Lego Star Wars III Clone Wars 

 

When we finished up with Lego Star Wars II, I thought the franchise was done. Not the Lego franchise, the Star Wars Lego franchise. All six movies had been covered, and I did not think it had anywhere else to go. Well I was wrong. LucasArts went into The Clone Wars to produce Lego Star Wars III The Clone Wars. This game is on multiple platforms. I used the Wii version to write this review. This review only covers the home console version of this game, not any of the hand helds.

The Lego video games are generally considered safe for families. I bet you could find gaming sites that will tell you that. They usually ignore one small fact - there is violence in Lego Star Wars III The Clone Wars. The ESRB gave this game an ‘E10+’ rating for a reason. It is not rated ‘EC’, or ‘E’. So parents need to keep that in mind.

Visually Lego Star Wars III The Clone Wars looks pretty good. The last Lego Star Wars game I remember playing was on the previous generation. So the Wii is definitely a step up. Enemies fall to pieces, as does the player when their hearts are all gone. Studs are collected throughout levels to unlock content. The violence in Lego Star Wars III The Clone Wars involves lasers, explosions, and light sabers.

Do you know the Star Wars music? If you do, then you will recognize the music in Lego Star Wars III The Clone Wars. Humor is done without dialogue. Either you appreciate it, or can’t stand it. I have learned to tolerate it. Special effect sounds go along with the violent visual images.

There are three main storylines to play in Lego Star Wars III The Clone Wars. Players go from planet to planet completing missions. Different characters have different skills. To get 100% of any level you will need all types. This means replaying the levels in Free Play. This can be annoying not knowing what can and can’t be unlocked. Two family members can enjoy Lego Star Wars III The Clone Wars at the same time.

Lego Star Wars III The Clone Wars is better than previous games about the stuck spots. The stuck spots are when something must be done a certain way to progress. The game does not spell it out though. So players can be stuck in a room completely frustrated. Especially if you have not seen the television show. This still happens and is annoying beyond belief. The rest of Lego Star Wars III The Clone Wars is fun, and enjoyable for the right ages. Maybe a sequel will surprise me with even more improvements.
