Star Wars: Episode III Revenge Of The Sith

The Star Wars franchise is full of awesome fights and battles, and Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith puts you directly in the center of the action. The third movie in the “prequel trilogy” was so popular, that it was adapted into both a home console and handheld video game. While each game offers its own unique features, both titles are an exciting trip through the most explosive moments in the film. There have been many Star Wars games across the history of the medium, but few are as fun and as accurate to the film as Episode III: Revenge of the Sith is. Better yet, the action-packed gameplay makes this an exciting adventure, even if you're not the biggest fan of Star Wars.

Main Game Features

  • Dozens of missions
  • Multiple characters with unique upgrades and attacks
  • Cooperative and competitive multiplayer modes

Story

For the most part, the Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith games directly follow the plot of the 2005 film. As an intergalactic war begins brewing, two Jedi masters named Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi must fight against the insurgent force. As they make their way from planet to planet, the pair dispatch with any and all resistance they find. With an established taste for chaos and a tendency towards the dark side of the Force, Anakin must fight his inner urges towards evil.

The game includes many memorable Star Wars characters, including Mace Windu, Palpatine, and Master Yoda. The console versions also feature over ten minutes of footage from the movie itself, providing a better context for the events at hand. It's also an interesting origin story for the Empire, the antagonistic force from the original Star Wars films. Overall, the story in the Episode III: Revenge of the Sith game is impressively accurate to the source material.

Gameplay

Whether you're playing the console version of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith or the handheld version, your objective is mostly the same. Controlling either Anakin or Obi-Wan, you'll make your way through multiple levels of action-packed battles, fending off droids, clone troopers, and other Separatist rebels. While the console version contains seventeen distinct levels to enjoy, the handheld version has a few less, with approximately twelve missions to complete. Both games highly feature lightsaber-based combat, powerful force moves, and blaster deflections. The handheld game plays out as a side-scrolling beat 'em up game like Double Dragon, while the console versions are third-person action games with a focus on puzzles and platforming.

In both games, you're able to upgrade Anakin and Obi-Wan by using experience points during battle. As you slay enemies and complete levels in sufficient time, you'll unlock points that can be used to further strengthen your abilities. The upgrade options in the console version are more in-depth, as they allow you to unlock new offensive and defensive moves, as well as upgrade your existing force-powers. Additionally, both Anakin and Obi-Wan have their own unique moves, adding some replayability in the mix.

Conclusion

The Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith games offer a great way to relive the events of the movie, all with exceptionally fun action set-pieces. Unlike other movie adaptations, the game does a great job adapting the source material, resulting in an enjoyable gameplay experience and an accurate story. Both game are tons of fun in their own right, each offering their own unique take on this epic science fiction tale. Whether you're a huge fan of Star Wars or simply looking for an entertaining game that doesn't make you think too hard, we recommend trying out either of the great Revenge of the Sith games!

Game Reviews

The Star Wars franchise is one of the most globally recognized movie series ever created. Fans from across the world have loved the story ever since the release of the first movie in 1977, and with the release of the game Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith, fans can rejoice in the feeling of wielding their very own lightsaber to defend against the ever-looming Dark Side. This game was released before the movie in which it was based on, allowing players who were able to snag a copy before then a chance to learn a lot about the upcoming movie installation into an already world-famous franchise. The game brings together characters and storylines from the movie franchise, with you in the driver seat to destroy the evil Sith Lord, or to use the power of the dark side to create your new empire.

Action & Animation

The combat scenes throughout the game are done so in a way that titillates the visual senses of its players. Fast paced action during the light saber duels and battle scenes are done effectively in a way that makes the player enjoy them even more so, almost as if they had their very own saber in hand. The graphics and animation are perhaps the strongest aspect of this game, without such attention to detail the overall rating of this game may have dropped. While the action scenes are always fun to play, the missions themselves can be found repetitive throughout the story and don’t seem to hook players as strongly as other games in this genre such as the Lego-Star Wars games.

Storyline & Gameplay

The game follows the story of the movie quite closely as one can imagine, yet some of the details and aspects which make the movies great don’t quite convey over into the video game version. While some might be satisfied with simply being handed a light-saber and told to destroy the bad guys, within this genre it takes more than just that to keep players hooked and wanting more. The graphics paired with the score from John Williams do keep you questioning whether or not you are truly fighting through the plot from the Revenge of the Sith, the missions begin to get repetitive after a time, held up mainly by the superb light saber mechanics which the game does possess.

The game has some exciting aspects for the super fans of Star Wars, especially for those who loved the prequels, however it isn’t exactly enough to carry the game to a near perfect rating.

7

While the light-saber duels and jedi mind tricks are an interesting factor in the overall gameplay experience, the game plays too simplistic and at times repetitive for fans who are looking for a more intricate experience.

Pros:

  • Graphics are outstanding given the creation date of this game, maintaining player’s attention.
  • Access to real characters from the movies provides a gameplay very seldom seen in these games.
  • Original score by John Williams, supports the story and emotions conveyed throughout the game.

Cons:

  • Missions/Storyline becomes too repetitive, unable to maintain players curiosity for what the next level might hold.
  • Simplistic combat functions plus some buggy AI factors which cause frustration among non-Star War fans looking for an exciting adventure game.

In the Sith movie, when Palpatine reveals himself as a Sith Lord to Anakin Skywalker, he says to pre-Vader, "I can feel your anger." Well, the game sure infuriated the heck out of this reviewer--are you feeling me, captain evil? Replace ores with droids, swords with lightsabers, and hobbits with Jedi and what you've got is a Lord of the Rings-style action game based on the last Star Wars flick. But someone mistakingly replaced the entertaining bits with monotonous bits. As you guide Skywalker or his mentor Obi-Wan through the pretty movie sets, you'll see the same exact props and set pieces-- and you'll slay a ridiculous amount of Federation droids and open far too many locked doors with your glow stick (apparently, breaking and entering is a big problem in George Lucas' far-away galaxy). The handful of lightsaber duels would be a nice change-up, especially since you've got so many upgradeable moves and Force powers in your repertoire...if earning a victory actually required some talent. The game also offers versus and co-op play, but there's no need to subject another person to Sith. If you want to be cruel, just make them watch Episode I and II again.

Like any Star Wars game, Revenge of the Sith gets a Force push from its production values alone. Heck--even a game starring insurance adjusters would pump me up if it were set to Star Wars music. But look past the gloss and it's clear that Sith runs out of fun Jedi tricks. Too many levels center on mindless droid hacking. Cool lightsaber boss battles step things up, but half the time I felt like I was winning through luck rather than skill. As a companion piece to the movie--with extra characters and scenery not in the film--Sith gets the job done with flair. If only it had the fun to match.

6

Recently, we've seen the greatest Star Wars moments more often in games than in the movies that inspired them. So with Lucas maintaining a distance from the game version of Sith, I expected a high(er) standard. But the gameplay follows a braindead hack-n-slash formula: Your character easily slices through hordes of weak-minded enemies, occasionally flipping a switch or shooting a turret gun. It may be monotonous, but thanks in part to the upgradeable combo system (which rewards Jedi-like dedication) and considering the game's paltry five-hour length, I sure didn't get bored. Above-average graphics, sound, and music add to the experience--by how much depends on your appreciation of the Force.
