In my opinion, this LEGO game is the best one I have ever played. Why do I say that? Well, for a few reasons.
First off, replay value. I have beaten this game twice on a Nintendo Wii I had, and now here on PC. Since there are so many levels, collectables, and even cheats, it makes it so much fun.
Which brings me to my second point. This game lasts for quite some time, especially if you are in it to collect everything. You'll have
to play through every level (36 levels) about 2 or 3 times to get everything. Sounds tedious, right? Well, no. You see, once you have done story mode, like all other LEGO games, you can go back with any other characters and power on through the level. It's very fun to go back and explore the places you can't get to in story mode.
So now the third reason why this game is so fun. Throughout the game you can collect "Power Bricks" which enable you to do things like become invincible and make the in-game currency, the studs, worth many times their original value. This makes it so you can buy vehicles, characters, and other things faster. You can also make it so your Jedi Slam does more damage, disable enemy weapons, and so much more.
And finally, the shear amount of characters is amazing. There are over 120 characters, some being different variations of the same person and lots of others. You can even be Indiana Jones!
But what are the levels like? They are all unique, providing different things to do in every level. However, a few levels are a bit repetitve and boring. One or two are extremely hard in story mode, such as one where you have to fly around and destroy enemy ships and weapons. But the rest of the levels certainly make up for them.
With this game having the replay value and normal LEGO humor, it's a fantastic game to play. I got halfway through the game about 17 hours in, so it's certainly not a short game. So if you have never played it and were wondering, I strongly recommend it! 9/10.
