Star Wars - Rebel Assault


"Rebel forces have won their first battle against the dark side... But the battle has only just begun"

"As Rookie One, You are thrust into a 3D galaxy far, far, away to crush the evil Empire once and for all.  Take your T16 Skyhopper on a training run through Beggar's Canyon... Then dodge asteroids and blast TIE fighter sin a deep space rumble... tackle a fleet on menacing AT-ATs on the icy tundra of Hoth... and ultimately annihilate Vader and the evil Empire with a kamikaze trench-run in the infamous Death Star."

Your chance to be someone who isn't Luke Skywalker (honest) take on the Empire.  The opening levels are slow, concentrating on flight training at the rebel base, but a password system means that you only have to get through them once.  Levels vary between space battles, surface fights and on-foot sections, adding some variety.  The graphics are perhaps a little rough, but you can always see what's happening.  Cut scenes are a mixture of sections from the film and new footage to provide a background story, and look surprisingly good - but are sadly unskippable.  The sound is, of course, excellent, from the opening theme, through the speech both in cut-scenes and the game, to X-Wing lasers sounding exactly as they should.  A challenging and enjoyable game that is quite easy to find.
Two demos of this game were released, featuring Chapter 11 (issue 1 of Sega Pro CD) and Chapter 8 (issue 15 of Mega Power)
