THE HORROR!!!

User Rating: 2 | LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy DS
This game should have been great. Many different levels covering the major Star Wars flicks, character creator option, large amount of replay value, Legos! How can game with all these things turn out to be a mess? Well play for 15 or so minutes and you'll begin to realize why. The problem lies within the game breaking bugs!

Cutscenes will trigger in and out and sometimes stop for a good 30 seconds. Your character can fall through the floors for no apparent reason, and will respawn you over the same invisible pit until you miracously move a few inches to a solid floorboard. Missions will cease to continue if you fail to go about the level in just the right fashion. And the game can even lock up on you after creating a character!

There's just no excuse for such a bug-riddled game to be on the DS. I can appreciate what the developers were shooting for, but this is nearly unplayable!

The only thing holding me back from giving this game a 1 out of 10 is that when it's working, it can be fun. Yeah, fun! And when you aren't falling into bottomless pits the game retains a crisp look. But sorry to say, that's all it has going for it.

I wanted to like this game, I did. But there's too much bad outweighing the good to really hold anyone's interest or sanity for that matter. This is one Lego creation that would have been better off unbulit or smashed by a sugar-high 6 year old. Just say no.
