After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

T What do these ratings mean?

            Star Wars Battlefront II is one of the best Star Wars games ever created.  Battlefront II is the sequel to the best selling Star Wars game, Star Wars Battlefront. There are a lot of improvements to the game from the first one. For example, you can play as a Jedi or a Sith. People under the Jedi category are: Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, Mace Windu, Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Ki-Adi-Mundi, Princess Leia, Chewbacca, and Alis Sucaki. In the Sith category there are: Anakin Skywalker, Darth Vader, The Emperor, General Grevies, Jango Fett, Boba Fett, Darth Maul, and Count Dooku. You can play as each of these people throughout the game on different levels or play as all of them at the level of Moi-Eliea by choosing assault after selecting the level.

            Another change is the section hunt. This allows you to play as characters from the movies like Ewoks, Wookies, Geonosians, Tuskiens, Jawas, and Snow Yeattes. In hunt mode the player can choose to fight with or along side the natives of the planets. On Endor, play as the Ewoks or the Imperial Sharpshooter. On Hoth, fight as any Rebel Alliance Solider against the Snow Yeattes. On Moi-Eliea, you play as the Tuskiens or the Jawas. On the level Geonosians, you play as the Clone Sharpshooter or the Geonosians. Also on Kssiay, you choose to be the Wookies of the Meakentes Guards.

            Another improvement is, you are able to fight in space as well as on the ground. Space battles are a major improvement because in the first Battlefront the air vehicles could not do special maneuvers or fly upside down.  The motions are not as blocky when flying either, unless you put in a cheat called “low-res solider.” If you really worked at it and did not crash into the ground, then there is a special way to fly upside down for a few seconds but in Battlefront II you can fly upside down for several minutes before turning right side up. But there are still a couple of things wrong with the space battles. You can not highjack certain enemy’s ships like Alliance Assault Craft, Droid Gunship, Imperial Shuttle, and the Republic Gunship. Also, these ships can not do special defense maneuvers.

            The awards part of the game is better compared to the first one. Now in the second game you can get the same awards along with others that increase your character but these are activated if you reach legendary status with that award which is 64 times of getting that award.

The bad part of the game is if you don’t have Internet then the game can get boring after awhile of just playing instant action because you have beaten Rise Of The Empire 500 times. You need to have Internet to really enjoy the game.

So overall I give this game an A-.
