My 8yr old Son played the game the minute when he got home from school and got it from the mailbox, and when I got home from work about 3hrs later, he said I could send it back. That's a 1st for him.
He's a fan of the ninja LEGO's and the cartoon series, but said that "you just point, they move, and you can't do anything". Yes, I know that's kind of the gist that they show on the box, but he had zero fun with it.
I'd recommend steering clear, but if you don't, then definitely rent it and see for yourself - a definite don't buy! We're sticking with playing LEGO SW3.

dont listen to the others who gave these to there 10-8 year olds, im 14(therefore qualify as adult fan of lego) and loved this game. the game is gets pretty challengeing as you go on(i think the develpers said"lets give them a while to get aquainted, then on level 6 lets screw them" the movies that came with it were very interesting, and suprisingly dark for a lego game. (not scary or disturbing, but in movies jokes were rare.) the problems to this game are some terrible ai, heel turn on dificulty, and side missions that get annoying.
prods are:interesting story, loads amount of replay value(at the end of the story mode you unlock a skeleton campeign) and requires patience and stretegy.
overall, a pretty good game. a rent, and maybe a buy.
