  1. Star Wars: Elite Squadron refines its formula with a new campaign story and other modes, especially multiplayer online.

    Impressively ambitious but hampered by woolly controls and camera. [Winter 2009, p.74]
  3. Star Wars: Elite Squadron is George Lucas' franchise as its best, or at least at the multiplayer features of the game. We've very much the same game that we saw a year ago on Renegade Squadron, with a new Campaign story mode that's set to discover every epic battle that we've saw on the original movies. And that's alright, but we were expecting something else of this adventure, mainly focused on the online.
  4. Although Star Wars Battlefront: Elite Squadron takes more than a simple hint from its predecessor, it introduces a new and much more varied mission structure, making the game much more fun.

    I could blabber mouth on about how it brings whole worlds in the star wars universe to life allowing you to use loads of customisation to makeI could blabber mouth on about how it brings whole worlds in the star wars universe to life allowing you to use loads of customisation to make a super fun time soldier. That wouldn't be a lie. But we have seen huge worlds before in video games, we also have seen customisation in video games. Both of these have been seen in star wars games before. This just strings them together which should, on paper, make one of the best games on the PSP. I mean, renegade squadron had a great story, great galactic conquest, fore-filling customisation and of course the instant action. Which is great, and being this is the sequel you'd think it would do the same and more. But, the customisation is now limited alot more, the story is a pile of **** but it still is fairly good. I cant give it more than a six though because it wasn't exactly as good as I wanted. Full Review »
