@JDMSTER I have not played any recent Lego games but I will probably end up buying this one. I really enjoyed the previous Lego Star Wars games and I am interested in seeing how they fill in some of the gaps between RotJ and TFA.
From the gameplay I saw it needs work everyone uses the same weapon (no sniper either) and spawn camping is there ( the first spawn point the imperials have the rebels have a vantage point they quickly obtain and slaughter the imperials) the jet pack is needed but it takes to long to recharge, for it to be useful and the map just feels empty there are large open spaces were you die from lucky shots as for the powerups no one bothers and the health regeneration is op especially with the rate the guns overheat.
@Sharky To be honest I don’t see Gungans as that bad. If Lucas would of made Jar Jar more serious then there would probably be a better perspective on their race. Maybe like French missionaries (Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon) stumble upon a Native (Jar Jar) that guides them through their homeland to stop an invasion from the British (Trade Federation). I always liked Roos Tarpals though, he seemed like a awesome serious military leader.
