Top Tier Star Wars Game That's Not For Everyone
When it comes to videogame the Star Wars franchise rarely disappoints, I would say this game is no exception. It's not often you get a Star Wars game where you don't play as a jedi, let alone an FPS (although the protagonist would appear in another game as a jedi, but I digress). This was originally released on PC in the early to mid 90s, utilizing the same graphics engine as the original Doom with pseudo 3D environments populated by sprites. What sets this apart aside from the setting and enemies are the level designs which are multi-tiered and feature points of interest that are important to your objectives, and instead of trying to complete a maze filled with enemies you're trying to complete mission objectives before returning to your ship. While I've never played the original PC version I can tell right away that the resolution is lower in this version, it's not game breaking for me but it might be a turn off for others, if that's the case you're better off getting this game off of Steam. For console FPS players the controls will not feel the same, this is from before the release of the DualShock controller so you're only able to use the d-pad, and the buttons every action are mapped to are not what you're used to. While up and down allow you to move forward and back you will be rotating with left and right, and if you're looking to strafe you have to hold down a button to turn left and right into strafing, the same goes for aiming up and down, and there is no option to map weapon firing to the shoulder buttons so you'll have to use one of the face buttons. If all of this sounds like a turn off then you're better off going for the version on Steam, again. However if non of this bothers you and like me you're not a PC gamer this is a fantastic title, I know I've been enjoying it and as such I recommend it to anyone who's comfortable with the unorthodox by today's standards controls.
