This is a great game, especially for playing multiplayer. It's a very good game for single player as well.

This is a great 1st/3rd person star wars shooter.I have only played on singleplayer and splitscreen but I am planning on buying a network adaptor for my PS2 so I can go online.every team has 5 soldiers to choose from for whichever team you are on(my favorite is the destroyer droid for the Droid team)
Controls are easy to get use to and you can drive vehicles and star ships and commondeer enemies vehicles (such fun!!!).You can also command other soldiers to follow you and get into vehicles and be your main turret. you can get into turrets, build turrets when you are a pilot and lead squads on raids to enemy bases(there is also a suprise on tatoonie.)
This is a great game and a must have for all star wars fans

I've had battlefront for a day, the single player levels are too easy, I'm most of the way through them already, with many levels completed at the first go.
That said the sounds are sights of the battles from Star Wars are a worthy experience, but I would agree with another reviewer that you may as well rent the game over 2-3 days - you'll finish it. That only leaves the online experience which is nt that great.
I agree with some other reviewers that say the graphics are nt what they could have been. Yes, you can't always see what lies ahead. The action sometimes slows down and becomes jerky, especially online.
In terms of an online experience there are a number of flaws. Firstly if you play with a headset with a headset players seem to have a mike on all the time, so all you can hear is mindless chatter in various languages which also takes up valuable bandwdith. I could even hear the sound effects from another player's game. Why was nt this set up like medal of honor where only one team member speaks at a time by keying a button?
Playing online even on a "dedicated" server is too jerky. Try taking a shot in the heat of battle through a sniper rifle and it's pointless. MOH provides a better online experience as it's smoother and easier to manage the smaller player numbers. Battlefront has great landscapes, it's a pity the playing experience does nt match.
Most of the vehicles in the game are a bit of waste of time. The x-wing and other 'fighters' are pointless, as you are contrained to a tiny map where you can fly out in seconds. They should have been dropped from the game in favour of a dedicated space battle fighter game. When you fly an x-wing, y-wing or tie fighter you'll see what I mean as you lumber slowly around the battlefied. The action is better on foot.
To be fair, some of the vehicles do provide better action which is more relevent to winning levels: the snow speeders and AT-ATs on hoth, and some of the vehicles used by the clones on geonosis are more useful.
All in all, I'm not too impressed. £30+ for a game which you can complete in a few days is nt value for money and from what I've seen playing online I'm not too impressed with that either.
I've played MOH a great deal online and really enjoyed the experience. The action is smoother, and team work comes more easily thanks to a better was of speaking & hosting. If only Battlefront was the same, I'd forgive the games other faults and the online experience of playing in the Star Wars universe would have been awesome.

Having recently got online with my PS2 I am struggling to find a game that will keep me entertained. Whilst SOCOM II is good, the glitches and cheats just don't make it fun. It all seems to be the same maps too. I am coming round to the conclusion that MOH gives a better online game experience anyway! But having played the demo of Battlefront I think I will be spending a lot more time online. This game is fluid, and has many maps, characters and weopons to keep most people happy for months! The ability to use vehicles sets this above any other game on the market at the moment. It reminds me of the game Armageddon on the Atari ST (for those who can remember) where playing against another person is not fustrating but enjoyable! I look forward to the full version and hope the cheats and glitches are kept to a minimum so people who like to play fair and enjoy the game (like me) can!

I was toying with the idea of wanting to buy this game very much but as soon as i rented it and put it in my machine, i knew it wasn't the game i wanted. The graphics aren't as good as GTA San andreas but if you don't mind it sort of blurry then that's ok. The controls for the vehicles are confusing and you need to get your head aroud them. So far i haven't been able to pick up anyone elses fallen gun so i am dissapointed at that. Also, the game would be enhanced if we could see at least a drop of blood when we shoot the enemy. Finally, when you shoot someone, they drop instantly - you cannot see them fall, it's like bang and they are on the floor.
The pros are that you can control any vehicle and the maps are vrey big. There are lots of place to sniper from if you just want to lay down without being disturbed. Good team interaction where you tell them what to do. Good multi-player. Intelligent AI (computer crouches behind walls etc)
The Cons are that the controls are a bit retarded for vehicles. You can't pick up enemy's guns. But overall, it is a good game but i wouldn't recommend buying it, it wouldn't last more than a couple of days.
