Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi join forces in fierce
battles and heroic lightsabre duels until one's lust for power
and the other's devotion to duty leads to a final confrontation
between good and evil. As Anakin, unleash the power of the
Dark Side in ruthless lightsabre and Force attacks. As Obi-Wan,
struggle to save the galaxy from darkness by focusing the
power of the Light Side into swift and precise lightsabre
attacks and using the Force to control enemy actions...
Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith
gives fans of the movie franchise a sneak preview of the film.
You progress through the levels switching between Anakin and
Obi-Wan as you fight your way through an army of different
droids. Every once in a while you'll be rewarded with a cut
scene from the movie.
completing three or four levels you'll be faced with a different
boss - one of the main villains from the film. These, thankfully,
are almost impossible to beat on your first attempt, but after
a few goes it is very easy to spot your opponent's tactics
and know when to attack and when to guard against their blows.
And once you know when to attack it's not unlike playing Tekken:
If you bash all of the buttons randomly you stand a pretty

game, we are told, follows very closely the plot of the movie.
In fact, if you are a hard-core Star Wars fan, I'd
advise you don't play this game until after you've seen the
final film as it does spoil crucial plot developments.
the movie won't be as monotonous as the game. The
lightsabre duelling gets very dull, very quickly. And, as
this game is almost all lightsabre fights, you may find yourself
wishing for a bit more variety. There is the occasional (not
even slightly challenging) sections where you take control
of large gun cannons. However these are too short and too
easy, and seem to have been tagged on in a last minute effort
to provide some variety. You are not able to change the control
settings for these sections, which is a bit of a pain for
those gamers who are used to setting their controls with the
up and down movements reversed (which, as any real pilot will
tell you, is the proper way controls should be configured).
Williams score is very well used throughout the game (it was
fun, for a soundtrack nut like me, to see how many of the
tracks I noticed) as are authentic sound effects from the
Wars fans will probably lap this up. The lightsabre duels
do look fantastic, it's just that a little more variety would
have helped this become a must own game.
