    This was one of my favorite games for the N64, and I played the heck out of it. While it was very much lacking in story, characters, etc., it was so darn fun to fly around in such exotic and diverse places blowing up stuff! Despite the repetitiveness of the levels, there was pretty good replay value due to the different ships you could unlock and the power-ups. Who wouldn't want to attack the Death Star while flying a Naboo fighter or a TIE fighter? Definitely a classic! Expand

    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 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. Collapse

    What an amazing game. Even for people that are not fans of star wars. This game had incredible graphics and incredibly engaging gameplay. Even today I find it hard to find many star wars games that are this good.

  1. Rogue Squadron is definitely one of the shining examples of what the N64 can do. The graphics in this game will change the way you look at your N64. Great graphics, great sound, fun gameplay....what else can you ask for?
  2. This is a title that no self-respecting N64 owner should pass up. Nintendo has created the first true N64 classic since "Mario 64."
  3. To say that the Snowspeeder freak in me is satisfied with this game would be an enormous understatement. This is one hell of a fulfilling interactive experience that plays and plays and plays.
