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

    Star Wars Battlefront II is like a dream come true. The game has a lot of content and it knows how to manage that with a campaign which introduces one of the best characters in the series. It also has a multiplayer that will be the one that catches us for months. Graphics and sound quality are the best of the generation, without a doubt.

    This may well not be a perfect game, but it’s certainly a great one, it’s energetic, thrilling and engaging.

    Star Wars Battlefront II is a solid shooter true to the Star Wars universe, able to replicate the most famous battles in Lucas’ universe.

    Star Wars Battlefront 2 is one of the most enjoyable multiplayer games of 2017, especially if you like Star Wars. It's also more flawed than it should be. Battlefront 2 doesn't deserve to be wholly defined by loot boxes, but it's inescapable given the impact they have on some of the core modes. This is why you don't tie gameplay to microtransactions.

    Battlefront II is fan service and little else; much respect to the craft, the attention to detail and the wealth of content, but sadly it just isn't enough. It's starting to feel as if Star Wars simply isn't a franchise suitable for this type of sprawling, large-scale multiplayer experience. It doesn't have it in its bones, and if DICE can't find a way to make it work, we're fearful nobody can. [Issue#195, p.72]

    A good core game of cool Star Wars battles on fun and interesting maps is bogged down by clumsy, convoluted progression systems, and the single player is interesting but unfinished.

    It is especially abhorrent that this should happen in a game with almost unrivalled massmarket appeal...No doubt EA and its trio of development studios will fix this mess eventually, but the fact they deemed it fit for purpose in the first place is unavoidable, and damning in the extreme. Whatever happens next, we're afraid we don't patch review scores. [Issue#314, p.104]

    The lootboxes are being fixed.

    Its a perfect SW game that understands the most important thing about SW : lore. The maps are source-book

    Its a perfect SW game that understands the most important thing about SW : lore.
    The maps are source-book perfect (with minor alterations for gameplay)
    The balsters feel great

    the only issue is cross-era gameplay

    What many dont understand is that :
    Chars are FREE you cant buy them.
    No season pass.

Its multiplayer is fun and it always makes us with my friends cheer as we were 10 year olds back in the days. I personally liked the story and the resurrection dlc too. Hectic and looks amazing, nothing brave but it is very enjoyable, which is the most important thing. I'm so glad it has a renaissance and that we are part of it. Expand

    Pros:

    - Una campaña que engancha y es muy fiel.
    - Los modos multijugador están bastante bien, mapas grandes.
    Contra:
    - En el modo multijugador no hay modo Fanático/Extremo.
    - Pese que temporalmente hayan anunciado el cese de los micropagos, me parecen unas políticas abusivas. Jamás se debe consentir que para exprimir al máximo el juego debas de pagar más.
    - Mas modos de juego en multijugador, captura de banderas, Tct etc

    Game is broken. Aim reticle moves on its own regardless of which controller settings you use. Trying to lead a target results in the reticleGame is broken. Aim reticle moves on its own regardless of which controller settings you use. Trying to lead a target results in the reticle shooting off in the direction your leading towards which makes it impossible to play online. Some searching online reveals this is a common problem and strikes people randomly and worse there's no fix. The developers are aware of the issue and haven't fixed it. I'm refunding the game and moving on. Expand

    shame on you ea i have lost confidence in your products for years to come not only will i not buy your games until you change your business practices i will also make sure any kids i may have in the future never play your so called games
    seriously the amount of governments and other corporations that got involved just so you temporarily remove your pay 2 win gambling crates is disgusting

    Disney
    blizzard(despite looking hypocritical)
    dutch government
    never lands government
    Belgian government
    and these are just the ones i know about
    ea are bigger crooks then Squizzy Taylor and if you look up all the messed up things this individual did that is really saying something

    EA tries to please casual gamers and hardcore gamers at the same time, but the old saying about that stands true: jack of all trades, masterEA tries to please casual gamers and hardcore gamers at the same time, but the old saying about that stands true: jack of all trades, master of none. It's not casual enough to be arcade like, and not hardcore enough to be a Battlefield with a Star Wars skin. Also, the economy debacle is worse than anything I have ever seen in a game. Expand

Agora se posicionou dizendo que está "temporariamente" suspenso o pay to win. Vergonhoso. Nota 0. Não vou comprar mais apesar de ser muito fã da série Star Wars. Expand
