It is pure Star Wars gold on GameCube.

Excerpt: Having played the first rogue squadron game on the GameCube and the one on the Nintendo 64 I of course had to get this, I had seen the trailers and knew they were going in a different direction with this one but I saw it cheap and bought it, now you can buy this online pretty cheap and it is not a rare title to find which is great.
Summary: To start with, my biggest thing i value about this game is it's star wars lisence and the amount of effort it goes into telling the battles that happened in the films. When you play the game you actually feel like you are luke skywalker fighting inside a snowspeeder in the battle of hoth and also assaulting the deathstar with a friend is always a laugh.
Summary: Factor 5 have taken all that was good in Rogue Leader and then...only used it a little bit. Instead of the pure space-based shooter of previous Rogue Squadrons, half of this is in on-foot levels. This might not be so bad if the on-foot levels were any good but as it is, there's almost unplayable. Four unwieldy character runs and spins in awkward arcs, leaping six feet in the air while firing away with their weapon of choice. It looks awful and plays worse.
Summary: They have done a great job on this game, the 2 player mode is especially fun and they have managed to recreate the action from the films flawlessly. It is hard to believe that these games are from the mid 2000s. I do not know how they could be improved, especially the space combat levels. The Game Cube still rocks my world!
Summary: I bought the game as i thought it looked pretty good and other rogue squadron games were ok but this is a serious dissapointment and a let down to Star Wars, the gameplay is terrible the flying is terrible and the voiceovers get really annoying. Take your time in choosing a star wars game there are many good ones out there.
