    dkirschner's Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy (PS2)

    [November 17, 2013 12:04:48 PM]
    I gave this another shot...over two years (?!) later. Good news: I got farther than last time. Bad news: The AI is still terrible and I'm getting rid of it.

    Last time I must have just been tired or not thinking clearly. I had had trouble assembling a bridge with Luke/Obi because enemies keep coming and interrupting the building process. This time I figured out that if you just kill all but one enemy, you can usually assemble things before getting shot. So no problem there, but your AI companions are still really dumb. They fire a bullet once every 10 seconds or so and stand in the way of things.

    It's still awesome to destroy objects and have them burst into Legos, and I went back to the cantina and unlocked some stuff. You can buy different characters like storm troopers and you can purchase random things like disguises (puts fake glasses and mustaches on characters, quite amusing) and a skin that turns your grappling hook into a chain of daisies. There was tons of stuff to buy, but all greyed out so I couldn't see!

    I've played other Lego games with my little brother since failing at this one a couple years ago, so I feel like I've played it before. And since it's Star Wars, I already know the story. So all in all, I've got no motivation to spend my time going through it. Also, since I just played Ratchet & Clank: Tools of Destruction, I just kept thinking "this isn't as good as R&C." So I'm gonna gift it to my little brother, who will enjoy it more than me!

    Same as Max Payne, I feel I should write a blurb since I spent an hour with this as well. I've no doubt this game will be awesome with a second player, so I shall set about finding a willing partner. Single-player though, it's obviously got potential, but the teammate AI is useless, and they NEED to be useful. At one point I had Skywalker and Obi Wan. I had to reassemble a bridge (hold a button on sparkly lego parts in the environment and characters can build) while fending off attacks from some creatures, forget the name, on Tatooine. Well, I can only do one thing myself, either shoot creatures to defend the builder, or do the building. Unfortunately my teammate wouldn't build, and sucked at shooting enemies. If I shoot enemies, nothing gets built, and if I try to build, I get shot and interrupted because my AI teammate sucks. So it took me 10 minutes to build this stupid bridge. With another person it would have been so much smoother. "Hey, I'll build, you shoot."

    There's a lot to destroy, which is fun. If it looks like you can shoot it, shoot it, and it explodes into shiny lego bits! You collect them for something, probably building a ship or characters or upgrading later on. Playing through the original Star Wars films (or just the first part of IV so far) is pretty cool, especially Lego-ized. The little lego characters are so cute. Darth Vader is still menacing though.

    So, I think I should have a Star Wars movie extravaganza and invite a bunch of people over for an original trilogy marathon, then play the game with someone later. Good excuse to watch movies. Could be fun.

    dkirschner's opinion and rating for this game

    Seems really fun with 2 players, but AI is useless. Blowing up legos is awesome. ------ Second time around, realize I've played Lego games before, I know the story, just no real point to investing time.

    Rating (out of 5):starstarstarstar
