Unfortunately my pre-production copy does not have any sound. However, judging from the previous games, I can't foresee any faults with this part of the product, and you can expect music, explosions‘, zaps and perhaps digitised speech too. A nice ending to this series of games, with a good conversion from the arcades which will keep you hooked to your ST for hours. If you are a fan of these coin-ops you’ll enjoy this version.

ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
Jedi is a marvellous combination of slick graphics, digitised film speech, blasting action and frantic flying. It has turned out as the best of the three Star Wars games because it lends itself more easily to computers, whereas the vectors were more of a coin-op speciality.

The Games Machine (UK)
Zaxxon-style scrolling is not a speciality of the ST, but Jedi's is admirably executed, if a little rough around the edges. Colour is used to good effect and characters are well defined (the Falcon doesn't look much like its cinematic brother though). Crackly speech is present, but doesn't play as prominent a role as in the previous two games.

ST/Amiga Format
The game must be one of the fastest scrolling shoot-em-ups around. Unlike the majority, scrolling takes place in a diagonal direction on all the screens giving an unusual view of the gameplay. But for all its speed and addictive qualities the game doesn't have the graphical imagination to make it a winner.

The presentation is up to Domark's usual high standards, with a choice of three difficulty levels, demo mode, high score table etc. Return of the Jedi is probably not as good a game as either of its predecessors, but it is a good conversion and an adequate game in its own right.

The One
There's no doubt that Return Of The Jedi is a good conversion of the arcade machine. The problem is that it isn't a great game because the coin-op wasn't particular good in the first place.

Power Play
Zugegeben, das Scrolling der ST-Version ruckelt ganz schön. Aber anders als bei vielen Action-Spielen stört das hier nicht so sehr. Das Spieltempo ist derart flott, daß man dieses Ruckeln ganz vergißt. Das Programm gefällt mir deswegen so gut, weil die Gegner sich recht intelligent verhalten und nicht einfach sture Formationen fliegen, wie bei vielen anderen Actionspielen jüngeren Datums. Die “Rückkehr der Jedi-Ritter“ ist nicht sehr einfach; auch geübte Spieler werden nicht auf Anhieb den ersten Level schaffen. Die einzelnen Phasen sind zwar nur mäßig abwechslungsreich, machen aber durch die wechselnden Angriffstaktiken immer wieder Spaß. Die Jedi-Ritter sind somit ein würdiger Abschluß der Star-Wars-Serie.
