Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that while the game is rated T, you won't see the kind of blood and gore you'll find in shooter games. The violence is very much in line with what you'll find in Star Wars movies, as light sabers and lasers are used to destroy the enemy.

What's it about?

STAR WARS III: REVENGE OF THE SITH is a third-person action adventure game that allows players to experience the power of the Force through Jedi masters Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi. The game features missions based on scenes from the movie (as Anakin, you must rescue Chancellor Palpatine, for example).

As you complete each mission, side missions open up that allow you to play as other characters. The game gets progressively harder as you move your way through it, eventually advancing to the boss battles, which are all-out duels with familiar foes like Count Dooku, Mace Windu and Darth Vader.

Is it any good?


It's clear how this game helps to promote the related movie: The game features a full 12 minutes of movie footage that you won't find in any movie trailers. And it is a quality production: Sharp graphics make players feel like they're characters in the movie. The sound is provided by Skywalker Sound, which provides sound effects in the movie (though true fans will find the voices of Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi annoying since they are not the voices of the actors from the movie). However, gameplay is average at best.

Battles are repetitive, and even the most complex moves are fairly easy to execute. It takes only solid control of one or two buttons and a few hours of playing before you feel you have mastered the game. Slightly more appealing is duel mode, in which you can set up dream duels with such popular characters as Yoda and Darth Vader. The light saber battles in the two-player mode are scored in rounds, with the winner moving on and unlocking additional players that can be used for future battles.
