I used to play this so much as a child on my PS2, I bought the game on PC to try and bring back some good memories. I got used to the controls pretty quick, graphics are as good as ever. Its nice to see that an old game like this still receives so much support from the community, I got a mod for it and it includes some characters from The Force Awakens and other features. Overall, great purchase well worth £6.99.

Definitely worth a play. The game spans the eras of both the Original and Prequel trilogies of Star Wars, and offers 4 distinct factions: The Empire, the Rebellion, the Republic and the CIS. Each have their own unique classes, in turn offering many different ways to play the game; they all compliment each other. The space battles are also fun and engaging, and much like ground combat there are different and well balanced ships for each faction, all doing their part in helping you to destroy that enemy cruiser. The game offers many other modes too, such as CTF, Hero Assault, and Hunt. Get bored? No worries, the game has a still-active modding community that is dedicated to creating custom maps and units to keep the game fresh.

Star Wars Battlefront II is 10.99 and better than EA's Battlefront which I would have to sell my house to buy. That's saying a lot considering all the technological advances we've made in the past 11 years. The gameplay is simple to master and fun to play. The only thing bad about this game is the graphics, and the game came out in 2005 so no real problem there. A great game if you're a die-hard Star Wars fun like I am, and if you're not, it's a good gift for someone who is.

As a kid, this game's given me and my sister many, many hours of enjoyment as we played splitscreen on the good ol' PS2. Back last summer sale, I bought this as a sort of "thanks" for all the good memories I have from my childhood. In the few minutes I played to check it out, I saw it was still as fun as I remembered Battlefront 2 to be. Lots of maps, lots of game modes, lots of entertainment. And from what I've seen, there are a lot of mods that add maps and characters being made to this day, which lengthen the game's lifespan even more. Certainly much better than EA's rendition of Battlefront (I wish Battlefront 3 didn't get cancelled, that version was supposed to be the chosen one!), and I fully recommend it :)

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.

Star Wars: Battlefront II is a 2005 first- and third-person shooter video game based on the Star Wars film franchise. Developed by Pandemic Studios and published by LucasArts it is a sequel to 2004's Star Wars: Battlefront and the second game in the Battlefront series.The game features new vehicles, characters, game mechanics, maps, and missions compared to the original Battlefront. Unlike its predecessor, Battlefront II features a more narrative-based campaign, retelling portions of the Star Wars story from the point of view of a veteran Imperial stormtrooper, reminiscing about his tour of duty in service of both the Galactic Republic and as part of the Galactic Empire. Gameplay additions over Battlefront include the use of Jedi, additional game modes such as hero assault, and objective-based space battles.

The general objective in most missions is to eliminate the enemy faction. Like Star Wars Battlefront, the game is split into two eras, the Clone Wars and the Galactic Civil War. You have the ability to choose between six classes during gameplay. Four class types are common to all factions; infantry, heavy weapon, sniper and engineer. In addition to the four standard classes, each faction has two unique classes which unlock by scoring a predetermined number of points. For the Rebellion faction, the Bothan Spy and the Wookiee; for the Empire, The Officer and The Dark Trooper; for the Republic, the Commander and the Jet Trooper; and for the CIS, the Magnaguard and the Droideka.

Battlefront II contains only one campaign, called Rise of the Empire. This set of missions is presented as the narration of a veteran of the 501st Legion, known as Vader's Fist, beginning with an attack on the planet Mygeeto during the Clone Wars and ending with the assault on Hoth as depicted in The Empire Strikes Back. There are a total of 18 missions, four of which are optional space missions.

Overall I would give STAR WARS Battlefront II a score of 8/10, it is a fun and entertaining game that doesn't have very much problems and the instant action with the bots is just awesome. Having played DICE's new STAR WARS Battlefront, I decided to go back and try the originals and I realized how much better they were, no customization and ranks, just pure fun. So if you're looking for a fun STAR WARS game I would recommend this as it just beats any other!.
