Summary: This is only the second Lego Star Wars game I've ever played/owned (besides the first one). It's not that I dislike this game, it has a lot of cool features and collectibles, it's just that I think I've "outgrown" the game play so to speak. Had I been five to ten years younger, I'm sure that I would have enjoyed this game much more.
Fun at times...but be prepared to pull your hair out.

Summary: The game is fun...sometimes. At times it's obvious what you should be doing, and then there are times where you'll go crazy trying to figure out what to do. Gameplay isn't bad, graphics are good, but sometimes the task you should be accomplishing is not clear at all. As an example...you fight General Grievous multiple times, but each time you have to beat him differently.
Summary: The other negative reviews are correct. I didn't want to believe them, but this game is not up to the same quality as the previous episodes. The magic of the franchise is not really here, and you can tell from the very beginning. That easy fun and humor that makes the other games so great is just not here. Instead you get difficult, confusing objectives and trite, boring cutscenes. Pretty much every aspect is a little less polished than the rest of the series.
Summary: I have played all of the Lego PS3 games except for Harry Potter, and I have to say this one was one of my least favorite. For one, the ground battles are just plain confusing. They tell you to get to "level 8" but they never tell you how - and to do the side missions... is just plain repetition. In fact, even some of the levels have the same exact puzzles. This game really seemed "phoned in.
Summary: I'll try not to go too in depth here. Perhaps I'm just LEGO'd out, but I could not become immersed in this experience. The split-screen induces dizziness, the objectives aren't always clear, and the massive battles that make up half of this experience are not what I look for in a LEGO's game (even if it is Star Wars). What I did like about this one was that it looked and sounded surprisingly good.
Summary: Lego Star Wars III The Clone Wars is a really cool game. The Lego series of games have made a lot of advancements from the original series of games. The graphics are great and the characters can do so many things. I started the playing the first game with my son when he was four. He's now nine. We played the first two games that made up the complete saga several times and on several systems. Unfortunately, we quickly lost interest in this game. Why?
Summary: My children are 4 and 6 and LOVE playing the previous Star Wars lego game (the complete series one). However they often argue about which direction to go. I loved the idea that this new game would do split screen and thought, HA! no more arguing! For the most part that's true, other than they now argue over who gets to be the jedi character (but once they unlock everything for freeplay, I assume then they can both be the same jedi as in the previous game).
Summary: I've not played Lego games before, and you must know what buttons to push on the controller to function. There is not even a guide that comes with the game that tells you how the controller is laid out. It's fine not to send a walkthrough along...no one is asking for anything like that, but unless you have played another Lego game, you will be lost for quite some time.
Summary: found this one a little boring if i am honest - compared to other Lego games (think i have had them all on the ps3) - and if like me you like to get the easy Platinum trophy by completing all the achievements - then you are in for a VERY long ride....i think the game was completed 100% at around 34 hours playtime with all achievements finally unlocked at around 38 hours.
