LucasArts LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga
- Same flavour of Lego-shaped Star Wars fun, Wii Remote lightsaber controls are interesting
- Not a whole lot has changed, lightsaber controls are only fun for a short while
LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga is a fun game to play and suitable for the casual gamer wanting to play it on Wii. However, if you've played the first two you might want to reconsider buying the game as it hasn't changed much.
Price$ 89.95 (AUD)
We've always had a soft spot in our heart for the Lego Star Wars games. The games were a great example of what you can do with a licence if you approach it the right way and it was ridiculously charming, what with its cute graphics and great sense of humour.
Much like with the Star Wars movies, LucasArts has seen fit to collect the first two Lego Star Wars game into an ultimate collection for the Wii. And the best part: it has Wii Remote lightsaber action!
Okay, so it's not the Jedi-like cutting limbs off of Stormtroopers control scheme that everyone has wanted since the Wii was first announced, but the motion-sensing lightsaber moves are fun...for about five minutes. As with most Wii games where you have to move the Remote to attack, it gets a little tiresome. The cool part is that the little speaker emits the appropriate lightsaber sounds, which only gets us more excited for the possibility of a proper Star Wars game with lightsaber controls built around the Wii Remote.
Aside from that, the game is pretty much the same as the others. You manoeuvre blocky Star Wars heroes through stages modelled after the movies, blast enemies and collect items. The controls are solid, the action is fun and the graphics are actually decent on the Wii. It should find a nice home on the casual-gamer friendly Wii, though anyone who's already played the first two might want to think hard before buying it, as the game hasn't changed much. Still, it's a fun title and one worth getting for the little Star Wars fanatic in your life.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.
The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.
My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
