But use caution in your decision-making before you take the plunge -- an investment of 800 Wii Points is perfectly valid for this design, which still offers intense and explosive action in the galaxy far, far away even 17 years after its original release. But it really is incredibly, frustratingly challenging on any difficult setting other than Easy, and its version of the Star Wars story is only loosely in line with what you've seen through your Special Edition DVD.

Super Star Wars was a groundbreaking game for its day, but like Mark Hamill it has aged terribly. Because of its popularity when it was new it will no doubt please many former fans on nostalgia alone. And as a series it only seems appropriate to play this first entry before moving on to the superior second and third entries. But newcomers to the series should be prepared for relentless, unfair punishment like one would expect from working as Darth Vader’s secretary. The early but beautiful examples of cutscenes make the challenge worth it, even if the story has an annoying tendency to rewrite the script. But the game should not be approached without a fair amount of caution, and is only for those strong enough in the force to have, for example, a Mega Man game or two under their belt.

Super Star Wars est un bon run and gun, certes bien en deçà d’un Super Probotector en termes de rythme et de mise en scène, mais qui témoigne de bonnes intentions envers les passionnés de l’univers Star Wars. Agréable à jouer, beau et globalement fidèle à la mythologie, ce remake vidéoludique d’Un Nouvel Espoir est à conseiller aux nostalgiques, même si un meilleur soin au niveau du level design et la possibilité de contrôler maître Kenobi n’auraient pas été de trop.
