Great game, although vertical synch problem is annoying

Summary: Game has been lots of fun for my kids, including some problem solving. A vertical synch issue at the top of the monitor is annoying, but only manifests on one of our two computers. No crashes, like our Lego Lord of the Rings game.
Summary: Thanks to this you don't have to buy Lego Star Wars and Lego Star Wars - The Original Trilogy separately. A very fun Lego game. Looking forward to Lego Star Wars Episode 3 - The Clone Wars. There are several setbacks in the game, however. First of all, your friendly campaign characters are virtually worthless. They cannot kill enemies for you. But, they do serve as a good leisure for taking blaster shots instead of you.
Summary: This is a fun game that I originally purchased for my kids. But as always, dad ends up playing it the most. We purchased the PC version to go along with the new gaming computer our boys received for Christmas. It works well with a fast processor and video card. I highly recommend you use an XBOX style game controller with this. It makes all the difference. Two controllers are necessary for dual game play.
Summary: As an adult who grew up with Star Wars, I really enjoyed (and continue to enjoy) this game! The difficulty level could be a bit higher - as a result the game can be played through pretty quickly - but it's much much harder to find all of the bonus levels, bricks, minikits, etc. Also the free play mode, which allows you to replay a level with any character you want, is really fantastic fun: not only does it allow you to access much more of the levels to find the bonus...
Summary: I bought this for my sister's computer, and it has been quite enjoyable. She has Windows 7 64-bit and there haven't been any compatibility issues yet. The only "complaints" I would have with it is that the case was so flimsy it broke from mild use, and the graphics have a weird stutter problem that doesn't bother my sister, but which I would find quite annoying. The stutter is only with moderate graphics cards such as her ATI HD 2600 Pro.
Summary: This game acts as if it's running on an emulator, it stutters during cut scenes. The game is fun, but it's obvious it's for a console game with a D-pad. Using the keyboard is awful. I've died countless times simply because I can't always make my little lego guys do what I want or go where I want with only four simple directions. I tried to use my old joystick, but it didn't work. Can get very frustrating. There are a lot of unlocks in this game.
