Star Wars Battlefront 2
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.
Top Critic Average
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.
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.
Anyone who's already a Star Wars Fan, is definitely going to be entertained by it. However, if one's leaves any elements aside that actually indicate the Star Wars franchise, what's left is solely a generic shooter - with admittedly stunning visuals - but a game that's offering nothing new.

The Star Wars Battlefront series has always been credible for it’s ability to somewhat ease the insatiable Star Wars void that sits inside fans of the iconic, sci-fi franchise. Come on fans, you have to admit that no matter how much you indulge in the series over a multitude of mediums, you always want more. This is where the Battlefront series shines. With it’s spectacular portrayal of Star Wars settings and events combined with trademark sounds of blaster rifles and Wookie cries, the Battlefront series definitely takes pride in it’s ability to moderate that galaxy sized void that sits inside you, regardless of who’s hands the game series sits in. It goes without saying that EA DICE’s sequel to Battlefront (2015), Battlefront 2 upholds that very same vibe the series is renowned for maintaining.
Star Wars: Battlefront 2 features fun gameplay, a campaign with worthy additions to the Star Wars canon, and offers gamers both casual and dedicated alike a worthwhile ride through the Galaxy far, far away!
Star Wars: Battlefront 2 will go down as one of the biggest screw ups in video game history. EA and DICE had the easiest job in the world and completely ruined it with the absolutely ridiculous and downright unacceptable progression system for multiplayer. Combine that with the incredibly boring, lazy, and cliche story campaign and you easily have the biggest disappointment of 2017.
Star Wars: Battlefront II is a wasted opportunity. The game was totally on track, fixing everything the first title did wrong and keeping the gorgeous graphics and perfect sounds. In the end, we have a mediocre single-player campaign, an ordinary Arcade mode and a varied multiplayer that suffers with lag, balancing, and a progression system tied to randomness.

Just like in the first Battlefront game in 2015 it doesn’t disappoint when it comes to the graphical side of things. Naboo, looks stunning, Starkiller base from The Force Awakens look practically identical and when moving round the maps you get a sense of “I’ve seen this place before” or “this is the part in the film where…”. You can tell that a lot of effort has been put into making the levels really stand out and like the locations they are taken from.
Despite all the changes and partial removals of Pay2Win elements it's still a broken mess.

Star Wars Battlefront is a perfect example for those who treat gamers like EA does. The game itself is gorgeous and nobody can deny that! But EA's miserable mistakes and some other things don't let it be better. This isn't something new. It's happened before and today we still see it happening. Looks like EA doesn't want to stop. Star Wars Battlefront is still something you can enjoy playing but you can easily hate its guts at the same time.
