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 Graphics outdated?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.

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.

Although it may have bad graphics compared to some other titles in today's gaming world...
This game is still AWSOME!
From the ease of the controlls to the range of classes, it builds up to a very enjoyable game that will only set the bar high for the third Battlefront that is hopefully coming out in connection withy the new films. (Fingers crossed)
So all in all, you should get it if only to have some good expiriance with the prequal universe...

You can have Star Wars battles on the ground at various Star Wars locations, or in space. It was fun six years ago, and it's still fun now. The AI is not very good, of course. It's not the most challenging game ever. But it is really fun.

This game is a fun, classic shooter. With easy controls and good graphics for it's time, I highly suggest it. It's campaign is pretty fun, and playing on any Star Wars planet can be fun. Chosing your class and team opens a lot of options too. It has really good space battles and dialouge. If you want to buy something and you like sc-fi or Star Wars, you might want to buy this.
