Description

The game begins with the Battle of Geonosis, and takes the player through the evacuation of Rhen Var, with the player leading the escape only minutes before the Separatist Army capture the planet.

The squad cards are a really neat addition that will delight diehard fans. Each one contains a different character or vehicle and the Stealth and Assault cards all feature clones, so familiar faces like Commander Gree, Fives, and Echo pop up frequently. We even found ourselves trying to keep cards that featured our favourite troopers. XCOM vibes, anyone? Set during the events of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars television series, the game will task players with defending the Galactic Republic together as Ashoka Tano, Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and other legendary Jedi against the machinations of the Separatist forces.

Asmodee and Z-Man Games recently announced Star Wars: The Clone Wars – A Pandemic System Game (Star Wars Pandemic). This game takes the mechanics from the popular cooperative Pandemic System board games and brings the fun to a galaxy far, far away during the events of the beloved TV series Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Players will take on the roles of famous Jedi like Ahsoka Tano, Anakin Skywalker, and Obi-Wan Kenobi with the aim of defeating the Dark Side’s forces including Count Dooku and Asajj Ventress.

Collection

In Star Wars: The Clone Wars – A Pandemic System Game, players choose from seven Jedi, including Ahsoka Tano and Anakin Skywalker, each with their own unique Force abilities. Across four epic scenarios, the Jedi must team up and defeat a member of the dark side like Count Dooku and General Grievous. Each scenario can be completed using different Jedi powers, squad members, and objectives, adding high replay value to every adventure. Kasavin, Greg (April 24, 2003).

Star Wars: The Clone Wars is a powerful saga of heroes coming together to save the galaxy, and this game is no different," says Z-Man Games head Sophie Gravel in a press release. "Our cooperative Pandemic System helps bring iconic Star Wars characters and stories to life - with our Jedi needing to combine Forces to stand a chance against unending waves of Separatist troops. Players will be on the edge of their seat with every playthrough as they fight for victory… and bring balance to the Force.”

Naturally, basing a board game on The Clone Wars animated series required research for every area of gameplay, from the planets on the galaxy map to the details of the players’ missions. “The first thing I did when I started on the project was to watch the whole series from start to finish to make sure it was fresh in my mind,” Ortloff-Tang says. “Over the course of the project, I ended up rewatching it a bunch of times, both for inspiration and just for entertainment. It was fun to immerse myself in that era.”To finish setup, squads of clone troopers and vehicles are assigned, missions are selected, and the invasion starts. Begun, the Clone Wars have. Rolls of the die determine the amount of successes and damage you take on with each turn. Deploy your squad to complete the parameters on your mission card, and the Separatists lose their ground on that planet. If all players can finish their missions before the invasions overwhelm the Republic forces, everyone wins!

Star Wars and Pandemic??? Did someone just raid my dreams? As you may already know, I love both of these IPs so bought this straight away!! But, did it live up to my expectations? Let’s take a look into Pandemic: Star Wars The Clone Wars! Pandemic Vs Pandemic Star Wars The Clone Wars actually takes place after the events of Episode II, which ended with the eruption of an all-out war between the Galactic Republic and the separatists. In the game, you'll play as Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, and Mace Windu in an effort to help the Republic thwart its adversary. In so doing, you'll uncover a nefarious separatist plot to unleash a devastating weapon against the Republic, which, of course, you'll have to stop. Though the game contains a few on-foot action sequences, most of the time, Obi-Wan, Anakin, and Mace will be fighting from within the heavily armored confines of a number of different vehicles, including a hovertank, a gunship, and a walker. You'll also get to ride on a speederbike, one of those floating STAP things that some of the droids used in Episode I and Episode II, a tough four-legged creature called a maru, and more. All these vehicles--and even the on-foot sequences--make use of roughly the same control scheme, though you do get a pretty good feel for the differences of each vehicle at your disposal, mostly due to their unique special weapons. The game's audio is a predictable assortment of Star Wars effects, especially the nearly nonstop cacophony of your various vehicles' identical-sounding blasters. John Williams' musical score, which blares almost as loudly as the blasters and explosions, perhaps isn't as riveting today as it used to be, but it's still an essential part of the Star Wars formula. The voice acting in The Clone Wars is decent, and even though all the main characters' voices are impersonated, the fakers do a fairly convincing job.The Clone Wars offers four multiplayer modes that can be played with up to four players in a split-screen view, or with up to eight via Xbox Live or the system link feature. Unfortunately, there's no option to play through the campaign cooperatively, which is a bit odd, considering you're often fighting alongside computer-controlled allies anyway. The existing multiplayer modes can be fun, though. Duel is basically a deathmatch mode, allowing players to pit the game's various vehicles--and their skills--against each other. Control zone is sort of a king-of-the-hill mode in which players gradually earn points by occupying a designated area and fending off any would-be usurpers. Conquest, the most popular online variant, is a team-based game that pits the Republic's arsenal against that of the separatists, and it's reminiscent of the Battlezone PC games in its combination of action and strategic elements. You can capture outposts, which in turn build AI-controlled units that you can control using the game's simple command interface. The object is to eventually destroy the other team's base. Finally, Jedi academy is a cooperative survival mode that pits players against wave after wave of enemies. a b Boulding, Aaron (April 22, 2003). "Star Wars: The Clone Wars (Xbox)". IGN. Ziff Davis .

Team up with your friends as legendary Jedi, each with their own unique mastery of the Force to assist in not only combat, but in traversing the galaxy and completing missions. Play as heroes of the Clone Wars saga such as Anakin Skywalker, Ahsoka Tano, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Mace Windu, Yoda, Aayla Secura, and Luminara Undula as you fight off the Separatists while they attempt to gain control of more and more planets.

For Ortloff-Tang and the entire team behind Star Wars: The Clone Wars, creating the game has been an unexpected and wonderful adventure.

The heroes must now hop from planet to planet, defending them from waves of Separatist droids and attempting to thwart the plans of the scenario’s main villain. There are four scenarios to choose from. Depending on which you play, a mini of Count Dooku, Darth Maul, General Grievous, or Asajj Ventress will be causing trouble on the board. a b Kasavin, Greg (October 30, 2002).

Pandemic Vs Pandemic Star Wars Solo rules are becoming more common in board games, and I see it as a great trend,” Ortloff-Tang says. “Solo rules give you the option to engage with the game even if no one else is around. They can also make it easier for a single person to learn a game before introducing it to others. And some people just really love playing board games solo on their own time at their own pace. All good reasons to make the game playable [for] one.” a b Steinberg, Scott (November 28, 2002). "Star Wars: The Clone Wars (PS2, GC)". Maxim. MaximNet, Inc.

One eyesore that will definitely be tough for some gamers to ignore throughout all of this combat is Clone War's unsteady framerate. At best, the game runs at a healthy 30 frames per second, but more often that we'd like, it drops. It never drops to an unplayable level, but when the action gets cooking and your health meter is sinking dangerously low, a choppy framerate will only lead to frustration. Again, some of the more anal gamers in the crowd will find such technical flaws to be unforgivable, but the majority of gamers will simply ignore it and let themselves slip into the fast-paced groove. Here at IGN, we are always aware of such technicalities, but The Clone War's super fun gameplay has us hooked to the point of not getting caught up on it.
