About This Game

With brand new space combat, playable Jedi characters, and over 16 all new battlefronts, Star Wars Battlefront II gives you more ways than ever before to play the classic Star Wars battles any way you want.
  • Enhanced Single-Player Experience - Join the rise of Darth Vader’s elite 501st Legion of Stormtroopers as you fight through an all new story-based saga where every action you take impacts the battlefront and, ultimately, the fate of the Star Wars galaxy.
  • All New Classic Trilogy Locations - Fight inside the corridors of the second Death Star, in the marshy swamps of Dagobah, and even aboard the Tantive IV, Princess Leia’s Blockade Runner, as seen at the beginning of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.
  • More Classes and Vehicles - Now choose from six distinct soldier classes, plus bonus hero characters for each of the four factions: Rebels, Imperials, CIS and the Republic. Then jump into more than 30 diverse ground and space vehicles, including the clone BARC speeder, AT-RT and new Jedi Starfighter and ARC 170.
  • PLUS Improved Online Features - Engage in massive online battles with multiplayer action for up to 64 players. Play five different online game modes including Conquest, Assault, one-and two-flag Capture the Flag, and Hunt.
Now for the first time, Star Wars Battlefront II lets you…
  • Fight as a Jedi - Earn the ability to wield a lightsaber and use Force powers like Yoda, Darth Vader and many other heroes and villains.
  • Battle in Space - Dogfight in X-wings, TIE fighters, Jedi starfighters and other classic starcraft, or land your ship on a star destroyer and fight it out on foot aboard enemy ships.

I had this game on my PS2, but since the console broke I've never been able to play it again. Well, on the 4th I was just browsing the Steam Store and I came across the sale. I immediatly sold skins on CS:GO to have money to buy the game.

Pros:
-Not made by EA.
-Has space battles.
-Campaign mode.
-Galactic Conquest.
-Etc.
-Etc.

Cons:
-The fact that this game is flawless isn't good!
Just kidding, this game is amazing and its very nice to relive my childhood memories on this game.

My all time favorite game. Sadly it doesn't run very well on modern hardware. i have a GTX 960 4GB and on some maps it struggles to keep over 40fps. I have maxed out the game but still...

EDIT: After i updated my Nvidia drivers the game ran at 80fps (Locked)

So...

Pros: More maps than the new Battlefront
More vehicles than the new Battlefront
More mods than the new Battlefront
More EVERYTHING than the new Battlefront

Cons: It's an old game, the graphics are outdated and the movement feels a bit wierd.

Still better than the new EA Battlefront

Childhood. Love. The multiplayer is a surprise (gamesradar multiplayer) because it's first person but can be enjoyed. Offline is still all the same things we know and love.

I do recommend heading over to the nexus modding website as they have a few graphics fixes such as prettier models and maps. It will change your life.

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.

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.

When EA said they were making STAR WARS Battlefront I didn't think it was going to be this good, although the graphics does seem a little outdated, the gameplay makes up for it though, and Steam quite clearly got the date release for this game wrong.

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!

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!
