Summary: The game wasn't bad, but I didn't realize how old it was. The early PS2 games were just a step above the PS1 games. The later PS2 games have better handling, and graphics than the early ones. But all in all it was enjoyable.
Summary: This game started off great! Graphics are magnificent, sound effects are astounding, beginning credits gave that real Star Wars movie feel...but after a while, things just seemed to get too repetitive. Basically, every mission is to destroy, destroy, destroy all enemy ships...a short movie scene...then destroy, destroy, destroy...I don't know...it just got tiring after a few hours. Controls are sort of difficult.
Summary: To start it off, the graphics of this game really proove your using of 300 bucks to buy a Playstation 2. You will literally want to play the levels over and over again. Along with posotive ratings, there are a lot of downsides: A.The game is simply too short, even when you unlock the other levels and airplanes, you'll say to yourself, "Why did I spend all that time just to do that?
Summary: The game starts out very slowly but heats up after the 3rd or 4th mission. After that, it's a non-stop rollercoaster of Star Wars mayhem! You will actually feel like you're in the Star Wars universe. The battles are intense, with an incredible amount of enemies onscreen at once. The missions are actually quite long, most lasting over seven to eight minutes.
Summary: Right then. Firstly the facts. Star Wars has been part of my life since I was 6 years old... so I'm a fan, period. Starfighter provides some of the most beautifully rendered images of the Star Wars Universe so far and for that... Good Work Fella's. BUT... it's pretty damn repetitive!
Summary: First thing that I noticed about the game is the wonderful graphics and sound. Everything flows seamlessly. Controls are good although the targeting system can be a little tricky. One drawback to the game is the boundaries. There is nothing more irritating than having your ship suddenly move you off course to keep you in the boundary especially while chasing enemy planes.
Summary: Within 5 seconds this game pulled me in. The ships are amazing the combat spectacular and the story exciting. For once even some of the characters are really cool, the alien ones of course. Overall this game is really amazing. Some of the missions have so many enemy ships flying around it really is incredible to see. The problems with the game are a couple of stupid missions. The cliche canyon run is so over done as to be utterly dull.
Summary: The graphics are pretty grand (in places), and I must say that I really adore the flight control on the main three ships (a combination of older Star Wars flying controls and the simpler Star Fox flying method). The on-board info (targeting system, shield indicator, etc) takes a bit to get used to, but gets intuitive real fast. The fallbacks are not in actual gameplay, but in the fact that I've managed to lock up the game three times (on two different copies).
Summary: This is the first disappoint I've had with my PS2, so far. The graphics in Starfighter are good, but, more than anything else, they reminded me of how amazing Rogue Squadron's graphics were on the N64 a number of years ago. Another problem is the fact that the vehicles of Episode One are simply not as interesting (and, thus, as fun to fly) as those of the original trilogy.
Superb, just like you heard. But what you didn't hear...

Summary: ...is how short it is. I want to preface my only criticism by saying that everything else you're reading in these reviews is very true. This game has stunning visuals in both the gameplay and cutscenes. The music as always is the case with products from the Star Wars franchise is outstanding. The controls are wonderful, the diversity of the three ships/pilots available to you compliment one another perfectly.
