1. Star Wars: Battlefront
With Disney’s buying of Lucasfilm came the news that Electronic Arts would be producing and releasing several Star Wars video games, starting with the multiplayer shooter Star Wars: Battlefront. Created by game developers DICE, who have a solid reputation when it comes to multiplayer shooters, many were expecting great things from this game.
But while Star Wars: Battlefront did look gorgeous, with beautifully modelled storm troopers and hero characters like Luke Skywalker, and superbly rendered settings like the ice planet Hoth, the game was a shallow experience at best. It had a great multiplayer mode in Walker Assault, which allowed players to recreate the epic battle of Hoth from Star Wars, but other multiplayer modes wore thing quickly and wouldn’t keep gamers entertained for long. Also the lack of a single player campaign was a sore point in what was overall a disappointing Star Wars game.
