10 Best Star Wars Games You Can Play On PC Right Now
There are more Star Wars games than there are films, some good, some bad, some legendary. These are the best Star Wars games on PC – well, our favourites. Of course we’d love to hear your best Star Wars PC games, too, so share them in the comments. What makes a top Star Wars game? Is it a game that pushes forward the lore, one that captures the feeling of being a Jedi (or Sith, boo hiss), or ones that simply transport us to those mad alien worlds. Whatever your approach, and whatever genre you love, there should be something here to tick your box.
And while you’re watching our greatest Star Wars games list we’ll be working on a Jedi Fallen Order review in time for early next week. Early impressions are good, so here’s hoping it delivers throughout. If you’d like to check out more words on best Star Wars video games, check out this link:
Star Wars Episode 1 Racer is a much-beloved racing game based on the podracing bit from Episode I: The Phantom Menace. It holds up really well and works right off the bat with any standard controller, the only thing you need to know if you go back to it is it crashes if more than one external USB device is attached, like a set of wireless headphones. Simply unplug, launch the game, and plug things back in, and you’ll be fine.
Knights Of The Old Republic 2 is Obsidian Entertainment’s rougher but better-written sequel to Bioware’s KOTOR. KOTOR 2 got a patch in 2015 to make it run better, but for additional improvements, check out our guide here: If you want to see the cut and unfinished stuff, there’s also a restored content mod:
Star Wars: Battlefront 2 (that’s the classic one because it’s got a colon in it) is properly good, and a GOG Galaxy update brought multiplayer back with crossplay for Steam users too. The Force Unleashed is also just as entertaining a Sith power fantasy as it was before, even if that The Force Unleashed star destroyer bit is a tad controversial in the Star Wars fan community.
Star Wars Republic Commando is a tactical first-person shooter where you’re the leader of a squad of elite clone troopers called Delta Squad. The best bit about Republic Commando, however, is when you get blood on your visor, a little laser windscreen wiper cleans it off for you. Lego Star Wars Complete Saga doesn’t have any blood, but it does have a good sense of humour that lovingly pokes fun at the films.
Star Wars Empire At War isn’t the best RTS ever made, but it serves as a pretty good option for those aching for some real-time space opera strategy with AT-ATs, storm troopers, and rancors. If strategy isn’t your jam and you prefer a simplistic but fun arcade romp, Star Wars Rogue Squadron (with a 3D on the end of it for the PC release) is exactly that.
If you want to fly about but want it to be intricate and extensive, Star Wars TIE Fighter is the game for you. The TIE Fighter game is an in-depth space combat sim where you play an unnamed TIE pilot. If you want to play the hardware-accelerated special edition, you’ll have to perform a fix that’s explained in the video, but the original MS-DOS emulated version works as is.
Star Wars Dark Forces is basically a Star Wars Doom game. The old Doom, with the 3D environments and 2D character and item sprites. It’s really well-done though, with perfect sound effects, fully-voiced characters, and a cracking MIDI Star Wars soundtrack.
