I just got done playing the game, and I have to say, its not what I expected, but its far from a terrible game. Worth the $59.99 I shelled out for it.

Its a good button masher and the visuals are amazing. The environments could have been a little more destructable but when you get down too it, using the environment against your opponents all the time will actually get you killed, especially later on in the game when you’re facing hordes of them and the only things you can rely on is your lightsabler, jumping, and force lightning.

The story was pretty decent, kept you wanting to finish the story just to see how things ended. Voice acting by the main characters were good, but more work could have been done on the secondary ones. I also wish they had James Earl Jones doing the voice of Vader, but the guy they got (Matt Sloan) did a believable job.

The best voice acting I found was done by Jimmy Smits, who played Bail Organa in the game and the Movies as well.

As for gameplay, some parts of it are well executed, like the jedi duals, while others, not so much, like some of the camera work in some areas (It can work against you in some areas which can get you killed), and your characters interaction with the environment while walking around (You occationally get stuck on some invisable little bit on the ground that you have to jump over to get around).

All in all the game comes off as polished and complete with some minor jaggyness around the edges.

An 8/10 in my books.

      [SIZE="2"][COLOR="Yellow"]I actually liked the game too, however I wouldn't pay 60 $ (or 50€ for me) for this game on second thought. It is just too short to pay full-prize for it.[/COLOR][/SIZE]
