    YES!!!! Episode III is finally released! After watching Episode 
    III and loving it, (enough to see it three times) I decided to 
    purchase the game. Although painfully short the game does feature 
    a number of bonus modes, one of these being versus mode, here I 
    will teach you the secrets of this great feature. By the way if 
    you want to find something specific (such as Darth Vader) just 
    press ctrl+f and type what you seek and press enter.
    Okay here are some basic things which you WILL need to learn to 
    become not only a decent duelist but an effective one too. If 
    only this game was online....
    1.	Learn to use block effectively, I cannot say that enough, 
    very important.
    2.	MASTER THE ART OF SABER SHUNT!!!! This is the most 
    important thing overall, this move breaks combos and leaves 
    the opponent open. Saber Trap Shunt is not as good as Saber 
    Shunt, as it repels the attack, whereas saber shunt repels 
    the attack and leaves your opponent open.
    3.	Master your chosen characters special moves, knowing when 
    to use these powers is crucial as some can pay off, big-
    4.	Learn to use the combat skills obtained in leveling up in 
    the main game with Anakin and Obi-Wan so as to defeat your 
    opponent swiftly.
    5.	Some Force powers (lightning, saber throw, stun) leave your 
    opponent open for a very small amount of time. If you are 
    close to them and block you will have time to attack.
    6.	Remember, you are vulnerable whilst strafing, do not strafe 
    when you are sure you will dodge out of the way. Make use 
    of the strafe attack (done by pressing square during 
    strafe), this will end combos and attack the enemy with 
    blinding speed.
    One of the essential parts of this mode, the characters listed 
    here are among the most well-known Star Wars characters, however 
    you might find some new ones.
    Anakin Skywalker
    Jedi Knight
    Alternate Costume: Darth Vader pre-suit, this costume is 
    Anakin with his Jedi robes on, hood up, he also carries a red 
    Light Saber to distinguish himself from his Jedi Counterpart.
    Fighting style: Fast and powerful, Anakin does long flashy combos 
    that decimate his opponents.
    Special Attacks
    Fury Whirlwind: Hold L> + Triangle
    Fury Explosion: Hold Triangle
    Fury Corkscrew: Hold L> + Square
    Fury Sai Bomb: Press X hold Triangle
    Rating: 4 out of 5
    I love Anakin as he has decent power, long combos and is fast to 
    not only fight but recover too.
    Vs. Anakin
    Anakin as an opponent will generally attack with fast quick 
    combos whilst mixing in force powers and strafing. Don't give 
    Anakin room to use his combos and Shunt him as much as 
    possible. Anakin will also heal during the fight here and there.
    Obi-Wan Kenobi
    Jedi Master
    Alternate Costume: Obi-Wan dons his Jedi Robes and has a green 
    Light Saber to separate himself from his normal costume.
    Fighting Style: Fast and Graceful, Obi-Wan is much like Anakin 
    without the forceful strikes.
    Special Attacks
    Focus Shockwave: Hold L> + Triangle
    Focus Slash Combo: Hold Triangle
    Focus Lunge Strike: Hold L> + Square
    Focus Sai Bomb: Press X Hold Triangle
    Rating: 4 out of 5
    Obi-Wan is also a great character as he is faster than Anakin and 
    has okay power.
    Vs. Obi-Wan
    Obi's a defensive player to be sure; he LOVES to strafe attack 
    interrupting you no matter what you're doing. The best way to 
    defeat Obi-Wan is too shunt him and lay waste to him. Watch out 
    for his fast attacks and they are really quick.
    Count Dooku
    Sith Lord
    Alternate Costume: Dooku once more embraces the blue Light Saber.
    Fighting Style: The classic "fencing" style which use strokes and 
    swishes to combat.
    Special Moves
    Force Lightning Explosion: Hold Triangle
    Whirlwind Strike: Hold Square
    Electric Toss: Press Square + Triangle Then Triangle
    Clearing Spin: Square, Square Triangle + Square
    Rating: 5 out of 5
    Dooku is an excellent fighter; his style is great and easy to use 
    against the enemy. His specials are also quite good and effective 
    to use. Dooku can also link his fast and slow attack combos 
    together repeatedly, a big bonus.
