"Live the Saga! Live the Epic Battles!"

Finally, what Star Wars fans have waited for in a videogame since well, 1977. Star Wars: Battlefront is an absolutely amazing game, both single player and multiplayer.

Graphics - 9/10
The graphics in this game look very polished, and are very nice at sometimes. This and the sound really draw you in. This game has a huge immersion factor.
The graphics overall are very good, but it would have been nice to see better textures, particularly on the Endor map.

Sound - 10/10
The sound in this game is some of the best I've ever heard. From the blasters to the score, everything is %100 pure grade A Star Wars, which is great. The score uses classic Star Wars themes from the movies. All the blasters and suck sound great.

Gameplay - 9/10
The gameplay plays like a cross between Brute Force and Halo. Most players will find that a choice of 1st Person or 3rd Person view is a welcome one. The goal of the game is to take control points while eliminating the other team. Basically, Battlefield 1942 Star Wars style. There are over 30 vehicles, including all your favorites. There are 4 different factions - CIS(Trade Federation & Separatists), Clone Army, Rebel Alliance, and of course the Galactic Empire. All have different vehicles, weapons, and troops. Its absolutely astonishing. Add up to 16 players on Xbox Live and you got yourself a winner!

Good points
+graphics & sound
+Xbox live play
+30+ vehicles

Bad points
-occasional textures look plain
-repetitive if you dont have Live
-cant play as a jedi, even though they are in the game

All in all, Star Wars: Battlefront is probably the 2nd greatest Star Wars game ever, right on the Jedi Cloak coattails of Knights of the Old Republic. If you have Xbox Live and you like Star Wars even remotely, its a no brainer: buy it. If you dont have Live, then this is one the games to buy it for. A great game, gets a 9/10.
