Amazon.co.uk Review

From the most popular film trilogy in cinematic history comes the ultimate guide to the Star Wars universe. Behind the Scenes contains just about every piece of information on everything to do with Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. As this was released before Episode I hit the screens, it also contains "sneak previews" of the prequel, but most of the action focuses on the original three.

You can explore the characters in depth, from original concept sketches and development, through to the final completed version. You can also explore weapons, including a testing area, explore locations; study the timeline of the Star Wars universe and much more. The depth of information is incredible.

The compendium comes on two CDs and is very easy to explore and navigate around, so is perfect for young budding fans and older fanatics alike. With loads of video clips, audio, and video extracts, there should be enough to keep you entertained for hours. There is also a trivia quiz that will keep a running score as you explore.

This is an interactive information collection, and is not a playable game, so if you are looking for Star Wars action, then Starfighter or Shadows of the Empire might be more up your street, but that aside, Behind the Scenes will entertain any Star Wars fan, young or old. --Chris Hall

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for any Star Wars fan 12 Nov 2001
This is truly amazing. It's a thorough guide to practically every element of the original trilogy.
With detailed info on characters, technology, locations. There are complete scene-by-scene run-throughs of all three films with the scripts (including useful tidbits of information).
There's a huge Behind The Scenes guide which explains in detail the processes of making the films.
Finally there's a huge collection of pictures and information about all the Star Wars merchandise. It's nice to see all the stuff we can't have isn't it...
Oh and to top that off there are some novelties like a 'Test The Weapon On The Stormtrooper' game which includes the Death Star laser. And there's a tour of the Millennium Falcon.
This, the Episode I Insider's Guide, the inevitable guides to Episode II and III are all must buys because they are definitive guides to the films.

5.0 out of 5 stars behind the magic behind the fun 15 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
this is a big must for any star wars fan.but be aware this is for windows 95/98 but will run on xp(well it does on mine anyway). this cd rom is a very great addition to any star wars collection. it is full of information that takes you threw all three films of the original trilogy but does included a small snippit of episode 1 the phantom menace, my favorite slice of star wars fun is on the second disc the lost scenes which includes the famous cut scene between luke and biggs plus a few more lost scenes.all in all this is a great cd rom bye it because it is worth the money

also look out for making magic behind the scenes of the star wars trilogy special edition
