have to admit my interest with anything related to
Star Wars is pretty much a thing of the past. The
last movie caused me to tune out anything that had
the words Star Wars in it. Now I know there are die-hard
fans out there that are getting ready to write hate
mail with my name on it. I was asked to rent the game
Star Wars Battle Front to play online with a friend
and I will admit the game was fun to play. It had
a great offline mode and an intense online mode as
well. I soon forgot all about my personal grudges
with Mr. Lucas and the way he destroyed some of my
favorite movies. I just enjoyed the game for what
it was a great game. After playing the game for a
while, I noticed that I unlocked a trailer for SWRC.
Although it was short, it really looked neat so I
went looking for more information on the newest game

of advanced storm troopers. Each of the main characters

The days of light-sabers are over and each member
has a powerful weapon. It looks like the game will
be broken into 3 major areas. These include the planet
Geonsis, a large Republic ship and the planet of Kashyyyk.
Each level will feature detailed graphics and different
creatures to fight. The game also seems to be team
driven. To succeed teammates will need to find and
fire turrets for added cover while the demolitions
expert has time to set the explosives. The game will
also feature some surprises from the third film in
the new trilogy.
PC version will be released first and is almost done.

impressive, backed by an impressive storyline and
