In a recent review Applelinks analyzed Star Wars Battlefront, the Lucasarts first person shooter set in the Star Wars universe. Pleasing graphics and the ability to participate in nearly every famous battle from the films wasn't enough to elevate Battlefront beyond a three out of five rating.

From the review:

The single player version plays like the multiplayer, meaning that when you die, you simply re-spawn and hop back into the fray, either as the same soldier or a different type. This is fine for multiplayer gaming where you wouldn't want to sit out of a game waiting for a battle to finish before you could play again, but it makes your role in the single player version pretty pointless. No point in working hard to develop a great strategy when I can just correct after dying. This didn't bother me in Unreal Tournament or Quake III: Arena, but because it's Star Wars, I know there's a story going on around me, and it bugged me that I couldn't follow that. The Historical Campaigns do tie the battle scenes together with clips from the movies, but all they do is make you feel like you're watching a movie, not living it.
