LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars will include all the characters from both seasons of the hugely popular animated television series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, as well as some fan-favorite characters from the beloved theatrical Star Wars Saga. The game will feature brand new battle modes, giving players unique, head-to-head combat and an upgraded level builder, allowing the creation of customized bases and in-game battlefields. Play either as a Jedi or Separatist with all-new character abilities, such as Squad command, Lightsaber slicing, Lightsaber jumps, long distance Jedi attacks and Grapple Tie-Ups, all within a new, easy-to-navigate hub.
I pre-ordered this game from amazon and I am happy to say that I'm very pleased. Lego really sets a high bar with this amazing game. As said in other reviews, you can choose to follow either Ventress, Dooku, and Grievous. These can be selected at the "hub". The games have great graphics and stunning fluidity of movement. Each Jedi moves like it really should, with lightsaber moves that vary with each character. For instance, Yoda moves with the usual jumps/spins, while Obi Wan slices one way, and Anakin another. Another great feature is the vast Republic and Separatist starships. When starting, you explore the Republic Crusier (seen on TV). To go to the level selection, you look at a hologram-projector. The game sets goals for you too. In order to explore everything available, you have to get gold bricks. (Obtained through Level Completion, "Minikit" collection, and "True Jedi" Status. I have gotten enough bricks to explore almost all of the Republic Ship. My favorite part is that you can jump into AT-RTs, AT-TEs, and other ground vehicles during the large ground battles. I don't want to spoil anymore! It is too good of a game to tell everything!
