    Don't expect complex gameplay or much in the way of new gameplay features, but the formula works brilliantly and provides plenty of fun, whether you're revisiting the games or discovering them for the first time.
  2. Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga achieves everything it sets out to do. Here, we have a fun, well-constructed title that gamers of all ages will enjoy.
  3. Complete Saga will charm the socks off Star Wars fanatics and platforming fanboys alike.
  4. Being able to build your own Star Wars creations from other character parts is a hoot. Bottom line, Saga is excellent closure to the Lego Star Wars series.
  5. Simple, easy-to-use controls are marred only by the game’s sometimes atrocious handling of the camera.
  6. With a solid action core, innovative puzzles, teamwork concepts, and the clever integration of the endearing LEGO franchise, this would be a great game even without the Star Wars license.

    A fantastic game that deserves to be played by everyone. It is easily accessible, truly addictive, and loaded with tons of content to warrant the $50 price tag. However, if you have already played through the first two games there is little here worth coming back for unless online co-op and more Achievement points are your thing.
  8. Overall a well put together homage to Starwars told through the medium of Lego. Ranging from funny to frustrating it will keep you coming back for more.
  9. The experience is a good length, without even engaging the replays, and its feel-good manner and attention to its source material is unmatched for a licensed game.

    So aside from the camera controls, not-so-snappy studs and some problems with pacing in a handful of places, Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga is a solid game, and one of the rare titles on Xbox 360 and PS3 that the family can safely sit down together to play.
  11. These titles are true classics from the last generation. They have been skillfully upgraded by the folks at TT Games to give us the definitive edition.

    LSW has a certain charm about it that one cannot help but recognise, great for family and friends alike.
  13. If you don't already have the previous games, then this is essential.
  14. A kiddy game at heart, that's now packing more bang for your buck.
  15. Good sense of humor combined with valuable package and fun family time.
  16. Even if the new bells and whistles aren't enough to bring back established fans, this is still Lego Star Wars at its finest.
  17. Despite all of these cool minor additions, the core gameplay feels mostly like one big retread. With all of the great new games coming out this holiday, it’s hard to justify replaying this series. For diehard fans, however, this is the definitive LEGO Star Wars game.
  18. 75
    While the flying levels are frustrating and the change-characters-to-hit-this-switch mechanic gets old, the great humor and extras make Lego Star Wars worth playing if you haven't tried it yet.
  19. 75
    If you don’t have Lego Star Wars or Lego Star Wars II and you’re in the market for a cute, family-friendly affair that can be enjoyed by young and old, then Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga is worth every penny. However, if you already own either game, you’re not going to find much here to justify the price.
  20. Between all the unlockable and hidden items in the game, replay is almost required. Despite some issues with the camera and odd occasional lag over Live, you will do so happily.
  21. 90
    Perhaps the best compliment that one can pay to LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga is that it feels like you're playing with a living LEGO playset.
  22. 360 Gamer Magazine UK
    Additional features, from on and offline co-op to the new playable characters and revamped classic levels give it a wide appeal, meaning every type of gamer should at least give it a go.
  23. X-ONE Magazine UK
    Best played in short bursts but it's still unbelievably repetitive and, at times, monotonous. But it can also be fun and you get two games in one. [Issue 26, p.90]
  24. Official Xbox Magazine
    If you're new to the series, this collection is a terrific way to get into it all in one huge, time-sucking package. [oliday 2007, p.82]

    "if you are into Star Wars (I'm not)."

    Then why are you reviewing a Star Wars game? Next review for him will be of a French restaurant

    Pure entertainment... with the right mindset (and perhaps the right friend) this is as much fun as you can possibly have playing a game.

    This game doesn't hold up. I'm a massive Star Wars fan and I enjoy just about every Lego game. While this was a great start for the franchise,This game doesn't hold up. I'm a massive Star Wars fan and I enjoy just about every Lego game. While this was a great start for the franchise, it's pretty simple and kind of boring compared to later entries. Play Lego The Force Awakens or Lego Lord of the Rings or Lego Marvel Super Heroes instead! Full Review »
