Star Wars: The Arcade Game is not as fun or as intense as Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back for the Atari 2600, but it is certainly a worthwhile purchase. It looks great, it's challenging and it does a good job of simulating outer space battles from the legendary Star Wars film.
The Video Game Critic (May 18, 2005)
The climactic trench stage is well done, but frankly not much better looking than the Atari 2600 version. Oh well, at least you can hear the Star Wars theme and R2 beeping in the background. Upon blowing up the Death Star, you just see a quick flash and a lame message announcing, "The Death Star is destroyed". The game's main issue is the control; the cursor is slippery and difficult to aim with precision. Visually however, this game is a dead ringer for the arcade, and probably the best home version I've played.
Electric Playground (Mar 12, 1997)
I have to submit my vote for the ColecoVision version of Star Wars: The Arcade Game as the worst Star Wars related videogame I've ever played.
