    With controls that improve on the PSX version, tight graphics, more than ten levels, and plenty of lightsaber action, Jedi Power Battles has achieved Jedi Master status.
  2. It has its glorious moments and it has its "what the hell were they thinking" moments.
  3. 68
    Despite a boastful collection of Extra characters, modes, and secrets, the biggest element of them all: a great sense of fun, is just a bit on the low side.

    A flawed game, but much better than the PSX version, and even with it's problems, anyone who loves Star Wars or action games will enjoy it.
  5. Spank!

    The gaming equivalent of a vapid summer blockbuster: shallow, but fun while it lasts and a lot more enjoyable if you experience it with a friend.
  6. Those looking for more complexity in their action games, though, will definitely want to look elsewhere.
  7. Slightly higher-than-average entertainment on Dreamcast, but only as high as it has to be and not an inch higher in quality or creativity.

    The game has great effects with smooth animation, but can get very fustrating when you're stuck as it is a hard game.

    It follows the movie very well and not many movie games do.
