Star Wars games on the dreamcast (Are they good?)

Post#1 » Wed May 08, 2019 1:21 am

Okay. So I know there are a handful, of Star Wars games on the dreamcast.
And I know about Star Wars Episode 1 Racer, and it's a decent game, even though I kinda agree with the classic game room guys, that this game should have had, way better graphics on the dreamcast. Like literally. :lol:

But what about the other games, such as Star Wars Episode 1: Jedi Power Battles and Star Wars Demolition? I wonder if there is there any other?

PS: As for the name Star Wars Demolition, the name alone is misleading, making it sound like the game, is a construction site wrecking ball game. :lol:

lol still looks like N64

Demolition is sweet especially that coming from the V8 devs my favorite vehicular combat ever

But been long since I've played that.. I think the victory+defeat voice clips do play? But for w/e blasted reason that was forgotten for V82 Dreamcast >.<

Star wars demolition is terrible. Just awful.

Jedi power battles is cool. Fun to play co op with another player too.

Jedi Power Battles is a fun co-op hack & slash. You can unlock Darth Maul as a playable character, that alone makes it worth it for me LOL

If you like Vigilante 8, or Twisted Metal, then you will probably like Star Wars Demolition.

You would think that. I love the twisted metal games and found star wars demolition to be really bad.

Everyone back in the day seemed to agree that 'Demolition' is not a good game. I remember trying the demo and having a hell of a time controlling the vehicles.

'Episode 1 Racer' is one of the best racing games on the DC. Having owned both the N64 and DC version, there is a step up in graphics on the DC. Also, I think it's based on the original PC release.

'Jedi Power Battles' is good, but it's hard to judge jumps and the hit detection can be spotty at times. One thing that absolutely fails is the audio. It basically loops the 'Star Wars' theme over and over (very quietly) and the sound effects, if they're present at all, are soft and basic.

Strangely, I was never a fan of Twisted Metal. :lol:
I've watched vids of Vigilante 8, but it wasn't my style, probably because it kinda reminded me a bit, of Twisted Metal. The Star Wars Demolition vid was interesting. A Twisted Metal type Star Wars game, in the Star Wars universe? Lol! It's an Interesting idea though. Not my style of game, but after looking at the vid, I might check it out one of these days.

Just thinking here:
I wish there was a Star Wars light saber game, with an option to play in first person, or third person view, on the dreamcast or other consoles. If there was, that would be cool.
