  1. You could play straight through this game in a few hours, or dally with it for days. Therein lies its brilliance.
  2. A wonderful game that rewards experimentation and co-operation.
  3. Simply fantastic. It re-creates the Star Wars world brilliantly then adds a quirky twist to it. Easy to play and immense fun from the word go. Essential. [Oct 2006, p.86]
  4. It trumps the already brilliant original by being based on the classic trilogy of films and, in terms of gameplay, is the multiplayer co-op game of the decade so far.
  5. It certainly isn't gaming's greatest challenge, but it's absolutely fun. If you've seen the original trilogy, don't resist! Join the LEGOside.
  6. With more meat than the last game, 100 levels of fun, unmatched co-op gameplay, the feature to make your own characters, the superb visuals and the funky Star Wars tunes, I simply cannot fault what's on offer.
  7. It deserves all of the accolades it will receive-the game has managed to capture the spirit of Star Wars while maintaining its own style and sense of humor.
  8. In a nutshell, LEGO Star Wars II is action, adventure, collecting, puzzles, races, mini-game, Co-op mode and your favorite Star Wars characters all having a great time. All you need is a copy of this game to join in on the fun.
  9. It's all cute and Lego-y, yeah, but this is also a thoroughly charming, satisfying and faithful tip of the plastic hat to the original Star Wars trilogy. The Force is strong with this one.

    Its kiddy facade hides some terrifically fun gameplay with a lot of meat on its bones.
  11. Builds (hoho) on the brilliance of its predecessor with improved flying, busier levels - and all the best bits from the only Star Wars trilogy worth bothering with. Pure gaming. [Oct 2006, p.52]

    It offers the same gameplay as the first Lego Star Wars but this one feels like an improvement over it. The game feels longer than the first and there is more to do. Its good by yourself, but greater with friends. Full Review »

    This was the very first LEGO game I played back in the day and as I played it, I absolutely loved it! The fact that they took the original classic Star Wars Trilogy and *ahem* "Lego-ized" it into this game is great. It has good humor during the cutscenes, fun gameplay and some great replay ability with the Free Play and such and overall trying to unlock everything. My only gripe with this game is that combining the main story mode together kind of makes a short adventure; but at least that is made up with the great replay ability. This is a great game and I thank it for getting me interested in other LEGO games. Full Review »
