Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this is a fun lightsaber fighting game set in the Star Wars world. It's easy to pick up and the infrared technology works well as kids wield the lightsaber to control the game.
What's it about?
With this TV game, kids use a special lightsaber to slash their way through seven levels of battles as they train to become Jedi knights. Players start off as a young \"padawans\" in training at the Jedi Academy. As their lightsaber skills improve, they learn special combination moves, earn more powers, and go on missions as apprentices.
To make the game work, you connect a 4-inch round \"training droid\" to your television's audio/video input plugs and then position the droid on top of your TV. The training droid contains the games and has an \"electronic eye,\" which, through the use of infrared technology, detects the movements of a handheld lightsaber provided with the game. As kids slice the lightsaber through the air, their movements appear as blue streaks across the TV screen. The game runs off batteries that are housed in the training droid.
Is it any good?
This is an easy-to-learn but challenging-to-master game that gets kids up and moving. Kid testers loved that they could defeat the famous foes, including Darth Vader and General Grievous.
