View Full Version : What was your favourite Star Wars game?
07-28-2001, 09:14 AM
Ok, sorta like Rogue15's topic, and one you will have seen plenty of times on other forums:
Which is your favourite of the Star Wars games?
Mine would probably have to be:
Rebel Assault 2 - it was way ahead of it's time (IMO anyway), but I sold it after completing it a couple of times, and never saw it again
Jedi Knight - great community support, the best mods, great SP and MP level design and the force powers were a stoke of genius

Everybody knows my favorites: Rogue Squadron 3D and X-Wing Alliance.

Never could get into X-Wing Alliance personally, my favourite SW space sim was probably X-Wing :biggs: vs. Tie-Fighter :tie:
07-28-2001, 03:27 PM
My favorite is still the old X-Wing VS Tie Fighter and I spent many hours of my life playing Rebellion....
07-28-2001, 03:46 PM
Me too... Rebellion can be very addictive once you get past the clunky interface.
But my best Star Wars game... Xwing Alliance. *points to sig*
07-28-2001, 04:50 PM
rebellion is addicting, i accidentally stayed up 'til 4 am playing it once (that's cause i kept thinking it was 2 AM) and i got tired (finally) and decided to go to bed and i beat it easily the next day.

Speaking of XWA I was looking around the WAV directory on my CD and I listened to Aeron say "You know I'm gay" or something like that.
I haven't gotten through the whole game yet but does she ever say this in it or is this some wacky LEC prank?
07-28-2001, 07:01 PM
I think it was an lec prank. btw, which wav sound is it? can you give me a file name?
btw, anybody ever play Droid Works? it's pretty fun, i like killing the droids in that catapault thing. especially the scared one.
I'm into strategy games so my favorite up to date was Rebellion (I hated Force Commander-i rented it, glad i did not buy it).
Rebellion was a horrible click fest with bad graphics but i did play a lot of it, mainly because of the scope of the game (all the different characters and ships etc...). The ideas in this game we're awesome.
A Rebellion 2 with a friendlier interface, cut scenes instead of pictures with text , the use of up to date graphics for the space battles and a third neutral faction (Like the smugglers), is my Star Wars Dream game.

