Man did this game suck, look, I like The Clone Wars show, and yeah, there are a few cutscenes that show footage from the game and the characters look the same as they do in the series...other than that it's one of the worst games I've ever played, it gave me nothing, less than nothing, not one second of even mild amusement, the combos, hey, just mash the X button for unimpressive mindless lightsaber swinging, the fighting sucks, even though they do try to mix it up with different characters, Jedi's have the lightsabers and force powers, while the clone soldiers shoot and throw grenades, they're both dull, even the boss battles suck. What's worse, way worse are the platforming elements, this game has seriously the absolute worst platforming I've ever encountered. It's sometimes impossible to judge distance and placement of enemies in mid-air. The controls are awful, the camera just as bad, if not more. Thankfully you have infinite lifes, otherwise it would be one of the most frustrating games of all time, I think they knew how awful the game is, so you can use cheats from the pause menu after collecting enough points, cheats like invincibility and one hit kills, just to get things over with faster, I didn't use either, I just wanted to struggle through the awfulness fair and square, it's something like around 4 hours, apparently, the game told me, because it felt twice as long, I was shocked when I first went to the status screen and saw that I still had much more tedium ahead of me, three acts with numerous levels. Look, I just...what's the point in going on? The game sucks, and don't say "it's for kids", no, kids should rather play the Lego Star Wars games wich are so infinitely better in every single way, if you're a fan of the show, I don't know, just skip it, or rent it if you really, REALLY want to play it for a few minutes before you realize how terrible it actually is. But hey, Jar Jar Binks, who has appeared on the show, isn't in the game, at least not outside of the cutscenes, I skipped most of them.
