Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron is the previously untold story of a ragtag ensemble of battle-hardened rogues and scoundrels assembled by Han Solo. Gathered to execute some of the most secretive operations in the Rebel Alliance's war against the Galactic Empire, the Renegade Squadron participates in battles spanning the galaxy. From the Valley of the Sith on Korriban to a dogfight in space through the remains of Alderaan, Solo directs the team on missions of sabotage, rescue and retrieval. Fly as heroes in space aboard the Millennium Falcon, Darth Vader's TIE Advanced, Jango and Boba Fett's Slave I, and Obi-Wan Kenobi's Jedi starfighter New land-based heroes include Admiral Ackbar, Ben Kenobi (Episode IV), IG-88, Asajj Ventress and Kit Fisto
Beginning with the evacuation of Yavin 4 (end of A New Hope) and ending with the Battle of Endor (Return of the Jedi), the original story features 11 battles as seen through the eyes of a clandestine Rebel team personally selected by Han Solo.
Millions of possible customizations directly affect gameplay to an even greater degree than the predetermined character classes of previous Star Wars Battlefront games.
Players can upgrade and customize soldiers' attributes (health, speed, agility), equipment (weapons, items) and appearance (species, body, insignia, uniform colors).
New maps include Ord Mantell, Boz Pity, Korriban, Sullust and Saleucami, plus new space battles at Kessel, Hoth, and the remnants of Alderaan.
Renegade Squadron also adds a second Hoth map, plus a new interpretation of Endor.
good game but short story line This game is very good. I loved the first one and I loved the this one. The only downside is that the story line is very very short. I actually beat the game in one sitting. The graphics are amazing and so is everything else. I loved it how they alowed you to get medals and what not. However unlike the first one you dont get bonuses from those. ...more info
The best PSP game This is the best psp game because it takes full advantage of Graphics and the psp's features. For all you who are reading this to decide weather to buy it or not, I can help. BUY IT!!! There that should help a lot. You star wars trilogy fans, it has many weapons and vehicles not in the movies but hey, you won't find anything that sticks right to the movie. The controls at first, seem dumb but once you master them, it becomes easy to kill those pesky battle Droids. Also the sound of a Roket smashing into a AT-AT and killing it is the most satisfying thing you'll ever hear....more info
Just plain Bad I can't figure out why anyone would like this game. I bought the game to entertain me on a long flight and I was extremely disappointed.
First of all, the campagin mode is extremely short. I basically finished it in less than 2 hours. Once you have completed the campaign mode you have seen almost everything in the game. If you have done 1 ground combat and 1 space combat you have seen almost all the equipment in the game. There is nothing that is revealed later or that you can unlock with the exception of 1 new tie fighter.
In the ground battles, the movement is extremely klunky. If want to turn around it can be difficult and if you are sprinting forget about it. The weapons that are used in the game are either tedious to use or they are incredibly wimpy. It takes 5-10 shots from some of them to bring down even the weakest of enemies. Oh, and speaking of enemies, I hope you enjoy shooting the same 3 guys over and over again because there ain't a lot of difference here. In the "Galactic Conquest" mode you'll get to see a whole lot of the same maps so enjoy that.
In the space battles, there are basically 4 vehicles for each side and they have almost identical handling and weapons load outs. There is no difference between the Imperial Tie Bomber and the Rebel Y wing bomber. Truth be told all of the vehicles in the space mode seemed to be almost the same except for the difference of being able to fire 2 or 6 missles.
The "Galactic Conquest" game mode is not bad but it is extremely short, like the Campaign mode, and it doesn't have a whole lot of replay value.
The one thing I can't figure out is why they included both Clone Wars and Empire characters and then didn't include the Clone Wars stuff in either the campaign mode or in the Galactic Conquest mode. I would have really enjoyed playing clone wars battles in either mode.
I know that this game is made to appeal to Star Wars fans and I suspect that these are the only people that will like the heroes in the game. From my perspective I thought they were not much different than playing the standard troopers and I eventually stopped using them at all. Once you get over the appeal of starting at Luke Skywalkers back he is fairly useless.
