Lego Star Wars III The Clone Wars

Post by ThunderFighter » Mon Feb 08, 2010 9:47 am

New Lego star wars game coming out fall this year :D
http://www.joystiq.com/2010/02/08/lego- ... platforms/

"And here we thought the well of Lego Star Wars material had dried up. Perhaps we've underestimated TT Games, which has revealed that it's constructing a new armed and fully operational entry in the series: Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars. Destined for an Autumn 2010 release on the Xbox 360, PS3, PSP, Nintendo DS and Wii, the game will focus on the events of the Cartoon Network animated series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

Expect "brand new battle modes, giving players unique, head-to-head combat" and an expanded level editor, allowing potential Padawans and Seperatists the chance to construct their own "customized bases and in-game battlefields." You'll also be able to employ new tactics throughout the game, such as "Squad command, Lightsaber slicing, Lightsaber jumps, long distance Jedi attacks and Grapple Tie-Ups."

Wait, lightsaber slicing? Does that mean the obvious, or the radical ability to slice through lightsabers?"

Most of the video games released these days never include PC because too many people hack or download them. The company doesn't make money like this and its harder for people to hack or mod an Xbox or PS3 than just straight downloading from a computer.

So, anyone playing this? I'm at about 33% completion right now. It's a lot of fun, building (pun unintended) upon the foundation of the first two. The RTS type of play on the larger battles is an interesting addition. The space battles are still just okay - so far most of them have been "fly around and find a place where you have to land in order to get out and do stuff", which could have just as easily been done without the flying. I like all the different characters available.

The hub is AMAZING - at first I wasn't at all impressed... I thought it was just the bridge of a Venator. As I continued to play the game, though, I noticed I could build the missing pieces of doors to other chambers of the ship (via collecting gold bricks during gameplay). You can explore a vast array of different areas of the Venator, and then, just when you think you've seen it all, buy or use a previously acquired ship in the hangar bay and fly over to the Separatist's ship and explore that one! I've only explored the hangar and one chamber of the Separatist's ship, but it's really cool. I bought a few bad guys (Count Dooku, Jango Fett, some droids) and the Slave I.

I haven't played it yet. Waiting for a sale/promo on games since I'd be getting this title on the Wii. Like what you have said so far so please keep us posted.
