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 The class system is also been replaced by a general layout design.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.
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.
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.
Good sound effect and background musice. Voice acting leaves alittle to wish for, but not too bad.
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"… Expand

This game excels exactly where it needed to and improved the Zelda series imensly. Anyone who puts an older Zelda game over this one is either insane, or living in the past.
Gameplay: 10. The way this game uses the Wii Remote system is great. I will say the little fairy that shows up on screen can get annoying, but it helps show you were you are aiming your weapon (that and you can turn it off). I loved how the weapon system works, esp. how the B button is used for easy access to weapon use (compared to the old C buttons). The Story line is very developed and interesting. The weapons are well developed and the new weapons to the series are fun. Overall, the only issue may be the difficulty in bosses once you figure out how to beat them, but, personally, its an improvement over some of the past games that frustrate the heck out of you, even if you know how to beat them. Besides the bosses, the AI is pretty good for the other enemies. Graphics: 10. The graphic and attention to detail in this game is great. Look at any of the temple bosses and it makes my point. They may be easy, but when you first see them, you have to take a second to really appreciate they greatness. The people look good, so do the Enemies.
Sound: 10. Now some complain about the music because of its "dated" sound. I love it. I like the remake of all of the old songs and the additions to the old tracks with new ones (esp. the song played at night in Hyrule Field). The sounds out of the Wii Remote sound alittle funny, but overall add to the game.
Value: 10. This is a game that you will spend some time on. The Puzzles are very well done and you will have to wander around and think about many of them. Tilt: 10. I love Zelda games. Alway have, Always will. This game is no exception. When I am at work huming the theme songs, and my little brother is having dreams of defeating Gannon weeks before we got the game, you know we are excited. This game lives up to the expectiations. Period, and is definatly the best game out right now, esp. for Wii. This game might be the best one I have ever played.… Expand

I enjoy the presentation of the games, presenting a story Puzzles and wonderful creative writing. Unwound future has the most puzzles, and can overwhelm you with them at times, but the ending is the best in the series, especially if you have played the other games and enjoyed them. I would recommend this game to anyone who enjoys puzzles, as this game presents many of them with alot of variety… Expand

The New additions to the game, including better controls for firearms and driving, make it a major improvement over the original. Combo weapons are a fun addition as well. If you did not play Dead Rising 2, and you choose this as your first encounter with the 2nd installment of the series, it is very much worth your time.… Expand
