Rogue Squadron is a lot like Star Fox Assault except it's a lot more challenging. Your objectives take a couple tries just to figure out what to blow up sometimes, unless you've got some good perception. Don't get me wrong, I love this game (finally one Wedge is playable in!) And its on foot mission starring Wedge is completely amazing (yet it's the only good one). Basically, you are set to certain levels from the movies, but mostly new ones leading up to the movie things. Take control of an X-wing, Y-wing, B-wing, A-wing, the Falcon, or even the Slave 1 and take off to fight for the Rebellion! Your missions are split up as Luke and Wedge during flight combat and ground missions with a blaster or a lightsaber. If you don't mind being frustrated with a game, this one's a must for a Star Wars fan.
Rated 10 out of 10 by 5t0d next to its predisesors "Best game I ever played"
I remember the Christmas I got this game with my game-cube, I set up my system put the this game in and once I started the game I was blown away. At the time I played this I already had the first game for the N64 and I played the second game a lot of times at my friend's house and I was oh so thankful that my ride with the series was able to continue. Right now I have all three RS games and the prequel that takes place during Episode 1 (I didn't enjoy that game as much as the RS trilogy) and let me tell u ...best set of games Ive ever played. They all have there own strengths and weaknesses.
As for this one just about every thing is Incredible in this game. First, It has excellent replay value, you can play a co-op version of the second game, play 2 player VS, and play two of the classic star wars arcade games, FOUR GAMES IN ONE HOW CAN YOU BEAT THAT. Second, the graphics look down right fantastic and they still look amazing today especially when compared to today's standards. The last reason is the controls, I didn't know how they were going to pull of all the missions that require you to use a speeder or a walker instead of an x-wing or A-wing but some how they did it and boy did they make it work. The only con in this game is that the on-foot missions are kind of boring and you have to play through them quite a bit of times to progress.
bottom line- This game is magnificent and If you are a star wars fan or you like multi-player games to play with your friends, trust me this game is a wise choice.
Rated 10 out of 10 by hammerofjustice93 The best ever
This is by far the best Star Wars game ever made. I love the Rouge Squadron games. Didn't much care for the 2nd one, but thats ok! I love how you can play levels that almost follow the movies perfectly and then you can play levels that are completely genuine. I plan on buying this and a GameCube again so I can play the mess out of this. If you've never played any of the Rouge Squadron games or this one, you are missing out on a life changing game.
Rated 8 out of 10 by Bytes Not as good as the previous two
This game somewhat departs from the classic Rogue Squadron formula by adding on foot levels, speeders, and other vehicle levels. The graphics are arguably the best of the generation and the sound is spectacular especially in surround sound. Unfortunately the on foot levels lack the thrill of the levels in vehicles and flying craft. Good game for any Star Wars fan. Weakest in the series but still good.
Rated 10 out of 10 by FlyBoy Great Game
I first played this game at a friends house. I was fairly skeptical at first, because, after all, it is Game Cube, and I had never heard of it. However, I was blown out of the water. It's a great game to play multi-player, the single-player missions leave a little to be desired. For this price, it is a great game, giving years of great fun, and it's got cheat codes :).
Rated 9 out of 10 by VesperofCorellia Worth the play!
If you're a "hardcore gamer" with picky standards, there's probably going to be some factors in this game that you won't like. However, if you like Star Wars - or any science fiction, for that matter - and just want a good and fun game to play, I recommend this! There are a few pros and cons so this game. Lets start off with the CONS: 1) The multiplayer in this game isn't that impressive. There's only a few random missions that don't correlate with each other and it's actually difficult to unlock the next mission with how the medal system works. It's still fun if you're up to dealing with those issues, though. 2) The ground work in this game takes awhile to get used to. It might have been my old controller, but the camera angles made it super hard to control the toggle. 3) The graphics aren't the most amazing thing I have ever seen in my life. Now with the PROS: It's a fun plot! It basically starts after the Battle of Yavin and goes until the Battle of Endor, however there are only a few special missions that you unlock that directly relate to the Star Wars original trilogy, so at least it's new materials. 2) It's not too easy! I find it hard to find a game that actually takes time and effort to complete. This isn't one you finish up in a day's time. 3) I really like the medal system in the game. To unlock certain missions to move on with the storyline, you have to use points accumulated by the medals you earn (bronze, silver, and gold). To earn a medal, you have to reach the certain standards for that medal, such as through accuracy, enemies kills, time, etc. 4) It's one you can actually replay. I've had it for 10 years now and it's still a good one to revisit.
Rated 8 out of 10 by hudgestarwarsfan good for hard core players.
good for hard core players I could never pass level 2 where your on a speeder and dodging rocks so I sold the game on ebay and got $4.00 for It.
Rated 7 out of 10 by 2424242424242424242424244 this game is ok
this game is ok because you dont have a lot of lives and if if it says game over you start all over and thats sucks but the good things are you have cool spaceships and cool people and good guns and thats why i think this is a ok game.
Rated 9 out of 10 by SanFranciscoFan2010 One of GameCube's Best
This is one of the GameCube's best games ever. This is my favorite game in the Rouge Squadron series. It's a must have for any GameCube or Wii owner. It has awesome gameplay, great graphics for the time, and is flat out fun to play. Buy this game!!!!
Rated 9 out of 10 by NorthwestA330 A good upgrade from the previous version.
Very challenging, but a great game if you're into Star Wars. This version includes some speeder levels, as well as some levels where you're on foot. A step closer to Battlefront than the last version.
