Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith Gameplay Movie 2

  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.

    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.

    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]

It is extremely addictive and really This game was excellent in that you are able to defeat characters from the movies that seem unbeatable. It is extremely addictive and really gives you a sence of being a Jedi searching for power, or trying to save the Republic. The multiplayer version is also the best of any game I have ever seen. Being able to fight as Count Dooku, Yoda, Anikan, Darth Vader, mace Windu, and many others is a real treat that makes this game outstanding. This is the best Lightsaber action video game I have ever seen. Expand

    Very close to the Lord of the rings game in terms of the infrastructure. The good news, you are playing the movie.

    I love star wars, and I have seen pathectic star wars games, but this is the best with KOTOR. Graphics are fabulous, and the game has I love star wars, and I have seen pathectic star wars games, but this is the best with KOTOR. Graphics are fabulous, and the game has captured the movie perfectly, like the duel on Mustafar. Lovely set of como's, but very difficult to pull off, the way you have to press the buttons is difficult, but worth it. Excellent multiplayer, especially when you can play as Darth Vader. Motion capture really makes it stand out in the lightsaber field compared to the likes of KOTOR and Jedi Knight, and it can easily be seen, which makes it feel much more real. Sound is great to. My only bad point is, the voice actor for Anakin sounds wierd when he says stuff like "your power is nothing compared to the dark side". Beware there are preview clips of the movie before and after each misson, so some things will be given away. Small bit to short, but some bits arent easy. IGN is wierd. Overall, superb. Get this game, I think it could appeal to anyone. This really is the ultimate jedi action experience. Expand

    This game BLOWS, BLOWS, BLOWS. Everything IGN said is completely on the ball - and then some. Even the versus stuff is pathetic. if you like This game BLOWS, BLOWS, BLOWS. Everything IGN said is completely on the ball - and then some. Even the versus stuff is pathetic. if you like being hit repeatedly with no way of getting out of attack range, then try playing against the computer with it controlling Greivous. Frustrating beyond belief. Anyone who has played the Jedi Outcast games will be throwing their controllers at the screen - now those games had true "Jedi action." Expand
