Star Wars games are incredible, and, if you are over 30 years old, i would add nostalgic to that. I remember even this days, after 20 years, how i broke my first joystick playing Tie Fighter. It was fabulous! I will talk about the Star Wars game series and several PC configurations to play the games at max settings.
Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire – Here’s another N64 title that still thrills many of us who discovered Star Wars in the ‘90s, and I’m confident new fans will fall in love with it, too. Its Battle of Hoth levels alone are worth the price of admission. And if the tough boss battles against the likes of IG-88 and Boba Fett get to be too much for you, just open up a new save file and enter the cheat code “R Testers ROCK” as your name. You’ll then have access to all the game’s missions, and crouching for 15 seconds will grant you full health, max ammo, and a burst of invincibility long enough for you to gain the upper hand. Check out this retro gem on GOG.com or Steam.
Super Star Wars is a bit of an oddity compared to later Star Wars games. It tracks the plot of A New Hope pretty closely, but also takes some pretty big liberties, like adding levels where Luke fights giant scorpions and infiltrates a Jawa Sandcrawler. It’s a little odd, but keep in mind this is the era when even TV shows like Home Improvement had video game adaptations with out of place enemies. Super Star Wars and its two sequels at least hold up better than most other early ‘90s game adaptations. See more reviews of Star Wars video Games at YourMoneyGeek.
Hands up if you remember this one first time around? Arguably the most influential game on this list, Atari’s vector-based take on the Star Wars universe was revolutionary in its day. Though it seems quaint now, the super-fast line art and digitised voice over work of Star Wars Arcade seemed out of this world in 1983. Even know, the Death Star trench run as depicted here has its charm, a precursor to the on-rails shooters that would dominate arcades in the decades to come, as well as setting the standard for X-Wing flight sims of the future. Definitely worth popping a coin in if you manage to track down the machine still working in a dusty corner of an arcade somewhere.
While multiple-video-card gaming is still a path to great gaming, know that a game must be written to leverage multiple cards properly, and game developers in recent years have been de-emphasizing timely support for CrossFireX and SLI in games. Sometimes this support only emerges well after a game’s debut; sometimes it never comes at all. Also, Nvidia has been putting a damper on SLI in the last couple of years; it has kiboshed support for installing more than two of its late-model cards at the same time, and only a subset of its higher-end cards can be installed in SLI. Our general advice for mainstream buyers is to concentrate on the best single card you can afford.
PC prebuilt recommended to play Star Wars intensive GPU games : If you prefer a gaming PC with a more unassuming design, the Dell XPS Tower Special Edition puts powerful gaming hardware into a sleek-but-plain chassis, so no one will know you’re not using it for work. The base model comes with a six-core Intel i5-8400 CPU and Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti. That’ll handle basic gaming just fine, but Dell also lets you customize your rig to include up to an i7-9900K and GTX 1080. That version will run you around $3,000 but there’s a lot of options in between, including 4K and VR-ready configurations. The case is surprisingly compact, but it still boasts four USB 3.1 ports on the front and seven USB ports around the back. What’s more, you get the same tool-less design as the Alienware Aurora for super easy upgrades. If you want a gaming PC that doesn’t look like a typical gaming PC, the reserved Dell XPS Tower line is a great option. See more details on prebuilt gaming PC.
