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!

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.

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.

All said, Lego Star Wars is one of the best games in the history of the license. True, it's geared at children, but for fans of the movies and non-fans alike, this is a truly remarkable effort at recreating the Star Wars prequels. It mixes fun light-saber action with inviting characters, interactive vibrant environments and comes packaged with some of the best Star Wars music ever made. If you come into this game with an open mind, you'll leave with a satisfied heart. At this budget price, there's no way you can go wrong with Lego Star Wars.
IGN (Apr 05, 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.

So you’re counting down the days before Episode III hits theaters, eh? Well, allow Legos Star Wars to whet your appetite until that day comes. This certainly isn’t a must-have title, unless you’re hardcore about Star Wars, but it is still a worthy use of an at times, mishandled license. Sure, it’s a bit flashy and a silly idea, but that’s where you’ll find the game’s charm. After beating it through and through, I can’t imagine playing it much more. I can still recommend it as a sufficient use of the Star Wars license, and if anything, think of it as the best thing to come out of the prequels, since the films thus far have not stood on their own.

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 (Apr 05, 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 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.
Game Informer Magazine (May, 2005)
Although it can be completed in a measly four to five hours, this is one of those games that you're going to want to keep around to pop in from time to time or show to your friends and family. In a sense, it's the perfect party game for nerds.
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.
The Video Game Critic (May 18, 2005)
Lego Star Wars' main "story" mode is brief, but there are literally hundreds of locked items and playable characters to go back and unlock. But although I was initially thrilled with the game, eventually it did start to wear thin. With an easy difficulty level and unlimited continues, there's little tension or excitement. Lego Star Wars is a little short, but the concept is cool enough to warrant a purchase.
X-Power (Jun 25, 2005)
Lego Star Wars is een solide, zij het ietwat kort, spel dat absoluut niets verkeerds doet, maar ook niets dat we met enige kritische zin origineel of bijzonder aangenaam kunnen noemen.
Jeuxvideo.com (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.
