|Lead an elite team of Rebel Alliance pilots through a series of desperate missions against the dark Empire in Star Wars: Rogue Leader -- Rogue Squadron II. The original Rogue Squadron presented N64 gamers with a new benchmark for combat flight sims, featuring comfortable, fluid control, and diverse environments full of crafty enemies and impressive explosions. Developed by the same Factor 5 studio that gave us the original, this sequel is designed to deliver the same magnitude of advancement as Nintendo gamers and Star Wars fans move into the 128-bit generation of consoles.|
Players take the role of either Luke Skywalker or Wedge Antilles. The game's story follows those told in the Star Wars film series, with progressive missions taking place across diverse locations such as a moving asteroid belt, the misty skies of Bespin, the frigid lands of Hoth, and a fully operational Death Star. The Rogue Leader has more control over his mates in this sequel, as he can issue commands to attack specific targets or to flee when outnumbered. Extra credit is awarded for bringing the Squadron back home safely when the mission is completed.
The title is also designed to show off the graphical capabilities of the Nintendo GameCube, featuring layered atmospheres, a realistically gentle dusting of particle effects, dozens of ships battling independently onscreen at once, real-time lighting and shadows, and other state-of-the-art eye candy, all pumped out at a steady 60 frames per second. Like many other GameCube titles, Rogue Leader supports a 480p output, which allows higher resolution display on compatible HDTV systems.

Nearly two decades ago Nintendo created a sci-fi adventure that pushed gameplay design boundaries to new limits. Named Metroid, for the energy-sucking creatures featured in it, the franchise debuted on the NES to make a larger splash in America than Japan. Knowing it had only laid the foundation for greater things to come, though, Nintendo went on to create sequels on the Game Boy and Super Nintendo. Regarding the latter, Super Metroid proved to be one of the most detailed and creative 2D games ever, offering up fantastic vertical platforming and unbridled exploration of the moody worlds. In the wake of that, it has been called one of the greatest games of all time by numerous publications.
Since then, fans of the series have been clamoring for another addition to the series. However, due to the dying popularity of 2D gaming and the increasing complexity of 3D, Nintendo avoided the Metroid franchise for many years. But that didn't stop Metroid fanatics' pleas and eventually with the onset of its new GameCube technology, Nintendo gave in and began development on Metroid Prime in mid-2000 at newly formed second-party Retro Studios. Only then, doubts began to set in that an American studio could bring the franchise into 3D, and the eventual confirmation that the series would be handled from a first-person perspective seemed blasphemy.
Astonishingly, the final product is anything but that. Instead, Metroid Prime has undergone the same brilliant translation into 3D that Nintendo's acclaimed Legend of Zelda franchise has. Indeed, one of the greatest game franchises of all time is totally reborn on Nintendo GameCube, replete with nearly everything that made Super Metroid so stellar and perhaps even more. From the amazingly polished gameplay design to the gorgeous visuals and atmospheric soundtrack, Metroid Prime is unquestionably a must-have masterpiece and a show horse that all forthcoming adventure titles will be judged by.

Metroid Prime is an action-packed adventure set in the first-person perspective that takes place just after the events in the original Metroid (NES). It has lead character Samus Aran, a bounty hunter by trade, chas
I really enjoyed this game, even though it ended too soon. Taking over after the Battle of Yavin, you lead Rouge Squadron for about a dozen missions, leading up to the final battle with the second Death Star. One of the really cool aspects of this game is the way the game changes witht the time of day. For example, in on level, during the day, you fly a Y-Wing, but when you fly at night, you fly a snowspeeder.
The graphics for this game are really nice, and it is almost like watching a movie. You really get sucked into the storyline. The blaster effects sound amazing, as do the ships themselves. The game takes very little time to load, and I experinenced no problems with frame rate, even during busy battles. The only problem I had with the game was the fact that it ended just too soon. I would have like more levels, or at least levels that were more open ended. That said, I would definetly buy this game again, and I look forward to unlocking all of the secret levels in this amazing game.
Star Wars Rouge Squardon 2: Rouge Leader is another Awesome space shooter released by LucasArts. This one is for the gamecube.
This game takes you through Star Wars universe in a great way. You start at the Batttle of Yavin and work your way through to the final space battle at the second Death Star in Return of the Jedi.
You get to fly a number of the famous ships from the Star War's universe (A-wing, B-wing,Y-wings, Snowspeeders, and many more). LucasArts also provides voice acting from the origional actor that plays Wedge Antilles in the movies! Nothing like getting audio from Wedge as you are flying a mission.
This game makes you feel like you are either in the movies or reading one of the Rouge Squardon books.
What can I add to one of the most highly rated Star Wars games ever? I played this game years ago on a friend's Gamecube, and wished I had owned it. Well, we finally got a Wii and when I read you could play Gamecube games, I got my hands on this. I LOVE IT! If you get disoriented easily, it might be too tough. The 3-axis space battles can boggle the mind but if you love Star Wars and wondered what it would be like to be in their world, go for it! I had to buy a Gamecube hand controller (easily and cheaply available on eBay) and I also found out you need a Gamecube memory card (also available here) to save games. The Wii operates in "Gamecube" mode, meaning the Wii controllers do not work and the Wii memory will not work for Gamecube games. You do have to select the game from the Wii home page with the Wii controller, but once the game starts, it's the Gamecube controller all the way. I need a gamecube controller extender cable to sit further back. Another option is getting the Wavebird wireless Gamecube controller (available on...you guessed it! Here.) That's the only drawback. You can't use the Wii wireless controllers. With the company Factor 5 out of business now, there's little hope for a Wii release of this game. But if Darth Vader can redeem himself by tossing the Emperor down the plasma garbage tube, anything can happen, I guess!!
This game is incredible. One of the best from the N64, Play station era.Game play is very easy to learn and graphics are top notch for 64 bit.You take on the role of Luke Skywalker. Fifteen of the 16 missions occur between Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope and Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, and they include planetary liberation, supply raids, rescue missions, and helping people defect from the Empire. The final mission takes place during the Battle of Mon Calamari first depicted in the Dark Empire comics, and has the player assume control of Wedge Antilles.
