An absolutely flawless game, every moment is enjoyable. Sadly the multiplayer is down but the singleplayer campgain is fantastic. The game has a huge selection of mods online that you can download and play. Since the game has been cut in half content wise the game is not as valueable but definitly worth a buy. It is unfortunate that this series will die with no second chance as the company went bankrupt (Even though they sold the best Star Wars Games). While this game dies we recieved the very disappointing Star Wars Battlefront EA which was a complete waste of my money. I would rather buy Battlefront 2 again for $60.

Actually, it is sad to see how this incredible game keeps crashing on my computer.
I used to own a solid copy of the game, until I had some issues and sold it. It ran perfectly.

Now I had the chance to own it, again, but sadly, (after I tried everything) I can't make it work, and I'm too damn stubborn to give up easily, I really tried.

It has compatibility issues with windows 10, so if you want to buy this awesome game, I'd recommend it, but try not to if you have windows 10, it's a roulette if you can fix it or not.

Battlefront 2 in my opion is as much of a classic as the orginal game was.
It is one of the few games that makes you want to play singleplayer despite the fact the mulitplayer servers were shut down.
It also makes the prequels look good.

Pros
- Extremly fun instant action
- Force lighting and lightsabers
- Space Battles
- Galactic Conquest
- Tanks
- Its Star Wars

Cons
- Campaign is pretty weak
- Maps are a bit smaller compared to 1st game.

I must say it's a bit disappointing. The graphics are a bit crap. Come on EA, you can do better than this. The first Battlefront game which was released only a few months ago looks way better, it looks incredible in fact. This just looks like some old PS2 game from the early 2000's. It's like they were just rushed this into production following the success of The Force Awakens. At least they did away with Origin though for this one.

Although they slacked in the graphics department, there is a single player campaign this time which is a huge step forward actual space battles and lots more heroes and characters to choose from, including some planets and factions from the Prequels. They missed a trick by not including any characters from The Force Awakens, and Greedo and Nien Nunb are conspicuous in their absence.

All in all, a bit disappointing. If they had took their time to work on the graphics a bit and the online aspect then EA might have been on to a winner. I mean it's only been a few months since the first Battlefront game came out, and they're still adding DLC to that as we speak. I'm sure we could have waited a bit longer for the sequel. However, it's worth checking out.

WHY THIS GAME IS BETTER THAN BATTLEFRONT EA:
-Space Battles
-Better Conquest
-SOOOO MANY VILLAINS AND HEROES TO PLAY AS
-Assault
-Hunt
-XL
-Clone Wars + Galactic Civil War
-NO DLC
-Space Assault (SO GOOD)
-More than 20 amazing maps
-Mos Eisley Assault (Heroes vs Villains)

WHY BATTLEFRONT EA IS BETTER THAN THIS:
-Beautiful graphics
-More variety of Game Modes
-Better Weapon Selection
-Character Customization
-OFFICIAL Online Servers
-Better Hero & Villain Balance
-CAN DRIVE EVERY SHIP ON PRETTY MUCH EVERY MAP (minus the Millenium Falcon and the Slave-1)
-Different map variants (Ex. Hoth has the Ice Caves as well as the Echo Base)
-Better overall spawn system
-The Millenium Falcon and the Slave-1 CAN BE DRIVEN IF YOU'RE GOOD ENOUGH


I absolutely hate how everyone judges Battlefront EA. I love it, however just like the movie prequels (Episodes 1-3,) it can't be compared with it's predecessors. Battlefront EA is amazing, however nothing beats Battlefront 1 & 2.

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!
