    A RARE JEWEL

    This game is really cool, although the Gamespot review says that this game gets a four point who cares, i can tell where they are coming from. But this game is tight for a lot of reasons. First the levels let you take ma... Read Full Review

What Gamespot Users have to say about Star Wars: Episode I: The Phantom Menace

  • User Rating:5.5

    The Phantom Menace is truly a menace for everyone with a good sense of gaming.

    After brilliant games like Dark Force and Mysteries of the Sith, the game based on the first Star Wars prequel movie is the game which destroys what was built with the passing of the time. Annoying combat and repetitive ... Read Full Review

    Underrated

    I remember playing this game about 5 years ago. I was very pleased because the game-play it's quite simple and the graphics are decent. The storyline is proper and you have a variety of characters which you can play as.... Read Full Review

    Its a REALLY immersive game which blends Tomb Raider-like action and the Star Wars universe together.

    Its a REALLY immersive game which blends Tomb Raider-like action (as in the acrobatics, swimming trough swamps etc.) and the Star Wars universe together. If you liked the movie, then this is a must buy. There is an ar... Read Full Review

    Stupid, mindless, and frustrating

    The Phantom Menace is a disgrace of a game that admittedly has a small ammount of appeal to me. I like the running around as a Jedi deflecting laser blasts and such but the game is an exercize in poor platforming gamepl... Read Full Review

    Most Underrated game ever. Very fun for a game that came out in 1999.

    Star Wars Episode 1 The Phantom Menace is a very addicting and fun game. Highly underrated and very fun. It's the only game where you can play Star Wars the phantom menace and it's one of the only Star Wars games where y... Read Full Review

    corrupted by the darkside

    The game had sooo much potential, just the smallest of things could vastly improve gameplay, but unfortunately these small things add up to one big problem which in the end becomes tiresome and just not worth it. The g... Read Full Review

    Honestly not as bad as Gamespot would have you think.

    I feel that Gamespot was unnecesarrily harsh on this game. It can be quite fun to play most of the time and sometimes, it can be frustrating. Overall, I think if you can find it in stores, it will probably be about 5 dol... Read Full Review

    While the adventure and script stays close to the movie, Phantom Meance is a game that you can and should miss.

    After the "first" movie of the Star Wars series the people at Lucasarts got to work on making a game fitting that movie genre and fitting the exciting action and heart pounding excitement. To bad that they only got the f... Read Full Review
