Perfect

Lego StarWars III

This game is so entertaining. It is also a game for getting exercise and getting your heart pumping. Just ask my 5 year old grandson. He jumps around more than the characters and yet doesn't miss anything on the game. He can play it better than I can and I have been playing video games forever. You name the system and I have played it.

Button mashing nightmare!!! Confusing puzzles. Overall the levels are just boring. What happened to the original style where you locate items to "build" allowing you to get to other area. A HUGE step backwards for the franchies. Highly recommend you play the early Lego games.

One thing you can say about this third LEGO Star Wars game- it certainly is the best looking in the franchise. Starships and planet environments are nicely detailed, and the revamped hub world (actually, two battling starships) is a welcome change. There's not much to say about gameplay- if you've played other LEGO games in the series, you're probably going to enjoy this. Hours can just fly by, whether you're engaged in the story missions (based off the first two seasons of "Star Wars: The Clone Wars") or engaged in exploring the hub world (which is huge in size). There's plenty to do and collect, from characters to vehicles to starfighters. It takes awhile too to open up parts of the hub and the universe, so those deciding to make this a purchase will certainly get their money's worth. Sadly, with all this fun comes the same old frustrations. The camera is still not your friend- it often works against you, especially if you're a solo player. Those who opt for co-op might fare a bit better. Also, the game is not always clear as to what you need to do next- it goes from major hand holding to just not giving any real clues. You eventually figure it out, but not before you start swearing at the game, "What do I need to do?" And why the bolts aren't attracted to you ala "Ratchet and Clank" I can't understand. You'd think Traveller's Tales would have borrowed that bit from that other successful combat-platforming space franchise. Still, the game makes great use of the license, and there's so much to do you may end up having enough fun that you don't mind the frustrating parts. Definitely worth renting. A purchase depends on how big a fan you are of the LEGO games, but you will get your money's worth. Enjoy!
