EPISODE IV A NEW HOPE
It is a period of civil war. Rebel spaceships, striking from a hidden base, have won their first victory against the evil Galactic Empire. During the battle, Rebel spies managed to steal secret plans to the Empire's ultimate weapon, the Death Star, an armored space station with enough power to destroy an entire planet. Pursued by the Empire's sinister agents, Princess Leia races home aboard her starship, custodian of the stolen plans that can save her people and restore freedom to the galaxy.

--From the NES Star Wars instruction manual.

This game, although not an award winning piece, is worth playing. The graphics, although not the best, are a good size and look smooth. The sounds and music score are pretty good, though. The game-play varies from platform to first person pilot. You'll probably have to practice to get the feel of these. The storyline is kinda silly because they strayed from the movie that it's supposed to be based on. You have to rescue people like Obi Wan, R2, and 3PO from different systems. You do blow up the Death Star at the end though. This game is a lot of fun for anybody who likes Star Wars or video games that involve differetn types of gameplay.

Star Wars The Arcade Game (Coleco)
This game is Star Wars... and really I could end this review right there. Already I have convinced thousands to play it. The title alone would send chills down most nerds' spines. Really, this is one of the best Colecovision games ever, practically a perfect port of an already insanely popular and wildly addictive Arcade title. It was one of the first games in the Golden Age of Gaming to use vector graphics, and with Star Wars, really there was no other way to go.

This game took what is great about the dog fights in the movie and managed to squeeze it into the home with some ingenuity. No other game had attempted and succeeded at this feat. Getting to take the roll of the great Luke Skywalker is enough to make this game enjoyable for Star Wars fans. Shooting down TIE Fighters, Darth Vader, Turrets and the almighty Death Star is even more reason! The game play is tight for its generation, and surprisingly the mechanics of this game work very well. I found it amazing that a game in the first person perspective from the mid-80's worked so well and so smoothly. Your aiming will actually be precise and your X-Wing easy to control, you'll be very pleased. Going through each part of the game adds a whole new challenge and feels like a whole other game for its time. This game is a must play to see inspiration for future titles, and in some cases paved the way for new technologies in graphics and showed developers they can go out on a limb and actually produce a great game.

The graphics in this game use vector graphics, a relatively new technology in gaming at the time. They add to the futuristic feel of Star Wars and kind of make you feel you are looking through a digitized visor throughout the game! You'll also see some hidden messages throughout the Waves that are in vector graphics. Those are some neat easter eggs. Thankfully, unlike some other games using the same graphics of the time, you will actually be able to determine where you are facing, who's shooting, and where enemies and boundaries are. All the graphics are very pleasing, keeping the game in its Star Wars action state. They are just barely toned down from its Arcade counterpart.

Sound-wise this game is again pretty darn good for its era. Though they did rip some of the digitized voices from the game that were in the actual arcade version, the bullets and ship noises are still existent and will keep you in the game still feeling like you are actually piloting the X-Wing. No noises sound too unclear or ridiculous, no high whines, fuzzy scratchy noises, it just sounds like a cheaper sound effect. This is simply where the game differs from the Arcade, Graphics and Sound, but game-play stays the same!

This game has very little flaws. After a while it may become tiresome or redundant to a few, which may be its one flaw. Sometimes it will take a bit to get used to flying on the harder waves, and keep in mind, since you're piloting, the Y-axis is reversed. Meaning Up = Down and Down = Up! As a whole this game is, as I said at the beginning, one of the best Colecovision games and arguably the best movie tie-in game ever. Definitely play this game to experience what you may have missed and to see where the games of today gained so much inspiration and expectations from.

Star Wars The Arcade Game shoots down 9 TIE Fighters out of 10!
