  1. I enjoyed every minute I was playing Episode III, even when I was dying at the light saber battle with General Grevious or Mace Windu for the 17th time.
  2. 80
    The graphics are crisp and well defined, with everything remaining faithful to the source material. John Williams' scoring is simply some of the best orchestral work ever, and all of the signature Star Wars sound effects remain as amazing and unique as ever.
  3. 75
    The final singleplayer bonus mission that you unlock is actually quite rewarding for fans of the older movies.
  4. 66
    Good as a tool for reliving the movie but not for experiencing it in the first place.
  5. 60
    Revenge of the Sith certainly isn't the disaster the Phantom Menace game is, but it lacks memorable moments, and has a few too many damning flaws to recommend a purchase.
  6. Flawed gameplay that borders on monotonous is this game's menace. While the lightsaber fighting scheme is actually fairly deep, especially when you mix in grapple attacks, force tricks and counterattacks on top of counterattacks, I rarely used most of these goodies.
  7. Quite simply, Revengeā€¦ is the worst kind of Star Wars game - one that looks good enough to appeal to impulsive fans, but ultimately fails to deliver by being a horribly derivative, stale and linear example of the genre it so lazily falls into. [July 2005, p.114]

    The gameplay is fun and it is entertaining, It was fun to play through the movie and go through all these battles. I also loved how they added the extra mission where it was Anakin who beat Obi Wan, That was great. I really enjoyed the game and played it countless times. The difficulty was a bit uneven though making it a bit too tough at times but overall it was great. Expand

    This is not one of the best Star Wars games out there but it is a solid and fun experience, the game is a solid hack and slash button masher, the controls are good but like I said you'll mostly use them for button mashing, the graphics aren't that good but they get the job done, the sound is phenomenal from the good voice acting to the great sound effects and the classic Star Wars tunes, all in all if your looking for a good Star Wars game look no further.

    There are much better star wars games than this one, which is based on a movie, but other games such as Jedi academy is far better than this one so i can't say it's good... Expand
