5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly fun for all ages!, February 22, 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga - Nintendo Wii (Video Game)
I original bought this for my two 6yo boys as the game doesn't require much reading at all. So right off the bat, they could play without any adult hands-on coaching. The Wiimote (and nunchuck) really makes the experience unique to the Wiimote as it controls your lightsaber:-) There are 6 episodes (just like the movies) for 1 or 2 players to explore, with each episode having 6 chapters. The game play is sequential initially. But once you complete a chapter, you can go back using the "free play" mode and explore with any character you've "purchased". By "purchasing", I mean that during gameplay, there's opportunities to gather "studs"....similar to other games' coins. As you collect them, these become your Jedi points. As you gain more, you percentage of being a "True Jedi" increases. If you gather the required amount during a chapter, you'll become a "True Jedi". I think this enables you to unlock certain characters. Even if you don't reach that during a chapter, you can buy characters with those studs you've gathered. My boys have probably put in some 40 hours into this game and they still have well over 2/3 of the game left. They do have a few favorite chapters they like to go back to and tend to explore originally inaccessable areas with different characters that finally allow them to. One thing I forgot to mention is that they totally (me as well) love solving the puzzles...how to get from here to there which might require building things or pressing buttons in a certain order etc. I didn't start playing this right away, but once I saw how the game worked, I got hooked myself. The CGI is very good and the facial expressions of the characters during the trailers had me cracking up. The game is pretty much true to the movies that I highly recommend for children (even those that can't even read) as well as adults.
