In epic multiplayer battles, players pilot a First Order TIE fighter through intense dogfights in space, and play as ground troopers or iconic heroes and villains, such as Yoda and Darth Maul, across all three Star Wars eras. Featuring new characters created by Motive in close partnership with the story group at Lucasfilm, the Star Wars Battlefront II single player campaign delivers a new story to the Star Wars universe. Taking place in the 30 years between the destruction of Death Star II and through the rise of the First Order, the single player story introduces Iden Versio, the leader of Inferno Squad, an elite special forces unit of the Galactic Empire, who are equally lethal on the ground and in space. In addition to Iden, players also encounter and play as other iconic Star Wars heroes and villains like Luke Skywalker and Kylo Ren during the campaign. [Electronic Arts] Expand

    DICE, Criterion and Motive join forces to give us a game worthy of the Force. They have learned their lesson and, this time, we have the Star Wars game we all deserve, with enough variety and a lot of content for every kind of player.

    A great sequel to the 2015 game. Star Wars: Battlefront II feels like a complete product, but the loot box thing surely is going to cause bad reactions.

    Star Wars Battlefront II is full of fan-service and it's a very solid videogame too, whose main issues are a series of monetary-driven bad design decisions. Even so it's still one of this year's strongest titles.

    It’s hard not to feel like Star Wars Battlefront II should’ve been better than what it is. While some like to think that the implementation of loot crates is a worse crime than that of killing younglings, in reality it just proves to be uninteresting and makes it more likely for me to bounce off of the multiplayer sooner rather than later. The real disappointment falls upon that of the campaign which I clearly had too much hope for. It’s not a story that I would say I hate more than sand, but it also isn’t memorable at all.

    I am passionate about the Star Wars product and want it to be a great experience top to bottom, so don’t get the wrong idea with my criticisms. I very much like Battlefront 2, it improves on everything from 2015’s game, but it still definitely needs work. Over time this could become the definitive Star Wars multiplayer experience but it’s not there yet; content over the next six to twelve months will be key and how EA treats consumers will also be important on the success of this game. The bigger question I have is; will all these problems at launch doom the title before it really gets going. As DLC was released for 2015’s Battlefront, I saw less and less people playing and had a much harder time getting into match ups. Hopefully that isn’t the case here and we can see this community thrive off what is really a great game that just stumbled out of hyperspace.

    Despite the removal of the microtransactions, player progression is still largely tied to the randomized loot boxes--mitigating player agency and choice in multiplayer.

    The game is notoriously stingy about letting players play with the people they want, as the characters they most desire. But giving EA your credit card number has never been easier.

    DICE gave us much more better game with so much content and this is the gratitude

Se podría decir que se volvió odioso el tener que pagar todo para poder desbloquear todo.
    Hoy en día, disfruto mucho el juego, ya que eliminaron casi en su totalidad, las micro transacciones. Me gusta mucho los diseños de los personajes, ya que son exactamente iguales al de las películas (excepto Harrison Ford como Han Solo), también las subidas de niveles de los personajes es entretenido y puedes introducirles multiplicadores para que sean un poco más fuertes.
    La historia no me gustó para nada, la introducción del personaje Iden Versio, fue completamente innecesaria, me hubiera conformado con que sea solo multijugador como Overwatch. El multijugador es completamente entretenido y lo disfrutas demasiado (por lo menos en mi caso), puedes elegir entre las facciones que fueron apareciendo a lo largo de las películas desde los separatistas hasta la primera orden, tiene modo cooperativo para jugar con tus amigos.
    El ganar experiencia y subir de nivel es, relativamente, fácil pero el ganar dinero, para comprarle accesorios a tus héroes, puede ser complicado pero posible.
    Disfrute mucho el multijugador más que la historia, por lo que recomiendo jugarlo en algún momento y, si no eres fan de Star Wars o no lo conoces, este definitivamente sería una buena introducción a su universo.

    The campaign is a 4 hour cliche run in and clear wave after wave **** with the odd cut scene that has facial animations that are as bad as Mass Effect 4.
    1/10 because the game at least looks good.

    Contempt reciprocated, EA.

    Maybe spend some money next time on -

    - the 3rd person character animations - boy it looks awkward having luke sprinting around with a lightsaber, Han pointing a blaster constantly at everything with his never-tiring-hand
    - Co-op splitscreen, in every mode, on every device (yes, PC)
    - Consistently good writing & voice acting for campaign
    - earning back trust - eg. free content that's good and isn't cynically bait for yet more monetisation

Now they add a system that will take you a couple years to grind out all the loot boxes and cards you need. Don't buy this.

    P.S: DO NOT BUY THIS.
