    For as much as I complain, I'll still play it all the way through a few times to get all the achievements, but I'll whine and kick like a baby the whole time.

    Star Wars: Battle for Hoth isn't going to blast its way to the top of most tower defense fan's lists, but it's still a great game and well worth checking out for devotees of the Force.

    This Star Wars tower defense game makes adequate use of a setting that had great potential.

    There are certainly superior tower defense games for the iPhone. And in the end, that's what really matters here.

    The Battle for Hoth is certainly one of the best Star Wars games on the App Store. However, with poor graphics and the unjustified absence of John Williams' traditional scores, THQ Wireless has failed again in the attempt to offer a great Star Wars experience to iPhone users.

    Star Wars fans will drop the cash on it regardless, but there's enough here to satisfy the urges of serious tower defence players too.

    Celebrating the 30th anniversary of The Empire Strikes back, we get another Star Wars game. This time as a Tower Defense game for the iPhone and iPod touch. Fiddly controls and blurry graphics provides an experience not unlike Fieldsrunners. But that game came out two years ago and a lot has happened since. Not and awful game, but not a classic either.

    Poor design prevents the cool idea that is Star Wars: Battle for Hoth from becoming a great tower defence game.

    For a big Star Wars fan who also likes Tower Defence games it's still a good bet that you'll get some enjoyment out of this game, but I couldn't help feeling that there's a better use for the licence than this.

    Half-hearted level design and a mediocre use of a great license.

    There are too many well made tower defence games on the App Store featuring the most important thing, gameplay, for Battle for Hoth to be even close to worth getting. If you are a fan of Star Wars try the lite version. If you are a fan of strategic tower defence games don't try the lite version.
