General Grievous tried to trap some Jedi in ‘Grievous Intrigue’, but they managed to escape again – let’s see how he fared in trapping the viewers of Star Wars: The Clone Wars:
- IGN liked the more complex nature of Grievous shown here, and gave it a 9 out of 10.
- TheForce.Net enjoyed the Obi-wan/Grievous rivalry and the spectacular lightsaber duels.
- SWCloneWarsReviews gave it 3/5 stars, calling it fun and enjoyable, but pointing out almost some boredom with Grievous-style lightsaber combat and the lack of tension caused by “we know these people all survive to Episode III” syndrome.
- Dauntless Media liked the kinetic, intense action, and calling the episode a visual feast, but without depth — and the episode being poorly named.
- Big Shiny Robot loved the commando droids and calls the episode “preposterously well animated action.”
