Star Wars: which are the best Star Wars video games?
There is no doubt that the Star Wars universe has always been appreciated within the gaming landscape. In fact, the titles dedicated to the saga amount to dozens, but which are considered the best ten by the public and critics? Let's find out together.

10) Star War Empire at War

The only representative of the RTS genre on our list, he was praised for the technical sector, the visual fidelity to the franchise and the spectacularity of the space battles . Set a few years before Episode IV, the game features two alternate campaigns with the Rebel Alliance or the Galactic Empire. Its only expansion, Forces of Corruption, introduces the Zann Consortium, an organized crime faction accompanied by an original campaign.

9) Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order

The action adventure of Respawn Entertainment places the player in the role of Cal Kestis, a young padawan who survived the infamous order 66. The title was appreciated for its original plot and technical sector, being especially criticized for the repetitiveness of the combat system (souls-like), the poor customization and the absence of additional content. On you will find the review of Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order.

8) Star Wars Battlefront 2 (2005)

The innovative multiplayer of Pandemic Studios brought a lot of meat to the field compared to its predecessor: maps, classes, vehicles and heroes from the Old and New Trilogy. New single-player modes and a dedicated campaign, as well as the huge variety of mods offered by the community, make this title a real gem of the past.

7) Star Wars The Old Republic

The wait for the Bioware-branded MMO was divided equally between hype and skepticism. Yet, net of expectations, The Old Republic manages to convince even the most reluctant slices of fans, offering an unpublished story (which can be faced both by siding with the Sith Empire and the Old Republic), fluid fights, development of the PG faithful to the originals KOTOR and the iconic locations of the saga. Peculiarity of the title is the possibility to play it entirely in single player.

6) Knights of the Old Republic 2: The Sith Lords

The sequel to the acclaimed RPG developed by BioWare had the difficult task to match the enormous success of the predecessor. The player plays the role of a Jedi exile, expelled from the Order for unknown reasons (at least initially), who has lost his connection with the Force. The game re-proposes the classic combat and party management mechanics that made the series famous, without missing a beat in the narrative and in the freedom of choice.

5) LEGO Star Wars The Complete Saga

The hilarious tribute to the saga by LEGO could not be missing in our ranking. This collection combines the two original LEGO Star Wars, allowing us to relive the adventures of all six films, with a few little brick-based extras.

4) Jedi Knight 2 Jedi Outcast

Have you ever wanted to hold a lightsaber? By putting yourself in the shoes of Kyle Katarn, agent of the New Republic and Jedi Knight, your dream can come true. Jedi Outcast was especially acclaimed for the feel of the lightsaber and ranged combat, the storyline and the implementation of Force powers.

3) Star Wars Battlefront 2 (2017)

Accomplice a non-brilliant launch weighed down by microtransactions, the last chapter of the Battlefront saga was initially received in a lukewarm manner by the public and critics, despite a significant expansion compared to the previous one and the introduction of a much-requested single player campaign. Over the three years following its release, the developers have passionately followed the game and responded positively to fan criticism, enriching it with playable modes, heroes, maps and classes. Battlefront 2 stands as the most complete and immersive Star Wars multiplayer FPS ever. To learn more, we refer you to the review of Star Wars Battlefront 2.

2) Star Wars Jedi Knight Dark Forces 2

Critically considered a timeless classic, it has often been compared with its similar Quake. Also in this chapter you will play the role of Kyle Katarn, a young agent of the New Republic who will discover the ways of the Jedi. Huge added value is the huge variety of mods in the community.

1) Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic

The undisputed king of the leaderboard, the original Knights of The Old Republic was the first role-playing game set in the Expanded Universe of Star Wars. Based on the tabletop role-playing game from Wizards of The Coast, the title was enthusiastically received for its intriguing storyline, top-notch writing and character characterization, all topped off with great attention to character development and the powers of the Force. . The combat system, it must be said, has not aged very well and could be the only impediment for those (few) fans who still have to recover it.
