Star Wars Battlefront: Is The Force Strong With This One?
9:33 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Mac Gamer has posted a review of the first person shooter with a Star Wars twist, Star Wars Battlefront. The game allows players to take part in the massive battles made famous in the movies, participating from the perspective of an individual soldier. Star Wars Battlefront made the grade with a score of 85%.

From the review:

Ground vehicles are literally a blast to operate. A.I. vehicle drivers can always be booted out of the drivers seat by real players. I experienced a thrilling sense of power taking control of an AT-AT and raining destruction on the puny Rebel defenses. I don't have a lot of experience with flying vehicles, but I would describe their flight characteristics as "arcade". Flying vehicles like the X-Wing provide variety to game-play and are controllable with keyboard and mouse. Gunships can hold up to five players.
Star Wars Battlefront was brought to the Mac by Aspyr Media. For the entire review and more information about the game check out the links below.
