Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga has everything you need to have an extraordinary time alone or with a friend. It even has a variety of accessibility options that can help make your stoner combat feel right across the galaxy. Instead of getting out of sync with the Force, check out how to customize The Skywalker Saga’s display and behavior to suit your unique needs. After all, you’re not going to unlock all of Star Wars’ mysteries unless you’re one with the Force. Here are some of the best accessibility options worth considering when playing through Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga.
The scrolling words that play at the beginning of each movie’s story section are great, but I have to read through the whole game. If, like me, you also need subtitles to have an idea of what’s going on, you’re in luck. With Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga you can turn on subtitles for the entire game and change the way words look and appear on screen to help you get things just right. You’ll need it too, with nine full movies to watch. Unless you’re a fan of classic Lego theater, in which case there’s Mumble mode.
2. Automatic health recovery
Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga can quickly become chaotic, especially during some of the larger battles or some of the more intense one-on-one encounters. Enabling automatic health recovery in Accessibility gives you more time to breathe in the moments when you need it. It’s also perfect if you’re more interested in the ride itself and less in bumping into things along the way. It also pairs well with another thoughtful inclusion, namely Fall Recovery.
3. Recovery from a fall
There are some great heights in the Star Wars universe, and you’ll likely fall down often. It’s sometimes hard not to do that when you have an exciting adventure ahead of you all the time. And you can double jump! It’s easy to fall to your death and pieces in lego games which is both fun and frustrating. If you enable fall recovery in the accessibility options, fall damage will be completely removed and you can just keep moving. Borderlands was right about removing fall damage and I’m not ashamed to always enable it when more games like this allow me to. Thank you Traveler’s Tales.
4. Change quick taps
The quick taps in The Skywalker Saga are relatively forgiving, especially compared to the PS2 era, but they’re still difficult for some players, and that’s okay. Thankfully, you have two options, both of which enhance this QTE-era relic. You can set Quick Taps to a hold setting, which allows you to hold button prompts instead of tapping the button until an on-screen gauge fills.
Alternatively, you can simply turn these prompts into regular buttons. Setting Quick Taps to the automatic setting changes taps and holds into single interactions. That means more jumping, slashing, and using the power of the Force instead of playing with switches. Unless you play on your Nintendo Switch.
5. Hints, detailed aim help and motion blur
There are many features to explore in The Skywalker Saga, but you may want to learn everything yourself. Customizing the delivery of clues gives you that freedom, although it’s easy to get lost without the help of clues or a protocol droid. However, Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is packed with content and you’ll likely learn everything you need to know before you’ve seen everything there is to see. Set hints the way you want for a more optimal experience.
The Aim Assist options are nice too. I actually quite appreciated the near-target slow, especially during some of the more frantic fights. Slowing down the reticle when close to a target has made it much easier for me to focus on the overall action and less on lining up each individual shot. The Stormtroopers are realistically bad at aiming, so you can have fun without them. Still, it’s a good option and worth trying.
Motion blur and camera shake are captivating and exciting for some, but distracting for others. I often find myself trying to disable both as quickly as possible, so I was glad when The Skywalker Saga let me do just that. When combined and used intentionally, accessibility options can make gaming more exciting, rewarding, and fun for all of us. Don’t forget to review all accessibility options before you travel.
Video games are meant to be fun, especially Lego games, so make sure everything is set just right for the best experience. These include cheat codes, which are a must; Don’t tell me you aren’t a little curious about unlocking characters from the Star Wars Holiday Special.
