If you are wondering if the game captures the authenticity of Star Wars, then yes it does. It is one of the most beautiful games ever made. The graphics are simply stunning. The character models look amazing. The sound effects are amazing as well, the air vehicles, the infantry sounds, the weapons, are just all really good. But even though sounds and graphics are really good, the gameplay just really doesn't cut it.
There are many modes in this game, but only two were meant to capture the full scale of Star Wars Battlefront experience. These are Supremacy and Walker Assault. The other modes just seem to be fillers.
There is no campaign whatsoever, instead you get short tutorials, missions, and a horde mode that you can play co-op or single player. But they just don't fill in the space for the lack of campaign. They get boring fast and playing them once is enough. I know many people and developers said that no one plays the campaign in shooter games, and there is not much interest in them. But this is Star Wars!! Everyone loves Star Wars and a story would have been so much better. Even if it was similar to Galactic Conquest in the past games.
OK, so no campaign. That means that there should be a big multiplayer right? Nope.
So how many maps are there? It's kind of hard to say. There are 4 planets and almost every mode has its own location on those maps. So the team deathmatch mode, called Blast, and Walker Assault take place in different locations on planet Hoth. So that gives a little variety. But if you just want to play Walker Assault, there will be only 4 maps rotating the whole time, making it really repetitive. If you want to play on a different map, too bad, go play another mode.
Moving on. There are no classes and you have the freedom of making your own. You can unlock different gadgets, weapons, perks and power-ups by playing the game, earning credits, and then spending them for the unlocks. You do also have to level up in order to make those unlocks available. This could be harsh for newcomers, since there are already players with most powerful weapons and gadgets. The balance of the game is a weak point as well, because those who play the game a lot are rewarded with powerful items, so the casual player that just wants to jump on and play couple of matches will get killed over and over by them.
Also there are only 11 or so primary weapons, which is not much.
About the gameplay. The character movements are solid and gunplay is good too. It is satisfying to just load bunch of laser projectiles on enemies. You can watch a few videos on YouTube and actually see how good everything comes together. But unfortunately, much of game is not based on your skill. It depends if you are lucky to get some power pick-ups, which are scattered throughout the map. If you get lucky and get into a vehicle or become a hero, you will do good. Otherwise you will probably find yourself getting killed by those who got to these powerups before you. The chances of you getting a these powerups in a few games are high though, and don't worry people are not camping and waiting for them to appear. You will just randomly see one and get them.
I expected a lot from the Hero gameplay as well. On the Rebel side you get Luke, Leia, and Solo. On the Imperial side you get Vader, the Emperor, and Boba Fett. They are all fun to play as, but there are certainly problems. As of now Boba Fett seems to be the most powerful hero. You can just jetpack around, shoot people, and jetpack away to safety without getting too much damage. There seems to be a bug, where Vader just gets stunned constantly when getting hit and there is nothing you can do, except sit there and wait until all your health is depleted. Also Luke v Vader just sucks. If the two are facing, there is no epic fight, just swinging at other with lightsabers and two or three special movies. Not very special. There is a lightsaber duel, where the two clash each other with their lightsabers and whoever does more button mashing wins. But even this pretty much never happens.
OK, that's it I think. My rant is over. Here is just a short of pros and cons of what I talked about above and a few other things.
Amazing graphics and models.
You will like you are in the movies
Gunplay is good.
You can have a lot of fun playing one of the 6 Heroes
Free DLC is coming this Decemeber.
Lack of maps make the game repetitive.
Lack of good balance.
Too few weapons.
No campaign or galactic conquest.
No space battles (we do get something similar though)
Character customization is not well implemented.
Overall, there is fun to be had with this game. But at the retail price, I'd say it's not worth it.
This game does not deserve 1 stars, but it also does not deserve anything higher than 3.
I will start by saying Star Wars Battlefront is not in anyway a bad game. I played worse games that release this year and even worse Star Wars games. People giving this game one star are over exaggerating this game’s issues. However there are issues with the game some deal breakers for some.
Let’s start with the campaign oh wait? There is no story/campaign here what so ever. This is the biggest problem with the game. In an effort to release near the Force Awakens EA decided to ditch the campaign and go for a mostly multiplayer only. In the place of a campaign there are single player stuff. Like Battles, which is multiplayer matches, but with bots. Missions which is like a campaign except there’s only five and they can be complete all within 30 minutes. To put the cherry in this lackluster single player content you get a horde mode. On the positive side of this barebones single player content it can be played split-screen. The days of couch Co-Op aren’t dead looking at you Halo 5.
