  1. The selection of vehicles, structured missions objectives, and rewarding bonus system will make this a favorite for anyone who plays it.
  2. Convincing is a good word for The Clone Wars, which ultimately succeeds at making you feel like you're on the front lines of a big Star Wars ground battle.
  3. The biggest disappointment is the terrible multiplayer options in the game.
  4. Not even a framey and slightly-buggy engine (collision detection issues galore!) can prevent this title from being a must-own recommendation for Star Wars buffs.

    The lightsaber challenges are very much on the weaker side of the force, and should have either been worked on longer or left out entirely. [Feb 2003, p.32]
  6. The best way to describe Clone Wars’s gameplay is by calling it "Jedi Starfighter" PLUS... Simply an average game.
  7. Feels a little recycled with a brand new name. Not bad, but could have been better.

    Sounds disastrous, right? Well, it mostly is—except for multiplayer, The Clone Wars' only saving grace.
  9. If you're a hardcore Star Wars fan – and only if you're a hardcore Star Wars fan – the story should interest you. But, like the six-to-eight-hour game itself, it's just too short. [Feb 2003, p.102]
  10. As you can probably tell, the main problem with this game is that it’s scrappy and disjointed. The areas that show flair and imagination are cut short by generic and shockingly unoriginal elements that make you cringe and turn away in embarrassment.
