    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.
  2. The best straight-action title on the Dreamcast, and by far the most brilliant Episode I related video game ever produced.
  3. 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.
  4. It has its glorious moments and it has its "what the hell were they thinking" moments.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Those looking for more complexity in their action games, though, will definitely want to look elsewhere.
