I’m a sucker for old school games. Yar’s Revenge and Pole Position still fire my circuits. So after years of struggling with dodgy emulators, I finally hit the jackpot. I was browsing through Toys R Us when I saw it. It was a copy of the preview disk of Rogue Squadron III for about $5. However the demo wasn’t the reason I bought it nor the price. On it was a full, arcade perfect translation of the original 1983 Atari Star Wars arcade game. This game is amazing! It was probably years ahead of its time and is still great fun even by today’s standards. I’ve never had the chance to play the numerous home versions on consoles like Atari 2600 so I don’t know how faithful they were, but it works brilliantly on the Gamecube. The analog stick gives you ample control, and the digitized voices come through clearly(as good as you can get from a facsimile of 80s technology). Now that I’ve got this gem, all that’s left to do is to try and get a hold of Rez.
