My children received several DS Lite games this Christmas. My son received a nintendo game reading this post about stella glow characters and the game Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy. My 13 year old daughter received the new Bleach game and my 11 year old daughter received a Pokémon game.
The one I found most fun is; Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy Nintendo DS Lite game. As you progress through the game you game characters which you will need to switch to in the middle of a level to accomplish certain tasks. So far we have Princess Leah, Luke Skywalker, Obi Wan, R2D2, C3PO, Chewbacca and a Storm Trooper. Each one of these characters has different abilities.
A few examples:
Obi Wan has the force and with this he can open or use certain items in the game that Luke or Leah cannot touch.
The Storm Trooper has the ability to open certain doors.
R2D2 and C3PO use their tech abilities to open other doors or to use certain types of electronic items.
Of course these are not the only abilities these characters possess, but these are some of the first you will encounter.
During the game you also have the option to gather coins and kit parts. The coins of course are used to purchase items that you need and kit parts (different sizes) give you more points and allow you to build Lego kits, such as vehicles.
I am not a big DS Lite gamer, but this game has been quite fun. Sometimes my kids laugh at me because I am begging for help; especially when I keep falling. Although, for the most part, I have enjoyed this game; there is one downfall that seemed to jump out at me from the start. When you attempt to move your character, the character does not move straight. You may think you are going forward and the character goes sideways. If you are walking on a bridge or some other narrow item within the game, you fall off quite easily. If the makers of this game would just make the maneuvering a bit easier, this game would be so much better.
I have read other reviews that mention quite a few glitches. To be honest, my children don’t even notice these said glitches. All they are concerned about it whether or not the game is fun and playable. Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy Nintendo DS Lite game has been fun for all in our family and to me, which speak volumes.
