Lego Star Wars preserves the Star Wars legacy. Even though this game parodies the franchise it's still licensed by the big man himself. Definitely recommended for a rental.

On all fronts, the game emerges as a solid and well-rounded entertainment package. Lego Star Wars is more action packed than the GBA version of Terminator 3, it's faster paced than Baldur's Gate, and offers the same level of variety as Boktai. Fans of the movies will love the combination of the Star Wars universe with a Lego theme. Even detractors of the Star Wars movies will appreciate the entertaining and action-packed isometric adventure that Lego Star Wars offers. The game's only real downfall exists in its lack of co-op linked play. With so much concentrated fun at their fingertips, players will probably emerge wishing the experience was longer, but playing through the first three movies is still a great way to hold gamers over until the new movie is released on May 19th. Or until the Episode III videogame is released to consoles.

Well, to answer the question I'm sure is on everyone?s lips 'this one is better.... much better?. What makes LEGO Star Wars so much more enjoyable than Ubi Soft's effort though is the fact that the while thing is much more successful in placing you in the Star Wars Universe mostly due to the ingenious way it balances ?The Force? with the LEGO building blocks themselves. There's also the sound, which is incredible, and given George Lucas's obsession with the soundtrack of a movie the developers have no doubt impressed the Star Wars creator here. The only real criticism is the game?s length but given that the initial play through is so satisfying, and there's also the question of seeking out all the bonus items, this is a minor quibble.

Lego Star Wars is among the umpteen GBA games that are based upon either the Star Wars franchise or the Lego toys. But combining the two together in a single package actually creates something special on the handheld system. The pairing of the two licenses works surprisingly well, offering gamers a decidedly different take on the past and upcoming Lucas films. The GBA version, though not quite as deep, does a great job complimenting the also unexpectedly great PS2 and Xbox versions. Don't let the flat, plastic faces on the box frighten you away from the meaty package inside...it's a whole new way to use the Force.

However, while it lasts, Lego Star Wars is still a surprising good time, designed elegantly in every category and feeling like a refreshing change of pace from the other failures in the Star Wars release line. The force is strong with this one, even if it's made of Lego blocks.

Kleiner Trost für die fehlende Cube-Version, nur leider sehr kurz.

As Star Wars games go, Lego Star Wars on the GBA is one of the better ones. It's faithful to the characters and storylines from the movies, and it's also a solid hack-and-slash with a good variety of characters and levels. More importantly, the Lego style gives players a fresh way to look at the franchise, which is much appreciated considering that more than 100 different Star Wars games have been made up to this point, seven of them for the GBA alone.

A very pleasant surprise this one, we certainly weren't expecting to be this game to be much more than a gimmick to cash-in on the new film but we thankfully we have been proved wrong. Star Wars fans will definitely want to pick this one up.

LEGO Star Wars for the Game Boy Advance is an ok game. It's probably the third best handheld Star Wars game behind Apprentice of the Force and New Droid Army. It's at least much better than a disaster like Flight of the Falcon. However if you have a PC or console, you should skip this and go with those far better versions.

GameSpy (Apr 05, 2005)
Underneath all of the character imbalance, graphical bugs, odd level distribution, and unrealized LEGO potential is a decent, if sadly uneventful game. Maybe my hopes were set too high after playing the excellent PS2 and Xbox versions, but I was expecting more than just an "average" game. Hopefully, the sequel based on the original trilogy (oh, please make one) will be more impressive.

Décevant. C'est ce que l'on retient de ce Lego Star Wars qui pourtant semblait assez prometteur. Limité, possédant une jouabilité peu intuitive et exposant une carence scénaristique terrifiante, le jeu d'Eidos nivelle par le bas ses seuls points positifs, à savoir la réalisation et l'ambiance générale. Néanmoins, on ne peut pas dire que ce titre soit insupportable. Amusant quelques heures et surtout possédant une sorte de second degré peut-être inconscient, il pourra vous faire passer quelques bons moments. Si tant est que vous le trouviez à moins de 10 euros.
