Star Wars Battlefront IIIf you love the epic tale of Star Wars then get ready to take part in some of the epic battles from the films in Star Wars Battlefront II.  This is the second installment of the popular action game.

This installment is a bit different than the first of the series.  This is because you can now look at it from the dark side perspective.  You can follow the story of Darth Vadar’s elite 501st legion of stormtroopers, not to mention other stories.  You can see the massive destruction and terror that the dark side caused.  Or, perhaps help out the Rebellion.

Star Wars Battlefront II takes you to new locations that are found in Episode 3.  These locations are both on land and space.  Some locations include:  Utapau, Coruscant, Mustafa, Tantive IV, and the Deathstar!

Each level features open ended missions that were inspired by the 6 Star Wars films.  You may have a mission to assassinate someone, or to destroy an enemy ship.  Each mission allows you to do things as you see fit.  Throughout the levels, expect huge explosions and epic battles.  You will also get to experience some of the classic movie moments.

Some new features of this game are actually some of the most enjoyable.  You can now participate in dog fights aboard various vehicles.  These include X-wings, TIE fighters, Jedi Starfighters and more!  There is also a new dash ability that works out great if you are playing as a Sith or Jedi!

If you get really good at the game, you may have a chance to play as a Jedi, a Sith, or a bounty hunter.  Play as Yoda or Darth Mual and unleash your light saber.  Perhaps even show of some of the powers of the Force…

The musical score is outstanding as to be expected from a Star wars themed game!  The graphics also make you feel as if you are really in the game.  The AI is much more intelligent than that of the first in the Battlefront series.  The storyline is also much more captivating and enduring.  Lastly, the controls are very smooth and responsive.

Star Wars Battlefront II Is available on XBOX, Playstation 2, PSP, and PC.  It has an ESRB rating of T for teen.  This is because it contains violence and mild language.
