Kids say (7 ):

The Star Wars franchise has always occupied a lively fantasy world, but LEGO Star Wars: The Video Game takes George Lucas's sci-fi universe to new, silly extremes. The result is an even stranger invention of otherworldly beings and space cowboy heroics that should entertain fans of the movies and LEGOs alike. The excellent details make LEGO Star Wars a refreshing take on a video game franchise that has been overloaded with (both good and bad) titles.

Gameplay is easy enough to allow younger kids to solve the simple problems the game throws at them, explore the nicely detailed world of the movies, and have fun in this whimsical take on the Star Wars universe. Violent scenes from the movies are shown in the game's cut scenes, but the fact that characters are unrealistic toy figurines helps diminish the impact of the violence. That, plus the lighthearted treatment of the story and ample humor makes LEGO Star Wars the best choice for younger gamers looking to play a Star Wars title.
