Summary: I have received this product and it was used. I do not think that this was worth £30 as the disc was lightly scratched and there was a marc on it i did not reconise. I normally buy brand new games for £30!!!
Good but does not reach qualities of Battlefront I
6 November 2011
Summary: Battlefront I gives more fun. In BF1 the battle of Geonosis has a great map. In BF2 it's badly reduced. In BF1 when you occupy a vehicle, you can experience the interior details: this is no longer possible. In BF1 the battles are better and more funny to play. Giving orders in BF2 has become tricky. BF2 is not better:it is just different.
Excerpt: The first battlefront game was a solid title, bringing a taste of simulating the experience of being in one of the films, but lacked depth and ambition with repetitive gameplay and small maps. The sequel brings a number of new features and maps mostly based around the last star wars film, but felt more like an addon rather than a sequel as the number of bots is still low as are the number of online players, in fact the single player expereince is poor due to the ai and...
Pros: comes close to the star wars experience
Cons: not enough of a leap forward from the original
Excerpt: BFII is a team-based, third (or first) person shooter that takes you to locations from episodes III - VI. Follow the career of the 501st Legion of Clone troops, play multiplayer battles online or offline and embark on conquering the galaxy. Play as rebels or the empire in locations from the films as multiple soldier types, from storm troopers to Wookies.
Pros: Playable Jedi, Space missions, great online, new depth to story, playable missions from films .
Cons: Poor AI, occassionally repetetive mission goals, very similar to BF I
Excerpt: After buying my xbox I looked round the usual list of games I couls pick up quite cheap. In the aftermath of Star Wars III I was looking forward to a game were I got to unleash my Jedi powers, this was it. The game is the sequel to the best selling 'Star Wars Battlefront' which basically told the Star Wars story from the point of view of an ordinary foot soldier. This game carries on in the same vein. Firstly there are two basic game types you can play.
Excerpt: in star wars battlefront 2 your objective is to take over the galaxy as one the four highly playable armies, you can play as either the clones or the droids in the clone wars, the rebellion or the empire in the galactic era. in the galactic conquest your objective is to simply take over all the planets from your opponents, this is fun and all planets can be related to the films, eg fighting on the planet Mustafar.
Summary: One week in to playing, what was for me, the most eagerly anticipated sequel of 2005 and I must say that I'm a little dissapointed. It's not that this is a bad game, it isn't, but you get the feeling that it should have been so much better. I suppose that when you think about it, it's always going to be difficult to improve on a genuine Classic (think HALO 2 and KOTOR 2), the fact that the original was so good is always going to make improvements to the sequel difficult.
Summary: this is an online and singe player game, if you are looking for a good splitscreen game better then the last battlefront then you will be dissapointed. In splitscreen mode the graphics are actually WORSE then battlefront 1!
