I have been a fan of the lego series for awhile now. I loved the star wars and Batman versions of the game. However I did ot like teh Harry Potter one. Harry Potter in my opinion was way to much puzzle and little action. In Star wars 3 they brought back alot of non-stop action and mixed just enough puzzle into it to balance it out.
I think there is nothing better than grabbing anakin or obi wan and using a light saber to hack and slash through armies of drones. Using the force to throw objects and enemies around and watching them crumble into little lego pieces. I already pit about 8 hours into the game and I'm still not done the story mode.
This game is a definate rent for anyone as it is safe for kids just like all lego games.
In the past, Lego Star Wars has been dreading to be updated graphic-wise. As of 2011, it has. I've enjoyed the Lego games in the last few years. Although Indiana Jones and Batman didn't meet my liking. So far my favorite has been Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4. That game was IMPRESSIVE. Makes up for the failure of Lego Batman. I played the demo of Lego Star Wars III a couple months before the game released and WOW...I noticed a HUGE improvement in the graphics and the gameplay mechanics overall. I'm going to try to make my thoughts short and simple about this game and all it is is "PLAY IT! It's a BLAST!" I'm don't approve much of the animated television series (and the new trilogy 1999-2005) but this game is GOOD. I give it a 7 out of 10. Next in line is Lego Pirates of the Caribbean. Check out my reviews for Legend of the Guardians: The Owl's of Ga'Hoole and Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs for Xbox 360. My next review will be for Rango (Xbox 360) as soon as Gamefly ships it and I play it.
