We love Star Wars; we love video games. We love when they come together, but it doesn’t always work out. So, we’re going to list some of the worst Star Wars video games that have come out, much to our displeasure.
Star Wars: Rebel Assault
Trying as hard as it possibly can to beat Rogue Squadron to the punch, “Star Wars: Rebel Assault” is one of the original X-Wing piloting games to come out. Sadly, it has none of the charm, graphics, fun, or control that the far-superior game possesses. A boring plot put a cap on this stinker.
Star Wars: Yoda Stories
Adventure games are a thing from the old days of video games, but have mostly fallen away from the popular eye. Too bad “Star Wars: Yoda Stories” didn’t know that! Set during Luke’s training with Yoda, this game has Luke travel around Dagobah and gather items. Each time you play is different, but far from being a rogue-like unique experience, the game is boring and stagnant.
Star Wars: Demolition
Vehicle battles like Twisted Metal were getting popular, and a company that had experience making rip-offs tried their hand at a Star Wars version, and “Star Wars: Demolition” was born. The controls are sluggish, and the battles are maddening, but the worst part of this Star Wars game is its surprising lack of Star Wars. There are a few vehicles from the series, but they have strange designs, and other vehicles have never been seen before.
Star Wars: Obi-Wan
Not without its good points, this early Xbox title, released along with the first prequel movie, falls to a painful experience with terrible camera control, poor graphics, and uninspired level designs make this game a mediocre play at best, agonizing torture at worst.
Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones
Released soon after Episode II, This GBA game had decent graphics but nothing else. With headache-causing controls, strikingly bad level design, and enemy spawns that came out of nowhere to smack you in the back of the head, even having the willpower to get to the end of this game only rewards you with an insanely difficult boss battle against Count Dooku – after which there is little more than credits.
It’s okay, it’s over. Let the bad memories sink back down. Did we forget some of the worst out there? Is anyone brave enough to stand up and defend some of these games?
