Star Wars: Episode I Jedi Power Battles User Reviews

A Little Less Conversation, a Little More Action

The good:

- Five of the best Jedi Knights from "Episode I" complete with frantic combination moves and Force powers.
- Three bonus characters including two non-Jedi and everyone's favourite Sith Lord, Darth Maul.
- Ten amazing levels filled with tons of vicious enemies, huge leaps, platform puzzles, a few vehicle sections and impressive boss battles.
- Great graphics, music taken from John Williams' film score and all the sound effects: top marks on presentation.
- Two-player co-operative mode is a brilliant arcade-style thrill as two Jedi fight alongside each other.
- Hidden bonus levels provide amusing distractions from the main thrust of the storyline levels and make for a nice reward at the end.

The bad:

- Jumping sections can be tricky to judge, leading to frustration on your third or fourth attempt.
- No two-player deathmatches, although the co-operative is so strong this really isn't a problem and would not be played that much.

Summary:

The original "Episode I: The Phantom Menace" game on the PlayStation focused on telling the story of the film through interactive characters, basic action sequences and more conversations and multiple routes than your standard RPG. For those wanting to battle more like a Jedi than an Ewok in the "Episode I" environment, "Jedi Power Battles" offers a side-scrolling arcade game that delivers just that.

The story of the film has been watered down to brief paragraphs of text that explain why you're hacking through legions of battle droids: the rest is all about the fighting. You control one of f...

Star Wars: Episode 1 Jedi Power Battles

The good:

Non stop action and using the force to guide you through the toughest times. Having the energy to move forward through difficult tasks and to complete complicated levels. The music matches the theme and the special graphics and effects make it look to engrossing at times.

The bad:

At the very end of the final battle, I may had a glitch on my game, when Ben was trying to get through the moving energy rooms that show a bright red layer of a shield of some type. I couldn't find a way through until I had to keep forcing the character to run through the wall and eventually he got in. There seem like no other way.

When you went to Tatoonie? to free Anakin SkyWalker, destroying the monster in the cage was not an easy task because of the time involved. If you kill too many of the wrong people, the game is over.

Summary:

This game is full of non-stop action and based on the movie. If you had not seen the first movie of the Stars War log, then you may have a difficulty of understanding how to play the game. Its based on the entire movie only your the one acting out the main role. The music is beautifully done, and the graphics are rich in detail with computer technology, you almost seem to forget where you are sitting at.

Jedi Power battles

The good:

2 player mode makes this game one of the funnest games to play, overall. 1 player is cool too. Charate animation is really good.

The bad:

The graphics are pretty bad. Controls are good overall, but sometimes mess up.

Summary:

what else must I say? Its a fun game by yourself, but as i said before, i have more fun playing this primitive game on 2 player than I do some of my xbox games. One tip though, rent before you buy.
