“Endless climax” is probably the most appropriate statement to describe the situation of LucasArts in the late 20th century.
After the golden age with great games, most of the later games that LucasArts made were only rated normal, maybe they really ran out of ideas, maybe the gaming community put High expectations for the games that the most famous game studio created at the time, the higher the expectation, the greater the disappointment.
Since 1995, LucasArts’ annual sales have been declining. In addition, the constant “milking” of the Star Wars brand now has revealed the harm, the release of this innocent game has made gamers have higher requirements for the quality and plot of the game. .
To get out of the difficult situation, LucasArts decided to cooperate with other game studios to develop the Star Wars franchise, the game studios will take care of the game while LucasArts will take care of the distribution. The deal marks the release of the best Star Wars titles we’ve ever seen.
Below, One will list the most prominent Star Wars titles released by LucasArts during this period.
Star Wars Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader – Factor 5 – 2001
No other game can give gamers the feeling of controlling the X Wing as well as Rogue Leader.
When it was first released, the graphics of this game were in the top form, until now, Rogue Leader still looks very good even though 20 years have passed. In addition, Factor 5 has brought the movie scene “Death Star trench run” into this game excellently. Rogue Leader can definitely please even the most demanding Star Wars fans.
Therefore, it is not difficult to understand when Rogue Leader received the award “best action game” in 2001 at E3 with more than 1.7 million copies of the game sold worldwide.
Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast – Raven Software – 2002
Although there are many games that allow players to “dance” lightsaber or use divine powers, there is no name that can surpass the Jedi Outcast shooter in terms of combining the two skills ..
In Jedi Outcast, players will play the role of Kyle Katarn, a Jedi with a different identity as a former Empire officer to explore the world of Star Wars after the Return of the Jedi movie timeline. In addition, gamers can also meet Luke Skywalker at the new Jedi temple on the planet Yavin IV. Rarely does the Star Wars game allow us to delve deeply into the plot like Jedi Outcast.
Most of the reviews about Jedi Outcast are very positive, but this game still receives many blame for its gritty gameplay. In terms of revenue, Jedi Outcast is also not as successful as Rogue Leader.
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic – BioWare – 2003
BioWare – the Canadian game studio has created a Star Wars game that in many people’s opinion is even better than the original movies.
Knights of the Old Republic brings players to the period of 4000 years before the Empire was established with a Light – Dark system that changes depending on the player’s actions. Our decisions will determine the future of the universe.
So will you save the Republic or rule cold-blooded? It all depends on your decisions.
Just four days after its release, the Knight of the Old Republic Xbox version was sold out, earning the second spot on the top-selling console game list in its first month of release. According to 2007 data, a total of more than 3.2 million copies of Knight of the Old Republic were sold on both PC and Xbox platforms.
Of course Knights of the Old Republic received a lot of praise from the gaming community, won many awards in 2003 and still remains No. 1 on the list of best Star Wars titles. .
Star Wars: Battlefront II – Pandemic Studios – 2005
Perhaps we are more familiar with EA’s Battlefront series, but Pandemic Studios’ Battlefront II still has a very loyal fan base.
This third-person shooter game brings players to fierce battles between the Republic and CIS, then between the Empire and the Rebels. Gamers can choose from 1 of 6 different classes to complete a lot of levels as well as diverse game modes, in which multiplayers mode is the most popular.
In just 2 years since its release, Battlefront II has sold more than 6 million copies worldwide. In terms of reviews, many people believe that only the multiplayers mode of this game is worth the money, although Pandemic Studios has improved the game modes quite a lot from season 1.
After 15 years, many gamers still think that the Galactic Conquest game mode and the multiplayers map of Battlefront II (2005) are still much better than EA’s entire Battlefront II (2017) game. Or are these people EA antifans disguised?
In the 2000s, LucasArts himself developed a few Star Wars titles, but all of them were rather faint compared to the names that Mormon listed above.
It is also sad that a famous game studio once fell into such a monstrous situation. Perhaps the failure of the game in this period led Disney to shut down LucasArts after acquiring Lucasfilm in 2012.
