    It's a worthy successor to Rogue Squadron, with a great branching storyline, reachable objectives, and great graphics and sound.
  2. With new vehicles, new gameplay features, and more impressive graphics, there is very little to complain about here-except for the lack of a multiplayer mode.
  3. 90
    Gorgeous and lush (graphics) with gigantic landscapes and smooth framerates. The draw distance alone is awe-inspiring.
  4. Even with sub-epic myths to draw upon, Factor 5 have put together a well-conceived and thoroughly enjoyable game.
  5. The game is among the best looking on the N64. The music and sound effects are N64bulous, and a solid narrative connects the game together and ties it into the Star Wars universe.
  6. Frankly, there aren't many serviceable alternatives in the hangar, making Battle for Naboo a nice way to kick some ass into the N64's golden years.
  7. Despite the graphical shortcomings, Star Wars Episode I: Battle for Naboo offers some of the best shooter action on the Nintendo 64, especially now that the system is hurting for good titles.

    It's almost impossible to get a gold medal on the level SANCTUARY.

    I didn't like this game as much as Rogue Squadron, but it offered similar gameplay with enough improvement to keep me playing even after I'dI didn't like this game as much as Rogue Squadron, but it offered similar gameplay with enough improvement to keep me playing even after I'd beaten it. The addition of ground vehicles was an interesting mechanic, though in practice not as cool as it might sound. In the end, how much you liked this game was probably heavily influenced by how much you liked Star Wars. Expand
