Top Five Worst Retro Star Wars Games

“Yaaa-hoo! You’re all clear, kid!”

Who doesn’t love the 1983 Atari classic “Star Wars” arcade Game. An X/Y control yoke with triggers, vector graphics, and digitized audio from the movie. This game was years ahead of its time, and if your arcade had the cockpit cabinet instead of the upright, you really felt like you were in the movie. Of course, when I look back at those days and compare that to today’s CGI masterpieces, there is no comparison, but only as far as graphics go. For pure game-play and fun, my money is still on Star Wars.

But that’s the last you’ll hear of good games. For every Star Wars success story in the video game industry, there were loads of garbage juice spinoffs flowing like wine – really really bad wine. Today, my friends we take a longing look back at the five most awful games of the 1980s and early 90s. (Atari, Culture, Lego Star Wars, LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy, LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga, Retro, Star Wars, Super Star Wars)
