  • 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 RenegadeStar 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. Although not everything works perfectly in Renegade Squadron, the most important feature in the game--the online multiplayer--is great. If you’re interested in the single-player content, you will come away disappointed, even with all of the different gameplay modes.
  3. Even though it lacks a sweet presentation and plays the same as its predecessors, Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron is a must play for PSP owners everywhere.
  4. 75
    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. Great action and excellent multiplayer modes make Renegade Squadron an enjoyable experience, even if the short single-player mode and substandard visuals keep it from reaching its full potential.
  6. It's deeply frustrating. There are some great ideas in here, the presentation is top-notch and the options are plentiful, but none of these good intentions add up to a game of any real depth or longevity.
  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.

    This game has better controls than batllfront 2 on the psp you use look on insreading of aiming.At first i thought that the fact that it has This game has better controls than batllfront 2 on the psp you use look on insreading of aiming.At first i thought that the fact that it has lock on that it might take the skill out of it but it really doesnt. Although some time the lock on does have problems it works out fine. The new controls make the gameplay a little different. It runs pretty smoothly with the ocassional problem where there is no sound for like a second while you are playing but it doesnt stop your gameplay. The campaign was a short which is to be expected from a battlefront game. I did like the Galactic conquest though i like it better than the other battlefront games' galactic conquest. You can customize more things than in the other games. I love the fact that you can choose what kind of weapons you can have you can finally have like a rifle and a rocket luancher at the same time. This was a good game well needed for psp owners. Expand

    When I first got the game I thought it would suck. I was wrong.

    It is awesome! I probably have 100s of hours on it by now. I've played
    When I first got the game I thought it would suck. I was wrong.

    It is awesome! I probably have 100s of hours on it by now. I've played every map every way and am still finding places to hide! The only downside to it is-

    1. Not challenging enough AI

    2. No people on multiplayer

    3. No DLC or extra maps

    Other than that 8/10!!!

    If you're a Star Wars fan, this game is great. The sound fx and music give this title an epic feeling. The cut scenes are done If you're a Star Wars fan, this game is great. The sound fx and music give this title an epic feeling. The cut scenes are done innovatively well and provide a great background into the story of the game. There are so many options to choose from in customizing a soldier to your style of play. However, I feel that this game will fall very short for hardcore gamers. Although the multi-player mode extend the replayability of the title and can feel rewarding at times there's definitely something missing. Definitely hindered by control limitations, this is where this game suffers most. Rather than opting for a more precise control scheme that was untilized in SoCom and Syphon Filter, SWB:RS opts for a lock-on aiming control scheme that is not as rewarding. When all you have to do is lock-on your opponent, the amount of skill necessary to pull off a kill is diminished. It's not as rewarding as being to aim for a headshot yourself. 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
    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.
