The presentation is up to Domark's usual high standards, with a choice of three difficulty levels, demo mode, high score table etc. Return of the Jedi is probably not as good a game as either of its predecessors, but it is a good conversion and an adequate game in its own right.

The necessity for precise control and persistent, accurate enemy bikers make the Spectrum Jedi the hardest of the lot. What it lacks in colour it makes up for in smooth scrolling and great presentation. A good game with which to end the trilogy.

Graphically the game is quite neat. The scrolling is fast and smooth, and the sprites are nicely animated. The control response is very good too. In fact it's all quite addictive - for a while - but the only real problem is substance, or rather lack of it. If you're looking for something to while away a bit of time then you could do worse than Return Of The Jedi, but if you're looking for something a bit more 'special' then maybe this isn't for you. It's not awful by any means, but then again it ain't brilliant either. Ho hum.

The third in the trilogy. Jedi differs from the other two insofar as it uses a Zaxxon-style viewpoint rather than vector graphics, but even so, this Speccy conversion of the Atari coin-op is dull, repetitive, and not a whole lot of fun. Recommended to fanatics of the films and the coin-op only.
