  • Summary: Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter reveals the events that lead into the Star Wars: Episode II film. As a secessionist movement threatens to expand, Mace Windu dispatches one of the Council's top Jedi--Adi Gallia--to investigate disturbances in the Karthakk system. Take the role of Adi as she maneuvers a prototype Jedi starfighter through the evil Captain Toth's massive fleet. Either solo or with a friend, you must use your Force powers against enemies that threaten the very foundation of the Galactic Republic. Expand

  1. Might I remind you this is the game that finally combines using the Force and starship combat, a concept that is so cool it could chill all the beer at five consecutive Oktoberfests.
  2. The best version of this game lives on the Box - accept no substitute.

    The Starfighter games for the Xbox simply feel faster than they do on a PlayStation 2. The speedy Xbox hardware simply offers a more realistic feel of what it's like to engage in aerial combat.
  4. I know that you can't mess with the timeline of the universe, but it would have been nice to see a little more freedom within the layout of the game.
  5. One key improvement Jedi Starfighter makes over the existing Xbox Starfighter game is in the realm of multiplayer. It doesn't have a system link component per se, but finally, someone has included a co-operative component throughout the entire story campaign.
  6. Weighs in a tad too light, and can be readily explored in a long weekend. [Fall 2002, p.118]
  7. From a pure enjoyment standpoint, Jedi Starfighter is incredibly sterile and lacking any of the feeling and fantasy that the Star Wars series offers – plus it’s virtually a carbon copy of the last one.

    This game is great, some parts are frustrating but for what it was, a game to promote a movie, it was really good. The campaign is 15 missions long and all of them play differently so you won't get bored, on top of this you get about 5-6 bonus missions and can play all the campaign missions co-op, you can also get 2 player missions as well which number around 6-7. On top of this you can unlock new ships to replay the missions in. It feels like a game that had a tiny budget and not enough time so for what it did it was good, the story really what do you expect? There are cutscenes here and there mostly at the end of each act, they're not that great but if you bought this game you get it for the gameplay not the story. The voice acting was pretty good, it made the story comparable to the movie it was promoting. But the best part is the ships, in the story you play in two ships, the Jedi Starfighter and a mercenary ship, the starfighter gets force powers and the mercenary ship gets special weapons, so the missions won't feel the same, on top of this you can get to use new ships, they're not like the typical reskin, most of them are similiar to the mercenary ship, sharing 3 weapons, but they have different blasters and main special weapon. Others don't have special weapons, the hardest to get isn't even that good but the best is the Freefall and Gunship. Expand

    I remember this game. Jedi Starfighter, it took me ages to finish, but not because it was very difficult or long. It was because it was my least favourite Xbox game that I owned. I never really wanted to play it, but felt I had to or I would have been wasting money. When it was finished, it was deleted straight off the hard drive. Anyway, so I did I not enjoy playing this game. Why? One word 'BORING', the gameplay was extremely repetitive and overall limited. The cinematics were enough to keep you interested for only a second longer, and the storyline was not nearly enough to engage you. If you ever see this on eBay or maybe the video shop, spare yourself and don't buy it. Expand
