Even though it is a old game, it still remains as one of the best games. I've played this game on my PlayStation 2 for hundreds of hours, and I enjoyed every second of it. If you don't get this game, you'll regret it.

If you are wanting to play multiplayer but can't, what you have to do is download GameRanger, and it will allow you to join/host games, including Star Wars Battlefront 2. Like this review so more people see this review, so more people can play multiplayer!

Star wars battlefront 2 is one of the best games I have ever played, and it is much more replayable than the EA reboot.
I bought the game when it was on sale, and it works perfectly, although you need a mic plug if you're playing on a 64-bit system.

I think even 11 years after it's initial release, it is still worth playing, I admit the graphics aren't THAT great, but Gameplay matters. I used to play this all the time on the PS2, and it is maybe #2 on the games I played the most for that console.

Nostalgia driven 9/10 Buy this instead of the EA money-grinder













Hahaha, actually, It's more of a 9.9999/10
Why are you still reading reviews? BUY IT! IT'S WORTH THE MONEY!

This game is a blast. Even after the release of the new battlefront I still come back to this one. This battle front has amazing game modes and galatic conquest. This is one of my favorite games, and I love to play it when ever I can.

I've spent over a 1000 hours on this game upon my ps2 within my childhood days and i just can't seem to stop. The mods/maps created for this game are amazing. Sadly the multiplayer online servers don't work. There is a method to actually play online with people but i'm not sure if it still works. Played it once on pc, got wrecked by a rocket launcher. Overall a great game to play.

Honestly, one of the best games you can ever buy for $10. Don't waste $40-60 on that EA garbage; instead drop an easy $10 on this. I've poured countless hours into this game back when I played it on the PS2, and I was very pleased to find that it was brought to Steam. (A little salty Battlefront 1 isn't on Steam but that's okay.)

Pros:
-Large amount of maps (20-30+ last I recall)
-4 factions, 6 classes within each faction
-Ground vehicles (AAT, AT-ST, AT-AT, STAP, (the spider and rolling ones from Episode 2 on Geonosis), IFT-T/IFT-X)
-Plenty of gamemodes (Conquest, One-/Two-Flag CTF, Assault, Heroes vs Villains, Hunt, probably more I'm missing)
-ACTUAL SINGLEPLAYER CAMPAIGN (follows the 501st ["Vader's Fist"] from Clone Wars to Galactic Civil War)
-Assault: A.K.A. SPACE BATTLES (dogfighting also feels much more comfortable than EA Battlefront, in my opinion)
-Hunt: you can play as Jawas, Tusken Raiders, Geonosians, Wookies, Wampas
-Decent AI
-$10
-Runs well
-No $50 DLC, or any at all for that matter
-It's like Battlefield Star Wars except not garbage like EA Battlefront

Pro/con:
-No more invincibility code (I think, never tried with a controller)

Cons:
-Doesn't have that one mechanic like in Elite Squadron where you can move from ground to air to space to flagship all in the same battle
-Graphics are dated, being from over ten years ago

But otherwise, you're making the most with your money buying this.

I think it's funny how a game released 11 years ago when the first xbox and ps2 were still getting games developed for them is so much better than a new version that came out recently. Graphics are outdated but what do you expect from a game made in 2005. The timeline is relatively accurate compared to the Star Wars timeline. The amount of maps avaliable is overwhelming in a good way. A good amount of popular characters to play rather than only being able to play disposable combat units is always appreciated. A medium sized amount of gamemodes to choose from. Why is this much better then Star Wars Battlefront 3? Well because EA. Should a remastered version be made and released? Yes. 12/10

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.

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!

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!
