Eurogamer - Martin Robinson Not Recommended ~ Not Recommended DICE goes big in a Call of Duty-baiting package that's as maddening, uneven and spectacular as the Star Wars films themselves. PS4

Windows Central - Jez Corden Review-In-Progress ~ Review-In-Progress If there's a line to cross, EA didn't just step over it, they blew it up with the death Star. XB1

PC Gamer - Tyler Wilde Review-In-Progress ~ Review-In-Progress A fun campaign, over-complicated progression, and a strange multiplayer flagship. PC

Hobby Consolas - Borja Abadie - Spanish 91 ~ 91 / 100 DICE, Criterion and Motive join forces to give us a game worthy of the Force. They have learned the lesson and, this time, we have the Star Wars game we all deserve, with enough variety and a lot of content for every kind of player. PS4

We Got This Covered - Jon Hueber 90 ~ 4.5 / 5 stars With Star Wars Battlefront II, DICE and EA have righted most of the wrongs from the first game, and have created one of the best Star Wars games ever. PS4

Press Start - Toby Berger 80 ~ 8 / 10 Battlefront II is everything the first should have been: it’s an immersive, fantastical experience with a heck of a lot of content to venture through. However, the game’s Star Card system is still problematic, and the inconsistencies seen in multiplayer, alongside the lack of in-game voice chat, pull it back from fully reaching its huge potential. Whilst the single player campaign is a let down in many aspects, it doesn't bring down the much improved multiplayer portion of the game. PS4

GameSpace - Damien Gula 80 ~ 8 / 10 So, does Star Wars Battlefront II fulfill the Star Wars fantasy? I believe it does, but it's a very Empire Strikes Back fantasy; it's not all lightsabers and Force-using. Sometimes it takes a blaster or two to get the job done or some fancy flying. It may require some frustrating moments of Dagoba-style training. At the end of the day, no matter who gets frozen in carbonite or loses a hand, you've got your squad to think about. Only together can you overcome the odds stacked against you. PS4

COGconnected - James Paley 86 ~ 86 / 100 Depending on what you're looking for in a Star Wars game, Battlefront II might be exactly what you need. It's clear that the developers have been paying close attention to player feedback, as this feels like a significant improvement over the previous entry in the series. PS4

Spaziogames - Matteo Bussani - Italian 85 ~ 8.5 / 10 Star Wars Battlefront II is a game rich of contents and extremely close to the Star Wars Universe. Graphics are impressive and the gameplay is simple and solid. Iden is not the character we expected, but the campaign has the power to brings all the Star Wars Experience directly to the player, taking him to the different planets and giving him eventually a limited perspective of what happened from Episode VI to Episode VII.

God is a Geek - Nicola Ardron 80 ~ 8 / 10 Star Wars Battlefront II is a good video game, delivering a bigger and more detailed game than its predecessor. Much of the conversation will be around the loot box economy, but if you can look past that you will find a game that is as close to Star Wars magic as you will find. XB1

GamesRadar+ - Andy Hartup 80 ~ 4 / 5 stars A very strong multiplayer offering tarnished by overly complicated character progression, and a lavish, beautiful story campaign lacking in substance or subtlety.

Gameblog - Camille Allard - French 80 ~ 8 / 10 Star Wars Battlefront II draw a line on the past of the licence. Complete overhaul of the space combat system, disappearance of the walker mode, addition of classes, big content at the launch, various objectives, addition of a solo campaign. Everything we could have expected in the first one is finally here. Only the cash shop and the feeling of shooting (little bit spineless) are a problem. Despite that we have in front of us a complete Star Wars game, especially with best SW space combats since X-Wing serie. PS4

Twinfinite - Hayes Madsen 80 ~ 4 / 5 Star Wars Battlefront II offers a sizable improvement over the first game in almost every way. The campaign is short but well-paced and enjoyable, and multiplayer provides a robust offering with smooth and frenetic battles. You’d be hard pressed to find anything in video games that looks and sounds more like Star Wars, as the game absolutely nails those aspects, and is even visually stunning more often than not. I do hope the issues with loot crates, unlockable heroes, and resources can be ironed out, as they’re a bit more intrusive than I care for right now. Even so, Battlefront II provides a meaty experience for Star Wars fans, and feels much more in line with the original Battlefront games than its predecessor did. XB1

