Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron review

  • Fantastic single- and multiplayer
  • Issues addressed, great new modes
  • Great use of Star Wars license
  • Fighting in closed quarters
  • Not playing living opponents
  • Using a GameSpy account?

You lucky so-and-sos who've held out on getting a PSP until this week can not only get the system at a reduced cost, but they're throwing in a copy of Renegade Squadron, too. As tempting as the Daxter pack and a handful of old Family Guy episodes may appear, you can pick up either at any time for less than $20. Most will get far more mileage out of Renegade Squadrion's multiplayer free-for-all, and that's not to mention the uber-slick white PSP that no iPod enthusiast will ever want to be without. Need we add that Vader's face is branded onto the back?

Renegade Squadron scores for being a great game that offers hours of satisfying multiplayer, while simultaneously using its license to its fullest potential and improving over its predecessor. If you're willing to overlook the minor control issues and last-gen graphics (and most will), you'll see that the PSP is still capable of performing a little magic of its own. The Emperor will be most pleased.

    The game is great and I do absolutely love it and how true it is to the genre, but the story mode is extremely short! I beat it in only 6 hours, I mean come on? SWBF2 was atleast twice as long! But don't get me wrong, the customization is awesome! But I was kinda hoping for a few more faces and body types to choose from! All in all I give the game a super thumbs up! I just wish it wasn't so short! There is the galactic conquest, but then I beat one of those in like 4 hours lol! But I will make a bet that the multi player is more than amazing!
