Back to Star Wars please?
Has anyone here ever played the Japanese NAMCO Star Wars game for the Famicom (a.k.a., NES in the US) that was released in 1987?
Don't confuse this with the JVC Star Wars NES game released in 1991.
I hear good things about it.
I have, and at one point made a video walkthrough before I deleted it. That game was hard on easy mode. Only a few lives, with seemingly no way to add to them. No passwords. No continues. Several Vader clones that transform into monsters (quoth the AVGN, "I am your father, and I am also a ****ing scorpion") The only way I was able to beat the game was savestates, and even then I died a couple times.
One thing to note is that the famicom and nes empire strikes back games are the same, the only real difference being the ladder has japanese text.
I'd love to see an anime (or even better, toku) adaption of the famicom star wars game.
I played that game myself some time ago. It was funny, more like a Star Wars parody, and it gives a sense of adventure and freedom (in using Force Powers and... getting lost :D ). Also, guess who gets a medal: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_TG3BEHdRHI&feature=youtu.be&t=2238

Star Wars is again reduced to mindless action sequences. "It wouldn't be Star Wars without epic space battles." So where is the epic space battle of Empire?
I'd even say the first "epic" space battle was the one in Jedi, since that's the first one with capital ships on both sides. The dogfights around the first Death Star are intense, but for me they don't qualify as "epic".
I don't know if the Falcon's chase sequences are "epic", but I'd like to watch more of them. Funny thing is that they aren't great because of the special effects, but because of their impressive visuals.
P.S.: I found ROTJ's space battles boring. Thankfully, they didn't last as much as in AOTC...
