This is my first Star Wars game that I’ve ever played, don’t get me wrong, Im a huge Star Wars fan, but I haven’t been attracted by any of them before until I saw the trailer for Star Wars Battlefront.
Multiplayer is very much the meat of the game as there is no singleplayer story at all, with nine dedicated modes that you can play either solo, with others or offline. However, you’d be foolish to try and play Star Wars Battlefront truly alone, as these game types are more tuned to co-op than lonewolfing. I played mostly the mode Blast, which is like Team Deathmatch, 2 teams go against each other and first to 100 kills wins. The first thing I noticed when I first got into a multiplayer game were the graphics! I was almost speechless, the graphics were some of the best I’ve ever seen on an multiplayer game. It looks really, really beautiful!
I didn’t even care about going around and killing enemies at first, I just wanted to explore the maps and like sit down at some parts and only observe the graphics of what was in front of me it was that good. The sounds of this game was also incredible… I had surround sound on and it was truly a joy to my ears. I also tested the sound with headphones and it was just as amazing… Every time a grenade goes off and throws a Stormtrooper or rebel flailing into the air; every time an A-Wing crashes into the ground metres from my position; every time The Emperor or Boba Fett takes to the battlefield to wipe out the rebel scum; the part of me that’s eternally a ten-year-old Star Wars fan wants to jump up and cheer.
Another mode is Survival, which is you (and a buddy) facing off against 15 waves of enemies. Sure, you’ve played horde modes before, but Battlefront spices up the formula by adding things like vehicles, drop-pods containing power-ups, and a limited lives system instead of infinite respawns. It’s here, rather perversely, that hardcore shooter players will find the most rewards as Hard mode and above are a genuine challenge.
The other 8 Multiplayer modes were:

In Hero Hunt, one player will experience the thrill of playing as an iconic Star Wars Battlefront Hero or Villain, facing off against ground troops from the opposing faction. Want to play as the Hero? Take them out and you’ll get your chance, but remember, once you become the Hero the hunt is on.
The gameplay it self was pretty good, the maps were big enough and dynamic but disappointingly few, the balance was nice but I wish they could have had more weapons to choose from. After 8 hours I had unlocked almost everything. So the game has some issues to work on.. but overall the Star Wars Battlefront game captured that Star Wars feeling so good, it really feels like you are in the movies exploring the environments while playing. Every star Wars fan will truly enjoy this game from the soundtracks to the costumes and to the gameplay.
This was An immersive Star Wars game, and I will be looking out for some more Star Wars game in the future for sure.
