Star Wars is one of the most lucrative franchises in the world. George Lucas, the creator of the film, has garnered millions of dollars just by creating Star Wars movies. Since then, a lot of video game companies create games based on the popular movie.
LEGO is another franchise that has enjoyed millions of sales. LEGO is sort of a builder’s toy in that you can basically create a lot of things based on the LEGO kit you’ve bought.
What happens when you marry both of the huge franchises? An epic game like no other!
Today, we are going to talk about the Lego Star Wars 3: The Clone Wars game for the Nintendo Wii.
The game’s plot is much the same as the Star Wars: Clone Wars animated series that you see on the TV.
The Lego Star Wars 3: The Clone Wars has been vastly improved from the gaming standpoint because the graphics engine has now been upgraded. The lighting and the graphics are superb as well; really a far cry from its predecessors.
As for the gameplay, it is pretty much the same as the previous iterations of the Star Wars LEGO games. The game supports a maximum of two players and each of them can switch depending on the situation. Both players can solve puzzles, fight enemies, and so much more. Be sure to switch accordingly so that you can progress through the levels.
There are a few mechanics that are added to the game as well. One of these mechanics is the so-called scene swap which allows players to switch between different teams or factions that are situated in different locations to complete multi-part mission objectives and boss battles.
The Lego Star Wars 3: The Clone Wars is quite an expansive game in that there is a total of 115 characters. Not all of them are playable, of course, but most of the characters that you see on the animated series will be present in the game.
There is a portable version that can be played on the Nintendo DS and there is also a Nintendo Wii version (console version). There are marked differences between the two because two.
The portable version only has a total of 77 characters, while the Nintendo Wii version has, as previously mentioned,115 total characters. Furthermore, the portable version has unlockable mini-games and the console version does not have it.
The hangar, which is present in the console version, is not available on the portable version. So, which is better? I would have to say the console version as it has far more improved graphics compared to the portable version. But hey, it is still a Star Wars game, might as well enjoy both!
This game has been highly acclaimed probably because of its semblance to both huge franchises, LEGO and Star Wars.
If you have a Nintendo Wii and you’re a true Star Wars fan, better try the Lego Star Wars 3: The Clone Wars game. May the force be with you!
