Player Quotes

"I've been looking forward to this game for over 10 years, I've played the complete saga over and over again and yet this doesn't capture the same magic for me".

"This is pretty much everything I could have asked for from a lego star wars game. I enjoyed every single level and the open world is amazing".

"TCS has better levels (non ship levels), collecting red bricks and minikits was more fun, collecting hearts was better than the recharge system, the cutscenes are superior, there's a better character selection, and the main hub is awesome".

"I'm so disappointed and pissed about the Skywalker saga I don't even want to play it anymore. My son and me loved the original Lego star wars games and the Lego hobbit. We played them a lot to 100% completion. We were so excited for Skywalker saga.... But now I don't care anymore".

"It is a good Star Wars Game. It has done some things differently compared to the old games. The introduction of the classes is an interesting idea but I think poorly executed. It means that some characters are forced into certain classes despite fitting into multiple".

"The game itself is a ton of fun and with a couple tweaks, it runs fantastically too. Other than the small dips from time to time, Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga shined at 40 FPS with good looking visuals and a great battery life for an open-world game".

"LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga certainly matches it down to every last plastic seam and textured hair piece, with the paint on minifigs chipping away convincingly after extended use as though they’re a much-loved toy".
