    Battlefront´s impressive fidelity to the Star Wars universe, and one of the best technical aspects we´ve seen in any game, are not enough to make us forget it lacks of solo campaign, and 12 maps are too few. The experience is great, but it's too short.

    Star Wars Battlefront its full of heroic moments and has stunning visuals and legendary OST. It could be too simple in terms of gunplay, but it's great building a frantic Star Wars universe.

    The game is gorgeous, authentic, highly detailed, and rife with potential to grow into something much bigger.

    Battlefront doesn't go much deeper than its ambitious surface appeal. It front loads its best content, only to fade in quality as the hours roll by. Star Wars Battlefront's skin is beautiful, but its legs are shaking, and threaten to buckle with time.

    As close as you'll get to getting your childhood back. Dig through the incredible production values and you'll find a serviceable shooter, but one with a potentially terminal lack of content. [Jan 2016, p.73]

    Star Wars Battlefront is a solid proof-of-concept that should be fully realized in an inevitable sequel. Like Evolve, Titanfall and The Order: 1886 before it, Battlefront chooses style over substance. It’s absolutely beautiful and captures what it’s like to be in a Star Wars film, but style can only take a game so far.

Some of the lower reviews are a product of the game receiving way to much hype. As far as the game play goes, you really can't compare it to the older battlefront games, or the current battlefield games, as they are completely different from one another. I didn't give it a 10 because in the 15 or so hours i have played it have ran into a couple of bugs, and the hero game play could still use some tweaking as the actions are not as smooth as they could be. I am very happy with this game though and I will be sharing my time between this a fallout pretty evenly for the next few months. Expand

    The graphics are pretty amazing. You feel like you are really there. However, the game completely lacks any single player mode. For a gameThe graphics are pretty amazing. You feel like you are really there. However, the game completely lacks any single player mode. For a game that cost $59.99, that is not really acceptable. Also, the multiplayer games do not separate the overplaying veterans from the occasional warrior. So, if you are new to multiplayer shooters and don't mind dying 20 times without getting more than 5 kills every single time you play multiplayer, this game is for you. Otherwise, this game is overpriced for its dearth of features. Unless you are a student or have enough free time to kill to master it and buy all of the equipment, like the 30% of reviewers who thinks this is a good game, you will find it extremely difficult and the gameplay repetitive. EA tried to milk the Starwars franchise with a mediocre game, and they failed. Expand

This was a money grab, put the words star wars on any old pos and it will sell. I expected much more from Disney and EA. Expand

The DLC exclusive maps have very little population and DLC exclusive weapons are by far and away completely overpowered compared to base game weapons. Its almost like people who paid more were given every advantage possible. Expand
