Another title to add to theStar Warsgaming shelf,The Clone Warspicks up where the movieEpisode II: Attack of the Clonesleaves off. In fact, the very first battle in this game re-creates the climactic battle in the movie, with you leading the clone army and blasting every droid in sight. Not big on strategy,Clone Warsis your basic arcade-style shoot-'em-up game. If you likedStar 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 teammates, 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 maneuver 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 as well.

The game is fun to play, 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

As an inexperienced gamer and a STAR WARS fan, I enjoyed playing THE CLONE WARS. The game starts off with the Battle of Genosis from the ATTACK OF THE CLONES movie and fills in a few plot holes from that film. However, the main point of this game involves an ancient, destroyed Sith device called the "Dark Reaper". The Reaper was an almost invincible weapon the Sith used in their battle against the Jedi 1000 years ago. The weapon was defeated and destroyed, but not totally. Rumor has it that Count …
