Summary: Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith is a very good game for the short amount of time that it lasts. Anyone who enjoyed Power Battles or who enjoys an all-action hack-n-slash title will enjoy the game and fans of the films will no doubt revel in the excellent atmosphere that it provides along with very good gameplay and a high level of quality in the audio and visual departments.
Excerpt: Fans and gamers can experience the stunning Jedi action of the upcoming movie Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith on May 5, 2005 when LucasArts releases the companion video game in advance of the movie's opening on May 19th.

Excerpt: The game boasts an impressive title screen, and the opening is pretty entertaining, but that’s probably because it’s lifted right from the movie. The game has a number of choppy, cut-off movie sequences that are bits of the movie forced between in-game fighting action. At the very least, it manages to be consistent in that area.
Excerpt: Did you know LucasArts initially offered the video game adaptation of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith to BioWare? They declined, busy at work on Jade Empire, so LucasArts turned to The Collective. The Collective is probably best known for their sleeper hit Buffy the Vampire Slayer. They’ve also collaborated with LucasArts in the past on both Wrath Unleashed and Indiana Jones and the Emperor’s Tomb.
Excerpt: Cool : Revenge of the Sith offers a single-player campaign in which you alternate between Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi as you progress through 16 levels inspired by the film. Cutscenes featuring footage from the movie help set up each of the levels and ensuing lightsaber duels. Did you know LucasArts initially offered the video game adaptation of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith to BioWare?
Conclusion: After you’ve soldiered through the single-player missions and witnessed the turn to the dark side, there’s a bit more added onto the end of the game to have a tinker with. There are a few bonus missions that let you play as other characters from the film (General Grievous, his bodyguards, Yoda..), as well as a last mission as Darth Vader on the Death Star.
Pros: You can play as a Jedi knight., Some cool moves., Cut-scenes from the film.
Summary: "Graphically the game isn’t bad, but it can’t compete with most of the recent titles like Halo 2 and Pariah or maybe even Lord of the Rings: Return of the King for a closer comparison. The game mimics the film sets well though, and does contain a number of enemies who you won’t see in the film and have been created just for the game.
Pros: 10 Minutes of film Footage, Good music, First hour is fun