If you are a huge Star Wars fan then you will probably enjoy this game. If you are anyone else this game is too short, too small and too boring. Pass this one up and find another Star Wars game....more info
It's the best Battlefront yet. I bought this to play with my son and have to say I'm impressed with the game itself. The single player follows the untold stories of "renegade squadron" who are the unknown heroes behind the greatest part of the movies. As an example it was the renegade squadron that held off the empire while the rebels fled Hoth. The entire single play campaign is played from their perspectives and the levels are varied which is nice. The best part of this game is the multiplayer which is typical Battlefront style game play. Every map has numerous capture points that you'll need to hold. The more capture points you hold the faster your enemies reinforcement points lower. When you or the enemy run out of reinforcement points the game is over. The only new element they've added is the space battles which are a neat novelty. All in all a great game to play and with the online/multiplayer capabilities you'll get a lot of bang for your buck out of this game....more info
great game I turned 13 this past april and got this game for my PSP. It held my attention for a good week but I really have not played much with it since. But it is a fun game anyway....more info
Best One Yet I bought this game soon after playing it as a rental - I really enjoyed it. You can customize your player with colors, bodies, and heads. You can also choose your own weapons and other gadgets. I enjoyed playing the infastructure mode; I am surprised it was not included in the second Battlefront game. I was surprised at how many worlds there were to play in - far more than Battlefront 2. When playing Instant Action, you can now play Hero Capture the flag. The controls took some getting used to, but now that I have them down I like them more than the originals. ...more info
Fun Game, Great Graphics, Over Too Soon "Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron" is nothing short of a great PSP game. The graphics, music, and game play are all way above average for games on portable systems. The missions are fun and the new customizing options give the player a lot of flexibility when developing their characters.
My only compliant is that the game was fairly short and can be completed in one session. The game can be replayed and supports multi-player modes, so it only loses one star on my rating for this.
Good game This game is awesome! It is my second psp game, and it is really fun, so I recommend this game to anyone who likes starwars! ...more info
An Amazing Game A solid game, no doubt. Even if you're not a star wars fan (but even better if you are) it's a spectacular game. The story mode may be rather easy, but the online play is amazing. It gets up to 16 player shoot em up action. The customiztion of your soldier and weapons is a nice touch. There are dozens and dozens of combinations. Once again, a true star wars game that offers hours of entertainment. BUY this for the online play....more info
Bring More To The Battlefront A Long time a go there was a game for PSP called Star Wars Battlefront II a fun game but lacked in various ways, the levels were no different from the play station 2 version but cut down, meaning some parts of some levels were gone or altered which did not help the experience on the PSP.
Then Renegade Squadron came, more levels, deeper levels, an actual campaign story, ONLINE multiplayer, the controls have changed the new controls allows you to move your character with the analog stick. However the controls from last time are back with minor tweaks, good or back, overall with a positive gaming experience. When it asks you to play as a hero it won't take you out of the game, you'll take the role of that hero right then and there.
The fact that you can choose what your guy looks like, class, species, color of clothings and what he brings to attack, choose your primary weapon, secondary, grenades, and much more.