    Vs. Dooku
    Surprisingly, the computer does not use Dooku's great potential 
    as a duelist. Dooku will often use throws to hurt you so strafe 
    when he attempts to grapple if you can. Saber shunts can easily 
    defeat him.
    Mace Windu
    Jedi Master
    Alternate Costume: Mace Windu in his Jedi Knight days, Mace wears 
    a dark robe and uses a blue Light Saber.
    Fighting Style: An aggressive and fast two handed fighting style.
    Special Moves
    Force Clear Out: Hold Square
    Force Charge: Hold Triangle
    Back Kick Flip: Square + Triangle press Square
    Launching Uppercut: Square, Square, L> + Triangle
    Rating: 2 out of 5
    While he has quick fast attacks, Mace's slow attacks are really 
    predictable and easily-countered. He also lacks power and is an 
    average duelist.
    Vs. Mace Windu
    When you fight Mace you will notice he is particularly aggressive 
    and attacks repeatedly, this is where Saber Shunt comes in handy, 
    if you keep using saber shunt Mace will fall quickly.
    Serra Keto
    Jedi Knight
    Alternate Costume: Serra wears black leather and uses two red 
    Light Sabers.
    Fighting Style: Dual Sabers! Serra Keto is a new character in the 
    Star Wars universe. Serra uses quick acrobatic-like moves to 
    overwhelm her enemies.
    Special Attacks
    Dual Saber Toss: Hold Square
    Force Swirl: Hold Triangle
    Kick Flip Launch: Square + Triangle, Triangle
    Clearing Slam: Square, Square Triangle + Square
    Rating: 3 out of 5
    Serra's style is wild and unpredictable, however some of here 
    combos are slow and flashy, giving the opponent time to strike 
    back and cause damage. Her specials are quite effective when it 
    comes to dismantling the enemy, dual saber toss especially.
    Vs. Serra Keto
    Serra's wild style can occasionally put you off if you're not 
    ready for her attacks. The best thing to do is shunt her attacks 
    and absolutely waste her.
    Cin Drallig
    Jedi Master
    Alternate Costume: Cin adorns black robes and uses a red Light 
    Saber, very Sith-like.
    Fighting Style: Swift and powerful strikes.
    Special Moves
    1000 Slashes: Hold Square
    Double Force Blast: Hold Triangle
    Clearing Slam: Triangle + Square
    Five Point Strike: Square + Triangle, Square
    Rating: 5 out of 5
    Cin is like a mix of Obi-Wan and Anakin; he has Obi-Wans grace and 
    Anakin's power, a very effective mix. Cin's special attacks are 
    very good too; they do good damage and are quick.
    Vs. Cin
    Cin is an absolute beast when fighting him; he is quick, 
    ferocious and cunning. He can easily beat you in a few short 
    combos if you're not careful. His fast strikes are sometimes hard 
    to shunt and so when you do shunt use it to pull of a special and 
    do considerable damage.
    Ben Kenobi
    Jedi Master
    Alternative Costume: Same as Obi-Wan, Ben wears has a green Light 
    Saber and no hood.
    Fighting Style: A fast nimble style with good damage.
    Special Attacks
    Saber Bump: Square + Triangle
    Force Shockwave: Hold L> + Triangle
    Clearing Slam: Square, Square Triangle + Square
    Force Submission: Hold L1 + Circle + Square
    Rating: 4 out of 5
    Ben Kenobi's quick combos and decent damage allow you to dish out 
    pain without getting hurt. His moves are good for getting 
    distance from the enemy. One quality that shines with Ben is his 
    potency with the force, his heal, stun and saber throw all seem 
    to have more effect than other peoples.
    Vs. Ben Kenobi
    Ben's mastery of the light side and his quick attacks allow him 
    to heal and wail in on you with lots of power. Remember to shunt 
    and keep close to him so when he heals you can strike him down.
    Darth Vader
    Sith Lord
    Alternative Costume: Vader opts to fight with a blue Saber.
    Fighting Style: REALLY POWERFUL but slow attacks.
    Special Attacks
    Force Choke: Square + Triangle
    Fury Slam: Hold L> + Triangle
    Clearing Spin: Square, Square Triangle + Square
    Backhand Lunge: Hold L> + Circle
    Rating: 5 out of 5
    The Dark Lord of the Sith does not disappoint, although slow and 
    cumbersome, Vader attacks and easily beat your opponent within a 
    minute. One slow attack combo can take a quarter of a life bar!!! 
