  • Summary: Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron is the previously untold story of a ragtag ensemble of battle-hardened rogues and scoundrels assembled by Han Solo. Gathered to execute some of the most secretive operations in the Rebel Alliance's war against the Galactic Empire, the Renegade Squadron participates in battles spanning the galaxy. From the Valley of the Sith on Korriban to a dogfight in space through the remains of Alderaan, Solo directs the team on missions of sabotage, rescue and retrieval. In Renegade Squadron, robust customization options replace the class system seen in previous Star Wars Battlefront titles, allowing for millions of possible unique combatants. With weapons, equipment and abilities that players select themselves, no two allies will likely ever look or perform exactly the same. The game also boasts expanded multiplayer options for the PSP. Up to 16 players can compete against each other over the Internet and eight via the PSP system's ad-hoc wireless connection. [LucasArts] Expand

  1. The gameplay variety is second to none with a good cross referencing of gameplay genres. You can also expect some surprises, as some famous playable Star Wars characters make an appearance. May this game be with you.
  2. The poor AI and incredibly short campaign will make it boring quickly, but the online play gives a new meaning to portable gaming. Find a wireless connection and jump on.
  3. Overall, Star Wars Battlefront Renegade Squadron is a pretty solid title and it should not be overlooked by any gamer, from fans of the Star Wars saga to gamers who just happen to own a PSP.

    When the battle’s done with and the bodies are rotting where they fell, Star Wars Battlefront is still at heart ‘Battlefield for Star Wars fans’ - and that’s what makes it great.
  5. 70
    It's the foot-based missions that people play this game for. And to be more specific, it's the multiplayer foot-based missions that are enjoyable.
  6. For fans of the first two Battlefront games there is plenty here to enjoy. The single player is a limited experience which will disappoint most, but for those with access to the online features then Renegade Squadron is well worth the asking price.
  7. 50
    Despite fixing the major problem of its portable predecessor, Renegade Squadron feels like a cheap cash in with ugly visuals and simplistic gameplay.

    "Star Wars Battlefront:Renegade Squadron" for the Playstation Portible is not about graphics ,but much much more.In fact ,I give this game 5/5 stars given the fact that it provided me with fun missions.I found it odd that other gamers say that this game sucks.But to me,it doesn't.

    Great Job LucasArts!

    This game consumed hours of my time. It is so fun to go against enemies from star wars and simply shoot them. Better yet, being a jedi and slicing everybody with a lightsaber! Expand

    This is a very solid PSP game packed with tons of value. There is a single player campaign which can be bland at times but is still interesting, online multiplayer and galactic conquest. The single player missions involve fighting with an army against another army for control of capture points around a Star Wars map. The more you hold the faster your enemies reinforcement tickets count down, first team to run out of them loses. This is a great mix of action and strategy. You can customize the loadouts of your player depending on your mood and needs. want to be annoying? use a jetpack to flit around the map. Need to bring down a walker? make your primary weapon a rocket launcher. Or you can settle for a regular blaster rifle but instead gain more powerful shields or the ability to capture control points faster. This battlefront gives players the highest level of customization of any Star Wars Battlefront ever. The space battles also have their charms, you can bring down enemy ships by hitting thier many weak points with torpedoes or fly into thier hangar and bring them down from within. The online was fun and adds depth and replayability to the game. The conquest mode is like a game of space Risk where you have to actually play out a single player battle first in space then on the ground to capture an area.This game did have some drawbacks. The controls are not natural at first but you get used to them and the story is lame and does not add much to the Star Wars canon, This game is in my opinion one of the fullest packages ever crammed into a UMD and will provide hours of entertainment.

    The Star Wars Battlefront series dark horse as it clearly puts the core concept of battlefront onto the PSP with its own unique customisation load out options. A simple solid game. Fans of the series need to try it. Expand

    The game is an absolute mess, where to start?
    Well for one thing, the cut-scenes and graphics, normally graphics don't matter to me to much
    but they are just awful, not only that, but the cut scenes are hardly in full motion video,, it's some kind of lazy flashback style cut scene, isn't the point of the PSPs disc drive to be full motion?

    The campaign can be really frustrating and it is just underwhelming, sometimes when I am given a time limit to do something, or an objective to protect something, I can't do it without trial and error sometimes because i'm either to far away or the friendly unit dies too fast.

    Now maybe taking this all aside, it's considered a mediocre battlefront on the go, but the real rotten core of this game is the camera, it is atrocious, it always centers to the screen when your're not moving it, which makes it hard to aim because you always gotta jerk the camera around and there is no way to disable this feature.

    Rebellion studios deserves the golden turd award for this, did you know that the worst metacritic rating on Steam is a Rebellion game? Did you know that most of their games have negative reviews by both critics and regular gamers? This is a middle finger to the fans like my self who adored battlefront 1 and 2, Someone at Lucasarts needs to lose their job, clearly, they and Rebellion have no sense of what the fans want, I will not be buying a new game from either anytime soon.

    Oh and just for your information, i got this game on its release.
