  1. Those looking for a fun and easy game for themselves or their children to enjoy however, have an undeniable winner on their hands.

    The pairing of the two licenses works surprisingly well, offering gamers a decidedly different take on the past and upcoming Lucas films.
  3. The gameplay will delight and challenge anyone who gives it a try. [June 2005, p.98]
  4. A darn good game that covers the events in the first three Star Wars prequels - as they might have taken place in a Lego universe.
  5. More action packed than the GBA version of "Terminator 3," it's faster paced than "Baldur's Gate," and offers the same level of variety as "Boktai."
  6. Even if its plot isn't original, its concept most definitely is. It's got a few major gameplay problems (namely boredom), but there's not too many flaws in its presentation.
  7. The really ingenious thing about it, though, is the majority of the characters, vehicles, and scenery contained therein have been drawn to resemble the Lego play sets that have been released to coincide with the films.
  8. 80
    A surprising good time, designed elegantly in every category and feeling like a refreshing change of pace from the other failures in the Star Wars release line. The force is strong with this one, even if it's made of Lego blocks.
  9. 50
    Underneath all of the character imbalance, graphical bugs, odd level distribution, and unrealized LEGO potential is a decent, if sadly uneventful game.

    This is a great game. Tons of action and variety, i played this game many times over. It is the best Star Wars game for the gba. Huge replay value with all the characters and very addictive. I only wish it couldve been slightly harder, and maybe longer, but thats not a good reason to not give it a 10! Full Review »

    My 4 year old son and I have played the PS2 version since day one and loved every minute of it. We've COMPLETED the game several times and still play it almost daily. But I can't say the same for the GBA version... it's actually way too hard in comparison to the PS2 version. It's so frustrating to complete the first level that it sat on the shelve for months before we tried it again. Appears to have potential... but... we're still only about a 3rd into the game... and we've been trying for months. Full Review »
