The lights are on
Long before Knights of the Old Republic, long before Battlefront, and long before Rogue Squadron, there was Super Star Wars. This first entry in the 2D Star Wars action titles on the SNES was a take no prisoners affair that liberally altered the events of the classic trilogy. Only pure fans with freshly washed Ewok bedsheets, a replica lightsaber at their side, and a well-worn Yoda plushie could possibly endure such punishing gameplay. Asking who is the biggest Star Wars fan in the Game Informer office is kind of like asking which prequel is the worst, but how long do we last with Super Star Wars?
UPDATE: Here's the link to the funny video we mention in the Replay
Join Jeff Cork, Ben Reeves, Andrew Reiner, and myself as we voyage from Tatooine (so much Tatooine!) to the Death Star. We encounter tons of recognizable foes, and even more menaces that never graced the films. Why do sarlacs change so much, and since when are Jawas so aggressive? Thankfully, we've got a set of trusty codes to keep things moving this time as we marvel at this piece of 16-bit Star Wars history.

Nice choice for Replay. I'm sure its gonna be great!
After the high of last week's discovery of the dusting easter egg in the Boogerman credits, the text scrolling before Super Star Wars' credits just didn't excite me as much as it excited Ben.
"Adam Clayton from U2?!"
gunstar replay or super replay would be great
ARRGGGG, I WANTED TO GO TO Dick'S HOUSE!
Super Star Wars looks terrible.
Please do Go! Go! Hypergrind.
If you guys want to know the Death Star's size there's no official word from George Lucas but fans have done some measurements based on shots from the movies and have generally estimated the Death Star to be about 120 kilometers in height and 130 kilometers in width. I don't know who had the time to figure that out but it seems to be the accepted estimate.
Awww, rthat looked painful.
I looked it up and Maui Mallard is indeed, Donald Duck.
great replay guys that star wars game looked like it could be a pain without 100 lives and skipping every level. and i remeber that game! i used to play it when i was little compltly forgot how fun that was
I used to have star wars! And yes I actually beat it. It looks so horrible now.
Great episode as always.
The Star Wars game was pretty terrible, but I remember playing numerous similar games when I was younger. All of the random enemies and levels tells you George Lucas didn't check up on that one.
The second game was pretty impressive visually. I like animation like that.
STREETS OF RAGE TRILOGY SUPER REPLAY!!!!!! :-)
The SNES Empire Strikes Back is a lot better than Super Star Wars.
Oh Super Star Wars, the bain of my childhood existance. I remember getting into the sand crawler and rage quiting so many times. In fact, I'm not sure i ever got past that part
