High-quality LEGO game that brings the Star Wars experience to life – and isn’t afraid to make fun of itself.
I’ve been waiting for LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens for a while now. I first heard about this game during a visit to my local GameStop. They had an elaborate countdown timer stationed near the checkout line, and it was about 19 days until the release. I was a little sad to see that the Wii U only had a regular version (unlike the special versions for PS4 and XBOX One), but I was still excited for the game.
LEGO games have always had a great sense of humor, and I was ready to see how that humor translated to the The Force Awakens. I really enjoyed this movie, but I also know how ridiculous Star Wars can be (*cough* original trilogy *cough*). After getting back from the store with the game in hand, I was eager to see how it would portray some of the movie’s darker plot points.
