    We expected more from a Star Wars game by Ngmoco, but it's a totally decent game and it's free, so it's worth a look.

    Imperial Academy is a good online First Person Shooter, with just one big problem: the controls. Movements are very difficult, and there isn't a dedicated fire button; however, it's free (but full of ads), with no lag also in 3G, so for FPS lovers download is recommended.

    At its best, Star Wars: Imperial Academy feels dated. At its worst, it's a sorta-sloppy shooter held back by technical issues such as iffy controls and lag.

    With so many other online shooters vying for the attention of gamers it's unacceptable that Star Wars: Imperial Academy can't even get the basics right, especially considering how big this license is.

    More flawed than fun, Star Wars: Imperial Academy is a mess of a shooter that fails to do justice to ngmoco's FPS track record or the Star Wars universe.
