  1. The Jedi Starfighter feels more graceful and precise than the classic starfighters like the X-Wing or even the Tie Fighter, but maybe I was just feeling the Force...yea right.

    Weighs in a tad too light, and can be readily explored in a long weekend. [Fall 2002, p.118]
  3. The lack of improvements or additions upon the PS2 version really hurts it
  4. While it's not the prettiest Xbox game out there, let alone the best-looking Star Wars game, it does offer good control and entertaining gameplay.
  5. There's enough in here to entertain for a while so give it a whirl, just don't expect it to be playing it when "Star Wars Chapter Nine: Jedis Get Laid" arrives on the silver screen. [XGamer]

    Though the implementation of combat-enhancing Force abilities is a welcome addition to the sequel, overall the game lacks depth—mostly because by now we should expect more intricate enemy-A.I. routines.
  7. 70
    With a combination of good characters, good graphics, good sound and good levels I think it’s safe to say that this is a good game.
  8. 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.

    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 myI 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. Full Review »

    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 missionsThis 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. Full Review »
