LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars Review
27 April 2011
Excerpt: In the interests of full disclosure, here's what I knew about Star Wars: The Clone Wars before playing this game: it's a cartoon; it's set after the film where Christopher Lee fights Yoda, but before that scene where Anakin Skywalker goes bad and murders a room full of children; and there's a female Jedi who looks a bit like somebody out of Thundercats, so if you Google her name with SafeSearch off you get some very nasty results.
Excerpt: Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars is the latest entry in the successful franchise by Traveller’s Tales where cult classics are given the ‘Lego treatment.’ These include Harry Potter, Indiana Jones and Pirates of the Caribbean. The games include humorous, voiceless skits in-between gameplay scenarios which tie in with the plots of the intellectual properties on which they are based.
Summary: " LEGO Star Wars 3: The Clone Wars " is a real return to form for TT. After the really lacklustre Harry Potter game, Lego is back, with improved graphics, new gameplay ideas, and more fun than most of the previous titles put together.
Conclusion: While the Star Wars heart strings aren’t pulled at with the same tenderness as the LEGO Star Wars Complete Saga, there is still plenty of genuine fun and exciting core Star Wars goodness that this is a game any true fan shouldn’t miss.
PS3/X360/PC Review - 'LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars'
10 April 2011
Summary: LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars will include all the characters from the animated TV series, as well as some fan-favorite characters from the theatrical Star Wars Saga. The game will feature brand new battle modes, giving players head-to-head combat and an upgraded level builder, allowing the creation of customized bases and in-game battlefields.
Summary: When Traveler's Tales and LucasArts released the first LEGO Star Wars game, it was a beautiful marriage. Like chocolate and peanut butter, or Charlie Sheen and tiger blood, they were two great tastes that tasted great together. Since then, TT Games have built a franchise on taking pop-culture icons and condensing them into episodic gameplay nuggets involving those Danish building blocks and the endearing humor the series have become known for.
Excerpt: Having never watched an episode of The Clone Wars cartoon, I was bit apprehensive to tackle a game that was based on something that I wasn’t familiar with. ...
Pros: Prior knowledge of the Clone Wars cartoon is not needed. Polished graphics and improved camera controls over previous Star Wars LEGO games. As always, humorous and very engaging.
Cons: Could lose interest after several hours of play. More instructions or tutorials would be helpful. Half the game will be familiar to LEGO video game devotees and then the rest of the game is more about flight missions.
Summary: Traveller’s Tales has settled into a groove with its LEGO games, but it’s far from a rut. The latest installment to the series is my favorite one yet, even though I couldn’t care less about the Clone Wars. The game still is built off the basic structure that was outlined in the first LEGO Star Wars, though it’s been significantly expanded and refined. Levels are not only huge, but they’re a joy to explore with a friend, thanks in large part to the dynamic split screen.
