Star Wars: Clone Wars – Demo Impressions (PS3)

Clone Wars Main

“Aaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrggggggh!” I shout (in my head) as my character plunges to his death for the tenth time. I’m having trouble jumping from one platform to another.

Yes, you read that right. Someone with 25 years of gaming experience is having trouble jumping from one platform to another πŸ˜₯ For some reason Clone Wars’ perspective makes it more luck than judgement as to whether you actually get where you want to go or kill what you want to kill.

Star Wars: Clone Wars is based on the hugely popular kids TV show and the game sees you take on various Clone and Jedi roles as you play through the game.

I have never been a big Star Wars fan, though I’ve always thought a (great) game based in the original films universe (I know it’s all supposed to be the same universe but all the new stuff is pretty boring so I’m talking specifically those first few films) is long overdue.

This certainly isn’t it and to be honest 20 minutes playing this was 20 minutes too long. I had more fun playing the Punisher demo, which is saying something.

The gameplay involves shooting (if you’re a Clone) and jumping with a light saber (if you’re a Jedi). Sadly it all feels a bit clunky but the idea of the Jedi being able to ‘ride’ and control some of the bigger robots is pretty cool.

Sadly that isn’t enough to save this gameplay experience. I certainly won’t be picking this up but perhaps if you are a fan of the show you might get some enjoyment out of this game.
