    Battlefront´s impressive fidelity to the Star Wars universe, and one of the best technical aspects we´ve seen in any game, are not enough to make us forget it lacks of solo campaign, and 12 maps are too few. The experience is great, but it's too short.

    Star Wars Battlefront its full of heroic moments and has stunning visuals and legendary OST. It could be too simple in terms of gunplay, but it's great building a frantic Star Wars universe.

    The game is gorgeous, authentic, highly detailed, and rife with potential to grow into something much bigger.

    Battlefront doesn't go much deeper than its ambitious surface appeal. It front loads its best content, only to fade in quality as the hours roll by. Star Wars Battlefront's skin is beautiful, but its legs are shaking, and threaten to buckle with time.

    As close as you'll get to getting your childhood back. Dig through the incredible production values and you'll find a serviceable shooter, but one with a potentially terminal lack of content. [Jan 2016, p.73]

    Star Wars Battlefront is a solid proof-of-concept that should be fully realized in an inevitable sequel. Like Evolve, Titanfall and The Order: 1886 before it, Battlefront chooses style over substance. It’s absolutely beautiful and captures what it’s like to be in a Star Wars film, but style can only take a game so far.

They DO have some valid points, but they are NOT game breaking. Yes, Star Wars has a massive market, and they are going to MILK IT HARD. That is just the way it works in a capitalist society, so deal with it .

    Now, if you love Star Wars, or any form of FPS/TPS shooters, you will probably really really enjoy this title, especially if you have a group to play with. Yes, right now there are limited maps, but the Enormous amount of game modes change those maps and how you play them in so many ways. Yes its a cheap tactic to get more content out of the same areas, but at the same time it works well.

    The physics, sounds, and graphics are stellar. It took me into my favorite star wars moments with my best friends. The game just released, so there are some obvious problems, like balancing on maps etc, but overall I give the game 9/10. The missed point is simply for the same four maps, and lack of balance, but both of which can be fixed.

    One of the best things about the release is that you can TRY IT FOR FREE!..... So give it a whirl and see for yourself, don't trust every review, this game may or may not be for you.

    4 friggin maps and no single player campaign! Stunning graphics and sound but the content is really thin for a game with this price point. My4 friggin maps and no single player campaign! Stunning graphics and sound but the content is really thin for a game with this price point. My 12 year old is even bored with it already. This was a money grab, put the words star wars on any old pos and it will sell. I expected much more from Disney and EA. Expand

The DLC exclusive maps have very little population and DLC exclusive weapons are by far and away completely overpowered compared to base game weapons. Its almost like people who paid more were given every advantage possible. Expand
