Star Wars: Squadrons’ single-player campaign reviewed on PC by Tom Marks, also available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Squadrons is also available in VR on PC and with PSVR, and an Oculus Quest with a link cable was used for this review.
Squadrons doesn’t end up doing anything too memorable with its charming characters or interesting rival squadron setup, but this campaign still tells an entertaining story and its flight controls hit a sweet spot between accessibility and nuance – all made even better by VR and HOTAS support.
