This game is pure genius, so much fun and the drop-in drop-out two player mode really works. See your kid struggling with a level, jump in and help him/her blast a few stormtroopers then go back to your gardening...
It has humour, lots of "I remember that bit from the film" moments (the proper Star War films, that is!) and lots of replay value - trying to get the elusive mini-kits, red bricks and earn money for the extra characters.

Whoever came up with Lego and Star Wars as a concept for a video game must have been on something, but I'm glad he was!

My top tips for this game are:
1) Save your money until you have completed Story mode, you can then spend it wisely in Freeplay mode. Most of the characters you'll need (Luke, Darth, Boba Fett) become available for nowt once you've defeated them
2) Keep an eye out for the red bricks, once found they give you the extras to buy e.g invincibility, super lasers etc
3) Boba Fett is the main man, especially with bounty hunter rockets enabled. He flies like R2D2 but packs a punch too
4) Once you've purchased an extra, it isn't enabled by default (took me a while to sus this !). Once in the game, press Start, then Extras to toggle them on and off
5) Ghost characters are expensive (the enemy cannot see you so won't shoot you !) but invincibility is better value (900,000 studs) to start with
6) Don't waste time struggling to get that high-up mini-kit in story mode. Most of them aren't attainable until you do it in Freeplay with a Jedi or Bounty Hunter

Note - I've reviewed the Prima Game Guide on here also

Go on, Force yourself (sorry!)

I bought the first Lego Star Wars for my son and ended up playing it as much as he did, which was hours and hours together. The Lego genre is great - lots of dexterity required to play the game, but the most fun is solving the problems. Yes, you can look up the cheats but it is great fun to work out together what needs to be done. And even then there is opportunity to return to levels to get more canisters with the different characters unlocked. Great game - never got tired of this or the first until it was all, totally, finished!

This is my 5 year old sons favourite game. Due to his age his character does die frequently but thanks to the games design he doesn't have to restart the same level again and again. The ability for someone else to enter the game to help with some of more difficult puzzles and then leave again is very useful feature that more games should offer. A very good buy, but probably not for older children.

This game is great fun. My favourite chapter is 5 where you get to kill Darth Vader in free play in Episode IV.

When me and my friend started chapter 5 in Episode VI we were really excited because you get to kill the Emperor.

This game is probably one of the best ideas ever had. most of us have played with LEGO at some point in our lives and have loads of fun building destroying again, building again destroying again... creating something completely unrecognizable to anyone else, but something special and cool to our own unique imagination standards.

The only problem with this is that your imagination can only take you so far, and we all wished at one point (wekll i did at least) that the characters would come to life and we could control them like our own personal army (mwah haa haa!!).

well these game encapsulate that, almost seemlessly.

whether you're 5 or 50 this game is awesome.

I bought this game as something for my 5 year old and his dad to play together and it has been a roaring success. It's easy enough for my son to play on his own but some of the puzzles are challenging enough to keep an adult interested. The dropout feature is great - really useful for when he needs more help or a character gets stuck - just drop that character out of play and the computer catches him up on it's own. The Lego characters also make the game less scary, an important point when finding appropriate material for younger children. I've found it hard to find playstation games for this age group - I'd heartily recommend this one!

dont hesatate in buying this game as it still looks and plays brilliantly, plus you can play co-op if you want.
bought this for my 5 year olds sons birthday and ive been helping him out with some of the slightly more tricky bits and weve been laughing all the way through this game as the star wars parrodys and funny bits are great.

I got this game as a christmas present, the lego star wars game was one of my first lego games out of the series.
I thought what a load of rubish,but when I completed a chapter I thought what a great game,good grapics and has the same story lines as the movies 4 to 6.So buy the game for you and your children.

Bought this for 8 year old son - he already had Lego Star Wars I and this was the obvious follow up game. I don't understand everything about the game myself but it seems to keep him happy for any period of time. Dad also likes to play if he gets a look in.
