    A Good Game That Should Have Been Great

    The first Battlefront reboot was a good game, but failed in comparison to the old Battlefront games. It had limited content for a full priced game, but EA in all their greed happily threw a $50 season pass at you to let you buy the rest of the game. Needless to say, this didn't go over well with a lot of people. This time around it seems like EA has listened to fans and added a lot more content and ditched the season pass? Great eh? Not really. So, what went wrong? The greedy suits at EA that is what. You see, EA has adopted the loot box system to the game. Loot boxes can contain things like in game credits, and power ups for your characters. You can get loot boxes 1 of 2 ways. First through normal play earning credits in the single player modes, and multiplayer modes. The second is to spend more money and buy loot boxes directly. The problem with this is that credits take a long time to earn, and if you don't want to spend a few 100 hours to power up your characters you need to buy them. This means someone with too much money can drop another $100 or so into the game to buy quick, and easy advantages over players who don't. It essentially makes the game pay to win. EA has caught a ton of flak over this and as a result they made a few changes to the game such as reducing hero cost and so on. However while they took these positive steps, they went and reduced credits earned in the games solo modes. Another huge negative of the game is just how limited you are with single player content. Yes there's a story mode, and an arcade mode, but most of the maps, and modes from the online mode are not playable offline. I could go on a bout a lot of the negatives, but the game itself is actually really good. Its still a far cry from the original Battlefront 2 on XBox, PS2, and PC, but its good. The graphics are amazing and if you have and X then you'll be amazed. In the end I can't say if you should buy this game or not. Do you care about being dominated by players who paid for advantages? Do you care about the fairly limited single player content? If you answered no to these questions, and love Star Wars then go ahead. If you do then please don't feed the trolls and spend any cash on loot boxes.

    I love this game

    There’s mixed reviews on this game which I can understand. Yes it’s very “pay to win”, sure the campaign is short, the complaints are not out of line. But, looking past some of its flaws, the positives vastly outweigh the negatives. I didn’t get this game expecting game of the year, I got this game because I love Star Wars and I love EA multiplayer games (Battlefield). When you get into a game, you feel like you’re in a Star Wars movie. The sights, sounds and combat are incredible. The maps are massive with so much going on in the background, packed with 40 players. X-wings and TIE fighters battling above you, Walkers shooting their massive lasers at you, fire coming from empire soldiers on all fronts, Darth Vader chasing you though the caves on Hoth, then you come out of a cave and a TIE fighter suicide crashes into you. It’s such a thrill! Then you become a Jedi and you feel unstoppable. Using the force to freeze everyone in front of you then slashing through them all. It’s so rewarding after all the hard work you put into the objective’s to finally play as one. I prefer this hero system better, instead of a random drop on the map that players rushed to and only one of them getting the hero crate. This system rewards you for playing the objective, not just playing for kills. Which is great if you’re not the best at killing people, you’ll still have a chance to become a hero. The campaign I thought was amazing. Yes it was very short but you do get emotionally invested in it and it ends leaving you statisfied despite its length. I won’t give away any spoilers but it is worth the 4-6 hours. Over all, as I said I got this game because I love Star Wars and this game does the perfect job of making you feel like you’re immersed in the galaxy far far away. It does have its flaws but for the most part, it’s an incredible game with a lot of great updates on the way. Hope this review helps some of you on the fence, if you love Star Wars like I do, give it a shot.

    Decent Game

    This game is by no stretch perfect, but it isn't bad either. The game play is pretty fluid and looks good graphically. There are a few controls that are a little weird, but if you just spend a little time tweaking them you can fine tune it to exactly your play style; the arcade mode makes this really easy if it is just you, you can pause in arcade and adjust on the fly. While there is a lot of "paywall" and "pay to win" being tossed around about the star card abilities, they are really only slight modifiers and only make some changes slightly better (ie reduce a cooldown of a power from say 40s to 30s at its highest level). Also, the fact that you can only run 3 cards limits a player's ability to become too overpowered. At current time the game needs more heroes/characters and the heroes should probably stick to their own timeline (ie. Kylo Ren should not be fighting Yoda). But it has been confirmed more are on their way, which may also get this problem fixed (hoping). Campaign was rather short and can reasonably be beat in about 3-5 hours (depending on skill, difficulty and if you like looking for all the little dialogue of other characters). It also felt a little disjointed, as in several missions thrown together with just enough to not lose the plot completely. Overall, decent game, EA seems to actually be responding to the community for a change (at least for now [look up Vader/Luke Reddit]) and confirmed all DLC will be free with this game means no mandatory transactions to keep playing long term.

