1) I love Star Wars, and I love Episode III. When I saw it for the third time, the theater was right next door to Electronics Boutique's flagship store. (at Universal CityWalk) After the movie, we went into EB to look around while I was still high on Ep. III Fever.
2) My DS has been doing nothing but collecting dust over the last few months because there are so few worthwhile games for it so far.
So yeah, I bought this even though I expected it to be a piece of poop. Surprisingly, I've had lots of fun with it. It's an old school side-scrolling beat-em-up, it's extremely repetetive, and it's short. Yet it somehow managed to keep me interested for a number of hours, even beyond completing the game with both characters on Jedi difficulty. I think one major factor is the skill/ability system. I didn't expect there to be so many options in combat for a little game like this. I've noticed a lot of people think the 3D flying levels are the game's one saving grace, but not me. They aren't bad, but they were so incredibly short that they just didn't make any difference to me. I much prefer running around with a lightsaber, chopping up battle droids and cutting down clone troopers, other Jedi, and Nemoidians. Also of note, the sound is surprisingly good. The lightsabers actually sound authentic and deadly.
A previous reviewer said: "Theres no use for the touch screen!"
*bzzzt* Incorrect. You can use the touch screen to activate your super attacks. You just touch the icons, instead of manually using the D-pad and buttons.
Graphics: Outstanding graphics for a DS game. I've seen some of the other games for DS and their graphics aren't nearly as good as these. Multiplayer mode (the place where you fly ships) looks almost as good as a PSP game, except whan you blow up, then it looks it was from a coloring book.
Controls: Very basic, very easy. Sometimes I might try to block a low attack with L down and accidently hit R down and choke him to death, but who cares. Starship controls are complicated, I changed mine the first time I played it.
Multiplayer: Awesome, sort of. You can only play multiplayer with starships which is why its only sort of awesome. I've always wanted to duel my friend and show him I'm just as good with a lightsaber as I am with a starship, but that's why we have PS2.
My biggest advise is that you see the movie before you buy the game.
