Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (14 ):

As between the PSP and the DS versions of Star Wars Battlefront: Elite Squadron, the PSP version of the game is the better of the two. It has sharper graphics and a sharper presentation, mostly because the developers were able to fit more voice work into the story. Controls are fairly easy to learn and use, but your inability to completely control the camera detracts from the overall experience. A powerful auto-aim option makes shooting almost entirely automatic. Enemies tend to go down quite easily, making the game a breeze to play.

Online interaction: The PSP version has an online multiplayer component, but actually finding a game to play online is going to be difficult. Since there is no method of directly interfacing with other players, parents don't have to worry about exchanging personal information or hearing bad words.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
