Summary: The product was delivered on time. I have no problems with the delivery. I just dont think the game is suited for kids ages 6 and below. I think it is a little too difficult for them to figure out.
Summary: We bought this game for our son for his 5th birthday after playing the heck out of the Xbox version of LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Series (heretofore abbreviated as SW:TCS). I haven't seen the Clone Wars TV series yet, and neither have my sons, so I don't know all the storylines but we've gotten to know a few of the characters from various places. I thought this would be a fun continuation for he and his brother (almost 4). Right now we are only about 10% into the game.
Summary: I really, really, really wanted to like this game. My 8-year-old daughter and I are huge Star Wars fans and played Lego Star Wars (I and II) on PS2 for hours on end. When we found out that Lego Star Wars III was comging out for Wii, we pre-ordered it and couldn't wait to get started. Unfortunately, our enthusiasm fell off sharply after playing it for a while. There are many reasons for this, but here are some of the primary ones: - Unnecessary complexity.
Summary: My son and I have all of the Lego titles and have already played this one for a several hours. It is very fun and it has many cool additions compared to the Complete Saga, but overall it is not as fun as the original. Sometimes the split screen does not seem to keep up with the characters, espcially in the large battle scenes. It is easy to get "lost" in the mayhem because the camera often keeps a very long views when it would be better to zoom in once the screen splits.
Summary: This is a lot more complex than the previous game and if you stick with it there is lots to explore. However for me I preferred the simplicity of the last one. There is a good mix of playing styles between the different levels and lots of good humour.
Summary: Not the best of the Lego games... nothing on the original trilogy and along with Harry Potter this seems to rely on (or at least benefit from) a little knowledge of the source material (which we are not...).
Summary: In a galaxy far far away, there may be a manual for this game that makes sense and tells you how to play the game. However, if you're reading this, then you're probably in the same galaxy as me so forget about ever understanding this fast paced meaningless blur of a game and buy one of the other Lego games instead.
Summary: The Star Wars Lego games are fantastic. We have them all on the Wii - Star Wars, Batman, Harry Potter, Indiana Jones... we play and replay them all regularly. This one is a good addition to the series but somehow it just doesn't seem as fun. The simple fun of puzzle solving and shooting bad guys in corridors is still there, but there seems to be much more emphasis on huge battles where your character is a tiny speck in a massive warzone.
