Fight on the side of good or evil as you battle your way through
the Star Wars universe. Navigate a number of scenarios
and locations taken from the latest Star Wars movie,
Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, or battle within
the interior of the Death Star and visit Princess Leia's blockade
runner, the Tantive IV, as seen at the beginning of Episode
IV: A New Hope. In addition, players can engage in space
combat and, during the same battle, board enemy ships to attack
from within. Starting on foot inside a capital ship, players
can enter the spacecraft of their choice and travel into space
to dogfight with the rival faction. From there, they can dock
within the enemy's capital ship, overtake the ship's command
posts, man its turrets to disable its shields and destroy
it from within. Or, you can stay inside your own capital ship
and defend it from attacks and enemy fire...
Wars Battlefront II is
a huge improvement on the first
Battlefront game - mainly due to the fact that you
can now take on the enemy in huge space battles. You can pilot
just about every vehicle from all six movies and either engage
in dog fights, or sneak troops into your enemies base (to
take it down from the inside). Now you really can recreate
(almost) every battle in the Star Wars universe, playing
on which ever side you fancy.
single player story mode, you get to step into the Star
Wars universe and fight your way through first/third person
shooter levels and epic space battles. This is really the
best way to get up to speed with the controls before you venture
online - otherwise you'll be slaughtered before you know what's
the single player mode is pretty good, there are some slight
problems with poor AI. You'll have a much better gaming experience
(once you've had a bit of practice) if you go online, or battle
against some friends via the split screen mode.
space battles transported this 35-year-old reviewer back to
being a kid again. The excitement of hearing those Tie-Fighters'
screaming through the air is made even more sweet by the
fact that it's you controlling them. Or how about piloting
a Snow Speeder on Hoth? Either pilot the craft yourself,
or let your friend (or if you are playing alone the computer)
fly the ship while you handle the harpoon gun. Fire your weapon
at the huge AT-AT vehicles of The Empire, and watch as you
tangle the legs of your enemy's troop transporter. Then cheer
as it comes tumbling down.
interesting edition is the ability to play as one of the movie's
main characters during the game. Most levels have unlockable
characters, that you can gain access to once you have scored
enough points, but every now and then an on-screen prompt
will ask if you want to play as Darth Vader, Boba Fett, Yoda,
Luke Skywalker, or some other powerful character that is relevant
to the timeline that you are playing in.
sound effects, great background voice acting and John William's
numerous Star Wars scores all add make this the
next best thing to starring in your very own Star Wars
movie. With so many new and classic characters and vehicles
to choose from, this will appeal to both new and old fans
was a shame that the game's developers didn't recreated a
playable version of the attack on the Death Star from the
end of A New Hope. An online version of this would
have been been the icing on the cake to what is an almost
faultless game. All Star Wars fans should own this.
