When it comes to Star Wars games, the Original Xbox had some of the best, and this one is no exception. This game has held up very well considering it's over 13 years old and plays better than some 'AAA' shooters released these days.

however, the term 'Can't have too much of a good thing' definitely doesn't apply here, as the game is way longer than it needs to be. The main campaign is split into 3 small campaigns, and the 3rd one on Kashyyyk is where my biggest gripe is. It's way too long, it's just the same old wooden rooms over & over while fighting off the same enemies. It just becomes more of a grind than a challenge and you find yourself just constantly pushing forward grabbing ammo & health along the way.

To be honest though, the whole game is like this. There are no collectables or secrets to find and the levels are designed in a way as to keep herding your team in one direction.

Overall, I don't have to say much about this game, it's a standard squad based shooter set in the Star Wars universe. It works brilliantly and does exactly what it's supposed to. A must for anyone's collection, and if you own an Xbox One, It's Backwards compatible too and actually shines up quite nice.
