Review

Star Wars Rogue Leader: Rogue Squadron II features some of the best graphics ever seen on a home console, and it is a proper, old-fashioned, Star Wars game. If those two facts don't raise at least an eyebrow of your interest, then there's probably not much in the world of video games that will. Thankfully, the jaw-dropping graphics are matched up to a very playable shoot-'em-up concept that works as a slightly more in-depth version of the PS2's Star Wars Starfighter, except without any of that Episode I nonsense. Rather, it re-creates everything from the Death Star trench run to the Battle of Hoth.

The game is actually a sequel to Rogue Squadron for the N64--an excellent game that many only remember from the rather lackluster PC version. It's structurally very similar to the original, with a dozen or so levels and a Star Destroyer full of secret levels and ships. The game does feature a few new ideas, such as controllable wingmen and ground troops, and some of the levels are set in deep space rather than planetside, but at its heart this is still Rogue Squadron deluxe.

What elevates the game to an object of worship is the graphics--they really do look almost identical to the movie's, with several scenes appearing like exact copies. The ships move with a fluidity and grace you wouldn't have thought possible from such a tiny purple cube. The only flaw is that the missions are needlessly short, but there's plenty of replayability, and by gosh there's those graphics. --David Jenkins -- Amazon.co.uk

5.0 out of 5 stars 10 stars not 5 stars October 31, 2001
In my opinion,Rogue Leader is the best GameCube launch title by far.I can't remember the last game that got my heart pumping like this one.My hands were even shaking after some missions,I guess it's the combination of classic Star Wars scenarios you go through all three movies here and an incredibly well designed,beautiful game.And it ain't no cakewalk,either.If your skills aren't up to snuff in any of the missions at least all but one exceptionally easy run near the end,anyway you'll definitely find yourself floating home.But despite the difficulty,it's almost impossible to put Rogue Leader down,and that's the sign of a truly great game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Star Wars Classic November 28, 2001
I have to admit I did not think video gaming systems could get much prettier than some of the visuals on Playstation 2, but boy was I blown away by this game. The very first mission, the attack on the Death Star, was mind-boggling, lasers flying everywhere on a beautiful 3D surface. The cutscene before this was just incredible, though, it looked like it came right out of the special edition movie. The Battle of Endor mission is the most amazing, I mean it places you right in the game, especially because of the fact that about 300 TIEs are coming after to you. To say it concisely this game is incredible visually!
Moving on, you play as Luke for part of the game, but you also play as Wedge Antilles on many of the missions, like the Battle at Endor. Each mission has its on guidelines and rules, some you protect, others you attack, and on the Imperial Academy level you actually steal an Imperial ship. The missions are fairly simple, but achieving that coveted gold is not. The hardest missions are the final two, Battle at Endor and Strike at the Core. The bonus mission are a definite plus, I love shooting the quads on the Escape from the Death Star bonus mission. And its also great to shoot down some rebel scum playing as Darth Vader. Only one complaint, the Training level is extremely boring after the first couple plays.
The music is tranplanted from the movie and is great, it definitely gives it a classic touch. The little movie cutscenes between missions are also pretty interesting. Overall this is an excellent game and I can give it no less than 5 stars. Great launch title for the redoubtable Gamecube, let's hope we see more of this quality. Oh yeah, I also loved the first Rogue Squadron, though, that was a much simpler game.

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST GAME OF ALL TIME! October 17, 2001
I played this game at Cube Club on sunday, and let me tell you, it is the best game i have ever played PERIOD! The graphics are even better than the movies themselves! The framerate is rock solid which is a first for the Star Wars genre! The music is fully orchestrated, with a few extra soundtracks just to fit the mood in many other levels, and is presented in full 5.1 surround sound through Dolby Prologic II! AND BEST OF ALL, IT FEATURES THE BATTLE OF ENDOR, WHICH SINGLE HANDEDLY HAS TO BE THE BIGGEST AND BEST LEVEL IN VIDEO GAME HISTORY! IT IS UNBELIEVABLE!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Leader's Graphics October 20, 2001
By A Customer
Rogue Squadron II for the GameCube is one of the most impressive games I've seen. Visually, it rivals or may even best any Xbox title and definetly soars over the PS2. I haven't seen any high polygon counts on the Xbox that are even close to this game. Each ship, rendered with many texture passes (light mapping, dirt mapping, bump mapping, etc), consists of about 20,000 polygons. No other system creates this many on just a single object, not even a PC. Environments span to 120,000 polygons and at times there are 15 million polygons (per second) on the screen. All of this runs at a lightning fast speed of 60 frames per second.
The figures Microsoft boasts about its 120 million polygons are unreasonable. Sure it can create these without lighting, texturing, anti-aliasing, and so on. But what can it really do with all the features put into play? Probably the same or a tad bit higher than the GameCube.
While comparing this game to Dead Or Alive 3, a visual masterpiece on the Xbox, you really can tell the difference with the numbers. Rouge Leader II polygon counts are much higher. Lighting and texturing are all top notch even with the lower storage capacity of 1.5 gigabytes for the discs. The Xbox's power is great but until it can push farther that Rouge Leader II then it still is behind in the graphics department.
All in all this game is great for its gameplay and its stunning recreation of the Star Wars saga. The control and the speed in which your ships fly at are great. The speed had a vast improvement over the N64 version and it all accounts the power of the GameCube. With Nintendo's new system the Star Wars worlds can be recreated in a realistic and playable format. The game's sound and music were all recorded at a high quality. Its textures are beautiful and accurate. And the game itself is just a spectacular work of art. This is what a Star Wars game should be like.

5.0 out of 5 stars As close to being on Hoth as you'll ever get... December 1, 2002
Overview: As a long-time Star Wars fan, I've always loved to try the newest Star Wars game. From the original vector-based Star Wars Arcade game on, there's just something about being able to tap into an universe that you're already familiar with. Unfortunately, like many licensed titles, these have been hit and miss over the years, though the hits have been many on Nintendo consoles. Rogue Leader is no exception, setting a new mark for excellence in a Star Wars game. While fans of the more technical TIE and X-Wing shooters on the PC might find this a step down as far as gameplay is concerned, most Star Wars fans will come to the agreement that no game has captured Star Wars so well visually. No other early GameCube game comes close to the visual splendor to be found, and very few play as well to boot.
Graphics: 10.0 One word sums up Rogue Leader's graphical prowess: AMAZING! No game I've seen on any platform has caught me more by surprise than the graphical beast that is the Rogue Leader engine. While I suppose that I shouldn't be all that surprised, Factor 5 did some great work on the Nintendo 64 after all (Rogue Squadron & Indiana Jones & the Infernal Machine in particular), I suppose that I just wasn't prepared for the leap they were able to take from the Nintendo 64. Not only are the ship models extremely accurate to their motion picture counterparts (I've read specs that state that they're actually MORE detailed than the 3D models used in the Special Editions), but the textures are top-notch. The level of detail is also amazing.
