Star Wars: Starfighter (Video Game)

This is the first disappoint I’ve had with my PS2, so far. The graphics in Starfighter are good, but, more than anything else, they reminded me of how amazing Rogue Squadron’s graphics were on the N64 a number of years ago. Another problem is the fact that the vehicles of Episode One are simply not as interesting (and, thus, as fun to fly) as those of the original trilogy. Additionally, the first three or four levels were down right boring and I was soon regretting my purchase.

The game does eventually pick up. There are some very cool levels which are both graphically stunning and a lot of fun to play. The use of both planet side and space battles is also a nice touch; something that was conspicuously missing from Rogue Squadron. The control is also top notch. While the graphics aren’t is good as they could have been (it’s the PS2, for cryin’ out loud), the sound is top notch. The voice acting ranges from adequate to superb and the character’s voices are actually somewhat unique (a rarity is Star Wars games). The cutscenes are also pretty impressive.

While I would recommend this game, my biggest peeve is that it’s WAY too short. First off, the levels are too short. Often times, I found myself wishing that a level would have gone on for another five or ten minutes. This game is supposed to represent inter-stellar war, yet most of the battles could be completed in a couple of minutes. More than anything else, though, the entire experience is over way to quickly. It took me around five hours to complete all of the standard missions: on the same day I bought it. There need to be about twice as many levels as are found in this game; just as soon as things start to get interesting, they’re over. Luckily, bonus levels and bonus ships do make the game last a little longer.

The most important aspect of this game is that, once you get past the first couple of levels, it is really a lot of fun (you get to issue orders to wingmen and everything), BUT, make no mistake, this game IS NO KILLER AP. I’d rent it before buying.

Need help with Star Wars Rogue Squadron game?

Hi everyone! I have installed Star wars Rogue Squadron game on a windows 95 PC but it does not let me play , when I start the game I get this error ” Could not initialize Hal ” . Is there anyone who experienced that and know what this means and how could be fixed ?

the term HCL stands for “hardware compatibility list”. If you copy the exact pharase of the error message and paste it to a Yahoo search, you can find some bulletin boards that post possible fixes – there are even some that mention Rogue Squadron doing this to other people as well. I would start there or go to LucasArts or Microsoft.com and searching for/downloading a patch to get it to run right.
