Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron
Okay let me start this off by saying that I am a HUGE Star Wars fanboy. I had such high expectation and hype for this game when it was first announced with it's custom Darth Vader PSP bundle, couldn't wait to get my hands on this game. I loved the first two Battlefront games, they carried me through my teenage years and into college. Being a huge Star Wars fan meant that I had huge expectations to be filled. When played the game for the first time I was amazed and let down at the same time. Don't get me wrong, this game is amazing, but it does have it's flaws. For the most part my Star Wars dreams were met. The game allows you for the first time to customize your own soldier/mercenary. This is a cool feature, but in some ways a let down due to the limitations it has. There are four factions, each one requires you to make a soldier for that faction. The body parts, armor and helmets are very limited per faction. Each factions offers three classes, with three heads and torsos. The heads for the most part are the same, they offer only two sometimes one head per class that is NOT the same. The weapons are cool but toned down from the console version. You have a rank like you would in most first person/action games today, and you unlock different colors, weapons, and equipment with each rank. These upgrades require galactic credits, as do the weapons and symbol you pick for your army. Once you hit the maximum money cap you cannot further expand your army or your character. It's really a downer simply because you could do so much with the customization options if they let you have a little from working space. The planets/levels are wonderful, they truly give you a new take on the star wars universe. You get to see each planet from a new spectrum and point of view. You even get to make a trip over to the dark Sith home world of KORRIBAN. The music is the same as in all Star Wars games, the magical John Williams score blaring makes any battle better. The controls are the only other small let down this game has lingering behind it. You hold the L shoulder to lock on to a target and the R shoulder to fire. They have an alternate aiming scheme witch is having you use the triangle, square, X, and circle buttons to aim and the R shoulder button to shoot. The second control scheme is nice, but kind of slow and laggy which leaves us stuck with the auto aim selection. It makes the game easier and harder. Easier because it takes the skill of aim away, and harder because it locks onto the closest target to you and you cannot de-select the enemy until you have killed it which can be frustrating. Then online portion of the game was great back in the day, now it's invaded by hackers who spawn kill you. Most of these servers are hosted by hackers, but there are a few rare ones that are hacker free. The story in the game is okay, it gives you something to do that is incredibly enjoying though rather short. Don't let the cons hold you back from buying this game though, it's by all means an incredible game! It stays true to the Star Wars universe and brings something new to the table. If you enjoy fun shooters or if you're a fan of Star Wars I highly recommend you pick this game up for the $5 it costs. After you beat this game I highly suggest you pick up the sequel STAR WARS ELITE SQUADRON.
This game is legen....wait for it.....DARY!
I LOVE THIS GAME IT IS SO AMAZING!!!! best battlefront so far, the graphics arnt the best but everything else is amazing, online, instant action, campaign, buy this game, 3 bucks?? amazing!!!
Not what i expected
I bought this game for $2.99 and that was good price for it, but i couldnt see paying more than about $7 for it. I love battlefront games, but this one is not that great... The controls are ok, and the gameplay is good. However, the graphics are not the best-even for psp. I do like the customization of the characters. All together though, this doesn't really feel like a classic Battlefront game... But that's just my opinion :)
best game ever!!!!!!!
this is the best game ever star wars rocks!!!!! i love this game because the gameplay is probably the best you will ever play and being jedi and sith is so cool best game ever would recommend it to anyone!!
fun game to play when nothing to do.
It is a cool game, but i would like there to be a longer story. The customization is cool and easy to use. I would recommend this to semi-starwars fans.

Super Awesome Cool Game!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This game rocks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Even though it's on the PSP the game is still cool. It's worth getting for the PSP. The games cool. Star wars battlefront!
not worth the Star Wars: Battlefront name
I am a big Star Was fan boy and I loved Battlefront 1 and 2. When this game came out I picked up the Darth Vader PSP combo with this game I had meany high hopes for this game but unfortunately they where shattered when I found out about the game play locking onto people instead of aiming? and no real control over who you lock onto where enough for me to put down the game and never pick it up again but i played it for a few hours going though disappointment after disappointment, if you want a real Star Was TPS experience pick up Battlefront 2 for the PS2 or Xbox if you can find it (the game play and graphics are slightly better on the Xbox)
Simple and great !!!
this game is really fun and easy to play. its a must have for Online psp gamers!! overall the game is sweet like pie :) the only downside is the story and graphics but dont get me wrong this game is still lots of fun
Amazing PSP Game...
It is a really good game. It has amazing graphics for a PSP game. The campaign consists of about 12 medium length missions (pretty short), but instant action is really good. I haven't tried multiplayer or anything else so I can't say anything about them. Galactic Conquest mode wasn't very good. Overall, it is a pretty good PSP game.
