Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

New system, new Star Wars adventure. LucasArts' no-brainer approach to the PlayStation 2 looks great and plays even better. Star Wars Starfighter is modelled after LucasArts' long-running flight-sim series. Thankfully, the game is fully loaded with plenty of vehicles from the Star Wars universe--which should put early fears to rest that the game would only include a few Episode 1 vehicles. On the PlayStation 2, this game looks incredible. The terrain detail is breathtaking, with long distances stretching out between you and the horizon. The environments are quite varied from the looks of things, with fighting taking place both within a planet's atmosphere and in the lonely recesses of space. Since it's a console game, the controls are very simplistic, yet sport some interesting features. Players can freely switch between highlighted targets and can use a zoom lens to easily take out all droid invaders.

The cinematic sequences stitched throughout the game are brought to life with sharp, real-time cut-scenes, and all of Starfighter's effects are light-years ahead of anything you've previously seen on a console.

This PlayStation 2 Star Warsflight game demonstrates the best use yet of the high-profile license. Putting players in the pilot seat of a TIE fighter or an X-Wing is sure to answer the fantasies of millions-upon-millions of dedicated fans. --Todd Mowatt

Product Description

Star Wars Starfighter brings air and space combat to the PlayStation 2, combining the action of Rogue Squadron with the plots of the X-Wing series for an engrossing gaming experience. The story, inspired by the The Phantom Menace, will have you trying to save Naboo from invasion by the treacherous Trade Federation. There are three pilots to choose from, each with a different ship. Rhys is a cocky Naboo pilot-in-training. His Naboo N-1 starfighter is quick, agile, and adept at dogfighting, and armed with proton torpedoes, laser cannons, and deflector shields. Vana, a Naboo expatriate, roams the galaxy contracting her services as a gun for hire. Her ship, the Guardian, is ultra-fast and equipped with stealth capabilities, sensors, tracking devices and a variety of weaponry. Nym is an alien pirate who lives a Robin Hood existence in the shadows of the Naboo system. He pilots the Havoc, a starship outfitted with powerful bombs, lasers, rotating turret gun, and heavy shielding.

4.0 out of 5 stars Star wars starfighter 15 July 2001
By A Customer
Star wars has always been your dads favourite movie series,darth vader here,light sabers there,you know the story,but now playstation 2 have released a game which will appeal to the younger generation.
This game has everything you could want from a space shoot-em-up,gorgeous graphics,brilliant gameplay and a brilliant plot to boot.
The enemies in this game have great AI,you fire your laser at the enemy target and they dodge and swoop in for the cheap shot.Before you can get into the actual game itselt yoyu must learn the ropes and the moves in a training field where you will eventually have to battle with the trainer herself. I wuold recommend this game to anyone loves shoot-em-ups and because of its title it will obviosly appeal to your star wars loving dad, OVERALL RATING=4 STARS

The first three star wars films spawned a whole generation of games in their own right, a lot of them very good. Star Wars Star Fighter is one of those very good games. Instead of following the normal story line of TPM LucasArt made an [almost] completly new story line.
Basically this story line involved three pilots going of and fighting evil [wow] but this works.
The game makes full use of the Dual Shock 2 controller by using the left stick to go left and right and the right stick to roll. This is incredibly easy to master in about 5 minutes (in the first ,amazingly easy, mission). The rest of the controls are as simple using almost all the buttons including the L1+2 and R1+2 buttons with out a hard combinations in sight. The sound is incredible, the blaster bolts and bomb explosions make you feel more like you are in the star wars universe. This is of course backed up by John Williams sound track superbly used and hardly ever repeative. The graphics are good to look at. The debris for example, when you shoot up a droid fighter, you can fly through the bits if your fast enough. The PS2 can maintain tons of explosions on the screen at any one time and I only ever seen in freeze for a milisecond once. I have seen 50+ star fighters on screen all independantly moving (for example the "New ristance" level) this is amazing.
The only problem with this game is there are only 14 levels backed up by several bonus missions but this hardly dents the game. The medal system still works like before and will make you play it much more. 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Shoot-em-up ever 17 Jan 2002
By A Customer
Amazing! The game sticks closely to the film, from the missions, to the ships and planets. The controls suit the gameplay, the first analogue controls the ship, and the second controls the wings (you can spin or turn to avoid rocks jutting out of cliffs.) . I don't own this myself, but my friend does and I've borrowed it 9 times in under 2 months! Only a tenner more to save, and this game will be mine! I recommend this game even if you don't like stars wars, because it'll be a classic in 5 years, guaranteed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy it or I will shoot you 16 Jun 2003
This game has an excellent storyline. It's graphics are awesome, you pilot different starfighters and play as different characters, all ships have missiles. There are hours of play and lots of action. You fly around many planets including Naboo.You fight back the trade federation, you also get to fly into their giant battleship.

4.0 out of 5 stars Star Wars Episode 1: Greatfighter!!! 12 July 2001
By A Customer
When I first heard of this game I didn't for 1 minute believe that it would be any good. Why? Because Star Wars games are (bar this) awful. But I am happy to report that I was wrong. The craft handle just right, the graphics are beautiful and it is great fun to play. Fans of Star Wars will no doubt recognise the sounds, and the radio chat gets you ready and rearing to go and take on the next challenge. The only downside to this otherwise hardly flawed dame is the longevity. It does not take long to complete, and it will not last anyone for too long but great fun anyway!
