    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!

    The first thing that will hit you is the stunning visuals in SW:S, everything is crystal clear, even with the speeds that you'll reach in the game nothing slows down, the action remains at a constant fast pace.
  3. Shooting fans will love it, and Star Wars fans, too -- but hardcore gamers will wish something more original was piled on to this "Rogue Squadron" update.
  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. The long missions require a lot of patience, but not as much as you needed to sit through the movie.

    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.
  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."

    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 forGreat game. I called this the "Rogue Squadron" of the PS2.
