  1. While the game is pretty fun, it can become very frustrating. At times, it seems your character doesn’t want to swing his light saber in a certain direction, or misses a jump you know that you hit, or just hits something in the 3D level that didn’t look like a mine.
  2. 65
    It's a somewhat enjoyable romp, though...it's just not a very "clean" Star Wars title.
  3. While it has a few frustrating problems, Attack of the Clones is just about as good as a Star Wars game can get on the GBA.
  4. 59
    The numerous lackluster features that run rampant in Attack of the Clones prove that it's just a reckless padewan with limited knowledge of the Force.
  5. The graphics and music are out of this world, but the play control can get as clunky as a malfunctioning droid. [July 2002, p.150]
  6. Jar-Jar Binks and the Gungans may have been terrible for the movie franchise but Clones' release on the GBA is absolutely abysmal.
  7. The game itself, largely due to control issues, is very, very bad.
  8. 30
    One of the most maddening problems is that each time you die (which happens a lot), you respawn at the beginning of the level. There is no continue option, and you can’t skip the-story-so-far screens.
  9. It's one of the worst games I've ever played. [July 2002, p.128]
  10. Overall, we'd prefer death to torture, and perhaps both to an extended session playing this game. [Winter 2002, p.47]
  11. Feels as if the people making it hated Star Wars, because honestly, it would be hard to make something much worse. [Aug 2002, p.76]
  12. A pile of Dooku... In total, Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Mace Windu will slog through eight tedious lightsaber fights and three horribly pixilated driving sequences while trying to save the galaxy from a sinister alliance.
  13. There is nothing redeeming about this game. The quality control of Star Wars titles is terrible nowadays, and Star Wars: Episode II: Attack of the Clones is simply a testament to this.
  14. The graphics have a certain flair to them, the likes of which you'd see oozing out of a defective bar toilet. [July 2002, p.92]

    If critics did a list of the top 10 worst games of all time, possibly this one will be in it and it will be number one. I never played such a piece of trash like this, the controls, no save support, the most abominable and ugliest graphics to date, i mean, who will give this game a perfect score or a positive score to this thing ( yes, thing because it is not even a game ). This game will be remembered not because it's a GBA game, it's because its pure garbage. Full Review »
