    Ugh! I feel like Luke is running around inside a fat suit and concrete shoes.

    Huge disappointment. All the negative comments on the on-foot levels are spot-on, and then some. The flying levels are only slightly better. It is next to impossible to play from the cockpit view in almost all missions for a variety of reasons. My last experiences with Star Wars games were Rogue Squadron and Shadows of the Empire on the N64, and it is stunning to realize it feels like Huge disappointment.

My last experiences with Star Wars games were Rogue Squadron and Shadows of the Empire on the N64, and it is stunning to realize it feels like this game has been made before these two titles! In conclusion, a huge disappointment on all levels. Expand

    A pathetic excuse for a video game, Rouge Squadron III fails to offer enough new material to be interesting. The new stuff that the game does have is flawed and get's boring after a couple of minutes. Rebel Strike is a duplicate of Rouge leader that happens to have a couple of new features.

    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]
