Videogamer writes: "That's Darth Vader. Right there, on screen, standing at the entrance to a village on the wookie planet Kashyyyk. Big, imposing, stalking, Vader stands out like a sore thumb against the lush green vegetation and giant brown tree trunks. And he's under our control.
With pad in hand (we've played both the PS3 and 360 versions of the game), we use the thumb sticks to move Vader, slowly, and pan the camera around to get a decent view of what LucasArts reckons will be the greatest Star Wars game ever.
We experience mixed emotions. Firstly, pure delight, pure Star Wars fanboy excitement. Here is Vader, perhaps the coolest science fiction character ever conceived, with lightsaber in hand and more Force powers than even the great Yoda could hope to wield. But then our gibbering exuberance is tempered somewhat by another, strange emotion - confusion. This should be one of the greatest moments in our gaming lives, and while it rocks, it's also, well, pretty weird."
