Reviewed on 2004-11-22
Attention span: 10/10 Very addicting.
Controls: 9/10 Use 2nd as a select key instead.
Implementation: 9/10 Great AI, but could be smaller.
Overall: 10/10 RECOMMENDED DOWNLOAD!

Star Wars Othello is, as the title states, Star Wars Othello. Compared to the traditional game of Othello, it is exactly the same. You are one color tile, the computer is the other. You each take turns placing tiles down on the 10x10 board in attempt to trap each other's tiles between yours, changing their face color to yours. The player at the end with the most tiles at the end is the winner. The game also provides you with every available move possible. SW Othello is different in that the computer takes the role of a Star Wars character. It's a creative effort, but the result in the game is that the computer is strikingly human. The game mimics human behavior when playing games, such as pauses for periods of thinking, and so forth. What this does is take the game to a new level in gaming. I never beat the AI in ten games, and I play it all the time regularly. However, the AI takes up a huge amount of memory. That's the game's only downfall, with a minor key switch necessary from Enter to 2nd to select. But overall, it's great game.
