    Ok maybe I missed something! Im old enough to have seen the originals at the cinema, but am not a star wars geek. This game is pathetic and to compare it to the mighty Halo is heinous crime. The outcome of battle is not effected by your actions? The battlefields are way too small too make use of the vehicles properly? When sniping you can be shot from miles away by the enemy with standard Ok maybe I missed something! Im old enough to have seen the originals at the cinema, but am not a star wars geek.

Ok so if piloting an AT-AT is your only dream in life then it may appeal but the AI is lame and it is just too easy and unrewarding. The only upside is the wonderful environments. Rent the game have a look around the maps, pilot an AT-AT, ride a Tuctuc ignore battles they will take care of themselves and then return game. Expand

  1. Star Wars Battlefront is essentially action-figure theater on the television screen, and playing online is like inviting your friends over to take part.

    Those accustomed to the adult world of online PC gaming may have reason to sniff at the more streamlined play, but Pandemic has given consoles a whole new genre, pretty much perfectly formed... No game has ever felt quite so much like playing with Star Wars figures. [Nov 2004, p.102]

    It's "Star Wars" with a proven and well-executed game concept. And if that's not enough to persuade you, you're able to murder Ewoks. Enjoy. [Nov 2004, p.120]
