What an incredible disappointment packed into that li'l cart...

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.

I am a huge lover and fan of the first Lego Star Wars. This one sucks. Ds and the developer botched this big time. Sure there are some fun moments but the hassle overshadows it on the DS. I am already thinking of trading it in for the console version. Oh, and the Prima Guide book has NOTHING similar with the DS version. In the rush to have it come out on several different consoles at the same time they must have taken the lowest bid for the DS. SHAME ON ALL WHO LET THIS BUGGY GAME THROUGH. The camera effects are terrible and you often will end up dead-ended in free play mode only to try the whole thing again. I cannot believe how disappointed I am. With some awesome DS games out there why would they let such a great and promising game hit the market like this. DO NOT BUY IT. Borrow it to see how much it sucks first.

Don't be fooled into buying the DS version. The game totally sucks on the DS. AMAZE Entertainment, the holes behind Shrek SuperSlam, was given the DS version for no particular reason. Every other console got Traveler's Tales, but what does the DS get? Amaze Entertainment.

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.

I purchased this game since the previosu version of Lego Star Wars was awesome, it was well put together, fun story line and lots of perks.

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.

Avoid this DS game at all cost! I love LEGO and Star Wars, especially Star Wars LEGO and the games. The DS version is not the way to go. It has too many glitches and is a frustrating bore to play.

Such a promising game, such crushing disappointment when you find out how many bugs it has. The sly sense of humor in the manual and the cutscenes shows that some thought went into creating this game. The DS version is so different from all the others, with all-new levels and an exclusive 4-player battle mode, that it apparently wasn't finished when the order came to rush it out the door -- probably so it could be on store shelves along with the other versions and with the new release of the original trilogy on DVD.

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.
