For $10 and with an offline skirmish mode against bots, Star Wars: Battlefront is totally worth it


Star Wars: Battlefront sold over 13 million copies across several platforms despite launching without a campaign or any meaningful single player content. The sequel, expected later this year,is supposed to have a full campaign and hopefully more love for single player gamers like myself. I’m not the biggest Star Wars fan but I’m a fan enough (really enjoyed the Force Unleashed duo and the original Knights of the Old Republic). I truly wanted to have a reason to buy Star Wars: Battlefront but the game simply wasn’t worth my hard-earned $60. Knock $50 off that and add a new game mode that let’s you experience some of that multiplayer madness offline against bots, and you have quite the irresistible package. This is arguably the best $10 I’ve ever spent. I had to wait a year and a half but it was worth it. It’s even gotten me really looking forward to the sequel. Be warned, though. The various DLC’s available are NOT playable offline. So if you’re thinking about buying this game just so you can play the Deathstar DLC (or any of the DLC’s) in the offline Skirmish mode, then skip this game. Unless of course, you’re in it for the multiplayer (which makes you a really worthless human being). Otherwise, if you’re OK with playing the small handful of maps in Skirmish mode then you can’t go wrong with this one. One last thing, you can’t manually choose your avatar. The game picks it for you. So if you don’t like the skin the game chose, simply hit restart and hope you get a more appropriate avatar for you.
