  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. The Co-Op mode alone makes this an essential purchase and now with the ability to take vehicles out for a spin and create new characters, Lego Star Wars II is every bit as great as we would have hoped.
  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. This is the most pure fun I have had playing a game since... well, since the original LEGO Star Wars.
  7. I had such a good time blasting away at Stormtroopers and piloting speeder bikes through the forest of Endor that I almost forgot about my own fiery death. [Dec. 2006, p.124]
  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.
  9. While at its core, this is basically the same game as the first LEGO Star Wars, albeit based on a different trilogy, there is more here to do than the original. And more here is certainly better.
  10. LEGO Star Wars II improves in every way on its predecessors, making the core gameplay more engaging, the audio and visual experience more appealing and the jokes funnier.
  11. Gloriously fun and deeply silly, it's the happiest platform game of all. [Oct 2006, p.98]
  12. There's some superb gaming here, no sci-fi indulgence, no grim Star Wars fanboyism, no recourse to statistics or tedious switch. This is an action-puzzle game for all brains great and small. [Oct 2006, p.94]

    My brother and I are playing this game right now and we absolutely love it. It's a lot of fun, lots to do, it's very funny and you My brother and I are playing this game right now and we absolutely love it. It's a lot of fun, lots to do, it's very funny and you know the storyline already, so your favorite Star Wars scenes in Lego are a blast to see! It's also a lot longer than the first game, and the extras are much harder to get, increasing the replay value of the game. We've been playing every night for 3 nights now and we're only on level 5 on Episode 4, not to mention all the free mode extras we have to get. Excellent game and highly worth the money you'll spend on it. Full Review »

It begs for two players, doesn't take itself too seriously, great graphics at good framerates, cute as all hell. Full Review »
