Excellent remake

For those complaining about the controls, it's a first-person shooter. WASD and all that. You can customise them, too. I had this game before it came out on the Mac, and I'm happy to have it back. I've had zero problems running it. As far as graphics are concerned, they're faithful to the original. I loved playing this on a certain other operating system (whose name we won't disgrace the App Store with, but its dev's initials are M$), and now that I have it on my Mac, life is good. I just wish other game developers would do some Mac development! (*cough*bethsoft*cough*)

Over all, great game. If you're having some issues with the lightsaber fights, try holding down the mouse button for several attacks in a row, and move around at the same time, while keeping your crosshairs on your opponent. Hit both mouse buttons at the same time for a fun-to-watch (but honestly useless) move. And don't forget to use force speed in a fight - it's almost, but not quite, an "I win" button.

Great Remake. Very Smooth

I have a mid-2009 macbook running on OSX Yosemite and this game works like a charm. What’s even better is that I can use a PS3 controller connected via USB to play with this game. For all those who are complaining about the controls, your complaints have no basis since there are alternatives that can be used. Personally, I prefer a console control for my games, so I went the route of getting an application available through the app store that allows you to use your XBOX 360/PS3/PS4 controllers on a game with custom controls that you make. Sure, it takes a while to map out the controls, but it’s worth it.

The application that I used is called JOYSTICK MAPPER by Chibata Creations, it costs about 4.99 which is a steal. It can be used as an alternative to the standard mouse and keyboard setup. Hope you guys see this because it really helped me.

awesome game

This is a great game there are no drawback no regrets and it is a must have. DO NOT listen to the bad reviews, if the controls are confusing like everyone is complaining about, all you have to do is go to options and hit the cotrol settings. then just change the controls to the keys where you r comftorable and can access everything. i put these directions in for the new people and for those who cant figure the controls. now back to the main. i love the fact that the storyline is really on the mark and the customizable lightsaber options. the BEST part is the lightsaber duels are very realistic and non of that "owww i dont wanna hurt anyone or move too much" lazy stuff that other games have. you just slash and interact and choose dark or light or both. thank you very much and have a great day.
