By far the best Star Wars game I have ever played. With all of the gore and violence (things I truly love in a game) out there, it was fun and exciting to sit back and play this light hearted game. I laughed, sometimes belly laughed at the artistic license taken with scenes from the movie. I must say I was truly entertained for hours and hours on end. Good Job!!! Can't wait to see the Indiana Jones version.
I'll welcome another lego star wars game, as long as it's better than the previous. The complete saga is a better game than any of the previous games, but when they came out with lego star wars 2, why didn't they make it the complete saga then instead of just episodes 4,5, and 6? Well, let's get to the game, shall we? There are all the levels from the first two games and some new levels, new challenges, bonus levels, all the characters and ships from the last games plus some new characters and ships, and a long time of playing to unlock everything! You will get bored with it after you've beaten the story, so the search for the minikit pieces, red bricks, and all the other stuff, sorta pays off, (achievements, ect.) but it isn't that fun. Another thing to mention is that some of the minikits are almost impossible to find, so you'll spend about 30 hours searching for the red brick that gives you the minikit detector. Also, the story can be frustrating, too. There is also 2 player online co-op. All in all, lego star wars is a great family game that has a wide array of things to do and take a long time to complete, unlike most games, and has all the main captivating moments of star wars. In lego plastic!
This is a must rent and possible buy for the billions of Star Wars fanboys out there who still have their toys from childhood (and in many cases probably bought new ones when the prequels were released).
The two trilogy games previously released have been lavished with compliments for the fun way they handled the story using legos, and now you can get all of this in one package plus some extras.
Arranging your own lego characters from parts of Lando, Amidala, Luke, C3-PO, and Darth Maul can be endless fun. There is also an unlockable Indiana Jones lego character if you watch the trailer for the upcoming Indy Lego game.
The characters are as cute as cute can be, and the gameplay is good for the style that they are going for and there's lots of replayability. It's not high art or anything though. At times, I felt like I was playing a kid's platform game. But the overall experience is nothing short of fun and extreme silliness.
Rent this game and prove the existence of your inner Star Wars nerd. Or if the force is truly with you, you may as well go ahead and buy it.
