    Overall, I really enjoyed LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars. Even if you're not a huge fan of the LEGO titles, it's hard to deny that Traveler's Tales has managed to refine the formula of what makes these games work. Toss in the standard co-op mode, which is always a lot of fun, and you've got a great time-waster on your hands here.

    The game's replayability is arguably the greatest in recent gaming history, with so many reasons to keep going back, from the plethora of things to unlock, to the endless things to smash.

    There's plenty of things to like in LEGO Star Wars III, though some of them might be buried a little too deep for younger players.

    The main problem is that even with the replay value in each level, you probably won't really feel like replaying everything again. Unless you're a true completionist, there's not much of a draw to replaying a level that's essentially the same thing as a number of other stages.

    Most importantly, though, the various types of gameplay that the developers have thrown together may not be all that amazing on their own, but the elements work together to create a well-paced, easy-to-understand game that is good fun for anyone.

    The Clone Wars offers an ambitious step up from previous games in the series, but a ton of small issues across the board lead to boredom and frustration.

    This is a more polished and more expansive game than previous LEGO titles. My children have been waiting anxiously for this one, and it does not disappoint. If you love LEGO games, you will love this! Expand

    This game is actually pretty good because you feel more like a jedi and you get to move around objects with the force. But I think they could make this on Windows 8 too, but overall this game is good the missions are actually longer and I like that but I'm just saying this would be the best lego star wars game and the graphics are good.

    This is the best Lego game yet, I think, and certainly the best of the Lego Star Wars games. There's more variety of gameplay than in the previous games and a better sense of continuous action and excitement. Graphically it's a marked step forwards from any of the previous Lego games, especially in its realistic reflections and shadows. Lights (including the lightsabers) glow and reflect realistically off the walls and cast shadows so you can really feel the various textures in the environment.

    There are some neat new gameplay touches too, like characters that can command armies to attack targets for them, and lots of vehicles and creatures that you can take over and drive around. Different characters now have a variety of weapons that you need to solve particular problems (as opposed to the simple lightsaber/blaster contrast in previous games) and there are impressive battle scenes with hundreds of characters and vehicles running around on screen at once. You can use the force to control objects more precisely than before and the building puzzles now require you to figure out where to put the pieces. There are levels where you play two different scenes at once with a "picture in picture" display that allows you to flip between them, and a very smoothly done split-screen two player mode.

    All in all, it's the most polished and satisfying Lego Star Wars game yet and a marked advance in terms of graphics and gameplay. If you've enjoyed previous Lego games you won't be disappointed with this one.

    It's a funny game, even without a dubbing.
    Have a poor gameplay, and do not use a mouse.
    The graphics are simple and not use the full
    potential of a high end PC, so can be best enjoyed by children. Expand

    I am a big Star Wars fan but Lego star wars III offered little to impressive me. This game is clearly made for console and not the PC which is the real reason why i rated this game 4/10. Jedi in the game are a joke and star wars isn't the same without extensive hard fought light saber battles. The game was a little to easy to play and beat. Expand
