5.0 out of 5 stars Endless fun for my 4-year-olds, and their parents, and *their* parents, March 16, 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga - Nintendo DS (Video Game)
My twin 4-year olds got a DS, with this game, for Christmas. We never intended to get them a video game at all (for several more years, at least), but it was a gift from a beloved aunt, so what can you do? So we let them play it, now and then, and somewhat to my astonishment, they were both able to play it very well within a few hours of starting. What's particularly interesting is that neither of them can read, or even close (recognize letters is about it), or knew anything about Star Wars, but they manage just fine. Since then, they've seen at least three other DS games, but most of them require reading, or are too boring for them. With this one, there are a lot of words, but none of them matter--they just run around in Star Wars land, chopping up things and people with joyful abandon until we tear the games from their still-twitching hands. They can even play together, wirelessly; this does a really good *cooperative* multiplayer game (they're not fighting each other, so they don't get mad at each other, or competitive with each other). Their 10-year-old friend also has it, and loves it too. And I'm only slightly ashamed to admit that my wife and I sneak the games out of their chargers at night, and play it two-person almost every night after the kids are in bed. To top it all off, their grandmother just bought a DS, after watching them play this, so she can join in the fun. Truly, an enjoyable game for *all* ages--three generations in this household!--and the best *cooperative* multiplayer game I've seen since Sega Genesis Toejam & Earl. What a great present!

That's an awesome review and so true. We've found playing the Lego games on ANY platform brings all ages in. Especially Star Wars. it's such a well known and loved series in our house that no matter who is playing on what we all enjoy, across the generations, playing this game. :)

I know it's from '08 but I just had to say great review. So funny that you were slightly ashamed for sneaking and playing your kid's ds. LOL!
