I know this isn’t a book and doesn’t necessarily relate very well to books but over Christmas I played with Robert the new Battlefront game. Back on the PlayStation 2 we owned and played for hours both the Star Wars Battlefront, and Battlefront 2. We especially enjoyed the campaign and galactic conquest modes. I’ve played with various people on dozens of co-op split screen games, mostly in campaign modes.
So when we started on the new Battlefront we where surprised that there was NO campaign, NO galactic conquest, and a very limited split screen mode. Robert and I had played every level of co-op in about an hour and a half. The game is beautiful with rich environments, easy and intuitive controls. The vehicles are impressive and fun. I especially like the speeders how I really felt like I was on the edge of control. All focused on the original star wars trilogy. Everything about the game feels good and authentic.
Just without a Story or Campaign mode, the new Battlefront doesn’t try and tell a story. So it feels like only half a game. A setting to a beautiful book, just without a plot of characters.
Honestly this means that I will not be playing the new Star Wars Battlefront 2015 game. I’ll be spending my $60 on Star Wars Battlefront 2 2005 for the PS2. It’s so sad that a 10 year old game does better.
