Star Wars is back, in pixelated form!
I'd just like to say that the movie was lacking in all departments, acting etc. But i'm not writing about the movie, i'm gonna tell all of you about the rather excellent game that is the tie-in to the movie.
As all gamers should know, tie-ins are usually a cheap cash in to try to squeeze more money out of the franchise. Not in this case, oh no, what we have here is an awesome game which restored my faith in the star wars galaxy.
First off, a good game isn't a good game if it isn't addictive. This game is seriously addictive. I could saber my way through hoards of robots all day long. It never gets boring, not once. Even after seven years.
Secondly, the music is beautiful, fast paced and wondrously conducted. You begin to feel like a Jedi, be it a small one, and whether you like it or not, you'll end up with a huge smile stretching from ear to ear.
And thirdly, the freedom you are given is immense. There is no set way to complete your mission. You don't have to dive into in straight away, instead you annoy all the gungans with hilarious results, or you can murder innocent children for calling you "a monster". It's priceless.
By now, this game should be available for less than five pounds. Do yourself a favour, go out and buy this game. You will never look back.
Oh yeah, almost forgot, may the force be with you.
