    Default Star Wars Arcade Trilogy

    A continued staple of what remains of arcades in the United States, this game is an absolute beast.



    One of my all-time favorite arcade games. Made in 1999, this is some of the best on-rails shooting the Star Wars universe has to offer. If you like the Rogue Squadron series, or Star Wars Arcade on 32X (Whose arcade version was the predecessor to this game), or even the classic 1980 Vector Graphics arcade game, then this game is for you. The best scenes from all three trilogies in a game that to my eyes, still looks sharp. The gameplay is super-tight, and I only wish that it had gotten a home port for the Dreamcast or something.

    Anyone else here a fan?

    I absolutely loved this game. I played it every time I saw it.

    Great game, always super fun to play. Shame no home port was ever done.

    I wanted to include this game in my book, but there was almost no development info on it.

    This really needed a Dreamcast port, I've always wanted to play it.

    Apparently it can be emulated via the Model 3 emulator. I feel like I've seen it in just about every arcade I've been in in recent years though. It's a staple.

    Supermodel - I've been tinkering with that, it's slow on my laptop though. I'll keep my eye on it and see what I come with after a bit more playing about. The only time I ever saw this was at Affleck's Palace in Manchester (it's an -ALTERNATIVE!- type of shopping place). As it was only about nine in the morning I didn't have a go on it for fear of looking like a weirdo, not sure why I should have, but I think it's because I was the only one in the shop at the time! I regret not having a go now...

    I first discovered this arcade game on a cross channel ferry, during a school trip to France back in '99, and could not stop playing it! I was great at the duels with Boba Fett and Vader. Pity this never saw a Dreamcast port as the console could have handled it with ease I reckon. Having said that it was a bit short so it would have needed to have been padded out with extra levels if they had done a home port.

    My local Walmart had the game in their Gamezone space for a pretty long time. Loved it, but I'd always lose to Vader in the light saber duel.
    A Black Falcon: no, computer games and video games are NOT the same thing. Video games are on consoles, computer games are on PC. The two kinds of games are different, and have significantly different design styles, distribution methods, and game genre selections. Computer gaming and console (video) gaming are NOT the same thing."
