Star Wars: The Clone Wars


Star Wars: The Clone Wars is out for all console platforms, and lets you roam the Episode II world as Mace Windu, Obi-Wan and of course Anakin.

You start out near the end of Episode II, racing your way to the arena and then fighting off the enemy troops after the arena battle. The game continues onward, letting you control hover-tanks, Republic gun-ship, speeders, and more. In addition there are ground combat situations where you're wielding your light-saber against various enemies.

Much like the various other Star Wars games, there are a series of loosely-connected missions with main and bonus objectives on each one. You have to take out the enemy units. Escort the convoy. Destroy the main guns. The convoy shape and enemy units of the day change, but the basic tasks are the same.

That's not to say it isn't fun! Pod Racer just involved racing a pod on various tracks, and we loved that. I'm a big fan of flying combat so the variety of vehicles and situations was quite enjoyable. The graphics are quite good, with plasma bursts having a series of green rings, fire-blasts looking quite realistic and dust clouds obscuring your vision. On the vehicles you drive the guns move, the antennae sway, the wing-trails dance behind you.

Even better for XBox fans, this game goes LIVE! All of the fun you have in single-player mode is merely a training session for true live combat. Team up with friends and coordinate attacks on the enemy. You can even download new maps!

Not a complex game requiring a lot of thought, but a fun way to blast through a weekend.
