    The Force is strong with this one.

    The Star Wars Trilogy comes alive on Game Boy Advance. Help Luke discover the Force as you play through memorable scenes from the movies in Star Wars Trilogy: Apprentice of the Force.

    Features

    • Play through classic Star Wars scenes
    • Multiple weapons and Force powers
    • Multiplayer modes


    Unless you've been frozen in carbonite since Gerald Ford was president, you should be familiar with Star Wars episodes four through six. Farmboy Luke Skywalker has his world turned upside down when two droids take him on a journey of self-discovery. In the process, he learns the powers of the Force and the ways of the Jedi knight. And there's some guy named Darth Vader who has an interest in Luke.

    In this side-scroller, you play as young Skywalker as he journeys toward his destiny. Each level is based on a scene from the Star Wars Trilogy. Just like the movies, Luke starts out with his blaster and an empty mind. Soon, you'll learn to use the lightsaber and his mind will be crammed with the powers of the Force.

    Certain confrontations are given the cinematic treatment. The action pauses as a letterbox put the action in frame. Once Luke vanquishes all the enemies, the letterbox frame disappears and Luke continues with his journey.

    In some levels, R2D2 joins Luke to help him unlock doors and discover hidden items. Like Luke, R2D2 is susceptible to injury. Recharge R2's juice often or your little buddy's demise will force you to start the level over.

    Apprentice of the Force mixes things up by putting Luke in the cockpit of an X-Wing and the Millennium Falcon or behind the controls of a speeder in the Endor forest. The challenges stay fresh as Luke's powers grow stronger. You can also unlock bonus media.

    With another GBA, Game Pak and a Game Boy Advance Game Link Cable, multiplayer contests of capture the flag and dogfight await two combatants.

    Be sure to check out Ubi Soft's official Star Wars Trilogy: Apprentice of the Force website.

    Bottom Line

    Have lightsaber, will travel. Step back in time and put yourself in Luke's shoes. Even though you know what enemies are coming, they're tough to beat.
