Conclusion: I suppose some folks might come out and say that Battlefront does what it's supposed to do: be a Star Wars liscenced Unreal Tounrament clone. In that sense, this game doesn't dissapoint. There IS a lot of fun to be had. But the reality is, when it comes time to pony up with the cash, an average gamer demands an in-depth, solid and immersive single player experience with more than 12 hours worth of gameplay. If that's what you're looking for, then keep on looking.
Conclusion: Hi, Um I just bought the game and find that the single player mode is quite good. The rich graphics and awesome scenary make this game very good indeed. There`s just one problem though. The online multiplayer mode is a major drag. Oh I`m sorry I mean`t lag!!!!! I`ts unbeleivable how much lag there is. My broadband connection is not the problem as I have the best DSL on the planet. Believe me I checked. I mean sometimes I go on and I can`t even move it`s so bad.
Excerpt: Star Wars: Battlefront (SWB) This game is, on the whole a really good game with good two player action and a vast array of maps and weapons. However there are a number of disadvantages to this game. (SWB) Does get very repetitive and tedious quickly as the gameplay doesn't vary from stage to stage.
Excerpt: It is a fun game but the problem is that after your fourth mission it seems to get very old capture a base lose a base capture a base lose a base the quickest way to winis just to kill everyone on the other team which can get old since you only have a few weapons. so over all i would try it mabye rent it first but i think that after the first 1 to 3 hours you will put it away and not look at it again for a long time you can try to go on x-box live if you have it but even...
Summary: Alot to say not enough to do. It's good but can get boring very quickly, well if your not with Xbox Live, or Net Play, because on your own its boring after the first week. If you do have online capabilities this game is excellent, because you can have a server of up to 16 people which is briliant on halo, but on this its let me put it lightly the best first person online game / 3rd person thingy I have ever seen.
Summary: Off on holiday from work i tootled into town and picked up Battlefront not too excited about it, i couldnt find anything else i really wanted to play. I was pleasently suprised at the visually stunning graphics and diverse areas which this game covers. Overall though this game has left me feeling a bit well, unopininated on it. It was worryingly short ( Main quest and both historical quest sections took little over 4 hours to finish ).
Summary: Since this game has been sold-out on the high street for a while I foolishly assumed that this translated into 'the game is brilliant' and ordered it via Amazon. Turned up quicker than the high street could deliver it; which is nice. As it is, its probably the best attempt at releasing a game under the Star Wars franchise, but its not a particulraly sparkling first person shooter / action game.
Summary: I was disappointed with this game when I finally got to play it. Or at least I am with the xbox version. It appears to have been rushed out to coincide with the release of the DVD's and they haven't carried out the optimisation required. I give it 3 stars for the single player side of things which is actually quite good, rushing to attack the rebels with huge ATAT walkers beside you is excellant. The problems are with xbox live.
