Plenty of games have my attention this month, so I’ve got a few honourable mentions. Lots of sci-fi and fantasy stuff going on in this particular month.As ever, I shall start with those honourable mentions.
– CRYSTAR – A Switch version of the game was recently released, and I was curious about Rei’s journey to save her sister. Has been pretty fun so far.
– Kirby and the Forgotten Land – My intent was to make this my Game of the Month for April, but I completed it 100% before April even arrived… It is such a good game, and definitely sitting alongside Kirby’s Adventure Wii as one of my favourites in the franchise. Kirby’s first foray into 3D (in a main title, at least) is pretty much a must-own game for the Switch.
– Neptunia x SENRAN KAGURA: Ninja Wars – Now, I like Neptunia. I also like Senran Kagura. But which one is better? Only one way to find out! FIGHT! Harry Hill’s TV Burp reference aside, two franchises I like have a crossover game, and the Switch is getting a version this month. Count me in.
– Rune Factory 5 – The fifth Rune Factory is the first to offer same sex marriage options, so of course I’m playing as the female character and working towards romancing the bachelorettes. Fuuka is looking like my favourite at the moment.
With that done, the main game I want to feature here is… well, maybe if you clear your mind, you’ll be able to sense it.So yeah, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is the game I’ll be featuring here. The LEGO Star Wars games are fun, and this entry allows you to play through all nine Star Wars films.
There’s loads of characters to play as, with each one providing different abilities based on what type of character they are. Jedi are able to move objects with the Force, whereas Scavengers can craft tools to help them reach out of the way areas.
There’s a lot of different character classes, and then there are multiple characters within each one. There’s quite a bit going on in the game, and you’ll need to revisit some story sections in Free Play later one to pick up collectibles you didn’t have access to the first time around.
Being Star Wars, there are also space battles – and again, there’s quite the selection of ships available to use. Of course the familiar ones such as the X-Wing or the Millennium Falcon are very much presence and accounted for, but there are some pretty obscure ones for you to unlock.
On the subject of X-Wings, this game may have use Jedi mind tricks to convince me to buy a LEGO Resistance X-Wing, and Luke Skywalker’s X-Wing Fighter as well. Yeah, I’d say this game is a pretty effective advert. Definitely considering getting the LEGO Imperial TIE Fighter as well…
But it is a game, first and foremost, and a lot of fun. Great humour, as well.
