Don't let Lawlcakes' review put you off because this is a fantastic game. If you've played the previous Battlefront games than you'll find this immediately familiar. It is more of the same but the additions to the gameplay make this the best out of the three.
The campaign mode is def the best out of all 3 games. The story is great and the cutscenes are surprisingly well done. I loved the animated graphic novel looks. There are few famous faces like Han Solo, Boba Fett and IG 88.
The story is set between episodes 4 and 6. Your squadron is responsible for all the rebel black ops that went on in the background of the films.
The gameplay is very good. One of the new additions is the customisation of your character. You can change completely how your character looks in each of the factions. You can change the colour scheme, species and armour. Unfortunately you cant have a human head on a wookie body lol. There is no pre set troop types in this game. All of the weapons and equipment are sorted in a store and credit system. Each item has a credit value. This makes it fair so if you decide to have a jet pack and a rocket launcher you will have to make sacrifices in other areas. You can change your equipment at any of your bases. So if you start a stage with a rifle but need a rocket to take down an AT-ST just pop over to one of your bases and switch it.
The controls are pretty good but need getting used to. I had to use the alternate control scheme as its closer to games like Warhawk. When targetting enemies you dont have to aim too acurately, just in the general area as the auto aim will do the rest.
The in flight controls work well and the lock on feature is great for keeping track of fighters. Remember to disengage the lock if it loks like you are going to crash.
The online side is great and is what this game is made for. You need to open a Gamespyid.com before playing it tho.
All in all its a great Star Wars game. There is still lots I havent talked about like Galactic Conquest and Heros. I would def recommend it to any Star Wars fan and gamer.
