How to play LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga on Mac


Game summary

Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is a third-person action-adventure with an open world hub. Unlike previous Lego games in which players had to advance through the story in a linear order, players can now choose to start the game from any of the main Skywalker Saga episodes and complete them in any order they wish. Each episode has their own hub filled with planets featured prominently in each respective film that can be visited and explored. Each episode will have five story missions each, a total of 45 levels. Combat has also been revamped, such as lightsaber fights now involving a variety of combos with light attacks, heavy attacks, and Force moves, and blaster characters having an over-the-shoulder camera angle featured in many third-person shooter games. Random encounters will also happen in the game's hub. For example, an Imperial Star Destroyer will suddenly jump out of hyperspace and send a fleet of TIE Fighters after the player. Players can choose to engage in dogfights with them or continue onward to progress the story. The game will have more than 200 playable characters, though TT Games has said that number will change.

🕹 Editor's notes

The Lego Star Wars The Skywalker Saga is a game based on all the nine Star Wars movies. TT Games, the developers, re-envisions all the nine films and adds new ideas and features. Let us look at some of the best features before we go ahead with the details.


  • Kyber Bricks and Datacards.
  • New all-angle camera.
  • Comes with the complete Star Wars saga.
  • Enhanced combat skills.

The previous version of the game had a top-down camera experience, but the Skywalker Saga has changed it to a third-person view. The idea of the game is for you to travel to an area where you have to complete several missions. Once the missions are over in one area, you will go to the next level with more missions.

The developers have made significant changes to the game compared to the previous version. Players can now use characters with different attacking options, and the game allows characters to shoot over their shoulders. You can build a bunker using Lego bricks to protect yourself from enemy shooters.

When I played the game, I was overwhelmed by the number of missions I had to complete to move on to the next hub. Collecting over a thousand blue Kyber Bricks is crucial, which discouraged me at times as it requires a lot of hard work.

This game can kill your enthusiasm if you are not up for the challenge. I had to ask myself sometimes why the developers made it a necessity to see and do many things. I felt some parts of the game were underdeveloped and needed work.

On the bright side, the Skywalker Saga game truly captures the essence of the Star Wars movies and is a delight to the eyes. The developers did an excellent job of using the original movie soundtracks and effects in the game, giving the players a sense of nostalgia.

I enjoyed that the game had fantastic humor and gameplay design in the main missions. My only suggestion is that the tasks during a mission can be shaved off a little.
