Star Wars Episode I Phantom Menace (PS1)

Postby VideoGameCritic » May 8th, 2021, 11:08 am

I feel like it's the season for Star Wars, so pulled out the old Phantom Menace. I was originally very disappointed with this one, but as usual like to take a look back.

I like how this game follows the movie, and exploring all the exotic environments is fun. The overhead view features a lot of very detailed scenery - good lighting too.

The game falters in terms of combat. It feels clumsy and unsatisfying. The force is kind of weak - like you can only push one battle droid at a time!

And the dialog scenes are the worst, having to flip through a bunch of questions just to figure out how to proceed.

Anybody else play this?

I played it a long time ago and I remember not being very impressed. Jedi Power Battles on the Dreamcast is a ton better for a Star wars game.
