Summary: Just like it's predecessor, Lego Star Wars 2: The Original Trilogy is a strangely fun and addictive take on George Lucas' classic fantasy universe, using Lego blocks for just about everything in the game. This makes the game series not only family friendly, but a blast to play regardless of your age. Now the series makes it's debut on the DS, and while it still provides some of the fun found on the home console versions, something has noticibly been lost in translation.
Summary: Lego Star Wars is perhaps one of the best games to be released this year. It's absolutely fantastic in it's execution. As usual, though, the handheld versions get the short end of the stick. The PSP version of Lego Star Wars is just about the same as the console version. I was expecting the DS version to be identical, but on a less graphical scale. I was wrong.
Conclusion: This game is OK to play but the graphics arn't that good. Many of the levels are really confusing and I have had to use walkthroughs to help me do it. Near the end of the game is a level which is almost impossible to complete because you can't see what you are doing due to the dodgey camera angles. It isn't an easy game so I found it very annoying when the screen froze during a game. It does this quite a bit.
