Video game effects are incredible!
12 September 2008 | by jerekraSee all my reviews

Warning: I will be basing my comment of Battlefront on the X-Box version of this game since that is the version I have the most experience with.

Battlefront is a pretty basic video game. It is similar to other first person shooters like Halo, but the fact that it is Star Wars related gives it an edge over most other games similar to this. Sorry for being biased, I just love Star Wars.

You can choose from being one of four different armies, CIS, Republic, Rebels, or the Empire. You can then play as one of several different types of soldiers from that army. I prefer the CIS because you can be all of the different droids, Superbattledroids, Droidekas, Snipers, Missle Launcher droids, and droids that shoot mines. But each army is good. Also each army has one type of sniper, missle launcher, and mine shooter so whichever army you pick will consist of similar type soldiers that are in each army, just different looking.

You then battle against the opposing army to whom you are using. If you play in the Galactic Conquest style then the point is to defeat all of the enemies on the opposing side to gain control of the planet. Once you have taken control of an entire system of planets you have conquered the galaxy and beaten the game. Otherwise you can play Instant Action and just choose which planet you want to play on.

The controls overall are not bad at all. You just move around and use the map on the screen to gage where you are going. Red dots on the map represent enemies and green dots are on your side. Its pretty simple to aim your weapons and fire, just it may take some getting used to using the map on the screen.

You also get to use Vehicles in this game. You get the chance to ride in such historic Star Wars Vehicles as the AT-AT Walker, Snowspeeder, Speeder bikes, Spiderdroid, CIS Tank, Republic Walkers, Tauntains, and many others. Getting to ride on the land going vehicles is awesome. Especially riding in the AT-AT Walker since that is such a devastating vehicle to opponents and nothing can stop it seemingly. Flying in vehicles is not the same. There are no space going levels in this game so if you fly in a vehicle you will just be flying overhead a battle. This would be fixed a little in Battlefront two.

The levels you play on in this game are amazing. They really look the way they are supposed to and look just how they did in the movies. You can play on Hoth, Endor, Tantooine, Yavin, Bespin, Kashaaek, Naboo, Coruscant, Geonosis, and many others. Any true Star Wars fan will find the levels to be awesome and just like being in the movies. It also is similar to the movies in that you can recreate battles from the films, like the Battle of Hoth or the Battle of Endor. That is always fun because you can change the outcome possibly.

Music, like in all Star Wars games, sounds just like it did in the movies. That is good because how good would Star Wars be without the music? Not as good I would say but still good. So it is great to hear classic Star Wars songs while fighting.

So this is a must play for all Star Wars fans. Play it and you will not be able to put it down. Highly recommend.
