This first port from the Nintendo 64 is a total success, and if this is only the first of a series, I really look forward to see what the future will bring. Not only does the game run faster, but on the tricky jumps and narrow platforms, It's the only way to achieve pixel-perfect accuracy. The game's complexity will be appreciated even by the pickiest players. More run-n-gun action leads to a hidden fortress in the Imperial City where Leia is being held captive.
