Description

There is a disturbance in the force, and the Jedi are there to find its source. There is a whole Armada of Battleships and troops besieging a planet and two Jedi knights come to protect the planet.

This Star Wars title from Lucas Arts is completely based on the movie Phantom Menace. It is basically an action game in which you play a number of characters from the movie, solve a number of puzzles, beat down enemies with your light saber or laser guns and follow the footsteps of the movie. But remember, you will follow a different trail to the same ultimate ending.

Trivia

Box

The original (non-Archive Collection) versions of the box had various silly things hidden under some box flaps, that were different for alternate versions of the box (there were lots). Examples:

"WOOKIE!" "Graaahr." "Battel DROIDID!"

Content

Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace contains a few scenes that were in early versions of the screenplay but never made it to the final cut of the film (most noteably Obi-wan Kenobi rising out of the waters of the Naboo swamp while the Federation tanks hovers by).

PC Player review

The German magazine PC Player gave the game a bad review and received an angry letter from Multimedia Handelspartner EG, most likely the German distributor of the game. PC Player printed some quotes in the editorial of issue 08/1999, e.g. that a bad review is a slap in the face for every fan, that the magazine should work out new evaluation possibilities together with the industry or that some silly persons should not judge products costing millions to produce. The editorial in German language can be seen here.

PlayStation version

The PlayStation version of the game includes the video of Duel of the Fates.
