So there you have it. If your kids are into Star Wars this game will provide hours of entertainment with out the frustration of trying to get through stages. And once they go to bed, the adults can have fun with the game as well.
Despite its short length and simplistic controls, Lego Star Wars is one of the most enjoyable games I?ve picked up in quite a while. Although I was able to waltz through the entire game over a weekend, I still haven?t collected 100% of everything in the game. I highly recommend Lego Star Wars to all fans (however remote) of Legos, Star Wars, or platformers in general.

Anyone who's even remotely interested in Star Wars (or LEGO, for the matter) owes it to themselves to give this game a try. It's definitely not a serious look in to the franchise, but this game has been marinating in fun for months, and the goodness has soaked all the way in. If you don't break into a big, dopey grin while running around shattering LEGO Battle Droids into their component parts, then you should just put videogames down for good -- you've outgrown them. Now, let's start hoping that we seen a LEGO game based on the classic Star Wars trilogy in the future. I want to fight a big, blocky Rancor!

This May will mark the end of the second trilogy in the Star Wars franchise. As the premiere quickly approaches, a few new Star Wars games are being released to drive the hype. One of the first games to be released is Lego Star Wars: The Video Game. This little hidden gem is not only a throwback to the 16-bit days of arcade action, it is one of the more creative creations in recent videogame history.
Press Start Online (Nov 21, 2006)
The biggest gripe against the game is that, single-player or not, doing absolutely everything in the game won’t take many gamers long at all. LEGO Star Wars is easy, make no mistake about it, but the time that is invested will result in some of the best gaming fun you’ll have had in a long time.
PSX Extreme (Apr 13, 2005)
Sure, LEGO Star Wars is easy. Sure, it looks like a game for kids. These things are undeniable; however, what else is undeniable is just how much fun that playing this game is, despite its appearance. The game's limited difficulty also makes it all the easier to go back and replay your favorite stages and find enough Lego studs to unlock your favorite characters to play with. There are also other secrets that the game has to offer for thorough players and the ability to play with a friend. It's a deceptively deep game in terms of replay value. My only advice—and I cannot be clear enough on this—is to understand that Episode III is playable and there indeed are a few spoilers that could detract from the experience when you go to see Revenge of the Sith in May. I only say this because, if you're interested in this game at all and reading this review, you've already got plans for opening night. Right?

So, whilst clearly aimed at younger gamers, Lego Star Wars is definitely worth checking out if you're either a Star Wars or Lego fan, and if you're in a similar boat to me, it's essential that you at least rent it. And, if you're constantly troubled by what to buy for your own younglings, look no further; this is the perfect thing for them to enjoy after school, and for you to enjoy by night. Best of all? You can plug in a second pad and join in at any time, using Force powers in tandem to complete puzzles, tackling Darth Maul as a team, and taking Dooku now! to withering effect. If you're a Star Wars fan wondering where the magic went, look no further.

