Battle Imperial forces, dodge asteroids, use the force and duel with Darth Vader himself. And all on a cell phone! We review this game.

THQ has a dose of fun for your cell phone with their Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back game! It lets you jump into the action of the second original Star Wars movie to battle the Empire and [KWLINK 436]Darth Vader across the galaxy as Luke Skywalker and Han Solo. Is this pint-sized mobile game giant fun? Find out with our game review!

Whiz! Bang! Wheee!

This Star Wars game starts you off piloting a snowspeeder against giant Imperial AT-ATs on Hoth, then tosses you into space as you dodge TIE Fighters through an asteroid field, explore the jungle of Dagobah, battle Stormtroopers in a city in the sky, and even have a lightsaber duel with Darth Vader!

The Light Side

With more than a half-dozen levels, and a few different ways to play, this game gives you a lot of variety. It's also cool to be able to check out the action from the movie, even if it is one of the 20 year-old ones.

The Dark Side

Be careful as you play! Hitting the wrong button can easily shut your game down and make you start the level over again. The lightsaber-fighting controls are a bit sluggish too, it's like swinging underwater...

Can You Feel the Force?

With a nice selection of levels, some classic Star Wars action, and higher difficulty settings to challenge your skills, this game is solid! A few control problems kick the fun factor in the shins, but it's still a good game.

Thumbs Up:

  • Lots of different game modes.
  • Bust up Stormtroopers with your lightsaber!
  • Duel with Darth Vader (good luck!)
  • Thumbs Down:

  • Easy to accidentally drop out of your game.
  • Lightsaber controls are a bit sluggish.
  • Game Rating: 4

    Available for: Cell Phones.
