Star Wars: Obi Wan is a first person set pre-Episode One, and its light saber combat truly shines. The misions, though, are a bit short.
|I am a HUGE fan of the Star Wars series, and immediately buy each Star Wars game to see if they bring me into that universe. While I've been disappointed with many recent ones, I was really pleased by Obi Wan.|
The light saber duels are really the shining part of the game. The fluidity and grace with which he moves really embodies the Jedi Knight's years of training. Add in a few force moves, and you really do feel like you can take on seemingly overwhelming enemies and come out victorious. Playing in multiplayer against a talented friend can challenge you for months.
The game was pushed out for the release of the XBox, so there are some down sides. The graphics don't really shine, because the system was still being explored for its capabilities. The levels are very short. And there are a few bugs in the game that are mildly annoying.
Still, the game is great fun as a stylish combat system, and any sequels using the base graphic engine will be a joy to play!
