    Default Star Wars: Rebel Assault

    Star Wars fans rejoiced when LucasArts released Rebel Assault for PC CD-ROM in 1993. It featured the first new footage filmed since Return of the Jedi, a decade before, and it was the game everyone seemingly had been waiting for. Eventually ported to Mac and the 3DO, the game eventually made its way to the Sega CD. Since Rebel Assault was a game that pushed PCs of the time to the limit, you can imagine how the port turned out. We have a full review for you, so read on, and hope that your X-Wing has an ejection seat.

    Though I agree with the review I somehow enjoyed this game and played it for hours on my Mac around the 1993s . Maybe 'cause it was first real Star Wars game...

    Wasn't too bad a game. Had a certain charm.

    Bah. Damn was this game ugly. Why were so many FMV-games released on a hardware with such limited colours? What is the new footage worth in 16 colours only?
    They should have ported Super Star Wars instead. I did not love that game either, but it was okay; and the soundtrack would have really profited from the Mega CD as well as the 3D-levels. It would have made better use of the system´s capabilities.

    Truth about Super Star Wars. Heck, why not Empire and Jedi, too? And they should have put the Star Wars Trilogy on Dreamcast.

    Super Empire Strikes Back was awesome, and I would have killed for a Genesis port.

    Those Mode 7 stages would have taken a major hit though. Sega CD, perhaps?

    Well, I was talking about a Mega CD-release. No problem for the Mega CD atall, + amazing soundtrack. And you could really have put the whole trilogy on one disc. That would have sold like hot cakes.

    But Mode 7 is also absolutely possible on a stand-alone-Mega Drive. if there are good programmers at work. I have seen some really cool (unreleased) Mode 7-demos on Mega Drive already. The system is not made for that kind of thing, but if you put the 68 000 Heart on fire it can be achieved.

    I think this game isn't so bad... I had some pleasure to play it (lately).
    The interesting fact is that you have (during flight scenes) the felling to really control directions (not only the chip, the whole screen moves slightly too)...
    It is a nice effect I never saw in other FMV games... (And technically the reason why the footage is so garbagic)

    The first level is the hardest (because ultra pixelisated), for sure!
    But dodging the asteroids or the crystal rocks... pleasure!


    No, like Genesis Knight said, it really have a certain charm!
