Greetings, today's #gameoftheday
goes to what I believe is a forgettable game, Star Wars: Jedi Power Battles for the PlayStation 1. Released in mid 2000, this game is a Star Wars themed beat 'em up and hack 'n' slash game with some elements of puzzle solving and platforming thrown in as well. The game's story loosely follows along the plot of The Phantom Menace, and I do mean loosely. It may feature some settings and locations seen in the film but when you're playing as characters not seen in the film, its definitely taking liberties with the source material. You can choose to play as one of five playable Jedi characters including Obi-Wan, Mace Windu, Qui-Gon Jinn and two secondary characters seen briefly from the prequel trilogy. I haven't played this game in many many years, but I remember playing it back in the day and thinking it was subpar at best. I actually prefer the Phantom Menace PS1 tie-in game over this game if you can believe that. The game feels broken in many spots and the fact that it's PS1 graphics makes it choppy as hell. Now a few months later it was ported to the Sega Dreamcast where it was polished with better enhanced graphics, smoother controls and many bug fixes that were prevalent in this PS1 version. I found this game dirt cheap and I figured it's worth picking up to stroll down memory lane. Basically all I can say is it's a forgettable title for a reason, out of the slew of other Star Wars based video games, this one just doesn't stand out from the rest and is forever associated with Episode 1, the biggest letdown in cinema history. If you really want to play this, I say pick up the Dreamcast version, but otherwise skip this PS1 edition and go play Phantom Menace instead, which is a sentence I never thought I'd say.
