Some Dreamcast Games I will not review. Star Wars Ep 1. Jedi Powers

I was going to fully review Star Wars Epsidoe 1, Jedi Powers...
...but now I am not. So here is a half assed review.

It's not that it's a bad game...it's just seems stale to me.

Gamespot actually did a good job by describing this as a standard action game, with no real action...

Gamespot Review.

If you are a fan of Star Wars you might enjoy this more. I liked the movies, but I am not really a fan fan if you catch my drift. Combat is fun, then gets repetitive. Use force powers. Jump around. Slash with your lightsaber. Controls are not the best.

That's about it. It sticks to the movie so there are no real surprises in the plot.

There are a TON of good video games for the Dreamcast. This one is NOT top shelf. I would rather review an action game like Nightmare Creatures 2 which is hated by many and loved by a select few than a game that is described by many as mediocre.

My final say:

Buy it for $2-$4 American depending on condition. ONLY if you are a collector. Or you love beat-em-up actions titles. Or if you really really liked Starwars episode 1.

4/10

Actually dear Caleb, I do agree with you, but I must say i quite enjoyed this silly little game. Then again, I didn't pay for it or anything... Still, fun for a couple of hours or so.

I remember playing that once for about five minutes, and falling through a glitch in the floor..

I feel quite the same as you Caleb. I have this but did not find it a compelling game...
