Lego Star Wars in stores
Eidos' latest game targets both children and nostalgic adults; chronicles first three episodes in building-block form.
Eidos has announced that Lego Star Wars is now in stores for the Xbox, PlayStation 2, PC, and Game Boy Advance. The PS2, Xbox, and PC versions were codeveloped by UK studios Giant Interactive Entertainment and Traveller's Tales, and the GBA version was developed by Amaze Entertainment.
Lego Star Wars is an action game set against the backdrop of Star Wars (Episodes I-III), with a twist. All the elements in the game--characters, vehicles, buildings--are entirely composed of virtual Legos.
Players will control dozens of characters from the Star Wars franchise, including Obi-Wan, Anakin, and Jar-Jar Binks. Each character has specific strengths, which will be necessary for the game's puzzle elements. Other features of the game include racing stages and cooperative play.
Lego Star Wars is rated E for Everyone and has an SRP of $39.99 for the Xbox and PS2 versions and $29.99 for the PC and GBA versions. For more information, check out GameSpot's full review of the game.
