Theextraordinary craft include the Naboo N-1 starfighter and the Naboo RoyalStarship, plus a variety of never-before-seen ships.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why all the bad press? You CAN control the speed. March 17, 2002
I am so glad I bought this game in spite of all the bad reveiws I read. Same with downloading the demo. If you take the time to learn the controls (only a few minutes) you can control the speed quite well with boost or brake bottons. I use the Cyborg 3D gold joystick which I also like. The first mission alone flying through the canyons is great. Also there are bonus missions you can fly after completing only a few levels.
Bottom line, This game has great new sound effects, and is visually better than previous Star Wars games like X-wing.
Alliance. So is [money] too much? Listen, if you are like me you like Star Wars' first class effects and simple gameplay. The idea is to have fun not get overly stressed out. I buy the games so they will keep on pushing the envelope and make better and better games. I liked Rogue Squadron, and it's been exactly one year since I bought Battle for Naboo which I also like. Don't hesitate to buy from Amazon.com either if you want. I would rate the game 4 stars if there were no other ratings published but I gave it 5 stars because I think the game deserves better than it has received from other reveiwers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of fun! June 6, 2003
Please disregard dszeibert and stomper1's reviews. You can configure the controls. The controls do make sense for anyone who's flown a flight sim before and the menus make perfect sense to those above the 80 IQ line.
I found this game to be a lot of fun. The missions were challenging and visually impressive. It's very Star Wars in its space combat style, with a lot of laser sounds and a John Williams soundtrack playing in the background. The really great thing is that after you finish, there are bonus levels and ships, so it has high replayability.
It's true that the flight control is simplified. There are only three speeds; normal, boost and brake. But hey, you're flying a Naboo fighter. If I wanted realism, I would buy an F14 sim.
The only thing I was disappointed in was the lack of a Multiplayer option. That would have made this game five stars.
In the end, the true quality of this game is the enjoyment you get by blowing up tanks, fighters and frigates, so I definitely recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The dream of the 80's has become a reality March 25, 2002
By A Customer
This is a fast paced action game with good graphics and sound. There are no complicated controls to figure out, so it is possible to get started without any frustrating delays. It has a variety of different settings, from canyons and planetary surfaces to deep space. The fact that you are taking on different alter egos is a bit unusual at first, but it only adds to the entertainment value in the long run. In the training missions you are being coached by a female, which might hurt the egos of some of the `tough and macho' players, but I think it only strengthens the futuristic character of the game.
This is a great game for some quick boost of adrenaline. With a cup of coffee, this might be all you need to keep on working on your computer.I used to play video games back in the 80's, and this is the stuff we could have only dreamed of back then. So if you don't have too much time on your hands, or if you ever said that playing games is a waste of time, then this just might be your fix. (And it's healthier than pills).

By A Customer
Not the most complex PC game I've played, but I found what I was able to experience relatively fun for a fairly straightforward arcade-style starfighter game.
Unfortunately, the game always crashes to my PC's desktop after 5-15 minutes without warning, and LucasArts' tech support has been a repeatedly frustrating exercise in futility. *All* possible problems via my (relatively high-end) system or a bad CD printing have been eliminated, and it looks like all the bugs simply weren't worked out before release. This wouldn't be the first time I've had such a problem with LucasArts games when they first come out.
Not a bad game, but if you're looking at it, I'd recommend waiting for patches to come out and the price to drop some more. Otherwise, you're taking your chances with compatibility, etc.
(Oh! Also, you definitely need a joystick or gamepad to play. Use a keyboard/mouse only, and you can't last 10 seconds.)

3.0 out of 5 stars Does not live up to the Lucas Arts Reputation... January 7, 2004
I bought the game at Walmart for 9.99. I've always been a fan of Star Wars and Lucas Arts and decided to buy it. It wasn't a mistake, but it certainly isn't the best game ever.
GOOD THINGS
The sound effects were absolutely incredible (It's a trademark of Lucas).
The graphics were relatively good!
The game play was a perfect level of difficulty.
BAD POINTS
Can you say S-H-O-R-T? It was only like ten levels. I beat it in about four days.
The story line was kind of weak.
The ships kept changing and you had no control over which one you flew.
All in all, I don't suggest buying this game. It's fun, but there are other Star Wars games that are better.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but Short June 9, 2002
By A Customer
First off, this game is great. It has fun and unique missions, easy controls (if you learn them), good graphics, but unfortunately, its very short. I got this game 4 days ago and beat it this morning. The levels are fairly easy, but fun. Try the game on hard, easy will leave you wanting more at the end.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great new entry in the Star Wars combat sim category! January 28, 2002
By A Customer
If you loved Rogue Squadron but were disappointed by Battle for Naboo, you'll enjoy this title. You fly three great ships from the Phantom Menace era, plus Lucasarts has continued their excellent tradition of offering bonus missions and craft. The graphics in this game are generally very good, with explosions and effects that are much better than Battle for Naboo (however, those with high standards will notice that some explosions, particularly on the surface missions, look decidedly less realistic than the ones in space). Still, you'll enjoy the speed and power of these ships, although the joystick implementation could have been better (for example, you can't control your speed with the throttle and I am constantly correcting for roll). The cutscenes and game immersion elements are superb, as is the voice acting and general continuity with the Star Wars universe. Although it's not a long game, it's well worth it considering the extras. (Another note: the strategy guide that has been published for this title is for the PS2 version. I don't know if the cheat codes work with the PC version).

3.0 out of 5 stars Somewhat disappointing, but worth the money.
This game has nothing on the original "X-Wing" trilogy. A good flyer can complete the entire set of missions in less than two hours. Read more

Worst star wars game ever. I have played enough games to know the difference between controlling your ship versus rocking like a yo-yo. Nasty 2-D look and feel.
