What parents need to know

Parents need to know that the T rating is primarily because of the violence. There's no blood and gore, but plenty of firepower is used to blow up futuristic battleships. The graphics in this older game are as advanced as any of the newer releases.

Oh. My. God.

This is extremly hard! In Jedi Knight mode, I couldn't even get past Level 1! Try, but don't rage.

It's fine...

The gameplay is fun, however can get repetitive, the graphics are pretty good, the battle mode is good, but the controls are a but weird. Overall 6/10.

What's it about?

STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS allows players to act out the actions of such popular movie figures as Mace Windu, Anakin Skywalker, and Obi Wan Kenobi on a quest to stop Count Dooku from resurrecting an ancient Sith weapon of mass destruction.

The game is violent -- players use high-tech futuristic ships armed with laser weapons that are powerful enough to blow away the evil forces as they try to complete each mission. There are a wide variety of vehicles to choose from.

Is it any good?

Each mission provides a challenge that will keep even advanced players on their toes and beginning players wanting to come back for more. The game is rated T, but it is well suited for older tweens who are into the Star Wars movies. The violence here is no more severe than what they see in these movies. Players younger than 10 will most likely be very frustrated by the game and possibly a bit frightened by the loud noises that accompany each laser blast.

Overall, the game would make a nice addition to the collection of any player over the age of 12 who likes challenging action adventure games. If you feel comfortable allowing your kid to watch Star Wars, then you'll probably feel okay letting them play this game.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about sci-fi and fantasy. Is game violence less troubling when it's set in a futuristic world that uses fantastical weapons? How would it change the game to use more familiar guns?
