  1. Game-play for Star Wars: Battlefront, although not quite as polished as I’d like to see it, is a gaming experience that is rivaled by few in its genre, especially when it comes to Xbox Live. There is just so much to do in this game, it’s hard to know where to start.
  2. The fluid movement of each class is wonderful including the rag doll effect when they have been shot, trampled over or blown up.

    A fantastic game, the more I play, and the more I like it. Sure there is no real single player, but the online game makes up for it.

    With the stunning visuals and audio sections of the game it’s somewhat of a treat for Xbox gamers to witness. Sadly, Battlefront is hurt greatly because of a lack of effort put into the game’s AI and overall single player production.
  5. Although there is not much substance to the single player game, it's fun for a while and hearkens back to the days when games didn't have to be too clever or in-depth. It's the online aspect that most people are going to be drawn to, which is immensely satisfying, even with the lag and communicator issues.
  6. Hopefully LucasArts will address the latency issue which would vastly improve the overall experience. As it stands if you are a fan of Star Wars you should pick this up without hesitation.
  7. The single player mode gets boring very quickly, the game's frame rate needs improvement, and it's often times difficult to communicate strategies with other players.
