It's basically more of the same from the now critically acclaimed Lego Franchise, this time Star Wars once again taking precedence of recent incarnations from the likes of Batman and Harry Potter. Here, more specifically, it's the world of the Clone Wars TV show that the player gets to play through, and like all Lego titles before it, it's a game that does attempts nothing groundbreaking but is all the more better because of it.
Lego Star Wars III maintains the same basic formula of its processors: take familiar characters and situations, and transform them into their Lego counterparts, in which they battle through worlds accessible to both kids and adults alike. Missions and objectives aren't overly complicated, but their placement is so well arranged the story always feels fresh and well paced.
Another nice addition is Galactic Conquest mode where a strategy element is introduced and where mapping is used to co-ordinate attacks. But the main story is where the majority of time will be spent.
Engaging, fun, and embarrassingly addictive.
