LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars Review
13 April 2011
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.
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.
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.
Conclusion: While the core gameplay has remained largely unchanged, the concept remains as entertaining as ever. If your inner perfectionist earns for more LEGO action, the sheer amount of content to work through in the game could easily take 30 to 40 hours to knock everything out. My only complaint is that those unfamiliar with the animated series will likely miss some of the humor that Traveller's Tales included in the game; something that has been reduced greatly compared to...
Conclusion: Concept: Add massive battles to the classic LEGO formula
Graphics: With hundreds of characters on screen at once, this is the first LEGO game that feels like it was built exclusively for this generation
Sound: Best elevator music ever. You know what to expect from the sound effects and score
Playability: Vehicles control exceptionally well. Cooperative play works better than in previous iterations.

Excerpt: The Lego games from Traveller’s Tales have always mimicked the spirit of the building blocks themselves, serving as toy boxes full of imagination, colour, and straight-up fun. But too much of anything can dull you to its joy, and as the seventh instalment in the series (and the fourth Star Wars title, counting the Complete Saga release), another return to the world of blocky blasters and plastic protocol droids threatens to do just that.
