    The console version is the more impressive product, but Traveller's Tales handheld team pulled off a vastly improved version of the design for the Nintendo DS.
  2. A very impressive recreation of the proper console's Complete Saga.
  3. A brilliant game for Star Wars fans and DS fans alike, The Complete Saga combines childlike simplicity with fiendishly hidden depth, providing an involving experience you'll find difficult to beat.

    Although some crucial elements come up short (cut-scenes, buggy A.I.), Complete Saga still emerges as a great value in the big picture. The lengthy single-player game, extras, and minigames provide plenty to do, and generally atone for the bothersome flaws.
  5. LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga is a must buy for all DS-owning Star Wars fans out there. It contains the complete levels of both previous games, and even tweaks the gameplay issues that plagued the earlier handheld ports.
  6. Built from the ground up by a new developer, the DS has finally got a Lego Star Wars game to be proud of. Whether you're a Star Wars fanatic or DS owner looking for a polished, fun time, you could do a lot worse.

    Lego Star Wars: The Compete Saga is an exceptional home port for the series, and a fine return to form for the Nintendo DS.
  8. LucasArts and Travellers’ Tales have been a great job of making the Lego Star Wars experience portable and a genuine blast to play.
  9. The DS stylus is used to great effect to control the force. Top value! [Issue#19, p.89]

    Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga is better on a non-handheld console, although still a great game on the Nintendo DS. Bad graphics, no replayability whatsoever, and inferior to the PC, PlayStation 3, Wii, and Xbox 360 versions are minor inconveniences compared to its awesome game play and very close relationship to the movies. Very fun after you have played the game on one of the consoles mentioned above, and you haven't already completed it for the Nintendo DS. Full Review »

    The DS port for this game is horrific. It removes many of the good aspects and some of the good features from the game and combines it with unappealing combat, barf-inducing cutscenes, and is really easy. I had more fun playing a minigame than playing through the saga. Bugs are rare, but can ruin gameplay, such as during the Kamino level in Ep.2 when you meet Jango Fett and he gets mad for no reason and the game freezes this annoying "din, din, din" and his mad face, having to restart the game. This port is bad and you should not buy it. Full Review »
