Great game, but a lot missing,
This review is from: Star Wars Battlefront II (PSP) (Video Game)
First of all I'd like to say that when I first got this game, I was totally enthralled in the fun of it all. Shooting down enemy TIE fighters, bombing hardpoints on Star Destroyers, rolling around the battlefield as a droideka, then deploying a shield and blowing away the clone troops. It has many game modes, and many maps, including the AT-AT attack on Hoth, with snowspeeders included, and the interior of the Tantive IV, Leias ship from Epsiode VI.
Unfortunately, they decided to cut a lot out of this game. Many maps are missing, and the main story-driven campaign is gone altogether, so no 501st legion attacking the Jedi Temple on Coruscant or Death Star maps. They also removed the ability to destroy interior hardpoints on the capital ships. The Space Marines and Boarding craft are still present, but now you can only land in the enemy hangar, and there is not much more to do than to prevent the enemy reaching their fighters. Not to mention that the "Galactic Conquest" campaigns are highly repetitive, and get boring as missions become the same thing over and over. The AT-TE command vehicle is missing from the game too.
Do not think this removes replay action from the game though, it is a brilliant PSP game, and I play it again and again. The novel features of flying around as Boba Fett, or slicing through Rebel scum as Darth Vader is just too fun to ignore.
