Star Wars Battlefront 2 Reviews Summary

Barely-There Campaign
Beautiful Presentation
Solid Shooting

Summary: 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.

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

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

An amazing Star Wars shooter. The game may have started off horribly, after some update the game is amazing. It is fun and fast passed. You can get back into the action within 20 seconds after dying so you don't spend that much time waiting around. There are only three problems I have with the game: 1) The story isn't that good.

Absolutely love everything about this game! I joined in a bit late, but put in many hours already into it. The crazy thing is I've never watch a single movie or episode of Star wars, but just by playing Battlefront 2 I've become a huge fan! Just wish EA didn't give up on it.

The visuals are beautiful! Controls sometime get kinda clunky, especially in space battles where mouse sensitivity changes on you out of nowhere. If not for the issues listed below this would
