Star Wars, not only is it a massive Saga spanning several movies, hundreds of books, and several hundred TV episodes, there are nearly a hundred video games based on the movies and other original content, and today I am ranking the Top 10 Best Star Wars Video Games!
Ever since I was a five year old little kid, I have played Star Wars video games, and throughout the years, I have owned more than 20 Star Wars video games, a few of which I bought for the sole purpose as a collector item. Seriously, I bought Star Wars: Masters of Teräs Käsi because it is considered the "Worst Star Wars Ever," and yes, it is sucks. So yeah, I love Star Wars video games. However, as with any list, my choices are limited to the games that I have played, so if your favorite did not make the list, I probably haven't played it yet! And as one rule, only one game per-series of games will be included. Otherwise, half the list would be KOTOR and Battlefront.
After several RTS (real-time-strategy) games, Petroglyph Games finally got it right, well, kind of right. Sure, Empire at War is no masterpiece of the RTS genre, but it did give players the ability to conquer the galaxy at large and even destroy entire planets with the Death Star!
In many ways, The Force Unleashed was a disappointment. It may have given the players a chance to become a Dark Jedi and destroy legions of Stormtroopers, but the controls and combat are not nearly as impressive as they look. However, The Force Unleashed made up for a lackluster game with an involving story about the formation of the Rebellion and the rise and fall of Starkiller, Darth Vader's secret apprentice.
Probably the least well known game on the list, Racer Revenge is an underrated and all too often forgotten Podracer game. You can tour the galaxy and race on various planets in the Star Wars galaxy, from Mon Calamari to Tatooine! The races are fast pace and full of secret shortcuts to make things all the more intense.
EA's recent attempt to bring back the Battlefront, Star Wars: Battlefront is a bit controversial for the lack of content on release. However, if you take a step back and look at the game itself, Battlefront is a well crafted shooter that is a blast to play, even if there is not nearly enough content. The game almost makes up for the lack of with those moments when you are a mere soldier on Hoth as fighters battle overhead and an AT-AT is on the brink of destruction falls to your at your feet. Overall, Battlefront is a fun game thus far, just not one packed with content. And to be clear, EA’s Battlefront counts as an entirely different franchise than Pandemic Studios’ Battlefront, which you will see later on the list.
While the sequel, Star Wars Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader, is often considered the better game, I never played that one. So instead, the first game in the franchise, Rogue Squadron, makes the list! Rogue Squadron gives the player the ability to fight in many of the greatest starfighter battles from the films, as well as playout its interesting campaign missions. With the addition of a few cheat codes to unlock classic Star Wars starfighters like the Millennium Falcon, Rogue Squadron is one of the most fun games to come from the Star Wars franchise.
