Super Star Wars is the hit game that became one of the best selling games for the Super NES. The graphics and sound are excellent for a game released only 2 years after the original release of the snes. The controls are a bit jerky, though, which can lead to frustration on levels that require precision jumping. Besides the side scrolling action levels, there are also levels that let you command the hovercraft and X-Wing.
