Star Wars: Battlefront II [DVD-ROM] [PC Game]
Developed by: Pandemic Studios - LucasArts (2005) - First-Person Shooter - Rated: Teen
Imperial soldiers and Rebel insurgents are called back to duty in Star Wars: Battlefront II, a multiplayer-oriented sequel shooter
based on the famous movie series. Like the original Battlefront, scenes are set in environments familiar from the films. For
example, mission maps in the sequel have players fighting on the swamp planet of Dagobah, as seen in Empire Strikes Back, or
defending Princess Leia's diplomatic blockade runner, as in the opening scene of the original A New Hope.
While designed to retain the features that helped make the original Battlefront the best-selling Star Wars game to date (at the time
of Battlefront II's release), the sequel's technological refinements allow for new gameplay elements as well. With seamless
transitions across an entire mission map, players could now begin a confrontation on their own capital ship, board a fighter to
engage the enemy in a dogfight, then land on the enemy's capital ship and disembark for an assault raid, all in a single battle.
In response to fan requests, playable Jedi characters are introduced by the sequel, allowing gamers to take control of heroes
such as Yoda, Grievous, or even the Emperor himself. To keep the battles balanced, players can only play as these hero
characters for a limited time, and may temporarily lose access to them if they are not used to their potential in battle. Once
again, the single-player game centers on a "Galactic Conquest" mode, but map-specific objectives add new tactical elements.
Online multiplayer modes support as many as 64 in the PC version of the game.
Special Features: Revamped single-player experience includes smarter ai enemies and allies, plus a greater emphasis on story told
through open-ended mission-based objectives; new space battles allow you to dogfight in X-wings, TIE fighters, Jedi starfighters
and several other starcraft, or fight it out on foot aboard an enemy capital ship; special opportunities throughout the game for
players to wield a lightsaber and use their favorite force powers as a Jedi; more than 16 new battlefronts on land and in space,
including many from Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith such as Utapau, Mustafar and the space battle above Coruscant;
all-new classic trilogy locations including the Death Star interior, classic space battles and the fight aboard the Tantive IV,
Princess Leia's blockade runner seen at the beginning of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope; online multiplayer action for up to 24
players on PS2, up to 32 on Xbox or up to 64 on PC Windows; created by critically acclaimed developer pandemic studios.
