This game blows my mind, i just love everything about it the graphics aren't bad; the adventure is good along with everything else..... i strongly recomend you get this if you like star wars, rpg games andlegos ;)
I really enjoyed this game and surprisingly so did my wife and kids.
This game was true to Star Wars and yet had a twist that was fun and fresh. I was so excited to play this game that I really didn't follow any order but the game covers all of the original Star Wars movies, with a few extras. I was most impressed with the cut-scenes and in game movies.
Unfortunately there were a few things that I found upsetting while playing. The drop-in/drop-out co-op feature is a lot of fun but make sure your buddy stays close. If you or your co-partner wander too far from the playing field your character may become unplayable and you have to select start to jump back into game play. Also I found that the AI was more of a burden than a help. At times the AI was in the way or just didn't help when you really needed it. You'll find that through free play your AI partner will help you get to certain areas of a level. For example if an elevator must be activated by a Jedi power your AI friend will help you get a free ride. But while you are busy firing away at storm troopers your AI just sits there. Oh and I found a number of in-game glitches. At one point I did a Jedi lightsaber move and my character froze. I had to select another character to continue play. During free play at Escape from Hoth Base I found a secret area and yet couldn't get back to the level, I had to shutdown and start all over.
But if you are looking for a game that the entire family can play, this is a great game! I certainly enjoyed it.
