Overview

I was ‘made’ to play on the Wii last night with my son, who had got stuck with “what to do next”… he went to bed at 8, and I finished playing around midnight!!!
I’m not a big game player, but this is a really fun game to play, and despite my protestations about being too busy, cooking tea etc., I loved playing it.

The Game

You can either play this on your own, or as we did last night play two players working together, which is great with ‘smallish’ children.

You initially start off in the “Cantina” with a number of doors to go through, which eventually (after completion of the intro/training level) allows you to access each of the six Star wars episodes.

Each episode then has 6 levels to be completed firstly in story mode, after which you can play in free mode, or replay to beat your score.
All of the episodes are from the movies, and the fantastically animated star wars Lego characters are beautifully created, and easily identifiable from the films.
The ability to then be some of the more diverse (and evil) characters like Darth Maul in freeplay gives the game a real longevity.

The main aim of the game is to collect lego studs (money), which can be used to buy and develop new powers, characters and vehicles etc, although my son seemed more intent on a ‘dash-for-the-finish’ line…which caused a few heated ‘hang on a second’ conversations.

At the end of each level you can replay, or go back to the cantina and spend your hard earned money and then decide to carry on with that episode or jump to a different one.

The special missions that appear throughout the game, like smashing up lego city are really good fun, and I think one of the really good aspects of this game is the variation in the levels, including racing games, landspeeder chases, AT-AT fighting etc.
Saying that, you don’t need to be a Star Wars guru to enjoy this game, and you don’t need superb reactions, or Wii skills!

Summary

This is a lovely game for children, as there is no blood and gore, and the animations make for a fun/safe feel.

Graphically, this game is superb, the music is straight from the movies and the gameplay is superb and keeps you coming back for more.

We had a really good interactive evening, and it was certainly better for the family than sitting watching Cbeebies!

I would recommend this game to any Wii owner – whether with or without kids!
