    While not perfect and not compelling in some areas, Star Wars: Trench Run brings the goods like no other iPhone app does. It's fun, it's quick and it's cheap.

    The licence promises so much but sadly Star Wars: Trench Run ends up clumsy, value-starved interpretation of one of cinema's most iconic scenes.

    Star Wars: Trench Run offers 30 minutes of great X-Wing flying and Death Star destruction. But then it's over. THQ thinks the replay comes from extra difficulty levels or through playing areas again in arcade mode, but that's just not enough, especially when compared to other iPhone games with $4.99 price tags.

    A no-brainer for Star Wars nuts, but that blink-of-an-eye game length is a serious area of concern.

    Overall, the game feels like a series of mediocre mini-games tied together by scenes from the original movie.

    To me this is a re-imagining of the arcade classic… and for that it does a great job, perfectly replicating the sound and action of that closing act. However, with it's relatively high price point, and when compared to other fly and gun games like Above and Beyond and Top Gun, it doesn't really stand up from a value and content standpoint.

    Star Wars: Trench Run gets the vibe right, but the overly simplistic and repetitive gameplay is not the most compelling.
