wish that trailer was representative of the in game visuals. I can't imagine it is. That would be a HUMONGOUS step up in quality from current lego titles. But it looks great.

Doesn't look any different from other LEGO games.

it's sad that the only true lego-like experience has been the movie tie-in. i just hate the animated way these mini-figs move. and the way they exist in a lego scale real world...just weird.

I loved this trailer, it's very faithful to the movie and very funny. That part with the stormtroopers, the flickering light and the helmet being thrown made me laugh out loud. Great trailer and I'm gonna keep an eye on this game.

    MrWhite Games, lower prices on things, and all firmware stuff sorted, and I see now reason why it wont be a success. So basically, about 6 months to a year to wait (1 Hour ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Basically the way I see it is this: it needs a handful of games, some sociable ones, and a few of its other niggling caveats to be consolidated as to be reasonable. (1 Hour ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite as if they'd very little understanding of what the thing actually is, and what it's trying to do. (1 Hour ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Yeah, most seem reasonable in their concerns. But it sounds resoundingly positive as far as the hardware goes. Unless you're IGN of course. They basically just shat on it (1 Hour ago)
