Product Description

Amazon.com

It is a time soon after the destruction of the first Death Star. Luke Skywalker has formed a squadron of hot-shot pilots to engage the still-formidable Imperial forces. You, as Luke, must lead this rogue squadron in a series of galaxy-spanning raids and rescues. To complete all your missions, you'll need good flying skills, fast reflexes, a keen eye, and a quick trigger finger.

You get to fly all your favorite ships: The X-wing, Y-wing, snowspeeder--even the Millennium Falcon. There are also some "secret" ships, such as the sleek Naboo Starfighterfrom Star Wars: Episode I, The Phantom Menace, a TIE interceptor, and, um, a '78 Buick.

The flight simulation in this game is first-rate. You'll find yourself leaning to the side as you pull a high-G turn in pursuit of Imperial TIE fighters. And the outstanding graphics and sounds are realistic enough to transport you to the Star Wars universe. Every detail is in place, right down to the individual Stormtroopers you can see running around (and trying to shoot you). One of the more impressive sequences lets you bring down Imperial Walkers by using the tow cables on your snowspeeder. Nice touch.

This is a single-player game, but you start each mission with a few wingmen from your squadron, and the well-done spoken dialogue between pilots and commanders really makes you feel like part of a team. The only significant shortcoming is the lack of a cooperative multiplayer option. With its excellent gameplay, varied environments, and interesting missions, Star Wars: Rogue Squadron is sure to become a long-time favorite. --Eric Fredrickson

Pros:

  • Faithful to lots of Star Wars details
  • Satisfying flight action, explosions, sound effects
  • Interesting missions and plot
  • See--and fight over--the Spice mines of Kessel and other famous Star Wars planets
Cons:
  • For some reason, you can only fly clockwise when bringing down a Walker
  • No "easy" setting for those without The Force
  • Voices of Luke, Wedge, and Han don't sound like the real thing

5.0 out of 5 stars The second best N64 game ever created December 7, 1999
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I think that this game is the second best game on N64 you can get. It has a lot of different levels, and great ships. I think it's a very challenging game, and it's enough fun to keep on playing it. I beat the game twice, and I still love it! I think that it's a definite must have N64 game. The only thing it's missing is a multiplayer mode!

5.0 out of 5 stars Total immersion August 2, 2000
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Maybe it is because I was obsessed with the Star Wars Trilogy when I was younger. I owned Return of the Jedi curtains and dressed as a Stormtrooper for Halloween...several years in a row. I feel a natural pull (the FORCE?) toward Star Wars products.
Thus, I was drawn to N64's Rogue Squadron.
Immediately, I felt immersed in the Star Wars universe with Rogue Squadron. It was a fantastic feeling to be able to put your X-wing in open or closed foils mode. I loved the feeling of blasting those AT-ATs and TIE Bombers while trying to control my speeding A-wing fighter. All of this happened while I was being infused with a adrenaline-pumping John Williams soundtrack. Even after I beat the numerous challenges within the game, I still go back and "fly around." And that's the fun of it. You actually feel like you are part of the Star Wars story, and that alone is a great experience.
As a Star Wars fan, I was not disappointed. As a video game player, I was amazed by the quality of graphics (I used the expansion pack), control, and storyline.
This is one game that I will never sell back.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the greater games to appear on Nintendo 64 November 24, 2001
If I had to pick one word to describe this game it would be amazing. "Rogue Squadron" pushes the N64 to it's maximum power graphically, which can be further enhanced by an expansion pack (I strongly recommend going with one it makes the game run smoother). The gameplay couldn't be more entertaining, I often wonder how my little Nintendo 64 is able to handle all that this game has to offer. The missions you fly in this game vary from escorting ground troops into combat all the way to launching full foward attacks on monstrous Imperial ships. The AI is pretty strong depending on the difficulty level, but when it comes to your own wingmen helping you out just forget it. Environments in this game are incredible for a Nintendo 64 game and I give the designers alot of credit for putting so much work into them. Can't get you're hands on the new Rogue Squadron "Rogue Leader" for Gamecube? Pick this up to satisfy youre urge, if you do own Rogue Leader or even don't plan on getting it, pick this title up anyways for a hell of a gaming experience.

4.0 out of 5 stars The X-Wing flight sim you've always wanted November 18, 1999
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
First let me say that when this game came out it was everything I wanted it to be. I had played x-wing and tie-fighter on the PC and it was fun but this game has the look and feel like a properly designed flight sim - for each craft you fly has it's own special characteristics. The voices and sounds are fantastic. The levels are varied and imaginitive. However, to be picky, I'd like to see some additions and a Rogue 2 come out. They would include: space combat, with capital ships, the ability to choose which craft you want (some levels simply insist you use the snowspeeder for example), a couple wing-commander-style wingman orders buttons to get another rogue to help kill the tie on your six, and more accurate shots on the complex polygons such as in the cloud city level where sometimes your perfectly aimed shots won't blow up the tabana gas container you want, instead the shots hit the ones behind it, getting you in trouble with the civilian authorities. All in all, though it is one of the best games I've played on the N64 to date and with all the graphics, sound and voice stuffed on a cart instead of a cd, playstation style, I don't have to see a loading...please wait sign. That's worth every penny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rogue Squadron: Best Star Wars game around February 14, 2001
By A Customer
I could sit and bore you with a lot of talk--mainly praise--about this game, but I've decided to just show you exactly why this game is the best Star Wars game ever made:
Graphics: 10/10--Great looking levels and ships. And you can use the expansion pack for even better results. But it's not required for gameplay. Very cool.
Control: 10/10--For a game of this genre, you need to control your ships. Here, you can lock onto an enemy and follow it while trying to destroy it. The ships turn on a dime and some are better for certain missions.
Fun Level: 9/10--The missions are long and very fun. However, you can get lost in some, and that gets annoying very quick. Also, the game is not tough...it's not easy either.
Replay Value: 10/10--You'll never get bored with this one. You can receive higher rankings by doing better on missions, and the game is fun, so that's good. Also, with about 10 ships--give or take--you can try your luck at beating the game with other ships.
Overall: 11/10--No, that's not a typo. I'm giving this game more than 10 stars because it deserves it. I highly recommend this game to anybody who likes flight simulators or Star Wars. Great voice acting, control, fun and amazing graphics. Almost beats Goldeneye, but not quite.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rogue Squadron is the best Star Wars game for the N64 October 13, 2000
Rogue Squadron. Every Star Wars fan knows the elite starfighter group of pilots. Now you get the opportunity to experience what it feels like to hop into the cockpit of an X-Wing,Y-Wing,A-Wing, V-Wing, Millenium Falcon, T.I.E. Interceptor, and the Naboo Starfighter. As you fly through over 15 missions, ranging from Tatooine to Mon Calamari, you'll earn ranks in the squardron<the highest I've gotten is Gold Leader>. With each mission you complete, you'll earn a medal<bronze, silver or gold>and be promoted. Do you have what it takes to buy this game, and prove you've got what it takes to be a top fighter pilot?
