Star Wars’ place in pop culture – memes and all – in a deep, but accessible package.
Becomes the most powerful title of the franchise, a good exponent with which to spend hours exploring the most famous block space in the galaxy.

The biggest LEGO videogame ever made dips the players in a cohesive Star Wars experience. In terms of gameplay, innovations are not to be expected, as the LEGO formula is well established and it's still working. LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is easy to pick, fun to play alone or along a friend/kid and a mandatory experience for any Star Wars and LEGO fan.

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is filled with some good ideas and some nice mechanics. Despite looking amazing and feeling authentic, the camera angles and repetitive gameplay will grate on some people.
Don't let the LEGO license fool you. This is the Star Wars game we've all been waiting for.
There just isn’t enough juice in the combat, the cover shooting, or the endless hoovering of collectibles.
