2.0 out of 5 stars Star Wars Elite Squadron- that's what it should have been!, 11 Dec. 2009
This review is from: Star Wars Battlefront: Elite Squadron (Nintendo DS) (Video Game)
The main problem of the game is its title- 'Star Wars BATTLEFRONT Elite Squadron'. We as customers expect fast-paced battles in the Star War universe where the player captures command points and bleeds the other side (usually the Rebels as we all love the Empire =P) to the death. The issue here is that the game is not actually that but rather a third-person adventure game where you complete objectives in order to achieve certain goal. Battlefront has always been known for fantastic multilayer where an active community was recreating famous battles from the Star Wars universe. On the DS version this is limited to 4 players and very short, unsatisfying battles that are fought [as far as I know] without any vehicles. This must be seen as one of the major faults of the game because it separates it from the rest of the Battlefront family. The focus of the game is therefore the single player campaign where we fight as X2- one of two special troopers who were cloned from DNA of a Jedi. The Storyline is engaging and successfully portrays the events from the Clone Wars to the struggle between the Rebellion and the Empire [yay!] and beyond. The gameplay is usually fun and manages to keep the player occupied however it can be frustrating at times. The controls work fine but auto-locking might be a problem- this tends to happen especially when the player tries to run backwards and fire at the enemy at the same time [I guess they don't like cowards in the SW universe ;p]
Graphics are outstanding and the music is top notch- this can be seen especially well during the space battles.
The problem I encountered was the lack of ability to replay a mission in the campaign. I wish I had a second chance to blow that massive Star Destroyer with my little X-wing! The overall length of the campaign is also an issue as I managed to finish it in 4.5 hours.
The last Boss is a joke with ridiculous amount of health and cheap tricks. Beware- the game is really easy up to this point.
I also feel that the AI could be improved a little bit. Sometimes the stormtroopers just... stand there!

Overall This game is very mediocre- Star Wars fans will be entertained with the story and kept happy with the awesome space battles but casual players will probably hate it. Give it a try if you want.

2,5/5
