Star Wars: Battlefront User Reviews

7.6

The force in this game, it is strong...

The good:

- A wide range of maps to play on, most of which are very impressive and unique
- A range of classes to play as in battle, and 4 different teams
- Good weapons for each class, and turrets, tanks and fighter ships to use
- Very nice graphics, with good detail
- Split screen and Online play is an enjoyable option
- You can get very involved in the battles, as you fight alongside your army
- Re-enact your favourite battles from the movies in the Historical Campaign mode (And see cut scenes from the movies)

The bad:

- No battles in space
- You can only run at one speed
- Jedi are not playable characters
- The Historical Campaign is too short

Summary:

Star Wars Battlefront is the first of its kind in Star Wars video games. It mainly focuses on the troops from the CIS(Droids), Galactic Republic, Rebels and Galactic Empire, instead of the Jedi as main characters. This style of play is a dream come true for Star Wars game fans who were looking for a change, Star Wars Battlefront definitely delivers.

Not including Online mode, there are three different modes to play on as a single player, or on split screen with a friend. These are: Instant Action, Galactic Conquest and Historical Campaign. In Instant Action, you select the maps you wish to p...

Star Wars Battlefront: A review

The good:

A large variety of planets
Huge landscapes
Great attention to detail
Variety of species
Lots of weapons
Lots of vehicles

The bad:

Jedis are impossible to kill
Gungans are irritating when fighting alongside them in battle
Just Basic soldiers
No space battles
A lot of death and respawning involved

Summary:

In a nutshell, this is easily one of the two best Star Wars games (The other being Lego Star Wars). As soon as you start a level, you get the instant Star Wars look. All 4 armies are there (Rebels, Empire, Republic, Trade Federation), the large choice of planets (Kamino, Naboo, Yavin 4 etc.) and lots of veichles. But we've been burnt before, is it a proper Star Wars game? Yes, this game has the large landscape and proportion that is similar to the Star Wars world. The large armies that cover an entire battlefield (including veichles). It's a game that the Star Wars fan craves for. When you ...

Battlefront Review

The good:

-You actually feel like you are in a battle.
-Way above average gameplay.
-Many different ways to win the battles.
-Many different single and multiplayer game modes.
-Tons of different units to choose from.
-Tons of vehicles for use.

The bad:

-The music gets a little annoying after a while.
-Jedi are way to powerful.
-Sometimes battles feel like a coin toss decides the outcome.
-You can lose even if you have some men still fighting.
-Not enough space to successfully use starships.
-No space battles.

Summary:

This review, I feel, is going to be slightly biased because I have just seen the screens and previews for Battlefront II (which is going to completely dominate the original) so I may go a little hard on it. Firstly, this game retails now for around twenty bucks, less if it's used. It is absolutely worth it. As you begin playing the game you may think that there isn't a lot of strategy involved and that you'll never win the battles. Give it some time, this game has a very long learning curve, it is extremely hard to master. The strategy it takes to overthrow some of the one sided battle...

Good But Could Be Better

The good:

Best Star Wars video game ever released. The graphics are pretty good and the gameplay is very addictive. Plenty of vehicles and fighters to choose from and a fun shooting game. Capturing command posts is fun especially when against a mate or someone and shooting Gunguns is always fun!!

The bad:

Probably could have a better Stroy Mode as it was too short. Team and enemy AI is shockingly bad and they don't follow orders well enough and it seems they just get bored of fighting. Blast radius could be improved on a few projectile guns e.g Mortar Launcher. Fighters can't do rolls or stunts which doesn't feel as good.

Summary:

You can play this game for ever it's so addictive and going into Hoth with an AT-AT is great fun. It's fun to play and the graphics look alright for a PS2 game and offline there's not much lag to put up with. The Galactic Conquest is fun when playing against a friend on it and can seem to last ages if you're both doing well.

The bad points are that the AI is very unintelligent and when asked to follow orders they do so for about a minute but then run off. The Historical Campaign could be much longer, harder and a bit more like a story mode. Also projectile guns don't have the type of Blast ...

Good 'Temporary' Fun

The good:

- Mindless Violence! =D
- Not your typical 'Shooting' game.
- Scenes from actual Star Wars movies
- Explosions!
- Piloting vehicles is great fun

The bad:

- After a while this game will really become a bore.
- Kind of pointless, no real meaning to what you are doing...

Summary:

Luckily, I merely rented this game. If you have played the game lots or own it, you should understand why this is 'lucky'. You see, this is a good game I admit. With intense battlescenes and tons of weaponry and vehicles to use based on the Star Wars franchise. But, after a while this game really does get tiring. It's a very easy game, and there isnt much to do other than Historical battles. If you are playing this multi-player then it is a bit more fun, but on your own... it isn't so good.

In all fairness though, you should give this game a chance, especially if you are a big Star Wars fan....
