Last year many of us must have heard a story about two daft Americans trying to create a lightsabre by filling a glass tube with petrol and setting it alight. Luckily with this game you donít have to go to such extremes if you want to recreate classic moments from the latest Star Wars film, Episode 3.

Unsurprisingly the gameís storyline follows in the path of the film, with over 8 whole minutes of exclusive movie content. However it doesnít go as far as to ruin and spoil the film, if you have yet to see it. The game focuses much more on developing plots based on previously background-characters that usually would have been swept aside.

Episode 3 creates quite a compelling, thrilling and epic story that allows you to play as both the transforming Anakin Skywalker and the always noble Obi-Wan. And by building on a great atmosphere using fantastic audio and stunning graphics this game can easily be described as the ultimate Jedi-action experience.

Experiencing the Force and the feel of a lightsabre in your Jediís hand is something memorable. With these powers you can successfully recreate all the great duels and moments direct from the film. However, the game challenges you even more when it reveals that it isnít just another hack Ďní slash title, when you begin as a mere Jedi and you have to earn experience in battle to level-up and ultimately become one of the most feared or noble Jedi Masters.

Youíre given quite a neat bag of tricks Ė or Force powers Ė to use throughout the game and you can upgrade any of them at the end of each mission. These Force powers allow you to recreate such truly legendary and memorable moments from clips across all of the Episodes, including lifting an X-Wing from your path. You can even use the Force to turn enemies against each other by using the Jedi mind tricks on weaker enemies. And with fully interactive environments to explore you can even grasp objects such as floor panels with the Force to batter off an enemy.

Visually, these in-game environments have been quite beautifully crafted, with the varying scenes never failing to satisfy that true Star Warís fan inside of me. Although maybe not as sharp on the characterís faces, for example, the detail is still very much present in the backgrounds allowing the player to absorb a great level of authenticity that should be present in all movie tie-ins.

Audio-wise you canít expect anything less than the great score composed and played by the famous Skywalker Sound. A Star Wars game would be incomplete without that authentic soundtrack and it really intensifies the thrilling action you can pull off onto an opponent.

Admittedly maybe the single player wonít take you very long, but you can always revisit all 16 levels and find secrets that will unlock more co-op levels, deathmatches, bonus characters and missions and even some interesting concept art.

So put down that glass tube and pick up a copy of this fantastic title.
