Apple Games Features LEGO Star Wars II
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

The latest feature from Apple Games provides a wealth of information about LEGO Star Wars II, the sequel to the best selling original game. In addition to a review of the game's features the article also includes comments from Traveller's Tales Games' Jonathan Smith. As a bonus readers can peruse a short history of the Star Wars franchise and check out hints and cheats for the game.

As in the previous game, you play through a LEGO-ized version of each film’s story, collecting mini-kit pieces used to assemble vehicles and scooping up studs, the currency of the LEGO Star Wars universe. When you complete a level, visit the cantina bartender to trade your studs for hints, unlocked characters and ships, bonus goodies, and gold bricks. You can unlock over 50 characters and even bring in another 50-plus from the first game, enabling you to, for example, put Darth Maul on Endor or send Qui-Gon Jinn to the Death Star.

LEGO Star Wars II goes beyond the original by giving you creatures and vehicles, such as Tauntauns and landspeeders, to ride during many of the on-foot levels. In addition, the spaceship levels are no longer on rails, offering the freedom to move at will around open environments, such as space battles and asteroid fields. You can even switch between ships in Free Play, the same way you can move between characters in the on-foot levels, and now you can hop in your mini-kit vehicles and take them for a bonus level spin after you collect all the necessary parts, rather than just look at them.
The game should be available soon from Feral Interactive. Head over to Apple's site to read the rest of the review.
