    Star Wars Battlefront might not be terribly considerate of solo players and its by-design accessibility might deter DICE’s hardcore Battlefield fans, but there’s no denying the multiplayer is a hell of a lot of fun, and as far as creating the feeling of being part of a Star Wars movie, it doesn’t get any better than this.

    A brilliant Star Wars experience, but with limited life-span and little depth. [Christmas 2015, p.76]

    As Star Wars fever builds ahead of The Force Awakens, Battlefront's brand of accessible multiplayer mayhem is definitely going to make a lot of people happy this Christmas. Sure, it could do with a campaign and sometimes it's a bit too shallow for its own good, but Battlefront is also one of the most authentic Star Wars experiences you can have outside of kissing your sister - "for luck" - and scrapping with your dad.

    Star Wars: Battlefront has great potential, but its lack of content certainly lowers the experience. Fans might forgive this but we know that at least for now the game is still just a demo.

    Star Wars Battlefront is a good Star Wars game, but an average multiplayer shooter. If you have any love for a galaxy far, far away, you'll get a real kick out of the taking part in its fun, large scale battles, and your reverence for the source material may even be enough to keep you coming back despite its shortcomings. If, on the other hand, you're after the next big shooter to keep you occupied longer term, the limited weaponry and simplified customisation mean that this isn't the game that you're looking for.

    Right now, it’s bigger than life, feels good while you're enjoying it, but is somewhat disappointingly hollow.

    With five tutorial missions, nine multiplayer game types and two single player modes, spread across 12 maps, Battlefront feels massive yet most of its modes wind up feeling like chores.

    Overall i found Star Wars Battlefront to be a very fun game the only thing that i found disappointing was the lack of content and things toOverall i found Star Wars Battlefront to be a very fun game the only thing that i found disappointing was the lack of content and things to do. The game does great job of making you feel like you are in a real battle especially in multiplayer modes such as supremacy and walker assault. If you are looking for a good single player game to play offline this one should be skipped. The lack content really hits the game the hardest here only offering a fun survival mode that will have you fending off waves of enemies. Survival entertain you for the first handful of times you play it. The other notable offline mode is battles similar to survival being that it does not have much replay value. Battles is a mode similar to kill confirmed in the Call of Duty games. Star Wars Battlefront is one of the better multiplayer with one of the best looking games that is out there but once you run out of things to do there isn't much reason to keep playing it. Finally Star Wars Battlefront is a good game that i enjoy 7.5/10

    This game has the foundation to be the Battlefront game we expected, but falls flat when it comes to the actual amount of gameplay you canThis game has the foundation to be the Battlefront game we expected, but falls flat when it comes to the actual amount of gameplay you can sink into it. The game just doesn't have enough content to have been sold at full price-you'd expect the same amount of content for a beta not a finished game. Expand

    Star Wars, no merece que una saga tan ASOMBROSA sea tratada de esta forma, despreciada asi, que EA (La peor compañia de todas) trate asi aStar Wars, no merece que una saga tan ASOMBROSA sea tratada de esta forma, despreciada asi, que EA (La peor compañia de todas) trate asi a Star Wars.
    Fui asi como muchos engañado, pensando que este iba a ser un reboot despues de aquella maravilla de Battlefront para PS2, y PC, no señores, fue un timo, por parte de EA, un juego unicamente multijugador, desbalanceado, poco contenido, bueno yo me lo compre en su version complete o deluxe por $125, sin siquiera en ese contenido de pago poder disfrutar las guerra clon, sin siquiera poder ver a Yoda.
    NO VALE LA PENA ni regalado, yo al pagar esa cantidad tuve que jugar, inverti mas de 80 horas en este titulo, y por mas que jugue siempre me quede con ese sabor amargo en la boca, de un timo tremendo.
    Historia 0/0 (No hay historia.)
    Banda Sonora 10/10 y es que DICE LO SABE HACER.
    Graficamente: 10/10 EXCELENTE, UN MOTOR GRAFICO DELICIOSO Y MAS EN CONSOLA.

    Es una lastima, un juego que destaque por sus graficos y banda sonora, y nada en apartado jugable, nada en historia, nada algo que pudo ser y nunca fue.
    Saludos.

I'm so happy I didn't buy it. I played the game while over at a friend's to finally see what it was like. Nothing like the old BF games. God this was the worst thing ever. It killed me man. No story mode, no real command posts it seems either? I only played the tutorial flying mission, which had the crappiest controls,a ""hero"" battle on Hoth with me as Luke and my friend as Vader?? What the frick is that? GAH. And in the regular battle mode you only have one base character and the builds don't even correspond to the personnel it seems and you can't even be a hero in regular battle. AND you can't be on the same team. Recalling older BF games there were several game modes and the fields were way more expansive than what I played on split screen with my friend. i didn't get a chance to try the online multiplayer, but I'll say this- I am not going to purchase this game or any DLC until like a year from now and its a used/pre-owned one, cause Lord knows there'll be a ton of them by this time next year.
