  1. For the first time in my life, I was completely engrossed in a Star Wars game.
  2. It sacrifices glamour and elaborate play mechanics to be what it is supposed to be: Fun.

    Pure action and tons of fun. [Dec 2002, p.212]
  4. Although TCW has its weaknesses, its biggest strength is that it simulates some extremely intense and action-packed Star Wars battles.
  5. Purely an unadulterated shooter that shouldn’t be thought of as anything more.
  6. A fun and frantic action game that lacks polish. If you’re a Star Wars fan and/or enjoy blowing stuff up, it’s well worth your attention.
  7. Technically, the game is shoddy. While most of the vehicle models are good, the same cannot be said about the rest of the graphics. The environments are simple and uninteresting, draw distance on some levels is short and the texture quality is below average.

    This game out of all the Star Wars games this one must be the best one. That might be because I am a Star Wars fan. But what do I know I have This game out of all the Star Wars games this one must be the best one. That might be because I am a Star Wars fan. But what do I know I have only played four of the Star Wars games including the Clone Wars. I have three problems with the game you get to duel with Dooku , the game ends after you defeat the Dark Reaper,and what happens to Dooku. But will have to wait until Episode 3 comes out. Expand

    2021 Review
    So I've beaten this game MULTIPLE times. Idk how many hours I threw into this as a kid but this game speaks to me even today as an adult and I'm gonna look at this objectively without nostalgia goggles. Star Wars the Clone Wars, is like the cover looks- a tank based 3rd person shooter. And if you like Star Wars or if you like tank based combat you should get this game and play it. The game really gets the on ground heavy artillery feel of the Clone Wars while also spicing each mission up with different objectives and different tanks and weaponry throughout the campaign. The story is meh, but the actually game itself is well developed. Destroying droids is fun! You pilot gunships, you steal separatist tanks and sneak into facilities, you fight huge bosses that intimidate me to this day. All while the backing epic soundtrack of clone wars motivates you through battle after battle. Escort missions, to search and destroy, to timed attrition. BUT, the MAIN EVENT in my opinion is the multiplayer. its 4 player excitement. Unlocking the maps and game modes in single player allows for many MANY hours of fun in the multiplayer. There is a wave based survival where up to four of you fend off increasing difficult and hilariously overpowered waves. There is dueling which is like deathmatch. Zone mode (king of the hill), and my favorite Conquest. Which you capture outposts around the map and they produce AI tanks to fight for you. So it could be a 2vs2 match where you and your teammate have to capture outposts to win a huge battle. Is this game for everyone? Ya know... I feel like the survival wave mode ANYONE can jump in an have a good time. But true star wars fans or Action/Shooter fans will find plenty to enjoy with the game. If you don't have people to play with the single player can still add challenge on hard mode and the survival wave mode is fun too even if by yourself. Its worth a play at the very least.

    There isn't any such thing as a perfect game. Few games come pretty close to perfection. This game isn't anything perfect. And for There isn't any such thing as a perfect game. Few games come pretty close to perfection. This game isn't anything perfect. And for some of you out there it may be pretty bad. The graphics are poor, but where the graphics fail, the gameplay suceeds. This game may not be for everyone. It is fun and enjoyable. The sound and muscial score are straight from Clone Wars. If your a Clone Wars fan then you need to get this game. The single player mode is ok and the multiplayer is exciting. The gameplay wears off after a while. I would purchase this title unless you find it at a discounted rate. Expand
