Star Wars Demolition User Reviews

9.0

Demolish a Hive of Scum and Villiany

The good:

- Authentic Star Wars vehicles, worlds and characters
- A nice, original concept in an otherwise samey universe
- Lavish environments realised with good solid graphics
- Wide variety of weapons and hidden traps in each match
- Multiple game modes plus multiplayer carnage
- Excellent, clever musical score

The bad:

- How did Darth Maul get in here?
- Draw distances, despite good graphics, could be better
- No reverse gear leads encourages high-speed racing but sometimes provides frustration
- Handling gap between vehicles too large

Summary:

"Star Wars: Demolition" is a refreshing new take on the overused universe of lightsabers, droids and mystical hocus pocus Forceplay. The story is nice and simple: since the Empire has banned the dangerous Podraces on Tatooine, Jabba the Hutt has come up with a new moneymaking scheme. Taking vehicles and pilots from all over the galaxy, he pits them against each other in fights to the death. Things blow up a lot, people cheer, Jabba laughs. Job done!

Made by the team behind "Vigilante 8", this game is actually a high-quality title. The graphics and presentation are very authentic, with LucasA...

8.0

Different, but not as good as it could have been

The good:

The concept

The bad:

Vehicles all handle like cars

Summary:

The concept of the game was a really good one, but it wasn't done to its full potential. All of the vehicles handle like cars whether it be a Rancor, jet pac, or a snowspeeder. Charging up weapons is a nice feature, and so is hunt a droid which can be changed into a Jar Jar hunt if you find the code for it. The game is fun for a little while, but it gets boring fast. If you liked Vigilante 8 and Star Wars, get this game. Otherwise, don't bother.

Bottom line:

Its an okay game, but there is a lot of room for improvment.

It's Star Wars With A Twist!

The good:

A nice take on Star Wars, all the best ships and smooth weapons.

The bad:

Battlefields are little bland.

Summary:

If you have ever wondered what would happen if a Rancor went up against a Trade Federation Tank, then this is the game you want. With all the great Star Wars ships pilled into a battlefield and left to slog it out, this game is fast, frantic and loads of fun!

One little downside is that the battlefields themselves feel empty. With Nabbo being one big square with some statues in it and the Death Star Two being a big flat area with a trench, the enviroments could have done a bit more.

Don't let that put you off buying this game. It's explosive, fast and action-packed, and with secret character...

5.0

All this and I don't even get to shoot Jar Jar!?

The good:

Attempts to add new innovations to the existing Vig8 engine. Good music

The bad:

Innovations fall flat on their face. Graphics pretty mediocre.

Summary:

Oh good, a recent review that I don't have to commend on it's originality. Star Wars: Demolition is nothing near original. The folks at Luxoflux just slapped a Star Wars license onto their existing Vigilante 8 engine. Heck, why not, games with the word Star Wars take the corporate fast track to the top sellers list. Maybe the Luxoflux developers needed to make their condo payments?

The game, as stated, is built from the Vigilante 8 engine. It's a car combat game. There are many vehicle options, from all walks of life in the Star Wars universe. Each has it's own strengths and weaknesses. Pla...
