    Once again Gameloft have set a standard for future games to aspire to with Star Battalion's excellent space fighter combat and co-op multiplayer modes.

    Star Battalion is a superior space shooter, with great gameplay mechanics but no online deathmatch mode.

    If you're a fan of big Space Operas and fancy blowing a fleet of enemies out of the sky in a dogfight then Star Battalion should be right up your street. It may not be the longest game in the world but it's certainly one of the most action packed and explosive games I've played in recent months and kept me entertained throughout.

    At the end of the day, most fans of space combat games won't find too much wrong with Star Battalion. In typical Gameloft fashion, the game is smooth, looks nice, and has a half descent story (even though it is a total knock off). The controls will drive you nuts at times, but for most, the good will outweigh the bad.

    Overall, despite some minor gripes that can be fixed with updates such as deathmatch multiplayer, or lock-on controls, Star Batallion is a great flight-sim package that is very arcade-like in execution at times, but offers solid twitch-gameplay and challenge, with great presentation and graphics.

    Unfortunately, the game's tilt control scheme never felt quite right, so take that into consideration before jumping in expecting pure Star Fox-esque bliss.

    Despite its great graphics and sounds, Star Battalion suffers from some annoying problems: the game is heavily scripted, the fights are a bit repetitive and there's a general lack of attention to detail.

    I can only offer a very mild recommendation to fans of space shooters like Star Fox willing to overlook these things, but in the end, my frustration overtook my enthusiasm.

    Star Battalion unsuccessfully tries to make up for mediocre gameplay with online co-operative multiplayer and high-definition graphics.

    It borrows too heavily from films and similar games of the genre resulting in a hodgepodge of a storyline. Another 'attack of the clones' if you will!
