Star Wars Battlefront 2 Review Summary

FairCritic Consensus

Barely-There Campaign

Beautiful Presentation

Solid Shooting

Star Wars Battlefront 2 was a battleground for everyone who played it. Some loved the changes made from the first game and the many different modes. Even after fixing the progression, some still see this entry as lacking compared to what came before.

Critic Reviews for Star Wars Battlefront 2

From the satisfying trooper battles on the ground to the thrilling dogfights in space, Battlefront 2 has struck back, delivering an unrivaled Force-fueled multiplayer fantasy.

Read full review

A spectacular, occasionally very fun tour of Star Wars battles that disappoints with a boring story, crappy progression system, and endless grenade spam.

DICE goes big in a Call of Duty-baiting package that's as maddening, uneven and spectacular as the Star Wars films themselves.

A revamped progression system and the demotion of loot boxes to a purely cosmetic role finally gives this ambitious Star Wars game the redemption it deserves.

Read full review

A very strong multiplayer offering tarnished by overly complicated character progression, and a lavish, beautiful story campaign lacking in substance or subtlety.

A thrilling Star Wars moment can end up feeling gross when you're reminded of the microtransactions mid-match

Star Wars Battlefront 2 is made up of many different parts that are pretty good, but the whole is consistently undermined by poor choices in the game's multiplayer economy. No aspect of Battlefront 2 is beyond redemption, but it's hard to fall in love with any part of it, either. It's mostly a disjointed, sporadically fun collection of modes set in familiar Star Wars scenes. Because players have no idea what is really being sold to them, or when, you have a big-name launch that gets in the way of itself more than it creates fun.
