You don't have to be a Star Wars fan to enjoy playing it. There is a lot of smashing and violence in the game, albeit just to Lego toys. It is fun to play as different characters and you can have a multi-player game with your friends helping you defeat the Dark Side! The only drawback is that it isn't very clear where to go in some areas and you spend a lot of time stuck in places. However, this is a good game for the whole family.
