The Best Star Wars Games You Can Play Today

The Best Star Wars Games You Can Play Today

Today is the day of the Star Wars franchise, and the Force has inspired us to make a list of the best Star Wars games you can currently play. We are aware that Star Wars fans already know which games are of good quality, but the situation is such that certain game genres have not seen quality SW games for a long time. As Luca's (now Disney) universe is constantly attracting new generations of fans, it's not bad to introduce these new generations to some old hits that can offer a more fun Star Wars experience than newer movies.

We will update and expand this article over time. After one dry period, several Star Wars titles are currently being made, and one day it will be interesting to see which of them will deserve a place on the list of the best. We have divided the list by game genres, and we have two recommendations for each: one main and one alternative, in case you already know the main one. Let's go in order:

The Best Action Adventures Star Wars Games

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

This is the best modern game that conveys the feeling of handling a lightsaber and controlling the Force. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order has a small level of free exploration of various planets, but it is strongest in directed segments, some of which will pump up your adrenaline and stay in your memory forever. Here we primarily mean the epic finale that every Star Wars fan should experience. And the good thing is that it still looks great today and is specially tailored for current consoles.

Star Wars: Jedi Knight - Jedi Academy

We weighed a lot about whether the alternative title should be Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, but the older Jedi Knight still prefers the game. The specificity of this series is that it allows the player to choose the side of light or darkness. Jedi Academy may not be the most famous game in the Jedi Knight series, but we think it is the most accessible in today's terms and fits well with the motif of duality between Jedi and Sith, and bases his whole story on it.

The Best Role-Playing Star Wars Games 

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (1 & 2)

Speaking of which hardly anything can surpass the Knights of the Old Republic games. Their specialty is that their original plot takes place even earlier than "A long time ago". They are an ideal read for absorbing and expanding knowledge about the Star Wars universe, and the second part has one of the better Star Wars villains. The gameplay is a bit outdated though, but it can be modified if you play the PC version. Otherwise - wait for the reworking of the first part, which is currently under development.

Star Wars: The Old Republic

Once the most expensive game was made, it is a completely solid MMORPG that is still alive today. Although The Old Republic was not a "WoW killer" after its launch, over time it has become quite a substantial title that you can enjoy without the company of other players. It costs you nothing to try this - the game is free to play, you just have to play it on the PC platform because it is not available elsewhere.

Star Wars First or Third-Person Shooters Games

Star Wars: Battlefront II

Around this game, spears were broken when she came out. Forcing loot boxes and microtransactions did not like SW fans the reaction was stormy, so the developer/publisher gave in after a while and eventually made Battlefront II a completely decent shooter. Subsequent content made her even better, and it is definitely worth giving her a chance. It is focused primarily on multiplayer modes, but it also has a shorter campaign if you are interested. She also benefits from looking great and performing even better.

Star Wars: Republic Commando

One of the unique Star Wars games. As the name suggests, Republic Commando plays the role of leader of the elite Stormtrooper unit. There is as much issuing orders to your team as there is shooting, and the feeling of presence in the action is helped by the interface, which is presented as if you are watching everything from the helmet of the raider.

The Best Platformer Star Wars Games

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga

Currently, the latest game is on offer. LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is a great choice for cooperative enjoyment of Star Wars. He retells all nine films in his simple and humorous way, but beyond that, he provides an exploration of a large number of planets, various mini-games, and a bunch of easter egos that Star Wars fans will appreciate. If you don't mind LEGO in this combination and don't ask the games to be particularly challenging with Skywalker Saga, you just can't miss it.

LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars

An alternative to LEGO Star Wars is… another LEGO Star Wars! As the above games are told in nine films, it is not worth going back to older versions. That’s why there’s a game that handles the animated series The Clone Wars. It has 20 missions and 40 optional bonus levels, distinctive humor, and split-screen multiplayer. If you’re not tired of Skywalker Sage, this is a game you should check out.

The Best Strategy Star Wars Games

Star Wars: Empire at War

By far the best strategy game in the world of Star Wars. Although she is 16 years old, she is still interesting to play with her classic loop of gathering resources, building bases and armies, and warfare. You can choose the side of the rebels or the Empire, and occasionally you get to know famous characters like Obi-Wan Kenobi and Palpatine. Be sure to check out the Steam version, which has built-in support for modifications.

Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds Saga

This is a strategy for fans of classic 2D titles in the style of Age of Empires or Stronghold. The Galactic Battlegrounds Saga takes place during the second episode, primarily on land. She has charm in her retro show, and we always give her an advantage over mobile SW games that are also of the strategic genre. At least you don’t have to worry about microtransactions here.

The Best Flying or Racing Star Wars Games

Star Wars Squadrons

The best modern Star Wars game focused on flying. It is graphically beautiful and true to the atmosphere of Star Wars, and everything goes to a higher level if you can experience it in virtual reality on PC or PlayStation VR.

Star Wars Episode I Racer

A game based on a single sub-racing sequence from Phantom Menace. Her visuals are outdated for today’s terms, but the gameplay itself is still relatively entertaining. You can get additional fun in the version for Nintendo Switch, which has control by tilting the controller.

On the occasion of May the 4th, all the listed games are at a big discount. You can find the older ones for real change, so be sure to take this opportunity if you are missing a game in the collection. Also, write us in the comments which are your favorite Star Wars games and what you would like to see from the games from that franchise in the future.
