Gonna try not to be biased as this one of the games I played for hours on end through the years until now as well!
I speedrun this, so I'm always happy for a buggy glitchy game, But the glitches in this are beyond me.

Achievements did not appear for the game on release week, one is currently unobtainable, and its mostly just grinding. How fun, lots of missed opportunities for some creative ones.
The loading sound was removed and changed for the 1st game, everything else worked fine on that, Now the second game, that's where the problems come in.

Missing assets on Naboo, like an entire wall is see through, Enemies and allies Even myself would spawn out of bounds on Naboo.
The new hero hunt mode for all maps completely breaks AI, on Kamino every enemy had no idea where to go, so they resorted to spinning in a circle then running off the edge.

Galactic conquest is broken if you play as the Empire and try to buy a new upgrade I was greeted with a crash every time, meaning I could not play that mode unless I was CIS, Rebels or Clones :(

Apart from that, the game is basically the same (if its not broke why fix it) In this case it was the company trying to add new things like the mode that broke it :(

Wait for Sale on this, or just buy the old ones on the xbox store. Much better.

Having these games on the Switch is nice. Well, it would be nice if these games were the games I wanted to be on the Switch. But not only are these not quite the games I wanted Battlefront on the Switch, they're barely even these games at all.

Conmanese to English translation: The experience of playing this is too kneecapped to say this is anywhere close to being Classic.™

Edited for clarity.

all they had to do was add online functionality to galactic conquest. maybe expand on it. and it could've been peak

I love the original Star Wars Battlefront games, including the two spin-offs that were released on PSP (especially Elite Squadron). Battlefront 1 had these beautiful maps and Battlefront 2 had way more features and way to play. Both were so great for so many reasons. So I was obviously going to be hyped for a fresh, modern way to play these games with friends.

... and now I'm extremely disappointed. My friends and I struggled to get into the same matches together, and once we were finally able to, it was a buggy mess as if we really were back in the mid-2000s. Battlefront 2 has a weird FPS lock online, control scheme is a bit messy, the game will just randomly crash, and you can't do campaigns and galactic assault with a friend online (only through splitscreen and remote-play together).

Nothing was really added to or improved upon with these titles. Sure, models and textures do look better for modern resolutions. Yes, there is proper lighting and an overall graphics quality increase. And of course we have the Xbox-exclusive DLC in Battlefront 2. But that's it. The multiplayer is dated and barely functional. Settings in general are VERY restricted. Some sound effects and tunes have also been completely replaced. This is just a massive letdown for a couple games that I have very fond memories of and still go back to on the PS2 and on Steam (2005 version of Battlefront 2).

I've refunded this game, and I urge everyone who wants a slice of nostalgia to pick up the original titles on Steam ($10/each) and mod them. I am so disappointed in Aspyr, especially after they just released a really solid remaster of the original Tomb Raider titles. Man, this is nothing like the simulations.

Can't believe I played 15 matches in 27 minutes

Glad i still have my PS2 versions. Crashing, bad controls, poor online, and stealing from modders make this probably Aspyrs worst port. At least I can play Rhen Var Harbor on the go.
