The game does a improbable job of constructing you’re feeling like a Sith lord as you tear by means of enemies within the beat-’em-up fashion of its gameplay. The solely factor holding this game again is the truth that it’s operating the Wii model which is the weakest visually and has much less content material.

A basic within the eyes of many a Star Wars fan, Jedi Outcast noticed the return of Kyle Katarn, an iconic character from the non-canon space of Star Wars.

The gameplay is unrelenting and truly fairly difficult as enemies simply don’t hold again from blasting you and your staff.

This is the most effective instance of how lightsaber fight works in any Star Wars game and makes you’re feeling like a real Jedi, as you not solely get to battle alongside Kyle Katarn but once more however Luke Skywalker himself.

3. Knights of the Old Republic: The Sith Lords

As this record nears the tip, that is where issues turn out to be a bit tighter within the race. A very sturdy title, enhancing in some ways over its predecessor, The Sith Lords continues what the unique KOTOR did nicely and ups it ten-fold. With higher fight and a brand new story that centered much less on good versus evil and extra on the gray space of the pressure, it introduced gamers one thing new to chew on. Though this title does a lot right, it simply doesn’t beat your entire being that’s the first KOTOR.

This is by far probably the most intricately created Star Wars video games on the market. You can play all 9 movies’ campaigns, you’ll be able to journey to planets and their open environments, and there are a whole bunch of playable characters. I used to be blown away after I first performed this and proceed to be each time I boot it up, it’s that good.

1. Knights of the Old Republic

What could be mentioned about KOTOR that hasn’t already been mentioned. This title revolutionized RPG titles far past the realm of simply Star Wars and is what made BioWare a family title. It is the final word solution to reside out your Star Wars fantasy and nonetheless can’t be matched by way of immersion that gamers can get from the franchise. This game nonetheless holds up and deserves its primary spot because it actually is the most effective Star Wars game on Nintendo Switch.

That’s our full ranked record of each Star Wars game on the Nintendo Switch. All of those titles are nice, however there are just a few that fly above the remaining by way of what the builders achieved for his or her gamers.

These titles should reside on, eternally.
