If you haven't played the other Lego SW titles, and you fancy a bit of straightforward, enjoyable platform action, this is an essential purchase. It's also great for younger gamers, especially if you like to play co-operatively. And the sharp, shiny, varied visuals make it one of the best-looking games on the Wii. Star Wars fans will love it.
The big thing, at least as far as the Wii version is concerned, is the lightsaber mechanic. The first time you swing the remote and your character swings their saber it is a real thrill. Especially when the remote vibrates and you hear the familiar whooshhzzz sound emit from its speaker.
