A Star Wars game for the Nintendo 64, in fact the first.
29 April 2012 | by See all my reviews

This was a game I rented multiple times back in the day, as it was pretty fun and quite frankly there were not all that many fun games for the Nintendo 64. It was this one and Turok, both rather fun games and both had a flaw to them that made them less than ideal. Extreme difficulty. Well to be fair, a person can easily win this game on the lowest difficulty selection. The problem? Well, you do not get much of an ending on this setting. "No problem," You are probably thinking to yourself, "I won the game easily enough on the easy level, I can probably handle the next one up". Well I do not know about anyone else, but neither my friend or me could handle it on the next difficulty level and I applaud anyone else who could. My friend could not make it past the first level, I got to the boss in the ice cavern stage where the boss took me out in like two shots and I pretty much sat there with my jaw opening wondering how in the world can anyone survive the game on such a insane degree of difficulty and there was at least one more degree of difficulty beyond the one up from easy, there may of been two! Still, it is a fun game on the easy mode as you play as some made up character that is buddies with Han Solo so unfortunately no light saber here. Still, some of the levels are a blast to play (unless on the aforementioned higher difficulty). I especially enjoyed the level where you were on the desert planet and you could see enemies far off and I used to blast them before they even saw me coming. I also liked the level where you had to fight that strange creature that was underwater in a sewer like stage. Of course, I made it all the way through, but I have no idea if Dash survived, because you had to be the best of the best to see beyond the shabby ending you get on the easiest section. I guess George Lucas wanted you to earn it!
