I want to hijack an AT-AT! Flying is cool, but i need diversity! Give me some ground missions!!

Or maybe a chase mission where YOU are the one being chased...

hate to be gloomy gus here...but to be completely honest...RS2 doesnt hold a flame to Starfighter....they havent spent nearly the time in program code...all they did was revamp the original RS coding to fit the cube graphics.

Wait a second! They've been spending at least 3 years on rogue leader, they've had more than enough time for the program code, would be nice if they'd take more time though and put alot of cool details and features in it tho. like running on foot as stormy or rebel trooper, better yet I WANT TO CONTROL AN AT-AT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ha, ha ha. LOL. This ain't a strfighter forum, and you have no clue what you are talking about. Who CARES how much time they spend on programming? And how on earth do you know what the developers are doing?

The graphics are the best in any SW flight sim yet. And watch the Quicktime preveiw movies to see JUST how good it looks.

I don't get your point! RS2 is going to be FAR better than Starfighter!

I don't know... i heard some rumors that LA had lots of troble with the new flight config. It works now, but it still follows the old skool tendencies, markedly, flying into the ground on reverse axis...

Wow! Those pics look coooool!! That's one game I'm definately going to get. Do you know when it'll come out for the PC? I've only heard about RS2 on the Gamecube so far. Have LucasArts made a release date for the PC version. If yes, please tell me!

btw, what do you mean by 'flying into the ground on reverse axis'? do you mean like pushing foreward makes you go down and pulling back makes the nose go up?

Oy...okay---starfighter is much better by looking on a few fronts...
1) Graphics- RS2 does have DECENT graphics...but sheer data size goes to Starfighter. (btw- I did fight for a Starfighter forum here...all my requests were shot down.)
2) Storyline- If RS2 will be anything like RS, the story will suck. Don't get me wrong, I loved RS, but the story had no point to me. at least in starfighter you are following a progressive story line that includes more than one character. And the ships kick arse.
3) PRICE!!!- First off, the cube system is gonna cost a fortune, and is only a quick-fix to catch up to sony and sega's latest systems, and it is gonna cost you a small fortune. On top of that, if we have learned anything from nintendo's game sales, the cube games are going to be costing upwards into 70 bucks a piece....at least with PS2 games like SF, its an even 50 or less.

1) LOL!!! I've seen Starfighter graphics and RS2 graphics and the difference is huge! Watch the movie previews! That's a seriously bad argument.

2) It's gonna be the movies storyline this time around. Not an original one like RS. So the movie missions are the central focus not an aside like in RS.

3) I wouldn't know.

Hey, flamin_tie, you can get a GameCube and two games for the price of a PS2. GameCube is $199.95 and each game is $49.95, so what's this price stuff you're complaining about?

What Grand Admiral Ice said...

I don't know what you're saying about Sony an Sega's latest systems. PS2 has only been out for a year, so it will be a while before Sony makes a new one. Sega has officially announced it will no longer make hardware, hence, Dreamcast is dead. You fail to mention anything about Xbox. Not that I care about Xbox. My loyalties lay with Nintendo, so :P.

Wait a minute... we're all forgetting a very important fact here about RS2... it's one of the GCN's first generation games so it'll have limits... once things start to kick in then better games will be realesed. I know that you all wanna hijack an AT-AT and blow some stuff up but we all gotta remember that there are restrictions to what we can and can't do with the current level of technology!

It still looks like one heck of a game though! Did you say that the storyline is set within the movies? If so, then great! The Hoth screenshot looks amazing, and, it may seem unimportant, but I like the fact that you can see the whole Rebel Army defense together, and all the troops together. It just looks cool to me!

Okay, I've just been reading through all the posts and ppl still have doubts...

First of, the GameCube will be $100 cheaper than the PS2 when it is first released. The games and accessories will be around the same price as Sony's system, but the actual console will be cheaper.
While the GameCube is more powerful than the PS2 and basically dead even with the X-Box (my opinion, if you wanna know why then ask me), it can't play DVD Movies. This is for one simple fact. Nintendo doesn't want a system that can do everything, they want a system dedicated to doing one thing. Playing games, that's all.
Some ppl think that Starfighter is still better than RS2. Obviously those ppl haven't seen the pics and video clips of RS2 and how far it's come since the first media files were released. This is a whole new generation we're talking about. While Starfighter is a decent game, RS2 will blow everyone off their feet when it does come out.
What about what flamin_tie said:
"hate to be gloomy gus here...but to be completely honest...RS2 doesnt hold a flame to Starfighter....they havent spent nearly the time in program code...all they did was revamp the original RS coding to fit the cube graphics."
I'd hate to say it, but he doesn't know what he's talking about. Battle For Naboo was running off the RS1 engine. RS2 is a completely different ball park. You can't just expect to get a game engine and just graft new technology onto it.
Well that's all I have to say for today...
