  1. It has wonderful atmosphere, and wonderful graphics, but the gameplay just isn't as strong as it should be, especially for a rail shooter. Also, the enemy patterns are not very well crafted.
  2. The graphics system works, not too well, but every level is playable and enjoyable if it weren’t for having to start over completely after each life.
  3. Thanks to the poor controls and the fact that the levels seem to drag on forever, Flight of the Falcon just feels like a very forced and flawed experienced from the very start.
  4. Where Flight of the Falcon goes wrong is in trying to make the GBA display 3D environments for an entire game.
  5. The game is hampered by very bad laggy gameplay that seems like in some of the game levels (mostly all of them) it is running at 5 fps.

    A neck-stabbingly frustrating bore. [Apr 2004, p.86]
  7. Not even the most hardcore Star Wars fans should go anywhere near this game. [Spring 2004, p.47]

    Its an Awesome game, and lives up to the Star Wars name, but as far as flight capability it bites. I like a Challenge to, but this game has no difficulty setting, and It took me 30 minutes to beat the 2nd level. Thank Goodness for cheats. Expand

    This could be worse. however, that would be pretty hard. Although, for a gba game the graphics were ok, i was expecting better.

    As a newcomer to the game world, I'm just glad this wasn't the first gameboy game i tried to play, because it would have been my last. This thing is crap. Expand

    It's a stinker through and through. I love star wars (OG) as much as anyone, this is worse than 'the phantom menace!'
