    The graphics are breathtaking. After minutes of play the real world around you just seems to melt away...May many, many hours of great gameplay be with you!
  2. A complete package that includes a convincing storyline, likeable characters, solid action, some of the best control ever and voice acting as icing on the cake.

    One the best space shooters that has been released on PC or console and in the Star Wars universe or out of it. It has a similar feel to titles like "Colony Wars," "Rogue Squadron," and the X-Wing/Tie-Fighter games, but on a much larger and more polished scale.
  4. Savvy joystick jockeys will be able to finish the story mode in about 10 hours or so, not including the extra game modes. Fortunately, the game is so much fun that you'll want to play it again and again.
  5. Action-packed and so fast-paced that you won't have time to sweat, this title should definitely get a ride in your PS2, filling your screen with blaster shots, explosions and entertainment at a high level.
  6. The long missions require a lot of patience, but not as much as you needed to sit through the movie.
  7. Somewhat of a mixed bag - the game has frenetic shooting action and decent control, but it's mediocre mission design and short length make keep it from the greatness of such predecessors like "Tie Fighter" and "Rogue Squadron."

    The best star figther game ever played, but it could've used the Star Wars story a lot better...Anyway it's a blast.

    Great game. I called this the "Rogue Squadron" of the PS2. The story was also good. Hope this game series is restarted and/or remade for next-gen consoles. Expand
