Summary: While all of the Lego games are more or less the same to a certain extent, the extra challenge and lack of some of the issues that I have had with other Lego games vaults this up to the top of my list of favorites within the Lego franchise, right next to the Harry Potter series. My wife, especially, has absolutely fallen in love with the Lego series, and it's a great "family/casual" game to spend with your kids or loved one.
Summary: This is the first game to be played on a gaming system by my 5 year old son, and he absolutely loves it. It took a few times playing before he figured out the controls, but now every time I get home from work, he wants to play. It has become a good bonding tool for the two of us. I have played other Lego PS3 games in the past, and this one is just as good.
