Summary: An excellent shooter-game that's kid-friendly. Challenging at times, without getting frustrating. My only knock would be on (1) the camera angles and (2) the weak instructions booklet (which, like most instruction booklets nowadays, doesn't do a great job explaining every facet of the game).
Summary: This is a fun game with a lot of funny gags - like characters slapping each other and chewbacca ripping arms off of people. If your kids want "violent video games" but you are hesitant to get them, this might be a good comproise. Its a shootem' up game but when they shoot a character, they break into a million lego pieces. The game is very long and some screens can take you almost an hour.

Summary: After the surprisingly fun-for-all-ages gameplay of the first Lego Star Wars game, how could I not go right out and buy the second installment? And it was quite worth it! There's improvements all around, and Lego got most of them right-on. There are more characters, larger levels, a wider variety of skills, tons of hidden extras and powerups, and some ingenious applications of good game theory.
Summary: I truly have enjoyed playing this game, though it will become a bit repeative in battles, the only real challenging aspect is the Character bonuses and the "Story" you witness (from Story Mode) throughout. I love some of the little things the characters do like Princess Leia Slave will dance (on X-Box when you push the B button) and Lando will kiss Leia's hand but I've only done it once and I don't recall how it even happened, but it was cute.
