    The greatest problem with Elite Squadron is that it feels like a step back from its predecessor, Renegade Squadron.
  2. As it stands, you’re left instead with something that is more difficult to control than an angry rancor.

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 »

    General:
    When I picked up this game, I was excited about the promise of an expanded Battlefield. I have played every Battlefront Game put out and generally enjoy the series. In this case, I find some flaws with the new system. Much of the same old things were in this game; Conquest of spawn points, space battles, multiplayer mode and a campain. I was pleasantly suprised by the campaign. Its not well put together, with the story jumping around, and some of the levels are a simple repeat of the last mission, but it was more enjoyable in general then past campaigns. The class system is also been replaced by a general layout design. This works very well. On the downside, Galactic conquest is no longer the same sort of "build your fleet and go engage the enemy". It was replaced by a "move troops" function. There is also not a "default" galactic conquest mode. They are all "story based" with a small set of planets and sectors that you just move your troops around. I found this system not nearly as fun as previous installments.

    Graphics: 7
    For the PSP, it was better then on other versions and pretty good. Compaired to Battlefront 2, its very similiar. Compaired to "modern" games, meh.

    Controls: 9
    The Controls were much improved over the last game. I felt (especially with settings on Vita to allow for 2 joystick use) that I was in total control of my character and it made flying much easier. The auto aim, and sticky recepticle was helpful. I felt it on par with playing on a Playstation 2/3 controller.

    Sound: 9
    Good sound effect and background musice. Voice acting leaves alittle to wish for, but not too bad.

    Story: 7
    The last "act" has some fun in it, the rest of the story seems plausable in the Star Wars Universe. Some of the main story is alot of retracking, as well as a "Why do I have to do this" feeling, but the overall campaign was a generally pleasant experience for me.

    Value: 8 For the PSP (I actually played this on my Vita), this game is better graphically and technically then the last PSP Battlefront game. There is little restriction compaired with the council installments and this game doesnt feel "cut down" to play on the Vita. Its enjoyable and a good way to waste time, and you can download it for $20 on the market. Considering that, it has a pretty good "value"

Later I realized that there was better star wars games out there, but that game stands out. The story was fun and its never a bad time to start a battle.
    It has a few issues but they are acceptable.
