Lego Star Wars III features missions and characters from the Clone Wars television series, as well as favorite characters from the original Star Wars saga, in both single-player and multiplayer gameplay modes.[3][4][5] The Mac OS X version of the game has been released by Feral Interactive.[1]

    The second to latest chapter in the award-winning LEGO Star Wars videogame franchise, LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars combines the best elements of all previous LEGO games while adding brand new gameplay to make it the most action-packed LEGO videogame to date.

    “LucasArts continues to set the bar for next-generation family entertainment,” said Darrell Rodriguez, president of LucasArts. “The LEGO Star Wars franchise is a massive hit with fans, bringing in sales of over 20 million units worldwide. We’re thrilled to extend this experience to LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars, delivering the humor and fun players expect from this award winning franchise.”

    “LucasArts is an amazing partner, and working with them on the next iteration of the LEGO Star Wars series continues to be a great experience,” said Tom Stone, director at TT Games. “The team at TT is working hard at making this simply the best LEGO game ever with all new gameplay and features never before seen in a LEGO game.”

    LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars includes all the characters from the first two seasons of the hugely popular animated television series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, as well as some fan-favorite characters from the beloved theatrical Star Wars Saga. The game features brand new battle modes, giving players unique, head-to-head combat and an upgraded level builder, allowing the creation of customized bases and in-game battlefields. Play either as a Jedi or Separatist with all-new character abilities, such as Squad command, Lightsaber slicing, Lightsaber jumps, long distance Jedi attacks and Grapple Tie-Ups, all within a new, easy-to-navigate hub.

    The game has been in development since late 2009 when the second season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars TV series started. The game was covered up and in June 2010 after the second season finale The Lego Group started to work on adding the last part of the second season in and new things such as a new hub and a new way to use the lightsaber. Then in late 2010, LEGO finished the game and started to make promotions for it. On 23 June 2010, LEGO released the first trailer for the game and later in 2011 they released some demos and cutscenes.

    The game has received generally mixed reviews. GameSpot gave 6.5/10 for PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii[13] while 6/10 for Nintendo 3DS.[14] IGN's Anthony Gallegos rated the PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 versions of the game 7.5/10, the Wii version 7/10, and the DS, 3DS, and PSP versions 6.0. He commented on the vast variety in the in-game Hub; "the hub world is open to players to explore, but this time around, Traveller's Tales have really outdone themselves". They further stated "like so much of the LEGO games design, when you combine these two relatively unexciting portions together, something strange happens: It becomes a simple, engaging game".[8] GameTrailers gave the game 6.5/10, and called it "one of the dullest in the entire series", strongly criticizing the game's repetition.[6] As of May 2012, the game has sold over 4 million copies worldwide.
