The Conversion Pack is a comprehensive add-on to the original Battlefront II. It adds 25 new maps - including all of the maps from Battlefront 1 not originally featured in Battlefront 2, 5 new gamemodes, a new era, and a substantial amount of expanded unit content to the original game.
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.
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.
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.
This Mod definably has a lot of content. however this is a doulbe edged Swrod. On the postive note, you get a lot more units and maps. If your bored of the regular version of SWBF2 then this might be what you are looking for. kotor mod era is probaly the best done part of this mod. Skins for that era are well done as well as the classes thmeselves for sith and republic sides.
Now the negitive note, This is one huge file. Its takes up 3-4 gigs of memory and you need to change your settings just so certian maps dont crash. Some of these maps are not as great as some people claim it to be. There are deffinably bugs here and there even if you do download the 2.2 patch. The units are...well look at it this way, sure there are more units but some of them are lazied down reskins of other characters. There is almost no variaty in special class weapns other than a slower cheaper version of pistols. Some of these character models are out dated by now and dont look very good. The hero characters...a lot of time are lazy reskins just thrown in. At first it seems like all the content makes up for it, but in the long run you will long for something more.
Installing can be a pain if you have a laptop or a less than decent computer. So my verdict is that there are far too many negatives than positves. So unless your a really big Battlefront fan, give it a try. However if you download this expecting for most thing to be perfect, then your time is best spent downloading "The ultimate clone Wars Mod" or Marvel4's BF1 conversion mappack which offers the most up to date BF1 maps with extra enviroment features and is 5xtimes smaller and easier on your computer.
