The curious world of console games realised through interactive computerised Lego avatars and environments has been around for a while. The original Star Wars Lego games were innovative, new and above all fun – and helped kick-start a seemingly 24/7 production line of games. Some work well; others’ charm is sometimes offset by over-complicated controls. And with yet another return to the Star Wars universe I was wondering if the creative well might have run dry.
I needn’t have worried. The fun and charm are still there in spades, along with perfectly timed humor that is genuinely side-splitting on occasion, and often just from something you’ve seen in the background.
