I had no idea there was that much silicon in Japan. But it only makes the balance that much more impressive, doesn't it?

Well, Gamergate has spilled over into the mainstream media and the coverage appears to be nearly uniformly dreadful. Take " What is Gamergate, and What Does It Say About Gender In Video Games? " by David Konnow as an example.  It appears that the writer has done little to no...

T What do these ratings mean?

    The Star Wars universe is vast indeed and to be able to play around in it is any Star Wars kid’s idea of a good time.  Whether you want to rip the arms of some storm troopers as a Wookie Warrior or sit back and snipe some battle droids as a clone sharpshooter, Star Wars Battlefront 2 delivers fast, intense game play. 

    If you are familiar with Star Wars Battlefront the first, then you will find yourself in familiar territory.  The roots of these games are the same;  Capture command posts, destroy your enemies, you know, the good stuff.  The single player mode had a solid story that takes you through Revenge of the Sith all the way to the beginning of The Empire Strikes Back as a clone trooper of the Empire.  What makes or breaks a Star Wars game is the story and how it plays in with the rest of the cannon so for me, this game did well. 
   
    New additions were thrown in to tickle your fancy.  You can now play as various heros which seriously tips the scales of a battle.  I was once walking along with my blaster rifle, looking for some rebels, when Luke friggin Skywalker stares me down.  I imagine that my little storm trooper needed to change out of his plastic suit.

    Another one of these additions are space battles.  It seems that they were tacked on at the last minute.  The idea is certainly a good one but I wanted more than what they gave me.  There isn’t really much to these battles: get into a ship, fly around, shoot at enemies, cripple the enemy capitol ship, or land in there hanger with some pals and destroy some systems.  These battles seem to end to quickly and they are boring.  I like the idea of landing in the hanger and fighting in the ship but I want a ship to explore not a hanger and some rooms. 

    The online play was not solid but there is fun to be had.  Playing conquest with your friends in the Death Star or on the streets of Mos Eisley.  It’s fast and fun but cannot measure up to other, more developed online experiences. 

    Overall, this game is a good addition to the Star Wars video game collection.  Pick it up for some fast, intense, storm trooper fragging.
