So no comments on Lord Vader's ending?

I mentioned above that it strays a bit from the movie and you dont see the actual damage to Anakin via the lava.† It is cool that the scene ends with Obi-Wan picking up the Saber that he will give Luke in ANH.

That's Obi-Wan's ending ^
I mean when you beat Obi-Wan as Lord Vader, And from what I've read he has a awesome ending.
I just want someone to confirm it, rip a video of it and post it here ;D

Sorry to hear that about your DS Tydirium :(
I hope it turns up soon, I would of ripped the house apart looking for it which I guess you did. It's also weird to hear that it's not up to the quality EA set with LOTR, That's really dropping the ball IMO, The last film and all.

You X-Box and PS2 EP3 owners have a special treat for you if you finish the game with Anakin/Vader...you lucky gits :P

Is this worth buying just for the DVD? how long is the running time?

Don't care what other people say, more NIN is a good thing.

Sweet mama! the DS version is awesome...only played 30 mins or so, but wow MP looks a blast plus you can add bots if you have no friends like me† :)

I'll post a mini review once I get further into the game.
Edit: Ok I'll do it here cus I don't want to make a triple post.



DS Episode III
First of all the short version, Buy it...you like SW right? you want a decent SW game with MP Bots?

Here's the chunky bits:

Graphics: we have two diff types here. DS exclusive 3D Flight mode and the main hack and slash graphics ported over from the GBA version, Both do the job well and there's a strong Anime style to the hack and slash sections with cut scenes & opening mission splashes. The touch screen is taken up by either a picture or your force abilities which can either be used by touching the screen or using the buttons, it's done very well.
The 3D sections follow the same sort of graphics we saw on SNES Starfox, Though the explosions seem to be cell shaded ??? and there's good detail on the ships and backgrounds, Flying over Hoth was really kool, not forgetting the space maps with huge asteroids and battleships and Coruscant levels with the trademark tall buildings, lots of kool MP dogfighting to be had here methinks.
Touch screen is used well for this mode, You have a radar and such but the best part is how you can forward the shields to the back or front or overall {insert SW quote here} :)

Audio: Apart from the opening crawl which is a lil grainy, music is fantastic!
Lots of famous pieces (haven't found Duel of Fates yet) in excellent clear stereo† :D† from both sets of films. Background effects are excellent too with lots of clear saber noise, droid speak and yoda grunts :P

Gameplay : Can't fault it yet but im only halfway through with Obi, And I've only played one flying section and it didn't take away anything, I was hoping for a "This is why I can't stand flying" comment but oh well.
The hack and slash sections are fun and are great to play, we have a Streets of Rage/Double Dragon thing going on here with some RPG elements thrown in, as you can collect points to level up certain skills which differ for both Anakin and Obi.
The Dooku Duel was excellent, with you trading places with Obi/Anakin if you took damage from the Sith Lord, and yup it follows the film even if your playing as Obi, cept the escape part a bit.
There seem to be a percentage level that can be seen on the level select screen, so there's decent replay here not forgetting the two opening difficulty skills.
I can't say much for MP as I've only played with bots, but I had no problems taking them out, they have adjustable AI if your wondering.
Plenty of unlockable ships too (Slave one 8)) and I believe you can play 4 player from one card.EDIT: need four cards sorry.

Im not far into it but looks like we finally got a decent handheld SW game with lots of replay in it.

9/10† ;D

Im very temped to get a PS2 for this and a ton of other games (SW Lego)

I wish the Cube hadn't been abandoned like it has, It started so good with SW titles, there was even a release title for it (Rogue Squadron).
I had the chance over in RS forums to ask the developers of SW lego why the Cube version was skipped and they gave a very poor excuse...

My DS copy of EP3 is on the way though :)

I also saw these at FP (london) I gave them a huuge pass after checking them out, too little for too much £.
Was weird how they just appeared, no film ties in's, nothing...
My 12 " Ash does the job nicely.

I wonder if they'll have a figure for this one if you preorder it like BF1.

If they do, I hope it's a damm sight better than the last we got, I'd just wish Hasbro would release a set of figures from BF1 with the right weapons.

Nice review, Im thinking of just buying one for the Cat-Scare feature† :)

These pack-in figures are really putting me off the Vehicles though, Stupid reason I know but hey.

I think it kinda sucks that their making a sequel so soon, I would of happily spent money on an expansion pack.
I hope they release another map to tie in with ROTS being in the cinema.
