"Very nice game!"
General/Summary: Star Wars, is famous for is depth, its gameplay and well, every thing funny looking. When Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire was released, in Australia. It was considered a flop. Not using the systems full capabilities. but then Lucas Arts relased Rouge Squadron. This may have prolonged star wars life on the 64. But after the release of the movie, they released Star Wars: Episode 1 Racer. This once again, kept Star Wars going on the Big N. But now they have out done themselves. This has to be one of the most in depth, graphicaly, and advanced games of this era.
Gameplay: It seems that everytime you beat, a driod fighter, or a battle driod, there is always one more to take out. Well, it wouldn't be any fun, it we were made to travel through levels upon levels, with nothing to do. So, you have to take the good, with the bad. The first level, get you used to the controls, and this can be quite anoying, at first of course. But it helps you out later on. Each and every character you meet has a different personality, has a a different style of fighting, and a differnt way of looking at the situation.
Graphics: Each level on SWE1BFN has been designed with what I think is detail, size, and texture. Each level will take you about, 5 or so miutes on your first attempt. And most times you will get lost, in an attempt to find your convoy, your leader, or the homestead you are supposed to protect. The crafts, have been designed, to keep with in the movies traditions. The N-1 Starfighter, or the Naboo Starfighter, as most people know it as, is sleek and shiny. The Heavy Stap or the Trade Fedaration Gunboat, is dark and bulky. Just these crafts means you have to find a new way of looking at the graphics.
Sound: Music, Sound. The same thing. RIGHT. WRONG. Each and every level has new music some original, some from previous SW movies. When you first turn on the game, you are greeted with the music from the Fight sequence between Darth Maul, Qui Gon Jin, and OiBi One Kenobi. As you proceed through, each level has different music for you to get through, and of course the crafts. If it was a Heavy Stap, you were flying. The Guns sound like ''Whoosh Whoosh'', but if it is a Starfighter they sound like ''Zing Zing''.
