Worth a rent if you're a Star Wars nut

The game is fairly simplistic although it's plagued by bad camera angles, repetitive platform jumping, and a small amount of variation between combat, challenges, and platform jumping.

The formula is used a lot throughout this game and I imagine it'll be worthwhile if you're looking for a game to play with your kid cousin or child. You won't find much challenge here but you will find a somewhat lengthy game with some fun to offer.

Pros:
+ Lightsaber. Who doesn't like wielding one?
+ You run into many characters of the Star Wars saga
+ Lengthy levels
+ Shop to spend points
+ Variation between characters
+ Co-op is enjoyable with kin

Cons:
- Terrible camera angles. You'll find yourself jumping into pits a lot because you can't always tell where you're jumping to
- Game mechanics could use work. I'm already tired of my character failing to grab a ledge or land properly on a platform
- Variation, while there, can be repetitive still

Overall, it's not a bad game and I think the negative reviews are much too harsh and fail to offer any real criticism but I say if you're a Star Wars nut or you're looking for a game to play with the family, this isn't a bad choice.

Control: Need a lot of help from jumping, to perception when you jump, sometimes when you jump on a ledge or if you climb up on something your character will get stuck.
Graphics: Was not to bad especially if you like the cartoon it seems like you are in one movie or episode. However with this graphics it was hard to get my depth perception down and that kind of cartooning graphics is not enjoyable to me.
Story: Was the only thing good about the whole game with the fact that you can play Jedi and the Clone troopers.

yah, these other reviews are definitely TOO harsh, and this IS NOT a legos game, tru its similar, but much more to it and more fun. dont expect a great star wars game , but do be prepared for repitition and jumping off ledges from bad angles tho.
