Talking Point: Two Years On, Did LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga Live Up To The Hype?

This month marks two years since LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga finally arrived after years and years' worth of anticipation, with many fans back then expecting it to become the biggest and best LEGO game of all time.

Now, as we look back in 2024, it definitely feels like the "biggest" to us. The Skywalker Saga is absolutely packed with massive open areas across nine films' worth of content, and there are loads of side attractions to engage with as well. But is it the best? Although we gave it a "Great" 8/10 at the time, there are a lot of superb LEGO games out there.

And you know what? We'd possibly even argue that it's not the best LEGO Star Wars game. In this writer's opinion at least, LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens feels more focused and challenging than The Skywalker Saga, and therefore is perhaps the better package. The Metacritic rating is very similar between the two titles as well.

So, what do you think? Did LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga live up to the hype, or did you find yourself not really engaging with it as much as you expected? Don't forget it's on Xbox Game Pass if you want to try it!
