Star Wars Battlefront 2 The Review

EA had a task ahead of them, as the sole owners of the Star Wars video game license, they needed to put out something that would blow people away, and give them something to have another influx of cash.

Restart the Battlefront

EA chose the fan favorite Battlefront series to restart with a fresh coat of paint on current Gen consoles, the PS4 and Xbox One.

While the first game in the series was fairly well received, many complained that the game was too linear, having only an online mode or various missions to do by yourself for a solo player.

Many were furious, and EA quickly learned a valuable lesson, one they would not repeat with their second attempt at greatness, Battlefront 2.

Learn with 2

Battlefront 2 released in November of 2017 with a promise of so much new content and most of it would be free. EA tried to ease fans back into this game after being vocal about the previous instalment. They did succeed in bringing back the customers, and on delivering an excellent experience for Star Wars fans.

Yes, there is still a strong online mode for this game, comprising much of the game honestly, but, they did manage to sneak in a story mode much to the delight of the fans of solo campaigns everywhere.

They also managed to make it so you could do most of the challenges offline, so no one could interfere with those crucial moments of leveling up a hero or your favorite vehicle. For the online gamer, there is so much to choose from in the game.

You have your standard boots on the ground fights which have hefty servers, which allow them to have numerous players on maps on either side of the battle.

They knew the best way to keep this game going was with new updates, new modes and the like. So, it is precisely what they did. They have been adding more hero characters since the game released, even as soon as a month or so ago adding General Grevious to the mix.

Affordable Bigger Picture

They wanted people to keep coming back. Now, the fact that this game sells for fairly low price pretty much anywhere you go is also a huge factor in its survival rate. Many thought It would die out quickly, but then they didn’t see EA’s bigger picture either.

I was fortunate enough to snag this bad boy on PlayStation for an affordable price. They had the first and second games bundled with all DLC for 7.50. So, keep an eye out, and you too can have this game for a super
low price.

One of the big draws of this game and the last for that matter was the ability to play as the prime heroes or villains of the Star Wars universe. This game gives you 20 characters to choose from, some of them added as I said, so any who decided to stop playing this game earlier may have missed out on some cool characters like Anakin or Count Dooku.

Another Review

So, in the end, I would give this game 7 out of 10. While excellent for online frantic Star Wars battles and space combat, there still is so much more than I would want from this game for me to give it a higher score. It is still fun, and at a low price, definitely worth a look and play.
