FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

Star Wars: Starfighter Screenshots



Title: Star Wars Starfighter
Publisher: LucasArts
Platform: Playstation 2
Release Date: December 2000


Inspired by its unparalleled Star Wars flight-game heritage, LucasArts Entertainment Company LLC brings all the intensity of its classic air and space combat games to PlayStation 2 with Star Wars Starfighter. The fast-paced flight action game immerses players in a series of dramatic missions to help save Naboo from the powerful and menacing Trade Federation. Star Wars Starfighter is expected for release in fall 2000.

Star Wars Starfighter takes full advantage of the robust graphic capabilities of PlayStation 2 by presenting more than 20 realistic and beautifully rendered 3D starships amidst a variety of 14 incredible environments set in air and space. The game sets players on an epic journey that begins on Naboo and continues through the climactic assault on the Droid Control Ship inspired by the motion picture Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace. "

Star Wars Starfighter follows in the long tradition of LucasArts' highly acclaimed flight combat titles, offering rich game play and a deeply engaging story," says Tom Byron, director of product marketing for LucasArts. "It is a true next generation game for a next generation system that will provide one of the most realistic and visually rewarding interactive entertainment experiences to date."

Star Wars Starfighter presents an exhilarating story-driven flight adventure, and places players in the roles of one of three mismatched starfighter pilots: Rhys (pronounced Rees) Dallows, Vana Sage and Nym. These three unlikely allies all have personal vendettas against the Trade Federation and must learn to work together to repel the invasion of the Naboo system. To succeed, each character must engage in thrilling dogfights and use their cunning skills to outwit villains.

The game's compelling narrative is entirely original though it draws inspiration from key points within Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace. As the game progresses, players are presented with a series of challenges that will require the acquisition of new skills. Players who master starfighter combat will be rewarded with new story elements, characters and locations.

Players are introduced to the three main fighter pilots and their craft through a series of intense flight exercises from each character's point of view. Rhys is a cocky Naboo pilot-in-training. His Naboo N-1 starfighter is quick, agile, adept at dogfighting and armed with proton torpedoes, laser cannons, and deflector shields. Vana is a Naboo expatriate who roams the galaxy contracting her services as a gun for hire. Her ship, the Guardian, is ultra-fast and equipped with stealth capabilities, sensors, tracking devices and a variety of weaponry. Nym, an alien pirate who lives a Robin Hood existence in the shadows of the Naboo system, pilots the Havoc, a starship outfitted with powerful bombs, lasers, a rotating turret gun, and heavy shielding.

Players in Star Wars Starfighter will be able to test their battle skills against more than 50 vehicles, including Trade Federation drop ships, battle tanks, droid starfighters and never before seen craft such as the deadly Protector, Scarab and Dagger.
