Lego Star Wars II
When I first heard about Lego Star Wars, I thought it was going to be cheesy. Well, guess what? I was right. It's cheesy. Not just a medium brick kind of cheesy, but a full jar of cheezwhiz kinda cheesy. What I wasn't expecting was for it to be a good game.
Now along comes Lego Star Wars II and I'm happy to report everything that worked in the first one is here, and most of what was broken has been fixed. The ship flying modes are better than the original (and less frustrating) and the challenge is a bit higher, although overall I think the game is too easy. At the same time, sometimes it's nice to just experience a game and not get frustrated trying to get past a certain point. This game fills the bill just perfectly.
Is it game of the year? No ... but it sure is a lot of fun, especially seeing Stormtroopers in a Hot Tub!
