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.
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.
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).
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.)

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.Published on September 30, 2003 by rzr
