Star Wars: Squadrons Review
This is a nugget among all games related to the universe. Star Wars. Here the user is not a Jedi, not a Sith, or even an ordinary soldier. He is a space fighter pilot. And if so, then you have to fly a lot in space.
A choice is offered between two sides – New republic and Galactic empire… They have four fighters, each of which belongs to a specific class: fighters, interceptors, bombers and support.
New Republic has access to series space planes Wing: A-wing, X-Wing, Y-Wing and U-Wing. The situation is exactly the same with the other side – the Empire. She has access to the series TIE: TIE / ln, TIE / IN, TIE / rp and TIE / sa.
The graphics are pretty nice. The cockpit will immerse the gamer as much as possible in the atmosphere of space battles that took place at the end of the first Galactic War, since the game is purely from the first person. To the “From the third person” mode you won’t switch…
There is not only an interesting story campaign, but also a multiplayer mode that includes a standard “Skirmish” (the battle is in a 5v5 format), as well as unique “Battles of the fleets”. Consider below the features of the latter.
Each side begins the battle with a choice of strategy. Then the players fly into space and push through the enemy’s line, while defending their cruiser… Whoever successfully defended him, he moves on until he reaches the final goal – destruction flagship… When this happens, the game ends and the results are summed up.
It doesn’t matter if single player is running or multiplayer, the gamer can work on appearance your ship. You can change the color, stick all kinds of emblems, and also put other decorations in the cockpit. A large number of customization options will make your spaceship unique.
Developers promise support cross-play – this will allow PC users to interact with those who prefer gaming consoles such as Xbox or Playstation.
