Great game. Couple of glitchy spots if you are an achievment farmer but other then that it's a great game...a cross between WoW and Lego Star Wars Saga with incredible graphics and the comedic cut scenes that Lego game fans have come to love. Down side...magic usage is difficult and at times frustrating and there are a few Mithril Bricks that are stupidly hard to get.
So Traveller's Tales has gotten a bit lazy over time. The original games (the Star Wars trilogies) were a hit because they were fun, had amazing graphics and the gameplay was solid.
Unfortunately, there has been no true innovation or improvement as we have moved forward with the numerous sequels. Now I can understand the idea of not messing with a good thing, but they are definitely getting stale if not devolving.
The graphics are still good, the humor is less and now the gameplay is looser with some truly awful experiences at times.
How is it possible that you can take a game that used to be fun and make it worse? Well, it's easy if you add no improvements (don't count the voice acting...nothing special to capture actual sound clips from the movies), allow the formula to get stale and make the controls less tight.
My advice? Rent for the experience but definitely do not buy. If you happen to work for Traveller's Tales...please make the next project better rather than the same.
