I would buy one of the Sega/Genesis systems if they re-released that game, it was that good, IMO.

Just expanded the article greatly with considerable wikification and external links. I think this game is more historically important than Wikipedia has heretofore indicated (but maybe it's just that I liked it as a kid). Anyone have the resources to get a good screenshot we can use? --Matt McIrvin 13:08, 22 Apr 2005 (UTC)

"Surprisingly, Solaris on the Atari 2600 was more visually advanced than the original Atari 800 version of Star Raiders."

Is this an error? Why should it be surprising that a later game is more visually advanced than an earlier one? Trinite 21:08, 28 May 2006 (UTC)

It's surprising because the Atari 800 is a significantly more advanced system than the Atari 2600. Clayhalliwell 18:40, 3 July 2006 (UTC)

I'm surprised the page doesn't mention the Hip Hop song, circa 1985 I believe, about this game. The song is called Star Raid, by 19th Fleet. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:14, 20 October 2009 (UTC)


Currently, most of the game screenshots shown a green background with the shields enabled. This should be blue, not green. It would be nice to replace these with shots from a corrected palette. Clayhalliwell (talk) 19:52, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

Star Raiders II[edit]

I am currently working in collaboration with others to expand the stub for the 2011 Star Raiders sequel, Star Raiders II. We are currently working on a talk page, but hope to move content to the actual page soon. If anyone can provide missing information or suggestions, the help would be greatly appreciated.

The link to the talk page is here:

The 2011 game is a re-imagining of the original 1979 game, not a sequel. Likewise it was never called Star Raiders II. That's the name of the actual 1986 sequel to Star Raiders. --Marty Goldberg (talk) 23:01, 3 October 2012 (UTC)
