Xbox Ques: is there a Rogue Squadron type game for it?

My 7 year old nephew has recently moved into the Xbox realm from his old N64. He loves Star Wars and really enjoyed Rogue Squadron and Shadows of the Empire. Do these games exist in the Xbox world...I haven't seen them. If not, are there comparable Star Wars based games?

Thanks in advance!

I don't know about "comparable Star Wars based games", but I know there are a few Xbox star wars titles and a few flying mission games.

If he can bear to part the Star Wars aspect, Crimson Skies is an incredible game!!!

Besides KOTOR and Clone Wars, I can't really think of any Star Wars games for the Xbox.

Try searching Gamerankings.com for "Star Wars" on the Xbox console.
It's a pretty good and thorough site!

I plan on picking up Secret Weapons as soon as it hits 19.99

Back on topic, both Star Wars Starfighter and Jedi Starfighter are decent (but not great) Rougue Squadron wannabes. Worth the $5 -$20 you can find them for in my opinion.

Well it should be noted that both starfighter games are very floaty compared to the tight controls of the rogue franchise. But really they're about it on the xbox , unless like squi23 suggest you just go with Crimson Skies.

Isn't there a rumor going around that the Rogue Squadron games are going to appear on Xbox later this year?

I just did some searching on the Net and seems like that there is quite the rumor that Factor 5 (the publisher of Rogue Squad) is disappointed in the sales of the Gamecube and are in the process of revamping a version for the Xbox to ride the sucess. Some of the rumors talk about a Live aspect of the game. Some rumors are that the game may be released about the same time that the Original Trilogy comes out later this year on DVD.

ngp, don't let those incredible rumors (I hope they're true!) stop you from running to the store and getting Crimson Skies. A fantastic game, single player and multiplayer.

Definitely! I think from what I've read and heard about Crimoson skies, it'll still be a buy! Thanks!
