    Does anyone think that there should be another starfighter game? I for one would like there to be. I love playing as Nym and the Havoc is one of the coolest ships out there. I enjoy the commentary between him and Reti the Toydarian in the game.

    Anyone else out there think the same as me?

    Yes, but add more advanced function, like countermeasures, advanced controlled of the energy repartition on the shields, engines and guns. In short, make a SW space shooter with the gameplay of Wing Commander Prophecy/Freespace.

    ... i figure there'll be another Starfighter game that'll come out in time for Episode III...The games seem to do quite well, sales-wise..


    I enjoy the Stafigther games, but they're much tooo easy...Especially Jedi Starfighter.. Those Force Lightning and Force-Bullet-Time powers REALLY took any challenge out of the game...

    I'd like to see a game closer to Wing Commander/Freespace, but wouldn't it be too difficult, without a keyboard, to put all of the controls necessary into a console game?

    *I* would buy another Starfighter game! :)

    Actually, Drew, it seemed to me in Starfighter that most levels I could beat with 1 try, then a few others that would take a week to beat.

    Somewhere inbetween would be nice. :-\

    "wouldn't it be too difficult, without a keyboard, to put all of the controls necessary into a console game?"

    Who said I wanted it on a console ? [face_mischief]

    But I guess it could be possible, with some tweaking.

    I haven't played JS, but S is rather easy, even in hard... Only a few mission are tricky (and in part due to my PC being choppy with Lucasarts space shooters) Well, at least the PC version.

    They should concentrate on a PT version of X-Wing. Down with arcade shooters! :p

    Down with simulations where you get the opportunity to shoot only one enemy per minute !

    to be honest with you..starfighter games are horrible. they have no re-play value or good graphics. lucasarts is doing a hideous job doing those games..
    dont worry your going to get another type starfighter game..it's called the clone wars.

    those games that you just fly around are really easy to make..pretty much you have open space and a ship ...and your just shooting ..umm..yeah that makes it very exciting.

    If you don't like 'em, don't play 'em! :) No harm done!

    Same with the sims. Except you don't shoot anything. [face_mischief] Talk about exciting.

    Hey, I didn't say I didn't enjoy it... I did. The first time. :p

    Errrm, BTW, wouldn't someone no a cheat to type during a mission to skip it ? (Yeah, I'm an EU fool, and I want to refresh the story, but can't stand to play it again.)

    EDIT : Weeeee the codes I find apparently work only with American version of the game. :mad:

    I'd like another one only if they made it more challenging. Say on the level of RL. I love the story but it seems that everytime I play I'm just watching a movie.
