I got this to work on windows 10 by plugging in the mic. That was literally it.
I spent so many Saturday nights with this game on PS2.
WARNING:After playing this campaign, you WILL suddenly have a newfound appreciation for stormtroopers and you WILL feel sad every time you watch Star Wars and see the Death Star getting blown up.

*SPECIAL MESSAGE FOR EA*

Lord Vader finds your lack of competence...disturbing...


10/10 would "squash the scum" again.

A good old game, that takes u back to the old days where u played it on ps2. It's kind of sad that they shut down "Multiplayer". But no excuse for not playing with a second program called "GameRanger".

Over the decades so many star wars shooters/action games have come out that i have honestly lost track of all of them..really, on the whole they blur together like the identical legionaries of rome total war or slightly more accuratley the endless procession on transformers movies and in that vas ever growing ocean of same-ness, uninspired fraudulent copycats and zombified story telling there is a slightly less zomby esque gem free to embrace indviduality filled with uniqeness.

Glowing adulation aside Star Wars battlefront 2 the sucessor ((although in my opiniion sucessor in name and not much else)) to the similarly named orgional takes the lessons learned by the first game and nearly throws them out of the window, no longer does the game play like a star wars themed call of duty rip off, no longer do are you constricted to narrow missions and goals, you can play a capmiagn of which theres one for every section of major star wars lore at the time this game came out in adition to the matching scenarios for Battlefront 2's most advertised (( at the time )) galactic conquest..and thats its by the way simply saying galactic conquest sums up what you need to know about that game mode because it is literally nothing but dragging army and fleet icons around and fighting zoomed in empire at war style.

But in the end nearly no other shoooter and certainltn not a star wars shooter gives you the ability to play as a ground soildier or hero in a army assaulting a planets strongpoint, battlefron 2 will give you something however shallow at times that is uniuqe in the world of star wars shooters and still special in the world of gaming, catch it on any kin dof sale and you will be getting more than your moneys worth, buy it at full price and at least you will be getting what you paid for in full.

Star wars battlefront 2:

Amazing maps.
Cool troops and heros you can play as.
Being a Ewok and trolling stormtroopers. XD
Galactic conquest.
A working multiplayer system from start to end.
CLONES!!!
And DROIDS LOTS OF DROIDS!!!
A awsome campain.
A fun single player mode.
Good voice actors.
Very fun space battles.
And very easy and good controlls.


Star wars battlefront EA

No campain. WHY!?
You can only play as the Empire or Rebels.
No space battles.
Hard to learn vechicle controlls.
Very glitchy. (Hopfully just for now)
Can't be a Ewok. NOOOOOOOOO!!!
No galactic conquest.
Not so fun single player mode.
50% working multiplayer.
Only 6 heros and villains.
Small amount of maps.
Kind of bad audio.
And no clone wars era.

Star wars battlefront EA: 4/10 for now.

Star wars battlefront 2 9.9/10

Would scrape some droids as a clone again.

Old but gold, except for a few of the campaign missions (Coruscant, Death Star), those suck. I hear this is heavily moddable, haven't felt the need to mod it yet, but I'm gonna take a look into that none the less. I heavily reccomend this, especially if you've wasted money on the new Battlefront, and are looking for a game with an acceptible amount of real content, no copy-pastes here.

This is a truly amazing game. It has a story mode which focuses mainly on Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, an offline mode where you can have aerial battles, and a Galactic Conquest mode where you take on the opposing team and try to capture the most planets as possible. You can play as a lot of characters from the movies as well, such as Han Solo, Darth Vader, Chewbacca, and many more. All around, this is an amazing game, and I would recommend it to any Star Wars fan such as myself.

If you're here from DICE's remake (it's not a sequel) then be warned - this is quite a different game. DICE's game is discussed at the end.

Recommended? Yes.
Battlefront 2. The sequel to a game I really enjoyed, despite its flaws.
This game is not drastically different from the first. Many things were carried over.
However, for some reason I preferred Battlefront 1.
It had less in it, and every map was control points, but...I guess I liked that.
It feels like they took Battlefront 1 and said, "let's add to this", and while it's still a fun game, it just doesn't feel the same, in my opinion.
Maybe I'm just nostalgic about the first one.

In short: Would recommend this game, but I prefer the original.

A word on the DICE remake - I don't think it deserves the title of this series, it's just Battlefield with Star Wars weapons, vehicles and environments. Then again, I don't know what else I expected. The point is, the series was about a large-scale, infantry-based third-person shooter. There were enemies everywhere all the time, until you cut down enough of them. DICE didn't do that, and while their game wasn't a bad game, it wasn't a Battlefront game either.
