Boy oh boy was I popular at home went this little gem dropped through the letterbox! My three sons have been avid fans of the first instalment of Lego Star Wars on the PS2 so they were all itching to play this.
Although the first game WAS a very good and playable game I was a bit non-plussed by it because it was based upon the more recent films that I have never been that passionate about.
Only having the occasional opportunity to prize the dualshocks from my kidís hands for them to attend school and sleep I felt that they were more qualified to conduct the review than myself. Therefore after a few leading questions to them here are the results.
I now present the review team :-

What do you think of the graphics?
TT1: Good music.
TT2: Thereís better music.
TT3: The sound is better as some of them are actually from the film.
BT: Yup, all those memorable sounds are in there for doors, weapons, rousing orchestral sections. They kinda wimped out on the dialogue (maybe made the multi-lingual release easier) by getting the characters the mumble in a sort of rhubarb-rhubarb way to signify they are talking about something.
What do you think of the controls?
TT1: Itís a better story.
TT2: Good because they are long so you get more time.
TT3: The story is much better as it has more ship levels in.
BT: Of course itís a better story. The originals are better films! Itís got all the memorable bits in there too. Stuck in the junk crusher, blowing up the death star, Luke losing is hand etc.
Why is Lego Star Wars 2 better then Lego Star Wars 1?
What is not so good about it?
TT1: Make it have 99 levels.
TT2: More bonuses
TT3: It could be better if more extras were available and more bonus levels.
BT: Maths is not really TT1ís strong point as he is only 5, but the game does actually have 99 levels already.
What is the BEST thing about the game?
- Classic Scenes / Funny Scenes
- Character builder
- Co-op gameplay
- Occasional issues with getting stuck on levels
- Some of the levels are quite long for young kids to play
