I see many reviews here bashing EAs version of Battlefront, but I feel it necessary to highlight many problems with this game:

Poor AI. (Forgivable, as the game came out over a decade ago)
Terrbile flight controls.

Inconsistencies with the movies.

Bad hero design.

Bad graphics, if you haven't played this game in a while you might remember it looking better (I did) but the graphics have not held up very well. (Again, forgivable given the game's age)

Can be very problematic on certain hardware setups.

Lack of multiplayer servers without installing a third party program.


And now for the good points:
Nostalgia. Probably the reason most people buy this game. If you had fun playing this game as a child you will probably find some enjoyment in it today.

Multiple Eras. This game spans both The Clone Wars and The Galactic Civil war and features many vehicles and characters from both.

Decent campaign. Overall the campaign is alright, but nothing to write home about. It gives insight into the thoughts of the clone troopers you see in episodes 2 and 3 and shows the Republic's transformation into the Empire from their point of view. The gameplay during campaign missions is fairly simple. It's either: Fight to and objective, capture it, become hero, finish, or fight to objective, destroy it, become hero, finish. It's alright but can become repetitive and boring at times.


Many Maps. Practically every iconic location from the Star Wars movies is represented in Battlefront 2. The maps aren't particularly well designed, but the do a decent job of portraying the areas and usualy feature an easter egg or two.


I would recommend this game if you are a massive Star Wars fan or someone looking for a nostalgia kick, but compared to many modern shooters, and even some shooters from the time, it doesn't hold up. I may hold an unpopular opinion, but I prefer the newer Battlefront to this one in nearly all aspects besides content. Overall I would give Battlefront 2 a 6/10.

This game is by far one of my favorite games, and still is pretty amazing (being ten years old). I honestly prefer this over the new battlefront, just because this has singleplayer, is fun and exciting, and has so many maps...HIGHLY RECCOMEND THIS PRODUCT!

Nothing beats playing Mos Eisley on assault mode! Nostalgia may be blinding me but this game is still pretty entertaining.

I wish the latest battlefront game had half of the charm this one has, there is just some quirky vibe to it that gets you hooked, archaic graphics and all.

8/10

Used to play this game all the time back in the day. Many childhood memories of playing this weekend mornings with my father. I am extatic that it is now on steam and have greatly enjoyed it. I only wish that the first one was also on here, because there are maps on the first one that I love.

Star Wars Battlefront II (2005)
-9.99
Star Wars Battlefront EA (2015)
-59.99

EA went backwards, not forward.

1/6 the price, triple the content, mods, single player, campaign, instant action, galactic conquest.
One of the greatest games out there and even now the gameplay holds up. Graphically improved with mods there's barely anything to complain about. One of the best games I've ever played.

My only complaint about this game, is somehow the community hasn't rated it Overwhelmingly positive.

Easily the best Star Wars game.
Ever. Shame they never released another Battlefront game that improved on the forumla laid down by 1 and 2.

The first time i played this was on the PS2. For being such an old game it's still a lot of fun, and i'm not such a fan of other older games i know. Many people say that the mods are really important (because the graphics aren't too good etc.) I don't think so personally. I have downloaded a few mods but it doesn't enhance the gameplay for me, vanilla already works fine in my case.
The story isn't really a story, more like a lot of the same type of missions but on different maps. I still enjoy playing it sometimes, but because of the same gameplay all the time i don't play for long.
The mode called "Instant" is my favourite. Here you can choose whatever map you'd like and which gamemode to play. A tip here is to download a/many mappacks, especially Space to Ground maps, they are the most fun because they let you fly in a spaceship and fire on ground units at the same time and a lot more :)
I really recommend this game, both for the exploring parts and because Star Wars is epic overall and if you've seen the movies i really think this game is more appealing to you because you will notice many details and characters from the movies while playing.
