  • Summary: LEGO Star Wars combines two childhood favourites, LEGO and Star Wars, to create an innovative and exciting action-adventure title designed for young gamers. The game is based on "The Phantom Menace," "Attack of the Clones" and the eagerly awaited "Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith." Blending the unique world of designs of LEGO toys with the unforgettable characters of the prequel eras of the Star Wars universe, LEGO Star Wars will offer dynamic vehicles, environments and characters to young players, who will be able to live all of the adventures of the most memorable and exciting scenes from the Star Wars films.

  1. It may not be the most technically accomplished game to have graced our screens, but the plain and simple fact is that it’s so much fun to play, it’s almost indescribable.
  2. It is not only a game that you won’t hesitate to allow your children to play, it is a game that will have you sitting next to them with both of you playing. I can hardly wait for the Lego Star Wars sequel.

    It's hard to describe just how much better LEGO Star Wars is than it should be. All the pieces just fit together perfectly. It's cute yet cunning, easy but addictive, and simultaneously light-hearted and intense.
  4. That co-op feature makes this among the best kids games out there, because parents and kids can directly play together.
  5. Don't change the style - we may already have mentioned once or twice that the style's perfect. Just make more of it. Make it harder, more of a challenge, more of a game.
  6. There's a goofy pleasure in seeing animated Lego figures pantomime scenes from the movies, and the game's puzzles and battles are undemanding but fun.
  7. The core gameplay is somewhat lacking. ‘But it’s for kids,’ we hear you cry. Maybe so, but even kids - or those who are just young at heart - will no doubt want a challenge that lasts longer than it would take to watch the original trilogy. [May 2005, p.109]

    Believe it or not, the same system that every Lego Game uses was once original, fun, and explorative. This is the game where it once occurred. The game does suffer from some frustrations that do not result from a challenging level design, but from a lack of good level design, which makes the game slightly challenging on the first run. Once you understand how to get past the glitches and the bugs (especially in the PC version), this game is a classic. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Poénos játék, de sajnos nagyon könnyű. A grafika hozza az elvárható szintet, a hangok tökéletesek. Egyedül az irányítással van baj: billentyűzettel kínszenvedés játszani. Ennek ellenére mindenkinek ajánlom, egy próbát megér! :) Expand

    Lots of fun to be had here. Game must be doing something right if I unlock all minikits, Jedi's ect. One of the best LEGO games out there. Perhaps graphically dated and a little too easy. You can for example buy invincibility...yeah. I don't regret playing or buying this game and if you are a Star Wars fan you probably wont either. Expand
