A Finnish Game Magazine, Pelit, gave the X360 version 85%. Got it from Gamerankings.com.

The Swedish magazine SuperPLAY gave the PS360 version of it 7/10.
Their main complaint was that some bosses "cheat" (like invulnerability or only very few hits registering sometimes, which he considered cheap)

Metacritic.com gave the 360 version a 71 out of 100, but it's a bunch of reviews, and there's heaps of different reviews on that site. The highest it got was 91.


Yes

I haven't read many reviews, but from what I gather talking to people is that it is a reasonably fun game, but nowhere near in the same realm as the JK series.

A glorified RotS game?

Not sure if you want to count this, but the show X-Play on G4 TV gave TFU a 2/5 stars on the 360 (which I'm sure their score would be the same on the PS3).

What seems curious to me, is that no one seems to remember battlefront 2, which was released withing 5 years, is a console game and pretty good... I actually still play it with my friends (dont have it myself, but a couple of them do). Dunno but i just found that odd...

But i trust in the wiseness of Pelit, thats actually the most neutrally crtical game magazine i have ever read... A shame that i had to stop ordering it, was too expensive. If its 85, its worth playing. Never let me down.

What's that got to do with TFU reviews?

Then that means it's awesome, I thought Battlefront II was a brilliant game.

I played the X-Box 360 version and I'll be honest - I'm addicted to watching the cut scenes over and over again. The dark side ending was particulaly amusing.

So all in all I would give it a 91% - it's officially my second favorite game.

My first favorite of course being KOTOR.

Please don't type in red, it hurts my eyes on the background, not to mention it's hard to read.

Anywho, Metacritic upgradedTFU's score from 71 to 72


Yes

You know what fundamental component I just realized this game is missing? Force pull! It sure would have been nice to have been able to disarm enemies, or to pull in that nearby holocron once within a reasonable range.

Yeah, that could have been you hold left trigger and then press "a" on 360 and "x" on PS3.
