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 Graphics outdated?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.

A synthesized battle droid voice comes over into your ears.
Enemy units detected inside the command craft.

Seconds later, the CIS battlecruiser bursts into chunks, wisps of fire dying in the vacuum of space as sunlight crests the nearby Republic planet.

You chuckle and a "Victory" readout appears before you.

And that's just a moment in Battlefront 2.

- - -

While Star Wars Battlefront 2 is, y'know, ancient at this point, it is still a beauty in gaming and the serious nostalgia trip for so many of us. I, being a late-comer to gaming and Battlefront 2 being one of the earlier console games I played (along with GUN and I believe Flatout), can quickly say that this game is gorgeous and sold the industry to me.

It's massive, it's immersive, it's quick-to-play, and it's Star Wars! Who doesn't like Star Wars? Well, plenty of people, but... hey, you can't dislike the adorable Stormtroopers.

You've got all the stuff other shooting games do. Guns, people to shoot guns, and some extra things like vehicles. Then there's the space battles, which make an entirely different challenge and one of the most glorious flying experiences in gaming, and then you've got the tactical 'Conquest' part where you put around a giant fleet of spacecraft for your favorite faction in the Star Wars movies.

Rebels, Empire/Republic, CIS: You can play as any of them, which is great fun. Each have their own soldiers and classes, allowing different experiences for every team. It's especially cool to roll around as a droideka, then unfurl and be destroyed by a Jedi. At least you're the envy of your friends.

The battles themselves are manic and titanic. Hoth a devoid planet? Not when you're in the middle of a 100+ person skirmish between Rebels and Imperials. AT-AT action is amazing, until you're taken down by some jerk in a cheap snowspeeder. Maybe it was SKYWALKER?

No.

There's also that option to play as a Jedi or Sith or melodramatic bounty hunter popping up every now-and-then, but they're lame and die too quickly. I don't suggest them. Well, MBH is alright, but who wants to get eaten by a sandpit monster?

There's the few issues, like absurdly dumb AI and logical errors (downwards gravity in space?), but they're far and few compared to the joy this game brings.

I couldn't recommend this enough. And it's only 10 bucks USD!

10/10, the reason it took so long to make the new Battlefront game due 2015, is probably because they couldn't improve upon the first one...... ;)

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 a good and fun campaign, you may want to go buy something like KOTOR.

I absolutely love this game! It's my favorite Star Wars game of all time. I'm so dissappointed they shut down multiplayer, but I still recommend it for the fun single player action.
