Slim PS3 news: Eight great LEGO spoofs

Take a look at some of the best moments from the Star Wars, Harry Potter and Indiana Jones movies, recreated in hilarious LEGO fashion on PlayStation.

As the release of LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game on PlayStation 3 and PSP sails into view for a May 2011 release, we recollect eight of the most memorable scenes across the range of LEGO videogames to date.

LEGO Star Wars: The Video Game (PlayStation 2) – “We’ll handle this” No Star Wars fan can forget the first time they saw deadly Sith lord Darth Maul reveal his double bladed lightsaber. An epic battle ensues, with Maul taking on the fierce Jedi Qui-Gon Jin and his youthful apprentice Obi-Wan Kenobi. While Qui-Gon loses his life, he is avenged by Obi-Wan slicing Maul in two – perfectly recreated in LEGO Star Wars.

LEGO Star Wars: The Video Game (PS2) – “Only a Sith deals in absolutes”A lifelong friendship brought to a violent end, the duel between Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan is adapted into a platforming romp before lightsabers are drawn over a lava ravaged cavern. The end result is the creation of Darth Vader, who is an imposing individual even as a minifigure.

LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy (PlayStation 3, PSP, PS2) – “Sorry about the mess”Forget When Harry Met Sally – when space scoundrel Han Solo met bounty hunter Greedo the results were nothing short of explosive. In both the movie and game, Han shoots Greedo dead before the little green alien can claim the bounty on Han’s head. In true LEGO style, Greedo’s fate is a little less grisly, as Han’s laser blast turns his foe into a harmless pile of green bricks.

LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy (PS3, PSP, PS2) – “No… I am your father” In one of the most iconic scenes in movie history, the villainous Darth Vader duels with trainee Jedi, Luke Skywalker, before cutting off Luke’s hand and uttering his devastating revelation. The rousing emotion of the film’s moment is brilliantly turned on its head in classic, tongue-in-cheek LEGO, style, as Vader pulls out an old family photo as proof of Luke’s parentage.

LEGO Harry Potter Years 1 – 4 (PS3, PSP) – “Welcome, Harry, to Diagon Alley”Harry Potter has an incredible introduction to the world of witches and wizards when he arrives at Diagon Alley. Hidden from the eyes of non-magical folk (Muggles), this London street is full of treasures and the game captures this sense of wonder with magical objects and hilariously recreated places such as The Leaky Cauldron pub and Gringotts Wizarding Bank.

LEGO Harry Potter Years 1 – 4 (PS3, PSP) – “Troll in the dungeon!”When the cowardly Professor Quirrell finds a brutish troll in Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, guess who runs into it? Harry and Ron are the poor students who have to deal with the dangerous monster in the school bathrooms, with the game turning the incident into a boss fight. It takes more than a club on the head to put this troll down…

LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures (PS3, PSP) – “Throw me the idol, I’ll throw you the whip!”It’s been spoofed many times, yet only LEGO can make Dr Jones’ escape from a giant boulder look as cute as it is menacing. Indy is eventually caught by the rolling rock and fired out of the booby trapped temple, only to be forced into giving up the precious idol he risked his life for in the first place.

LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures (PS3, PSP) – “Look out!”The fight on the Flying Wing is one of the most intense scenes from Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, and it’s captured brilliantly in the game. Indy’s battle with a hulking Nazi mechanic is given a twist with comedy anvils and a startling finale which thankfully isn’t quite as gruesome as the original.

Why not experience these and many more classic moments for yourself? Build some colourful memories with the LEGO titles on PlayStation and get ready for LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean on PlayStation 3 and PSP in May 2011.
