Take 16 missions and a load of lightsaber dueling combined with some pretty sweet graphics and you have Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. Granted, no game you could even dream up, let alone sit down and create graphics, sound AI and all the other goodies associated with a video game could ever live up to the hype surrounding THE MOVIE - Episode III, Revenge of the Sith, but The Collective sure gave it a heck of a shot ... and one worth trying.
Most gamers will clearly love the option of bringing Yoda or Darth Vador into the mix of this game and they should, as it is one of the gems the game allows for. The single most stellar aspect of Revenge is without a doubt the graphics. You truly do feel like you're grasping a lightsaber in the heat of battle and using whatever given force power you deam worthy at the moment... and for many, that aspect in itself makes the title game-worthy and time-worthy.
Don't expect a quick jump into force-mastery as you delve into the game... for it takes time for you to master your force powers along the lines of the Jedi Mind Trick if you want to enjoy the fun of having your foes fight against one another. You will have to work your way towards the mastery of the force if you expect to enjoy the power the game offers.
You will work your way through turrets, bosses, and the "I am clearly not on your side of the rebellion" droid. For the most part, this action packed graphics intensive game serves its purpose. The purpose is the experience of fun inside the Star Wars Universe.
That being said, however, there are some aspects of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, that could have used some tweaks. The sounds do not sound as deep as some previous Star Wars action games (Hello Jedi Outcast) and the overall player experience seems a bit lacking in content as you fight a bit too many of the same models/turrets ... but overall, you should walk away feeling like you enjoyed yourself in the world of Star Wars... which is after all ... what you are buying.
Expect a full review in the near future.
