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]

    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.

    Ignore the negative scores. They were posted before EA fixed the loot box issues.

    The single player campaign is a really gripping and a step away from your usual "single player add-on" to a multiplayer game. You play as one main character but they mix this up well with other missions using iconic characters from the entire movie series.

    The multiplayer is ok. Similar to Battlefront one but they've added classes and removed the bonus pick-ups (you know use your score to choose pick-ups). The modes are pretty much as you expect, conquest type, rush type, team death match and spaceship battles..

    All in all it's a fun game, especially if you can pick it up on sale.

    Ok first off this game is not a 0 or a 2 rated game. A 0 or 2 rated game is a game that cant be played because of all the glitches and bugs orOk first off this game is not a 0 or a 2 rated game. A 0 or 2 rated game is a game that cant be played because of all the glitches and bugs or is unfinished Battlefront 2 is none of that. Yes the pay to win is stupid but it should not effect the score to a 0 or 2 just because of that. They are starting to fix it (hopefully) but the game play is good the graphics are beautiful I have not run into problems with the game so to me that makes it a 6 and if they were to take out the card system it would be an 8 so don't listen to the 0 rating score if you want to see a real 1 rated game go watch AngryJoes Ride to Hell Angry Review.Everyone I know likes this game it just sucks to have the loot crates in it. If your interested and like star wars and shooting games just wait for this game to go on sale for 40$ or less. Expand

    I value both my time and my money and EA is just a gaming tyrant at this point with ideologies like this.