So with all the focus on multiplayer how does it play? With Battlefield 4 launching with broken servers. I was concerned that when I play the game the servers will be a disaster with rubber banding and connectivity issues, and to my surprise they actually work! The game plays smoothly hardly any latency issues. The game launched with 9 modes, 10 if you count the free DLC Battle of Jakku. Only downside is its only twelve maps with a game that’s multiplayer only you think being Multiplayer only. You think they will have double the maps. I mean Black Ops 3 has the same amount of maps and it had a campaign plus zombies. Another disappointment is lack of clone wars playing the original Battlefronts as a kid, the clone wars were some of my favorite maps and to see it gone is saddening. Also customization is terrible. Rebels have a choice of humans both male and female and then unlock the Alien species at a higher level. For Stormtroopers it’s the same with a no helmet option minus the aliens and a scout and shadow trooper armor set. A No Helmet Option with same options as the rebels, talk about cookie cutter customization.
Don’t worry about the lack of maps EA has you covered! For only the price of $50 you can buy a Season Pass that gives you access to four expansions! What an incredible value! You can’t spell steal without EA. Being serious here the fact that lacking a lot compared to Battlefront 2 which released 10 years ago. Why are they overcharging for this Season Pass? On the plus side they do promise to release more free content like Jakku. Here’s hoping they make up for this lack of content in the future. Just please give us space battles.
Now this game isn’t all disappointment because there are a lot of good things it actually does. Like the graphics they are amazing. The frostbite engine cements itself as being one of the best looking engines out there. It absolutely captures the classic trilogy perfectly with locations like Hoth, Endor, Tatooine, and the mentioned but not shown volcanic planet of Sullust. Anyone who has seen the classic trilogy can appreciate the graphics more as you can see a lot of work was put in to faithfully recreate those scenes and put them in game. I will say it’s the best looking game that has been released so far for this console generation. It also runs at 60 frames per second without a dip in performance. It’s truly a technical marvel and DICE should be lauded for the work they put in. During matches I would take a break from the action and soak in the environments and always being amazed by the graphics and level of detail in the maps.
Not only it captures the look of Star Wars it capture the sounds. The blaster fire sounds are as authentic as ever. John William’s original score returns with it being masterful used during certain parts. The only negative is the voice acting for the heroes its terrible. Darth Vader and Han Solo sound nothing like the original people at all, the rest of the heroes’ voice acting is serviceable at best. The gunplay is great the option to play first person or third person. It’s fun to go shooting with your blasters and Darth Vader shows up only to have a speeder bike save you by crashing into Darth Vader and killing. Its magic moments like that that makes this game special and has me playing with a big dumb smile on my face. However if you’re a competitive gamer into Esports and that entire scene this game won’t do it for you. As its gear toward more fun less competition, so if you want that counter strike strategic shooter you won’t find it here.
Now the Amazon exclusive Steelbook cover its absolutely gorgeous with great artwork. For those looking for Steel book covers they won’t be disappointed. It does come with the regular cover so you get two covers.
In Conclusion Star Wars Battlefront is a fun game. Is it $60 dollars worth of fun? No. This game has too little for $60. I would recommend a buy on sale for $30 or a complete edition with all the DLC. It has its moments but Star Wars Battlefront was ultimately disappointing. When you consider a its predecessors had more content and that was back during the PS2. However there is no denying it’s a fun shooter. If EA can fix all the problems and add a single player campaign in a sequel or something then Battlefront will be a top shooter. Until then we have a good foundation but a weak structure.
*Well done and highly polished game. It's beautiful.
*Immersive game play, like being in the movies
*A variety of game modes
*Classless characters and easy to unlock weapons and upgrades.
*Small number of maps, only 4, that are re-utilized in all the game modes.
*Base game content is weak. Most people will want to play 40 player maps, but there are only 4 (5 with Battle of Jakku).
*PC version is dying fast, hard to find groups at times to play.
*No campaign mode.
*Limited weapons and items.
There are a lot of people who hate on this game. And that, I think, is mostly, and rightly, because EA released the framework for a highly anticipated game, but didn't deliver any worthwhile content. Imagine going to a restaurant, and paying $20 for a steak dinner. They bring you out a plate, your silverware, and a garnish. And you go, wtf, where's the steak, and my potato? The waiter explains to you, that those are extras that you can get for an additional $25. You reluctantly agree, and pay the extra $25 for something you thought was going to be a no-brainer and be part of your steak dinner for $20. But now you've shelled out $45 for that $20 steak dinner. And while it's good and tasty, you feel you've been robbed. If they had just told you it was $45 up front, it would have been easier to stomach, and you wouldn't feel as let down. That's how this is. You pay $60 for a plate and some silverware. Now if you want the actual meat and potato, you need to shell out another $50 for their "DLC".
But I'm not here to judge EA on their practices of making money. I'm here to review the game. And as the game stands, it is well done, there just isn't a whole lot there.
