Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy (DS)
Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy is an action-adventure game that was developed by TT Games and was published by LucasArts. It originally released on the 11th of September 2006 for the all the 6th generation home consoles as well as the Xbox 360, PlayStation Portable, Game Boy Advance, Nintendo DS and PC. The game was a success and sold over 8 million copies.
The DS port, which was developed by Amaze Entertainment, is something different...
Why It Sucks
- The game is full of glitches and bugs, such as the camera option on the touch screen looking bugged in Free Play mode.
- Graphical glitches, such as the sky appearing and disappearing in one of the Episode V levels.
- At points the playable characters' body parts can appear and disappear, too.
- The music sounds quite bad for DS standards.
- Instead of FMV's (which would be added in later Lego games for the DS), we get poorly-made in-game cutscenes.
- Because of WIS #5, it's hard to tell what is even going on!
- You can fire lasers with a crossbow.
- Some of the levels in the game are just impossible because you wouldn't know what to do or where to go.
- The levels where you control vehicles is of really poor quality.
- The fact that this is actually licensed by Nintendo. (though it shouldn't be surprising since the number of shovelware released on the Nintendo DS is through the roof.)
- It feels very rushed and some characters you get to play as don't unlock for freeplay mode because the developers forgot to add it in the script.
- Some parts of the movies are missing, like Luke's training.
- For some reason in the hub of the game, if you're controlling a Jedi, the Rebels will attack you, despite the fact that Rebels and Jedis are supposed to be allies.
- The gameplay is mostly unchanged in this port.
- The controls are decent, despite being quite clunky.
- You can create 3 customisable characters instead of 2.
- It's at least better than many other shovelware on the system.
- Nice level design for most levels.
- The DS port of Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga was an improvement.
