Lego Stars Wars: The Clone Wars is like the TV series. It uses episodes from seasons one and two of the Clone Wars series for the chapters. You get to experience various episodes from series in game form and complete them just as they were from the episodes.

An interesting fact about this game is that it opens up in Geonosian area from episode two of the original saga. The Jedi order comes to rescue Obi-Wan, Anakin and Padmé from the Separatist, along with battling a endless waves of droids, the same creatures used in the execution being included, and getting to face the droid army similar to how it was after the battle in the area ended with the rescue. I could not get enough of this game and when playing it. It was actually more of a challenge than the complete saga was.

Some of the new features this game includes is split screen combat, which is during certain chapters of the campaign, the chapter splits into two parts to complete in order to proceed.

There is also Republic and Separatist Assaults which is fighting on the surface of any of the planets you can choose from with a certain objective to complete, and you get to construct bases with weapons and barracks to call in troops and vehicles.

Some of the objectives may be building an escape pod to escape the planet, destroying a command center, or destroying all the enemy bases. The assaults are also timed, so this basic strategic combat for you.

As for the use of the force in this game when compared to the other two, you actually have to use the joystick you use to move with to move objects around instead of the computer doing it for you while just holding down one button.

All new character features include lightsaber throwing, picking up droids, and stepping on certain pads in which Jedi do “combo moves” to destroy certain objects. Vehicle levels have been altered. Now, players can land their ship and begin fighting on foot.

When compared to the complete saga, this game gives better use of the lightsabers and the Force.

These Lego games always provide a challenging experience in their stories. Whether you are playing on your own or with a partner there is always a challenge after the last to face, and each one becomes more difficult to complete. Words of the Jedi, “May the Force be with You.”
