    Nothing gets the gamer closer to experiencing the epic battles of Star Wars than this game.

    A supremely enjoyable online shooter. Against all odds, Battlefront II may make you forget all about that little game called "Halo 2."
  3. With plenty of maps and intriguing campaign missions, Battlefront II's replay value is already pretty high. Tack on the addictive nature of Xbox Live and we have a game that is worth every penny you dropped for it.
  4. With more playable maps, including the excellent space combat battles, and the inclusion of heroes and villains makes this a particularly satisfying Star Wars games fans will love.

    Take away the costumes and the lasers and you've still got an excellent example of how to produce multiplayer bedlam. [Dec 2005, p.110]

    With up to 32 player matches, the ability to use bots, and the incredible amount of customizable options this game will be played for a long time to come.

    Decidedly mediocre. Being able to play as a Jedi is definitely one of its strongest qualities, but it really doesn't make up for a really lackluster massive battlefield shooter.

    I thought it wasn't bad but it wasn't as good as the first one, I also didn't like that you had to start out with one type of person.

    The second best Star Wars game I have ever played.

    The graphics looked amazing for this game and they faithfully recreated many stages from the classic original trilogy and the prequels. The music is fantastic. Everything John Williams composes is the greatest. The sound is superb.

    The gameplay had a massive overhaul and fixed many of the originals problems. They added more modes to make the game fresh, they made the story mode much longer, the galactic conquest added more battles, we could play as jedi and have space battles for the first time and rules for different game modes could be changed.

    The main problems that make the game suffer is that the AI was never fixed, the game is way too easy, the space battle controls suck, poor bonuses, lack of good game modes in instant action and the game gets very tedious.

    Overall a great Star Wars game but could have been easily improved on.

    More of the same which sometimes can be a good thing but not enough of the new to compensate for poor A.I. and boring campaign.
