    Whether it comes on the Xbox or PlayStation, just avoid the game and try something that looks better, plays better and sounds better. Try "Lego Star Wars."
  2. Since the saber-play is occasionally exciting, and that those of you who desperately want something that reminds you of the film might be prepared to put up with this in spite of its flaws. Me? I thought this was crap.
  3. It's fun to run around the galaxy as a saber-flinging Jedi, cutting down droids by the score. But after a few minutes there's no point. It's too easy and extremely shallow when compared to other adventure games.
  4. It's a game that makes you desperately want to feel like a Jedi, arcing your lightsaber across the screen, ducking under attacks, parrying counters and going in for the kill, but the subtlety just isn't there. [July 2005, p.94]
  5. 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 only gaming use I can find for this would be to in a museum display for the worst use of video game licenses, or as a cautionary tale about the woes of rushing a product to market.
  7. The only reason I could find for a person to finish this game would be if it was their first exposure to the Revenge of the Sith story.
  8. For the love of Lucas, buy Lego Star Wars instead.

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.
