Star Wars Battlefront Reviewed
7:58 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Macworld's Peter Cohen recently reviewed LucasArts' Star Wars Battlefront. Brought to the platform by Aspyr, Battlefront drops players in the middle of epic Star Wars battles. Action can take place in any one of a number of familiar locales from the movies and players can choose their alliance from Imperial, Rebel, Clone Army, or Separatist Droid Army. SWB allows players to engage in fierce ground combat as well as hop aboard a variety of Star Wars vehicles and blast away at everything in sight. Macworld gives Star Wars Battlefront four out of five mice.

From the review:

While some of the more wide-open maps lend themselves to joyrides in whatever vehicles have been put there, others clearly emphasize combat on foot the cityscapes especially are very claustrophobic. On those maps, hopping behind the controls of a speeder or gunship may actually be more of a liability than a help. Be warned, though: Going up against other players operating vehicles as infantry can be a daunting task, depending on the size your weapons will have a negligible effect on some of the more massive vehicles in this game (like the elephantine AT-AT, for example).
