The Force arrives on the PC

The Good

  • Nonstop arcade action.
  • Easy to play.
  • Nice vector graphics, you can easily recognize the TIE Fighter and the TIE Interceptor.
  • "Use the Force" bonus, survive the Trench without firing your lasers, and you'll be awarded this extra bonus.
  • It's Star Wars, which makes the game just that little bit better (for me at least).

The Bad

  • Audio is almost non-existent. I know it is an old game, but the developers could have used the PC speaker to at least produce something which resembles the Star wars theme.
  • You play the same three stages over and over again. It seems a bit illogical to destroy seven Death Stars and it also gives me that "been there done that" feeling.

The Bottom Line

Star Wars is an arcade shooter that's so action-packed, you don't have the time to think about how dated the graphics are. But due to it's repetitive nature you probably won't play it for a very long time.
