Episode Summary

Lego Star Wars, Forza Motorsport, Delta Force Xtreme and more!
On tonight's episode of X-Play, we review LEGO Star Wars. When pondering the building blocks of a successful video game, one may think of many things--among them, eye-popping graphics, intuitive control, and clever gameplay. You don't usually think of LEGOs, but in this case, that would also be an acceptable answer. LEGO Star Wars brings back exciting two-player action while hitting all the high points of Episodes I through III. And everyone has a little rivet on their head to boot.

Will the Xbox ever get its equivalent of the spectacular Gran Turismo series? Will anyone ever be able to match what Sony and Polyphony Entertainment have accomplished with the franchise? Up until the release of Forza Motorsport, the answer would have been a resounding "no!" Now, that resounding no has become a forceful "maybe!"

Delta Force was one of the titles that helped popularize the tactical first-person shooter genre back in the late '90s. “Xtreme” is an intentional misspelling of one of the most over-used words of the 2000’s--a word that attempts to imply action and drama but conversely makes people think of bargain-bin monster truck videos. Combine the two together and you get Delta Force: Xtreme, a lackluster update to a classic game that provides a bit of knuckle-headed fun, but ultimately proves better graphics do not a better game make.moreless
