alot of people were saying that if you liked lego starwars you'll like this game. Well, I didnt like Lego Star Wars and i thought this game was alot better then it. Sure, its a kids game, but that doesnt mean it cant be fun for adults. I liked earning lego money and upgrading the different weapons and armor. Controls are a little weird. like FPS for kids. other then that it was fun.
After playing through the first level (which consists of 4 stages the 4th being a brief 'boss battle') you know exactly what the rest of the game is, as the exact same format is followed level after level. Stage one.. find the boss and destroy, Stage 2 find the power orb. Stage 3.. find the boss now slighty stronger and destroy... stage 4 just the boss.. and destroy. While the backgrounds and animations change slightly from level to level, basically what you saw in level 1, is what you will tackle in level 5.
On my own I would have not played this game for very long, however, my 2 kids did enjoy the brief cut-scenes as well as the VERY simple gameplay. It is impossible for I think the most casual gamer to 'die' in this game. I did enjoy playing each level with my 2 kids and I taking turns on each stage.
It is light years below the Star Wars LEGO games, but still certainly worthy to be in your GameQ if you have 6-12 year old (boys I'd say) or if you like your games simple with few surprises.
6 out of 10. Playing with the family. 2 out of 10. If playing alone.
