  • More Classes and Vehicles - Now choose from six distinct soldier classes, plus bonus hero characters for each of the four factions: Rebels, Imperials, CIS and the Republic. Then jump into more than 30 diverse ground and space vehicles, including the clone BARC speeder, AT-RT and new Jedi Starfighter and ARC 170.

I ♥♥♥♥♥♥ LOVE THIS GAME. This is the best star wars game of all time for a ♥♥♥♥ load of reasons
1. Its 10 dollars compared to star wars battlefront EA which is 60
2. It has something like 22 maps I think
3. It has space combat
4. It has a decent campaign that fits in to the main story from the movies
5. It has modding support
6. You can Kill Ewoks
7. 7 game modes (see what I did there)
8. It will keep you entertained for hours (on the ps2 version I've played something like 1000 hours)
9. Multiplayer still work throw third-party servers
10. Galactic Conquest which is the best

This is some of the reasons that this is the best star wars of all time.

Looking back...

All the game modes are Instant Action repurposed, the space battles are repetitive, the A.I. is attrocious, and the force powers except for light saber throw sucks, and it looks dated...

...but it's a lot of fun.

"The Saga Begins"

A long, long time ago
In a galaxy far away
Naboo was under an attack
And I thought me and Qui-Gon Jinn
Could talk the federation into
Maybe cutting them a little slack
But their response, it didn't thrill us
They locked the doors and tried to kill us
We escaped from that gas
Then met Jar Jar and Boss Nass
We took a bongo from the scene
And we went to Theed to see the Queen
We all wound up on Tatooine
That's where we found this boy...

Oh my my this here Anakin guy
May be Vader someday later - now he's just a small fry
And he left his home and kissed his mommy goodbye
Sayin' "Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi"
"Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi"

Did you know this junkyard slave
Isn't even old enough to shave
But he can use the Force, they say
Ah, do you see him hitting on the queen
Though he's just nine and she's fourteen
Yeah, he's probably gonna marry her someday
Well, I know he built C-3PO
And I've heard how fast his pod can go
And we were broke, it's true
So we made a wager or two
He was a prepubescent flyin' ace
And the minute Jabba started off that race
Well, I knew who would win first place
Oh yes, it was our boy

We started singin' ...
My my this here Anakin guy
May be Vader someday later - now he's just a small fry
And he left his home and kissed his mommy goodbye
Sayin' "Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi"
"Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi"

Now we finally got to Coruscant
The Jedi Council we knew would want
To see how good the boy could be
So we took him there and we told the tale
How his midi-chlorians were off the scale
And he might fulfill that prophecy
Oh, the Council was impressed, of course
Could he bring balance to the Force?
They interviewed the kid
Oh, training they forbid
Because Yoda sensed in him much fear
And Qui-Gon said "Now listen here"
"Just stick it in your pointy ear"
"I still will teach this boy"

He was singin' ...
My my this here Anakin guy
May be Vader someday later - now he's just a small fry
And he left his home and kissed his mommy goodbye
Sayin' "Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi"
"Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi"

We caught a ride back to Naboo
'Cause Queen Amidala wanted to
I frankly would've liked to stay
We all fought in that epic war
And it wasn't long at all before
Little Hotshot flew his plane and saved the day
And in the end some Gunguns died
Some ships blew up and some pilots fried
A lot of folks were croakin'
The battle droids were broken
And the Jedi I admire most
Met up with Darth Maul and now he's toast
Well, I'm still here and he's a ghost
I guess I'll train this boy

And I was singin' ...
My my this here Anakin guy
May be Vader someday later - now he's just a small fry
And he left his home and kissed his mommy goodbye
Sayin' "Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi"
"Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi"

We were singin' ...
My my this here Anakin guy
May be Vader someday later - now he's just a small fry
And he left his home and kissed his mommy goodbye
Sayin' "Soon I'm gonna be a Jedi"

When EA said they were making STAR WARS Battlefront I didn't think it was going to be this good, although the graphics does seem a little outdated, the gameplay makes up for it though, and Steam quite clearly got the date release for this game wrong.

This game is one of the best star wars games I have ever played. You can play as, Chewbacca, Darth Maul, Luke Skywalker, Jango Fett, The Emporor, and MUCH more. You play as a squadron of clone troopers called the "501st" in story mode. But, if you have always dreamed what it would be like to ACTUALLY fly a TIE fighter, or, a jedi spaceship, then this is the game for you. Also, if you click on the tab in the game called instant action, then select mos eisley, and set the mode to assault, then you can play as every jedi and sith in the game. But, multiplayer is actually an option in this game, if you download a software called "Gameranger" you can play with other players.

I hope this review was helpful!

This game has some of my best childhood memories. I'll always remember reanacting the battle of hoth any running around as luke and vader. As a Star Wars fan for as long as I can remember, this game captures the greatness of Star Wars, a fight versus good and evil and that's why I love it. The force is strong in this game, and that's why I love it. May the force be with you, always, battlefront 2.

A brilliant game, the only real draw back is the lack of online play (due to servers being shut down) but other software exists that gets around that probem.
galactic conquest can get a little repetitive though and would have benefited from a better AI since i find it is utterly predictable however the combat is great on both planets and in space. The campaign is also really good and the storyline about the 501st is interesting.
the graphics are a bit dated but thats to be expected with an old game

You should definitely get this game on sale.

One thing I find this game funny is that it says that there is "partial controller support" but, when I plugged in my controller and messed witht he settings a little bit, it has full controller support XD
