My son LOVES Lego Star Wars and has the games for the PC and for GameCube (which we use on our Wii). If ever a game was made for the Wii it is this one -- imagine using the Wiimote for a light saber! We were so excited when it came out and it went to the top of our Q long before its release.
We were disappointed though -- the Wiimote does not act like a light saber and in fact has very little to do with the game other than as a button controller. There are enough times that shaking or waving the wiimote do anything at all, and every move/control is done by pressing buttons. EA, you could have done MUCH better with this one.
That said, my son still enjoyed it -- if we didn't expect so much because it was on the Wii we would have been much happier with it. As always the game is age appropriate and non-violent (lego pieces come apart when hit, but nobody dies). It is still a fun game and this one has new options not available in the other two games (the Star Wars I and II it combines). If we didn't already own I and II it would be worth buying -- as it is it is not enough different to make it worthwhile.
