  1. Even better than the first game, this handheld masterpiece is an essential purchase.
  2. A supremely entertaining romp through the classic Star Wars universe, LSWII deserves to be played by everyone. [Nov 2006, p.102]
  3. Beautifully knitting together the Star Wars and Lego worlds in presentation and ambience, this is a game that showcases the PSP's extraordinary capabilities.

    Its kiddy facade hides some terrifically fun gameplay with a lot of meat on its bones.
  5. An excellent gaming experience. Sure the load times are bad, and that is reflected in a lower score for this than I gave the PC version - but this is still an excellent game that owners of the PSP should definitely try.
  6. With solidly rebuilt controls only a little marred by a still-fussy camera, LEGO Star Wars II is even better than last years prequel trilogy-based offering. And, as the first LEGO Star Wars was an amazingly entertaining homage to Lucas's genius, this sequel stands atop the original's shoulders as the pinnacle of LEGO Star Wars fun.
  7. The game's simplicity is what really makes the game work: it's a game where you don't have to futz around with complicated controls, and camera control isn't an issue. [Nov 2006, p.78]
  8. 80
    But most importantly, it's about the good episodes now. For that reason alone, Lego Star Wars II is one of the most enjoyable games of this fall.
  9. 80
    A fantastic sequel. If it had online play and cleared up its long loading issues, it'd be a sure-fire five-star winner. As is, though, it'll have to do just being a great sequel and fun for all ages.
  10. The gameplay hasn't changed dramatically, but better source material makes Lego Star Wars II a better game than its predecessor.
  11. What's pretty refreshing is that Lego Star Wars II makes a damn nice jump from the hefty console down to the wee portable. [Nov. 2006, p. 122]

    The second and final installment in the LEGO Star Wars series is a keeper, and there are new tweaks to the gameplay so this game would not just be the same game with better source material. The source material helps though, escalating this game to the very top of the rating scale. Full Review »

    Super lego fun times three thousand is great, but it gets repetitive. But that takes a long time. I think its great though.

    Fun, simple and charming, the Lego idea has manifested to Indiana Jones , Harry potter and Batman. Now I wonder what fresh begining will it take in the next installment. Full Review »
