The awesome (At least imo) series Star Wars: The Clone Wars made an excellent opportunity for a Lego follow up on Star Wars. And Lego took this and made Lego Star Wars 3: The Clone Wars. When I first heard of the game, I thought it would be absolutely fun and occupying just like the first two games. My expectations were not let down. They were exceeded.
A really neat new component to the game is in some missions the two characters you utilize throughout the level can now be in completely two different places. And you will have to switch between the two characters frequently to reach your ultimate objective. This makes for a fresh and innovative experience. The game has also brought back the things that made it great in the first place as well. Such as a huge Character list which you will constantly unlock from as you progress through the game.
Aside from that, if you aren't a puzzle-solving kind of person, don't buy this game. You may want to rent it just to make sure your not missing out, but to even get through one level, you have to solve several puzzles. Not particularly hard, but you just have to keep a sharp eye out and be patient because chances are there will be multiple moments where you get stuck and are frustrated. However, its an important part of the Lego experience. And of course, if you are that thinking puzzle-solving kind of player, then waste no time and rent the game! And you'll probably end up buying it.
Now unlike almost every other game out there that doesn't have Multiplayer, this game has replay value. Just like the previous installments. There is a mode that you can choose when beginning a level if you've already beat it called "Free Play" in which you can play through and be able to change to many different characters enabling you to have more fun, collect more points, and obtain hidden objects that count up and eventually unlock even more things for you to check out.
Even teens like me(16)can love this. Join the Clone Wars!
I just played the demo...I have to say I was kinda torn between The lego star wars saga....And now a new one? i cant keep up! LOL but I do love them all just as much. They bring back the classic look and feel with some new stuff thrown in! Clone Wars 3 puts you in the drivers seat with a brick on the gas...The levels where so star wars just feels right...Its based of the story from the hit cartoon network show haveing the same name.....I only hope they dont come out with a saga later on....sucks to re-buy games LOL!
