    It has everything a family-oriented title needs: it has personality, puzzles, cooperative modes, replay value, low violence, a lack of frustrating difficulty, and most importantly, it has Darth Vader.
  2. A game that, while designed with kids in mind, has such a surplus of charm that even nostalgia-minded adults will be able to join in on the fun.

    That's what LEGO Star Wars is all about: a great time. Whether it's the nostalgia or the cuteness that hooks you in, the gameplay makes it worth sticking around.

    A good find for Star Wars fans who don't take the license too seriously. [July 2005, p.72]

    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.
  6. 80
    That co-op feature makes this among the best kids games out there, because parents and kids can directly play together.

    It's too easy, and over too soon, but for $30 it's nearly a comlete childhood on a CD. [Aug 2005, p.70]
  8. 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.
  9. The game is addictive. I just couldn’t put it down until I was done playing.
  10. It's addictive, simple and fun. It's pretty, it sounds excellent and it will run on almost any system that has played a game in the past four years.
  11. 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.
  12. Enormously inventive and irreverant silliness, and made of LEGO! [May 2005, p.94]
  13. 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.
  14. Most interestingly, the game will appeal to both kids and adults, as its simple pick-up-and-play action is accessible to almost anyone of any age.
  15. The perfect rental game: it's short, it's fun, and it's got a great multi-player mode. It is too short and too easy, though, to warrant a purchase.
  16. 80
    The principles of the game are very simple but the game is incredibly enjoyable for all ages.
  17. 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.
  18. 80
    Puncturing the pretentious balloon of Star Wars with amusingly colored bricks is a noble goal. And if nothing else, there’s always the light puzzle that triggers NPC disco dancing to a techno remix of the Star Wars music.
  19. 82
    If you’re a Star Wars fan, even an old school purist like me, you will have a blast playing this game, especially if you have kids to help you out.

    Lego Star Wars is really fun, friendly and colourful little game. It’s not too complicated, but still very entertaining. You have to be a hardened cynic or a Star Wars hater not to like this game. The Force is indeed with the blocks. [June 2005, p.59]
  21. It is hard to play the game and NOT enjoy it. It reaches the kid in all of us.

The formula has become overused now, but when this first came out it was super fresh and very satisfying to play in co-op mode especially. Full Review »
