Star Wars: Battlefront: Elite Squadron Review

The Battlefront sequel that flew under the radar, despite sky high ambitions.

If EA's take on Star Wars: Battlefront left you out in the cold, then believe it or not, there's another option out there for a modern Battlefront experience. It's been long forgotten, and due to platform exclusivity, most people never got the chance to try it. What game is this? None other than Star Wars: Battlefront: Elite Squadron.

Elite Squadron is not only a Battlefront game from the PSP's twilight years, but an attempt to recoup from the loss of Free Radical's cancelled Battlefront III. Hurriedly put together by Rebellion (Aliens: Versus Predator, Sniper Elite), it salvages what bits and pieces were leftover -- including the ability to fly from ground to space! That's a lot of potential to put on the shoulders of a spin-off title for a handheld slightly weaker than the PlayStation 2. Does Rebellion's effort pay off? Well... it's complicated.
