Ships Ahoy - LEGO Star Wars

Eidos announces that LEGO Star Wars has landed on planet North America:
San Francisco, CA (April 6, 2005) – The world’s most popular film series joins with the world’s most beloved toy maker to create LEGO® Star Wars™: The Video Game. Eidos plc (Nasdaq: EIDSY), one of the world’s leading publishers and developers of entertainment software and Giant Interactive Entertainment today announced that LEGO Star Wars: The Video Game is now available for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, Xbox® video game system from Microsoft, PC and Game Boy® Advance platforms.

Created by Giant Interactive Entertainment, Ltd. and Traveller’s Tales, LEGO Star Wars: The Video Game features a unique game world and characters built from virtual LEGO blocks. Within the game, players relive the most memorable scenes from the most recent Star Wars movies, The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, and the forthcoming film Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith.

“LEGO Star Wars: The Video Game literally combines the ‘force’ of two childhood powerhouses, LEGO and Star Wars, to create an action-adventure title designed to appeal to everyone, especially young game players,” said Jefferson Dong, global brand manager, Eidos. “Anyone who has ever known the joy of building with LEGO blocks or been entranced by Star Wars will find themselves drawn in by this game.”

Gamers can play as more than 40 of their favorite Star Wars characters through more than 18 levels, experiencing the complete storyline of the first three movies in the Star Wars saga with plenty of action, puzzles, and unique LEGO Star Wars humor. Additionally, players can enjoy a two-player cooperative play mode that lets a second player drop in and out of the action without interrupting gameplay.

what really surprises me is now that there are colored mini figs (white black etc) that the star wars figures which started off yellow are now coming in colors (example the 2nd Falcon released from lego has white han solo and leia instead of the yellow ones.)

I'm personally puzzled by the release date of this one since it contains gameplay based on Episode III. Won't that be a major spoiler?

April 2nd was the "release" date for all EPIII merchandise. It could be considered a spoiler, yes, but only insomuch as all the other toys, LEGO, games, and books are.

he one unforgivable sin that the devs did was give the Lego people different emotional expressions. Lego people should ALL have that empty-headed smirk no matter what they're doing. A lego jedi gets his arm hacked off in a duel? A blank smiling expression is what should be displayed on his mug.

Ahh... I hate to break it to you, but LEGO minifigs have had more than the smilie face for over a decade. Female, male, beards, mustaches, frowns, laughing, scowls... There's tons of variety these days:

I have to agree there hump but the lego pieces I use to play with never had heads and stuff.

?? And you must really be out of the LEGO loop! Even the first "basic" black armless minifigs had heads...

I thought the demo was a lot of fun as a puzzler. Sure, it's consolish, but that's what I expected so it didn't really bother me.

How low can a franchise go

This is hardly a low point for Star Wars.. Lucas has been pimpin' his "creation" since day one, and he's licnesed far worse ideas than this one.

That Star Wars christmas game, for instance. Or all the Pepsi promotions that have been licensed. Star Wars never was some holy spirit of pure and untouched sci-fi...

Wow... I just realized I can't make coherent, balanced sentences when I haven't slept for a day or two..

Might be good for the very little ones (arguably the game's target audience), but I'd be surprised if anyone over 12 didn't find the gameplay mechanics tedious and frustrating.

As far as building the Star Wars universe out of Lego goes, the game is absolutely brilliant -- a real work of art, and it's clear that the designers are both SW fans and Lego afficionados. The graphics are just right. You could probably take screenshots and use them as blueprints for building some of the setpieces out of Lego yourself, and there is a huge amount of creativity on display there. I was very impressed with that aspect of it, and using your force-powers to assemble and disassemble the Lego stuff is awesome..

As far as an actual game goes, OTOH, it's pretty wretched. At least, it is if the demo is any real indication of what goes on in the full game. Complete lack of camera control (and a sluggish and mostly incompetent AI camera implementation) would be my #1 complaint.

Spectacularly boring combat would be #2. But honestly I'd happily overlook #2 if #1 didn't exist as the amazing Legoness of it all is really very cool (at least, to a Lego freak like myself it is). Trouble is, since you don't get to move the camera yourself, you can't just wander around checking things out. Dumb 3rd person camera systems are a personal nemesis of mine, so I could be overly sensitive here, but it took a major effort to get through the demo

Bleh, says I

Might be good for the very little ones (arguably the game's target audience), but I'd be surprised if anyone over 12 didn't find the gameplay mechanics tedious and frustrating.

Then again, WB seems to think reinventing Bugs Bunny as an Xtreme lazer-beam-ninja-thing is going to go over well, so there's just no tellin' what them kids might like these days. No siree, no tellin' at all, I tells ya! Where's my teeth at?

I dunno, it's not really my kind of game, and I thought the controls sucked in the demo.
