    The visuals are astounding, the challenge is incredible, and the action is nonstop. [Nov 2001, p.140]
  2. The best graphical looking game of 2001.
  3. It's everything a Star Wars game should be -- exciting, entertaining and breathtaking.
  4. A visual and aural masterpiece. The game has all the bells and whistles you'd expect from a next-generation game including bump mapping and 480p support on the visual end, and five channel surround sound via Dolby Pro Logic II on the aural end.
  5. 90
    The combined package of beautiful graphics, intense action (including force-feedback rumble support in the controller!) and familiar Star Wars ditties all work together to create an immersive, outstanding experience from beginning to end.
  6. If only my girlfriends looked this good!
  7. The game falls short of putting you in the cockpit. The whole idea of a dogfight is non-existent. The enemy crafts move too quickly, abandoning any thought of pursuit.

    Loved this game all the way through. Its very replayable thanks to the nature of the missions and lots of rewards. Its much better than i Loved this game all the way through. Its very replayable thanks to the nature of the missions and lots of rewards. Its much better than i expected and one of my favourite games in the past few years. Its a joy playing the missions as you fight to comeplete the objectives. You also recreate moments from the movies while playing. All good stuff. flaws are the amount of missions as there arent enough and due to the length the games has been harder to make it last. Cant wait for a sequel where they spend real time on it. Expand
