 Star Wars Episode 1: Jedi Power Battles - By LucasArts

Who has not wanted to wield a lightsaber and play Jedi?! Well, wait no longer. Jedi Power Battles, inspired by The Phantom Menace, letís one or two players take the role of a Jedi Master to deal with various enemies in environments taken from the movie. Remember when Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon Jinn were on the Trade Federation ship fighting the droids? Well, you can enact that scene yourself and use your lightsaber to deflect laser fire or cut down droid soldiers. Youíll also be able to duel Darth Maul, leap across the Sarlac pit, and face other challenges only a Jedi can master. Jedi Power Battles has nicely rendered graphics with fluid animation. You have plenty of Jedi Masters to choose from and it is cool when you play with a friend and select a unique pair of Jedi to fight together. The game sound effects are excellent and the music is none other than John Williamsí thematic score. One strange thing, though, is that when any character picks up an item, they all laugh like Yoda. Iím not sure why this was done. The game has excellent control, though you do have to get used to how to use the Force and block attacks as the L button is used for both. Jedi Power Battles has 10 levels of play as well as some unlockable levels. There are two difficulty levels as well. You also have a Training mode that will help you learn the controls and improve your skills with the lightsaber. This is an excellent title that should not be missed.

  Star Wars Episode 1: Racer - By LucasArts

One of the most memorable scenes in Star Wars: Episode One was the pod race in Tatooine. It comes as no surprise, then, that games would be developed that would take advantage of this scenario. Racer is certainly one of those titles and it is one that lets you live the race yourself. There are 23 different podracers for you to choose from and 25 different courses in eight different planets! These planets have different terrains for you to tackle with both natural and unnatural obstacles. Youíll be on water planets, ice planets, and volcanic worlds, just to name some. The game does support the Jump Pack, which is recommended for an even better experience. The game graphics are excellent with top notch animation and some really nice cut scenes that introduce each race. Sound is also excellent and the music doesnít get any better as it is the soundtrack written by John Williams for the movies. The controls are also very well handled and do not deter at all from gameplay. One of the cool aspects of the game is that you can modify your racer just like the characters did in the movie. You can inspect your podracer and make changes to help you win the race. The game can be played by yourself but you can also compete with a friend. Here the screen gets split into two halves so each player can see where they are at the same time. Overall, this is a really fantastic game that any Star Wars fan cannot be without. Heck, you donít even have to be a Star Wars fan to enjoy this excellent racing game.
