Perhaps the best compliment that one can pay to LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga is that it feels like you're playing with a living LEGO playset. The ability to shatter LEGO Stormtroopers into their separate components or tear down a LEGO wall and build it into a bridge really narrows the gap between videogame and interactive toy. If you've somehow missed out on the first two games, then you definitely need to give this one a go. With both of the previous games and bonus content, it's a great value and it'll provide hours of entertainment. LSW veterans, however, might not want to dive in so soon, however, as you've played most of this game already.
Very few Star Wars games are this good. Two years ago I had my doubts about the idea of combining Legos and Star Wars. I had played the LEGO Island PC game that came out in 1997 and had thought that it was simply a way to take advantage of kids that liked playing with Legos by tricking them into buying a lame PC game. The LEGO Star Wars series is just the opposite. If anything it is bringing more credibility back to a license that has seen its fair share of stinkers over the years.
When all is said and done LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Sage is a fantastic game that deserves to be played by everyone. It is easily accessible, truly addictive, and loaded with tons of content to warrant the $50 price tag. However, if you have already played through the first two games there is little here worth coming back for unless online co-op and more Achievement points are your thing. Otherwise this is a must own for Star Wars fans and anyone who enjoys great games.
The bottom line is that for sheer cross-demographic fun, the LEGO Star Wars games are hands-down some of the best you can buy. The question of course is where you've already bought the games in the past, because you're basically buying them all over again just to get the full collection. Online play is indeed fun for just screwing around with buddies or even other family members, but don't make the mistake of thinking this is an entirely new game. Instead, think of it as getting two games, plus online play, plus HD visuals all for the price of one next-gen game. In the end, so long as you haven't tired of the series yet, it's a damn fine value, and something that you can buy for just about any gamer guilt-free. Dare we call it the perfect go-to holiday gift for a PS3 owning family? Sure, why not?
Without doubt, this is the best Lego Star Wars game, but that could be because it’s all the Lego Star Wars games. The experience is a good length, without even engaging the replays, and its feel-good manner and attention to its source material is unmatched for a licensed game. That being said, the new content is pretty skimpy, though online co-op gets the thumbs up from Yoda. If you haven’t been to a galaxy far, far away in awhile, why not try it Lego style?

These titles are true classics from the last generation. They have been skillfully upgraded by the folks at TT Games to give us the definitive edition. The graphics are crisp, the sounds and music are authentic, the unlockable content is broad and deep, and the cuteness factor is off the charts. This game is not for everyone, but it is quite good. Fans of either Star Wars or Lego will love these games. The puzzles that you will encounter are not particularly challenging, but they are fun. This really is the perfect set of games that the whole family can enjoy. Besides, who couldn't use another Star Wars title?
LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga is exactly what we've come to expect from the long-running series. The gameplay itself isn't deep, the lack of voice acting is disturbing, and the Stud-collecting can get extremely boring. But it's not required, and everything about this game is plenty accessible. It's fantastic fun for two players (great for the whole family, too), those 36 chapters provide a huge amount of gameplay time, the levels are diverse, it can be very funny, and the entire production will make you grin. It's hardly a supremely polished blockbuster, but it's worth playing, especially for Star Wars fans.
If you were hoping that The Complete Saga would push the series into new territory, you'll be disappointed. At its best, the game is a well-polished collection of a pair of quickly-ageing gems. At its worst, it feels a tad stagnant, and we hope TT's upcoming LEGO-based games, LEGO Batman and LEGO Indiana Jones take the idea in a fresh direction. So aside from the camera controls, not-so-snappy studs and some problems with pacing in a handful of places, Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga is a solid game, and one of the rare titles on Xbox 360 and PS3 that the family can safely sit down together to play. If you've waited until now to try Lego Star Wars, this is definitely the game to buy. If you've already visited this far-away snap-together galaxy, you've probably seen it all before.
While the flying levels are frustrating and the change-characters-to-hit-this-switch mechanic gets old, the great humor and extras make Lego Star Wars worth playing if you haven't tried it yet. The $50 price tag is a great deal for the amount of game you're getting, but if you've already played through the first two trilogies, there's not much reason to do so again (other than the online co-op).
Many of the changes and additions in The Complete Saga are the types that only those who've played through Lego Star Wars I or II would notice, and that's the rub. For those who've already played one of the Lego Star Wars games, a full half of what The Complete Saga has to offer will be recycled. The online co-op play in the 360 and PS3 versions helps, since playing the game with another person can change the dynamic and pacing of the game quite a bit, but otherwise it would be much more cost-effective to just pick up a used copy of the one you haven't played.
Game Informer Magazine
Hey everybody! The entire LEGO Star Wars saga has been crammed into one disc with two-player online co-op (not on Wii), a few new characters (Indiana Jones! Zam Wessell!), some bonus levels (mostly bounty hunter missions), new hi-res graphics on the original trilogy, an easier Podrace, retrofitted LSW 2 mechanics on LSW 1 episodes, and instant access to the first level of every episode. Despite all of these cool minor additions, the core gameplay feels mostly like one big retread. With all of the great new games coming out this holiday, it’s hard to justify replaying this series. For diehard fans, however, this is the definitive LEGO Star Wars game.
Sans révolutionner une série qui a déjà fait ses preuves, LEGO Star Wars : La Saga Complète offre aux joueurs PS3 une belle occasion de redécouvrir l’œuvre de George Lucas sous un jour nouveau. Relativement accessible, le jeu plaira aussi bien aux adultes fans des films qu’aux plus jeunes et la variété des niveaux permet de ne jamais s’ennuyer. Bien sûr il est préférable de jouer en coopération pour profiter au mieux du gameplay proposé mais les nombreux bonus à débloquer feront aussi la joie des amateurs d’aventure en solo. Seule petite ombre tableau, la réalisation bien qu’améliorée pour son changement de plateforme ne semble pas vraiment tirer parti des capacités de la machine, et quelques défauts déjà présents sur PS2 n’ont pas été réglés. L’ensemble reste toutefois convaincant et agréable à jouer.
It seems that for every minor flaw that can be raised against LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga, the game has a positive point to counter it. Yes, the computer-controlled camera sometimes chooses frustrating angles but both sound effects and score make excellent use of such famous source material. And while the title is basically rehash of a couple of previous games, with ten to twenty hours of play to complete the story mode alone, you're certainly getting value for money. The most important thing however is that the force is strong with LEGO Star Wars, which makes for the kind of good, old fashioned fun that you don't need to travel to a galaxy far, far away to find - just your local videogame retailer.
