Star Wars Battlefront (EA)

star wars battlefront ea

Games, like all forms of media entertainment, have expectations and as part of life, sometimes our expectations crash and burn. Star Wars: Battlefront 2 was one of my favorite Star Wars games and one of the games that got me the Battlefield franchise. You can imagine my joy when I found out the makers of Battlefield were making there own Battlefront game…

EA’s Battlefront first and foremost has no actual story mode. It stays exactly within the original trilogy of Star Wars , The Empire Strikes Back , and Return of the Jedi . If you got the plain $60 copy, you essentially got a game with a small hand full of repetitive maps played with basic game modes. The game looks great and sounds great and the gameplay itself is solid but my friend Autobot and I sat down and played every mode this game had to offer in about 3 hours. The heroes, to which each side has only 3 each, are clunky but wreck infantry easily enough. There was a huge lack of vehicular combat, let a lone being able to seamlessly jump in. Flying was serviceable but clunky.

Let’s keep in mind however, this game was released in 2015, around the time The Force Awakens was coming to theaters. While I have access to the DLC maps and two bonus heroes, just from sight I can say it doesn’t seem like much considering what the season pass originally cost. Finally, we come to epic problem: because this is a strictly multiplayer game with a bad reputation to begin with, it’s hard as hell to get a game going. I waited 10 minutes to play a game at 1:00 pm on a Tuesday in 2019 and got nowhere. As far as I can tell at the moment, it’s nearly a dead game which is why I can’t recommend it at all, even for dirt cheap. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
