AHHHHHHHHHH-"Death Sound of Stormtroopers and Clone Troopers"

This is one of the best games ever made. Honest to God I'm not being sarcastic.
Remember when everyone used to play Star Wars Battlefront on the PS2 when they were young?
Yeah. That's what I thought.
This game for me is extremley nostalgic and a hell a lot of fun!

Re-releasing due to reviews not showing on page.
Nonserious: Fell off the map as Grievous, he replied "This battle bores me!"
10/10
Serious review being worked on!
This absolutely a fantastic game. A great addition to the Star Wars franchise. Being more based off of Episode III, it adds Order 66, the Grievous era??, and it adds heroes to the scene.
Star Wars is a really good franchise, and games like these are the kind it deserves.
I was looking forward to 1313, but now? I want the sequel to this the most. Sadly, as I've heard that EA making it... It's probably doomed.
Pros:
+ A good storyline, sadly doesn't even finish the Emperor Strikes Back.
+ Great music, but it's Star Wars music, so that was kinda obvious!
+ Modding! You can mod the game! New maps, new classes, new weapons, NEW GRAPHICS. It still looks better than Watch_Dogs though. But what do I know, I'm jumping on the bandwagon.
+ Storyline focuses on the clones, which is something we don't get much.
+ The introduction of Hero characters, such as Jango Fett, Obi-Wan Kenboi, and my favorite, General Grievous! (Fear him you Jedi scum!)
+SPACE BATTLES

Cons:
- As I said in the pros, the storyline doesn't go past the Battle of Hoth. That's dissapointing.
- No more multiplayer other than Gameranger...

So how about my final verdict?
I really enjoy this game. It has a great campaign, great multiplayer, etc, etc. It's moddable too! Graphics outdated? Get a mod.
I'm not good at explaining why I love it, but it gets a 9/10 from me.

SWB2 is an alright game, and I love it, but you will always want a little more from it. The game is from 2005, so there can only be so much, but what is there is amazing. The gameplay is good, the story is good, the level design is good. But there just isn't enough. Don't get me wrong, I highly recommend it, but there is not much to go off of. The thing that really makes the game, is mods, which the community loves, and therfore will hold your hand in installing them.

In the end, Star Wars Battlefront 2 is a great star wars game, and a good game. But get mods though, if you don't, the experience is going to get dry after about 8 or 9 hours.

Oh, and also, you can get multiplayer through 3rd party programs, I go with Game Ranger, great support. Don't worry though, you're not missing out on much if you don't play multiplayer, I never had much fun with it, and all the people who did played it to death, and they are really good. They'll rip out your ♥♥♥, suck on your hemroids like lolly pops, and trust me when I say this, not a pretty picture.

Good value for $10, and one of the best Star Wars games ever made, and the best with mods.

Quite frankly, this game was everything to me. It was fun, it had good gameplay, the story was alright, and the multiplayer was very fun. This was until June of 2014. That was when the multiplayer shut down, and I haven't played it since. Don't get me wrong, the game is still brilliant with all of its moddable content, but the multiplayer was the main focus from the get go. There are still servers on GameRangers and other places like that, but the connection and people just aren't the same. If you're willing to pay $10 and deal with the horrible pings from those companies, then go right ahead. If you want good multiplayer and fun campaign, you may want to go buy something like KOTOR.

Although it may have bad graphics compared to some other titles in today's gaming world...
This game is still AWSOME!
From the ease of the controlls to the range of classes, it builds up to a very enjoyable game that will only set the bar high for the third Battlefront that is hopefully coming out in connection withy the new films. (Fingers crossed)
So all in all, you should get it if only to have some good expiriance with the prequal universe...

After playing ~140 hours, downloading 20+ maps/mods, and finding texture packs to upgrade the looks, I still can' get tired of this game. It's a classic that I've grown up with and I'll never get tired of.

Also, if you want to play multiplayer, Gameradar is on for that, as well as Tunngle.

You can have Star Wars battles on the ground at various Star Wars locations, or in space. It was fun six years ago, and it's still fun now. The AI is not very good, of course. It's not the most challenging game ever. But it is really fun.
