    This came out today for the XBOX, and all I can find on the web is "Previews". Has anyone seen a review or has anyone here bought it and could share their impressions of the game?

    The fact that it's on the shelf & all you can find is previews is usually a warning sign....

    I'm wrong, Kelley's right. They just announced it'd gone gold, ship 'early next week'.

    Um, I just saw it on the shelf at my Best Buy.

    They had only 1 copy left. It came in this morning.

    GamePro gave it 2.5 out of 5. Though they write some of the worst reviews these days. Much to short and they never give you any real impression of the game. I'm gonna wait and see what Gamespot gives it.

    I think it's pretty safe to assume the game sucks. Like Jedi Powerbattles under a different name.

    Brad,

    You must have played a different game than I did. Jedi Power Battles was excellent game on the Dreamcast. There is no argument that the PS1 version of the game was atrocious. Graphically it was terrible, controls were non-existant and you couldnt even try two player because you would fall off a ledge for no reason.

    The Dreamcast verson rectified all these issues. Controls were responsive. 2 player was a blast. Graphically it was not the best the Dreamcast could do but it was no slouch. It went from an f title in my book to about a b on the DC. If Obi-wan is anything like Jedi-Power battles for the DC Ill be happily picking it up!

    I will be waiting for reviews from sites like IGN and Gamspot.
