GameCube Launch Title


4-01.jpg (6593 bytes)Far and away the prettiest looking game on the GameCube, like Super Smash Bros: Melee, Star Wars Rogue Leader: Rogue Squadron II doesn’t have many surprises in store for us, but it is one hell of a good looking game. The game takes place in between Star Wars: A New Hope and Empire Strikes Back. It includes familiar locales like Hoth, Tatooine, and the Death Star trench, as well as familiar ships like X-wings, A-wings, and B-wings. For the first time I really feel like the immense scale of the movies’ space scenes has been conveyed in the video games (which is helped by the presence of music from the original movies). The GameCube’s new controller handles like a dream, especially when giving orders to your wing men while shooting down hoards of TIE fighters. I was also impressed with the targeting system; it mimics the movie’s low tech style while also being highly effective. While I’m not the biggest fan of space shooters, I’m not going to miss Star Wars Rogue Leader: Rogue Squadron II for the world.
