Star Wars: Rogue Squadron lets you strap into the cockpit of an X-wing fighter as you attempt to lead your squadron to victory over the mighty Empire. Set between Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back, the game spans sixteen 3D levels in a variety of locales including Mos Eisley, Kessel, the Imperial Construction Yards, Mon Calamari, and Corellia.
You'll also be given the chance to fly four additional ships (plus some hidden ones) during the course of play: an A-wing, Y-wing, V-wing and snowspeeder. While the ships all use laser cannons as their primary weapons, they also carry secondary weapons such as photon torpedoes or concussion missiles, depending on the craft.
After listening to your objectives, you'll be sent to a planet's surface (there are no space battles in the game) to carry out the mission, whether it's protecting Rebel bases or ships from Imperial attacks, rescuing downed crews, wrapping up AT-ATs with tow cables, or simply mounting an assault on the Empire's key bases. Since you won't be flying solo during the missions, your wingmen will keep you apprised of the situation at all times with radio chatter (over 30 minutes worth of speech has been included).
As the founding members of Rogue Squadron, Luke Skywalker and Wedge Antilles are the two primary characters you'll play as during the game. This 128-Meg cartridge supports both the Rumble Pak and Expansion Pak for feedback and Hi-Res mode, respectively, and includes three data files to record your initials and progress. The game will also keep track of the medals you receive, which are based on how well you perform during each mission. Earn gold medals to unlock secrets! ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
