5.0 out of 5 stars Gaming nirvana, June 26, 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga - Xbox 360 (Video Game)
Four words: the best game ever. This is the game that got me started playing with the xBox. Up to this point, I was a puzzle-game person (Peggle, JewelQuest, Nancy Drew, Agatha Christie and the like) and avoided most action games. Partly because I do get motion sick, and partly because I have the reflexes of a sloth. I've never been able to handle the action first-person shooter style games, but this one is different.

The camera angle, other than in a very few places, is such that I don't get motion sick and the fact that dying doesn't (usually) do anything bad but cost you money (until you're invincible) is great. It's a low-pressure game, and while a few of the situations can be a little frustrating (such as the jumping - at least until you get flying characters!) overall it's just good fun.

And long! This is a game where you get your money's worth, that's for sure. There are six episodes, each with six levels. In each level there are 4 objectives (True Jedi, Red Brick, Mini-kits, Blue Cannister Challenge), which require several play-throughs in different modes. There are also some bonus levels (Lego Town, New Lego Town, etc) and extra challenges (Jaba the Hutt's 'find the character' levels).

And last, but not least, you get the achievements - from the simple 'completed the level' to the fun 'let the wookie win' to the difficult 'complete a level without dying (and not being invincible)'.

The only thing I was disappointed in was what was built after all the gold bricks were acquired. It was a bit of a letdown, but barely puts a dent in the greatness of the game. This is the game that all future games will be measured against in my book. Cute, creative, fun, and simply amazing. Go play it today! Even if you're not an 'action game' sort of person. Really, you won't regret it.

Smeddley,
I adored the first two (particularly the Lego Star Wars Original Trilogy). So I am totally excited about the Complete Series--particularly after reading your review. Now, I just need to get a gaming system (I use PC mostly)!

We have all three for the PC, I believe, and there are differences. My husband's played them on the PC (the screen is too close and it does make me a little queasy at times) and he pointed out some of the ways they were different, but I don't remember all of them. So the two separate games are slightly different from the Complete Series, and the Complete Series for the game systems is slightly different from the PC version, I think.

...and to top it off I just got it for the DS Lite, so we'll have a bunch of versions!

(totally go with the xBox 360 for a gaming system if you're a serious gamer - one, it has much better graphics and two, well, it's actually available in stores!)

33% of all xbox 360's suffer hardware failures so "totally go with the xBox 360 for a gaming system if you're a serious gamer" is a stretch by any means. The PS3 is a lot more reliable and has a BlueRay player included + better graphics + online is nicer. And most importantly the PS3 is NOT made by Microsoft, who we all know make some really crappy stuff including everything windows.

See the link for the 360 failure! http://www.ripten.com/2007/07/03/failure-rate-xbox-360-high-as-33-sony-ps3-less-than-1/
