    This caught my eye. It's a new Star Wars game for the DS developed by nSpace. They developed the DS versions of Call of Duty. The trailer itself looks pretty nice, and boasts some flight battles as well as on foot combat. Take a look-



    Game coming November 3 this year. There is also a PSP version, which I assume is different, but I wanted to post what the DS version looks like. I'd like to try it out.

    Hmm not bad looking, the flight sections look decent anyway. Im a big fan of the Battlefront games, but I dont really like the isometric perspective for the on foot sections in this one. It really should be third person to be a proper battlefront game. Im assuming it has online play, if not meh, waste of time.

    Looks really pretty for a DS game. I'll be looking forwards to it. It'll be downloaded, and slapped to the back of the queue.

    The genre on the DS isn't that great though, with the limited amounts of polygons the DS can draw. the Lord of the Rings game that was also Battlefront-esque did it okay. But multiplayer on that did not really shine well, and the limited classes were no fun. I hope this turns out like the LoR, except fixing the problems. Seems like there will be a pretty nice storyline and mini-game full, assuming the space battles and turret mounts are.

    I'm really looking forwards to it. The DS is my favorite handheld. I'd like to see the touchscreen not being gimmicked too. And I for one, like the bird's eye view. It's not really isometric, but I hope the camera can be repositioned. If this outclasses the PSP version in the chance of a million, I'll go out and buy a dozen copies. N-Space is great.

    Looks great, I'm still waiting for the new golden sun for DS.

    Kingdom Hearts actually plays pretty well.

    Can't be any worse than that Clone Wars one that just came out. That was one boring game.

    As far as this one, I was sold after seeing the flying sequences.

    Looks like the other SW games but more goal oriented than the other BF games

    Most third party anti-piracy is relatively easy. Sure, they have some toughies now and then, but they aren't anything compared to first party AP.

    Anyway, the isometric view for shooting looks meh, but the flight sections look awesome. If only they gave it the classic over-the-shoulder, TPS view of previous SWBF games.

    The part of the game where you're on foot, top-down view. It looks like you control the character with the D-pad and aim the blaster with the touch screen. Best control scheme ever.

    On an unrelated note, who'd like to see Smash TV on the DS?

    that's what it looks like to me too, if so might be kinda fun. space battles look lame, i think they are planar so you can go left and right but not up and down.. =\
