First of all, let me explain I was totally surprised by the Renegade Squadron on PSP because of how well it looked on PSP but then Elite Squadron came around and I liked it for more then just great looks. But there were some stuff that LucasArts needs to attend to before they make another PSP battlefront game:
Needed to make battlefronts larger. I felt kind of annoyed by how small some of the battle areas were. Just a thought!
The task of capturing the Ion Cannon and destroying the Capital ship was very fun but after a while got old. Maybe you could select space battle or ground battle or mixed battle?
During games where you had to capture the ion cannon, it ws very annoying listening to a guy (clone, rebel, imperial, or droid) tell you that you have to capture the ion cannon or fight harder every 5 seconds. Yes, it got very annoying and I tried to find an off switch for them countless times.
Having to unlock your weaponry was yes, needed but can't tell what I have to do to unlock them! Imagine playing different modes millions of times different ways trying to unlock a chaingun for my clone trooper...
What was up with the Bespin mission in Campaign mode?? There was no way one jedi, a smuggler, and a mute robot could take on that many stormtroopers! Plus those overweight darktroopers!
But here are the goods:
Interesting new storyline! Glad to finally play as a heroic character not some rebel dude off the frying pan.
Awesome melee attack with gun! I have been waiting for something like that where I can finally just run and gun and then when I get to close, I can bash the enemie's head with my blaster rifle! Cool sprint move too!
Better graphics then Renegade Squadron. By a lot.
I was a big fan of Renegade Squadron's captain: Col Serra. It was awesome to see his face during countless battles in Campaign mode (Endor and few others...) !
Definitely rent first and then if you like it buy it. But through and through it's a great game!
