    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.

    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 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
