Weapons and Combat
Keeping with the games' user friendly approach, the control scheme has been designed with Jedi character's lightsaber and force powers, as well as clone characters firing trigger accessible from a single input source. Because of the difference in the character classes weapons, combat differs depending on the class chosen. Due to their reliance on the their lightsabers, Jedi will mostly engage enemies at close range, although force power attacks can allow for more distance from targets. In addition, utilizing Jedi powers at point blank range players are able to engage in "droidjacking," which allows a Jedi to take control of a droid's weapons system and other abilities. On the other hand, clone character combat relies more on firepower, utilizing a variety of blaster type weapons and thermal grenades, although clones are able to acquire heavier weapons, such as miniguns and rocket launchers as the game progresses. Because of the projectile nature of these weapons clone character combat can be fought as a variety of distances.

This game had me feeling pessimistic when I received it through the post, as I haven't enjoyed most Star Wars games (although I never played the first installment of this particular franchise) and judging by the cinema release of 'Clone Wars', I was expecting this to be yet another disappointment. But I'm pleased to say that my fears were all unfounded - this game is one of the most engaging I have played yet on the DS.

The first thing that you are faced with is the great ways that the developers have found to let you control the characters - the method of using the pointer to dictate movement is not an entirely new one, but here you can jump by tapping green hoops that appear above you, and if you time it right you will land on them. You can set bomb timers by tapping a choice of four numbers in ascending order within a few seconds, you can levitate things by using the force on them - simply by holding the pointer down and pressing a shoulder button where you see a little twinkle... in certain combat situations you are given a very short time to repeat sabre-strokes with the pointer - in short, there's a huge variety of really good thinking gone into the player controls.

By pressing the up button you can toggle between characters that have a part to play in the mission you are on. I was not a fan of 'Clone Wars', but have really enjoyed playing it so far - and my seven year old son thinks it's fantastic; when he first saw it, he said it was just like the film - a great achievement for the humble DS.

For all the complexity, it's very easy to pick up and learn as you go along - and there's a lot of game to get into here. It's a great example of how to work within the constraints of the DS, and also how to make the most of the unique features it offers.

My son liked this game, however, he has got stuck and can't move any further although it is a 12 rating game, and he is only 10. He is good with games though so i imagine it's quite tough!
