Star Wars Battlefront Conversion Pack

Mod review - 1 agrees - 1 disagrees

This Mod has a great deal of potential but still has its fair share of crashes even with the patch. I want to believe it is because I have a crappy computer but actually it is quite strong.

New Maps:
There are two kind of new maps: Maps from the first Battlefront game and selfmade maps. The maps from the first game seem to run fine and well converted. The new maps are well made but has a tendency to frequently crash. This often happens when you play in "instant-mode" when the new maps are put onto the list.

New Game Modes:
The new game modes are fine and works without greater problems. They are not exactly as exciting as one may think but they are stable and fun most of the time.

New units:
The new units may be the most interesting part of this mod. There are many new heroes with different skills and appearances. You can now play as heroes from Knights of the Old Republic which is quite cool. Their appearances may not be perfect but you can live with it. The mod also includes new infantry units and vehicles. The infantry units are fun but doesn't add anything to gameplay. The inclusion of vehicles is great but sometimes you get the feeling that some of the maps are just too small for bigger vehicles.

New Galactic Conquest:
A new GQ is available which feature the Old Republic. The ideas is great but it lacks stability. It crashes every second planet you visit and as always this spoils the fun.

I won't say this mod is bad but it certainly lacks stability. Almost every 15 min. the game crashes and it happens especially when you do certain things like playing the new maps in instant mode or when playing GQ: The Jedi Civil war. A shame. It has great potential.
