A step up from the previous Lego Star Wars attempt

The game looks pretty when you are standing still but there is some occasional slow down once you and your AI partner start moving about. And moving about is all you can really expect from that AI partner. I don't recall Obi Wan ever staring blankly at the wall while his friends were pelted by enemy laser fire in the movies. Obi Wan in Lego Star Wars, however, is happy to count ceiling tiles while enemy droids rip you limb from lego limb. Not that any of that matters really. If your health meter runs out you respawn immediately and soldier on.
I also had some small gripes with the controls. A d-pad isn't fantastic for a "3-d" adventure game. Rubbing the touch screen with my thumb to activate force powers was a bit awkward as well. All in all this isn't a bad game but it's a much better experience on the consoles. I had a tough time taking a step backwards with this DS version and still enjoying myself.

This game was fun at first but when I went back to play it I could not do it. This is because the levels were rather boring. Honestly the only levels I liked were the vehicle levels. These levels were what brought me back to the game. Besides that it was pretty decent for the most part. I love to break things to collect studs and buy the characters. This was always my favorite part in the first game in 2005. Its a decent game for kids.
