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.

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

Battlefront 2 does a lot of things right, offering a Star Wars experience that's stunning to look at and wonderfully faithful to the source material, but it stumbles hard on the delivery.
