Star Battalion HD is a 3D air combat and is released by Gameloft.
The application opens to some nice FMV of a massive space combat. You can select between the campaign and the multiplayer game. The campaign gives you a short training mission to learn the basics. Then it is into the game for real, and the game itself is a tough air combat game.
Multiplayer is available via Wi-Fi or BlueTooth for local player or via Wi-Fi for online.
The graphics are very good. The black edges that were present in the iPhone version are mostly gone. Sounds, Music and Voices are all very good.
On the upside:
- Excellent Air combat game
- Good controls both with joystick and tilt.
On the downside:
- The speed controls are not great, and felt they could have been better implemented.
Overall, this game is excellent. It plays well and I can see the campaign keeping me busy for a while. With the addition of a good multi player game this will extend the longevity of the game. This game is more at home on the iPad version, than the iPhone version. The game has a quality feel to it.
