While the force is with you, fighting with it is too hard.

Bad but appropiate game.

The game is bad, just plain boring and not enjoyable, but it's appropiate for little kids. thank you common sense media for allowing us to show people what we thought of these products.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (9 ):

Rabid Star Wars:The Clone Wars fans, who tend to be elated by anything featuring the likenesses of their favorite characters, will be the best audience for this game. Gamers not heavily invested in the ever-growing plot of the Clone Wars will likely get frustrated by the unfortunately sloppy controls. The gun-toting clone trooper levels are reminiscent of countless other shooters out there, but they're far more fun than the admittedly more creative Jedi levels. The game requires the famously nimble Jedi to flip, spin, and hop around the screen like a leaf in a windstorm, but aiming your Jedi's leaps is far more difficult than aiming your clone's blaster (the control system for which actually works incredibly smoothly).

That being said, the two-player cooperative mode provides a lot more entertainment value. And regular viewers of the Clone Wars series will be rightly impressed by how much the look and tone of the game make it feel like an episode of the TV show. The well-performed cut scenes, featuring the show's real voice actors, are arguably the game's high point.
