Customer Reviews of Star Wars: Obi-Wan
A good start...8/23/2002
I rented this one and finished it well before the 7 day (new) deadline from Blockbuster. I'd say it took me about 15 hours to complete. The developers tried to make this 2 games - one with a plot and levels to complete, and the other is a battle game to duke it out with friends (a la Dead or Alive). Since I'm not a fan of the latter type, I only wanted it for the plot portion. First and foremost, I thought the game play was great! There were lots of ways to kill off enemies - cut them in half, smash them into a wall with the Force, throw them over the sides of bridges, and the list goes on. There were various goals in each level that I really enjoyed. I was impressed with the sizes of each world, but diappointed with the occasional drop in the refresh rate. I could have used a little more guidance on the training. The "training" levels the game gives you are just a battle against one of the other Jedis. Uh, where's the training here?!? I eventually figured out how to defeat each one, but it was more of a butt-kicking than training. On the other hand, the actors doing the voiceovers did a nice job; wasn't as "cheeseball" as I've found in other games' voiceovers. Overall, rent this one for some fun, but definitely don't buy it.
I'm not a gamer, but this is addictive!1/4/2002
I had pre-ordered this game and received it the day after it began shipping. I bought it for my son, but tried it my self. I really never play video games, but this one is incredible. The level at which it engages the play is amazing, and I played it for about 8 hours straight when I first popped it in. Two days later and it is finished. I must say that the "final battle" against a certain red-n-black striped fellow is WAY EASY after all the practice you get during the game. The verious "bosses" throughout the game were much harder than the grand finally which was over in under 30 seconds.
