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.

This game may be 9 years old but is still worth picking up! As of July 2014 Multi-player was removed from this title but the singleplayer still provides hours of entertainment. What Battlefront 2 lacks behind in graphics it makes up with stunning gameplay. There is a variety of singleplayer gamemodes such as Instant Action, Campaign Mode and Galactic Conquest. Galactic Conquest is by far my favourite with it being much like a Star Wars edition of risk in where you command your space fleet across the galaxy defeating your opponent in both space battles and invading or defending a planet from a wave of attacks. However the campaign of this game is very short, easy and not the most entertaining with it only being about 2 hours long at most.

One of the best features about game is the ability to control your factions heroes from Mace Windu to Han Solo to Darth Vader. You can help your teammates on the battlefield (Droids, Stormtroopers, Rebels etc.) defeat their enemy with the power of a lightsaber or a scoundrel like Han (Who shot first!)

The only bad thing about this game is the lack of multiplayer, the graphics of this game are not the greatest but the game is still perfectly playable and will still provide hours of entertainment.

In conclusion this game is worth the £6.99 (Time of Review Price) and any Star Wars fan should pick this game up!

i've had starwars battlefront games from the start back on the PS2 and PSP and by far the best is BF2 for the PC. Check out moddb for some great mods as it bring out the best in this game.

Best game evar!!1!!111!!!oneoneone!!1

Being serious, Make sure you have a head set to plug in so you can play the full game. For some odd reason the game doesn't work otherwise and if it does you just happen to be the luckiest person alive so far. The game is old but it's a goodie. Enough said.

A synthesized battle droid voice comes over into your ears.
Enemy units detected inside the command craft.

Seconds later, the CIS battlecruiser bursts into chunks, wisps of fire dying in the vacuum of space as sunlight crests the nearby Republic planet.

You chuckle and a "Victory" readout appears before you.

And that's just a moment in Battlefront 2.

- - -

While Star Wars Battlefront 2 is, y'know, ancient at this point, it is still a beauty in gaming and the serious nostalgia trip for so many of us. I, being a late-comer to gaming and Battlefront 2 being one of the earlier console games I played (along with GUN and I believe Flatout), can quickly say that this game is gorgeous and sold the industry to me.

It's massive, it's immersive, it's quick-to-play, and it's Star Wars! Who doesn't like Star Wars? Well, plenty of people, but... hey, you can't dislike the adorable Stormtroopers.

You've got all the stuff other shooting games do. Guns, people to shoot guns, and some extra things like vehicles. Then there's the space battles, which make an entirely different challenge and one of the most glorious flying experiences in gaming, and then you've got the tactical 'Conquest' part where you put around a giant fleet of spacecraft for your favorite faction in the Star Wars movies.

Rebels, Empire/Republic, CIS: You can play as any of them, which is great fun. Each have their own soldiers and classes, allowing different experiences for every team. It's especially cool to roll around as a droideka, then unfurl and be destroyed by a Jedi. At least you're the envy of your friends.

The battles themselves are manic and titanic. Hoth a devoid planet? Not when you're in the middle of a 100+ person skirmish between Rebels and Imperials. AT-AT action is amazing, until you're taken down by some jerk in a cheap snowspeeder. Maybe it was SKYWALKER?

No.

There's also that option to play as a Jedi or Sith or melodramatic bounty hunter popping up every now-and-then, but they're lame and die too quickly. I don't suggest them. Well, MBH is alright, but who wants to get eaten by a sandpit monster?

There's the few issues, like absurdly dumb AI and logical errors (downwards gravity in space?), but they're far and few compared to the joy this game brings.

I couldn't recommend this enough. And it's only 10 bucks USD!

Similar review to that of Star Wars Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast, I played this game plenty prior to it's Steam release both on PC and PSP, and during it's original release, it WAS what you did. You got home after school, YOU PLAYED THE GAME. There was no way around it. Something about these Star Wars games, I've played them all before they were on Steam.

10/10, the reason it took so long to make the new Battlefront game due 2015, is probably because they couldn't improve upon the first one...... ;)
