Product Details

Description:

Players who log in to this corner of the Star Wars universe find live-action battle against like-minded gamers and fans from around the country. Likely inspired to some extent by Digital Illusions' successful Battlefield series, this LucasArts shooter features the same style of fast-paced, large-scale, multiplayer warfare, but is set a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. Instead of Axis versus Allies, or the United States fighting North Vietnam, Imperial Stormtroopers, and separatist droids face off against rebel commandos and clone army soldiers in Star Wars: Battlefront.The battlegrounds featured in the game are intended to highlight the most memorable conflicts from all six Star Wars films, and offer a dozen different environments on ten famous planets, including Hoth, Endor, Tatooine, and Kamino. In many locations, a selection of drivable vehicles can be found, such as speeder bikes, Imperial walkers, and X-Wing fighters, and these may turn the battle in favor of the soldiers who can put them to best use. The game can be played from either a first- or third-person perspective, and offers split-screen multiplayer modes for consoles without Internet connections. At least 16 players can battle together online, and three single-player modes are offered as well: Instant Action, Galactic Conquest, and the plot-driven Historical Campaigns. ~ T.J.

Star Wars Battlefront

Strengths: Awesome shooter with Star Wars licence, great online play

Weakness: Could use a little more stat tracking

First, I'll start off this review by saying that I have never been a fan of first or third person shooter type games. Halo? Never played it, don't want to... The only game that is sort of in that genre that I have enjoyed is Metroid Prime. I also have never been into playing games online. Well, then along came Star Wars Battlefront. I avoided this game for a while because I didn't think I'd like...

great game, sequel will fix mistakes

Strengths: this game provides a unique battle experience, and can make for hours of entertaining yourself by shooting jawas, ewoks, gungans and using the wookie grenade launcher.

Weakness: The sky isnt big enough to dogfight in, and the jedi are nothing special, but im looking folward to having that change in the next one

This game is the best Star Wars game there is for the PS2. If you are a Star Wars fan or just looking for a good shooter, i suggest this game, or waiting for the sequel that comes out nov. 1rst of this year. This game is great online, void all of the 10 year old kids that have no idea what theyre doing. (GET THE SEQUEL, OR AT LEAST CHECK IT OUT AT WWW.LUCASARTS.COM)

Fun shooter for the star wars fans

Strengths: online play

Weakness: weak story

This game has great gameplay. It is basically battlefield 1942 set in the star wars universe. I admit I am not the biggest star wars fan but I had a lot of fun with this title. It has great mulitplayer and the single player is quite helpfully for practiing for mulitplayer. Highly recommended.

Star Wars: Battlefront

Strengths: Amazing graphics, awesome game play, online support, multiple levels

Weakness: None!

This is an amazing video game that is a must own for any Star Wars fanatic. The game has several battlefields from the different scenes during the many Star Wars movies, and this game allows the gamer to participate in these major battles to determine the outcome! One can play as the Empire or the Rebels and select a certain class of character, such as a sniper or plain storm trooper. The player...

Good Shooter based on Great License

Strengths: + great looking graphics + multiplayer (versus and co-op) + based on the Star Wars franchise

Weakness: - very little variety in terms of missions (it's always "capture the flag") - no storyline

It's certainly not the best shooter but being able to play through some of the biggest battles in Star Wars history makes it well worth the price. The single player mode gets repetitive fast especially since there's no aspect of exploration and all battles pretty much have the same goals (i.e. capture the enemy bases or destroy something). Great game if you have a friend to play the multiplayer...
