Dude, are you serious??? They dropped the price b/c of Brothers in Arms. When it goes to $0.99 then pick it up just to demo the iphone or IPT to nubbies.

I'd wait until it gets to $4 or so.

I wouldn't plan on buying it at all if I were you. It really isn't anything like what you'd expect. It's an honest to goodness piece of crap :P

Ok..its not new but, I just finished this game...and i need to vent.


Ive played the DS and Wii versions and loved those versions...cos you can use the friggin lightsaber and slice mutha's up. As you would..!

I was hoping for a fun little jaunt like that on the iphone, and dont get me wrong...the whole 'force moves = touch gestures' thing is cool but..i didnt realise it would sum up the entire gameplay.
BUT:
The worst part for me wasnt the repetition but the complete omission of major chunks of the story and the complete rubbish they fill in the gaps with! This game is nothing without its story, on any platform! I mean...didnt anyone at lucas arts actually check the continuity of the different adaptions of this story when they licensed it out? What the hell!
I want my money back.
I want my time back.
Ive never played a star wars game that made me feel ripped off before!!!
I guess theres always a first for everything.

AVOID THIS GAME...dont get drawn in by the slick appearance and novel appeal. Ugh..

I should have read the reviews first.

Game's not that good. $2-4 would be about right.

The Wii version sucked incredibly. The lightsaber never went in the right direction, the force push was glitchy, and they used the same environments over and over again. I probably fought in the Jedi Temple a good 7 times. The graphics... ugh, it's a Wii, but Metroid Prime and SMG were incredibly. Now the PS3 and Xbox version... B-E-A-uuutiful.

But even compared to the total flop that was TFU for Wii, the iPhone version is simply a port found on a bunch of other non-smart phones. My LG Dare had the exact same game. I wasted like $8 on it. Even for 99c, it's a rip-off.
