Inside Mac Games Previews Lego Star Wars II

Inside Mac Games has posted a hands-on preview of Lego Star Wars II. Scheduled to be released in late March or early April, the game will be published for the Mac by Feral Interactive.

Here's a clip from the preview:

Star Wars story mode is the primary attention grabber of the game. In story mode, you take story-appropriate characters through the level vaguely summarizing the original Star Wars trilogy sequences. Obviously, I donít remember a big quest sequence for R2-D2 and C-3P0 on Princess Leiaís blockade runner during my first thousand viewings of the original trilogy, but maybe itíll appear in the extended-extended edition at some point in the future. Or maybe not. Anyhow, as you progress through Lego Star Wars II, youíll find icons with faces on them such as a Stormtrooper, Boba Fett, or just red or blue shimmering objects. These are signals telling you what kind of figure you need to pass through or manipulate that object. A droid face indicates a droid unit can only pass through, a Stormtrooper face means only an Imperial figure can pass through, and blue or red tints mean light side force users or dark side force users respectively can only manipulate the highlighted items. Specifically, on the Blockade Runner level there are multiple doors with a Stormtrooper face block on them. As R2-D2 or C-3P0, you canít pass through these doors, any more than a Stormtrooper can pass through one with a droid face on them! Legos being what they are, maybe thereís a way to get a non-Imperial figure through an Imperial doorÖ