Its under AERON_AZZAMEAN and its A0ae175.wav
07-28-2001, 07:42 PM
lol it sure sounds like that. actually it's Hey Emkay! the e sounds short though. lol
07-28-2001, 08:51 PM
Ha, that is pretty funny.
My favorite game is XWA. Man i spent days of my life playing that.
07-28-2001, 09:38 PM
it's been weeks for me. and dloading the new ships.
07-28-2001, 09:40 PM
Maybe she did say Hey Emkay, but I still have my suspicions dammit
07-28-2001, 09:46 PM
lol i wish i'd remember which mission though. i think it's when she gets captured somewhere and you need to rescue her. not sure if she ever got captured tho.
07-28-2001, 09:49 PM
That was Emon. I'm on Battle 6 Mission 5, the god damned Tyderium one.
07-28-2001, 09:57 PM
oh!!! that level. i remember i sweared my head off at it so many times and gave it the finger a few times too.
You need to dock on the station first and wait until rogue squadorn shows up, THEN when they show up, you dock with the tyderium shuttle.
07-28-2001, 10:00 PM
Yeah, that one did take a while, but i dind't swear. I just spent a few hours on it and i eventually got it.
07-28-2001, 10:07 PM
:maul: I would have to say that jedi knight is my fav... Thatll soon change tho when Star Wars Galaxies comes out :D :D :D :D :D
07-28-2001, 10:09 PM
Galaxies, like Everquest, Everquest has claimed the souls of some of my closest friends *Sob*
07-28-2001, 10:36 PM
I would like Rebellion 2 soo soo much!
As for Galaxies, I'm prepared to suck my life away into the Star Wars universe...
07-28-2001, 11:11 PM
But are you willing to pay the price? I don't know if i want to pay 10 bucks a month just to play a game. And that's after i already bought the cd. I have no doubt that it will be fun, but i'll probably end up passing.
07-29-2001, 12:01 AM
Shadows. No doubt.
Rogue Squadron next.
07-29-2001, 12:16 AM
I never played shadows, was it any good?
07-29-2001, 12:26 AM
You wouldn't imagine Tie. Basically it's a game with a great variety of missions, in space, Tatooine, in ships, on foot. It had a great story also.
I think Shadows is probably the most important Star Wars novel. Just imagine, the game for PC, N64; its own action figure line, and a soundtrack!
Give a shot to this game when you can.
07-29-2001, 12:28 AM
Bah, the first level was pretty cool, but nothing more. I also enjoyed the swoop bike race and the last level - going inside the skyhook was really awesome. Other than that, I found the game mediocre. It looked like they were trying to do too much, and ended up with not enough.
07-29-2001, 12:42 AM
Points of view...
07-29-2001, 03:44 AM
Well from what I've played so far, XWA was the best.
07-29-2001, 10:43 AM
What are you guys talking about? Every one knows that Force Commander was the best Star Wars game ever! No j/k. I did like FC but it was no way the best SW game. Of the ones I've played I would have to say Jedi Knight with modifications.
07-29-2001, 12:49 PM
Yeah, Jk is probably up there on almost everyone's lists. However, it's a little short, even with mods, and it just didn't have the quality of XWA.
07-29-2001, 12:52 PM
Well I finally beat that Tyderium mission so XWA is now on my favorite list again. :)
Jedi Knight gets boring after awhile, thats why you do mods. Like the Swoop Racer one
07-29-2001, 04:10 PM
What swoop racer one?
07-29-2001, 04:20 PM
awwhaha, definitely xwing alliance. jedi knight would come in second for me, esp. if on the internet. i don't know bet. rogue squadron and racer, but probably squadron. xwa just combines all of the great stuff from previous sw simulations and rocks hard core.
07-29-2001, 04:25 PM
Yes, it was a very fitting sequel to the previous titles.
07-29-2001, 08:39 PM
XWA is my favorite Game (I almost threw my computer out the window on the Tiderium mission in the end I just used my skip.) Tie Fighter :tie: would be a very close second.
07-29-2001, 08:41 PM
I LOVE Jedi knight
07-29-2001, 08:56 PM
X-Wing Alliance has got to be my favorite SW game. Though Rogue Squadron 3D comes in a CLOSE 2nd!!:D :D
07-29-2001, 09:00 PM
It took me forever to get past the tyderiam(spelt wrong oh well!!)
level, after that it was easy.. I think they could have a lot better job on the Battle of Endor though, going into the Death Star just wasnt quite as good as i expected!! :mad:
07-29-2001, 09:06 PM
The Secret of Monkey Island / Jedi Knight
07-30-2001, 01:16 AM
:tie: XWA first, then Rebellion/Supremecy second:atat:
07-30-2001, 01:42 AM
X-wing Alliance is my favarite, but i have other favs too like,all of the star wars games except rebel assault 1&2 and and i somewhat dislike force commander.
07-30-2001, 04:06 AM
Jedi Knight was and still is my favorite. And I realy liked SotE but it seems to always get a bad rap. :o
07-30-2001, 10:37 AM
Funny how few have mentioned non PC games. So let's change it up a little.
Racer (console) and Star Wars Arcade (the recent Sega release) are my favs. There's something about Racer that keeps me coming back for more. Jedi Knight, although I haven't played it as much these days, is up there as well.
07-30-2001, 04:44 PM
Well as i said in my last post, almost all Star Wars games are my favs, that includes the console games, too. Anyways what's SOTE?
07-30-2001, 04:50 PM
Rebellion for me..
I play a lot of LAN-RTS (anything BUT Rebellion) games with a friend and he'll probably consider me nuts for saying this..
it is addicting and yes, you have to get past the interface.
once you do actually, you start a game simply wondering what's going to happen to your characters, worlds, etc. it's entertaining in it's own way. if only for a while.
X-Wing (the original) is a fave too. I remember it being extremely hard after the fourth mission.
oh, and how could i forget those Super Nintendo games !!
Super Star Wars was one of my all-time faves. (yes I'm that old).
07-30-2001, 04:51 PM
sorry about a second post, but i always wondered about one thing.
why didn't Lucasarts ever make a point and click adventure like the Monkey Island series or Indy adventures, but with Star Wars ? A missed opportunity if you ask me..

*collapses and dies* *gets revived*
ok. SOTE=Shadows of the Empire. That game is awesome (on your first few times completing it)
07-30-2001, 05:55 PM
Leon, i don't know, but maybe you could get a job with them and make one yourself. Otherwise, i have no clue.
07-30-2001, 06:04 PM
Gee, I don't know. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that star wars titles are going to get them like 5 times the publicity and sales.........
07-30-2001, 09:15 PM
LOL ! I actually was in the process of coding an adventure with a friend for MSX a while back. we used to make games waaaay back in BASIC. Yeah, you read right: BASIC.
that's pre-DOS, folks.
07-30-2001, 10:08 PM
damn, what are you, like fifty? ;)
07-30-2001, 11:57 PM
man, he time before dos. that's along time ago. I don't remeber basic, but i do remember my first computer, a whopping 6 mhz.
07-31-2001, 10:45 AM
i turn 28 next month.
so it's not THAT bad.
I just got coding in basic around 1984
07-31-2001, 12:54 PM
LOL, that's before i was born.
08-02-2001, 09:56 AM
(**strokes him over the head, patronizingly**)
i know, i know...
08-02-2001, 10:40 PM
do you though?
08-02-2001, 10:49 PM
My first comp was a Tandy... Ive played with BASIC but I didnt have the patients to do anything big.
08-03-2001, 03:57 PM
too young to use basic, but i did use DOS quite a bit. I'll never forget my first comp. An old 186 6mhz portable.
