Summary: I was really hesitant to get this game after playing "Battlefront I". However, I got a good recommendation for it and praise that it was far superior to the first. That's pretty much exactly what I wanted to hear. "Battlefront I" is really cool in concept, but it was lacking a ton. Co-op was practically useless, too fast, and virtually no story. It was just boring! Luckily just about all these misgivings I had for "Battlefront I" were fixed in "Battlefront II".
Summary: The game provides a very entertaining first person shooter experience. The campaigns are short, well directed and do not involve highly complex maps, so the difficulty level is in the action volume vs. the navigation. The ability to use vehicles is a nice feature, but the space battles are bit too difficult to control. A fine game for a beginner or intermediate gamer. Multiplayer in split screens is quite fun, but less cooperative than in other games.
Summary: While the new additions in the game are good (aka the hero's and space battles, new maps, award systems) there are still also things I dislike that have changed. Those things being the fact that the other team and your team kill each other at the same pace and your team has one additional player (you) so your more than likly going to win enlace you try to lose because your definetly going to kill more than any of your other team mates.
Summary: I have played both Battlefront games. I have played the first one time and time again, and I still love it. Yet the second one has drastically devolved from the first game. The thing that made Star Wars Battlefront so amazing was the fact that the player could do anything; you could choose which command posts to take, you could choose your character class, etc. You could choose whether or not you wanted to destroy the shield bunker on Endor.
Summary: Loved the first one, like the second. Yes they added space combat, after a couple of times it is just the same. Ground combat is still the same just a couple of extra characters thrown in. Plus by the time you unlock some of the characters the battle is just about done. a good game to rent but not to buy. after 4 days I'm bored with it. Maybe in a month it'll be fun for a couple more hours.
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

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: "...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 thus should be an online multiplayer game only but with many more players per map. Think of the battle for geonosis from episode 2, we saw huge numbers of droids and clones in intense laser battles, this game fails to create ...
Pros: comes close to the star wars experience
Cons: not enough of a leap forward from the original
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.
