    More of the same which sometimes can be a good thing but not enough of the new to compensate for poor A.I. and boring campaign.

    This is the worst game I have ever played. The space fighting is pretty fun. However, fighting as a character on land is horrible, herky-jerky, and just plain boring. Not to mention you will die 1000 times before completing some missions. You also cannot save any progress at your discretion and have to start nearly impossible levels over when you die. I wish I could go back in time and This is the worst game I have ever played. The space fighting is pretty fun.

A truly horrible and frustrating experience. Those that liek the game are just way too into the Star Wars thing and are blinded by its name. Expand

    Very average game. Not in any way beter than the first installment of the series which was cool gung-ho action which encouraged tactics as well. Does the new game have better graphics? Yes. Better gameplay? No (better flying missions though). Repetitive? You bet. Stupid A.I. as well. Absolutely no point to the game as you feel the missions are very dull and the storytelling so stupid Very average game.

In the mold of other sequels like PGR2, Halo2 and so forth - "bigger, prettier, duller". Expand

    Compared to the first one, this game seemed like a step down. The space battles were fun and interesting (they're the only thing keeping me from rating this lower). The gameplay doesn't seem to flow like the first one and the "improvements" are horrible. I'm ashamed at myself for buying this one.

    Theres nothing quite like gunning down entire platoons of clones, droids, imperial troops and rebels on one side of the map...while the pathetic AI squanders all of your reinforcements on the other side. A game in which your actions dont matter, and where the balance between victory and defeat is more luck than skill.

    I was so jacked for this game. Glad I rented it before I bought it. The graphics seem so flat as compared to the first one. The AI is absolutely retarded. This is the most disappointing part. I remember the first game felt like I was in combat, breaking through lines of droids, helping out fellow clones then dying as we charged the turrents. Now I can walk with the flag across the field, I was so jacked for this game. Glad I rented it before I bought it. The graphics seem so flat as compared to the first one.

Now I can walk with the flag across the field, stop for coffee, and empty the waste recepticle before any AI knows I'm gone. Completely disappointing, so much that I'm not buying it. Such a bummer.

  1. Great fun but far from perfect, mainly due to a handful of little niggles.
  2. A fun romp that stays interesting no matter how you play it. It has its share of flaws, but for fans, this is the first Star Wars game to have it all.
  3. Take away the costumes and the lasers and you've still got an excellent example of how to produce multiplayer bedlam. [Dec 2005, p.110]
