You might have played one, you might have played them all, but there is no doubt after the first Star Wars video game, ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ for the Atari back in 1982, the Star Wars video game series has proved massively popular with fans. Here are the top ten all time favorite Star Wars computer games.
1. Knights Of The Old Republic. Set thousands of years before the actual movies series, Knights combined classic RPG with a great story to produce one of the best games of the series ever played.
2. Star Wars Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight. As a first person action game, Dark Forces II was superb, that you could use Jedi powers made it a must have game.
3. Star Wars Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader. Rogue Squadron II was a favorite with fans due to some fun arcade style shooting.
4. TIE Fighter. Following on from the success of X-Wing, TIE Fighter improved it’s storyline and graphics to produce an overall more enjoyable game.
5. Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast. Based on the Quake III engine, this 2002 game was notable particularly for the great light saber battles.
6. Lego Star Wars II. Based on events of the original movie trilogy, the second lego game of the series proved to be very popular.
7. X-Wing. The original PC game that later would go on to inspire three full sequels and expansion packs, this game allowed you to finally fly an X-Wing and help the alliance.
8. Empire at War. You could control the universe in this popular 2006 strategy game.
9. Dark Forces. Your mission was to stop Darth Vader creating a race of Dark Troopers (like Stom Troopers only meaner), in this 1995 Doom style shooter game.
10. Republic Commando. Working with the dark side to create and control a group of clones in the clone was, this first person shooter released in 2005 provided lots of gameplay for fans.
So there you go, the top ten Star Wars Games of all time. While everyone will have a different opinion of which games should have made the list, these classics still seem to remain favorites in the hearts of true fans of the series.
