The best Star Wars themed games teleport you to a distant galaxy and let you experience different roles, like a powerful Jedi or an evil Sith Lord. Some like Knights of the Old Republic will make you feel like a powerful Jedi, while in others such as Star Wars: Old Republic, you can choose to be a bounty hunter or an imperial agent.
In this guide, we have selected for you eight of the best Star Wars video games you can play today as recommended by The Force Universe, the world’s best resource for everything Star Wars. Shall we get started?
Knights of The Old Republic
Bioware delivers to you one of the most compelling Star Wars video games that is set in another universe, thousands of years ago. In the game, you will explore the galaxy when Jedi knights were countless in numbers while trying to unearth the ancient secret of Sith.
Knights of the old Republic comes with many witty characters, bucket-of bolts starships and malleability that makes you want to play the game endlessly.
Star Wars Rogue Leader: Rogue Squadron 2
Rogue leader lets you take over the empire by engaging in deadly battles with top enemy TIEs. The game is super addictive and takes you to new locations like the Cloud City of Bespin and hidden imperial bases. Overall, Rogue Leader will give you the complete Star Wars air combat experience that you are looking for.
Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast
This is hands down the ultimate Jedi Fantasy. You will run around the galaxy, chopping off storm troopers’ limbs with a lightsaber. The game makes you feel like a powerful Jedi Knight, something most games haven’t quite got right.
You can even engage multiplayers online, or find dedicated groups of players where you can take part in movie-like, one-on-one saber duels.
Star Wars: The Old Republic
The Old Republic stood for thousands of years before Darth Vader and the Emperor ruled with an iron fist. That setting, which is rarely used, was the perfect setting. BioWare grabbed this opportunity and used the historical timeline to create Star Wars.
The Old Republic gives players a vast ancient galaxy for exploration, which is not hindered by Star Wars movie canon.
Star Wars: Battlefront 2
If you like the feeling of being engaged in a battle far away in a foreign galaxy, Star Wars Battlefront 2 is your answer. Starfighter Assault mode is the superstar this time. It can see you taking the attack-and-defend mantra from Walker Assault and firing it into space.
Battlefront 2 had a rockier launch than Cliffs of Ahch-To, but it has evolved since then to be among the most accessible shooters for Star Wars fanatics.
Star wars: Squadrons
After Star Wars: TIE Fighter, you probably assumed there wasn’t another iconic starfighter game. You were wrong! Star Wars Squadrons is a combat game from EA that is way too much fun and is even better in VR.
You will enter a Starfighter’s complex cockpit and control the knobs and buttons like a real pilot as you engage in galactic space battles.
Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga
You can swing your lightsaber anyhow and break things with movie sound effects in the background, or smack your partner and watch them explode into Lego bits. The Complete Saga will satisfy your appetite for lightsaber battles and the desire to build Lego contraptions.
Lego Star Wars will take you through six movie events and let you relieve all events, from the Dual of the Fates to the destruction of the second Death Star.
Star Wars: Republic Commando
This game is exclusive to Xbox and is a gem in the Star Wars games because it has a solid foundation as a great shooter. But LucasArts still adds variety by allowing the four members to have their own individuality and voices.
If you add in a few clever designs and quality visuals, you have one of the most unique Star Wars titles to excel.
When it comes to Star Wars themed games, there is something for everyone. Whether your interest is in the cool visual graphics or you want to play as a hero or villain, the eight video games we highlighted in this post will let you explore faraway galaxies, fight with a lightsaber and even enter a Starfighter’s complex cockpit.