A Great improvement for Star Wars Battlefront, another great game for the PSP. ...more info
Better Than Battlefront 2 I'm not saying I'm an expert on Battlefront 2, but this game just feels right when compared to its predecessor. The graphics look a little better. Movement is smooth and fluid. Flying missions are a lot of fun. Voice acting is pretty good. The cut scenes aren't anything to write home about as they are merely photos set to music and dialogue. However, you do get to customize your character. You can also earn credits to purchase lots of different weapons. I haven't tried the multiplayer yet. I think if you are a Star Wars fan you probably can't go wrong with purchasing this game. ...more info
Okay...I guess Okay,so I bought Star Wars Renegade Squadron as my first PSP game. First of all, the game has mostly bad sides, and hardly any good sides. First the good sides: Gameplay can be pretty fun. That's about it on the good side. Now the bad side. When you play as the character you customized over and over again it gets boing, also the graphics are horrible! The vehicles aren't all that great and the space battles are STUPID! The controlls aren't all that great either. Plus the jedi and sith when they hit enemies, it isn't like Star Wars Battlefront or Battlefront II. When you hit them, it doesn't make ANY sound and when you kill them ther's not as much as a groan! In my opinion this the worst Star Wars game for the PSP! Get the Force Unleashed. It's alot better!...more info
Lucasarts should use their time for BFIII for 360, not waste it on this **** This is a pure waste of money. The fact that the analog stick is on the same side as the d-pad is dooming for the psp. Lock-on replacing looking up down left and right is stupid. Yes, the customization is cool, but I was expecting an at least DECENT game. Lucasarts, Battlefronts 1 & 2 are amazing. This, however, is a sham. SHAME ON YOU LUCASARTS, USE YOUR TIME FOR BATTLEFRONT 3 OR FORCE UNLEASHED FOR XBOX 360 RATHER THAN THIS ****....more info
Renegae Squadron is a Go! I bought this game at Target. I didn't really think it could be like Battlefront on Playstation. I figured PS2 would greatly overshadow the PSP version. I was gladly wrong. Whether you like space battles, or regular battles, this game is great. It is actually a lot more customizable than PS2. You can decide whether you want to be a Wooky, or virtually any other species. You can customize the color of your clothes, and you can even be, for example, a human with a Wooky head. There is also a great selection of guns. The chain-gun is great, and barely cost any points. It has unlimited ammo, a lot of damage and rapid fire. The only thing is that it overheats. But it cools down fast. This game is great. I reaaalllly like it. I would recommend it to anyone who likes a shooter, action, fps, adventure, or role-playing game.
Note: I am not really a big Star Wars fan in general, and haven't seen most of the movies. (Some exeptions)
Basically here it is:
Difficulty: 5/5 (Even the best can die, but you restart from a command post, not restart the level which makes gameplay great)
>Average< 5.5/5.0...more info
STAR WARS returns to the psp. I love the battlefront series and I'm a huge fan of star wars.This game was better than I expected.One of the things about this game is that they removed the class selection.Now every one on the battle field has to choose their weapons.The selection is nice and offers allot of choices,but some good weapons,like the magna guard's bulldog RLR,have been removed.The new weapons are nice and some of them like the explosive blaster pistol,are great,while others [cough]orbital strike[cough] are annoying.It is obviously mobile which is great.You cannot select a lightsaber as your weapon,which is disappointing.When shooting a helpful auto-targeting reticle helps you aim,this is good if your a bad shot,in fact its hard to hit anything without this feature.the gameplay is nice and solid and space heroes are nice.You can even board a ship as a space hero.Now for the bad.There are four devices that don't have' endless ammo,and one of them isn't even a weapon!At first heroes lightsaber controls are confusing,they die fairly easily.And what happened to the bespin map?And as I said before some of the new weapons are useless.Nevertheless this is a great buy and a worthy game.Get this and you wont be sorry.
Great Game I gave this as a gift and got one as well. You can get lost in battle. Being able to use the ATAT, and all the other vehicles is great. You can also change to character from the movies.
This can be very addictive. A+++++++...more info
Best online game on psp!!! I never get hooked on video games. I decided to play the online mode and I havent stopped playing since! you get to customize your own player. you can customize your own clone trooper, wookie, stormtrooper or confederate droid.
the only thing i dont like is that theres sometime players using invincibilty codes and they dont get kicked off. i usually leave the game and find another room to play in.
you can play in space or on the battlefield.
theres soo mcuh to do in this game!
it hasnt left my psp in the last year.
