Star Wars Battlefront Impressions
It's so good.
Well... if you're a Star Wars fan it is. If you aren't a Star Wars fan I don't know if the gameplay is anything groundbreaking enough to recommend it to you.
But if you are a fan this is an amazing game. Everything comes together to make it feel like you're in a real Star Wars battle. The graphics and sound design are simply amazing. It's spot on.
Now that the full version is released I finally got to play around with all the gameplay modes. My favorite two are Squadron and Heroes vs Villains.
In Squadron mode you are never a trooper on the ground, you spawn in an aircraft and you're always in the air. It's so much fun. It makes me crave another Rogue Squadron game. I'm already thinking that Squadron mode will be my preferred mode of play before too long. I already love it that much.
Heroes vs Villains is a really cool set-up too. It's a 6v6 match where three people on each team spawn as heroes. The hero characters are single elimination and whichever team destroys the other team's heroes first wins. It's both a fun gameplay mode and a cool way to get to be hero characters much more often than in other modes.
My brother and I also started dabbling in the Co-op challenges. I'm going to wait until we dig in more to write much about them but so far we've had a fun time together.
Honestly, if you are a serious Star Wars fan go buy this game. I don't know what other advice to give you.
