Battlefront is a team shooter game that uses a Star Wars format for the characters, worlds and story. Like Halo, Battlefront offers has very responsive gameplay. This action shooter alllows you to roam around vast worlds from the Star Wars Episodes 1-6 such as Naboo, Hoth, Endor, Jabbas Palace. You can play the campaign mode with the rebels, empire, republic, or CIS. Or choose to take on a friends and choose three modes of multiplayer action. I think this is a very good game. It offers lots of visual stimuation. Not only are the worlds expansive, detailed, and reminiscent of the classic movies that everyone has falen in love with on time or another, but is also chaotic and intense. My favorite part of the game, the reason why I am writing about it today is its incentive to kick ass. If you do good and are the first to kill ten people you get to play as the hero of that level. Depending on what side you play with (rebels, empire etc..) you get to be a hero or villain (darth maul, luke skywalker, vader etc, etc.). The game offers all the powers these characters have in the game. These characters are also much faster and allow for an amazing sense of flow. It only takes one blow from a lightsaber to kill someone, so raking up a high kill count in a short time is no diffcult task. Although the game is not very innovative in its game play, the fact is it doesnt really need to be. It is quite functional and wasnt trying to reinvent the shooting action type game it is. It was bringing a really good concept for a video game and mixing it with starwars and giving all kinds of options to play. I understand I my be blinded a little bit by the fact that its starwars and if it wasnt it probably wouldnt hold my attention for as long as it did. But nevertheless the game did its job and quite well might I add. So I would surely recommend this game to anyone whos ever enjoyed starwars.
