Star Wars is Now A Video Game!
17 November 2002 | by (U.S.A) – See all my reviews


One day, Luke Skywalker and his uncle, Uncle Owen, purchased two droids, R2-D2 and C-3PO from some Jawas. Luke discovers that R2-D2 has now disappeared, so he and C-3PO jump in Luke's landspeeder and search for him. Luke finds him in a Jawa Sandcrawler. Watch out for Jawas and evil droids in there! Once found, R2-D2 claims he's the property of General Obi-Wan Kenobi. Who was that? Luke goes to explore many of the dangerous caves on Tatooine. Be on the look out for Womp Rats, slugs, Tusken Raiders, and other creepy, crawly, fuzzy things. In one cave, Luke meets Obi-Wan Kenobi, a former Jedi. He gives Luke a lightsaber that had once belonged to Anakin Skywalker, Luke's father. Obi-Wan sees the message R2-D2 had for him then requested Luke learn the ways of the Force in order to accompany him to Alderaan. The message was from Princess Leia who was in trouble so the plans in R2 must be delivered to Alderaan by Kenobi. Now the party will need a transport to Alderaan. They venture into Mos Eisely and encounter a strange Cantina. Watch out for Stormtroopers and Jawas, not to mention Boba Fett. Luke meets Han Solo, captain of the Millennium Falcon. He and Chewbacca can fly the friends to Alderaan. So, after avoiding Stormtroopers Luke, Han and the friends board the ship and take off. Watch out, for there's an asteroid field along the way. Make sure you collected enough Millennium Falcon tokens in the Tatooine caves before you take off! Once past the asteroids, the Death Star tractor beam pulls you in!

Luke and Han venture off and rescue Princess Leia, now they must escape. They venture through a treacherous trash compactor and must make it back to the Falcon. Obi-Wan encounters his old pupil, Darth Vader, the terror of the universe. Without Kenobi, the crew takes off and Luke and the rebels engage in a space battle with the Death Star. Watch out for TIE Fighters! If you are successful, the galaxy will once again be safe.

A pretty good game! You start out as Luke, then when you find Han at the Cantina, you can play as him then when you rescue Princess Leia in the Death Star, you can play as her. C-3PO, R2-D2 and Obi-Wan Kenobi just stay neutral. I've never made it past the asteroid field! The lightsaber, you'll find, it better at defeating enemies than the blaster. In conclusion, it's a good game! Adventurous! I recommend it!
