    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.

    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! Full Review »

    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.

    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.
