In Bobby Travis's final review for 2010, he takes a look at Gameloft's Star Battalion. Star Battalion will instantly look and feel familiar to players as it contains heavy similarities to the original Star Wars Trilogy and to Star Fox. Does it strike all the right chords? Find out in Bobby's final review of 2010!
The beautiful thing about a story or game that is well-loved, is that people don't tend to mind when elements -- or even entire plotlines -- of it show up in other works. Such is the case with Gameloft's Star Battalion, an entertaining space shooter that borrows heavily from the basic plot of the original Star Wars Trilogy and a few other tales, as well as two games of yesteryear: Star Wars Rogue Squadron, and Starfox. Star Battalion does a fairly decent job of spinning out their version of these icons, leaving us with a pretty, if short, game with good gameplay and a fair amount of replay value. The game was originally released on the iPhone/iPod Touch, but has since had an HD tag slapped on it (and subsequent separate pricing) for its iPad release.
