DescriptionStar Wars: Obi-Wan
is a third person action game in which players take the role of Obi-Wan, a Jedi apprentice.
As Obi-Wan, players investigate an underworld crime ring weeks prior to the Trade Federation invasion of Naboo. The player will travel through a number of areas, such as Coruscant and Cloud 9, many of which are familiar from the movie series, while fighting Battle Droids, Tusken War Chief's, thugs, and many other similar enemies.
Obi-Wan's lightsaber is the player's primary weapon, which has multiple methods of attack depending on how it's used. Players also have access to Force Powers, which provide an advantage over their less talented foes. The player can force push an enemy, force grab their weapon, pick up an object and throw it at them, or force jump to high places.
The game has both a single player mode and a multiplayer mode. The option also exists to go to the Jedi Arena, where players can battle with characters such as Mace Windu and Yoda.

The Press Says
There are currently no topics for this game.
Obi-Wan was originally slated for an early 2000 release, following in the wake of Episode 1's theatrical release. At the time the game was originally a PC-only title with possible console ports on the horizon, with lots of previews and cover features on several PC gaming magazines still around. Funny how things turn out in the end, huh?
