    The action looks fantastic on the Nintendo 3DS handheld, and the system's 3D effect gives each colorful setting a real feeling of depth. [Apr 2011, p.81]
  2. An evolution of the LEGO series, but only a tiny one. If you liked or haven't played the others, you'll enjoy this.

    If you are a Star Wars fan craving for something on the 3DS or a Lego fanatic then Star Wars III: The Clone Wars on the 3DS is a title that you should definitely check out.

    It works well enough, and even though it's far too easy and features ridiculously simplistic gameplay, it still gets the job done. Still, paying $40 for a game that just gets the job done feels a little wrong, and if you are a real LEGO Star Wars fan, you would be better served picking up the console version.

    A glut of unlockables makes LEGO Star Wars III's smash-and-grab emphasis a somewhat addictive grind. Even so, it lacks the nostalgia factor of its predecessors, and with all of the challenge completely stripped out to cater to a younger slant, it's tough to recommend this one for anyone but the most devout of Star Wars enthusiasts.

    In a word: disappointing. What we have here is a fun game that, with a bit of polish and a few extra features could have been something truly special.

    If you like Lego games and you have a 3DS then this is a great choice. The graphics are adorable and the 3D is nice. While this isnt the greatest game I have played on the 3DS it is still a wonderful game good for younger kids and for older people who like star wars of legos. Expand

    A decent and entertaining game. Its been vastly stripped down from the superior wii game however, so it ends up feeling a bit lacking. I enjoyed the 3-d effect, even though it barely added to the game. I think this game did not reach its full potential, but if you are a Star Wars fan, you will enjoy it regardless. Expand

    Definitely an entertaining game however the 3D really isn't necessary. If you have the console version there's no reason for the portable version. If you don't this will be a neat little distraction for a few hours until you find something more challenging. Expand

    This is a surprisingly good game, as it is based on the bad TV show. However, it is fun at first. The level design is good apart from one major flaw... the levels are too long! Expand

    Cutesy game for your kids, but adult gamers needn't apply. With virtually no challenge, just linear hand holding hand held gameplay, this will not keep you occupied for long. The graphics are indeed sharp, lightsaber sound effects are cool as ever, and using a light saber may have been enough to keep me playing... but character balance is brutal... if you have to switch to anything but a Jedi the game goes from lackluster to bad. This isn't really enough good enough to kill time between releases. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This game was not great. I sold it only a few weeks after I bought it. It was alright when I bought it but I soon realized my version of the game had been broken. The Story was in the wrong order and made no sense and the streetpass function was broken. That was just my copy of the game though so it probably wouldn't have happened to a lot of people. Something that did however affect all the games was the gameplay. The puzzles were way too easy and repetitive. The story elements were alright but I thought the lego people would talk or at least talk through subtitles and not stay silent and make weird noises. It disappointed me. Expand
