Final Breakdown


Great, solid gameplay. One gripe with the dual-lighsaber attack pattern, but it's not a flaw, just the learning curve.


All we have come to expect from the Star Wars universe.

Sound and music:

Standard Star Wars fare, but well-used.

AI and Difficulty:

I took off one star because defeating many Sith is way too easy; catch them in Force Choke, and throw them off the nearest cliff edge. That being said, when you actually have to FIGHT one, watch out as they're pretty good.

Controls and Interface:

Finely attuned to the Xbox, I can't imagine playing a lightsaber game without one. The directional-based saber swings work so much better with a control pad than a mouse.


Grab it. Enjoy it. Be happy Lucasarts still has a few good ideas up their sleeve, and have started paying attention to quality instead of mere branding again.
