Review Detail

One of the best Star Wars games ever
Hard to find, OOP, but worth it.

This game simulates the ending of Episode I. Whatever your opinion of that film is, there's no denying that this is an awesome game.

You have four battles simultaneously going on, and you have to balance your card play to try and either win or hold your own in each arena. You've got the war on the plains with the Trade Federation and the Gungans, where the Gungans are hopelessly outmatched and are merely hoping to distract the TF long enough for the Queen to accomplish her goals. You have the Queen, her decoy, Panaka and a legion of guards trying to scale the palace and reach the top floor where the viceroys are holed up. You've got Anakin in his ship, racing through screens of starfighters in an attempt to destroy the Trade Federation Control Ship. And in the core, you have the duel to the death between Obi-Wan, Qui-Gon, and Darth Maul.

You take turns activating characters in the different arenas by playing cards that are much like Memoir '44. Move your guys, take your shots, try to accomplish your goals.

The only knock would be the static setup might get stale over time, but there's so much going on that it will probably take awhile for that to happen.

Highest recommendation to pick this one up, even at OOP prices. If you're actually a Star Wars fan, the recommendation is all the stronger--sell blood to get it, whatever it takes. Just a great, great game.
