Star Wars: Battlefront is a video game based on the Star Wars universe, developed by DICE and published by Electronic Arts, released in November 2015 on Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Star Wars: Battlefront is an action game playable in first person or third person, players can change the view at any moment. The game includes cooperative missions, but no campaign mode. Players can complete missions independently or with another player; The game supports split-screen on both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, excluding the PC release. The multiplayer mode supports up to 40 players (20 per team) with clashes between the Empire and the Rebel Alliance.

Unlike the first two “Star Wars Battlefront” very welcomed, some players violently criticized this third instalment. If the graphic beauty of the whole game and its perfectly smooth handling of the characters are undeniable, the core of the game was considered disastrous by purists for various reasons:

– In the first two games, the player could embody the imperial soldiers (Stormtroopers), rebel soldiers, clones or the droids of the Trade Federation. This time the player has only the choice between the imperial and rebel. In addition, if the player can choose sides, the player is not able any more to choose more type of troops that he will embody (basic soldier, soldier with anti-tank missile launchers, technician, driver or sniper) .

-Ten different planets were available as battlefields in the first game, twenty planets in the second set; Here, the player has the choice of four planets: Hoth, Tatooine, Endor and Sullust, which is considered pathetic for a game of this era.

-In the previous game, the player could embody one of twenty heros of the saga; Here, only Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Leia Organa, Darth Vader, Boba Fett and the Emperor are available.

-The game only includes fifteen missions that almost are all the same, which becomes boring and repetitive: the player must either confront an enemy squadron, or protect rescue capsules that function as camps to defend against enemy attacks.

-The success of the first two games was due to their large-scale battles (the player could have up to 700 soldiers in his camp and 700 soldiers facing him), here, the player is usually alone, can not use vehicles and faces just small groups of soldiers (and some times TR-TT’s) which is a huge regression.

These many shortcomings are the reason this game is considered a disappointment compared to the two previous games, released ten years earlier.
