  1. Ultimately, ROTS is not out-and-out dreadful but it is offensively average.
  2. 45
    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."
  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.

    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. A series of linear lightsaber swing-a-thons tied together by badly-edited clips from a yet-to-be-released movie and recycled John Williams music (with horrendous voice-acting to boot), Revenge of the Sith is the worst SW game since 1999's "The Phantom Menace" (ouch).

    Quite simply, Revenge… 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]

I give it an 8 since it was a pain in the bum when I was a kiddo to play it, dying all the time but for sure a game featring a nice set of skills and characters, expanding the story. And thanks Jeezy it is in the PSN Store to buy. Full Review »

    Star Wars Ep. 3 in my options was now very good. I never saved my game and the textures looked terrible. (Yes I do realise it's a PS2 game.)Star Wars Ep. 3 in my options was now very good. I never saved my game and the textures looked terrible. (Yes I do realise it's a PS2 game.) The gameplay felt stale after a while and the gameplay and mechanics never felt real or any good. But what do you expect from a game that was made from a moive.

    It's alright. Not the best game I ever played but somewhere in the middle.
