As I told you last week in general I’m not a huge fan of movie tie-ins. Even this game received mixed reviews, as frequently happens with movie-based games, especially when the movie is a success. However, considering the horse power of the humble Atari 2600 and its limitation, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back is a rather decent game. Maybe dull, maybe repetitive, but hey, that’s Atari, a game that last more than 5 minutes is a rarity!
