Battlefront 2.5, now with more Han Solo Oct. 14 2007
By Jon Folkers - Published on Amazon.com
Fun:   
As this game's lengthy title suggests, Renegade Squadron is just the latest in a long-running line of Battlefront games, which in turn owe a lot to the Battlefield WWII games. It's all about running around a virtual battlefield with different soldiers and their vehicles -- and is about as close to playing with Star Wars toys as you'll get in a video game, even more so than the Lego games. Claims that this is exclusive to the PSP are technically true, but remember that the same kind of game is available elsewhere on the PS2, XBOX, Windows, and Macintosh, in arguably better form (Star Wars Battlefront II).

The PSP already has a similar game to this, in the form of Star Wars Battlefront II (2005). That well-intentioned port pushed the PSP farther than it could go, with clunky controls, slow framerates, and local-only multiplayer, which was the kiss of death for a game primarily designed for online play. It still sold well and can be found cheaply, but Renegade renders it irrelevant. In single-player mode, Renegade Squadron is one of the first game to use the full 333 MHz of the PSP's clockspeed. In multiplayer mode, it drops to the usual 222 MHz to conserve power, but because of a few smart design choices, raw power isn't absolutely needed for a great experience.

What's new here? The biggest change is in the controls, which are greatly improved over the PSP version of Star Wars Battlefront II. When you're on the ground, you can holding down the R button to lock your sights on an enemy, letting you circle around him without losing your aim. While you're flying around in space (in X-Wing and TIE Fighters, as well as the Millenium Falcon), you can autoselect a target with one button, and pressing another will enable an autopilot to point you in the right direction. Since the autopilot follows lines of sight only, you'll still need to use your brain to maneuver the 3D objects in the space scenes. These changes are well-suited to the handheld, and while they make things easier, the tactical challenges are still present. I'd rather fight against my onscreen enemies than the controls of a game!

The other main difference between Renegade Squadron and the previous iteration on PSP is the inclusion of Infrastructure multiplayer. In other words, you can play on the internet with strangers, using a Gamespy-powered server explorer, much like the console and computer versions of the game. I didn't notice any significant lag when playing online, and there were plenty of opponents.

Other nice touches: the short (took me about 3 hours) campaign story is typical Star Wars, interwoven with events and characters from the films. You rescue Ackbar, you fake out the Emperor, and there's a lot of Han Solo fan service such as "Greedo shot first" in-jokes. Like most SW stories, it doesn't take many risks, except for the scene where you infiltrate the Emperor's home and smash up his holy relics, Taliban style. It's told with beautifully painted panels, which are partially animated (more than a pop-up book, less than a cartoon). Voiceovers and sound effects are of typically high LucasArts quality. Character customization is simple yet richly integrated into gameplay, forcing you to to choose the balance of health, firepower, speed, and other attributes based upon the needs of each mission.

If you've enjoyed other versions of Star Wars Battlefront, is this worth getting? In my opinion, the fixed controls and fully developed multiplayer makes this the best portable version of this kind of game yet. It can't compete with PC and console versions (with higher resolutions, better controls, and more robust online play with voice and keyboard support), but it's easily the best Star Wars game to come along since SWBF2. It's a great little game and if you're a Star Wars fan with a PSP, you should have it already. If you don't yet have a PSP, there's a white, slim PSP with a Darth Vader silkscreen packed in with this game, too!

An Amazing Game May 1 2008
By J. D. Auxier - Published on Amazon.com
Fun:   
A solid game, no doubt. Even if you're not a star wars fan (but even better if you are) it's a spectacular game. The story mode may be rather easy, but the online play is amazing. It gets up to 16 player shoot em up action. The customiztion of your soldier and weapons is a nice touch. There are dozens and dozens of combinations. Once again, a true star wars game that offers hours of entertainment. BUY this for the online play.

One of BattleFront's Best Game June 25 2010
By Cousin Vinny - Published on Amazon.com
Fun:   
I love this game. It's basically the 3rd Battlefront in the series, but its a knock out hit. You can play as the heroes from star wars and you go through a great story mode. Never gets old you can play online against friends or you can play a mini game called Conquest. Which allows you to play the game as a strategy game where you choose between the Jedi's or Sith's. I cannot stress enough this game never gets old plenty of things to unlock.

good gameplay, ok graphics Aug. 26 2009
By A. Rosedale - Published on Amazon.com
Fun:   
overall, great game. the alternate story depicted is interesting, and unlike any other star wars video game saga. however, being a psp game, there is no independent camera movement, so where you run is where you look, unless you lock the camera. the target lock is nice, but frustrating to have to use if you are a headshot kind of player. graphics are good, but i have seen better. overall, i would recommend this game for any level of gamer.
Small scale battles are really easy here March 29 2012
By Richard Baker - Published on Amazon.com
Fun:   
The Good: Delivers the Battlefront goods well, infrastructure, customizable troops, you can now change equipment during play, nice control setup...

The Bad: ...That makes things too easy, small-scale battles, bare bones customization, short story, not much replay value, uninspired graphics and audio

I had high expectations for this game and I have to say it didn't meet them. I wanted huge battlefields with 300-400 people fighting it out at a time like on the consoles but all I got was a watered down version with not even 100. Most maps feel empty and are just fetch quests. The game isn't to challenging to begin with and the story mode can be beaten in less than 4 hours! The Galactic Conquest is what will keep you coming back for more but not for very long. The online multiplayer is fun but with the, too easy, control scheme there's not much of a challenge.

The controls are really nice where you don't even move your reticle and it's controlled by a lock on system (which makes things too easy). The air fights are probably the best and there's even an auto pilot button for people who can't find their enemies. The graphics are some what uninspired and so is audio with frequent cut outs. While you can now change your equipment on the battlefield from a command post and you can change your characters uniform it's as bare bones as you can get. Renegade Squadron is basically just a bare bones Battlefront game. This game is definitely worth a rental but I don't recommend buying it.
