"This game is good for any star wars fans"
The graphics are good, especially during the space battles. The explosions in space are great. The ships look like they do in the movies. The troops look good; the detail is very good on the armor. The guns look like they do in the movies as well. The Jedi look fine and show detail of the sabers. The hero characters like Han solo and Boba Fett look very good and show the tears and wears of battle.
The blasters sound very good and you can tell between each gun. The light sabers sound good and the force shock has a good ring to it. The music in the game is the best from the movies and gets you in the Star Wars mood. The space ships sound awesome. It is so cool when a tie fighter flies over your head.
Game play: 10/10
This is where the game is shines. The controls of the basic troops are the same and I thank the designers for not changing something that already worked. The weapons include: blaster rifles, pistols, rocket launchers, and grenades. The vehicles for the original game are still here, like the AT-AT and AT-ST. Capturing command post work the same and there are modes such as flag and assault. There are also new maps and planets to explore. They also removed some of the maps from the old game. If you have not heard they have added Jedi or hero characters for ground battles. You have to do a certain number of things to unlock your more powerful units, like capturing command posts and killing enemies. Once you unlock your powerful units you will have 30 seconds to decide of you want to be your hero character or not. The hero characters don't have health they have a bar and if they don't kill anyone for a certain amount of time they will die. There most fun character is Yoda. He is so small and everybody has to look down to hit him. I think the Jedi characters add more fun to the game, but sometimes they over power it. The spaces battles are fun and really never slow down the game. You get spawned in the capital ships and get in an air craft. Instead of capturing command posts, you have to get a certain number of points to win the battle. You either have to shoot down enemies or destroy parts of the enemies' capital ships. The flying controls are very easy to learn and give you a break from consent ground battles. The game play is very good.
The replay of this is game is high because you can never have the same result and offers a nice break from the normal types of games.
This game is very good and I would recommend buying this game right now
