  1. This is the game we have wanted to play since we got caught setting fire to teddy bears in 1984...An excellent multiplayer combat game, a tremendous Star Wars Experience.
  2. A visually stunning game that will keep many Star Wars fans happy for many hours. My biggest complaint is that once you’re not in the various crafts the game can be a little boring and you find yourself dreaming the AT-ATS.
  3. If you’re buying the game for its single player campaign, you’re making a big mistake. Battlefront falls apart when it comes to the single player game but doesn’t fail in bringing the online multiplayer action we’ve been dying for ever LucasArts started designing Star Wars games.
  4. The various combatants are well-balanced and there is a huge variety of vehicles and aircraft to pilot, including X-wings, TIE fighters, speeder bikes and hulking AT-STs.
  5. It's Star Wars with a proven and well-executed game concept. And if that's not enough to persuade you, you're able to murder Ewoks. Enjoy.
  6. An intense blast of pure Star Wars.
  7. There are better shooters around, but if you’ve long hankered for vehicular Star Wars mayhem, Battlefront was made for you.

    So many games fail to achieve the successive stories of the movies they are based upon. The feel for the realism just isn't for gaming. StarSo many games fail to achieve the successive stories of the movies they are based upon. The feel for the realism just isn't for gaming. Star Wars: Battlefront does the impossible by supplying the player(s) with the most intensive and a truly lifelike feel towards whichever side you're on as you try and stop the invading team from taking over. What this game does that no other can do, when given an opportunity to do so, is how it forces the player to think strategy and how your specific character is useful for. Although there are some difficult and what would appear to 'wonky' controls, (think vehicular combat in this game), it still makes up in the impressive ground battle and the surprisingly eventful air battles. It helps that the scenery is dead on; as if it was literally pulled from any movie clip. This game is to Star Wars enthusiasts as oxygen is for survival. It's a no brainer that this game series is still in the works and might be for years to come. Expand

    One of my favourite games of all time, but I want to review number 2 now so i'll quickly tell you why. You aren't a jedi, killing a jediOne of my favourite games of all time, but I want to review number 2 now so i'll quickly tell you why. You aren't a jedi, killing a jedi however makes you feel like the worlds biggest badass. It has spaceships on ground which number 2 didn't have as it made it too easy to just bomb everywhere. You control an army on the best places in the universe. Its just perfect ok? Expand
