  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. A good game based on a movie. It's no Riddick but it certainly entertains and is designed for fans of the film.

    Never before has the Jedi experience been this visceral and accessible at the same time, and Revenge of the Sith has something for hardcore fans and curious onlookers alike. The Force is strong with this one.

    Smooth animation, a fantastic soundtrack and plenty of variety in the use of combat and force powers make this a game that's engaging and fun to play through.
  5. Like the movie itself, the game's surprisingly good and full of decent action as you use Jedi skills in a barrage of lightsaber battles to win one for good or evil.
  6. 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.
  7. The amount of superbly crafted unlockables and wonderfully chilling moments is almost enough to make you forget about the numerous technical ailments. Regardless if it is a slightly misshapen circle, it is nonetheless, a complete one.

    If you want an action-packed ride that finally allows you to cut loose as Darth Vader, then you've come to the right galaxy. [July 2005, p.84]
  9. Coming home and reliving the incredibly cool persona of a badass Jedi Knight is definitely something fans will get behind. That said, the game is repetitive, extremely short (maybe 6 hours to complete the campaign) and is very straightforward in its approach.
  10. If the game was a little bit longer (it takes less than ten hours to beat), had less repetition, and the controls were just slightly more refined, this game would have been a whole lot better.
  11. 75
    The final singleplayer bonus mission that you unlock is actually quite rewarding for fans of the older movies.
  12. It's another film license gone to waste.
  13. It's not as deep as say "Ninja Gaiden" but it is good old fashion fun that deserves your attention. Be warned it contains MAJOR spoilers so you might want to wait... or if you're like me and can't then by all means play this thing to death.

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. Full Review »

    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,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.
