Get the scoop on the Star Wars Miniatures: Revenge of the Sith expansion set from Wizards of the Coast!

While you're waiting for the Star Wars Episode III Revenge of the Sith movie, the Star Wars Miniatures: Revenge of the Sith set is out and it's loaded with movie spoilers, cool toys and gaming fun! Here's our review of this new game from Wizards of the Coast!

Star Wars Miniatures Game Basics!

The game is a strategy battle game in which you control 1" plastic figures of all your favorite Star Wars characters. You get the figs from the Starter Game or Booster Packs and can collect them like trading cards. Each player builds a team of Star Wars characters by spending points on figures. Stronger characters cost more than the weak ones. You battle on a game map with blasters, lightsabers, Jedi powers and droids!

Revenge of the Sith Expansion Set The Light Side

The best news about this set is that there are some really incredible figs in it. The monstrous Grievous's Wheel Bike and the four-lightsaber wielding, quadruple-attacking, Grievous, Jedi Hunters are great. Tons of the basic figs have great poses and colors and the Wookie Berserker looks ready to rip someone's arm off!

The Dark Side of the Revenge of the Sith Expansion Set

The worst news is the guys who painted this set had some problems with the light colors - including pink skin colors. Darth Tyranus looks like he has serious problems, the Clonetroopers are a bit smudgy and a few other figs have wacky colors. Also, while the Starter Game has a really cool fold-out map board to play on, you only get six figs to start with. Oh, and open the Booster Packs from the bottom unless you have a chainsaw handy.

Revenge of the Sith - Light Side or Dark Side?

Definitely Light side. The Starter Game is a bit iffy compared to the Rebel Storm starter which gives you more figs, but the solid map gives it a real board-game feel. There are a few wacky figs but the aliens all look terrific. You can also find out a bunch of info about Star Wars Episode III Revenge of the Sith movie from reading the stat cards that come with the characters!

    Oh trust me, I know a pc is better. But when a console is slower then a console that is technically weaker. That is just, bad.

    The internet browser on the PS4 is BAD not as bad as internet explorer 6 but still pretty bad. I will start with the little things., It is slower then the Wii U's browser (Wii U is an inferior console in terms of processing power.) Scrolling on the PS4 has been dumped down. While the PS3's browser wasn't as good. At least it could scroll smoothly. When you get too much cache on your browser, the browser will load slower, and when you type it takes for ever for the PS4 to register the letter that you have selected.
