Game Chronicles
The Clone Wars is an excellent game for Star Wars fans or anyone looking for an intense combat shooter. The selection of vehicles, structured missions objectives, and rewarding bonus system will make this a favorite for anyone who plays it.

For the first time in my life, I was completely engrossed in a Star Wars game. The action is non-stop, which means that the fun never fades. Most of the movie's coolest vehicles are controllable at one time or another, including the awesome Republic Gunship! I admit, the third-person missions aren't as exciting (mainly due to the clunky control scheme and the weak objectives, which include tasks as basic as using the Force to take back your lightsaber). But they're very brief and require little skill to beat them, so you'll be back to the fun part of the game before you know it. When you pick up a copy of the Episode II DVD next week, be sure to bring enough cash to buy Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

Game Over Online
Clone Wars is supported by a decent graphics engine. There may not be hundreds of vehicles on the screen at once but there's a fair bit of action going on and to be honest, I was looking for framerate hiccups. To my surprise, there weren't many noticeable ones at all. The little infantry troops running around really add to the game's immersion, even if they're nothing more than cannon fodder.

Ce Star Wars se démarque des autres adaptations par son côté bourrin. Il est très amusant et jouable, mais souffre d'un manque d'innovations.

All in all, while Star Wars: The Clone Wars may not be the best Star Wars game ever made, it’s also far from being among the worst. Rent first, and may the Force be with you.

But don't let some poor technical marks make the final judgment. Graphic hiccups and Jedi segments aside, The Clone Wars is still great fun and makes for one of the better Star Wars video gaming efforts out there. It's very much a "pick up and play" arcade style of game, requiring very little thought as to any strategy required – simply point in the right direction and shoot. Combined with a series of extra material to be unlocked (game trailers, a documentary, in-game codes, etc), and an unappreciated but robust multi-player mode, Star Wars: The Clone Wars stands as a proud bearer of the Star Wars namesake. Kudos, Pandemic, and thanks Lucasarts, for giving these guys some playtime in the sandbox.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars doesn’t reinvent the genre of driving combat, but its variety of vehicles and levels makes this a solid gaming value. This game delivers a little of everything in creating a forceful video gaming experience.

Ein kurzweiliger Spaß, der aber dennoch seinen Reiz hat, da man sich auch noch im Mehrspielermodus austoben kann. Auf dem Bildschirm ist immer die Hölle los. Überall Explosionen, Laserfeuergewitter und kleine Männeken, die über die leider etwas verwaschene Oberfläche stolpern. Doku! Deine letzte Stunde hat geschlagen!

Sliced Gaming (GameBiz)
This was really a missed opportunity. The action on screen comes thick and fast and with a bit more spit and polish this could have been a quality title. The graphics are so-so and there was no need for the 3rd person levels. The cut-scenes are an embarrassment and if done correctly, could have added to the experience of the game. I cringed every time Yoda or Obi-Wan said something! But the game itself was a lot of fun that will appeal to hardcore Star Wars fans, while everyone else with any interest should definitely rent it.

Star Wars games certainly are a mixed lot. For every Starfighter, there's a Demolition, and for every Galactic Battlegrounds a Force Commander. When LucasArts gets it right, the results can be stupefying. When the publisher gets it wrong, well … let's just say you'd rather be sponge-bathing Jabba. Thus, it is with great cheer that we can report The Clone Wars to be a welcome addition to the franchise. However, such endorsements must be taken with a grain of salt -- as a purely turn n' burn experience, this title won't have everybody's lightsaber thrumming. But assuming you like fast, furious combat with a hint of strategy thrown in, it might make a padawan out of you yet.

George Lucas only has one more movie to crank out before his epic pair of trilogies is complete. But in the meantime, gamers and fans of the films can, of course, look forward to countless related videogame renditions of the Star Wars universe. These LucasArts titles typically fall into one of two categories (or occasionally both): recreating the action of the films themselves, or venturing into uncharted, side-story waters that attempt to fill in the holes around the plots of the movies.

Malgré une durée de vie limitée en solo et une réalisation moyenne, The Clone Wars est un jeu prenant et amusant à plusieurs.

The Clone Wars offers four multiplayer modes that can be played with up to four players in a split-screen view. Unfortunately, there's no option to play through the campaign cooperatively, which is a bit odd, considering you're often fighting alongside computer-controlled allies anyway. The existing multiplayer modes can be fun, though. Duel is basically a deathmatch mode, allowing players to pit the game's various vehicles--and their skills--against each other. Control zone is sort of a king-of-the-hill mode in which players gradually earn points by occupying a designated area and fending off any would-be usurpers.

At its core, Star Wars: The Clone Wars is a fun and frantic action game that lacks polish. If you’re a Star Wars fan and/or enjoy blowing stuff up, it’s well worth your attention. The multiplayer offerings are also meaty and complementary to the single-player missions, though I don’t recommend The Clone Wars for its multiplayer alone. Those looking for more depth or demanding the best graphics and level design should stick to Rogue Leader and its kin.

However, the obvious weaknesses found in this lack of freedom, and ill-conceived mission design still don't detract from the wonderful setting and comparatively rich plotting that identifies this as a Star Wars game. When all is said and done, fans may well still enjoy The Clone Wars, despite it being a slight disappointment.

Video Game Talk
While The Clone Wars delivers in gameplay and has that intangible Star Wars feel going for it, its short length really makes it best suited as a rental, unless the price is right. Rent it.

Difficile d'oublier les séquelles laissées par Rogue Leader et de se laisser enthousiasmer par le contenu peu original de The Clone Wars. Le manque de surprise dans la mise en scène s'accorde avec la médiocrité du gameplay pour conférer au titre un potentiel ludique très faible et à l'intérêt franchement limité.

The Video Game Critic
If you're a fan of Attack of the Clones, you'll recognize all the imaginative new vehicles and villains from that film. Sadly, the multi-player modes are lame, and my friends lamented about how they couldn't all be on the same team. Clones Wars has its moments, but it's definitely not a top-notch Star Wars title.

Deaf Gamers
Star Wars: The Clone Wars is yet another Star Wars game that simply does not live up to expectations. The poor provision for deaf gamers ruins what was an OK game at best. The single player campaign was far too short. If you don't have Rogue Leader yet you would be better advised choosing it over this, but check out our review and you'll find that although it's a better game it still doesn't cater for deaf gamers.

Jag är inte så vidare förtjust i Star Wars: The Clone Wars, men har trots detta ganska svårt att peka exakt på vad det är jag tycker illa om. Det är inte smärtande fult, har ett skapligt ljud och kontrolle nfungerar för det mesta. Däremot känns det genomgående rätt medelmåttigt, och saknar framför allt själ. Köp hellre Star Wars Rogue Leader: Rogue Squadron II om du har en Gamecube. Alternativt Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter om det är Sonys maskin du spelar på.
