  1. Dreamcast HQ
    But beware, you'll need a little time to learn the controls.
  2. Antagonist
    The best straight-action title on the Dreamcast, and by far the most brilliant Episode I related video game ever produced.
  3. The control in Jedi Power Battles is fantastic.
  4. Game Fan
    Still missing that fun factor and variety that has elevated the better known beat 'em ups of the past.
  5. Daily Radar
    The once elegant and powerful weapon of the Jedi has been reduced to a crude chopping device that will kill a given enemy in five or six hits.
  6. 100
    Smoother, faster animation (the game runs at 60 frames per second) and awesome lighting effects dominate the game's look, while transparency filters, water effects, and background movements round out the spectacular visuals.
  7. 90
    JPB has less extremely frustrating platform-hopping than the original, but an important part of the newest incarnation still involves pinpoint leaping that occasionally verges on maddening.

    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.
