    Menu system and controls suck... graphics is pretty cool but needs to be more like original tie fighter in gameplay and usability.

    This game is by no stretch of the imagination a masterpiece but it nonetheless gives you the feeling of being an awesome starfighter pilot in a Star Wars movie. It has a pretty original story that only partly connects to Episode 1 and has not really any particularly good or bad parts.

It has a pretty original story that only partly connects to Episode 1 and has not really any particularly good or bad parts. You get to fight as three different pilots/ships in battles mostly against the Trade Federation both in space and on the surface of some planets. I played the game both with keyboard and joystick, and I must say that the controls are working fine. All in all there is not much about the game that stands out in any way, just a short fun ride if you can pick it up for a couple of bucks. Expand

  1. Most of the praise should be given to the music and sound effects; basically, a blast festival of famous Star Wars weapons accompanied by the magnificent music score of John Williams.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
