If you love the franchise and cannot get enough of it on the next gen platforms, pick up the DS version. The levels are recognizable, but different enough to give a fresh experience.
I found none of the bugs that plagued the LSWII DS version in this one as it was built from scratch thankfully.
The DS version keeps True Jedi gold bricks for both Story mode and Free Play mode. I prefer this over the new approach with next gen LSW:TCS using a new challenge mode in replacement of a True Jedi.
Criticism: TT Fusion should have gone with a larger cartridge size so they could have had the room needed to make all 36 main levels (instead of only 30), improved some levels like Speeder Showdown to be closer to the original, and have smoother cut-scenes. The extras like Indiana Jones and good outdoor Cantina area are missing. There is a lot less incentive to collect all gold bricks.
Overall this title has set the standard for 3D DS action games. I look forward to more developments from TT Fusion.

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 is FUN

There are a lot of things to unlock and explore in the levels and that's what makes this game fun. Running to the end of a level isn't very exciting; but going back in with different characters is. And the fact that you have to unlock the characters makes the game even more enjoyable.
My feeling is that this is a great game for all ages. I'm very happy with it and am seriously thinking about purchasing it.

Some Quaint Charms But Nothing Special

Shortcomings aside, there are a number of fun things to do in the game. You collect studs (small LEGO bricks) throughout the game, giving you the ability to purchase new characters and new mini games in the cantina (which serves as kind of a base of operations). Earning new characters is always interesting because new types of characters give you access to different areas of the levels. For instance, only protocol droids can unlock certain doors. And not all Jedi are created equal. Some have better moves than others, such as Yoda, clearly the best of the bunch. There are also minikits and special bricks to collect in each level that you have to find. If there is a challenge to this game, finding them is it, though all they do is unlock more mini games.
In all, it was a fun play for a short period of time, but I was really desiring something with a bit more substance by the end. I think it is a great game for young kids who won't get bored with the lack of challenge on long car trips, but for those craving something more, I recommend checking out other adventure games.
