  • Summary: Courage. Skill. Honor. These are the three primary qualities that you must bring to Star Wars Starfighter, a flight action/adventure combining intense air and space combat in rich 3D environments. Join three starfighter pilots in a series of harrowing missions to save Naboo and the galaxy from the oppressive abuses of the Trade Federation. May the Force be with you, young starfighter pilot.

  1. Packs so much action and excitement into its story that it's easy to forget its flaws. [PC Format]
  2. The single-player campaign alone is inspiring enough to warrant picking up this space shooter. [Apr 2002, p.84]
  3. An unpolished, but solid, port of a good console game.
  4. Although improvements to the game’s length would have been welcome, changes to the controls are definitely not. Unfortunately, that appears to be exactly what has happened and calling it an improvement would be a significant misstatement.
  5. The disparity, however, between this title and the great classics that LucasArts used to create is too great of a void to disregard.
  6. Passable entertainment, just keep in mind that it's meant to be a light action game. If you're like me though, you're hungry for a true starfighter sim like you played in the glory days of the X-Wing series.
  7. The box art is new! Otherwise we're left with a console port minus multiplayer features or anything in the way of enhancements for a technically superior gaming platform.
