Star Wars: Battlefront II is a shooter developed by Pandemic Studios for LucasArts. It was released, depending on which continent you live on, in late October or early November 2005 as a sequel to Star Wars: Battlefront, which had been released the year before. The setting of the game is late in the Republic. Palpatine is still Chancellor Palpatine instead of Emperor Palpatine. You play a clone trooper fighting the separatists in a series of military missions. You also get the chance to play as a Jedi at various points in the game.
Get your clone trooper on and kill metric buttloads of homicidal droids.
We continue our dive into the bargain basements of the gaming world with Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. This is a third person, mostly, action adventure/jumping puzzle game developed and published by LucasArts. It was originally released in 2008 for multiple consoles. Versions for Mac OS and Windows came with the release of the Ultimate Sith Edition in 2009. A sequal, Star Wars: the Force Unleashed II, was released in 2010.
Star Wars: The Old Republic was first released in 2011, and adopted a free to play model in 2012. Recently, in 2015, Bioware began releasing content updates formatted as chapters for the Knights of the Fallen Empire expansion. With the new content, The Grumpy Old Guys take a look at this science fiction MMO-RPG to see if it’s worth jumping into, or back into, as the case may be. In addition to the graphics and overall gameplay, The Grumpy Old Guys evaluate the story and assess whether or not the game is truly “free to play.”
Smoak here. If you don’t count Dr. Chris’ announcement post below, then Yours Truly is your initial contributor to this feed. October/November will be a trying time for me, as far as providing console-game reviews for you. I’m just finishing Assassin’s Creed: Unity, just in time for Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate at the end of October. I’m just getting started with Mad Max, and will, of course, be doing Star Wars: Battlefront and Rise of the Tomb Raider in November.
Assuming I don’t lose my day job over staying home and fondling my controller (no lurid pun intended… or was it…?), then I’ll tell you all what I think about each of these titles right here. Stay Tuned!
