It depends on the types of games you like. Personally I like JK, rebellion and XvT. But thats just me.
BTW You might want to put the img tag in your sig, so people can see your pic :)

Check your PM, Evil :)
Is the JK expansion worth getting? It's real cheap now, should I get it? Or is it a complete waste of money?

MoTs Is good coz of the new force powers and the scope on the stormtrooper rifle is cool coz it can kill almost anything in one shot and the pirate missions are good

I liked X-wing vs. TIE fighter and X-wing alliance. Jedi Knights is cool but for some reason I never got it. Rebellion is fun, but really hard.:D

Why do you like it?

OK I really like all of the star wars games that i have played, and that is basicly everything but RA and RAII

Now i like FC because of the 3d camara. I think the units had good stats and the game was ballanced well.

I do think it needed a lot more work, the units moved really bad, at-at couldn't walk over trees that shouldn't stop an at-st, they could find a very good path and the units were always trying to walk over each other if you had them going thought the same path.

I like the controls for the game, all of the cammara controls were on the mouse unless you don't have a scrolling mouse then you would need to use the key board to zoom in and out. I don't like haveing to put the camara on a unit and rotate around the unit, it is a lot better to have the camara free and put it anywhere you want.

I think that if LA would have taken care of the unit moving bugs they would have a next generation game.

I've never played RA but I have RA2...it's not too good. Playing the first time can be fun, but replay on it sucks!

shoot for xwing alliance, esp. if you have a good computer b/c the graphics come out great. the stories are good and multiplayer is even better at zone.com

JK and rogue squadron are good too, the only thing is that rogue squadron i think is not as deep as xwing alliance (not as many ships) but better graphics with that 3D accelerator enhancement.

I just have to say that the story of XWA is good untill you get to the ending, that stinks!!!

I would only go for Rogue Squadron if you had the N64. If not...don't worry about it.

in all honesty darth, i've played both and i still think it's better on the PC. just something about it on the console that seems weird..

kvan,
i don't play it as much b/c of xwa. however, the balance of power expansion adds those storylike missions which gives it some balance. if you're down to play sometime on the zone, let me know....

I like smashing up Stardestroyers. I don't have XA but a friend of mine does so I've played it over there. It is wierd because of all those items you get...

I've never been to the zone :eek:
But I'm game to play sometime if you are :D
I only have xvt balance of power. I don't have xwa. I'll probably go out and buy it this week, if I can force myself to go out in the daylight (it burns!) ;)
Jay and Fergie maybe we can sent up a game sometime?

Iv played and got every starwars game released for the pc (except starwars chess).

The top four games (in my opinion):

1: Jedi Knight/Mots
2: Xwing vs TIE Fighter (less lag online, more multiplayer missions)
3: Xwing Alliance
4: Rebellion

If your only on a 56kps, id recommend xvt for playing online, ok so you dont get so many ships to choose from and the graphics are bad but its possible to play without too much lag.

If your interested in playing any of the games for a clan, check my sig.

I never knew it was a clan site. So how good is everyone at XvT?

Boba Rhett

JK/Mots are the best. End of story.

BTW, Force Commander was a tragedy.

I like X-Wing Alliance, jedi knight is my second favorite, and then rebellion. I also like the old Tie Fighter game, but my computer's all screwed up and i can't play it anymore:(

Here Are The Best Star Wars Games

1.JK/MoTs(MoTs really enhanced the game and good graphics since its three years old
2)Xvt(Good Dogfights)
3)Dark Forces one(The Missions are really good)
4)Focom

FlyBOy
08-15-2001, 03:45 PM
FoCom?! are you crazy? :mad: that's the worst game (not just star wars) that i've ever played. The only cool thing about it was the little posters you got in the box when you bought the game. But, everyone is entitled to their opinions, i guess.

Before you go yelling at people about what they post why don't you read above, because we already talked about force commander.

Also please don't say one of my favorit game sucks unless you are going to give a reason for it!!!

I Liked Focom coz it was one of the only La games that concentrated on the empire and i hate games that revolve around the "Goodies"

Dr. Evil
08-15-2001, 05:37 PM
I think the JK, Rebellion and XvT are very diferent from each other.

I think ill buy Rebellion, i loved AOK and i cant wait till 2002 gor battle grouds.
But my mini-me loves action games so i dont know.

REBELLION or JEDI KNIGHT?

