Beginning with the decision to select between the roles of Anakin, Obi-Wan or Mace Windu, players subsequently take their forces through 16 campaigns, spanning six expansive Star Wars worlds. From the desolate ruins of Rhen Var to the treetop cities of Kashyyyk, immense battles must be fought in order to prevent the Confederacy from reassembling an ancient Sith weapon of mass destruction.

As all you Star Wars fanatics will be hoping, Clone Wars contains a mass of popular locations, vehicles and characters from the drawing boards of the Episode II production team. Certain objectives throughout the game allow the player to change vehicles during battle and pilot an array of units from the Republic's arsenal, including a speeder bike, AT-SX assault walker, fighter tank, and a Republic gunship. A total of 30 unique combat units are available.

Conquest is a unique blend of action and strategy that challenges two teams try to destroy each other's home base.

If you'd taken the decision to wait until now rather than invest in a GameCube then your patience has been rewarded. Clone Wars has finally made it to the PS2 - it's been worth the wait.
