  1. Rogue Squadron doesn’t quite work as well as it should. Frustrating, repetitive gameplay and eye-straining graphics hurt this title quite badly. In fact, I doubt that it would score so highly if it weren’t for the Star Wars license.

    A rule of thumb will always be that a Star Wars game will either be terrible (Obi-Wan, Phantom Menace, Yoda Stories) or fantastic works of artA rule of thumb will always be that a Star Wars game will either be terrible (Obi-Wan, Phantom Menace, Yoda Stories) or fantastic works of art (TIE Fghters, KoTOR 1&2, Battlefront). Rouge Squadron would definitely fall into the latter category. The gameplay in Rouge Squadron was by far the best flight simulator (in the loosest definitions) on the N64, even surpassing the famous Star Fox 64. The graphics where really superb considering the N64 was rather weak in comparison the its competitor, the Playstation, mostly due to the now out of business Factor 5's unique way of making games (which is the reason why no N64 emulator has yet been able to emulate Rouge Squadron). Bottom line, this is a superb game that requires no Star Wars familiarity to enjoy if your willing to let it in. Full Review »

Complete with an incredible story worthy of a movie, good voice talent, fun game play, and all your favorite Star Wars lore, characters, planets, vehicles, and even two iconic battle missions from the movie (The Death Star Trench Run and The Battle of Hoth). For all those Star Wars nerds out there here's a game you'll love and its sequels too. Full Review »
