Conclusion: At forty bones, LEGO Star Wars is a must buy if there are any sub-15 year olds lurking about your house. The faithfulness to the SW Universe (as perceived in the movies) might be better than any game out there, kid title or not.
Excerpt: When you were a child, a parent or teacher probably told you "Stop that. It's not big and it's not clever." The latter half of this phrase sums up Lego Star Wars more concisely than any other erudite turn of phrase I could dare hope to come up with.
Excerpt: Star Wars was the film that created spin-off toys and merchandise. The re-release of the digitally remastered original trilogy followed by the making of the new trilogy of prequels, has resulted in the release of countless related products in recent years.
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: OK, it may well be a game targeted more at the younger gamer, but that doesn't stop it being almost pure fun from start to end. Any competent gamer is going to see all this game has to offer faster than foreign tap water goes through you, but every last moment will be savoured.
Conclusion: Lego Star Wars is, hands down, a very good game. It doesn’t have the depth as I would have hoped, but the experience is just one that you will always remember as being fun. If you’re a Star Wars fan and don’t mind being a kid again, then Lego Star Wars would be a great purchase for you.
Excerpt: LEGO Star Wars is designed by Traveller’s Tales, a developer whose previous games have mostly been geared towards children; with average titles such Finding Nemo and Toy Story Racer. With such recent titles under their belts hopes were not high for Lego Star Wars.
Excerpt: Lego und Star Wars kennt jeder, die beiden zusammen aber kombiniert das klingt doch etwas komisch. Aber genau das hat Travelers Tales hier gemacht und Kritiker sagen das solch Kombinationen meist nicht sehr viel versprechend ausfallen.
