I gave this game an eight because I was expecting more I was kinda new to starwars because my friend let me play this game with him. What I did like about it was the number of combos you could use. what I didn't like about it was that I thought this game should've been a little longer because it took me only about 2 days to beat it.
this game is pretty cool but it is an exact copy almost of the lord of the rings games. and the regular game is pretty cool but the boss fights are stuipid all you do is hold the block botten until you can hit him. and it is really short. so rent it if you are a really hardcore starwars fan if not leave it alone

Despite what my title says, I actually enjoyed this game.... for the most part. The graphics are good, and the Light-Saber and Force Powers are a ton of fun! There is plenty of variety when it comes to Saber combos and Force powers. You can really change up your fighting style if you want, it just takes time to learn. You can play as either Anakin Skywalker, or Obi-Wan Kenobi. If you've seen the movie then you'll recognize when the story skips some important parts, and not all of the movie is shown, only enough to help the game move along. I loved running and jumping around slicing off droid heads. It's a lot of brainless fun. But there in lies the problem. After the first few levels, everything starts becoming very repetitive. All you do is fight the same enemies over and over, once in a while with a boss thrown in. This game's only saving grace is the fun you get from swinging around a light-saber for the first time. It really is an experience. The only other great part of the game is the sound. The score is fantastic as usual, and the sounds of wooshing light-sabers and blaster guns really makes it exciting for the short amount of time that you'll play it. Some of the voice acting is taken from the movie, but for the most part, they had different actors doing the voices for the main characters. Overall, the game itself is way too short, only about 7-8 hours. The game does have different difficulty levels, but an all too easy block-button can make the harder levels a breeze. To defeat harder enemies, all you do is block, then strike. The game also has a co-op mode and a sort of cheesy player vs. player saber-fighting mode. I wouldn't buy this game. But it IS worth it to rent, at least one time. Any fan of Star Wars will enjoy this game. But if you're not a fan, then don't bother. I give this game a score of 6, which is just about average. Simply put, fun sword fighting and force powers, decent graphics, great sound, shortened story, badly repetitive gameplay.
