But overall Lego Star Wars III doesn't quite meet the standards of its predecessors. I suspect this is partly because the Clone Wars TV show isn't quite over yet. The levels are generally based on episodes from Seasons 1 and 2 of the Clone Wars, but there isn't enough material for some of the episodes for a level. Therefore, the levels tend to be shorter and have less of a story. Also, some of the puzzles are more frustrating than intriguing. Unlike the previous Lego Star Wars games, I've found myself stuck many times simply because the controls or the character's abilities weren't clear.
One thing I don't like is the hub level. In the Lego Star Wars Saga, the hub was the cantina - brilliant in its sparsity. However, for this game the hub sprawls across two entire ships. It takes a long time to navigate and find new characters and bonus options in the hub. It's certainly not a major problem, but something that makes navigating the hub more of a chore than fun.
Overall, given the price, Lego Star Wars III is a fun addition to the saga, but not quite the gaming gold of the originals.
The game play is typical of Lego series but does require some thinking that may be for 6 yo+. I can't imagine anyone under 7/8 yo figuring everything out on their own. All in all, I am very satisfied with the game and the time I was able to spend with my son when we are home inside :)
I sat with him as he played and asked his thoughts on what he does and doesn't like about the game, but all I heard for about 3 hours was "WOW mom look at THIS!!!". He was blown away by this game and said it was more fun than any of the other versions he had ever played. I asked him if there was anything about the game he didn't like, he said not at all.
Something I noticed is the game had interesting new graphics. The colors and design almost looked as though they added a bit more realistic looking texture to things like walls and floors. It's as though they've added just a touch of realistic textures to buildings and structures. The colors are still extremely vivid, but they have now given even more depth to the playing environment.
So far one of his favorite aspects is being able to play as a Lego Clone. Some of the areas he explored had a very 3D-4D Mario Galaxy feel to them as well. Parts of the game seem to jump off the screen.
While he has just begun to explore everything this game has to offer, he is already ecstatic about everything he has seen and has given it his seal as one of the best games hes ever played. :)
-The game is challenging and fun, and while the tone is darker (part of the reason my kids haven't watched the TV series yet) it still has the same goofy spirit as SW:TCS. There are the usual LEGO puzzles to master, and while there are some advances in what you can do from SW:TCS, most of the abilities are at least similar. I've enjoyed playing the levels so far, even though they can be tough to navigate at times (I've had to use an online walkthrough a few times).
-I like that the hub is its own different "world" on board a spaceship, as opposed to the confines of the Mos Eisley Cantina from SW:TCS. I'm looking forward to exploring all the worlds some more once we get a little further on in the game.
-The biggest problem we've had so far is the difficulty of the controls for this game on the Wii versus the Xbox controls from SW:TCS. I thought the Wii would be easier for them, even though they seemed to have the Xbox version down fine. To play, you use the Wii controller and the nunchuck, and at their age this seems to be more complicated than they can handle. You move your character, use the force, and climb on vehicles with the nunchuk, and you jump, shoot/fight with the main Wii controller. In addition, in free play you use the 1-2 buttons to change characters. My 5yr old is slowly catching on, but my 3yr old is still struggling to keep up (and he had gotten pretty good at the Xbox controls). Correct me if I'm wrong, but it doesn't appear that you can use any other controllers for this game.
-Split screen....aaargh! I thought it was a pain to be trapped by your partner in SW:TCS, but the split screen just ends up confusing everyone and on bigger maps you can get completely disoriented.
TL:DR version: a fun (but tougher) game, but was disappointed at the difficulty in controls going from Xbox to Wii.
