E3 '07: Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga Impressions

We get a first look at some of the features being added to this compilation of the two Lego Star Wars games.

The first Lego Star Wars was a surprise hit, and its sequel was just plain a hit. But there are lots of PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii owners who haven't played one or both of these fun games. Luckily for them, Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga is headed to those very consoles on November 6th.

As you can probably imagine, The Complete Saga is the first two Lego Star Wars games in one package. But Traveller's Tales isn't just throwing them on a disc and calling it a day. There are lots of new things to look forward to, several of which we saw in the first level of Episode One when Qui-Gon used his new Force move called "droid bowling" to pick up and toss an enemy droid into a group of foes. Then he put together a small hovering vehicle that wasn't in the original game and blew away the rest of the droids in the room. There are also new power-ups, like the one we saw that increased the power and attack range of Qui-Gon's lightsaber. We were told there would be new levels as well. These changes were obvious, but many won't be quite as noticeable and will be small tweaks to improve the gameplay experience.

Each version of the game will have its own exclusive content as well. The Xbox 360 will, of course, have achievements, and the PlayStation 3 will make use of the Sixaxis' motion-sensing abilities and run in 1080p. The Wii version will also have motion-sensing controls--for the first time you'll be able to swing a controller around to control your lightsaber. Both the PS3 and the Wii will let you control vehicles via motion controls, too. If you don't feel like waving the Wii Remote you can use more traditional controls, but you're rewarded for using the motion-sensing controls with more spectacular effects and increased damage.

If you're unlucky enough to have not yet played any of the Lego Star Wars games and you can wait until November, the additions and changes found in The Complete Saga should make it a package worth waiting for.

such a successfull franchise. can you imagine the brainstorm session this was birthed from..."hey guys, Star Wars, how do put a spin on it?" - three days of brain storming later - "Uhhhh, why don't we take the dialogue out and make everthing out of Legos?" ........instant classic :)

I'm glad I didn't buy the second game. just two months ago I had it in my amazon cart, but never got around to buying it. I guess I sensed the compilation coming through the force. And also looking forward to the graphics facelift. I'm awaiting my repaired 360 and this game.

hmmm.... makes me feel a little silly for having what I thought was a great deal on Star Wars II for 360 (It came down to $15.) I wonder how willing I'm going to be to throw down 50-60 for this compilation..

Lego Star Wars 1 was better than the 2nd.

Sweet, I will be getting this on the 360. Unless the Wii version is actually done well.

basically some of you people, even tho u have the first two, are willing to dish out another 50$ just for achievments and a couple new moves, kinda sad.

Now I'm glad I didn't rent the first or second one. I'll just buy this!

I'm actually going to pick up Lego Star Wars II for the 360 now that it's $20. Since I never have been a fan of the new trilogy I think I can avoid the complete saga, especially now that Lego Indiana Jones has been announced. Plus, since I rented LSW2 long ago, I've already started to get those achievements. And, I have a Wii, and I enjoy it, but if the lightsaber "controls" are like the controls for swinging Link's sword it won't be that cool. =(

I'm definitely getting the Wii version!

Dang, I have the first two, but I'm thinking of getting this for the new stuff and new achievements (I have 1000 in LSW2)

I have been wanting to get both these games and now I`m SO glad I waited.

Sounds like it will satisfy my SW fix till 08 when Force Unleashed comes out.

This is awesome. Is it worth buying again? New achievements maybe?

If they make the motion sensing controls nice, I'm going to buy that game.

The only letdown is how easy the two previous are, but that's compensated by the replay value the game brings. I miss some scenes though, like Zam Wessel (which they pratically confirmed) and the duel between Mace and Palpatine

Great stuff, shame I've already got the second. For those of you who think it's a bit "kiddy" don't be put off. Seeing your favourite childhood episodes IV, V & VI being transformed into short stumpy fellas with stiff legs is hilarious, great fun all round!

This is going to be great with the wii! and for 360!

I'm so there! What a great deal! This is like Lego Star Wars: Special Edition... Looks like LucasArts is taking a cue from Mr. Lucas himself and giving the games the movie treatment. Will that stop Star Wars-ophiles from ponying up a little extra cash for another Lego Star Wars fix? It's not gonna stop me! Two words: Bad ass!