IGN - Tom Marks 70 (Provisional) ~ 7 / 10 But in terms of delivering on that Star Wars fantasy, jumping from corner to corner of the galaxy to see as much as it has to offer, Battlefront 2 succeeds in a very fun way. I’m just not sure there’s enough here to keep me interested for very long. PS4, XB1, PC

USgamer - Kat Bailey 70 ~ 3.5 / 5 stars Star Wars Battlefront 2 is one of the most enjoyable multiplayer games of 2017, especially if you like Star Wars. It's also more flawed than it should be. Battlefront 2 doesn't deserve to be wholly defined by loot boxes, but it's inescapable given the impact they have on some of the core modes. This is why you don't tie gameplay to microtransactions. XB1

Sirus Gaming - Lexuzze Tablante 65
(Provisional) ~ 6.5 / 10 The campaign alone is, sadly, difficult to recommend. Even if I got hooked with Star Wars Battlefront II's plot, the shortcoming of its gameplay diversity in the campaign is utterly a setback. While I have yet to experience and play Star Wars Battlefront II's multiplayer and its loot crate system, although the disadvantage is evident, it is still better to keep my judgement at bay until I get experience it firsthand. Don't let the hate flow through us, it is not the Jedi way. The score I gave Star Wars Battlefront II is temporary and this will change depending on how the multiplayer experience turns out. PS4

Stevivor - Steve Wright 65 (Provisional) ~ 6.5 / 10 Unlike a lack of response (or urgency) after the launch of Star Wars: Battlefront, I truly hope that lessons are learned quickly and implemented before Battlefront 2's player base walks away in protest. Again. XB1

Shacknews - Greg Burke 60 ~ 6 / 10 Star Wars: Battlefront II is a pretty good game and you're going to get it if you're a fan of Star Wars, no matter what anyone says. I'm just thankful that the game is an improvement over the first attempt and is incredibly fun solo, or with friends online. The loot crates diminish its value greatly, and it's a shame EA forces them down your throat as part of the core gameplay, but the game looks gorgeous and is enjoyable to play. Even if you’re not a fan of Star Wars, Battlefront 2 still a decent game. Just please don’t spend real life money on EA’s loot crates. PS4

Telegraph - Sam White 60 ~ 3 / 5 stars Fabulous fan-service marred by commercial concerns.

GameSpot - Alessandro Fillari 60 ~ 6 / 10 The sequel to DICE's 2015 Star Wars game makes some big changes to the formula, but not all are for the better. PS4, XB1, PC

Player.One - Bob Fekete 60 ~ 6 / 10 Star Wars Battlefront 2 has a compelling story and that's it.

PCGamesN - Kirk McKeand 60 ~ 6 / 10 Star Wars Battlefront II houses a decent single-player campaign and good multiplayer, but, like the otherwise slick design of its multiplayer maps, that accomplishment is often obscured by distractions. Normally, my brain blocks out in-game monetisation, letting me enjoy the game for what it is. Battlefront II changes that because spenders get a real advantage here. You cannot help but notice it encroaching on everything, plastered all over the game’s convoluted, drawn-out progression system. PC

TrustedReviews - Brett Phipps 60 ~ 3 / 5 stars Star Wars Battlefront 2 is a great game spoiled by a terrible business model. DICE and EA are going to be under a huge amount of pressure not just to tweak, but completely overhaul the metagame or face an even bigger fan backlash than they have already. XB1

AusGamers - Kosta Andreadis 60 ~ 6 / 10 There's a good game buried somewhere beneath too many cons. I just hope that Motive, Criterion, and DICE can right the starship before too many players launch their escape pods.

Those 9 points make a big difference. I was going to exchange Evil Within 2 for it, but now I'm leaning towards nah.

You see how long it was going to take to unlock one character? Something like 40 hours. EA apparently reduced it down to 10 BUT I think that was only for the Reviews

EA response on Reddit has -300,000 down votes

They want to to grind to unlock sh*t with said credits but then limit how many you can earn in a certain amount of time? Looks like I'm skipping this one.

Lootboxes have ruined gaming in 2017.


I'll stick to old fashioned DLC in my f!ghting games instead.



Shame b/c 2017 had so much promise with Ni-Oh, Nier, etc...

EA gonna EA. Not surprised. n*ggas have been on this microtransaction wave for a minute now. And I ain't talking about the businesses, but the consumers.

EA fu*ked up by going all in instead of slowly taking the money out of their pockets.
