My Top Ten Xbox Games #8: Star Wars: Battlefront II

As a fan of Star Wars, there was no way I couldn’t get this game. It was like that Battlefield 1942 game I heard about but with light-sabers and the force.

Basically that was the concept and it worked well. You could play as low level storm troopers, Jedi, Sith, even Wookies were fair play. Some more balanced than others, but lots of fan service especially the Jedi and Sith characters to play as.

The single player mode was a decent affair. Lots of action, good variety in missions, and probably the better of the two modes when it came to ship combat.

The multi-player had it’s problems, but it was a blast. Being a Jedi, or Sith made you feel over-powered, but you had to earn it, and it was a real challenge to beat one of the juggernauts.  The connection speeds could’ve been a bit faster, and even after the game was super-old you still had to pay for a map pack that would kick you out of certain matchmakings.
