Based on a novel it doesn't even follow!
3 February 2006 | by (In a Chair in my room) – See all my reviews

Shadows of the empire was originally a novel. I guess it was so damn good they decided to make a Video game out of it.

Anyways, the game follows the beginning of episode 5, all the way to before episode 6 starts. in the game, You are in control of rebel dash rendar, who just happens to have a ship quite similar to Han solo's ship, the Millennium Falcon. Anyways, after the 3rd level, the story starts.

I'm not going to spoil the story, but i can tell you this - don't play this game if you haven't read the novel. because the novel is very different.

But however, this game is for the Experts. It took me a freaking month to pass the levels 5-9. but believe me, level 10 is easy.

Here's another thing. There's several modes you play in. there's fixed camera levels, where the camera follows the person's back. There's Flight simulator mode, and there's also a mode where you shoot at enemy ships from inside your own. the ship moves automatically, courtesy of your robot.

Anyways, this is a game for all star wars fanatics.
