I ran out the day this was released and snapped it up, and two days later, ran faster to trade it in for the PS2 version.
I won't go into the bugs, they're rife and well-documented. What bothers me even more was the horrible hack-job they did to the levels and storyline. Yeah, of course I recognize that you can't fit all the chrome onto a DS port that you can afford to pack on a disc, but the choices that were made are unfathomable.
They cut out Dagobah, for cryin' out loud. Dagobah! The coolest part of the coolest movie of the Trilogy! I know that sacrifices needed to be made, but taking out Dagobah removed Yoda from the Empire Strikes Back chapter altogether, and for such a major character, that's just not okay.
When I was playing the game, I knew it was a dog, but it wasn't until I went and got the PS2 version that I realized just how terrible the DS version is. The full game is a joy, capturing not only the spirit of the movies but the feeling of playing with all of my Star Wars toys as a kid. The levels are massive and varied, the cut scenes are frequently hilarious, and the action is frenzied fun of the first order. The DS version is none of these.
The one area I can praise in the DS over the PS2 is using the touch pad to manipulate the character creator. The layout and ease of use are an improvement over the console version. But this is a mighty small piece of a mighty big game, and in no way ameliorates the central fact of this game's poorness in design and execution.
There's one other good change made to the DS cart, but it wasn't intentional.Read more ›
Graphical AND gameplay bugs that should NEVER have gotten past QA, wimpy controls, and many, many more bad items.
Why would you buy this version? If you have a kid who doesn't know any different, this might be a present that might make them resent you for life.
BTW, this is NOT a hint.
Lego Star Wars II for Nintendo DS is the complete opposite of this. I was incredibly dissapointed with the graphics, poor quality, awful camera angles, unccountable glitches and an overall bad experience.
I cant believe that they actually release a game to the market with this level of problems and glitches. BIG QUALITY CONTROL ISSUES!!!! It is a ripoff, the game is not worth the money. I am actually discouraged to buy the PC version now as a result of my tasteless DS experience.
Bad way to kill a good name.
There are a few problems with playing the game in Story Mode, but they don't get in the way much -- sometimes your character, blaster shots, or LEGO studs will disappear, but they'll still be there, and they'll reappear soon. And sometimes the camera won't follow you into an area, so you can't see around corners or you're operating at extreme distance.
Whenever you finish a level in Story Mode it becomes available for Free Play, so you can play with any character (or vehicle, for the vehicle levels) you've unlocked so far. This can be very fun, and in fact is the key to unlocking even more characters, as there are jumps that can't be made and doors that can't be unlocked unless you have the right character present. However, even more bugs appear in Free Play. All textures can disappear, leaving all characters and any nearby LEGO studs apparently floating in empty black space. The camera can "die," by which I mean that it follows your character at a fixed distance and angle, and you can only rotate it using the L and R buttons -- when this happens, game events cease to occur, like freeing Han Solo in Jabba's palace, which normally leads to fighting the Rancor, but in Free Play this simply will not happen, making the level impossible to complete.Read more ›

I got this for my daughter, age 6 who loves the Wii Star Wars games. She had her big brother help her with the goal of the game, but she really enjoys it.Published on December 30, 2013 by M&J
This game is really hard to like. One of the mega issues with the gameplay is that it is very glitchy and you basiclly can get easily lost. Read morePublished on August 17, 2013 by LoneWolf18
