I got this for the kids (good excuse) who love this game. Though this has a 16 rating on it I found none of the content unsuitable for the younger children (apart from it is a fighting game)and my 6 year old was able to get to grips with the controlls and concepts very quickly. You start off limited in what you can do and unlock more powers as you go. You can then increse these powers, by adding points to them, to great effect. You have a force power bar which different powers use up at different rates and a health bar. Other things along the way to keep you searching are light sabre crystals, to change the colour of the beam and combat crystals to augment the light sabres power or your force powers, Light sabre hilts. There are also Holocrons to unlock 'art' and crystals to up your health and force power.
What is really great about this game is that you start off as Big Darth! Huzzar, they have really got it right this time I thought. My joy was not long lived as very soon you become Vader's apprentice. OK I can live with that. Then there is a point in the game when you have to infiltrate the Rebel Alliance and to keep your cover you have to start shooting Stormtroopers. Suddenly you start to have doubts over your motives and it go's down hill from there. You can see where this is going can't you... Needless to say I lost intrest pretty quickly after that, only playing to get all the force powers. Once you complete the game you have the option to restart the game with all your powers intact.
The two player mode is a laugh where you can have lightsabre dules with another person
As far as platform games go this held my attention for a little longer than most. The kids are still into it big time.
Fun but ultimitly, disapointing, if you could have stayed on the Dark Side and crushed the Rebelion it would have a been a clasic.
