  • Summary: Star Wars Battlefront II improves upon the original game's single-player experience with open-ended, mission-based objectives inspired from all six Star Wars films. The compelling storyline spans more than 12 new locations, many from Episode III, including volcanic Mustafar and the spaceStar Wars Battlefront II improves upon the original game's single-player experience with open-ended, mission-based objectives inspired from all six Star Wars films. The compelling storyline spans more than 12 new locations, many from Episode III, including volcanic Mustafar and the space battle above Coruscant. All-new classic movie moments complete the Star Wars Battlefront II experience, as players battle within the interior of the Death Star and visit Princess Leia’s blockade runner, the Tantive IV, as seen at the beginning of Episode IV A New Hope. In addition, at certain key moments within the battles, players can feel the Force as a Jedi. For the first time ever, Star Wars Battlefront II players can engage in space combat and, during the same battle, board enemy ships to attack from within. Starting on foot inside a capital ship, players can enter the spacecraft of their choice and travel into space to dogfight with the rival faction. From there, they can dock within the enemy’s capital ship, overtake the ship’s command posts, man its turrets to disable its shields and destroy it from within! Or, they can simply stay inside their own capital ship and defend it from attacks and enemy fire. The choice is theirs. The stellar online play that marked the original Star Wars Battlefront returns even bigger and better for Star Wars Battlefront II. Players can locate their buddies and track their stats as they battle alongside more players than ever (up to 24 on PS2, 32 on Xbox, 64 on Windows). [LucasArts] Expand

Star Wars: Battlefront II Official Movie 9
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 29 out of 30
  2. Negative: 0 out of 30
  1. This is without a doubt the best Star Wars game ever created.
  2. With gameplay nearly identical to its predecessor, Battlefront II takes every aspect of the original Battlefront and runs with it.
  3. The signature piece of Battlefront II is the ship-to-ship combat... This element makes Battlefront II feel much more like the complete Star Wars experience. [Dec 2005, p.108]
  4. An extended (and actual) single-player campaign that'll keep you busy for days while taking you on a tour of a galaxy far, far away helps balance out an uneven online experience that's amazing when it's good.
  5. As with the last Battlefront, I still feel like I'm controlling cheap plastic toys rather than real soldiers, tanks, or spaceships. Everything looks and feels so insubstantial, with no tangible weight or physics.

    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]
  7. 70
    And so more than its predecessor, the faults and quirks of Battlefront II stand out and become glaring because the new adds feel unpolished while the old gripes manage to rear their heads for a second time.

    mmmm por donde puedo comenzar no se la verdad , en 2009 me regalaron la ps2, con el tiempo un familiar mio me paso este juego (pero pirata XD)mmmm por donde puedo comenzar no se la verdad , en 2009 me regalaron la ps2, con el tiempo un familiar mio me paso este juego (pero pirata XD) lo puse en la consola y la pantalla de inicio con la música clásica de star wars . pero al principio pensaba que me iba a encontrar con una mie de juego aunque no fue así , mi primera partida fue algo pésima a mi corta edad no sabia que era un fps ( que todos sabemos es un juego de disparos) ese dia fue especial ya que jugue toda la tarde mi primer vicio frente a un televisor . al pasar los días me metí al modo "conquista galáctica" muy sencillo de comprender como funcionaba las clases se desbloqueaban al tener mas dinero , varios beneficios que se podían comprar como sabotaje , también las naves nodrizas , me pase ese modo muchas veces con las 4 facciones que todos conocen . una de las cosas que mas me llamaban la atención era el modo de las batallas espaciales de los cruceros estelares . usar las naves es algo fantástico . sus controles no son del otro mundo de complejo las naves se manejan de forma fluida y cuando combates con otra nave parece una verdadera danza . cada nave tiene algo único, unas mas rápidas que otras , mas poderosas y resistentes etc. existe un mapa que puedes jugar como heruoe o villano , según mi opinión de este mapa fue la mejor idea que se les pudo ocurrir pero lo único malo que en este mapa los herues siempre ganan XD , una ves use a dark maul y solamente usando a el pude ganar jajjaa. un modo campaña excepcional la historia de la 501 una verdadera maravilla con todos sus eventos únicos . aunque habían
    etapas de la historia que era casi imposible pasar , pero con paciencia se podía pasar . tiene muchos mapas y variados aunque el favorito de todos seria hot ( mi opinión del mejor mapa) . al pasar el año al jugarlo tuve que usar lentes jejejej por mi vicio . otros puntos positivos de este juego son las diversas clases , unidades especiales ( que son las mas poderosas creo que tienen menos vida que le mismo francotirador) . los vehículos muy bn echos los gráficos buenisimos mucho mas logrados que su primera entrega la música clásica del juego en ps2 modo cooperativo muy bn logrado . excelentes mapas . un punto negativo que los cruceros no se mueven están intactos. que mas decir de esta obra maestra de los videojuegos , mi memory car de 8mg se lleno de saves de solo ese juego . para los creadores del juego les doy gracias por darme una excelente infancia :3

    this is an amazing game and i have had it since the day it came out which was almost 6 years ago and i still play it to this day because it isthis is an amazing game and i have had it since the day it came out which was almost 6 years ago and i still play it to this day because it is so good. this game is so much better than the original with the ability to run and being able to play as a jedi instead of having an invincible one that you cant play as and they also added space battles which i was never any good at but again i never flew around in the one before it. this game does not have a very long story but the story is just the begining when it comes to the replay value on this game you can play instant action on any map you want and have a small battle with a small amout of troops or have a full scale battle that will last about 30 mins with almost 1000 troops that need to be killed. there is also galactic conquest which you can be any of the factions that you want and you must conquer the galaxy and you must purchase each unit and power up with the credits you win from battles and each has thier own cinimatic ending once you own and conquer all the planets. there is even a mode where you can play as good V.S evil and have the good heroes face off against the evil villains in a fight to the death and as if that wasnt enough the game rewards you for being good at it with special upgraded weapons and power ups that eventually become permanent with enough experiance. everything about this game is amazing and is a must buy especially now that you can pick this game up at an EB Games for under $5 so what are you waiting for go out and get it asap Expand

    I t is a very cool game, finally there is a game where you get to be any jedi, one downside though is that they forgot to put cloud city in I t is a very cool game, finally there is a game where you get to be any jedi, one downside though is that they forgot to put cloud city in the game. Also I dont like the fact that you have to earn points to unlock most of the really cool clone troopers, such as the clone with the jetpack. I also wish that yoda could do the saber throw. Also the jedi mostly, Anakin Skywalker he looks shorter and fatter than he really is, I think that OBI Wan's hair is a lot shorter than it is supposed to be.Also Grevious cant permanentaly have 4 sabers, which kind of sucks.

    Star Wars: Battlefront II has the single greatest replayability of any game ever made. Period. I have spent at least 50 hours on this game andStar Wars: Battlefront II has the single greatest replayability of any game ever made. Period. I have spent at least 50 hours on this game and am looking forward to 50 more. The only slight negative aspect is that, yes, the graphics are worse than I, but you will not even notice when your having this much fun. Expand
