    Kids are often underestimated, but that doesn't mean their games should be. Lego Star Wars has an appeal that goes beyond age, even if it's one that rarely goes beyond 20 minutes at a time. [May 2005, p.84]

    Extremely fun to pick up and play with now and then, but ultimately somewhat limited; its final destination gathering dust in a cupboard next to Hungry Hungry Hippos is all but assured.
  3. An annoying camera, repetitive structure and short replay value all add up to a slightly above average game that will only have lasting appeal for younger gamers (or indeed Star Wars fans).
  4. A fun experience that should be loved by many.
  5. Electronic Gaming Monthly

    The game's short length, infinite continues, and co-op mode make it an excellent rental for older folks, while kids will be happy to replay the levels to death and track down every last secret. [May 2005, p.125]
  6. The sheer simplicity of the game is likely to affect the duration of the game, but while it lasts LEGO Star Wars is enjoyable and has an understanding of the Star Wars brand above many others.

    It's a cute toy without enough pieces to build anything truly great. [May 2005, p.84]
  8. It's simple, it's short, but it's still great fun.

    This game is also one of the easiest the galaxy has ever seen. [May 2005, p.52]

I'm still finding easter eggs and minikits. yeah. Full Review »

    When I frist picked up this game I thought that it would fall short for a star wars game...BOy was I wrong this game is a blast to play and When I frist picked up this game I thought that it would fall short for a star wars game...BOy was I wrong this game is a blast to play and although it can be easy to get through it does have quite a bit of replay value if you try to get everything...Id recommend it to anybody young or old.
