Based upon the movie of the same name, Star Wars: Episode II: Attack of the Clones chronicles the fate of three Jedi as they attempt to foil a sinister scheme that will ultimately determine the fate of the galaxy. Players will guide Padawan Anakin Skywalker, Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Jedi Master Mace Windu through 12 levels, from Tatooine to Geonosis. Gameplay is in two distinct styles: side scrolling combat and vehicle chases. The combat levels require players to make their way through enemy-infested areas armed with a lightsaber and Force powers (Force Jump, Force Push, and Super Force Push). The Force power meter automatically regenerates, however, power-ups can be collected that increase the amount of Force power your Jedi is capable of wielding. A smattering of jumping elements is sprinkled throughout the decidedly combat-focused stages.
Each Jedi is capable of performing a wide array of offensive techniques, including a variety of lightsaber slashes, kicks, and even the ability to repel enemy laser fire. The second mode puts players in the seat of a Republic Gunship, a Speeder, and even a Jedi Starfighter as they attempt to chase down villains, such as Zam Wesell, Jango Fett, and Count Dooku. Interspersed with the game's levels are digitized, still cut-scenes taken directly from the movie, accompanied by text, which explains the storyline. A password save is used to record your in-game progress. ~ Gavin Frankle, All Game Guide
