Star Wars Episode 1: Jedi Power Battles :: Playstation / Dreamcast Game Review

It doesn't follow the movie too closely but who cares? You get to jump into the shoes of a powerful Jedi and kick some Trade Federation butt all over Naboo and back. Obi-Wan and Qui-Gonn are there as well as Mace Windu. There's also a hulking brute named Plo Koon, a lady knight named Adi Gallia and, if you've got the DreamCast copy, a Jedi named Ki-Adi-Mundi. You can unlock more characters later including everybody's fav Sith Lord.

Carvin' up battle droids leaves sparkly lightsaber effects in the air and the combat moves are sweet. The rest of the graphics ain't so hot though. The bad guys are kinda clunky looking and the jumping parts suck. Sometimes the graphics don't even match the ground, you see the platform, you jump onto the platform, you fall through the platform, you die. Which sucks.


Star Wars always has good sound and this is no exception. The music is great and the classic lightsaber sound is there in all it's humming glory.


Decent levels and some control issues drag down what had the potential to be a great game. As is, Jedi Power Battles is great fun if you're a Star Wars fan but only mediocre if you're looking for an action game.


What's it about?

Feel the power of the force as a Jedi Knight fighting to protect the people of Naboo and put an end to the Trade Federation's villainy.

Are the controls hard to learn?

Nope, it's pretty basic stuff.

How hard is the game?

Fairly tricky, the fights are decent but the jumping is murder.

Age Rating: Teen
