What is 'Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga' about?
While other previous games have had a central focus, this game will take you along on the journey through all nine of the Star Wars saga films. According to the game's overview, fans start out by choosing which part of the trilogy they want to start out with. It doesn't matter where you begin, because either way you'll be playing as many of your favorite characters, facing off against enemies in the heat of battle, and breaking apart lego objects as you go.
According to the overview (above), if you've ever wanted to be a part of the Star Wars Saga but in a Lego world, this is the game for you. As you progress through it, you'll be able to unlock various planets to travel to and explore. Plus, that means you get to travel through and fight in Lego space. For some people, that's enough of a reason to get a copy of the game.
Just based on the overview, there are hours of fun, laughs, and battles that you'll need your trusty lightsaber for. But don't think that this will be the only weapon available to you. All of your favorite tools will be in your arsenal over time and you will need to use all of them if you hope to defeat all of the enemies that will be in your path.
