Star Wars Battlefront 2 - reviews round-up

Star Wars Battlefront 2 is yet another EA title full of controversies - but this time players were really furious. Microtransactions and lootboxes once again make us grind for long hours, if we don't want to pay more than a game's retail cost.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 will be available soon, on November 17th. Our review is on the way, but before you read it, take a look at the first ratings. And be careful, if you want to buy the game just for the story campaign!

Star Wars Battlefront 2. EA and DICE decided to lower the prices of characters

There are first reviews and Star Wars Battlefront 2 seems like a good title, even though it has awful micropayments. Not everyone hate them, so the reviews are diversified. For now, the average score is as you see below:

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.

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.

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.

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.

The ratings are as follows:

  • Hobby Consolas 91/100
  • Areajugones 90/100
  • We Got This Covered 90/100
  • COGconnected 90/100
  • Spaziogames 85/100
  • Generación Xbox 85/100
  • Press Start 80/100
  • GamesRadar+ 80/100
  • TheSixthAxis 80/100
  • Gameblog 80/100
  • GamingTrend 80/100
  • God is a Geek 80/100
  • Twinfinite 80/100
  • USgamer 70/100
  • IGN 70/100
  • Stevivor 65/100
  • Shacknews 60/100
  • Telegraph 60/100
  • GameSpot 60/100
  • Player.One 60/100
  • TrustedReviews 60/100
  • AusGamers 60/100
  • PCGamesN 60/100

Let's hope this bad practice which is destroying the game will eventually end. Publishers and developers probably won't stop, though, and they will take microtransactions even further. Those are dangerous times for our hobby.
