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
Excerpt: De fleste Star Wars spil lider lidt under samme forbandelse som Star Trek spil – de har nemlig en slem tendens til at være middelmådige. Dog er Star Wars endelig kommet ud af starthullerne og der er da også udkommet nogle ganske glimrende spil baseret på de klassiske film, men Star Wars Episode III beviser at træerne endnu ikke er vokset ind i himlen.
Conclusion: Skön Star Wars-känsla, snygga filmsekvensen och underbar musik gör att Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith blir ungefär vad jag hade förväntat mig. Om man då är en riktig Star Wars-fanatiker (a.k.a nörd) som yours truly så går det att bortse från halvdan grafik och den totala avsaknaden av spelmässigt djup. Cirkeln är sluten.
