Star Wars: Clone Wars is an action game where you'll play as Anakin Skywalker, Mace Windu, or Obi-Wan Kenobi. Beginning where Episode II ends at the battle of Genosis, the story line will take you deep into the Clone Wars in addition to giving more insight into the character's developing personalities. Using one of five crafts or running on foot with your lightsaber, Clone Wars offers a respectable game with only a number of areas that give shaky performances.

Star Wars: Clone Wars is far from spectacular but ultimately pulls off a decent game. What is does produce are extremely tight controls with few exceptions. The hover tanks in particular are a blast to pilot as they are able to achieve a realistic feel allowing you to slide, turn, and accelerate in different directions with ease. Only when on foot do the controls become awkward and probably would have improved the game if left out. Swinging the lightsaber is especially difficult to manage with hitting enemies and blocking laser blasts left mostly to luck or proximity. Another control issue to be aware of is the auto-aim feature. Personally, I'd rather control the crosshairs then have it controlled for me, but others may like to focus more on driving.

The rest of the game exceeds average requirements but few areas are stunning. The graphics fall into this category with well-textured crafts and environments but explosions and destruction of large targets are rather bland. The large scale of the war, however, is captured and relayed in a believable manner.

Star Wars: Clone Wars brings the epic war to life, giving justice to the large-scale battles that unfold. With responsive controls and solid plot, Star Wars fans won't be disappointed but non-fans may not appreciate the Star Wars aspects enough to set it apart from other games on the market.
