Star Wars: Rebel Assault II: The Hidden Empire User Reviews
Extremely high-quality graphics featuring movie-quality cutscenes. Fun hidden easter eggs if you can find them. Movie-perfect music & sounds. You can customize the difficulty & CPU AI to your liking.The bad:
Graphics are a little blurry/pixelated in the cutscenes. Poor controls. Default difficulty settings are too high, even on easy levels. The game really is not that long.Summary:
The sequel to the hit "Rebel Assault" is a highly interactive addition to the Star Wars Universe. The player assumes the role of Rookie One, a bit of a hotshot pilot in the Alliance who attempts to help foil a new plot by the Empire-deploying new TIEs capable of attacking while cloaked.

Uses the light gun in a few levels.The bad:
The gameplay wasn't all that good.
The story was really cheesy along with the live action scenes.

When I got this game, I assumed that there was going to be a lot of flying and shooting. I was half right. There is a lot of shooting, but that's pretty much what you are doing the entire game. You are never actually in full control of the ship in the space scenes. All you do is shoot and ocasionally move the ship up and down an inch. You can't steer, you can't chase ships, and once a ship is off screen, that is the end of it. The ground scenes are a lot better. It still only involves shooting, but at least it is somewhat fun.
Don't waste your money on this game.
