I never played the first Battlefront game so I can not compare how this one differs from that one. But I can say Star Wars Battlefront II is awesome.
The graphics are stunning! You can be your favorite character and pick your favorite Star Wars vehicle to pilot it.
The Order 66 comes in and the rest of the game is about how the Empire came to rise and fall.
I found the game a bit confusing at first, sometimes even hard, but it was always fun. Once I got the hang of it, it was pretty easy to understand. Some battles I still have a hard time with but that is part of the fun.
I found the characters were easy to control with the remote.
It is rated for Teens, but an older child could enjoy it too. The thing I like is there isn't any blood.
The space battles are a lot of fun.
I like how the battle in the battlefields are very close to the movies.
My personal favorite evil character to be is Darth Maul.
It's also neat to be able to go to Mustafar and the Jedi Temple. Like I said before the graphics in these two battlefields are just great.
I feel this game is a lot of fun. Star Wars fans would really enjoy it. My family plays this game quite often and we have a blast everytime. The good thing is the going price for this game is very reasonable. You can usually find it for $20. I feel that is a real good deal for a really fun game.
