Title
This is a game I feel is better on the move, mainly because I've played the sequel on handheld which I feel enhances the experience for personal reasons.

I guess if I had a problem with this game, it's that it can feel repetitive since the only thing that changes from battle to battle is the level design of each map as you play capture the flag against the Ai. That said, it does take a while for the novelty to wear off thanks to aggressive Ai as well as you playing as one of three fractions across two campaigns, said factions having a wide selection of soldiers/droids to choose from to battle with and there being plenty of opportunities to switch out these selections as the battle progresses. Occasionally you'll have the opportunity to have a character from the films appear on the battlefield, however you don't get to play as them which is a bit of a disappointment. Like most capture the flag games, it's best played with a friend as that's what the game was clearly designed for.

It's not the best Star Wars has to offer, however it's miles better than anything Disney has made over the years which counts towards something.

Even with the criminal lack of space combat (which was thankfully rectified by the sequel) the first Battlefront under Pandemics charge is among the best Star Wars games, period. Personally I find it a much better and more open game in many ways compared to the sequel and I think the level design is a lot better. While the sequel definitely improved many of the games irksome flaws like lack of a way to play as the heroes, limiting certain over powered units (looking at you Droidekas) to un-lockables, and the annoying anti-vehicle grenades that did diddly dick against armored vehicles, this game always felt like a genuine and utter slug fest on several maps. And honestly for a game that's supposed to make you feel like a hapless soldier in the star wars verse, it definitely gets the combat right.

Some of my favorite memories from this game are just trying to beat back the tide of Droids on the center of Bespin Platforms, and just when you think the tide has turned and you're about to charge the separatists hold outs on the opposite side of the map, 2 or 3 droidekas round the corner and pin you and your hapless clones down and the cycle repeats. The claustrophobic corridor shootouts are definitely some of my favorite moments from this game and Pandemic hit the nail on the head in that regard. While the second one vastly improves on the formula, I still prefer the first.

Compared to the sequel, this game feels very bare, but it's still a nice, fun game. There are also some things I wish carried over to Battlefront II, such as enemies being able to use heroes, and the B1 battle droid being playable. Also Bespin. Bespin was so tight.

Title
This game brings back so much nostalgia. So there was a time from when I was like in 6th grade until 8th grade where I was completely obsessed with everything Star Wars, I had all the movies on DVD, tons of action figures, encyclopedias on the history and expanded universe, and of course many of the video games. I remember wanting this as soon as I heard about it and the funny thing is my dad bought it for us on Ebay but it was the PAL version so it wouldn't work on my PS2, but we eventually ended up getting the right version right around the time I finished 7th grade. This game ate up a good portion of that Summer, I played the hell out of this game over and over, this was when I used to be into the prequels so I played as the droids all the time. This was a pretty fun game, I enjoyed all the planets in this, the vehicles, the different classes, and the original John Williams music in this. Sure it did get a bit repetitive, and there weren't a lot of modes in this, plus this was before we had online so I mostly played against the AI which was pretty awful at times. But it still brings back tons of good memories and is a solid capture the flag style shooter. But Battlefront II would improve on this so much and almost made this game obsolete, but it still has some good maps that weren't in the sequel and is one of the better Star Wars games.

*john williams soundtrack*
The original battlefront for me is the best battlefield game ever released. With half a dozen of classes you can pick and a ton of iconic maps to play in, it never gets repetitive. The maps feature amazing level design, filled with choke points in which the chaos created always results in fun. The low difficulty curve means that its a pretty casual game that everyone can get into.

The sound is fantastic, as they seemingly used the same score and sounds of the weapons from the movies. The weapons feel powerful to use, though a bit unreliable when it comes to aim and recoil.

I never had the chance to play this one on online, but playing it in a versus mode against my brother with teams made entirely of bots besides us two was really fun. Of course each one of was would rack up 70+ kills by the end of the game, so it ended up being a duel on the battlefield.

There is a campaign, but it just basically takes you in a space conquest throughout all the maps available in the game.

Its a really great enjoyable experience, and never did the series ever got back to this level.

    yeah, it doesn't have as many features as #2. but I think the level design is better. you can't beat rhen var harbor, bespin platforms or dune sea. plus, #2 removed all non-space flying except for hoth.

    for some reason, i'd play this one more than the sequel - even though the sequel seemed to improve in almost every area + you could play as jedis. however, i loved the maps in this game a little more and the AI didn't seem as... dumb? i don't know, it just had a slight edge to the second one. but both games are still really fun to play in 2022 on a dusty ps2.

    You don't need the sequel. This one is just superior in every way.
