About This Game

It is a time of great rejoicing in the galaxy. Luke Skywalker, with the help of Wedge Antilles, has blown up the Death Star. But there is little time to celebrate. The mighty Empire is gathering strength for a determined, all-out assault on the Rebel forces.

To save the Rebel Alliance from this Imperial onslaught, Luke Skywalker and Wedge Antilles have assembled the Rogue Squadron, a group of twelve of the most skilled battle-tested starfighter pilots. You will fly into battle as Luke Skywalker, to engage in intense, fast-paced planetary air-to-ground and air-to-air missions ‒ dogfights, search and destroy, reconnaissance, bombing runs, rescue assignments, and more.

  • Take on the Galactic Empire in X-wings, Y-wings, A-wings, V-wings, and snowspeeders.
  • Prove you’ve got what it takes against a slew of the Empire’s best and baddest, including AT-AT walkers, AT-STs, TIE fighters and more.
  • Test your flying skill through extraordinary environments ‒ over water, through canyons, deserts, and volcanic regions.
  • Astonishing 3D details include real time lighting and special effects (explosions, smoke, engine glow, tracer fire and more).

I 100% recommend using a joystick or controller from this game.

An elegant game from a more civilized era, impressive for its time and still fun today. So glad that they ported the game that dominated a large portion of my childhood. You get a chance to pilot many craft from the X-Wing all the way to a tie interceptor and the Millenium Falcon on quite a few notable missions. While a bit short by todays standards, it still manages to evoke a childlike feeling of excitement piloting star wars craft and will have you on the edge of your seat in excitement.

It would be amazing to play this game again if it weren't entirely un-♥♥♥♥ing-playable. Not only are the controls a mess, the available resolutions are a joke. The game looks like absolute ♥♥♥♥.

The biggest issue I had, even worse than the ♥♥♥♥ controls and poorly ported graphics, is the fact that the camera just... sucks. For no reason at all, it will sometimes just stop following you. Or lag behind a ton, as if it can't keep up with your x-wing. I cannot fathom why these issues are happening or how they slipped the net of QC (if there was in fact any QC).

Do yourself a favor, don't waste the money. Don't ruin your childhood memories of an AMAZING game by trying to play this piece of ♥♥♥♥ cash grab of a port.

Definite 1/10. The one point is simply because I have fond memories of this game.

I only tried it with a mouse (maybe a controller works better) but the input lag makes it really hard to control - wish there was an n64 controller hookup lol

Woho, Rogue Squadron.

The most played action game on my N64 as a kid. I only could borrow this game so I always had to wait until it's next available.

Now with more modern graphics. Too bad it does just my mouse as a joystick and is therefore impossible to control.

Hopefully it will work with my controller. But still if you can get it to work it is great!

this is a major piece of my childhood here, one of the first video games i ever played. hell i still have my original disk for it (though it wont work cuz i havent had windows xp in forever). i remember playing for hours with my friends trying to beat my father's score. this game is still one of the best thought out games iv ever played. good story, good mechanics for its time. get a joystick, its the only way to properly play this game, one you wont crash your x-wing all the time, and two its actaully more challenging and realistic that way. Rogue Squadron 3D is a classic and a must have for any Star Wars fan. GET IT

Although the controls may be a little hard to get used to without a controller, and the game being harder than I remember when I was little, I am in love with Valve from brining this treasured memory back into my possession.

Please do work on placing a proper steam interface into it doe.

I use to play this game constantly on the 64, but I can't play it all on PC now. It treats the mouse as a joystick which makes you roll in every direction instead of turning. There's no way to bind movement to keyboard so you're stuck with it.

Got it for nostalgia sake. It runs a lot more smoothly than what my N64 could output, most definitely. My only gripe about the game is the default camera mode can't be set, so I have to cycle everytime I start a mission. oh, and Steam overlay doesn't work within the game, boo.


I hope Rogue Leader gets a release as well.

I got this game mostly for nostalgia's sake. I'm a big star wars fan myself, but this game helped build up the fanboy in me for it. If you played this game growing up on N64/Older Windows PC, I suggest get it for the nostalgia factor. I sure did, and I'm not disappointed one bit, it's just how I remember it.

Pros:
+Fly some of the most iconic fighters in the Rebel Alliance such as the X-Wing, T-47 Snowspeeder, and more up against some of the most Iconic Galactic Empire's own Fighters/Walkers, such as the TIE Fighter/Interceptor, AT-ST, AT-AT and more.
+Builds onto the storyline between Star Wars Episodes 4 and 5, as it shows the Rebel Alliance taking the fight to the evil Galactic Empire/defending their resources against the Empire also.
+GET MEDALS! If you earn enough Gold Medals on Any of the main mission, gain access to secret missions/vehicles also(no spoilers on vehicles/missions though, use the force/piloting skills to unlock them).
+For as old as this game is, and that Steam has brought it back, it works on newer systems, including Win10(Some users have said otherwise, I have Win10 and works for me).
Neutral:
+/-:The controls aren't too terrible, just make sure to use "WASD" and the arrow keys to fly. "WASD" and mouse flying doesn't work to well, well at least for me.
+/-: I've read this game is xbox 360 controller compatible, but when I tried it, it didn't work for me. So I'm neutral on controller figuration.
Cons:
-If your talking to friends and decide to play this game, best you have a laptop/phone with the Steam App/another device with access to Steam chat available. The Steam Overlay WILL NOT work in this game.

So if you like Star Wars and have $10 to spend, pick this game up. It's not that bad of a game, and that fact this game has no multiplayer, is no problem to me.

Finally it's been long time coming 18 years have passed but "Star Wars: Rogue Squadron 3D" is now available on Steam. It might not have graphic fidelity compared to it's sequel "Star Wars: Rogue Leader II" but for it's time this game was considered be one of the best space-flight simulators of 1998 on the N64 and PC.

The PC version is without a doubt is the best version of the game which can out-put at these Resolutions:

640x480
800x600
1024x768
1280x1024

It would seem issues that were plaguing the older version of the PC game have been addressed which could be found playing this game on modern hardware and 64bit operating system so far works fine on Windows 10;The persistent game bug which would crash after every "Save" when completing a mission; is now gone :).

I am very excited it's finally come to steam only last year I did "Play-Through; it might of came out in 1998 but it holds up incredibly well for very dated Space flight simulator.

It was also my 13th Birthday Present from my Dad; I got this game on N64. Star Wars Rogue Squadron 3D put's you right into the action that Star Wars Universe is known for; it really feel's like you taking on Empire as Luke Skywalker and Wedge Antilles while piloting the many space Crafts such as: X-Wing, Millennium Falcon and the Y-Wing.

This is ultimate Space Dog Fighter/Simulator experience you are ever going to get; the creators behind this game "Factor 5" managed to get the balance just right "A True Star Wars feel while also making the game feel immersive re-playable arcade fun"

Positives

+ Great Voice Acting
+ Cinematic makes feel like watching Star Wars Film
+ Sound Effect & Music just awesome
+ Space Craft Design have been faithful to Star Wars Universe
+ Missions Galore this game has no intention of boring you to death but defiantly the opposite.

+ Addictive replay value with insentive revisit missions and get your gold insignia badge.

+ Graphics: The game came out in 1998 it holds up well, aged like fine wine.

Negatives

- No Windowed Mode
- Factor 5 Co-Developers went out business so no more Star Wars Rogue Squadron Games :(

Star Wars: Rogue Squadron 3D gets solid 10/10 from me.

Last but not least it plays great on Nova's controller sorry I mean 360 controller hehehe...
