Roundup: Here's What The Critics Are Saying About Star Wars: Squadrons

The first reviews for tomorrow's release of Star Wars: Squadrons have gone live, and they're generally looking very positive, although keep in mind that some are only based on the single-player campaign for now.

We've rounded up just a few of them below, so let's see what reviewers are saying about the game so far...

Game Informer (8.25/10)

"Squadrons’ single-player may fizzle out frequently like a malfunctioning hyperdrive motivator, but the multiplayer continually impresses and is worth the price of entry alone."

IGN (8/10)

"Star Wars: Squadrons’ single-player campaign missions are a feast for Star Wars fans’ eyes and ears, especially in VR. Its engaging space combat is a great balance of approachable arcade control with the added nuance of simulation-like systems..."

VG247 (4/5)

"Squadrons feels like more than the sum of its parts. Most importantly, it does exactly what it set out to do – and does it very well indeed. It’s EA’s smallest-scale console Star Wars title yet – but also its best."

GamesRadar (3.75/5)

"Star Wars: Squadrons offers an exhilarating take on dogfighting in a galaxy far, far away, which helps elevate a functional single-player story and provides a strong foundation for a focused multiplayer experience."

Star Wars: Squadrons currently has an OpenCritic rating of 80 based based on 11 reviews. The game makes the hyperspace jump to Xbox One tomorrow, October 2nd.
