My son is 6 years old. When I was 6, I had Pong.
If you have not played any of the previous Star Wars Lego games and enjoy action platformer types games this is a must buy. The action is light, fun, and addictive. There are some minor annoyances, the odd camera issue and some of the platforming aspects - controls could be a hair tighter - but these are generally minor annoyances.
To top it off, the game delivers goofball humor that is funny without being overly cheesy. Combine the easy to approach action with secrets and collectibles not obtained on a first play through and you have a game that actually appeals to all ages with tons of replay value.
Finally, the Star Wars license has been put to good use. Easily the best Star Wars game on any Playstation platform.
The levels progress rapidly, but are plentiful. After completing you can go back in "free play" mode and play the levels as any unlocked character, which you must in order to get all the goodies. I was a bit worried that after completing a level I would not want to go back, but that's not the case at all. It's enough fun that you really want to achieve the goals. The sound effects are well done, and often time hilarious. The game if full of droid sounds, ambience in the Cantina, ships racing thru space, and light sabers. Padme's death cry still cracks me up!
I would highly recommend this game. It's great fun for one or two players, and that's hard to find these days!
To highlight the great points about the game, first off the graphics are superb on full 1080p HD. The colors are bright, the shading is excellent and the overall quality really showcases the PS3's power. The sound is also really well done, with an excellent soundtrack to compliment your adventures.
The replay value of this game is high, since there are a fair amount of areas in each level that can only be unlocked using certain characters, many of whom you do not unlock until later episodes. There are also places that cannot be reached unless you use a particular character (such as Jar Jar Binks, who can jump higher than any other character) to pick up the bonus items in each level.
The only exceptions that I have (and only just a few at that) to a full 5-star rating are the lack of humor that has been in previous LEGO Star Wars games. There is various scenes that are somewhat humorous, but I thought there would be more slapstick humor as in the previous games. Also, the studs that you must collect for money seem to disapear very quickly, forcing you to completely stop fighting and pick them all up before they disapear in order to get full Jedi status in each level. This can be annoying, especially if you die and lose a portion of your studs.
The only other gripe I have about the game is the use of the SIXAXIS controller, which on the few levels that it is used, can take a lot of time getting used to and can be very frustrating.
All in all, this is a great game but not quite perfect. I do highly recommend this game if you are a fan of LEGO or Star Wars. One of the best so far for PS3!
The best aspect of this game is that I can play it with my seven year old and have a blast !! The two player co-op feature is a lot of fun and is made even better by the "drop-in, drop-out" ability. If one person gets tired or needs to run to the fridge, they can just drop out and let the PS3 take their character back over and then come back in if and when they so desire. The game is very clean as far as content as well and you have nothing to fear for your younger aspiring gamers.
There is some really cute and funny humor here too. I even found myself laughing when Padme dies in Revenge of the Sith and her eyes turn to X's...hee hee. Sad but true.
The graphics are great and really immerse you in the storyline. The Lego versions of all our favorite characters are true to form and yet give us a cute look at all our heroes. The ships, vehicles, and the rest of the world do justice to both Lego and what we come to expect from Star Wars titles.
There are TONS of unlockables and free play options. Even after you play the game through, there are so many special features and new characters you can access that make free play fun for a long time !! You can even mix and match characters to create "Jar Jar Vader" or "Princess Palpatine" Hee hee. You can even unlock old versions of levels and play them as they were before they were revamped for this game.
If you are looking for serious, hardcore, blood and guts Star Wars action, then wait for the Force Unleashed. If you wanna have some fun in the Star Wars spirit while still having something that you can play with your kids, then this is your game !!Read more ›
