The game has a unique quality in that it featured archive footage from the film but the game was released before the film. Majority of the footage shown in the game has also been edited out in the film. See more »
Not bad , but if you really want to experience anakins switch to the darkside, stick to the movie
Considering how plot driven and epic revenge of the sith was, you would think that the spin off game would be something a little more than just a straight forward hack and slash em up, but thats just what it is- a straight forward hack and slash em up.
Its not a bad game , but its blandly linear level design and button bashing gameplay ensure that its not a great one- if your not an undemanding star wars fan , then you'll find this pretty average .
There are attempts to add depth to the game with the bonus missions and a fun two player mode , but ultimately what it all boils down to is hacking and slashing droids, walking a bit and hacking and slashing droids some more.Its Golden axe with light sabers if you will.
Presentation wise the game is great, the film copies the look of the film well . It copies the sounds brilliantly too- not just the iconic light saber noises among others but john williams masterful score thats so adventurous and epic that it makes the game seem ten times better than it actually is .
Not bad but if you really want to experience anakins switch to the darkside, stick to the movie.
