    Solid stuff all around, but we'd easily take the DS version if faced with the choice.

    Beautifully drawn and animated, not to mention surprisingly involving, Revenge of the Sith should please any action gamer, Star Wars fan or not.
  3. 60
    Surprising in its quality, and fans should find this portable adventure to be the perfection companion to their Game Boy Advances as they sit in line waiting for the first showing's of the saga's epic conclusion.

    The Game Boy can be a surprisingly capable platform, but Revenge of the Sith just isn't ambitious enough to become a master in its class.
  5. Most people will tell you to buy the DS version over the GBA version. I beg to differ. The GBA version is, in my opinion, fully equal to the DS version if not superior because you can play it on the big screen with the Game Boy Player, it has co-op multiplayer, it is cheaper, and, besides the space combat, it works the same as the DS version.
  6. Not a ton of depth, and it's fairly short in single player, but as a whole it's a good addtion to your DS library.
  7. Hardly a "must own" game, but it's surprisingly good stuff considering it's based on a big-budget movie.
  8. Revenge of the Sith may not go down as an all-time classic, but the innovative gameplay, excellent sound effects, and smooth graphics make it an enjoyable video game foray into the world of Star Wars.

    Quotation forthcoming. [July 2005]
  10. The game's biggest drawback is that it doesn't take much time to complete--perhaps two hours total for both characters.
  11. Nintendo Power

    The best portable game in the franchise to date (it annihilates "LEGO Star Wars" for the GBA). Impressive. Most impressive. [July 2005, p.98]
  12. The GBA just isn't made to support this much combat variety at the kind of pace Revenge of the Sith requires you to act.
  13. Cheat Code Central
    80
    The level designs are bland, as is the theme music which is recreated digitally with the passion and depth of a cell phone ring tone.

The game reminded me of the movie, the sprites looked well done and the combat was very fun and easy to use. Though there were some problems. The game's music was somewhat lacking, the game was way too short and the bosses were way too easy (Only hard boss was the final boss). The worst part about the game was it was too repetitive. Since you have a lack of invincibility frames and you have to fight the same enemies all the time, it can be somewhat boring. Full Review »

Much to my surprise, the game was actually not as bad as I could have imagined. I actually really did enjoy playing it. Of course the characters barely looked like their movie-counterparts, but aside from that the gameplay was challenging enough despite being a little repetitive at times. It does accomplish what it intended to do, I mean it's far from broken or impossible, while being moderately challenging and it doesn't deviate from the source material. I give the developers credit for accomplishing what they could given how little time they probably had. This is hardly the worst movie-game ever, and in reality probably one of the best I've ever played. I would definitely give it a low 7 something. Full Review »

The graphics weren't good but not bad either, although the cartoony faces where badly drawn. The music was very low quality and didn't resemble the original a lot. A lot of things didn't go according to the original plot either, like anakin fighting mace windu. you could only pick from 2 heroes and there wasn't much customization either. Last but not least the lightsaber battles were very badly drawn. didn't look good and had nothing of the epic feel a lightsaber battle should have. very mediocre game. Full Review »
