Too bad Travellers Tales weren't the ones interviewed...Since they're the ones actually making the game....They'd probably stab people if they found out someone knocked a game that's probably not even in Alpha yet.

Three months isn't a lot of time, but I have faith in the LEGO Star Wars guys. If the magazines are still 'underwhelmed' (bear in mind this was the opinion of only one guy) when they get their review copies, then I might start to worry. Mind you, even then I'd put more stock in what other fans think of it than magazine reviewers.

Amen to that! :APPLAUSE:


Hey Phantomfish, great sig and avatar! Dirt Boss rules! :grin:

Back on topic, I think I might be looking forward to the movie game more than the actual movie, for the reason I stated above! And so far, it's looking like the only videogame I'm buying this year!

Meh, don't normally go by any reviews but EGM(they're spot on most of the time), but I'm not sold until I play it. If it ends up going more down the Lego SW road, I'll be happy.

I haven't read the review, and I don't need to read the review to have skepticism about how Activision will pull this game off. The game has enormous potential. Enormous. However, I'm willing to bet they'll dumb down the idea a lot, not explore the depth of the idea, and then throw in some easy gameplay for instant gratification.

The problem is even if they pull off a decent game, it'd still shameful to the potential that the idea has. If this game is nothing short of spectacular, it was a waste of time and money.
