Portable goofy goodness.
A. It's completely portable, and loses none of its charm
B. The subject material is truly more interesting, as it comes from the original trilogy.
Yes, this one is set in the old fashioned trilogy, giving for hilarious moments. The controls are similar to the console versio, with the exception that you have to rely on an occasionally spotty camera instead of being able to move it. Still, the action remains simplistic, making it fun for all gamers.
The space fights have changed from the rail system of the first game to a more player controlled version. Though this makes the game a bit more challenging, it is none the less fun.
Being able to create a character is a plus, as you can mix and match lego parts (picture a Jawa as a Jedi master). However, the fact that you can only use your character after you beat a level is a little turn off, but it is still pretty fun to be able to do.
All in all, you can't go wrong with a Lego Star Wars game, especially this one. It may not look the best, but it certainly looks good for the DS. The game appeals to those who hate star wars and those who love it, giving an interesting little twist on a familiar series.
