Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back :: Mobile Game Review

( Rating: 4 Star Rating)

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.

    Banned for driving me to end the silence and driving me to say:*Coconuts are a nice fruit and it's as delicious as people think it is. In other words I don't mind if you have your own opinion. I don't mind at all. So even if you have a negative opinion on long paragraphs, I will respect that and let you know that you never need to read all of this. It's just here as part of my ban to Abbergrl. It doesn't matter if you read this because she is still banned. I have nothing against her, Abbergrl is queen. You slay grl. No pun intended. Actually it was definitely intended. Would I lie to you? Na! I should be doing something important but instead I'm doing this. All in the name of queen Abbergrl of the KW kingdom. I shall now bow down to her even though I'm banning her. What is up with me? And what is up with you? Why are you still reading this? Who knew people were so attentive? I wish I was like that TBH; how I envy you. Gah, I'd give anything. Except my family, friends, and electronics. I'd make a shout out to all of them but they won't be reading this and neither is anyone else. If you're still reading this, wow. I apologise if some of my questioning is overdone. Sometimes I'm repetitive. Sometimes I'm repetitive. Sometimes I'm repetitive. Sometimes I'm repetitive. Maybe you lost your place in this paragraph, who knows? Maybe you lost your place in this paragraph, who knows? I love a good mystery. Ever read any mysteries and realised that the evilest looking people are never guilty? Never judge a book by its cover. Known fact: I have never screamed or cried at any movies. Known fact 2: I have written longer nonsensical paragraphs. Yeah I don't like to bore people, even though I just did, so I'll end it here. I warned you there was no point to this. Grey squirrels eat bagels but purple squirrels like knitting, why are circles round? Tulips, because 64 is not an ice cream. Oh, and coconuts for life.*
