    Star Wars Battlefront might not be terribly considerate of solo players and its by-design accessibility might deter DICE’s hardcore Battlefield fans, but there’s no denying the multiplayer is a hell of a lot of fun, and as far as creating the feeling of being part of a Star Wars movie, it doesn’t get any better than this.

    A brilliant Star Wars experience, but with limited life-span and little depth. [Christmas 2015, p.76]

    As Star Wars fever builds ahead of The Force Awakens, Battlefront's brand of accessible multiplayer mayhem is definitely going to make a lot of people happy this Christmas. Sure, it could do with a campaign and sometimes it's a bit too shallow for its own good, but Battlefront is also one of the most authentic Star Wars experiences you can have outside of kissing your sister - "for luck" - and scrapping with your dad.

    Star Wars: Battlefront has great potential, but its lack of content certainly lowers the experience. Fans might forgive this but we know that at least for now the game is still just a demo.

    Star Wars Battlefront is a good Star Wars game, but an average multiplayer shooter. If you have any love for a galaxy far, far away, you'll get a real kick out of the taking part in its fun, large scale battles, and your reverence for the source material may even be enough to keep you coming back despite its shortcomings. If, on the other hand, you're after the next big shooter to keep you occupied longer term, the limited weaponry and simplified customisation mean that this isn't the game that you're looking for.

    Right now, it’s bigger than life, feels good while you're enjoying it, but is somewhat disappointingly hollow.

    With five tutorial missions, nine multiplayer game types and two single player modes, spread across 12 maps, Battlefront feels massive yet most of its modes wind up feeling like chores.

    I gave it 7. Because this game is a great shooter, you don't have to play it each day to not lost your skills with analog aiming. Aiming isI gave it 7. Because this game is a great shooter, you don't have to play it each day to not lost your skills with analog aiming. Aiming is easier not like in BF hardline or battlefield 3 or any else different games from dice or any shooters for consoles. Story mode is missing. Single player mode is here but it's terrible. You can't find partners for master difficulty because you won't probably beat master alone. There isn't any "Find Game" thing for these battles or survival missions so you will probably not complete many of them and if yes, it will be borring enough to get you out of that game. Multi-player is pretty fun but don't play it whole day or you'll get tired of this game and that day will be your last game. Play it two hours or less each day and you will still enjoy it. First expansion is just playing on expansion but it's just two maps without an update. So no first expansion is not free for everyone. Two multiplayer maps are free for everyone. What EA wouldn't do for their players for free don't they? There are just 11 weapons while the best one is the last one you get or the one you get for purchasing deluxe edition for € more while you can get it in game for free after some time. Expand

    This game isn't perfect but it comes close in certain areas and is very lacking in other areas. The graphics are beyond amazing and the soundThis game isn't perfect but it comes close in certain areas and is very lacking in other areas. The graphics are beyond amazing and the sound is unbelievable through my surround sound system but its lacking depth in parts of the game. The "campaign" is lacking in every possible area on the only reason it gets mentioned is because there is somewhat of a story.

    This game does not go beyond the title, in terms of game depth, because it is really a battlefront and heavily focuses on the various battles that are happening during the rebellion. I wish it had more of a story line but I can settle with this. I imagine the next installment will have a story based on the new trilogy.

    Graphics: 10/10

    Да не будет с вами скила!

    (StarWars: Battlefront)

    Старый-новый Battlefront явно не делался на коленке и задачу с покорением сердец фанов вселенной ЗВ выполнил на ура! Вот только те кто покупал именно ИГРУ, а не помотивщину, по сути остались не у дел. Тут нет ничего, что могло бы приобщить именно рядового геймера и сам мир SW, ведь кроме как поностальгировать игра ничего не предлагает. Вместо одиночки, испытания на скил на пару с другом? Сочная картинка, которой в пылу творящегося на мультиплеерных картах хаоса, просто некогда насладиться? Или возможность настучать (НЕ РАСКРОМСАТЬ) светящейся битой (НЕ МЕЧОМ) противникам по шапке? Я фанат SW , но ко всему прочему я ещё и геймер, который прекрасно понимает, что на одном фане далекой далёкой галактики на тысячалетнем соколе не улететь! Я рад, что SWB от DICE не имеет цифры III и огорчён, что в этом названии не присутсвует словосочетание starter pack. Но даже после всех вышедших допов, чаша весов склоняется к слову ПОМОТИВЩИНА, а не к слову игра. SWB - фановая пострелушка и не больше!

Such a missedLooks and sounds absolutely incredible - you are in Star Wars... Where you will spend a lot of time running and dying. Such a missed opportunity it is almost criminal. Lack of single player campaign and the obvious missing elements that will be offered as paid DLC is also criminal.

    Such a shame :-(

    While the game look amazing and sound amazing the gameplay is **** bad. They should just remove all blaster and rename the game to explosivesWhile the game look amazing and sound amazing the gameplay is **** bad. They should just remove all blaster and rename the game to explosives wars because that'S all you are going to do. Impact grenade, grenade pick up, homing rocket launcher that lock on infantry, **** explosive shot. I regret paying 80$ for this. The game is also full of annoying bug like the crosshair not being aligned correctly. Expand

    Star Wars: Battlefront is the latest disappontment from DICE and EA. Known for putting microtransactions and paywalls in every game theyStar Wars: Battlefront is the latest disappontment from DICE and EA. Known for putting microtransactions and paywalls in every game they publish. Battlefront doesn't take a step in a different direction.

    Battlefront features a variety of boring, dull, loud, repetitive and confusing gamemodes to play on! Let's list them all!
    Supremacy: Capture the control points
    Walker Assault: Activate stuff and damage/protect an AT-AT
    Fighter Squadron: Surprise! DICE got too lazy to program space battles so they put you in a star fighter above the Walker Assault and Supremacy maps.
    Cargo: Capture an object
    Drop Zone: Capture an object
    Droid Run: Capture an object
    Hero Hunt: Deal the most damage to a Hero in order to play as one
    Heroes Vs Villains: Defeat all the Heroes/Villains
    Turning Point: Capture the control points
    Extraction: PLEASE BUY THE SEASON PASS IN ORDER PLAY ON THIS DEAD GAMEMODE

    Battlefront also features one of the worst customization options in history!
    Male rebel with helmet
    Male rebel without helmet
    Female rebel with helmet
    Female rebel without helmet
    Male rebel with/without helmet with a beard
    Aliens (Rebels only)
    Imperial side is exactly the same

    If you want good customization, buy Uncharted 4, there you can chose from different characters, skins, hats, face wear, taunts, pre-sets outfits. Naughty Dog is also releasing more customization options (100% free). Anyways, back to the Battlefront review.

    The game is also missing:
    Singleplayer
    Galactic Conquest
    Space Battles
    Prequel content
    Content
    Balanced gameplay
    Fun non-repetitive gameplay
    And more!

    I'm not done yet! The Season Pass and DLCs costs WAY to much. Well I guess that's it.

    If you enjoy broken, boring, loud, repetitive, confusing, content lacking, unbalanced EA game, well then this game is for you! If you hate all those things then stay the hell away from this game!
