  1. A wonderful game that rewards experimentation and co-operation.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Almost endless replayability. [Oct 2006, p.60]
  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. Overall the game is fantastic. Too often fun is left out of titles, and Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy does a brilliant job of bringing it back.
  7. I don’t claim to be a Star Wars buff – far, far from it, in fact – but Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy makes me want to check out the storyline a little more, provides a heck of a lot of entertainment for the asking price and a few bugs aside, has been put together incredibly well indeed. Very, very good.
  8. With more meat than the last game, 100 levels of fun, unmatched co-op gameplay, the feature to make your own characters, the superb visuals and the funky Star Wars tunes, I simply cannot fault what's on offer.
  9. Combine the first game's addictive gameplay with Lucas' classic trilogy, and you've got a supremely entertaining slice of sci-fi escapism. [Oct 2006, p.101]
  10. 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.
  11. Drop-in multiplayer, replay in spades, and optional objectives give players a reason to continue playing and get their money's worth out of this title. If you like fun, this is a great addition your gaming library, regardless of age or skill level.

    Its kiddy facade hides some terrifically fun gameplay with a lot of meat on its bones.
  13. 90
    No matter what your age, LEGO Star Wars II will keep your inner child happy. [Oct. 2006, p.84]
  14. Lego Star Wars represents the combination of two of mankind’s coolest creations. Throw the original trilogy into the mix and what’s not to love?
  15. Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy is a winner, and deserves a second Alliance Medal of Honor. May the Force be with you -- always.

    I agree with Unholy M. -- it's not the hardest or most challenging game in the world, but it makes me grin while I'm playing. I agree with Unholy M. -- it's not the hardest or most challenging game in the world, but it makes me grin while I'm playing. It's just fun -- fun that deserves serious replay time. And the fact that I can play co-op mode with a 6-year old and still have fun makes it even better. Full Review »
