The Best-Ever Star Wars Games

If you are interested in piloting an X-Wing Starfighter, wielding a lightsaber like a Jedi Knight, or just tackling the Empire on your own terms, you are going to need to get your hands on these games!

Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast, 2002

This is the ultimate Jedi fantasy brought to life, a game that lets you roam the galaxy battling the Empire, severing stormtrooper limbs with your lightsaber, and using the Force to play and win. You are guaranteed to end up feeling like a member of the Order with Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast and the developers, Aspyr, Lucasarts, Raven Software, Vicarious Visions, have managed to create every aspect of the experience superbly. 

Knights of the Old Republic, 2003

Aspyr Media, BioWare, and Obsidian Entertainment deliver one of the most enthralling Star Wars™ narratives ever with Knights of the Old Republic, a Role-Playing Game. The Universe is set in a totally different time period, thousands of years before the events in the movies take place, and it has been fleshed out in ways you couldn’t imagine. You get to discover the Ancient Sith’s secrets, explore the Galaxy back when the Jedi Knights numbered in their thousands, and find out why the Sandpeople hate outsiders as much as they do. 

Star Wars™: Republic Commando, 2005

LucasArts developed this gem exclusively for Xbox. It is an excellent shooter, which is a sound foundation, but some much-needed variety has been injected into the action thanks to all four members of the team having their own personalities and voices. Similarly to how NZ betting sites allow you to pick and choose the sports, odds, and markets you most enjoy, Star Wars™: Republic Commando lets you tailor  your own adventure in The Clone Wars.

Star Wars™ Rogue Leader: Rogue Squadron 2, 2001

Players are dropped into the cockpits of various ships from the Universe in Star Wars™ Rogue Leader: Rogue Squadron 2, amidst some of the films’ most memorable parts and some other epic battles as well. It really is the ultimate air-combat experience, replete with a Death Star trench run and an It’s a Trap! battle over Endor. The game has aged remarkably well too, and you will have a blast enjoying a tour of classic locations and new ones. 

Star Wars™ Battlefront 2, 2005

Although the story campaign in this Pandemic Studios offering is a little short, if you are interested in experiencing some first-rate, polished multiplayer action then you are in for a good time. The Starfighter Assault mode is the star of the Battlefront 2 show and it will see you hurtling through space over Endor trying to dodge the ruined Deathstar’s debris as you enjoy very cinematic if slightly chaotic entertainment. 

The Galactic Assault mode is also stunning, offering as it does incredible 32-player battles, and it is safe to say that Battlefront 2 has more than stood the test of time to become one of the most accessible shooter games for fans.