    Excellent Star Wars Game (A Casual Gamer's POV)

    This is a great improvement over the first Battlefront game. I did not like the lack of solo game play. Plus, no story-line! It was just a randomized shoot'em game, that had its moments, great worlds, but ultimately, a casual gamer like myself cannot enjoy due to the forced multi-player insanity. Nothing beats turning on a game after a 50-hour work week, jumping into a mission, and getting blown away in micro-seconds. THIS game HAS a story, and as a 40-year fan, I can say that the story fits in well with the saga. I was able to beat the campaign, and it felt very satisfying. It was tricky, and the controls took time, but the end result was truly rewarding. I know I'm not a true gamer--one probably will disregard my review, but this is for the 12-hour-a-day worker who might sneak an hour (or if lucky two) every so often. I took advantage of my Thanksgiving holiday to play. Also, I know the pay-to-play loot crate scandal is very off-putting, but since I'm not in it to get all the rewards/characters within a week, it doesn't affect the casual gamer like me. This game is great, there's a chance to play all the major characters in the campaign, so those who worry about not playing the original triumvirate of Luke, Han, or Leia, fear not! This is the SW game for XBox I've been looking for! Oh, and it's worth it to purchase the Deluxe edition that upgrades Rey and Kylo. They're excellent characters to play around with! (Kylo especially is pretty wild). Enjoy!

    Better but a grind

    I'll start with the micro-transactions. it didn't matter because the card upgrade system was/is just as dumb. Even if you bought all the cards you have to be a certain level to upgrade them. so once they put it back it will likely be worse unless fixed as people will be the player level needed. In multiplayer, there are really three modes worth caring about. Starfighter Assault, the spaceship-only skirmish that effortlessly blends objective play with standard dogfights; Heroes vs Villains, where you get to live out your fantasies of playing as iconic Star Wars characters; and Galactic Assault, the Conquest/Rush-style objective mode with the highest player count of 20v20. best xp gain has been from Heroes vs Villains. basically like the first one if you played it. Short matches with lots of points. Single Player is there now but so simple it's useless unless you want the credits and achievements worst mechanic left off is still not able to climb. they have ramp areas or short places to jump on or over. there are some things or even areas where climbing over would be so helpful Another con is playing with friends. yes you can invite them but for Galactic Assault there are no groups like Battlefield. you get paired with 3 random people. they have a sign that says stay together for more points but since no one talk people quickly go their way

    FAR Superior to Battlefront!

    I am a LONG time fan of the Battlefront series. Played the Xbox original Battlefront and Battlefront II in 2004 and 2005. I thoroughly enjoyed the originals. With that said, I did not really enjoy the new Battlefront. I felt they stripped the game of lots of features I liked from the originals (no vehicles, etc)! Something about it just wasn't fun... Now to Battlefront II! So glad I gave it a chance because it has far exceeded my expectations and is back to being a lot of fun again. I love that they added a campaign and seem to be continually adding more content (Just released free DLC). I love the system of having lots of achievements to unlock which give you crafting parts that allow you to upgrade your characters. It's very addicting! You just want your characters to be the best! Heroes vs. Villains is my favorite and I really love the character spread! Dark side villains are SO much fun. The only thing is the light side characters should have stronger powers, as the dark side is really overpowered compared to them. It's hard to win as the Heroes. Galactic Assault is also a ton of fun! I definitely recommend!

    A fun game despite the negative media.

    I had this game pre-ordered as I am a Star Wars fan and I enjoyed the 2015 one a great deal. even though I was hearing bad things I still went ahead with the purchase. All in all it is a good game. The graphics are excellent and the controls are similar to the previous game. Obviously with the media surrounding the 'pay to win' and the 'micro transactions' I don't need to go into those things, but there are a few other things about the game that bugs me. I personally don't like that you can play as heroes from any era in every game. In the 'Heroes v Villains' mode I understand having it, but in a regular game mode like 'Galactic Assault' I would prefer to only have the heroes from the correct era. I also have a problem with the fact that you can have so many heroes in one game. It can be very frustrating if you have a bunch of great players on one team and because they get enough points, they are all Heroes and you end up with 5 or 6 against maybe 1 on the other team. Other than those gripes though, I very much enjoy the basic gameplay and will probably continue to play this for a long time.

    Good but has flaws

    Bought this for the mainly for the single player campaign as it is canon in the Star Wars universe. Story wise it is a little lacking and felt like if I didn't see it wouldn’t really matter (like I was not missing anything). The main story also let you control some of the main known Star Wars characters but it seamed like adding them in was just to get you to know the control/feel of the characters for the multiplayer. Then there is the multiplayer. I thought the over all game play was a bit better than battlefront 1 especially with more of the maps however the glitches in the game (such as shooting someone under small cover and not hitting them repeatedly just for them to shoot you through two walls) and the loot crate system stifles the fun. Nothing like battling for hours in multiplayer just to redeem credits to get more abilities (ones you can’t choose for yourself) and get just an emote or my favorite (sarcastic) every ability/item you already have and get about 1/4 your credits back. Still EA is supposedly changing things and hopefully it will get better.
