    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 reveals to be a very immediate and accessible multiplayer game, capable of excite both casual and hardcore gamers thanks also to a great visual fidelity to the Star Wars environments.

    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.

    Mediocre is the key word with battlefront. The graphics and presentation are top notch but the game play is a major let down.

    Mediocre is the key word with battlefront. The graphics and presentation are top notch but the game play is a major let down.

    Flying feels nothing like being in a plane let a lone a space ship. Just feels terrible and every ship feels the same. Having different manoeuvres be a button push is stupid as well.

    The game is like a second rate version of COD with star wars skins instead of being a battlefield style tactical game like it should be.

    The graphics in this game are absolutely amazing but that is about all the compliments I have for this game. It feels just like an EA game,The graphics in this game are absolutely amazing but that is about all the compliments I have for this game. It feels just like an EA game, devoid of any actual connection with the player. It also feels like a really good proof of concept since there are very little features in the game itself. It has very little customization and what it does have is stupid, very few of the weapons are actually useful (again it has very little of them), which all makes the game modes seem bland. It would have been AMAZING if they had a single player campaign as well given the graphics but there is no sign that was even an idea they had.

    This game feels incomplete and has very little resemblance to the original battlefronts. I only hope the DLC can fix some of this but I doubt it.

    It's pretty terrible. But the fun type of terrible. It's obviously tailored for the new SW movie.

    I'd definitely recommend to buy this game
    It's pretty terrible. But the fun type of terrible. It's obviously tailored for the new SW movie.

    I'd definitely recommend to buy this game in 3-4 years when it will be dirt cheap as it does a pretty good job at playing one long session. Just one though, the comical aspects of this game just make it really difficult for people to stay serious about it.

    It's a game based on a old generations classic that tragically was built for kids.

    Ultimately, the kids will love it, star wars fans will try to love it but those who bought the game hoping it would become a good alternative to bfh and bf4, naaah. No way

    Crushed my dreams. I loved the old battlefront games, battlefront 2 was actually my first game I ever played in my life. I got this game forCrushed my dreams. I loved the old battlefront games, battlefront 2 was actually my first game I ever played in my life. I got this game for christmas for my pc, but it didn't work because my pc was powerful enough. However, many months later, I got to play it with my second cousin on his xbox. The first 5 minutes were fun, and then it crapped everywhere. No clonewars, no canpaign, no classes, no gamemodes from the old games, 95% the guns are auto fire, dlc is overpriced as hell and sucks, it feels and is a battlefield game (it uses the exact same engien), only 4 maps, and the multiplayer is broken as hell. This is yet another failer by dice and ea. Expand
