  1. This is our final, updated review of Star Wars Battlefront 2, and takes into consideration the last minute, temporary removal of real-money microtransactions.

  2. So far, the original Star Wars Battlefront 2 by Pandemic and Lucas Films is still better then what EA created. A PS2 game, is better then a Xbox one or Pc game that has amazing graphics and potential. That's sad.

  3. Big fan of the original games loved the single player campaign the galactic conquest was my personal favourite how ever why can't they just make it like it was in the original games, you no non of this spawning in ships by picking up a token of the floor that's another thing I missed was where you could see a hanger in hoth run in to it and see a bunch of ships and just jump in one an fly off if there was no ship at your base then you just have to fight on foot untill one spawnd back after being destroyed it was all out war and fun.

  4. "i only get about 300-400 credits per 15m match"

    Well… i get about 3000-5000 per 10m match. It's because i do good enough to rank up.

  5. This games was a letdown. So dull with a plot you can see a mile away. There were fun segments but basically monotonous. The flying controls were not the best

  6. 6.5??? I’ll give it an 9. I grew up watching Star Wars and watched all the movies, I played the game before and liked it, I’m not really a fan of playing shooting games but this is Star Wars.

  7. I'm still deciding if I should at least try this, but I don't want to give ea more money and all reviews seem to be negative. Guess I'll just stick with swtor but I would like another decent star wars game to play.

  8. Never mind the loot crates, people need to worry more about just what a buggy, badly written disgrace of a game this is. I've been writing software for over 30 years and if I'd let something so unstable pass beyond Beta then I'd expect the riot act and be looking for a new job. It's still lagging and crashing systems (Xbox One X and PC for me) to this very day. I've uninstalled until I hear anything positive about stability, I only wish I could of got refunds for the 2 copies I bought.

  9. Visuals and sound design are all that's saving this game. It doesn't play well at all even before microtransactions. It's a tactile thing. It doesn't control poorly, it's not floaty or clunky. It's just bland. It has no punch. Same as the first game. That alone brings it down to a 7/10 experience even before you factor in the pitiful progression and weak story. It's like a 4.5 or 5/10 when all's said and done. Again, with its visuals and sound design propping it up.

    Despite its looking just like a Star Wars film, that's where it's fan-pandering begins and ends. Locking all of the notable characters, the ones people want to play as most, behind a paywall or ridiculous amounts of hours of gameplay makes it fail even as a fan-servicey licensed game. Even as a digital museum of sorts for the Star Wars universe it has flaws, let alone as a Star Wars game.
