A good game that's a must-have to all Star wars fans!

The Good

It followed the Story of "Star Wars Episode 4: A New Hope". There is a boss at the end of quite a few of the levels, and the boss's are very well done and some are quite challenging. Their are new enemies and bosses that arn't in the movie as well as some that are. You get to upgrade your gun as you go and later in the game you get the choice to play as Han and Chewie, in addition to Luke. The sound effects of R2 beeping, the Tusken Raider's roaring and the lightsaber swinging are good and the music is straight out of the film and it very good. There are 4 3-D levels, two in which you ride in a landspeeder, two of which you ride in an X-Wing and attack the Death Star, all of which have tremendously good 3-D graphics for SNES, especially considering that the game was made in 1992! A great game. I disagree with MegaMegaMan, though, that it's the hardest, but that's probably just cause I've had it since I was 6 or 7 but I didn't get any of the other ones till I was 14 (now I'm 16).

The Bad

What didn't I like, huh? Well, the biggest thing is their's no password system. My favorite level by far is the Death Star trench Run, which is the last level of the game, but to play it I have to play the rest of the game, first, which takes about an hour, maybe slightly less if your extremely good. I can't just type in a password and go to the last level, which sucks, and if you get game over you have to start over from the beginning, which is probably why MegaMegaMan thinks it's the hardest of the Super Star Wars games. Other than that the only thing I don't really like it there's no final boss, unless you count shooting Darth Vader's Tie Fighter down as a boss.

The Bottom Line

A great game, a must-have for all Star Wars fans and even if your not a fan you'll enjoy it.
