    The thing with Star Wars Demolition is that you have to be patient. Even Master Yoda would advise patience in this instance.
  2. What do you get when you cross Activision's "Vigilante 8: Second Offense" with the greatness of Star Wars? Star Wars Demolition! And I mean this literally.
  3. It's always nice to see a license stretch its wings succesfully.
  4. One of the nice things about Star Wars Demolition, at least for those of us who don't take the Jedi religion seriously, is that the game is pure action, void of any of that Star Wars cheesiness and horribly lame dialog.

    Despite all my gripes about the visual and gameplay flaws, I actually enjoyed playing the game... in small amounts of time.
  6. SWD might seem like some half-baked attempt to cash in on the Star Wars license, though it's actually a competently executed game.
  7. Blowing stuff up in Demolition is definitely fun in all its Star Wars glory, but the more you play, the more you'll notice the imbalance in gameplay.
  8. If you ask me, LucasArt and Luxoflux pumped as much out of the Sega Dreamcast in terms of graphics and just gave up on the rest. I say again, strictly a rental.
  9. The tight handling we grew accustomed to in Vigilante 8 is nowhere to be found. Instead of having massive tires to keep you on the road, you have to deal with unruly floating vehicles that glide all over the place; turning and weaving in and out of tight spaces can prove difficult.
  10. I've never been a fan of vehicular combat titles, and this game hasn't changed my mind.
  11. It's worth a few good times for the level complexity, the multi-player fun, and for the Star Wars Connection.

    Vacuous pap...It's not one of the worst travesties to ever soil a console, but merely a very average shooter that shouldn't have had the Star Wars license put anywhere near it.
  13. Contains fleeting moments of fun, but the weak control of the game makes playing it more of a chore than anything.
  14. A hollow "V8" clone with none of that game's charm, and a lame drizzling of "Star Wars" atmosphere -- just enough to justify putting the name on the box cover.
