"Be seduced by the power of the Dork Side," reads the cover of Star Warped. For a diehard Star Wars follower and a fan of satire in general, this game represents the best of both worlds. From Mad Magazine parodies, to Hardware Wars and Weird Al's "Yoda" song; no Star Wars parody has ever been as entertaining as much as Star Warped.
The main reason for this is that there's just so much here to do. Whacking the Ewoks is not only a great idea, but also incredibly fun. "Death Star Destructo" lets you utilize the Death Star's superlaser to destroy everything from Luke's cut-off hand to Leia's bikini top to plush Ewoks. Hilarious!
Perhaps the most hilarious was the "Scrapped Scripts" section. If your not into Woody Allen movies his scripts may not be too much fun, but the Spike Lee, Quentin Tarantino and Jerry Seinfeld versions had me rolling!
Then there's the fighting game that you can play with rejected action figures. Cool Handless Luke (GREAT name!) can shoot blood from his cut-off hand at Leia-I Joe and her deadly hair buns or Pizza-Flippin' Greedo and his killer dough.
The "U Don't No Jedi" portion, featuring Star Wars trivia in the You Don't Know Jack style, was fantastic! They even had funny jingles in between questions like in YDKJ! ("I'd like to have sex with Princess Leia / Until then, it Question Three-ah.")
"The Time Machine" provides an interesting look at some of our favorite characters in various stages of their lives, which can be quite funny as well. "The Ranch Cam" lets us spy on what's going down at Lucasfilm. Don't get your hopes up, though. Instead of overhearing scoopable info, we usually just see those crazy Lucasfilm people declaring how much better Star Wars is than Star Trek and similar things.
Games within Star Warped aside, it's fun just to check out the rooms of two guys whose lives totally revolve around the Holy Trilogy. They've got some really interesting, creative things just to look at.
If there's one thing not to like about this game as a whole, it is the relative exclusion of everyone's favorite bounty hunter, Boba Fett. He appears in Spike Lee's script for one scene and is part of a brief "shocking revelation" in "Dork Forces" ... but that's it!
So if you're a Star Wars fan, this one is definitely worth a try. To borrow a line from Hardware Wars, "May the Farce be with you!"
Graphics: Though cartoony, the graphics are excellent. No skipping or jerky movements here.
Sound: Aaron and Brian both have clear and distinctive voices, the music is good (considering they can't legally use John Williams'), and there are some pretty funny noises all around. At times, though, you may have trouble hearing when the brothers are talking at the same time.
Enjoyment: No serious Star Wars fan with a sense of humor should be alive and not own this game. Even non-SW aficionados should enjoy it.
Replay Value: The game kind of lacks here. Since the game is all based on comedy, the first time you see it is when it will be the best. You will come back to it eventually, though.
