I have been a fan of Lego Star Wars since it first hit the PS2 with the first game. So I was very excited to see this one coming to the DS and the ability to take Star Wars along with us. And had the game actually undergone any sort of Quality Testing before it shipped, it might have been a dream come true. However the game as it stands now is almost impossible to play, and every single problem is a bug or design issue. Walls fall away, your character disappears for no reason and I have even fallen behind a wall twice now. Add to that the inability to see anything on the screen very clearly, horrible level design and parts of the game actually lagging because there is too much on the screen and it all adds up to a completely unenjoyable rendition of Lego Star Wars. I have compared it to the PC and PS2 versions, and this one is a waste of plastic and shipping time. Hands down one of the poorest DS games I have played yet. It honestly feels like playing a Beta, not a released title.

I was so excited about this game I ran right out to buy it for the DS the night it was released. And it was a lot of fun. I saw the glitches everyone else in here have talked about but I didn't let it get me down.
That was until the level where Han and Chewy are running around the Ewok city. Wow, just wow. Spent HOURS trying to figure out what was going on.
So I gave up on it, and because I have Gamefly, I rented the PSP version. If I had never rented this version I probably wouldn't be writing this review.
The PSP version is 100 times better than the DS! I figured this game was going to be very similar of exactly the same on every platform. I was so very wrong.
I gave this game a 1 because you just hit a wall and stop playing. That is just lame. I honestly wouldn't even recommend a rental. The problems with the game are THAT bad.
The game is actually very fun when it is working properly. Which is the majority of the time. But to get every unlockable sometimes the game is very unforgiving. The camera control is horrible in this aspect. You will be in the middle of a jump heading towards the camera and then in mid jump the camera flips 180 and so do the controls. In fact the best part of this game is the retelling of star wars through legos and all of the unlockables. This is not the system for it. They simply compressed it and ported it over and apparently did not test it at all. Multiplayer is fun however as well as the co-op. If anything that is what saved it. If the camera and glitches were fixed then this game would be awesome.
