Summary: Lego Star Wars received a skeptical look by me when it first came out. Of course, as a kid in America I played with Legos all the time. In 1985 I started playing video games as a kid and soon replaced those little Legos. Now in 2006, I find myself playing with both again. What a blast. Lego Star Wars as a video game is actually quite developed. Besides the familiarity with the popular Star Wars story, the game concepts are awesome.
Summary: First of all I would like to say that all the people who write reviews out there and give it a 1 star rating because it won't run on their computer, are morons. They shouldn't give a game a bad rating because their computer doesn't have the system requirements. That's the computer's problem not the game's. And because of the people who write such stupid "reviews" other people are going to look at the average rating and say, "Oh, only 3 stars, not worth the money.
Summary: I bought this game for my 8 year old son. We've had a great time playing. It's taken him about two months of Saturday and Sunday morning play (at about 2 hours per day) to complete it; but there's no sign that he's given up on it yet. This game allows two players to play together and cooperate; so as another reviewer mentioned it makes for good father-son time. I was surprized to read about all the graphics problems.
Summary: ...this is it! Admittedly, my husband, 5-yr old daughter and I have probably played this game for more than 10 hours fromthe last 2 months, We love it! My 5 yr old can easily play and they're no gory parts. If a character dies, it just breaks into its Lego brick pieces. It is fun , always new chapters to explore, and free play is such a hoot, esp. with 2 players.
Summary: First off, a warning: As many other reviews have mentioned, you should definitely make sure your computer can run this game before you buy it. My computer is probably about as high-end as you can get at this point in time and I had to crank down some of the graphics options to get it to run smoothly. NVIDIA graphics cards work best, which is fine, since they are one of the cheapest and most common graphics cards on the market.
Summary: This game is really great. My 10-year-old and all his friends were enthralled and I had to pry them off. They get all the fun of SW without the violence and darkness of other genre games. The graphics were the best I'd ever seen and much better than you can get from an X-box. Important: the graphics card requirements are STRICT. You must have a card that supports DirectX 9 and Pixel Shader.
Summary: The Star Wars Lego Game was a fairly good buy. It's fun, even if a little unusual. There are missions from all of the three prequel Star Wars movies and a large selection of characters to choose to play. The Pros: Two people can play at a time- awesome. The characters don't die- you just lose points (lego studs). The space battles are really cool cause you dodge blaster cannon bolts and hit enemy fighters. The graphics are pretty neat.
Summary: When I first saw this game I thought it was cute but had no idea that a game meant for children would be so much fun to play! I've been playing PC games in a variety of genres for years and I must say this is one of the most enjoyable. Very easy to learn and easy to play, but there is still enough to do and plenty of bad guys to slice up with your lightsaber to keep things interesting. The 2-player co-op mode is a blast, and is a ton of fun to play along with your kids.
Summary: I'm usually not a big fan of video games, but this one is so much fun. The levels are challenging, but the controls are simple, which is a plus. The lego graphics look great too. I like that you can replay levels to unlock more of their secrets. Each movie (Episodes 1-3) has six levels representing various action scenes from the movies. Most of the action involves slicing with lightsabers or shooting with pistols.
