    Nothing gets the gamer closer to experiencing the epic battles of Star Wars than this game.

    A supremely enjoyable online shooter. Against all odds, Battlefront II may make you forget all about that little game called "Halo 2."
  3. With plenty of maps and intriguing campaign missions, Battlefront II's replay value is already pretty high. Tack on the addictive nature of Xbox Live and we have a game that is worth every penny you dropped for it.
  4. With more playable maps, including the excellent space combat battles, and the inclusion of heroes and villains makes this a particularly satisfying Star Wars games fans will love.
  5. 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]

    With up to 32 player matches, the ability to use bots, and the incredible amount of customizable options this game will be played for a long time to come.

    Decidedly mediocre. Being able to play as a Jedi is definitely one of its strongest qualities, but it really doesn't make up for a really lackluster massive battlefield shooter.
