Excerpt: When we finished up with Lego Star Wars II, I thought the franchise was done. Not the Lego franchise, the Star Wars Lego franchise. All six movies had been covered, and I did not think it had anywhere else to go. Well I was wrong. LucasArts went into The Clone Wars to produce Lego Star Wars III The Clone Wars. This game is on multiple platforms. I used the Wii version to write this review.
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.
Great fun, but more intense violence than most LEGO games.

Summary: Parents need to know that LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars is a toy-based, movie-licensed action game, but with a better pedigree than that description generally implies. The LEGO video games have a big following because they have been consistently high-quality games, and this one is no exception. However, this one is more violent than previous games .
Excerpt: One of the few good things to come from the prequel trilogy, The Clone Wars is not only a rollicking good time, but also the best Lego game to date.
Pros: Captures the tone of the cartoon series; Lego humor remains funny; Battlegrounds and Arcade mode are a great addition to the franchise; it’s still lots of fun to smash droids and collect studs with a partner.
Summary: Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars encapsulates the far-reaching breadth of war. Space assaults pit plucky fighter crafts against monstrous battle cruisers; on land, a battalion of rocket-wielding clones take on a six-legged tank; and the entire affair is tied together with a sweeping story that includes dozens of characters from across the universe.
Pros: Bold artistic design, Drop in/drop out cooperative play is a hoot
Cons: Few clear objectives and awful visual feedback, Exhausting bouts against respawning enemies, Lots of small control issues, Space combat is way too confining, No online option
Excerpt: Telltale Games are back with another Lego: Star Wars game, but will the game be any good? Is the system tired and exhausted or does this stalwart series have much more to offer. James Ireland gives us the low down on the Xbox 360 version in this video review.
Excerpt: Like both its predecessors, Lego Star Wars III offers plenty of frustration, but is ultimately saved by its smart levels and irresistible charm. Gameplay additions, improved graphics and The Clone Wars' distinctive visual style make up for nuisances still present after seven games in the Lego series...
Summary: LEGO Star Wars III is a very entertaining and enveloping title. The seeming futility of combat is balanced by ingeniously designed battles, action sequences, puzzle and platforming elements. The game is never difficult enough to alienate its mostly young target audience, nor does it ever feel overly simplistic, and as with all LEGO games it's full of humour and personality.
