    In essence, this is a standalone experience for Star Wars fans looking for a raucous thrill ride without all the massively multiplayer thrills. The Old Republic has needed this missing piece for some time now, and now that it has arrived, it's time to be the Jedi or Sith you've always wanted to be.

    Galactic Starfighter shows a lot of promise and there’s a great deal of potentially awesome additions outside of new maps and game mods (like dogfighting!).

    The expansion introducing 12-a-side PvP battles in space lets you modify your starfighter heavily and offers a solid arcade gameplay that works great as a part of a bigger game. [02/2014, p.65]

    Had "Jump to Lightspeed" (The add-on to SW Galaxies) never existed I might have been more generous. It set the bar for what a space add-on for a SW MMO should be. Galactic Starfighter comes no where close to that. Not even the same galaxy. If you are looking for even the slightest reminder of JTL, move right along, GSF is not what you want. In fact you will probably hate it more just knowing what was possible several years ago.

    Simply put as it is right now, in its current state, GSF is boring. Like everything else with SWTOR, the gameplay is very basic. Its PVP that, unless you are really good, you will get stomped right out of the gate since you are matched with player with superior equipment. Never mind the fact that the controls are such that scoring hits is pretty difficult to master even if you weren't matched with higher tier players.

    GSF is for hardcore PVPers that want a challenge. In that respect its okay, though no where near as good as JTL. For everyone else, you will play a few rounds and get bored. If you are like me you will think back to JTL and instantly resent this pathetic excuse for a space add-on.

    There is likely more to come for GSF but its foundation is extremely lacking. If you are wondering whether its worth subscribing for, its not, plain and simple. I gave this a 4/10 for the effort, but that's pretty generous.
