When I think about Star Wars: The Clone Wars Video Game I get extremely nostalgic, it wasn’t the greatest game ever made but the memories I have from it are. I played this game a whole lot when I was younger with all my friends, this game just makes me remember some serious good times.
Now I’ve got to be honest I don’t remember much of the story, all I know is that the game takes place near the very end of Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones because I remember the first level starting off in the First Battle of Geonosis. Also in the campaign of the game you switched from playing as Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin and Mace Windu.
This game was pretty damn awesome, the only thing I didn’t like too much about it is that most of the game had you driving a vehicle or riding on these weird dinosaurs like creatures. Now I’ve got to be brutally honest, I dislike games where the gameplay focuses more on driving vehicles, but there are exceptions like Mario Kart and Diddy Kong Racing.
I’d go into full detail of the single player mode but I can’t remember a whole lot about it, what I usually played was the multi-player with my brother and best friends. The game mode was called The Academy Training Game, it was one to four players and it was to test your skills on several waves on enemies until you die. There were only two levels to choose from for this game mode each were extremely different for one had you play as Jedi in the Geonosis arena, ever since I first saw that movie that scene blew me away and to play a game where it allowed me to play in the Geonosis arena and kick droid ass made me extremely happy. The other level was The Thule Academy but it was a survival but in vehicles instead which was alright, but like I said not my cup of tea.
The Genosis arena is where we spent most of our time playing, me my brother and my two best friends would play that so many times, trying to see if there was an actual end to, the none stop coming waves of droids. No matter how many times we tried, we just couldn’t live through the mass amount of waves and enemies. Trust me we did get very far but we just never reached the end, though it makes me wonder is there really an end to it all?