Great Game, but some faults I've had this game for 5 days now. I agree with the other users in saying that the Campaign mode is extremely short. I finished it max 3 hours. But, for the PSP it is a great game, a good amount of levels, and the customization feature is awesome. The major fault, however, I have is the auto-lock when firing. This makes the game extremely easy on normal. Even on elite mode you mow down 8-10 enemies before dying. It kind of takes the fun out of it because I don't think I've lost a single battle yet, which is annoying because that's what makes games challenging, close hard fought battles. But I guess you can't fault the game entirely for that because of the limited buttons on the PSP itself. Maybe on the next PSP they will have 2 analog sticks, which will allow for much better 1st person shooting games. Also, I have not tried the online multiplayer, but when I do get wireless I'm sure it will be awesome. ...more info
Battlefront 2.5, now with more Han Solo As this game's lengthy title suggests, Renegade Squadron is just the latest in a long-running line of Battlefront games, which in turn owe a lot to the Battlefield WWII games. It's all about running around a virtual battlefield with different soldiers and their vehicles -- and is about as close to playing with Star Wars toys as you'll get in a video game, even more so than the Lego games. Claims that this is exclusive to the PSP are technically true, but remember that the same kind of game is available elsewhere on the PS2, XBOX, Windows, and Macintosh, in arguably better form (Star Wars Battlefront II).
The PSP already has a similar game to this, in the form of Star Wars Battlefront II (2005). That well-intentioned port pushed the PSP farther than it could go, with clunky controls, slow framerates, and local-only multiplayer, which was the kiss of death for a game primarily designed for online play. It still sold well and can be found cheaply, but Renegade renders it irrelevant. In single-player mode, Renegade Squadron is one of the first game to use the full 333 MHz of the PSP's clockspeed. In multiplayer mode, it drops to the usual 222 MHz to conserve power, but because of a few smart design choices, raw power isn't absolutely needed for a great experience.
What's new here? The biggest change is in the controls, which are greatly improved over the PSP version of Star Wars Battlefront II. When you're on the ground, you can holding down the R button to lock your sights on an enemy, letting you circle around him without losing your aim. While you're flying around in space (in X-Wing and TIE Fighters, as well as the Millenium Falcon), you can autoselect a target with one button, and pressing another will enable an autopilot to point you in the right direction. Since the autopilot follows lines of sight only, you'll still need to use your brain to maneuver the 3D objects in the space scenes. These changes are well-suited to the handheld, and while they make things easier, the tactical challenges are still present. I'd rather fight against my onscreen enemies than the controls of a game!
The other main difference between Renegade Squadron and the previous iteration on PSP is the inclusion of Infrastructure multiplayer. In other words, you can play on the internet with strangers, using a Gamespy-powered server explorer, much like the console and computer versions of the game. I didn't notice any significant lag when playing online, and there were plenty of opponents.
Other nice touches: the short (took me about 3 hours) campaign story is typical Star Wars, interwoven with events and characters from the films. You rescue Ackbar, you fake out the Emperor, and there's a lot of Han Solo fan service such as "Greedo shot first" in-jokes. Like most SW stories, it doesn't take many risks, except for the scene where you infiltrate the Emperor's home and smash up his holy relics, Taliban style. It's told with beautifully painted panels, which are partially animated (more than a pop-up book, less than a cartoon). Voiceovers and sound effects are of typically high LucasArts quality. Character customization is simple yet richly integrated into gameplay, forcing you to to choose the balance of health, firepower, speed, and other attributes based upon the needs of each mission.
If you've enjoyed other versions of Star Wars Battlefront, is this worth getting? In my opinion, the fixed controls and fully developed multiplayer makes this the best portable version of this kind of game yet. It can't compete with PC and console versions (with higher resolutions, better controls, and more robust online play with voice and keyboard support), but it's easily the best Star Wars game to come along since SWBF2. It's a great little game and if you're a Star Wars fan with a PSP, you should have it already. If you don't yet have a PSP, there's a white, slim PSP with a Darth Vader silkscreen packed in with this game, too!...more info
My first game This was my first game for the psp, and I am loving it. The controls are great, but the hero controls leave a little to be be desired. I love the space fights, and if they would let you attack every system from the inside it would have been perfect. This game is great,and I would recommend it to anyone. I am an experienced gamer, in case you care....more info
