Title
Shoot wide
I dont understand how they could take such a big stepdown gameplaywise from the first game, and at the same time get more people playing this game.

The game looks pretty bad for a 2005 title, though that is in part excusable due to the huge amount of enemies on screen. In terms of sound its star wars, which means that its almost impossible to do wrong.

Gameplaywise the game has a lot of issues. First, the shooting mechanics have really take a step back, and they feel really clunky and awkward to control. Its not an enjoyable shooter at all. The addition of heroes really breaks the tight balance of the game as well, and its never fun to fight against them nor is the swordplay precise enough to be fun to fight with them. Its just a terrible addition alround. The space battles are also another addition, which play pretty terribly in terms of controls and repetitiveness.

The first game is epic, this has way too many flaws to look past. Still the amount of chaos and destruction in some of the missions almost make me forget about this, until i have to play it.

Title
This was the first game of my life where I really felt like I could lose thousands of hours in the game. I always wanted to mod it but I had it on PS2. The vast amounts of game modes and the replay value of the campaign was one of the highest I've ever encountered. Instant action with friends was always fun (especially heroes vs villains on Mos Eisley) but one of my favorite game modes was the board-game-feeling Galactic Conquest where your goal is to capture every planet by earning a victory on every map. Awesome game and I wish it ran better on PC today.

Title
Well, this was an improvement over Star Wars: Battlefront, not by much as all they really did to fix that game was make the Ai much better as well as finish the prequel campaign to include the battles in revenge of the Sith which obviously weren't present in its predecessor. You can read what I said about that game for more info in what I think about these two titles but to summarise, the story campaign is faithful to the six films they're based on, the capture the flag mechanic is addictive as hell made better here with the different classes and vehicles to choose from and the presentation is really good for a mid-00s game.

Title
The best game of all time baby!
The most Star Wars action ever put to a PS2 and it's still so much fucking fun.

The space battles are better than in the dedicated Star Wars space/ship battling games, and I'm saying that as a big fan of the Rogue Squadron games. The ground combat can be chaotic, when indoors claustrophobic, and when outdoors just outright epic in scale. This feeling is made even better by the introduction of modded maps and the like.

The story mode has a campaign that's a little heartbreaking too, the monologue before Operation Knightfall will probably be engrained into my mind forever and I am thankful for it.

A must play for any fan of the franchise or any 3rd person shooter/dogfight simulation fan.

Title
A hard game to review for me considering the modding community has improved it in nearly every possible way, in my opinion at least, the core game feels slightly inferior to the first. Still SWBFII is arguably one of the best Star Wars games of the aughts and the addition of Space Combat is incredibly welcome if, un-realized in certain aspects. The only thing I miss is how much of a slug fest some of the moments in the first game were, the omission of Bespin Platforms, one of the best maps of the series as far as I'm concerned, is pure sacrilege.

Title
Simplistic and dated, but fun as fuck. Nice maps, and an amazing experience for the Star Wars I used to be. I loved the Order 66 mission, the only one I really cared about to be honest, otherwise I'd just play Instant Action.

    I'll second that Saga Edition mod. There are plenty of cool mods, including some major ones still being worked on, but if you just want one simple mod that adds more excellent content and still provides some of the best gameplay experiences, that's for sure the one to get.

    This one was a significant downgrade to the first game in almost every way; clunky maps, crappy UI, tedious campaign, overcomplicated controls... There's just no reason to play it, unless you really love the Jedi/Sith playability. For me, simply playing as one of the troopers or droids was what made me enjoy the first game so much.

    This game is so badly designed, like, all your teammates die so quickly and you're left on your own to try and capture a point against infinitely respawning enemies. The first game is infinitely better.
