The ratings are all over the place on this game. To start off it was a platinum hit so that tells you something. I really enjoyed how you could control the lightsaber with the analog stick instead of just pushing a button. The story is around the worst Star Wars movie so that is unfortunate, but the levels are pretty interesting and the game is a decent length. The multiplayer is a joke.
If not the worst, one of the worst Star Wars games

Obi-Wan is nothing more than a attempt from Lucasarts to cash in on the Star Wars brand name. This is probably one of the worst games I have ever had the displeasure of playing.
There is nothing original in Obi-Wan. It is simply a paint by numbers platformer, with an extremely weak story, shoddy level design, and just all around bad game mechanics.
Every level plays out the same, you as Obi-Wan run through hallway after hallway of different buildings killing the same identical enemies over and over again. To change up the gameplay, between levels Obi-Wan spars with other Jedi to increase his abilities. This is probably the only thing any effort was put in to, since there was actually a bit of difficulty to these scenarios.
The game moves slow, the controls are poor, the graphics are atrocious, and the voice acting is flat. None of the characters sound like their film counterparts. Overall, it's just not fun.