Thank you for your posts

Hi Evil, the best is Shadows of the Empire, but Rogue Squadron is pretty good also.

Rogue Squadron and Rebellion followed by X-wing vs. TIE Fighter. Thats my oppinion anyway. :D

General Nilaar

X-Wing Alliance! I just bought it last week and it's great. Needed something to tie me over until GB comes out;)

50 single-player missions, multi-play on the Zone, tons of ships, and lot's of depth. And I got it for $15. That's what I call getting my money's worth.

Only bad point is that you have to fly for the Rebels. I loved the original Tie Fighter and still have fond memories of flying for the Empire.

I was thinking of possibly picking up Rebellion after playing through XA, what's everyone's thoughts on that game? I have heard both good and bad things about it...

Mitth'raw'nuruodo

Here's the lowdown on Rebellion.

1) Lots of characters, main and other (EU).
2) TONS of starships (Rebel and Imperial).
3) Manage your empire by harvesting resources and building units and buildings.
4) Send characters on missions (diplomacy, sabotage).
5) Great cinemactis, average in game graphics, below average 3D battle graphics (game switches to 3D for battles).

Over all opinion: Pretty good game. Worth buying, don't expect it to keep you entertained forever. Gets monotonous after you beat the game a couple times. DEFINATELY read the manual. Important hotkeys for battle in there!

Good Luck if you buy it! :D

Tie Guy
08-15-2001, 09:20 PM
If you get it beware to wade through a ton of different windows and popups. And you could easily spend hours on a single game, so you gotta have patience. Also, tne manual could take hours to read too, i've read books for history class that were shorter. :D

I just CAN'T believe I passed up on that one until it got three pages.

*ahem*
force move topic!
*nothing happens*
*cough*
*takes a HALLS Mentho-Lyptus and consumes it*
FORCE MOVE TOPIC!!!

Ah, that's better!

Oh, and my favourite Star Wars game is Xwing Alliance :D

I have(or had depending on age of game) pretty much every star wars title out there (including Star Wars Monopoly and Star Wars Chess, and Star Wars Screen Entertainment!) I think that they rank as follows...

1. Jedi Knight & Jedi Knight: Mysteries of the Sith (PC)
2. X-wing Alliance (PC)
3. Battle for Naboo (PC)
4. Rogue Squadron (PC - N64)
5. X-wing Vs. TIE Fighter (PC)
6. Rebellion (PC)
7. Dark Forces (PC - PS1)
8. TIE Fighter (PC)
9. X-wing (PC)
10. Star Wars: EP1 The Phantom Menace (PC)
11. Pod Racer (PC - N64)
12. Shadows of the Empire (N64)
13. Star Wars: Masters of Terra Kasi (PS1)
14. Rebel Assault 2 (PC)
15. Rebel Assault (PC)
16. Force Commander (PC)
17. Super Star Wars series (SNES)
18. Star Wars Chess (PC)
19. Star Wars Monopoly (PC - Boardgame [I have both, Boardgame is better!])

Although both Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds and Star Wars Galaxies have the potential to become Number 1 & 2 very Soon
;) !

Why is Batle for Naboo over Rogue Squadron and where is Star Wars Starfighter??? Battle for Naboo's interface was so confusing and nothing like X-wing vs. TIE that I put that game up quicker than I have almost all my games. The game was not very appeling to me. Rogue Squadron on the other hand was a well made game. It also had craft everyone was familiar with.

I suppose I was duped and blided by it's New Luster. I guess you're right, when I think about it. I was in a hurry and just trying to list the Star Wars games, and believe me....alot of those games are very close in my opinion. Very Hard to rate 20 Star Wars games! And again, it's just my lowly opinion. For others, maybe Star Wars Monopoly is the best game out there, who knows?! ;)

Bfn PC version. I don't think I've ever gotten that upset by a game before. I think I had the demo installed for a whole five minutes.

Tie Guy
08-16-2001, 06:09 PM
the demo was bad, the game was good. I didn't like the Heavy Stap at all. Anyways, it is the same interface as Rogue Squadron, although Rogue Squadron was a far superior game.

My fave is: Jedi Knight

The best Star Wars game, by far (imo), is Jedi Knight. Despite it being so old it is still a lot of fun to play. The adition of the saber into a first person shooter was great. I can't wait to see what they do with JKII, I just hope my computer will be able to handle it. Games get expensive when you have to get a new computer to play them. ;)
