Summary: DRM strikes again! This game was originally designed to be used with Micosoft's Games For Windows Live service which was so horribly unsuccessful that they are shutting it down. In fact, the servers providing DRM for this game already appear to be down because I have not been able to connect to them rendering my purchase worthless. THIS is why people pirate- what's the point in buying something if you can't use it in perpetuity? DRM is theft.
Summary: Why did LucasArts make the people so small? When you are trying to jump to some places, the angles are misguided and you jump to death. The concept was great but I've seen better graphics on WII games. Lucas just uses the star wars universe to rip people off!
Summary: Unless you plan on playing this game on a 52" or larger monitor, don't buy it. I had a difficult time viewing any details of the tiny characters and the environment they were interacting with on my 42". Fun game, just very hard to see.
Summary: I also bought this game on impulse. (The cover did look good) I played Lego Star Wars obsessively to 100% completion. Despite the Force Unleashed's flaws, I still enjoyed it as a whole. That said, I can make no excuses for this game. I'm sure it sold plenty of copies to unsuspecting parents this season I'm also sure cheap, used copies should be plentiful soon. I still wouldn't pay $5 for this mess of a game.
Summary: I bought this as a deal of the day just to check it out. Unfortunately, it's a pretty horrible game. As far as the story - nothing terribly new. It's an interesting enough story involving most of your favorite characters from the tv series. Where the game falls FAR short of expectations is the production value. The playability is rough across the board, with difficult to control characters and a LOT of glitches.
Summary: Graphics - Decent at best Sound - Just...plain...awful: The "cutscenes" had an announcer that sounded like it was a baseball game. Gameplay - Impossible and annoying, you run around jumping only to fall continuously due to bad control mechanics. It is way too easy to fall off, and way too easy to misjudge a jump. Granted you don't die, but it is still tedious to wait for the respawn to jump once more over a gap and miss it at some silly proportion.
