    This is my favorite third/first person shooter

    This is my favorite first person/third shooter this generation and it reminds me of socom as far as exciting to play but not the exact same tactics. This price is ridiculously cheap to have the season pass coupled with $40 and now to be $20 is insane. I bought the season pass for $25 and the game on day one with my rewards certificate getting $10 with preorder and had credits which I ended up paying $30 for game out of my pocket. The game is worth $60 plus $50 for the 196 hrs I've played at level 82. Anyone still on the fence about getting this game from their hatred of the season pass and so call lack of content from day one is a fool not to buy the game now. I never believed the game didn't have enough content. Maybe if I paid the $60 plus $50 season pass at full price I would feel differently. I was disappointed not having a campaign at launch but I still love the gameplay. I can't wait for BF 2 next yr. Dice are experts at Multiplayer games and level design and most important fun factor.

    VR experience is pretty good

    I recently bought a PS VR kit, so even though I already played SW:BF to death on the Xbox, I cashed in some certificates and picked this up for PS4 just to try the VR content. I’ll focus on that part of the game here. Overall, the VR content is very high quality, but very short and limited. It’s kind of a Rogue Leader-style experience (all on rails) that lasts around 10-15 minutes. Sitting in an X-wing cockpit, flying around the rebel fleet and a star destroyer - these were all as good as you can imagine given the hardware. I liked it a lot. Even though it’s a memorable and fun experience, you wouldn’t probably want to replay it more than a few times. This makes it kind of hard to recommend for $40, unless you are a major Star Wars fan, are friends with some other fans you’d like to show off your VR on, or somehow haven’t played this game at all yet. If you can find it on sale for $20 or less and love Star Wars, it’s maybe worth a try.

    This is THE edition to get

    You've probably heard all the mixed reviews about this game and also about how terrible it is. And it is true on some aspects: it doesn't live up to the previous Battlefront games for the PS2. The gameplay is rather simplistic and catered to those aren't used to shooters, but the game isn't horrible as many would say. Many of them are blinded by nostalgia, giving this game a much harder time than it deserves. Having been developed by DICE, many also expected this game to be fantastic, so I understand people's frustration on this; this game is nothing like Battlefield. But one of the biggest complaints that I also agreed with is that it didn't have enough content at the beginning. However, with the ultimate edition, you get all the dlc included. If you can get this game on sale, then it is definitely worth it. I would recommend this game to those who are itching for a simple star wars shooter with beautiful graphics, something to hold them off until a better one comes out. But for those who want something in depth, or requires strategy, look for something else.

    Awesome Game - Make Informed Purchase

    When EA Star Wars Battlefront was released in 2015, reviews were mixed regarding the gameplay and content. Many players were upset that there is no story mode and that offline modes are not that impressive. At release, there were only four maps and no space combat. This is understandably frustrating, especially when buyers paid full price and purchased the Season Pass and did not get what they were expecting. With the price dropping down to $39.99 (or less) and with the inclusion of the Season Pass, a year after its initial release is a better time to make the purchase. There are some updates such as additional maps and offline modes that were granted to all players, and all of the Season Pass content is now available to those who purchased it separately or with the Ultimate Edition. While I miss the story modes and offline gameplay from previous Star Wars Battlefront releases, I feel that gameplay is more fluid and in some ways more entertaining with this game. I still play it regularly even a year after its release and have not grown tired of it.

    Star Wars fan bait and nothing more

    I already owned this game, but since the sale price on this edition was cheaper than buying the season pass, I elected to buy it. Obviously the same issues remain - a lack of depth, a lack of story, a lack of variation, and a paucity of single player content. It looks and sounds pretty, but that's about it. Please know that the DLC content can still only be played as multiplayer and are not available even for the offline skirmish mode that was added in mid 2016. This was not clear to me when I bought the game. As for the DLC stages - they are gradually getting less populated, so hopefully DICE will make them available offline. The Rogue One content is interesting for about a day. It's fun to walk the corridors of the Death Star, but since it is only multiplayer and full of jerks who clearly have the time and opportunity to get good at the game, it's just no fun for casual players. Hopefully, DICE puts more effort into the forthcoming sequel. I will be very hesitant to give them any more money.

    The ideal way to play Star Wars Battlefront

    When Battlefront first came out, it wasn't worth getting. There just wasn't enough content. But now, with the Ultimate Edition, this game is worth it. It includes the Season Pass which gives you every Expansion Pack. You're getting more content with the Ultimate Edition, which means you'll be spending more time playing this. In particular the Trench Run level. Every Star Wars fan wants to recreate the last battle in Episode 4. Added Bonus - if you have a PSVR, this game includes the free VR X-Wing mission which is an incredible and surreal experience. In general, this is a good game for casual gamers. You don't have to feel intimidated playing this like other multiplayer shooters. A lot of people give negative feedback towards Star Wars Battlefront, but I can say that now in its current form, it's a good game. Sure, it would be ideal if this game had a campaign mode, but I hope we'll get that in the sequel.

    Multi-Player Fun

    I gave this 3 stars solely based on the lack of offline play, besides that this game would be at least a 4.5 out of 5. As a gamer and a Star Wars Fan, this "Ultimate Edition" was too good to pass up at $20 on Black Friday. That being said, its retail price of $40 is worth it for the seasons pass and the game it comes with. The game itself is gorgeous and immersive, I feel like I'm in the Star Wars Universe when I play. I would recommend this game to anyone who likes shooters and Star Wars, but be warned it is essential to have PS Plus or XBOX live. There is very few things you can do with this game if you don't have a multi-player subscription (PS Plus or XBOX Live). May the force be with you.

    A must for FPS fans who love Star Wars too.

    I'm such a Star Wars fan that I bought this on launch day. Like many of those purchasers, I was disappointed at the lack of content of the launch version. Great looking graphics and excellent audio, but boring after awhile. Fast forward to this ultimate version that I bought for <$20 (with Gamers Club Unlocked) a few weeks ago. Includes almost double the number of maps and game types. Also includes Rogue One playable characters Jyn Erso and Orson Krennic -- if you're lucky enough to play them. There's even a Rogue One map (Scarif). I didn't get to try the VR game that's included as I don't have the PS VR hardware that's required. Overall, the Ultimate Edition is a great game at it's current price point. It's a pity all the game modes weren't available at launch. The game may have done much better than it did.
