Star Wars: Clone Wars picks up where the movie Episode II: Attack of the Clones leaves off; in fact, the game's very first battle recreates the climactic battle in the movie, with you leading the clone army and blasting every droid in sight. Not big on strategy, Clone Wars is your basic arcade-style shoot-'em-up game. If you liked Star Wars: Starfighter, this game's for you. You control the Jedi leading the Republic's clone army, sometimes fighting as Anakin, Obi-Wan, Mace Windu or other familiar Jedi, as the war takes you from planet to planet. As the leader, you may issue squad commands to team-mates, allowing them to act independently and assist you in your mission. Your ships and weapons are varied, giving you the pleasure of piloting everything from zippy speeder bikes to the impressive Republic Gunship. Soar over ice fields and desertscapes, or manoeuvre through labyrinthine galactic scrap yards, leaving robotic wreckage behind as you blast through enemy ranks. And every so often you actually get to use your lightsaber, too. The game is fun to play, and the controls easy to master--but you won't find a lot new or challenging if you're an experienced gamer. Also, unlike its sibling, Bounty Hunter, the graphics leave a bit to be desired--but luckily this aspect of the game doesn't detract much from the gameplay. The pure pleasure in this game lies in becoming a part of the Star Wars universe. And, of course, blowing up robots. --Maile Bohlmann
