As a huge Star Wars fan, I'm thoroughly delighted that Star Wars: Battlefront is making a return. From the snowy wastes of Hoth to the forest moon of Endor, this is wish-fulfilment at it's finest, now with the added shininess of the Frostbite engine.
If Battlefront is basically Star Wars plus Battlefield, who better than DICE to lead the charge with this new game? And it's shaping up to be something truly special.
We'll be able to take down TIE Fighters in X-Wings, leap into Snowspeeders and "go for the legs" against AT-ATs, and hit the ground as vital cogs in the machine of war as Imperials go toe-to-toe with Rebel forces. Hero units return, and the chance to lead the fight as Luke or Force-fling enemies about as Darth Vader is tantalising indeed.
That galaxy far, far away is about to get a lot closer.
This is pretty much like the Battlefield games but with Star Wars, which I think is a great thing. The maps are huge and feel very epic, taking place on well known Star Wars planets like Hoth, Endor and Tatooine. The graphics and sound design and gorgeous and the classic Star Wars music pumps you up when you're playing 20 vs 20 matches. There are powerups across the map that you can pick up that lets you be your favorite Star Wars characters for a limited amount of time like Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Boba Fett, the Emperor, Darth Vader and each having different abilities, with my favorite being Boba Fett since he fly around with his jetpack. You can even ride speeder bikes on Endor which is very fun. There are co-op missions you can do a friend as well if you like, such as flying X-wings around and destroying TIE fighters. You're going to be dying a lot in this game since there's not a lot of cover with the open battlefields. The only thing that I don't like is the dlc you have to buy for this game to do stuff that should've been in the game already like space battles, other than that, the game is fine and lets you relive many great Star Wars memories from the movies.
This is the quintessential Star Wars game. I have never played a game more faithful to the original trilogy than this Star Wars Battlefront. That being said, it's also incredibly casual and even a bit light on content. Part of this is because DICE had to rush the game out to release before The Force Awakens. Regardless, if you like Battlefield, if you like DICE, or you like the old Battlefront games, this one is worth playing. It may not necessarily have a lot of replay value, but the shooting, visuals, audio, and environments are breathtaking.
Star Wars Battlefront really is a truly immersive game. Walker Assault is a great gamemode, probably the best gamemode. The offline is also good with multiple gamemodes (not as much as online). In my opinion its good though sometimes its over looked.
First glance, the game looks awesome. And the first hours are amazing. But then the lack of content kicks in. Excellent graphics can't compensate for the lack of things to do. There is no real single player, so you are stuck with multiplayer with other people. If you got the money to spare, go for it. Definitely not a bad way to spend a good 50 hours into. But there are betters games for the same buck. But if you happen to be a Star Wars fan this is a game you don't want to miss.
The game isn't the Star Wars Battlefront you remember from the days of PS2. Gone are the massive space battles and the class specific weapons. What you do have is a fun, casual shooter designed to be able to be picked up and played without any previous knowledge of the game. It's fun, lighthearted but lacking heavily in content without the additional purchase of the Season Pass.
