Star Wars: Battlefront II is a sequel to a tactical action game – 2004’s Star Wars: Battlefront, inspired by popular productions such as Battlefield 1942 and Operation Flashpoint. Developed by Pandemic studios (who also brought us such games as Full Spectrum Warrior or the Battlezone series), Star Wars: Battlefront II features large-scale battles set in the Star Wars Universe, created by a famous filmmaker George Lucas.

Plot

The story focuses upon the war between the Galactic Empire and the Rebel Alliance. The player assumes the role of a veteran soldier who participates in a number of military undertakings. Single player mode in Battlefront II is much more extensive when compared to its predecessor - Battlefront II features a system of non-linear missions with a strong emphasis on the backstory surrounding all the depicted events.

Mechanics

The PC / Windows version of the game includes 12 different planets, among which one can find ones like Mustafar and Utapau, shown in Revenge of the Sith, third episode of the Star Wars film franchise. Another interesting feature offered by the game is the multiplayer mode, which allows up to 64 player to participate in the large-scale battles set in the Star Wars Universe. The battles take place not only on planets’ surface but also in mid-air, in the intergalactic space and inside massive star cruisers (Tantive IV – Leia’s ship, the Death Star, etc.). Apart from infantry units, one can see in action many war machines – e.g. classic X-Wings fighters, TIE Fighters, powerful Star Destroyers and YT-1300 freighters. Moreover, we get to see the legendary Jedi Knights wielding their lightsabers and using the Force, however they are not as invincible as one may expect.