LEGO Star Wars ist der Traum jedes Kindes im Manne: LEGO und Star Wars! Und es nutzt beide Lizenzen bis zur kleinsten Schraube aus! Und so skurril die Mischung anfangs auch klingen mag - Traveller’s Tales hat ein spannendes, witziges und für Spieler jeden Alters taugliches Game entwickelt, das man einfach gern haben muss! Dieses Spiel zaubert schon nach kürzester Zeit ein sehr breites Grinsen in das Gesicht eines jeden, der einen Blick darauf werfen konnte – man darf nicht den Fehler machen, es als blödsinnigen Kinderkram abzustempeln.
PlayFrance (Apr 18, 2005)
LEGO Star Wars aurait sûrement gagné en qualité avec une profondeur de jeu accrue, notamment au niveau du nombre d'attaques et de la gestion de la caméra. Mais rien que le fait d'arriver à rassembler le jeune public et les seniors sans que ceux-ci soient lésés au niveau du plaisir de jeu, de l'enveloppe graphique ou du contenu est déjà un petit exploit en soit ! Les fans de la série apprécieront la transposition fidèle du scénario, tandis que la sublime bande sonore finira d'achever les rares sceptiques qui penseraient encore que LEGO et Guerre des Etoiles n'ont rien à voir ensemble. A bon entendeur !
UOL Jogos (Apr 29, 2005)
Provavelmente, o único grupo excluído deverá ser o dos jogadores hardcore, que possivelmente enxergarão um game lento, fácil demais e sem espaço para exibição de virtuosismo nos controles. Aos demais, a Força será aliada inseparável. Ainda mais jogando em duplas.
EL33TONLINE (Nov 28, 2006)
For once I can fully endorse a film tie-in game. This is how it should be done guys! You developers out there that ruin perfectly good films by bringing out sub standard games should sit up and take notice of this one. Best of all guys, it’s really really cheap! You really can’t afford to miss this game.
IGN (Mar 28, 2005)
If you're a parent, LEGO Star Wars: The Video Game should be at the top of your child's birthday list. It has everything a family-oriented title needs: it has personality, puzzles, cooperative modes, replay value, low violence, a lack of frustrating difficulty, and most importantly, it has Darth Vader. And that's what makes it enjoyable for adults too, because let's face it; Darth Vader makes everything better -- it's a fact.
Daily Game (Apr 18, 2005)
It’s pretty scary to think that a videogame based on the Lego-ization of Star Wars characters turns out being more enjoyable than the last two Star Wars films. And yet, Lego Star Wars, Eido’s Lego-riffic take on George Lucas’ movie empire does just that – it’s simply an enjoyable romp through all three of the latest Star Wars films that both kids and adults can enjoy. While it’s skewed more towards the kiddie demographic, there’s enough good old fashioned fun here to keep adults playing through this relatively short action title.
78 (May 02, 2005)
Endlich mal ein gelungenes Abenteuer mit Lego-Lizenz. Auch wenn der Schwierigkeitsgrad des gewaltfreien Kinderspiels Gamer unterfordert, bringt vor allem der Koop-Modus auch großen Jungs und Mädels Spaß. Die Lego-Welt hat einfach Charme. Das ideale Spiel, um es gemeinsam mit seinen Kindern, Nichten und Neffen oder der sonst Videospielen gegenüber abgeneigten Freundin zu spielen. Lego-Fans freuen sich schon darauf, dass vielleicht noch andere Filme wie Harry Potter oder Spider-Man mit den kleinen Männchen umgesetzt werden.
GameSpot (Mar 29, 2005)
This is probably one of the better kids' games to hit the market in a while, and that it's clever and charming enough to appeal to adults is a testament to that fact. The novelty of watching a little Lego person version of Obi-Wan Kenobi duel it out with Darth Maul certainly accounts for a large portion of the game's appeal, but on its own merits it's a fairly fun, inventive little game.
I have a sneaking suspicion that embittered Star Trek fans banded together and created this game with the specific intent of humiliating Star Wars fans. When I openly exclaim, "Darth Maul is so adorable! I wish I could hug and squeeze him" with the heart-aching enthusiasm of someone looking at a puppy in a pet store window, I know there are greater forces at work. Emitting a power much like that of the Jedi mind trick, LEGO Star Wars will make you say things that you never thought you would, and will put an ear-to-ear smile on your face as you soak in its satirical storytelling, silly visuals, and entertaining gameplay.
Game Revolution (Apr 21, 2005)
Lego Star Wars achieves what regular Star Wars, in recent history, has been unable to do: deliver a children's experience that is fun and engaging for adults as well. One of the better children's titles released this year, it's the droid your kids were looking for.
MAN!AC (Apr 29, 2005)
Lego plus "Star Wars" gleich Spielspaß? Auf den ersten Blick: Ja! Dank unkomplizierter Spielmechanik ist keine lange Einarbeitung erforderlich. Das simple - und leider viel zu kurze - Abenteuer macht gerade zu zweit richtig Laune. Wenn Ihr nicht gerade auf der Suche nach Geheimnissen seid, ist das Spiel schon nach etwa zwei bis drei Stunden durchgezockt. Boni-Jäger erfreuen sich zum Glück an massig Extras, die erst später freigespielt oder erkauft werden. Negativ: Mit etwas ungenauer Steuerung kann ich leben, manchmal fehlt jedoch die Übersicht aufgrund der festen Kameraperspektiven. Auch die dumme Partner-KI enttäuscht. Trotzdem: Dank charmanter Knuddel-Figuren und Simpel-Spielprinzip ist "Lego Star Wars" genau das Richtige für zwischendurch.
Diehard GameFan (Apr 11, 2005)
Just seeing the incredible number of playable characters that are unavailable during the Story quest is enough to keep coming back for more, but that’s not even the only reason. The entire game is easy to learn and play and the graphics and animations are entertaining throughout.
Edge (Apr 14, 2005)
By design, it's not meant to be a game to be savoured and obsessed over. It's for dipping into, and happily revisiting. With so many action games of recent times feeling so demanding and so preoccupied with reward for skill, and skill alone, it's all the better for it. Kids are often underestimated, but that doesn't mean their games should be. Lego Star Wars has an appeal that goes beyond age, even if it's one that rarely goes beyond 20 minutes at a time.
Gamestyle (2005)
So, the quintessential Star Wars game then? Not quite, but it's not far removed from being one of the most 'complete' Star Wars titles on the market. Simple enough to hook gamers and non-gamers alike - and with enough charm to keep you coming back - it's the short lifespan of story mode that prevents Lego Star Wars from scoring a higher mark.
40 (Apr 22, 2005)
En dehors de l'aspect parodique qu'on peut trouver amusant, il n'y a pas grand chose à tirer de Lego Star Wars. L'action s'enlise rapidement et il faut réellement lutter pour arriver à la fin. Je reste persuadé qu'acheter de vraies petites briques pour construire un Yoda géant est encore bien plus fun.
