Friday night I had some free time so I decided to finish off TCS. I thought I only had an hour to put into it to get the last of the blue minikits, 2 & 1/2 hours later and I'd got the last of them and was still only at 98.2%

Not sure what I've got left to do. Possibly the Super Stories for each which means another 6 hours.


The super stories contribute to your overall completion percentage, so that could be what you're missing. The amount of times you need to go through those levels to get 100% is not funny



I've already done the super stories twice for each (once for studs, the other for time) and now it looks like I'll have to do it a third. It took me months to build up the motivation when I thought I only had an hour to go, god knows when I'll get it finished.

The super stories are the only thing stopping me from getting the full 1000gp on SW:TCS.  At around an hour per run, I just didn't have the time or the inclination to do more than one at a time, and eventually even that became a chore.  I never did finish the original trilogy's super stories and have now swapped the game. Someday I'll get my hands on it again and finish it off, but with 3 Lego games completed from scratch in the last few weeks and Indy 2 started and Batman 2 and LOTR on the way, I'm in no rush!

Hobbsy, just go with whatever one takes your fancy, they've all got their fun traits.  Batman was very enjoyable and by all accounts the sequel is even better.  You should be able to pick up the older games for a song these days too.  Ah, if only you had a 360...but then you'd be playing Dawnguard and wouldn't have time for Lego games!

Hmmm. Well if you've done the super stories already, I can't see why you'd need to do them again.... Have you checked that you've bought all the characters, all the tips etc? It's easy to miss the Indiana Jones character - have you bought him?

I love how the Ringwraiths turn to clowns

Having not played any of the Lego games but very tempted, what's a good one to start with? Can I just dive straight in with the Batman one? Definitely getting the LotR one

I reckon the first Lego Batman or Lego Indy are a good place to start. What I've seen of Lego Batman 2 seems pretty decent, but you may not appreciate the changes that have been made unless you experience 'the old formula' first

The first Lego Star Wars and Lego Indy were great fun, the updated versions not so much. But I'll put in that Lego Pirates of the Caribbean was a blast, although Jack Sparrow's walk/run takes time getting used to

Also Lego have stated that they'll be doing games for both hobbit films too

So I've nearly got my 100% on Lego Batman 2 and got Lego Harry Potter years 5-7 waiting for me, my question is I saw years 1-4 for 15 today, should I get and play that before touching 5-7?

I should have your HP 5-7 back in the post by the end of the week sharky. I'm on 82% now. I just need to mop up the character tokens and Hogwart crests for Year 7 parts 1 and 2 and then the bonus level and I'm done. I've really enjoyed it so far although it is starting to feel like more of a grind in the freeplay runs now (I think that's mainly because I've had to go back to some levels a third time as I missed the Student in Peril). Thankfully there's no time turner shenanigans in this one, that's something that did my head in somewhat in Years 1-4. There's absolutely no rush whatsoever for Deus Ex back by the way.

Got Lego Batman on high priority on Lovefilm so hopefully I shouldn't have to wait too long for that.

I've had the in-laws over all week so I'm afraid I've not even had a chance to fire up the xbox never mind run through Deus Ex!  Still got a few chievos on Captain America that I need to get before that goes back to lovefilm (a surprisingly decent little game BTW if you're looking to add some more to your lovefilm list!), but hopefully I'll get a crack at this soon.

Lego Batman 2 done and dusted, and, after thinking that collecting all the gold bricks around the city was going to be a massively dull grind, it was actually incredibly fun.

Is it wrong that exacyly half of my platinum trophies are Lego games?

Hurry up LOTR

Lego Harry Potter Years 5-7 done and dusted.

Great little game although it pissed me off that there were no Student in Peril detectors in it. I had to go back to a few levels a third time because I'd missed the SiP's which was a bit of a pain in the arse.

Lego Batman 2 can wait for a bit now, I'm all studded out at the moment .

I know that feeling well. When going to bed at night (well, stupid o'clock in the morning after another marathon session) I would see studs every time I closed my eyes.

Still not been able to bring myself to go back to TCW. Only Lego game that I haven't got any enjoyment out of.

Should be popping the last achievement in Lego Indy 2 later tonight, so I'll send it on to YFU over the weekend - should still have the address, but if not I'll drop a PM. Been a bit of a chore to be honest - you can tell they were still experimenting with the new hub set-up - but still gave plenty of enjoyment. I think I'll take a lego break now, and save Batman 2 for when it comes down a bit in price.

Yes mate. Could you PM YFU with your address? He can send it to you once he's completed it.

Currently working through Lego Harry Potter 1-4 and bloody loving it. I was a little apprehensive because I'm not the biggest Potter fan and haven't even seen the movies but the game is great fun. I like what they've done with Hogwarts - allowing you to explore it and unlock little bits of it as you learn new spells/abilities. Great stuff.

I love both the LHPs, 5-7 slightly less than 1-4.

Just ploughing my way to the end of Lego Batman 2 - a marked improvement over the first game for me. Although it is the first Lego game that I've had glitch out on me so much. Constant freezing, chucking me out of levels or things not appearing in Free Roam that should be there. Considering the last 2 Lego games I played were Clone Wars (Ok, bit of a grind) and Indy 2 (my least favourite), I'm loving it though. Can't wait for LOTR.
