When I played the game it seemed so much different from the original. It had all the same basic things in it but it seemed like they tried to make the graphics "finer". I liked it better when the colors seemed more bold and together. Another thing was the Jedi option isn't as great as I expected (but it is a good thing they don't control the game).
Besides those issues the game is still fun. It took me about 20 minutes to get used to it but now I am really into it. I love the Space battles (I just won my first one )
