The Completionist Edit

Jirard reviewed Super Star Wars for the 156th episode of The Completionist, in celebration of the release of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.

Jirard praises the game for its faithfulness to the source material, as well as the graphics. Though he does have a problem with some of the Tatooine levels, as they look samey. He also considers the sidescrolling gameplay solid despite stiff jumping, and appreciates the ability to play as Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Chewbacca. He also appreciates the weapon upgrades. However, the game’s difficulty annoys him. With a lack of completion bonus, Jirard recommends playing the game on normal.

The video ends with a cryptic advertisement for “Power Overwhelming.” This turned out to be the debut album of Big Bad Bosses, a video game themed boy band starring Jirard as Bowser, Alex as Dr. Eggman, Satch Bag as Ganondorf, and Nate Wants To Battle as Sephiroth. It also stars video game music composer Jake Kaufman.
