Star Wars Battlefront II
PS2 Version Is Way Better
I got this game for Christmas thinking it would be great. A mixture of the other reviews and the PS2 Version got me thinking that it would be really good. WRONG! The high point of the entire game was the sound and thats pitiful. It wasnt even original sound. All they did was take some of the star wars songs, packed them into a UMD, added a few guns, and called it a game. When i first got it, i enjoyed it. That lasted two battles. It has 4 control schemes which might be good but its too hard to go through all of them to make a choice of which one you want to use. It has three special campaign wannabees that have you go through a few courses trying to get a high score. It was hard to judge the length because it was one of those games that you could play forever (I dont see why anyone would want to) and it would always be different. I gave the length a five because i couldnt decide and 5 was in the middle. Other than that, everything was a clear-cut decision. Do yourself a favor and dont buy this game.
STAR WARS ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This game rocks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I liked how the first game started off the series so I decided to get the second game. Though when the game came out I was probaly only seven so I wasnt alowed to play these type of games. When I learned a few years later that there was a second game wanted to get it. But I no longer had a Xbox and I had an Xbox 360. I didn't have PS2 either. But I did have a PSP so I got it for the PSP. Even though it would be better on the console it is still pretty cool. The game is fun to play. The instant action is fun to play. Theres other features like where your a rogue clone and you have to kill the rest of your squad. On the instant action they have diffrent modes like capture the flag where you have to get the flag by killing the other teams team members. Theres also a mode where you can hunt and kill the alien creatures on some planets. On nabo you can be a droid and kill the gungans. Or the other way around. On hoth you can be a rebel or a wampa and you try and kill each other. The games really fun. Though it would be better on a console the game is still pretty cool.
Falling just short of greatness.
Battlefront II for the PSP is one of those experiences that somehow ends up being nothing special while also being completley unlike anything else that i have ever played. The graphics are not anything great but they are OLD. I mean this game was like what '05 or '06, but its not like the graphics are hard to look at or anything. The gameplay is nothing special, just your average third person shooter, that ends up with a lot of frame rate drops. The parts that probably keep this game back from reaching its full potention is the fact that there is no story. Sure, there is the galactic conquest but really you're doing nothing but fighting in different areas in random orders. Then, there are the 3 small challenges which only take 20-30 minutes to complete each. This game will provide plenty of fun for the first 6-7 hours, then it'll get boring. Yet, if you let the game sit for long enough and then pick it back up after a couple of weeks you'll be right back in the action and having just as much fun as ever.
Great for any BattleFront Fan!
I just got this game yesterday along with Renegade squadron for my PSP and its AMAZING!! Sure it takes a little while to get used to the Controls but still! A Battlefront game on the PSP its just great. But the only disapointing thing is no rise of the Empire But i also have this game on the Xbox so im Good. But this is still a great game for any Battlefront fan!
In Comparison to the Version on Other Systems.....
When I bought my PSP, this was the first game I bought. I looked at gameplay for it on all systems, so I thought it was going to have (1) a campaign mode. I know that a UMD can only hold about 1.8 GB of memory, but I at least thought that they could have made room for a campaign (2)not as many maps. Looking at gameplay, I saw alot of more maps like Geonosis, Utapa, Corosunt, (my spelling isn't the best) and many more that weren't on the PSP version. I was dissapointed. I thought the graphics were good, compared to other games like it. Overall, it was just a cut-down version of the game on other systems. I hope you found this review helpful
Good, But not Great.
This game was good, but it lacked a lot of the spark you got from battlefront 2 on the Xbox or ps2. First of all, there are barely even half as many maps as there are on either the ps2 and xbox versions. Then there are the space battles, on which if you choose to do assault mode, you can't go inside the enemy's ship to blow up shields, guns, etc. The graphics are almost as good as on the ps2, but the controls are a little bad, since you can't preform various important actions such as rolling, ducking, reloading your gun whenever you want, and tracking down other enemy infantry. A pro is that you do get to do Mos Eisley assault, and you can do a Imperial Enforcer and Galactic Conquest, but it lacks some of the other single player modes on the other consoles' versions of the game. Overall, it's a good game, but it misses out on many of the other features on the xbox and ps2.
this is a Grrrrrreat game
I really like this game for the ps2, and I thought "hey maybe it would be good for the psp". It is. The controls are great. There is like 4 different control schemes, so you can find the one that fits you the best. When you look at 1p mode it may look like you don't have a lot of different games modes, but for galactic conquest you can choose from like 5 different types of conquest modes. The graphics are really good for a psp shooter. The sound / sfx are good. this would be a great game for a road trip. I'm usually not a big fan of star wars games; but this one made me a fan. I would recommend this to any one. Especially for the low price. If you liked this game from the ps2, and you get this game, it wont disappoint you, or if you just like star wars/shooter games.
This game is awsome. It's like a war game in starwars mode.The psp version also comes with three bonus challanges not included with the other systems. I killed the Emperor with a granade as a rebel soildier. That was pretty stupid. He was running around naboo with a lightsaber ant just ran back and forth and didn't attack.The object of the game is to take control of the galaxy by winning wars on planets.You can win battles by killing all the enemy's soildiers or capture all the command post.If you're main ship runss into the enemy's ship you go into a space battle.You're sent in a small ship to defend you're main ship. You attack the parts of the enemy ship. when you destroy enough parts you win the battle. The graphics are ok on psp but it' not as good like ps2 or Xbox.But it's not played on a tv it's on a small screen
this is the best star wars game for the psp
this game is wow , awesome , you can fight in tha galaxy like a clone trooper , battle droid , rebel soldier or imperial soldier , the story mode of this game its exclusive for the psp , i like a lot this game , because the controls are easy and its fun to play , when you play this game you can stop to playing , ITS AWESOME
The Force Unleashed aint Nothing
I can't believe some people compare the battlefront series, and the force unleashed cause battlfront totally owns the force unleashed in every category. Battlefront has great replay value. The graphic are great for psp. Instant action and galactic conquest rock. The game includes somewhat squad based action, like the battlefield series, but the fun of seeing all your favorite star wars characters and soldier classes in the action. The space combat is amazing. I love being in a Tie Fighter blowing everything in my path to kingdom come. The game, well on psp, dosen't have a story, which kinda sucks, but hey, its still rocks. The game uses a class system, like stormtroopers, shock troopers, and engineers. You pick and fight sympol as that. And sometimes, simplicity is the spice of life.
