Top 10 Worst Star Wars Games
The 10 Worst Star Wars Games
10. KINECT STAR WARS
At the 10th spot is Kinect Star Wars for the Xbox 360 Kinect. The general idea of the game is to use Kinect’s technology with the gameplay which would involve body movements. It may seem like a great idea but the execution is totally wrong. The gameplay tends to be repetitive and boring. Darth Vader and Storm Troopers dancing? That sure is meme-worthy but it is just ridiculous for serious Star Wars fans. Boss battles are uninspiring, the Lightsaber movements are disappointing, and the campaign completely forgettable. All these things make this game one of the worst Star Wars games to see the light of day.
9. STAR WARS JEDI ARENA
Star Wars Jedi Arena takes the 9th spot. This is based on Episode 4: A New Hope. The game launched way back in 1983 for the Atari 2600. All in all the game is just simply tiring. There will be two Jedi Knights trying to defend themselves from the laser blasters of the seeker by “swinging” their Lightsabers while at the same time trying to attack each other’s shields. The player who gets three direct hits will lose and the other declared as the Jedi Master. It’s a boring and frustrating game. Although critics did praise the game’s themed visuals and sounds.
8. STAR WARS EPISODE 2 ATTACK OF THE CLONES
On to the 8th spot and we have Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones for the Game Boy Advance. Fans had expected a lot from this game since it was based on the movie of the same title. However, the game received a lot of negative reviews because the gameplay felt redundant and the levels were not challenging at all. The controls and level design were poor and the checkpoints are lacking. This is a game that shouldn’t have been released in the first place. Getting the game is just a waste of both time and money.
7. STAR WARS YODA STORIES
Star Wars Yoda Stories is the game on the seventh spot. This launched for both the PC and the Game Boy Color. This is a game that failed in so many aspects. First, it doesn’t really have a central goal or plot. It just has Luke Skywalker doing some errands. The visuals are also poor and the game does lack controls for the character. This is one of those games that could be done without the Star Wars name and theme and it would be just bleh.
6. STAR WARS MASTERS OF TERÄS KÄSI
On to the number 6th place, we have Star Wars Masters Of Teras Kasi. This is a fighting game that launched in 1997 for the PlayStation 1. Players would have to choose their fighters like Luke, Leia, Han Solo, Chewbacca, Boba Fett, and Darth Vader, the goal is to relearn Teras Kasi, which is a lost art. It does seem like a fine idea, but what makes it sucky is that the character movement is not impressive, the combos are uninteresting, and the characters are unbalanced. Movements are slow, combos are boring, and some characters are crazy overpowered. This is one game that tried to bank on the Star Wars title but failed miserably.
5. STAR WARS FLIGHT OF THE FALCON
We are halfway there! The fifth spot belongs to Star Wars Flight of the Falcon. This is a Gameboy Advance game that launched in 2003. Players will play as the Millenium Falcon going on missions. This had been inspired by the original trilogy. The game is lacking in terms of gameplay but it actually has nice sound effects and background music. The game is a pixelated mess though making it hard to play, the controls are also a pain to work with as it will only allow you to shoot at the middle section even though there are some enemies coming in from the sides. Another thing is that there are no checkpoints, turn off your Gameboy Advance and its back to the start for you buddy! Trust me, this is not worth your time or money.
4. STAR WARS OBI-WAN
Star Wars Obi-Wan is in fourth place. The game was promised to launch as a PC game, however, what happened is that it only launched for the Xbox in 2001. Another thing that was promised about the game was that it would have an objective-based multiplayer mode as well as an online play. Those things were not made available as well which made the game dreadful. Players would be playing as Obi-Wan with his handy Light Saber. The only thing that you will be doing in the game is to go from point A to point B and defeat the enemies in between, and that is it. As a plus, Obi-Wan can do a forward flip and has force powers.
3. STAR WARS ROGUE SQUADRON 3 REBEL STRIKE
The third spot belongs to Star Wars Rogue Squadron III: Rebel Strike from Factor 5. This had been a highly anticipated game since the studio was able to produce two high-rated Star Wars games prior to Star Wars Rogue Squadron III: Rebel Strike. The game, however, had been a disappointment because it had a poor game design. A plot had been attempted to be introduced but critics think that wasn’t necessary. The gameplay featured mostly on-foot missions instead of controlling a starfighter which was disappointing. The weapons also automatically lock to enemy soldiers which doesn’t give the game any challenge at all and it makes it feel repetitive. The game actually had so much potential but it did have so much going on though. The game had been praised for its graphics and dogfights.
We are almost there! On the top 2 spots of the Worst Star Wars Games Ever is the Star Wars The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes. The game launched in 2009 on Steam where it received mostly negative reviews. The level design of the game is linear and the controls are really not that keyboard friendly. Players get to choose their favorite Jedi heroes and “slice and dice” throughout the game. The reviews of the game said that the gameplay tends to be repetitive. If you ‘slice and dice’ throughout the whole game, that really can get repetitive. The game will surely be appreciated by children but hardcore fans wouldn’t.
1. STAR WARS THE CLONE WARS LIGHTSABER DUELS
And our number 1 Worst Star Wars Game Ever goes to Star Wars: The Clone Wars – Light Saber Duels. This launched in 2008 for the Nintendo Wii. The game had cartoonish visuals that looked like it came from the Disney Channel. The gameplay was also tiring as players would need to swing the Wii remote so much. Poor motion control recognition also meant that the movements were not recognized so moving your arms around for nothing is infuriating. This game could be liked by youngsters first for the visuals and let’s face it, they can swing their arms forever if they want to without getting tired.
