A terrific coin-op conversion with plenty of frantic flying and blasting. Good sound and good graphics complement the equally good gameplay, making the most enjoyable of the Star Wars trilogy of games.
The third in the trilogy adopts a scrolling, solid-graphic technique - bread and butter for the C64 - rather than utilising vector graphics. The result is a smooth, fast game - the most playable of the 8-bits. Sober to look at due to the dull colours used and with strangely quiet sound, Jedi is nonetheless considerably better than were parts one and two.

Taking a detour after the vector based prequels, ROTJ is a diagonally scrolling shoot/avoid-em-up. It's jolly enough for a while, and helped a lot by the tie-in, but never aspires to greatness.

The game captures little of the coin op original: rubbish sound, bland graphics and unappealing gameplay. When are Domark going to get some brilliant programmers in to do their conversions? This is just another average blast.
Return of the Jedi would have made a nice stocking filler for younger players if only the price had been a little lower. I get the feeling that it has not got enough depth or challenge to interest the more advanced gamer. If you were a fan of the classic film then maybe you should consider this game, but don't expect too much from it, you'll only be disappointed.

The first two games fared averagely on the 64 because they were vector graphics only, and the 64 isn't very well equipped insofar as vectors are concerned. This one will fail because it isn't much fun.

Grafikken er ikke noget at skrive hjem om - bortset fra Walkeren der er virkelig velanimeret - og lyden er meget begrænset og ikke særlig inspirerende. Begge disse ting kan vel overleves, men hvad værre er; spillet er gudhjælpemig fyldt med fejl! Return of the Jedi biiver derudover meget hurtigt kedelig, da underspillene er ret lette at gennemskue - og så kan man bare hver gang.
Power Play (Jan, 1989)
Die “Jedi-Ritter“ sind auf dem C64 wohl eher Ritter der traurigen Gestalt, denn grafisch sieht das Ganze ziemlich übel aus. Auch das Spielgefühl ist eindeutig schlechter als auf dem ST.
Als traurigen Schlußkommentar kann ich die Ergebnisse meines Tests wohl nur so zusammenfassen: Die ST-Fans erhalten ein durchschnittliches Actionspiel, die Besitzer der diversen 8-Bitter sollten sich RETURN OF THE JEDI nochmal auf Video oder im Kino reinziehen - dabei kommen sie sogar noch billiger weg.
