Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this is a humorous depiction of the Star Wars universe. Kids will be blasting their way through this world, but what they blow up are LEGOs. Since this is a parody of the Star Wars movies, parents might want to rent the movies before their kids play the game so that they can better enjoy the humor.
Is It Any Good?
LEGO Star Wars II continues the tongue-in-cheek humor that so endeared the original game to its fans. Testers were amused by their ability to customize characters in the Free Mode. By interchanging body parts of over 50 playable characters, they were able to create Darth 3PO and Princess Leia Kenobi.
LucasArts has been careful to keep the mechanics of the game easy, so children can play. For example, you are given infinite lives. But the experienced Yodas of gaming will also find a challenge by turning on the special adaptive difficulty feature -- the better you play, the harder the game gets. For Star Wars fan both young and old, don't miss this one -- it's exciting, funny, and makes you think.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
