    On the plus side this game has great graphics and some really exciting levels. However on the minus side this game has a sh*tload of boring and repetitive levels. The on foot missions are absoloute rubbish and shouldn't have been included. Rogue Leader was a much better game.

    There's a lot of stuff here. Plenty of content on that little disc. Unfortunately, the whole innovation with on foot combat fell terribly short. As for space combat, it's still great, though the level design is not as good as Rogue Leader. If you likes Rogue Leader, and want more of the same flaying, get this game, and ignore everything where you're touching the ground. There's a lot of stuff here.

Though the flying levels aren't as good as RL, they're still darn fun to play. Plus, Rebel strike comes with all of Rogue Leader in Co-op, and for some the right person that's worth 50 bucks on it's own. Expand

    I played this game at the store before, and it wasn't so bad. The graphics were good but you always get the sense that you have no idea what to do. In the demo, you are dropped in the middle of a huge battle with people yelling at you, so you have the sense of total confusion. This game, overall, is good, but it could have used some more touching up.

    Good graphics, like the previous game, interesting stories, and enjoyable air combat. Only problem is the ground missions felt quite bulky, and some of the other levels as well seemed slow. Other than that, a decent game.

    This game has good graphics and dogfights but they failed on foot combat. that was one of the reasons i bought this game too. it had good fighting elements in the dogfights.

    Topping off the game is the ability to go through all of RS's excellent missions in a splitscreen co-op mode with a friend. [Dec 2003, p.68]

    Anyone who has played any of the previous Rogue Squadron titles will know what to expect from most of this title, but while its predecessors have been unadventurously solid, Rebel Strike is quite the opposite. A valiant effort with some wonderful moments but it promises more than it can deliver. [Dec 2003, p.96]

    There's a prevalent fashion at the moment for games to contain a multitude of games styles, a presumption that suggests consumers have become bored of single genre games. But Rogue Squadron III exposes the lie. It's a game that tries too hard to do many things, but only manages to do a few of them well. [Dec 2003, p.92]
