    If you don't mind missing out on cooperative play, and if the 3D dogfight addition appeals to you, it's certainly worth the extra ten bucks.
  2. The best portable game in the franchise to date (it annihilates "LEGO Star Wars" for the GBA). Impressive. Most impressive. [July 2005, p.98]
  3. The aerial combat missions are a joy to see and almost steal the show, promising greater things to come (taking down AT-ATs in snow speeders I hope!) particularly when you can go head to head against your mates.
  4. The only big problems with the game itself are that it isn't all that long, and it doesn't take advantage of the dual screens.
  5. The balance of enemies is deftly tuned to not hold you in one place for too long. [June 2005, p.86]
  6. The 3D levels and the multiplayer mode that's built around them are more than good enough to justify the 10 extra dollars that the DS game costs.
  7. The only good that can come from this game is sending it as a prank gift to Jake Lloyd with a note reading "You aren't the only one who ruined Star Wars." [July 2005, p.126]

    The graphics are great, the multiplayer rules and the characters are unstoppable! Well I can give you a couple of words: amazing and it's a gift for your DS. Expand

    About halfway through I started slaughtering like a master. The game and I were almost as one. I could do everything I wanted to because I had mastered the controls. The boss battles are freakin' sweet, and the multiplayer is like a free game included. Unlocking all the other ships is a huge challenge, which I'm proud to say I've completed. EGM doesn't know what it's talking about. Expand

    A very, very. very good game. The moves, characters, and voice acting is great and the action is non-stop! There are a couple of glitches however, but nothing that gets in the way. Expand

    Good fun. Multiplayer/bot skirmishes are very nice, single player less so but still good for what it is. It feels like a portable Jedi Knight II.

    The game it's self was a in-depth and mostly accurate, but the graphics were just short of expectation.

    Graphics alright but thats about the only good thing. Boring gameplay and useless controls. Doesn't perform well with the dual screen function. My advice : Don't buy this game!! Expand
