Jedi Power Battles lets players explore many of Episode I’s key locations, but with the Jedi of their choice. Taking control of Mace Windu and slicing up Trade Federation droids sounds intriguing, but terrible controls, bad graphics, and buggy multiplayer completely kill the fun. The worst, however, were the preset combat animations for each character. When the player’s timing was right, the animations looked pretty good, but if the player missed the first swing of the lightsaber, the animation would still play out, and the player would be forced to sit there, helpless, and wait for it to complete before another attack could be executed. Overall, Jedi Power Battles feels as mediocre as the film upon which it is based.
