Summary includes a Game Audio article on 'Star Wars: Battlefront', a review of iZotope RX 5 and our France Geo Focus.

AMI's Top Ten summary this week includes John Broomhall's interview with DICE's Ben Minto on the audio work that went into the new game Star Wars: Battlefront (pictured), and our France Geo Focus.
