TLDR: Dead

Let's face it, unless you're playing this game for the nostalgia, there's really not much to it anymore. There are FPS games out there with better mechanics and better gameplay than this one, even if this one was one of the best FPSes in its time, we're not in its time anymore.

For the love of god don't spend the extra money to get EA's iteration of Battlefront, get this one. Not only will Battlefront 2 bring back the nostalgia of your childhood it has a huge community for mod support, troop classes, more than four bloody maps (thanks EA), and it's a full game instead of the half baked trash you know who is trying to sell. On top of all this you get space battles, and the clone wars era (although the movies are terrible having those classes to play as is bad ♥♥♥). Through several popular mods you can add even more maps, eras, and even boost the graphics so it looks as good as games released five years later. All in all this is possibly the greatest StarWars game that will ever be released, and I can find no faults with it.
Get this game with the intentions of modding it I have over 100 quality maps and 4 eras to choose from including, the darktimes and the old republic. These are what brings the game from excellent to legendary.

A long time ago in a bedroom far,far away.....

I Played this game back when it originaly came out on the PS2 (I was a kid don't judge me) and i had a blast with it, the pc version? even better, not only is there online to be played, the graphics are way better, the game runs faster and the ammount of mods seem do rivel doom! (Original not 2016) Overall an amazing game for any die hard star wars fan or even a non star wars fan looking for a cool third/first person (Yes you can do both) shooter/ action game 5 stars.

This game is a must own for any fan of Star Wars. This game is my favorite Star Wars game of all time. It's $10 and delivers way more content than the new EA Battlefront. Buy this game instead! Graphics aren't everything!

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.

EDIT: The reason I have not played this in a long time is it keeps crashing my pc, I think it's because I upgraded to windows 10 (What a big mistake that was).

Tried playing this on windows 10 and it was crashing to desktop every time i started a match. There's a weird fix however:

Simply plug something into your mic port on your pc (mic or headphones) when launching the game from steam. I dont know why it works, nor do I really care since I can now play this masterpiece of a classic game.

Played 96 minutes of it and I know I haven't played enough to make a review.But who gives a damn?

Anyways....

This game....It's just soo much better than today's battlefront..I mean the graphics aren't as good but it's soo much more fun also there's a campaign and I'm just pretty much comparing it because I mean EA could've done such a better job with the better technology.Gameplay is good,I love instant action it's something to do even though I win everytime.

Overall this game is a thumbs up!

EVERYONE WHOS GAME CRASHES GOTO YOUR SOUND GO TO RECORDING DEVICES RIGHT CLICK IN THE BOX CLICK SHOW HIDDEN DEVICES AND SET YOUR DEVICE TO "STEREO MIX"

This game is amazing I use to play it so much as a kid probably more than 1000 hours this game was just amazing but its up to you to decide what you think about it.

This fix is probably needed for a lot of you if your friends own the game but can't play it tell them this.

This game allows you to live out all of your Star Wars dreams and battles. I've played this game my entire life and it has never gotten old. Tight controls, intelligent AI, breathtaking environments (even more so than EA's Battlefront simply because this game has charm), and incredibly fun SPACE BATTLES! TAKE THAT EA!

Honestly though, this game is not only a monument in the Star Wars franchise but a milestone of gaming as well. Even if you are not a huge Star Wars fan, pick up this game. The reviews should speak for themselves.

P.S. If you even find yourself bored with the vanilla experience or just wanting something new, download GameRanger and play with others online. Or download one of the hundreds of mods and maps that are still being made and supported for this game!

57.5 hours, still going, and i've only just started to use mods, so plenty more hours of fun ahead.

Whereas EA's Battlefront.... I'll leave it to you to judge how quickly it becomes repetitive.

All these memories coming back... I absolutely loved this game growing up as a kid, bringing my Ps2 and this game to my friends house to play this with him. I would wake up early in the morning just to play a few Conquest games before school. Thankfully I got it on sale for only $2.49! This is surely one of my top 5 favorite games and will always be 10/10 Would capture command post again and again and again.


P.S If your game keeps shutting off when you get into a game, turn off sound in audio options and then start game then turn it back on. It helped for me and there are also tons of other ways to get the game runing just check youtube.