    His special Force Choke is also very cool.
    Vs. Darth Vader
    Keep on your toes at all times! Vader's major weakness is his 
    slow attacks, which you should shunt and attack like hell. Vader 
    can easily come back from losing with a few slow attacks. Watch 
    for his special and never let him touch you!
    General Grievous
    Droid Commander
    Alternative Costume: Grievous is a blue shade and wields four red 
    Light Sabers.
    Fighting Style
    Grievous actually has two styles, his default Dual Saber style 
    and his four Light Saber style.
    Special Attacks
    Force Clear Out: Hold Triangle
    Four Arm Mode: Press L2
    Fire Blaster: Press R1
    3 Variation Charge-Up: Hold R2
    Rating: 4 out of 5-Dual Sabers
    Rating: 5 out of 5-Four Sabers
    Grievous is THE powerhouse to end all powerhouses when in four 
    arm mode. The thing that hits you first is how different Grievous 
    is compared to the other duelists, he cannot command the force, 
    he has two styles, his specials are shoulder buttons etc. 
    Grievous is often best used when you repeatedly attack, use his 
    tricks to undermine the enemy and wail in on him with Four Arm 
    Vs. Grievous
    Grievous is easily the most powerful, tenacious, ferocious and 
    ruthless enemy you will face, he will attack constantly and will 
    give you NO room to react, he will keep attacking you till? he 
    wins, and because he CANNOT be shunted, you should always fight 
    him in spacious areas. It is best to use Guerilla Warfare, by 
    running in when he finishes his combo from afar and absolutely 
    laying waste to him and running away when you're done. While 
    Grievous may seem cheap because of his abilities, he cannot shunt 
    YOU, balancing him out. Do not let him back you into a corner or 
    you can kiss the round goodbye.
    Temple Training Room
    This is a pretty good arena considering it's the one you start of with.
    It's a wide area with plenty too Force Grasp and throw at your opponent.
    Be aware that you can force grasp your opponents into the statues and use 
    heads that fall of the statues and use them as projectiles.
    Throne Room Main Chamber
    The main problem with this stage is that not as big as it's single player
    counterpart. It's a very small area, which means that either player doesn't
    have much space to move or heal, meaning you will have to buckle down on
    your opponent and beat him without getting back in to a corner with no space
    to breath. 
    Throne Room Upper Balcony
    Awesome Arena, this place is littered with stuff tto throw your opponent
    into and cause serious damage, but beware the same happening to you. If your
    losing just grasp your opponent and throw them into the "props" of the level.
    Utapau Sinkhole Control Room
    An avarage sized area in which to fight, it does have a few things you can
    hurl at your opponents but not as many as you'd hope.
    Utapau Sinkhole Landing Platform
    A nice little arena where there quite a few things to throw at your
    opponent. Use these to your advantage.
    Palpatine's Office
    A nice spacious arena, in these area you can hit the some of the central 
    architechture to create a enviromental hazard in which you can throw your
    opponent into to cause them some major damage, but be careful that your 
    opponent does not use this against you.
    Palpatine's Office Docking Bay
    A very wide area to duel in, this arena is good for duelling with Grievous
    as the is plenty of space to use against him.
    Temple Control Room
    An interesting place to be sure, not only does it have an eviromental 
    hazard in the center of the room, but this room is littered with diced up clone 
    troopers, giving you plenty of projectiles for you to launch at your 
    opponent. Make sure that you do not use force push without using all the
    clone troopers parts.
    Temple Outer Terrace
    Another good level. Almost anything in this level can be hurled at your
    enemy, the floor, the boundary and the chunks of statues. Use them wisely.
    Mustafar Control Room
    This level is quite spacious with hologram tables on either side of the room,
    you can buy yourself some time against AI opponents, friends are different.
    Mustafar Balcony
    A medium sized arena filled with explosive boxes around the area, use these 
    inflict major damage.
    Mustafar Control Arm
    A long, narrow arena which can make for some really cinematic battles. Be sure 
    to the spires jutting out the sides of the Control arm.
    Mustafar Lava Platform
    A VERY small area which no projectile or hazards. Not recommended for fighting
    Episode IV Death Star
    The scene of the famour battle between Master and Apprentice. Whilst the area
    isn't that big it does have a few projectiles to use.
