Product Description

Product Description

Star Wars Battlefront II improves upon the original game's single-player experience with open-ended, mission-based objectives inspired from all six Star Wars films. The compelling storyline spans more than 12 new locations, many from Episode III, including volcanic Mustafar and the space battle above Coruscant. All-new classic movie moments complete the Star Wars Battlefront II experience, as players 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, at certain key moments within the battles, players can feel the Force as a Jedi.

For the first time ever, Star Wars Battlefront II 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, they can simply stay inside their own capital ship and defend it from attacks and enemy fire. The choice is theirs.

The stellar online play that marked the original Star Wars Battlefront returns even bigger and better for Star Wars Battlefront II. Players can locate their buddies and track their stats as they battle alongside more players than ever (up to 24 on PS2, 32 on Xbox, 64 on Windows).

Amazon.co.uk Review

With the latest movie almost making up for the quality of the first two films it looks like Star Wars has won back the hearts and minds of fans everywhere and Battlefront II aims to be the perfect celebration of that. Like the original it’s a sort of Star Wars version of PC hit Battlefield 1942, where two armies face off against each other, either off or online, jumping in and out of various vehicles as they find them.

Of course in Battlefield 1942 "various vehicles" meant jeeps and tanks, in Battlefront II it means X-wings, TIE Fighters, AT-ATs and, for the first time, Episode III vehicles like the BARC speeder, Jedi Starfighter II and V-wing.

The biggest change to the game, apart from the new vehicles, is space battles with several of the levels taking part aboard giant space cruisers which you can exit in starfighters, have a dogfight in deep space around and then pilot back to for a bit more on foot combat. Levels include the Blockade Runner from the beginning of A New Hope, the space battle above Coruscant and Utapau and Mustafa from Episode III.

Another long awaited addition is playable Jedi, although you can only be one for a short time so as to not unbalance the gameplay. Although the emphasis is on online play the single player mode has been beefed up with better artificial intelligence and a proper story linking all the missions. "Star Wars fans, like this, they will", as Yoda would say (if he was real and wrote game previews instead of being a Jedi Master). -- Harrison Dent

This preview is based on an incomplete version of the game; features or problems mentioned above may not appear in the finished game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stunning 4 Jun 2007
By Rory Mercer VINE VOICE
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
There are not many products that deserve a perfect rating and I have to say this is not perfect, it is pretty darn close though! Graphics are superb and the multi-player modes are fabulous (great feature, play with your friends or against them).

I have very few criticisms, I would say that the bigger your TV is the better the experience you get as the multiplayer mode is better if you can see more of the screen.

I can keep playing it over and over, a great treat for yourself or as a gift. I am off to play it now!

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic 23 July 2007
By Smatch VINE VOICE
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've got to say that this is like no PS2 game I have ever played, you can go on it again and again without getting bored. There is a great set of missions where you follow the rise of the Empire where they start off as clones and work up through the story to Storm Troopers!
The instant action is much improved from Battlefront I because there are way more maps offering more scope and detail, with the option of hunting down the planet's native creatures, capturing the flag or just fighting to the death on conquest you can's go wrong.
The game's new Galactic Conquest is very fun conquering planets, buying troops and getting bonuses, The film's heroes and villians are also avaliable to play as (as well as in instant action).
Last of all is the space battles - they are amazing! you can fly anywhere on the map (within reason) either destroying enemy fighters, bombing the enemey's capital ships and frigates or entering their capital ship destroying their internal systems.
Battlefront II is definately a classic PS2 game in a league of its own. Amazing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Star wars paradise 5 Dec 2006
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
For the best Star wars game don't go to KOTR or LEGO Star wars II (even though they are very good games) SWB II provides the bast intense Star Wars experience ever, from soaring around a Star Destroyer in an X-wing to charging into the battle fields of Kshyyyk, SWB II has it all.

Possible the greatest new addition to the game is not space, but the ability to become heros. Such as Boba Fett, Darth Vader, Obi-Wan Kenobi and many more. For the unltimate hero experience check out the Mos Eisley assault level, which provides a hero on hero battle royale.

The main downside to this game is it's incredibly short campaign, which can feel a little repetitive and sluggish at times, but also thrilling and totally exhilerating in others. Another problem is the loading times, especially when playing with friends (which by the way, if one of the best features of SWB II).

Overall imagine a game where you can kill your best friend as one of your best loved star wars characters, or kill one of your best loved star wars characters as a random trooper for massive bragging rights. Great game!

4.0 out of 5 stars New isn't always best 28 Mar 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Now i know that the game has been out for some time but i'm a bit new to reviews so i'll get started.

Star wars Battlefront II is a Brilliant game.When i first got it for my birthday I was overjoyed ,On the Internet it Looked a great game and it was.

Having already played Battlefront1 I knew the controls pretty well.But my God even the training blew me away.There was even more explosions and Action than an American cop drama.The grapics are a great improvement too I noteced this on Battlefront1 compared to B2.Battlefront2 is much more detailed.The option of more troops is a real step too, the chance to be a clone commander and just cut down droid after droid after droid with your chaingun(yes, you heard me right a chaingun).One off the same Problems was you couldn't be the Droids and fight the rebels(this being an example) and that just begs the queston "what if"(There's only one or two missions where you can do this).You also get the impresson that they didn't put that much work into the soldiers that fight beside you.When you're doing the story missions most of the pressure is on you and the screen inbetween story missions and Battles it keeps on going about your team,what team?! well yeah you can pluck guys from the battle and they'll follow you and shoot enemy's but it's just so limited on B1 you could do much more.It's just like asking Lamborgini to make a replica of a ford escort.So the lifeline of a soldier is:spawn follow,shoot,die and it just goes around like this also there intelligence looks pretty poor and is ,they only use there first weapon,now i know you're supposed to take some guys down with you but if they can make the frendly AI just a bit better then it would be perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, especially multiplayer modes 19 Dec 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is one of the best (if not THE best) game I have ever played on PS2. It has great graphics and the gameplay is brilliant and easy to pick up and remember.

* There more maps than in the first Battlefront.
* You can fight as a named jedi, sith, or bounty hunter and more (e.g. Yoda, The Emperor but he's rubbish, Jango Fett...)
* More game modes, including one where you can fight as a hero every time you spawn, and against other heroes.
* You can fight in space and board enemy star cruisers before destroying them from the inside!
* You can pilot new vehicles.
* Better Galactic Conquest mode, with more planets and you have to buy units and bonuses before you can use them on the battlefield.

- As well as adding new maps and keeping some old ones, they have also got rid of a lot: Cloud City Landing Platforms was one of my favourites from the first Battlefront, as was Rhen Var.
- Space battles are quite fun in small quantities, but if you are playing several in a row in galactic conquest, they are repetetive. (You can just avoid space combat!)

The multiplayer on this is fantastic. I admit I have never played online, but splitscreen mode against a friend is great. You can have decent conversation about the game as you play it, including strategic comments and general banter. I'm not one to sit around all day and play computer games, but I've had some great times with friends on Battlefront I and II.
