  • Summary: X-wings, B-wings, speeder bikes, AT-STs, tauntauns--you'll have to master them all to save Luke, Wedge, Han, Chewie, and Leia from Darth Vader and his Imperial forces. All new multiplayer modes include the entire Rogue Leader game in co-op, plus endurance, capture-the-base, and dogfight modes. Cinematic realism takes you to new heights as you climb out of your cockpit to battle the Empire on foot in this thrilling third chapter of the Rogue Squadron series. Expand

    There's a ton of content in "Rebel Strike," and the multiplayer gives it replayability far beyond that of the previous "Rogue Squadron" games.
  2. Sure this game lacks a bit when it comes to the foot levels but the other single player levels and multiplayer modes will make you overlook the issue.

    One of the best Star Wars games out there and also, in the process, proves to be one of the best GameCube games out there.
  4. The best parts in Rebel Strike are nothing less than excellent, but the worst parts are so shamefully bad that they taint the entire experience. You can’t help but play through a level like "Trials of a Jedi", set on the planet Dagobah, without wondering what the hell the developers were thinking when they decided to keep it in the game.
  5. It tries too hard to be so many different things and ultimately falls flat on its face, very disappointing after the success of the previous title in the series.
  6. There are too many little things wrong with the strongest part of the game, the flight combat, to completely excuse the weakest parts, the third person missions on foot.
  7. Gone is the marriage of lush, detailed and hugely compelling space combat missions to key moments in the film trilogy, replaced by poorly put together ground-based approximations of the old style, and a series of gimmick-driven vehicle missions that barely even summon up an initial "wow" factor.

    Wow. I've only played a level or two of the single player game, but I've already gotten my money's worth on the multiplayer. Racing and dogfighting with Classic Star Wars vehicles, and the entire Rogue Leader game in co-op mode. Word is that all 3 classic Atari coin-op games are in there somewhere too! This is a gold mine for us 30 something SW geeks. It'll make you feel like you're 10 again. 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. Collapse

    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. Expand

    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. 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

    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. Expand
