Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast – Review

I can recall back to my childhood watching the Star Wars Trilogy. I have rather fond memories of the movies and even dreams that have never been able to manifest themselves in any other media other than my imagination. It's rather disappointing when I think about it, especially considering the multitude of opportunities LucasArts has had to capture the experiences of the movies. Don't get me wrong, they have produced gems like Star Wars: X-Wing and The Super Star Wars games, but on the same note, they're also credited with flops such as Star Wars: Episode 1 Racer and Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter. In fact, it seems all of their recent attempts have been lackluster at best.

Star Wars Obi-Wan – Review

As I watch my regular dose of television, I get bombarded with commercial after commercial. Of these, the most annoying are infomercials. They claim to do this or that in hopes to snare the watcher into running out to the local retail store or picking up the phone and dialing their 800 number.

Star Wars Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader – Review

Nearly two and a half decades have passed since the original Star Wars movies hit theater screens. In that time, the saga has grown from the adventures of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Princess Leia into a mythic universe full of stories. It has also grown into a merchandise mega-machine, inundating consumers with action figures, books, comics, toy lightsabers and, of course, videogames.

Star Wars Starfighter – Second Opinion

What kind of strange hold does Star Wars and LucasArts have over this industry? With every Star Wars game release, the video game industry salivates. It doesn't even matter that we get stinkers like Shadows Of The Empire, Jedi Power Battles and many of the other forgettable releases, the next announcement always brings more cheers from the press as if it were the first. It's no more evident than with Star Wars: Starfighter.
