XBN got a pretty interesting look at the game, i give a few of the things they said (march addition)

"Rebel pilots are wimpy, but tehy can repair ships and also use grappling guns to hoist themselves up to the underbelly of the huge AT-AT to blow it up with explosives"

"Even with its multiplayer guts not fully intact, Battlefront hints at a great time in the making. It's Hard to tell how the game's framerate will turn out, but Tso says 30fps is a sure bet."

"A game like this sinks or soars based on the stregnth of its vehicles. Battlefront certainly does not disapoint. Here, players will be able to mount and ride tauntauns, X-Wings, snowspeeders, AT-STs, and spider tanks, among others. Certain vehicles accommodate two players, one driving and one manning the guns-and the larger units, such as the Empire's AT-AT's, will be able to transport units above and behond the two-man crew"

Now this does sound good, riding a tauntauns sounds appealing. The "spider tank," must mean AT-MT from the Jedi Acadamy series which if is true will be the first reference from EU.

I thought the spider tank was the Seperatist tank on Geonosis in Episode II? It literally does look like a spider, with one big turret in the front.
