Diam--shiny rock in the rough,
This review is from: LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars (Video Game)
LSW 3 is a pretty good game and you get your moneys worth with it, assuming you paid 20$ or less. Before i get hateful comments, i thoroughly enjoyed this title and have put in 21 hours into getting 100% on it.Lets just get the regular questions out the way, it looks great the character models are smooth and framerate is persistent, it sounds good you get your standard pew pew and music.Unfortunately the content(or lack there of) and glitches hold it back from being something more. The game has some buggy issues, one being it freezes (happened about 6 times to me), rendering all your progress void because you have to reboot your 3ds i cant tell you how annoying this is because missions are rather long and you cant save in between acts, there are also times where certain things would not be present such as a minikit not in the location it should be or a door not opening to allow to progress(this is even less common). Their rare and of course not deal breakers but problems to be aware of. If you haven't played a lego game like myself your going to play through this and have a great time seeing how creative the levels are and unlocking items and characters,if you have played the console version your going to realize you have a gimped port, its literally the same title as the DS/PSP and 10 dollars more and with 3D which at times you cant even tell its on (space battles really show it off though) its missing a huge chunk of missions and the ones you get could have been so much bigger but im assuming it was rushed for the launch of the 3DS it surely is strong enough to run the levels, still unforgivable at 40$ price tag.
speaking of which why is there no multiplayer?! Even the DS version had local multiplayer, big let down there would of loved to play this with my wife. Its a solid game, it has some extra mini games to unlock like volleyball and snowball fight, i have no idea what "40 bonus missions" amazon is talking about. In closing its a decent game kids might not notice or worry about the above statements but to a more mature audience who expects more for their moneys worth they may feel upset at full price, had it not been for the lack of software on the 3DS it would be another mediocre adventure title but this actually helps it in this case because you dont have much to choose from,overall i realize i bashed it alot in this review but that doesn't mean i didnt have alot of fun with it If i had more space i could talk about the positives alot more, its just when i pay 10 dollars less than what the console version would cost me I expect alot more than this. I reccomend it if anything renting it, you'll get a easy 8 hours at the least and it is a nice addition to a 3DS collection.
PS: To anyone needing Help with the Campaign or Item locations here is a good guide

Thanks for the review. My 5 year old son LOVES Batman 2 but needs me to help him along. So I only buy co-op titles (and Lego makes you buy 2 copies!) so your review saved me from purchasing this one. Lego is throwing away money by not doing drop-in/out co-op play on their titles. They clearly have the programming in place to do it, so you have to wonder why they leave it out when it is such an easy tool to get people to buy more copies of,the game.
