Great Wii Co-Op Game! My 4 year old and 7 year old love it!,
This review is from: Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga - Nintendo Wii (Video Game)
What I like about this game is its co-operative play mode. Many multi-player games on the consoles are battle-style games. In this one, you can work together to solve puzzles rather than against each other. But, that is a good thing and bad thing at the same time. Because even in the standard co-operative play mode, each player can attack the other player. This is my 4-year old's favorite "feature". So while I'm running around trying to solve puzzles and eliminate the bad guys, she's swinging her light-saber at me. I gotta watch my back when she's in the game with me! And its cartoon violence, nobody dies, your Star Wars character just falls into a pile of lego pieces. There are also fun features like hundreds of upgrades and 160 characters to choose from. One we stumbled on early in the game in the Cantina is a "hat" machine which lets you change what hat you are wearing for free. My kids visit that thing constantly. So you can take Obi Wan and put a Princess wig on her, or a baseball cap. I'd give the game 5 stars except we've had 2 situations where we've had the our characters "spawn" in separate parts of the scene, and due to bad camera control, we're unable to re-join. To get around this problem, we've had to make one of our characters leave the game, and then rejoin to correct the issue. I'm also disappointed that there are very few in-game voices (the Lego Characters don't speak their lines). Also - just to dispute an earlier comment posted on Amazon, the Wii remote DOES work as a light-saber!
