The Finger-tapping is strong with this one

Pros Fun concept, excellent force and lightsaber attacks
Cons Bugs, pointless activities, check points, menus
Recommended it? Yes

Let me first start out with the fact that I am a big fan of the Star Wars series and always have been since I saw the first (4th) movie. Some people don't feel this way and therefore would not understand what the force and Jedi are.

Now, even for the people that aren't force-sensitive... Read full review »

Pros Unique characters, interesting moves, interesting enemies.
Cons Glitchy gameplay, some levels are too long.
Recommended it? Yes

Lucasarts has always had a problem with creating quality console games. While their computer games are off the charts in terms of sales and review ratings, their consoles hover barely above average. Jedi Power Battles is different though.

Using one of five jedi, you hack, slash, and parry... Read full review »

Pros Not bad graphics. Good fun. Big game. Lightsabers! Star Wars platformer!
Cons Can be VERY difficult in places. Bit repetitive at times. Can't kill Jar Jar.
Recommended it? Yes

When this game out on the playstation what feels like years ago, I just had to get it. Firstly because I am a big Star Wars fan, but mainly because it was a good old fashioned platformer, granted souped up into 3D, where you could just pick up your controller and play for a while and have fun...

Pros lots of things to do, complete with subgames and hidden characters
Cons graphics could be better, and Plo Koon could have been left out altogether
Recommended it? Yes

I am a big fan of Star Wars. Not like I used to, but that's not the point. But my family grew up on Star Wars, so of course they would pass on this legacy to me. I actually got mad once when I went to Kay-Bee, asked for a real, honest to goodness lightsaber, and they said they didn't carry them... Read full review »

Pros Be a real Jedi Knight
Cons rehashing of Phantom Menace plot is dry
Recommended it? Yes

I bought this game because the original Phantom Menace game stunk. It's plain and simple. I liked the supercharged animation sequence that is the game's intro - and I couldn't resist picking it up. Just because you have force moves - I had to have it.

This is a great game. It is exactly... Read full review »

Cons Ugh! long load time and poor control

Lucas Arts had a chance to take a terrible movie and make a somewhat decent game out of it. Well, they failed.

Pros Good graphics, sound, and effects
Cons Like most Lucas games, this game has very poor gameplay and overall execution
Recommended it? No

First off, I love Star Wars. I loved Episode One. I Loved Episode One Racer. I hated Jedi Power Battles. The creators of this game had such a great concept and idea for this game, but in the end it suffered the fate that so many movie to video game ports do . . . what to do between the events of...

I LOVE STAR WARS, but Star Wars: Jedi Power Battles just didn't live up to my expectations.

Don't get me wrong, the game was all right, but it really needed to have better graphics.

All of the five Jedi Masters, from Obi-Wan to Adi Gallia, do look decent and are animated quite... Read full review »

Pros Graphics, Sound, Gameplay, Characters
Cons View, Health Bar
Recommended it? Yes

This game has many strong points. However there are also a few weak points also. The view and the health bar pretty much covers the weak points. The health bar can be under your guy or at the top of the screen but is rather hard to read. The view shifts constantly and takes some getting used to as... Read full review »

The game
I found Jedi Power Battle to be very fun and entertaining, but after playing it a lot it gets boring. The levels are long and very well thought out. It has great combo's for each character and you can get new force moves by getting a lot of points in each level. The ruler where pretty... Read full review »

The force is very, very weak with this one. I don't get why these companies acquire these cool licenses, and then doom them to video game oblivion by making horrible games out of them. To date...the number of good movie/TV based games: 3. X-Wing, Jedi Knight II, and Aliens Vs. Predator. That's... Read full review »

Pros Fun!!!!
Cons Graphics can be hard to see
Recommended it? Yes

First things first. When you play this game, do not expect to be playing your regular 3-D action/adventure game. This game is really an arcade game. I'm sure that many of you have played "The Simpsons" and "X-Men" at your local arcade. Although the graphics are infinitely superior to those... Read full review »

Talk about potential. When I first read about this game I thought I had died and gone to Heaven. I mean, I am a "Star Wars" nut but "The Phantom Menace" the game was bad, really bad.

Ok, so the movie Phantom Menace was fast paced and action packed, but this game brings out more lightsabers than ever! No, you dont fight each other head-to-head.

Pros Quite possibly the best SW game on the market.
Cons Short and repetitive, much as most action games tend to be.
Recommended it? Yes

In high school, there wasn't a day that went by without someone making a comment about my name that had something to do with Star Wars. Being named Luke tends to do that to a person, and I didn't necessarily enjoy it, but it did give me a certain appreciation for the series -- Know your enemy,... Read full review »

Cons Overall Difficulty/Controls and enemy AI
Recommended it? Yes

When I first saw this game, my mind raced back to the "Super Star Wars" games on Super Nintendo, of which I had owned, loved, and beaten all three. Jedi Power Battles follows that tradition of arcade-like gameplay that only remotely follows the movie's plot. This time, however, the movie is Episode... Read full review »

Star Wars Episode I Jedi Power Battles (playstation 1, 2000) Saled Greatest

Store Note: Buy it new & now! with eBay Buyer Protection

The Trade Federation, under the influence of Darth Sidious, have set up a blockade of the planet Naboo. Naboo is located far from the capital of Coruscant, and thus, the happenings can not be witnessed directly by the Republic. While it is known that the Trade Federation has formed a blockade, it is unknown to the Republic that they are preparing a full-scale invasion of the planet.You may be thinking that you have already dealt with the Trade Federation in the PlayStation title Star Wars: Episode I: The Phantom Menace. Perhaps you have, but with Star Wars: Episode I: Jedi Power Battles, players do not need to worry about solving puzzles, though they will occasionally have to escort characters. Whereas Star Wars: Episode I: The Phantom Menace is an adventure game that follows the movie's storyline, Jedi Power Battles sacrifices elements of the movie in order to provide a beat-'em-up action experience. Players assume the role of one of the five available Jedi: Obi-Wan Kenobi, Qui-Gon Jinn, Mace
