    Product was well packaged and not broken/open. Game installed without any technical problems (update downloaded automatically). Kids love the game, however, is a game for the whole family. No need to have played previous Lego games to play this one. I have it connected to a home theater and it sounds great!!!! I also have it con a single LED TV with a 720 resolution and it looks amazing!!! On the not-so-good side: Like previous LEGO games on the WiiU console, this one sometimes crashes/freezes and information for that part of the game can be lost. But this had happen to all the LEGO games I have purchased for the WiiU console (Lego Batman 1-2-3, Lego Marvel, etc). Furthermore, there are reviews of other people informing the same situation. Apparently is not a console issue, is the game's design because it happens with almost every LEGO game on the WiiU. In addition, there are people informing the same issue on other gaming consoles as well. This is the reason I cannot give it a 5-Star rating. I will recommend this game for kids and family....

    I bought Lego Star Wars The Force Awakens because my little guy had so much fun with other Lego Wii/Wiiu games, and this game certainly didn't disappoint! It does seem a little more difficult than other Lego games played in the past, at least in some areas (though my kids that play this game are ages 6 and 9), and like other Lego games, if you, as a parent aren't familiar with the format, it will not be easy to jump in where they are having difficulty (though my kids more than happily tell me which character to play and which buttons to press). We did have an initial problem with this game that preventing my kids from getting more than five minutes in... the game would lock up at the same point every time. I think it was related to clicking on the clicking x on the red brick rather than hovering over it. Once we read about that online, the game played pretty much flawlessly.

    This game is pretty much in line with the rest of the Lego games. Most of them are good, though the Star Wars and Super Hero ones are my kids' favorites. This game goes along the same lines as the rest--play through the newest Star Wars movie in a lego version---break stuff and collect money, build stuff to solve puzzles, weld the force (and a lightsaber or two) and open up the game world! If your kids liked the other Lego Star Wars games they're bound to like this one too! The interesting (and better) mechanic in the Wii U version is that one person can play on the controller screen while another one uses the TV---no split screen like the playstation or Xbox utilize!

    For anyone that's played a Lego title on Wii U, this game is fairly typical - which makes it a lot of fun! Following many of the Star Wars story lines (not just The Force Awakens, although that's the primary one), the gameplay involves fighting, building, destroying and solving problems. The humor (as always) is great for kids and grown ups alike. My daughter and I have a lot of fun playing, and we're constantly laughing at the outright and sometimes subtle jokes. This game looks and plays great - Highly recommend!

    LEGO Star Wars The Force Awakens is my first Lego game and it's a blast to play on Nintendo Wii U. LEGO Star Wars The Force Awakens pulls from the wider Star Wars universe and should be a fun game for both fans and non-fans of the series to play. Graphics look great on the Wii U and there is a lot of varied fun game play including block smashing, LEGO brick smashing and rebuilding with multiple build options, puzzle solving, combat and the chance to fly The Millennium Falcon, TIE fighters and do battle with Imperial AT-AT Walkers.

    I want to preface this review by saying I absolutely love my Wii U, and games that are specifically made for it run perfectly. This game, however is not the next gen version of the game. The Wii U version appears to be a port of the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions which causes it to look very dated and has an extremely low frame rate. I went back to the store and exchanged this version for the Xbox One version which runs and looks stunning. If you have another platform to purchase this game on I would strongly recommend it.

    There are so many great new features of this Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens. From the character team-up feature, to theTime Crisis-style shootout play mechanism and dog-fighting sequences, every level is inventive and feels fresh. One of the best new bits is the multi-build, where characters have to assemble the same pieces into multiple different configurations in order to solve a puzzle. Even if you've played all of the Lego games previous to this one--and I have--this one feels like a brand-new experience.

    It seems that Lego can really do no wrong publishing games (and movies). This is the latest in several fun Lego Wii U games that my family added to our collection, and like the others, the humor and game play are awesome. I read the reviews before buying and the average was 4.7 (out of 5) approval. Well deserved. Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens closely follows the action & characters of the movie, but with a lot more tongue-in-cheek humor and great gameplay. Highly recommended!

    The lego games are notorious for their humor, and this game is no different. The humor is great. The puzzles, while not terribly challenging, are still very fun. The fully voiced dialog really makes it feel like you are playing through the force awakens movie. And there are so do many collectibles and random things to do. Their is a ton of replayability in this game. The new space combat missions are fantastic. And most important of all, the game is just simply fun

    With all the games out today, it's hard to find a suitable game for kids these days, although not too hard on the Wii U. This is the perfect game to spend time with your kiddos and just how fun. It's not terribly hard, but it does offer a degree of challenge, thus keeping the kids entertained. Wether you're a fan of the Lego movie or Star Wars movie, this is a must have for kids 12 and under.

    If you have kids this is a great game to have for local co-op play. We love star wars in my home and I have enjoyed the previous star wars Lego games. I've heard this game has annoying glitches but I haven't seen them yet. Lego avengers on the Wii U had some freezing and game progress glitches but so far haven't experienced that with this game.

    Put Star Wars and Lego together and you have a magical combination! The kids absolutely love this game. As an adult, I absolutely love it as well. The engagement is easy as the action is awesome. Need a way to get your kids to do their chores or study harder? Tell them you will reward them well with this if they do! Great game!

    I enjoy most of the Lego games, particularly because I can play with my son. The Force Awakens is probably the best one yet as it faithfully recreates the thrill of the movie, and even expands on the story a little. But most of all, the humor and moderately challenging puzzles provide engaging entertainment for hours.

    Bought this as a Christmas present for my daughter, who is a big Star Wars fan. She loves it and plays it constantly. I like the 2 Player Co-Op mode that allows me or her little sister to jump in and out of the game at any point. The graphics are good and the humor is top notch. Lots of fun and a good buy.

    I admit to playing many of the LEGO games, and this one keeps on in the tradition of humorous, engaging games with a whole lot of content. There are numerous side stories to pursue, and the graphics and game play are excellent. You will have hours of fun, especially if you enjoy the Star Wars movies.

    I have two girls that love playing this game. It's perfect for them as you can never really "die." You just start right back up where you left off. The gameplay also makes them think about how to solve problems in order to move on. It gets a little predictable at time, but a good game overall for kids.

    The Lego game followed some of the same format as recent Lego games, but with some new features like multi builds and battles which made it a new experience. The movie story line is followed, but with the added "Lego" humor. I definitely recommend for anyone who is a fan of Legos or Star Wars.

    What more can I say? Bought it for my niece who loves LEGOs (as much as I do) and whom I took to go watch The Force Awakens so when she asked for the game I jumped all over it. Happy with purchase because it has co-op and utilizes the Wii U Gamepad pretty good to achieve this.

    Wow! I haven't finished the game yet but the first chapter (Return of the Jedi!!) was a nice surprise :) so awesome! It lets you get used to the new mechanics which includes Gears of War/Uncharted type shoot & cover controls. Really look forward to finishing the rest!
